  • I agree, but the lighting in my house is nowhere near that good. Like I said, BEST I've seen is 1/15th, ISO 1600. I'd need 3.5 stops more light to get to 1/60th, ISO 640, and that's BEST case. ...
  • I find anything above 1600 ISO on the G6 to be too noisy for my tastes.
  • Right now in my house at noon I can get only 1/15s at f/3.5 and ISO 1600 (anything beyond ISO 1600 on the G6 is way too noisy for my tastes).  Other times of day I get only 1/6s or 1/8s.  So a ...
  • Hi sigala1, Yep, hindsight is 20/20. Artistry has never been my concern.  Had I known then what I know now, I would've bought the FZ200 and an external flash and been done with it.  Now I find ...
  • Hi Yannis1976, I was in the same boat about 6 months ago.  My primary objective was good low-light performance (by that I mean inside the house, not in the dark), and I went with the G6. I am quite ...
  • Hi dtmateojr, I won't condescend to the name-calling, but I think your explanation is wrong because the distance the light travels does NOT start at the lens.  It starts at the SUBJECT, and the ...
  • Hi gollywop, What I meant is it wasn't me who cited it at all. I said there's a lot of misinformation out there (in general); it was somebody else who posted the specific citation.
  • Hi gollywop, Well maybe it does. Maybe noise is dirt on the inside walls of the container. Since a wider container holds more total water in relation to dirt, the water/dirt (signal/noise) ratio is ...
  • Hi szak1352, I, too, appreciate MarshallG's approach. And I also appreciate the theoretical approaches of many others in this thread. There are lots of really good photographers here who take lots ...
  • Hi Great Bustard, I agree!  It's definitely not a light read, but it's very informative.  I got MUCH more from it than I paid for it.  It's absolutely amazing to me how much misinformation is out ...
  • Hi Great Bustard, I finally worked my way through this -- there's a lot there!  I'm pretty sure I understand most of it, but I'd like to restate something in my own words to see if I have it right. ...
  • Replied in Here ya go:
    Hi Joe, Yes, it does, in this paragraph: And I came to the same conclusion from the responses in this thread. What a great forum! It's funny because when I read that the first time, I thought, ...
  • Hi jrtrent, I think the math works out because it's an identity, much like those math tricks where you double your age, then halve it later, and surprise, you end up with your age.  In this case, ...
  • Hi gollywop, Your response makes sense to me.  The one on the cited web page does not. Exactly.  Either way the light travels from the SUBJECT to the sensor (not from the LENS to the sensor), and ...
  • Hi Erik, OK, I understand this, but I'm missing the connection between your answer and my question. Are you saying the same total light comes through the lens, but more of it ends up outside the ...
  • Hi Great Bustard, Because I'm nowhere near smart enough to have written that. I've been plodding through it at a snail's pace, and although I'm not quite finished (almost, though!), I do have some ...
  • Replied in More detail.
    Hi Great Bustard, This is a most excellent article.  It separates the ideas of exposure vs. brightening (i.e. amplification), which is exactly what I was trying to do in my mind. I do have a ...
  • Hi gollywop, This diagram tells me a different focal length must be employed in order to project the same FOV onto a different sensor size, which makes perfect sense. What had me confused was that ...
  • Hi Marshall, Well in the United States our number system is base 10, even though we don't really use it in the real world (inches, feet, yards, etc.), but I understand your point.  I also ...
  • Hi Chris, More specifically what confused me is that the specs for a lens often call out its 35mm equivalent.  But now I understand that's because there's an implicit assumption about the sensor size.
