Chris Mak's recent activity

  • I've used a few older (FF) lenses on digital, but eventually you want digital designed lenses to get appealing out of the box images. That's why I did not consider the Pentax FA ltd's lenses for ...
  • Pentax does very well in the Apsc department, so I don't know if you would want to look for IQ improvement in an absolute sense when considering FF. It is simply a different system, and especially ...
  • As long as your monitor gamut is close to srgb, you're fine with Edge. The larger your monitor gamut, the more inaccurately saturated the colors will be. Chris
  • Not similar, but equally tedious, my Eizo display suddenly went black during windows update of the KB numbers you mention. I have the monitor on an EVGA gtx750ti graphic card connected to the ...
  • Nice Ron, branches, trees and sticks, what would birds be without them? I sometimes like to philosophize about the ancient relationship between birds and trees Chris
  • Let me re-phrase that: I meant to say: the people at Microsoft assume that all monitors are either made to display graphics in the srgb color space or set to srgb and all graphics and images are ...
  • It will mostly be a loss if you have a higher end camera, and do a lot of photo editing from Raw. Processing from the large camera's raw color space into srgb can drain the color right out of ...
  • Certainly not! For the D810, Nikon has a different version of this 36mp sensor. Just look at the true measured iso values at the lowest iso camera settings. From what I have read about this ...
  • Ming Thein also reviewed the Sony A7r, and did not mention muddy shadows in that review. He mentions it specifically for the sony A7rII. The Sony A7r 36mp sensor generation is of course dated, but ...
  • Fine, although I would not now how that pertains to Ming Thein's review? I meant to point to the notion in his review, that the new 42mp sensor in the Sony A7rII is at least in his opinion not ...
  • wonderful series Mike! Chris
  • The question is: do we want it to? A good read is also Ming Thein's review of the Sony A7rII. He clearly favors the Nikon D810, (that features a modified more expensive to produce version of the ...
  • Just for fun, a recent image taken with the A7r and a ZK lens. This camera reminds me a lot of the K5IIs, in tonality and color rendition. The newer K3(II) sensor has a different look. I thought ...
  • One of the first, yes, a year ago ;-) The Sony A7r has no resale value, and is a great camera for my needs. But when it wears out, my next one will be a Pentax for sure. Chris
  • Great! I am looking forward to forum activity by the early adopters before the end of the year! Chris
  • Great shots Arijit! I like the second one best, the tail is striking! Chris
  • If only one prime, then 28mm, but on FF. With the coming Pentax FF, that no doubt will have a 36mp sensor at least, and the planned release for primes next year, it will be interesting to see what ...
  • Nice capture Dean! Exotic bird to my eyes, nothing I could really compare it to here in western europe. But then again, I just last week for the first time saw Bee Eaters on holiday in Italy, what ...
  • So, Pentax doing well as far as product development and reception. Ricoh also doing well as the big company supporting the Pentax division. All looking rather rosy I would say, so now there's room ...
  • Almost 15 years of waiting. In the meantime we have seen the rise and fall of Olympus 4/3, the advent of fuji mirrorless, the takeover by Sony of Minolta, and the introduction of their mirrorless ...
