  • Replied in Oly 25mm f1.8
    Another alternative if you have a static subject is to do a bokeh pano (aka Brenizer pano) using a longer lens to isolate but capturing enough shots to mimic the composition. It's a lot more work ...
  • That's like saying, if you cared about saving weight, why stop at m4/3, why not move all the way down to smartphone cameras. The statement was that it is much easier to separate with FF than m43, ...
  • I only make use of the word "dishonesty" because there are those that claim that a particular spec does not impact the final result when compared to another system, but then turn around and claim ...
  • That doesn't make it something we cannot discuss using models and approximations. In fact, you used it yourself in this very post below... That you were able to surmise an f/5.6 image would be ...
  • There was a question in the OP asking why there appears to be such animosity among posters when discussions around the virtues of various systems takes place, some times it gets deeply personal ...
  • Replied in Take a bit
    Thanks for that, I tried searching for the test methodology used but could not find much beyond some summary of why they test hue (http://www.imaging-resource.com/TIPS/TESTS/TESTS.HTM). I'm not ...
  • This kind of thinking is what causes the various discussions to get out of hand. You say f/4 is f/4 is f/4 (I write it this way to remind you that it is a RATIO) and yet in the same breath talk of ...
  • Replied in Take a bit
    Thanks for the above charts, may I ask where I can find such graphs? I'm curious as to the methods used to derive the results and which raw conversion was used to do the measurements.
  • Replied in It gets worse.
    Not disagreeing with the content of your post, but I believe the point being made isn't about whether professional wedding photography is important to today's youths or not. Taking the wall of ...
  • Everyone's perspective will differ based on what they have experienced and also their culture. Personally, I find it odd that parents are paying for their children's weddings. Beyond the whole ...
  • Replied in Why stop ?
    By saying that giving up pixel peeping is a step to becoming a photographer, you are insinuating that those who do pixel peep have not yet become "photographers". That is "bashing" no matter how ...
  • This question has been answered a dozen times and every time you have ignored the answer given. Your question is like saying: Why does 25mm f/2 with 12.5mm opening pass through more light than 25mm ...
  • Why not compare across price brackets? Lets play your game (but change to 600mm @ f/5.6 as it makes the maths easier) 600mm @ f/5.6 is the same regardless of what format you are talking about, ...
  • I think what FingerPainter is pointing to, is this urban myth that m43 cheerleaders have perpetuated regarding lens sharpness. Your real world experience doesn't hold water when discussing ...
  • A comparison to the Olympus 35-100 f/2 weighing 1650g illustrates what it can cost, in terms of size and weight, to get a single stop more.
  • These photos look like they are straight out of a travel brochure! Very well done! Now you have me contemplating an underwater housing and strobe for my E-M1+12-40 kit :) I've a honeymoon to plan ...
  • Agreed. This is not unlike the office productivity software landscape we see today. Google docs and office online (free variant) are good enough for a large majority of home users. Users who may ...
  • That's a whole lot of replies that didn't even respond to what was written. I don't feel inclined to respond to each of your responses, but did you miss the word "imagine" in the beginning of my ...
  • Actually, you miss my point entirely. NZMacro was suggesting that he buys his camera, he buys his lenses and so by extension, he also buys his software... as if software and cameras were the same ...
  • You think the younger generation will instead pony up the $$$ to buy the product outright instead? The generation that grew up on instant gratification? Where buying a phone outright is not as ...
