  • Created discussions User created articles retired.
    I suppose that this is news, although it has not been listed as such. I got a mail from dpreview that the user created articles system will be retired next monday and that the articles will be ...

  • "how would you propose to set the aperture of a Nikon lens properly accurately and reproducibly on an A7R"

    by using the meter? (just a thought)

  • In what format do you send them the files?
  • Exactly. On-camera flashes or low-end studio flashes have speeds around 1/300s at full power. That is not sufficient to freeze water spray. High-end studio generators (e.g. Profoto Pro-8 or the ...
  • I don't think that you understand what I am saying, but since it is not the question that was originally asked (which was about light meters), I will suggest that we close the discussion at that ...
  • That is not quite true. The high end flash manufacturers have developed moderately sized flash heads and generator with a short flash duration at full power. Look for figures labelled t0.1 or t0.5 ...
  • It is not my Credo, but yes, one can take a few pictures at various settings to get an idea of the correct exposure. It is still slower and more complex than having a dedicated meter. Indeed, I ...
  • The principle aren't really applicable, no. Or, more precisely, they are only applicable under the max sync speed, which is much lower for a focal plane shutter (typically 1/125s, since we are ...
  • What you are saying does not apply to the camera of the OP, which uses a central shutter and not a focal plane shutter like your 5D2.
  • Good question. I checked the various flash meter manufacturers on the market and it seems that nobody makes a meter which goes faster than 1/1000s for flash speed. But maybe your camera has a ...
  • Actually, recent MF lenses are much better than 35mm lenses, especially for wide-angle lenses. The idea that MF lenses needed to cover a wider field but did not need as high a resolution per mm...

  • "I don't see the need to choose flash over reflection pads."
    That is what I thought until I tried a reflection pad with a live model and she could not keep her eyes open with the sunlight reflected...

  • Hasselblad has an adapter to mount the old V lenses on the new H cameras.

  • The backs can be mounted on other cameras, for example technical cameras (look e.g. at Sinar, a manufacturer of this kind of cameras, to find out what they are). Technical cameras allow for...

  • Since nobody comments on the article but on its presentation, I would like to point out that: -I found the extra spacing elegant and reminiscent of text typed on a typewriter and had no problems ...
  • At the risk of stating the obvious, a 8"x10" print is 203mm x 254mm in metric units. I would print at that size on A4 paper (*) and invest in a roll cutter to trim the paper to the US size. (*: ...
  • But that is the point: I compare Asia to the west because they are different. In France, for a large part of the population, weddings used to be about status and prestige for the family. As long as ...
  • Then you are a better pro than they are. The objective of a pro is not to "be creative", it is to produce what the customer want, isn't it?
