  • Dual card slots aren't really about memory capacity as memory cards have gotten to the capacity of not needing to switch out for most scenarios, they are for backup and or writing images raw in one...

  • Lenmar makes great batteries as well. I'd trust them over the other no-name third party batteries which could be shoddy in terms of circuitry even though the problems are relatively rare.

  • Replied in Makes me realize
    how huge of a deal the new canon af is: "Dual Pixel CMOS AF' design in which every single pixel is split into two separately-readable photodiodes, facing left and right. This means that in...
  • Ok so you're either downplaying the situation or you didn't realize how bad it was. Sony gave Olympus roughly $645 MILLION DOLLARS to help keep them afloat. If it wasn't for this investment Olympus...
  • I have a feeling it won't happen because it would be stepping on Sony's toes and Olympus at this point has zero incentive to do this and if anything there could be some kind of agreement somewhere....
  • These new bodies from sony look downright classy and ooze quality just from how they look imo. There is simple straight-forward approach here that appeals to photographers and they didn't just...
  • Canon doesn't know what the heck they're doing? You're saying this meanwhile Olympus has been on the verge of being wiped out and still aren't safe yet! I like my olympus stuff but one thing I...
  • I'm sorry not moire but aliasing, you can usually get the effect really easily by applying even the slightest of sharpening to a photo with lots of hard lines so its safe to assume that aliasing is...
  • It doesn't detract from the image for me and I'm sort of used to it as the 5d on occasion will have moire. I'd say its filter is perhaps just a touch stronger. Some people preferred the output of...
