  • That is all well and good. But, you titled your thread X-Trans vs Nikon Sensor and what you have done has nothing (very very little) to do with comparing the two sensors. It would be akin to ...
  • In the right hands, with the best lenses each have to offer, it is no contest. They make adapters to put the same lens on both cameras. Then crop the image of the FF sensor down to match the APS-C ...
  • In my opinion, this is the biggest strength to mirrorless. WYSIWYG. I can see in Black and White. I can see in the dark. I can zoom in 10x for critical focus. I can see focus peaking as well. All ...
  • Replied in DOF
    Your shot and that lens are both examples of the finest optics available today. The Zeiss 135 is as good as it gets for 35mm 135 and close to as good as it gets, period. The microscopic black ...

    I still don't know what you are saying here. And then, what it has to do with depth of field. I have read what you wrote carefully. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother responding. Looking at a 100% crop ...
  • Replied in DOF
    What? (bold for logical emphasis, not shouting) Just FYI, I have been studying and teaching photography for 20 years, I understand all of what you are saying. Practically, you are correct. ...

    CoC IS the illusion of focus. The maximum size of a blur circle perceived as in focus. I think you and I are talking about two different things. Once the blur circle on the sensor is smaller than ...
  • My point was not that ANY would use a zoom lens. But that they would all use equipment that suits their style. Nice choices, by the way. I think HCB would love the X-Pro1.
  • Replied in DOF
    It is 100% an illusion. Period. End of story. Your DOF calculator is calculating the effect of the illusion. ALL points (other than those on the infinitely thin focus plane, in other words, none) ...
  • I surfed there many times! Grew up in St. Augustine. More "art" than straight photography. Not that that is a bad thing in anyway. I love the feeling you have produced in your choices for editing. ...
  • Hypothetical situation. Once in a lifetime trip. What digital camera would Ansel Adams take with him today? Where would he go? What would his images look like? How would they be viewed? What ...
  • Replied in Why so noisy?
    It is 100% accurate. The focal plane is exactly that. A plane. With no depth whatsoever. DOF is an illusion.
  • Replied in Why so noisy?
    Sharpening must be output dependent. The optimal settings would not be the same for screen resolution vs small print vs large print. Viewing distance would matter as well.
  • Age old questions: Comfort vs Precision, Weight vs Compromised IQ, Size and weight vs Flexibility Your thread, (I like it), just asks the same questions in light of "Travel Photography" But, the ...
  • I put 4 images here for you: https://www.flickr.com/photos/126320898@N08/ JPG RAF (standard settings from LR) RAF (Sharp 60, radius 1, detail 35) (Clarity +20) TIFF from Irridient
  • I have both. The 55-200 is of the highest IQ. Period. Anyone saying differently either has a bad copy or poor technique. It also works very well for infrared photography. I bought the 18-135 almost ...
  • Thanks. When I got back home, I bought a secondhand 18-135 WR lens. It is spectacular for IR at all apertures and focal lengths. It will stay glued to the XE-1 IR unless I need the wider 14mm.
  • I took only the 14, 27 and 35 primes. The 14 and 35 are perfect with the IR camera. The 27 is less so, but totally usable. Shot in RAW and converted in LR 5.6 ACR 8.6 FULL SET on Flickr.
  • Created discussions Weatherproof???
    What does this actually mean? For example, if I take my camera out in the sea and it gets covered in salt spray, can I put it under the sink tap to rinse it off? How heavy can it be raining before ...
  • Nothing personal. Actually, Rangoon is the former capital of Burma. Both "Yangon" and "Myanmar" are names given by the illegitimate junta government and should be rejected. I was living in Burma ...
