  • Thanks for the input. I have hard time accepting the complexity of exposure argument. I have used some 45 DSLR and mirrorless cameras and most (basically all) do not have such difficulty figuring ...
  • Created discussions Nikon 1 V3 underexposes
    Hi, I am new to Nikon 1 system. I've had V3 for about a week. Still cannot figure out source of underexposed images in many situations in all P/S/A modes, and seemingly regardless of metering mode. ...
  • Thank you very much for the input. I sent the lens back to Sony for service. We'll see what they say. My concern is that it would not be easy to convince them that something is wrong, since there ...
  • Thanks, I actually have a chart; but I in general do not like to test telephoto lenses using a chart. Those should be tested at infinity (or at least long distance) when possible. They often ...
  • Thanks. Two points - for me 200mm is extremely weak, but not 70mm or most of the range. Also, for telephoto lenses it is important to test them using distant objects, if possible infinity focus, ...
  • Results are similar with two bodies - A7 and A6000. So I do not think body is the problem. I have tried it several way using AF-S, AF-C and manual - same thing. Tried optical stabilization on and ...

  • It so happens that I have one for sale, if you need it. :) $50 sounds like a good price.
  • This would be short: interesting concept, still not sure that even in best execution it would be reasonable and interesting alternative to regular photography; but Lytro is totally useless - ...
  • I was offered to shoot USA Argentine Tango Championship. I used Nikon and Sony. Sony mainly for fun to see how it would do in low light with FE Zeiss 55mm. It was fun overall. Focusing was not as ...
  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I get the point of this article. But when I used Nikon AW camera 1" sensor could not even produce results comparable the best smartphones in good light. Do not know how this is possible… Forget...
