  • I think your question leads down a wrong path. A 'moment' is a concept of human perception and memory in which time is totally elastic and sometimes irrelelvant. When people use the word 'moment' ...
  • They're always going to be big to incorporate the mechanism plus the optics must cover a wider area than a normal lens to allow for TS. I don't think there's much point in autofocus since they're ...
  • The problem is that many people think that food photography is just taking pictures of any food, no matter how good. They perhaps get carried away by food they enjoyed eating rather than ...
  • Replied in .Disagree
    When photography was invented in the early 19th century it was impossible to photograph 'the moment' since the available technology required extremely long exposures. Capturing 'the moment' was ...
  • Since all TS lenses are totally manual you can use any. Samyang make one with mFT mount too.
  • Indeed it is!
  • Replied in Assumptions
    Assumptions are dangerous things....
  • Just to be fair, although we all speak about 'JPEG' engines we really mean Image Processors. The process of converting the RAW data to RGB image data which you describe does not necessarily result ...
  • It much depends on what "better" means to you. Firstly it's learning technique well enough so the mechanics of taking photographs doesn't get in the way of capturing the image. Since you have ...
  • I agree with knickerhawk above that sticking with the Em5 is the smart option. Actually you might want to reconsider the Nocticron as well since, although it's a great lens, it's price is stellar ...

    I only tried once using the E-M5 and 12-50 kit lens. Not great (my technique, not the gear) but it served as experience...

  • (snip) For some people photography is about getting a certain image of something and often, to do that, a certain type of equipment is necessary. An obvious example is sports photography where long ...
  • The biggest disservice I could do you is to recommend that you buy brand X. I'm a firm believer that if you don't know what to buy then you're not ready to buy. If you're serious about wanting to ...
  • The E-M5 is a great camera but you don't need high DR for studio work. You control the lighting in the studio so you can have as much or as little DR as you like. If you want video, forget the ...
  • I find it saddening that a photographer should want to impose what style of photography should or shouldn't be allowed to others. Of course street photography is voyeuristic - it always has been, ...
  • The figures you show are line widths picture height, which means that for a lens with a given resolving power, the numbers will be greater for the larger sensor. If you really want to compare the ...
  • Replied in Experts
    It's always good to hear from an expert....
  • Blurred backgrounds with the subject in focus tend to be a bit of a visual cliché since the technique is overused. So how about shallow DOF with the subject OOF?
