  • I like the third, even it does appear to be listing a bit.  The first two, as someone else said, are overly saturated in the reds.  Or to restate, the rocks are too saturated.
  • We are not all gear obsessed, and we should absolutely discuss more of the non-technical and artsy parts of photography, but with all due respect DP Review is and always has been fundamentally ...
  • ...the attempt to objectify the ergonomics based on your personal subjective criteria to be almost ... offensive. I'm no Fuji fanboy, I've used DSLRs or mirrorless bodies from Minolta, Sony, Nikon, ...
  • Replied in I want option D
    Which is I don't care about the alternative or biblical lifestyles of any of my fellow photographers, or anyone else for that matter.
  • This is a gear forum, and it has long been dominated by people who, for better or worse, right or wrong, want to quantify as much as possible the performance of their gear and photography in ...
  • Replied in Have fun
    The most important lesson is to have fun. Always.  (P.S. Actually, now that I've written this post perhaps a better phrasing is to "enjoy yourself", rather than "have fun"). Aside from that, really ...
  • There is nothing that any of us can really say which will help.  You have three evenly balanced choices, only you know whether any size or glass sacrifice is worth the DOF change.
  • The first thing I see is the horizon isn't level.  The second thing that I notice is that while I like the composition, the canyon itself seems too dark.  Maybe if you brightened the left side of ...
  • Actually, no its not necessarily against the rules. 17. Bumping and cross-posting is not explicitly disallowed but is frowned upon and if abused will result in the removal of posts. As a guide, one ...
  • I'd argue that the maze is bewildering because of the inability for most consumers to personally see, touch and experience most photographic products. If I want a new phone I go to my phone ...
  • The purpose of these three photos matters a lot. For example the first photo could be demonstrating the two different types of rock occurring here. The second photo could be a photo of the types ...
  • Probably at least an 8 stop filter.
  • Replied in No
    I don't even know how to turn it on.
  • Again, personal preference.  Over the past decade I've heavily used DSLRs from Minolta, Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus and Fuji.  For my preferences I prefer the Fuji functionality the best. I have ...
  • Again, that's your shooting style. Many people aren't so viewfinder centric.
  • I think that the appeal of Fuji ergonomics is the simplicity, and the ability to see whats going on as soon as you take your camera out of the bag (with it still off).  While you can adjust ...
  • For you that is true, for many other users that is not true. Ergonomics are a very personal decision.
  • If you are buying a Fuji camera you are doing it for the exterior controls or the lenses. If you are buying a Sony FF those are not your priorities, video might be.  The "best" sensor might be.  ...
  • NPS website says "From December 1, 2014 through April 30, 2015, all access to Zabriskie Point and surrounding area is closed for major rehabilitation work to repair unstable support walls and ...
  • Replied in I am at peace
    Over the past decade I have used systems from Minolta, Sony, Pentax, Nikon, Olympus and Fuji.  I have enjoyed using all of them - really.  I have switched systems in an effort to do something a ...
