  • Replied in Aha!
    That clears it up for me. I've only had the opportunity of looking through an EVF a couple of times and while admittedly I may have just looked at the wrong ones, they were never a match for the ...
  • Replied in ???
    That one was lost on me, I have to admit. Did Joe say he was using such a small screen?
  • Replied in Exactly right!
    But I don't think Joe is interested in hearing views that oppose his big "Truth".
  • You seem to have missed the point in time when merely switching the flash (onboard or externam hotshoe mounted) automatically lowers the shutterspeed to sync. You also seem to have missed the ...
  • Replied in Pulleaze!
    Why write stuff which is so obvious it applies to just about everything? "IQ on even the cheapest full-frame DSLR is "BETTER" than previously available. As is the pentaprism !!!" "IQ on even the ...
  • BEGINNERS need to be told that IQ is a very important part of a good/great image, though not always THE most important part.
  • I honestly think he believes what he says...
  • Replied in I'm not the one
    who is going on about an image which you state "put me on the macro map world wide". The image did not impress me and you seem to continue to bring it up as your one greatest single example. I ...

  • and your "world-wide macro fame", as well as your consistent use of your instead of you're as well as other little idiosyncrasies in your replies, I can only conclude you suffer from a form of ...
  • Yes you can do everything you say you can with an FZ1000 (great camera by the way) but I have no use for shooting at 600mm, never have and I sincerely doubt many people do. My current setup's ...
  • You titled this thread "Should ANYONE get a DSLR or MirrorLess ???" You are so full of it!
  • Replied in Sorry but no
    You stated that before in this thread and it failed to impress me the first time around. Repeating it doesn't make it any better. Well, good for you then! Having been a car mechanic in the sixties ...
  • So you are a collector, but are you also a photographer? Than get a newer equipment DSLR or is that answer too simple? Did you ever consider the above might have happened to you lately?
  • Rest of his photostream shows similar snapshots, haven't identified that great macro there. Possibly he saves those to a different, professional, site?
  • Replied in My thoughts?
    First thing that went through my mind was: "He really is clueless".
  • Never ever understood why anyone would buy a DSLR and than marry it to a piece of inferior glass just so as not to use the one feature that makes interchangeable lens cameras stand out...the ...
  • decided to go on a rant about it to justify its cost to the missus? What's with the fanatical evangelism anyway? Go shoot some images, I'm not impressed. There's a lot of great cameras out there ...
  • Here is where you are having issues - it just isn't that simple as saying "I purchased a hammer and a screwdriver so now I am cool with furniture-making". See above, learn how to use your camera ...
