pforsell's recent activity

  • AF-S motor adds girth not length. And the high quality, machined metal focusing helicoids of the Leica weigh more than the flimsy plastic Nikkor ones. The ring motor itself is light, I have one ...
  • Replied in New mount
    Small potential? How about Leica 35/1.4 vs Nikkor 35/1.4? ...
  • Replied in New mount
    To me the main point in mirrorless is compactness. Hence using the old long register length F-mount lenses would be extremely counter-intuitive, cumbersome and clunky. New mount with new lenses ...
  • When I bought my first DSLR way back when Nikon did not offer any other alternative. So the main reason was lack of options. As I had started with Nikon film cameras back in the days when the ...
  • Replied in Off-camera flash
    If you need to shoot in total darkness (or nearly so), using flash equipped with a 1/1 CTO (or stronger) warming gel might be handy. Gel filters are an easy way to drop the flash color temperature ...
  • LOL. I could only click thumb up once. This post would have required more!
  • :-D I wanted to add this shot from a museum camera. D3S at ISO 51,200 in tungsten light which is the worst possible. Daylight shots at 51200 are pretty clean as we all know, but tungsten shots are ...
  • Replied in D4
  • Perhaps you should do a monitor recalibration? The SPP photos all have a murky green cast over them. Even the sky is green. While the colors that Adobe produced look more neutral, those seem to ...
  • Replied in Not a dandelion
    Looks like a sow thistle or some other related plant of the genus Sonchus , probably Sonchus Arvensis but definitely not a Taraxacum . But hey, you could try to get into the Guinness book with the ...
  • Replied in Oh yes!
    Oh yes, and its sister model D3S too. I have to admit that I also shoot with the D2X and D1X cameras regularly. There is something about the Nikon 'X' models... :-D
  • Perhaps the focusing screen didn't get perfectly reseated after you replaced it? Have you tried removing and inserting it back again?
  • how about Lumix LX100 aka Leica D-LUX Typ 109?
  • First cheap camera: 15 years old ($50 used) Nikon D1H $50 camera Then cheap lens (Schneider-Kreuznach Componar-C 4/75 enlarger lens $10 off ebay: $10 lens Same bug from another vantage point $10 lens ...
  • Replied in Perfectly said!
    You said it perfectly. The other posters then? This "factory sealed cardboard box" issue is yet another first world problem. I envy people whose the biggest problem in this life is whether a toybox ...
  • For social media you'll likely publish your shots at 1 megapixel or so, right? Just use you 18 mm, shoot from 10 feet distance, frame very loosely so you have plenty of empty space around your ...
  • It should be '150 beforementioned plants produce in a year'. Sorry.
  • Replied in some numbers
    The average energy content of a 70 kg male human body is about 750 MJ (megajoules), or 208 kWh (kilowatt hours). Burning 6 billion sundried human cadavers would produce about 1250 TWh (terawatt ...
  • Nope. The OP said he wants the same framing but is ready to be flexible on perspective, which means that subject-to-camera distance (perspective) can be varied in order to get the same framing ...
  • That isn't expensive, you're holding back. Trying to save your monies for the great beyond? To me expensive is the opposite of affordable or valuable, meaning something of low value priced ...
