  • Replied in iPhone NR
    This is great work! I always hoped for a method to reduce NR settings on iPhone. At least this shows it is possible for regular photos... It's interesting that you were able to find how to tweak it ...
  • Man, I would love to buy one of these but am in USA. If there is anyone will to facilitate a buy and ship (for both me and HeavyDuty ), please let me know!!
  • Didn't you read the story? Taking photos of brick walls does not decrease the enjoyment of said walls.

  • Where were these taken? The first picture is a beautifully composed shot of a beautiful place! :-)
  • Yeah, it would basically be a smaller version of Sony's E Mount which was re-purposed into FE mount. Same mount, different sensor sizes with optional cropping as needed. Most of the E-Mount lenses ...
  • So maybe I'm missing something, but- Shorter flange distance means the rear lens element(s) can be closer to the sensor (which would require stronger retrofocal group)- but they don't have to be. ...
  • Boy you just wasted everyone's time here!! ;-);-):-D
  • Replied in Flange distance?
    Wouldn't that just be a matter of lens design? Meaning you could have the same exact lens with 2 different flange distances, the lens would just be slightly longer in one case (with equivalent ...
  • Replied in Computar-
    Hi borami, thanks for the info on the new Nikon 1 bodies. I guess you get metering in M mode, but no functional P/A/S modes? Do you have any samples of the Computar 12.5 with your Nikon 1? I might ...
  • I think the great Nikon 18.5mm f/1.8 shows what is possible for Nikon 1, when Nikon decides to make a 'enthusiast' class lens, rather than countless slow kit zoom iterations or a 32mm f/1.2 lens ...
  • Thanks so much for the battery of tests! How well does the IBIS stabilize video?
  • I would have loved a 1/1000 mechanical shutter, but have been happy with the GF7 including shooting some equestrian. I'm sure there is some jello effect if I were to carefully study photos, but for ...
  • The Google Photos Backup application lets you select which folders to watch, and will automatically back up new images in those folders. So as long as your NAS is mounted and accessible via your ...
  • Google Photos is great for casual use- by that I mean the unlimited option is for up to 16MP images, and I'm not sure if photos or video are modified at all after uploading. But it is incredibly ...
  • Replied in Yes and No...
    The M2 might be a cheaper upgrade, it has faster AF than the M, though I don't know how the M2 and M3 compare. I found a M2 on eBay for a very good price.
  • Replied in Loud shutters-
    Thanks for the reply Harold. I now have an M and an M2 in hand. As you say the M2 has a different shutter sound- a bit longer and louder. But it's still relatively quiet for a mirrorless camera. I ...
  • How about some bondage and punishment threads??? ;-)
  • Replied in Loud shutters-
    If a quieter shutter is a priority for you, the Fuji X cameras are not particularly quiet. The newer Fuji bodies have silent electronic shutter option though (the X-E1 doesn't.) Not sure how the ...
  • LOL. :-) I thought by 'Nikon 1 forum contributors' you meant me.
  • I have no idea what you're talking about- were you inferring I was blaming Nikon somehow? My point was that there would be no excuse for Tamron (technical or otherwise) for these sorts of ...
