KCampbell's recent activity

  • I hadn't paid much attention to micro-focus adjustment since I shoot so much landscape with relatively small apertures, but after buying an 85mm 1.8 and a 50mm 1.4 and seeing the difference ...
  • The Phase Detect autofocus method used by DSLRs is faster because a single measurement enables the system to determine how much, and in which direction, the focus has to be adjusted. Contrast ...
  • Replied in Did long ago
    I've got X100 and X-Pro1 with 3 lenses. It's nice to have a much smaller, much lighter alternative - especially with the X100. With Canon now I almost only ever shoot with TS-E 17 and TS-E 24 and ...
  • Replied in 95% OVF, 5% EVF
    I bought both cameras for the hybrid OVF, and that's what I use the overwhelming majority of the time. Kevin
  • I've been completely and utterly satisfied with my Acratech Ultimate Ballhead - exquisitely made, relatively light, and locks up solid without straining anything. Bob Rigby ...
  • Replied in 35mm for me
    I find 35mm to be the most natural focal length on full frame, and if I had to limit myself to a single focal length this would probably be it. Kevin
  • Hello, and welcome. I mean this as a sincere question: why has the time come for a DSLR? What is about your current camera that you feel is limiting your creative expression? Are there specific ...
  • Whether it's an essay, a report or a photograph, one of the most important skills to develop is a critical eye for your own work - the ability to look at it as if it were done by someone else. The ...
  • Assuming you shoot JPG make sure you've set the camera for "large" and fine - whichever setting gives you the biggest file size, as that will make the fewest compromises to image quality through ...
  • I wasn't unhappy with the noise on this example. Kevin
  • As mentioned there's a lock switch in addition to the friction screw, and I've had no problem with mine even if I don't use the lock tab. Kevin
  • The choice of focal length is entirely driven by the subject and distance, there's no way for anyone to provide a useful answer without more information. Why low light? Kevin
  • This question comes up quite often, you'll find lots of advice in addition to the suggestions already provided if you search. Kevin
  • Replied in Most are better
    My 24-105 is the least sharp of the Canon lenses I own bar 1, but that's not to say there's anything wrong with it. It's soft as you approach the edges when shooting at the wide end, but contrast ...
  • Replied in Autumn sunshine
    Winthrop, WA. X100.
  • At the moment there's a huge gulf between the quality of a full frame reflex viewfinder and even the very best EVFs, akin to the difference between looking out the window and looking at the image ...
  • Replied in I can't see it
    I wonder if what you're seeing is an example of posterization, where your display lacks sufficient tonality to display all the very similar, yet slightly different, tones involved? Can you post a ...
  • For a very modest amount of money you can get a 3rd party extension tube set which will include a number of different lengths to use individually or together - you get to choose how close you want ...
  • Not only is the TS-E 17 wide to start with, but you can stitch shifted images together to get even greater coverage, or just use shift to correct for perspective Shifted vertically and stitched Shi ...
  • I've no experience with the 40mm, but the 35mm f/2 is an excellent lens - and significantly lighter than the IS version. Kevin
