    ... or loose big (valueable) time cloning out all the spots in their images which doesn't sound a very professional apporach to me. Furthermore a pro would most likely select pro tools. Not that ...
  • Hi, with a big flash unit (I'm using Metz) the handling is still ok but nothing to write home about. Especially for portrait orientation shots and only from the handling POV my take is that it's ...
  • ...and try to select at least for start the right species, that is middle to large sized birds and out of them the one's which show the smallest amount of erractic changes in their flight track. ...
  • Elliott, from my experience they sometimes state "anything" as for justifying a rejection. They have so many photos to select from. And the reviewers (my guess here) spend only at best some seconds ...
  • Sorry again, I don't get it why you insist in comparisons: a) with other equipment; b) with a different reality concerning stock photography some years back. Stock agencies got much more picky in ...
  • :-) Quite nice for a quick-and-dirty. Perhaps this gets already close what the OP is after. For my part I'm only noticing that leopards usually don't have white fur. May be an albino though
  • Sorry to say so but this is no evidence at all. Only anecdotal "feelings". I would believe if you'd show side by side shots with the Nikon and Sony here taken under the same cicumstances of the ...
  • ...and even then not necessarily. Because both planes parallel means, according to geometry basics that the perpendicular distance (centre - centre = focussing distance) differs by a certain ...
  • Hi, I may be wrong but other than a b/w conversion I see only colouring as an option. It's essentially a monochrome image (like b/w) with very little colour information in the green and blue ...

    Revisiting the example shots I noticed the curious thing ihat also the used exposure time with 1/250s at full 200mm is at least in the limit range for getting maximum sharpness detail on a such ...
  • Thanks for the links. The question however was not how to achieve corrections - which isn't rocket science in RAW processing -  but what is the "right" WB or what WB looks best.
  • Well, as said, in many cases it's more about correct exposure than the selected ISO. Worst case situation for noise is an underexposed shot with exposure correction pushed in PP. And in comparison ...
  • Hi, it depends in part of your particular sensitivy in relation to noise. :-)  But seriously, what's still pretty fine for one is horrifying for another. In addition it depends on the output / ...
  • Thanks for the effort. It's just think that I probably wouldn't even start working on micro contrast on a web sized image, posted with the unique purpose to discuss the overall look of different ...
  • :-) Neither do I. But I'm on the side of the track photographing the runners - which with several hundrets of them (or more) passing is quite a challenge for equipment and photographer.

    Hi, the more detail there is depicted the more you'll notice the degradation due to diffraction, especially if you do a side-by-side comparison with a shot taken with the aperture less stopped ...
  • Well, my will return to use as soon as the running season starts again next month. AF performance of RX10 isn't still there. I was already tempted to give it a try but up to now I didn't feel ...
  • Similar to that. Top zipper is different and I don't see the rain cover mentioned. It may be a newer model. My was about 30 Euros in store.
  • Yes, I know and I have them. It's just in many situations I'm stopping down to f/4 or more anyways and I really wouldn't mind lower weight modern lenses - at least as an option. The RX10 is almost ...
  • Make is Hama bought in Germany. Model I have no idea. What I like is the access from top by zipper, front pouch for extra battery and cards, small back side pouch where I stored the lens cap and a ...
