  • Since you have the option why not make your own tests with and without? After all if you don't see SS you don't need a fix...
  • Well, I used the example of sports photography as that's what I was replying to. I could just as easily taken any other genre of photography such as fashion, product, architectural etc. where ...

    You don'r say if you want to do weddings professionally or not. If the answer is yes then what I said stands. I guess though that that's not your intention since you say you can only afford one ...
  • Replied in Don't forget
    If you're talking about doing weddings professionally you'll need two of them at least. Add on fast lenses, flashes (at least two high power) & lots of batteries etc. So before you choose do your ...
  • It's the learning that makes one a photographer rather than a zombie with a camera. And I mean learning in a general sense, not just the technicalities of photography. Another question is do people ...
  • Well, gear matters but not to the extent that the endless discussions on DPR would have us believe. To take your example of sports photography, it seems to me that the vast majority of sports ...
  • The biggest contributer to IQ is the photographer. I.e. you. Act in consequence...
  • It doesn't really matter whether only you or a million people find someones else's photos 'over edited'. It's still a question of taste. Only the person editing can decide if the editing achieves ...
  • Over-editing only occurs when the editor (i.e. you) edits beyond what he/she wants to achieve. So the only person who can answer your question is you yourself. There are otherwise no limits; nor ...
  • My Olympus XZ-1 will. Either on camera or wireless remote (up to 4).
  • I can't really comment on what others might have said on another forum but when I look at SP images I expect to see the photographer expressing him/herself through those images. In other words, ...
  • The idiocy of the masses is so great that it has only ever been eclipsed by the idiocy of the elite...
  • I certainly respect the choice you have made for yourself but I do object to your pontificating on what photography is or isn't based solely on your personal taste. For me it's only the result that ...
  • I don't understand your claim about manual lenses since Canon FD optics are not supported by any Canon DSLR.
  • Replied in Art
    Photography is not art just as painting is not art. Art is the creative expression of the artist. The artist may use whatever tool he or she wants to achieve that and that includes photography.
  • You might also want to look at new lenses like Samyang. They're excellent value and if you get them in, say, Canon or Nikon mount plus adapter you can mount them on any ML camera.
  • Replied in Trust
    If you agree with the results of such reviews then they are completely trustworthy. If, on the other hand, you disagree with the results then they are a load of codswallop. Sad but true...
  • It's not an issue of the response of the photosensor. Companding can be performed analogue before input to the ADC or digitally after the ADC. I will admit that I do not know for sure if it is done ...
  • I believe that the 12 or 14 bits are not linearly spread. It's normal to compand so that the least significant bits have higher values than the highest significant bits.
