Gerry Winterbourne's recent activity

  • If the lens is long enough to accept a deep hood without Vignetting, use the hood. Often, though, the lens is too wide for a deep hood, or the rain is blowing about. If it blows about too much ...
  • Yes, it does, but why should that bother anyone? Subject to a few practical considerations the smaller each pixel the better (see Mark's post and below). In any given generation the makers go as ...
  • To summarise, Lightroom is an excellent photo editor of whole photos with limited ability for modifying small areas; PSE is a good photo editor of whole photos with wider ability for modifying ...
  • NO. He answered precisely you questions you asked . What he didn't answer was the questions in your mind that you failed to ask . After you asked your questions you made some comments about a ...
  • As others have said, it can be fiddly lining up a GND. But to me that's the least of the problems. If the horizon is nice and straight it's OK but if there's a big tree or a peaky mountain or ...
  • What's more questionable is not your ability to offer an argument but to put one together coherently. What you actually asked is "Who has the best camera for the Pro Shooter, the Enthusiast? Who is ...
  • Well, for landscape images you might not struggle so much for light but, yes, it can have an effect there. It's more likely to matter with portraits. First at f/3.5 (focus on the left eye - that ...
  • Ah, so you can take the Mickey but not see when it's being taken out of you. ... which has no relevance to your original mention of 20x16.
  • How are you flipping? Front e-dial is easier than 4-way button. I can't say that I've noticed any delays. You're likely to get more replies to camera-specific questions if you post on the ...
  • No doubt they are all easy when you know them. I've tried several different systems but use the full Photoshop CS because it does what I want quicker and more easily than any other I've tried. It ...

    Each of my primes has a main type of subject or two, although I use all of them for different purposes too. Some days I'm where a particular subject predominates; on that day my favourite lens is ...
  • A lens can focus perfectly at only one distance. Things nearer or further are out of focus; the more they are separated from the focus distance the more they are out of focus. We can usually ...
  • I've never liked zooms. With one exception all my lenses are primes (35, 50, 70, 100, 200 and 300mm) on APS-C plus 8mm on 1/2.3". The exception is 8-16mm, which I use at 8mm about 80% of the time ...
  • Your gear list says your camera is a 38MP Leica S2. The S2 has an aspect ratio of 3:2; you talk of 20x16 printing, which has an aspect ratio of 5:4. You can't print that from 3:2 without cropping. ...
  • I'd put it differently: photography is a combination of science, art and serendipity. Photometry and associated disciplines form a science that forms part of the science part of photography. To ...

    Make sure you look at the pictures at the same size . If you look at 100% the higher MP camera produces a larger image.
  • I wrote this too quickly last night. The chart shown is, indeed, incomplete but it's not the cumulative graph. It is, in fact, the Gaussian bell curve cut off before it starts to decline again. In ...
  • I'd start with the software that came with the camera. If nothing else you know that it starts from the same colour interpretations that the camera makes when producing JPGs, so you've always got ...
  • Let's do a quick calculation. The Canon SX60 has a 65X zoom range. It has a 1/2.3" sensor that has a crop factor of 5.6 compared to FF. To make the corresponding lens for FF it would need to be ...

    Note that this is perfectly true about the quality of the lens. If you buy a lens with a bigger maximum aperture (if there is one of suitable focal length) you can use a lower ISO and get less ...
