  • I wonder if this entire camera size debate is all in the photographer's head. Argument has been made that this or that camera looks silly big, or that camera draws too much attention. Reality is ...
  • Mechanical shutter has rolling shutter problem as well, but not as pronounced. Flash sync is around 1/250 sec, so that is the time it takes for the shutter to move down. If the object moves in ...
  • Too bad, for APS-C sized camera with small viewfinder, Katzeye was the best with their custom screens. Their split prism was big enough to focus clearly. Regardless, it was still difficult to do ...
  • ljmac: Be careful thinking this is a piece of glass like you are use to. They describe it as a receiving antenna and a transmitting antenna. Is not a glass as we understand it. More like a...

  • How silly it was to think $1k for a camera is going to be the most expensive part. That and 3 fast lens, would be all that I ever want. hahaha Then again, looking back, one camera and one lens ...
  • The only fixed chromatic aberration. Didn't say anything about brightness or light transmission.
    They shined a laser onto a tiny receiving gold antenna, and re-transmit the signal with a...

  • Nikon 1 has about 9 lens right now, but only 2 of them are waterproof. One is the normal zoom, and the other 27mm eq fixed lens. The rest of the lens lineup is not waterproof, but covers ...
  • I have the current silver model. Like others have said, the only thing good about the gopro is first person view. The fisheye lens has a wide angle of view. All along the edge of the frame is ...
  • What is optimized lens. Look at this thread: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3698183 Mirrorless lens are not that much lighter than DSLR lens. Glass is glass, and is more dependent on sensor ...
  • 1/8000 will probably not stop action any better than 1/4000. The rate the shutter move across the sensor is still going to be slow, is just the light slit that gets smaller. You are still going to ...
  • Replied in Cherry pies
    His comparison is not valid because he was comparing two different class of lens. Suggested a very even comparison. Same generation, same series and exact focal length equivalence that he needs: ht ...
  • Replied in Cherry pies
    The facts are the fact. No need to manipulate the fact to suit anyone's need. Which ever system is best wins. I am not a Sony shrill that put out these fictitious one sided videos. Using FF lens on ...
  • Replied in Wrong again
    I should have the right to evaluate other people's suggestion instead of accepting them blindly. In the case of 180mm f2.8 versus 300mm f4, there are issues with the comparison. Different ...
  • Multiple camera manufacture has entry level cameras that pretty much use the same sensor as their more expensive cameras. Nikon has that as well. Typically, you loose on features and build. For ...
  • You do realize the Nikon 300mm f4 and 180mm f2.8 are both FF lens. Hard to make a FF to APS-C comparison with two full frame lens. Suppose you use the FF lens on a crop frame camera. Crop frame is ...
  • Size and weight is NOT really the advantage for NX1. I looks like a DSLR and weights close to one too. The 16-50 f2-2.8 lens is huge. Besides, in terms of weight, whether is mirrorless or not, the...

  • I already stated equivalent cost and weight only applies to high end APS-C that are at the borderline of full frame. Guess arguing over how I wrote the paragraph is not really productive. That is ...
  • Reading the first post again, I can see how people can take the message as only buy full frame and not APS-C in every case. I think in this environment we are in with corporate shrills hocking ...
  • I think you are reading way too much into the exact words on the posts. I don't expect anyone to take my exaggerated recommendation literally. Full frame starts at $1500. People realize there are ...
  • I would say people who buys D7100 with the premium Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 lens are not the same buyers who are looking at a D3300 at Costco. You are paying more for a D7100, but you are also getting ...
