  • How do you set an Olympus OM-D to continuous AF, fastest fps? I have never figured that out when I have played with those camera bodies in a store. To me the menu system is totally confusing.

  • Now you got a perfect model that never objects and something to practice action shooting with.... Young dogs are wonderful happy beings, full of life and affection. Congratulations (or maybe it ...
  • One of the things that bothered me when I shot with a few mirrorless some years ago was the need to have the EVF switched off, when not in use because of the battery drain. Maybe this is better ...
  • Replied in Nikon is right
    For the kind of shooting the Nikon D4S now in the frontage of DPReview is built for, an EVF with lag and timing problems doesn't cut it.
  • Photo Art Galleries actually seems to prefer film as an artistic media over digital.
  • There is no HDR in any of the shots. The lamp is a low energy type with very weak intensity.
  • Replied in Which is "best"?
    High speed B&W film, ISO 1600. DSLR shot at ISO 1600: To me the sterile character of the digital shot is obvious, never mind it has less grain/noise.
  • Tonality and color is something people see and react to even if it is hard to measure. I would say that bad color is much more disturbing than slightly visible grain to most people.
  • But the grain is never sharp, is it? Its kind of muddy, maybe that is why you think film grain looks like digital noise. In my experience it is hard to get really sharp film grain even on high ...
  • What kind of scanner? Most that are rated at 4000 dpi never reach that number in real life. So why are you using a Sigma? Because ordinary RGB sensors has some shortcomings that never enters the ...
  • If photography is the aim of the trip I would take the FF. If enjoying the trip itself is the most important, then I would take the lighter stuff.
  • Film grain does not look like digital pixels. Here is from Ming Theins film diaries: "I’ll be honest, though: putting the slides on the light table and flicking the lamps on was a revelation. I was ...
  • Its about tones, colors, smooth high lights, etc. Its about the overall impact of what people see and how they respond to it. A good executed film shot often gets very good response from people. ...
  • Its not only your post and not only about Hillary. The amount of negative campaigning in the US is staggering. I was once in NY during a midterm election and was disgusted by the constant stream ...
  • Calling her "pathological liar" isn't far from it, dont you think? Don't you people ever discuss politics instead of making personal attacks?
  • US politics seems to an outsider as if hate and mudslinging totally has replaced debates and exchanges of ideas.
  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    If I was hired for shooting a senior executive - probably a good paying job – I would not like to show up with a camera he might own himself for taking snapshots of the family.

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    A few thoughts on battery life and action/sports shooting. Battery life rated 500 images - that is 33 seconds of shooting bursts at 15 fps. How does the battery cope with 90 minutes EVF-on? (The...

    No, the FF look is real, just as the MF look is real and m43 looks different than 1". Or do you think they all look exactly the same?
