    We need 4K video of the flogging or it didn’t happen.

  • “The idea is to use as low a shutter speed as possible, that's basically the idea with panning.”
    That is a very basic way to look at the problem. A more precise way to look at it is that you need...

  • @Barney

    What did you have in mind? My 2nd choice would have been Turk182. Would that have been better?

  • Commented on P1000725 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    A great image. I really like the low angle of view.

  • Commented on P1010102 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Cool shot. I really like the reflection of the helmet.

  • I am not trying to single you out specifically. This thing happens every single time dpreview posts images for m4/3s cameras. I am just trying to express that this type of mistake makes it look...

  • Commented on P1000325 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Yes I agree that hindsight is always 20:20. However, it is very obvious that most people shoot with m4/3s cameras in the exact same fashion as full frame cameras. That is a mistake for the...

  • It has absolutely everything to do with the aperture value. If you are panning and your speed does not quite match the subject then the faster your shutter speed is the more forgiving the image...

  • @Sam

    I simply don’t buy your argument. The shots at F22 were at very slow shutter speeds and absolutely everything in the image was blurry including the subject. Simply using F8.0 would have...

  • Commented on P1000325 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Using a faster shutter speed could have reduced the blurring in the car without greatly affecting the blurring of the surroundings. This shot was simply botched by the photographer because of a...

  • You are far better off to shoot in shutter priority mode with Auto ISO with the Panasonic m4/3s cameras and telephoto lenses. Don’t worry about the aperture so much. It isn’t full frame. You don’t...

  • I really liked the content of the images. However, far too many of them were simply ruined by stopping down too far. That produced motion blur, shutter shock blurring, and low detail images because...

  • Commented on P1000206 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Well looky there? F8.0 and a fast shutter speed and everything cleaned up nicely. Why weren’t all of the images shot like this one instead of stopping down way to far?

  • Commented on P1000319 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    That is a pretty horrible image through no fault of the cameras what so ever.

  • Commented on P1000324 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Again stopped down way too far but it didn't ruin the image as much as it did for the last one.

  • Commented on P1000325 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    A great idea for a picture poorly executed. The idea of an image like this is to make the car sharp and blur the background. Everything is blurry in this picture simply because the user stopped...

  • Commented on P1010415 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    If anything shoot the same thing with several different apertures and demonstrate why this shouldn’t be done with m4/3s. Too many people see this and think stopping WAY too far down is the best way...

  • Commented on P1010415 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Why choose F16 here? The image still has shallow depth of field even at F16 and yet this is way too far into diffraction. There is absolutely no reason to choose F16 over F8 here and this was shot...

  • Commented on P1010487 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    F14 was not the right choice here with M4/3s even at 100mm. That is well into diffraction and the depth of field was infinite. Did the camera incorrectly choose this aperture or did the user?

  • It seems like Canon has said “It doesn’t matter how well our cameras do in tests. They still sell even if there are better options”. Why would or even should Canon change if consumers still keep...
