  • Replied in Get the STM
    In addition to sharpness and silent focusing during video you'll also find the STM version to: - focus more quickly. This will be mostly noticeable when obtaining initial focus. - have a ...
  • Replied in Too limiting
    Presumably designed to fulfil the needs of the small proportion of landscape photographers for whom a FF DSLR kit is too big, an APS-C sensor too small and existing Sony FF mirrorless too... whatever.
  • Replied in additionally
    What I meant (but didn't properly convey) is: - The helmets will put some faces in shade and some in direct sunlight. These may be in the same shot, with players facing the same direction - I.e. if ...
  • I'd get the full res photo and clean that up with some good noise reduction software. The results still won't be great as the picture is very underexposed but they'll be significantly better than ...
  • Neither are they, hence the rather loose and contradictory wording :-) When they say "dodging and burning may be acceptable if the ... objective was to adjust the tonal range of an image so that it ...
  • A fair few years ago I spent ages analysing the various 70-200 zooms. Not having much spare cash meant the phrase 'buy cheap, buy twice' kept going round my head. My findings were: - Canon's 70-200 ...
  • He didn't imply that anyone did, but wrote it to add context to: "fab value for money and weight though, which is why I have it."
  • Replied in additionally
    This is tothe original poster but it's essentially a more waffley version of your post so I've made it as a reply to yours. Good advice but I'm wondering if that'll work with those shade-providing ...
  • Replied in Manor
    They're a sort of new F1 team that have been having trouble getting their cars out: http://m.autosport.com/news/report.phpcars118316 http://manorf1team.com/#
  • Replied in F1 photography
    Crumbs, you don't like sharpening do you! :-) Nice not to see halos etc from over sharpening but doing at least a little would make em so much better. yuyucheu possibly agrees with me. http://a3.fo ...
  • Guessing in a dimly lit environment in AI Servo while trying to track an erratically moving subject that's not particularly 'contrasty' in between the shutter actuations at high fps you'll see a ...
  • (1) Much of it is about shallow depth of field. (2) Most seem to go for a lighter lens over the 70-200 f2.8 - the most common criticism is about size and weight.
  • There's no wrong answer to this. I'd be tempted to pair the 55-250 with an EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens... of course that's twice the price of the 18-200 - £300 vs £150. My reasoning would ...
  • Replied in Get rid
    It contains some BS, some half-truths and some too wordy and overly techy stuff that both loses the reader and probably doesn't apply to them anyway. I was particularly amused by the suggestion ...
  • Replied in Starting off!
    Landscape: you'll use all focal lengths from wide angle to telephoto. I find the telephoto gets used more than the ultra-wide angle lens. Portraits: it's not about the lens but the lighting and ...
  • 1. It is trivial to make perfect copies into whatever the 'next' image format is. It is also trivial to coy an entire collection from one hard drive to another large scale storage medium (both ...
  • As a general rule, if it doesn't also have a socket for monitoring with headphones then the mic socket is somewhat of an afterthought. I presume you've already installed Magic Lantern on your ...
  • Personally I'd copy them to a hard drive. That way the entire correction can be re-copied effortlessly, whether to other hard drives, the cloud or whatever. Overcoming obsolescence and ...
  • The main reason for in-lens image stabilisation is better autofocus performance, particularly in AI Servo (tracking autofocus), done in conjunction with shooting at high frames per second. If the ...
  • It depends: - You always lose two stops of light - It depends on the lens and teleconvertor whether the camera knows about the reduced aperture. e.g. my Sigma teleconvertor does this with my Sigma ...
