  • you are absolutely right regarding it being a personal preference. though I do not have to review the images twice, I archive the RAWs (PEFs) for future more accurate work and I only review the...
  • I do not see which part of my other post this contradicts. maybe I have missed something, please point it out to me. no, the above paragraph referred to a much more general question why should you...
  • I don't think it is a question of left vs right :) I am probably as left-brained as it gets (I am a physicist). I had exactly the same POV as you and Mike until I slowly came to where I am now. The...
  • My point is you can not get away from the "imagine" part. That is how "seeing" works. it ("seeing") is essentially different to snapping a picture (I have roughly described why). What you "saw" is...
  • I always shoot RAW+JPEG, mostly because storage space is not an issue with current storage prices and the volume of my shooting. I do not sell, nor exhibit my work and I rarely (almost never) post...
  • why should it? who said so? anyway, this is where we differ. to me the photo should convey the idea of the author, incite feelings in the viewers (and the talented photographer knows how to do it)....
  • Mike, sorry to disagree, but photography already is an art. The point that most posters are missing imho that scientifically "an accurate" photo is not an accurate representation of what we see...
  • I can not compare the 2 lenses, as I only have the Tamron. I like it. Picked it over the Sigma for smaller size/weight, lower price and still good reviews. The size and wight of the lens match...
  • Well it is not exactly equal. Theoretically shooting at ISO 1600 and pushing in PP should give you more control over the final result than shooting at the "appropriate" ISO first place. Because you...
  • First statement - I donĀ“t think so. printing big or not is about image quality, while FF is not just about that. Second statement - I do agree of course. Most people do not need FF, as a matter of...
  • Replied in so true!
    So true! :)
  • I am not the best person to ask, since I have no first-hand experience with the 5D. My guess is it will be quite possible to do. It is just 2.5 stops push. Of course in this picture there is not...
  • 1. better only for dynamic range (which is quite important of course), everything else is (marginally) better in 5D at least at ISO above 400. 2. I never look at the overall score. Especially it...
  • No, I am pointing out obvious counterexamples to your statements, as you know in logic it is enough to present 1 counterexample to disprove a statement :) The specific scenarios are not that...
  • They do it to offer a meaningful comparison for practical print sizes. Basically it means that for print sizes up to 12x18 (inches). So unless you print bigger than that, it is a very good...
  • the 5D does not offer this feature.
  • One of the few things the 5D sensor is "better" than K-5 is high ISO performance, which you can observe on DXO...
  • As I have said, IMHO you underestimate how good a 8-year old camera may be. All the technological advances that you correctly point out below, they do matter, sure. However in many cases they...
  • yes. the bigger the sensor the easier it is to get shallow depth of field when you need it (assuming the same composition) http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/digital-camera-sensor-size.htm
  • I was following this discussion with great interest and like to chip in my opinion. 1. old vs. new I think getting an older (used) body may be a very good decision. Even though I went for the new...
