On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (525 comments in total)
In reply to:

AshMills: Id just like a Nikon native mount camera with A7S sensor, a tilt and swivel screen, onboard 4K, silent mode, fast AF. With or without an EVF. Please.

Thanks Sam, I am a full time photographer, I know how a camera works, but many thanks for the insight. Please inform me exactly how removing the mirror and mechanical shutter from D810 and pressing Live View is not a mirrorless camera. I dont care if its "too big" I happen to like big cameras.

Might I also point out that there are plenty of mirrorless nikon mount scientific cameras etc.

There is also a big difference between sh*tting on your own doorstep and realising that everyone else are putting in better doors elsewhere.

And (sorry) say they welded that nikon mount to the A7S, glued a nikon badge on top would I still not be allowed not be allowed a "Nikon mount on a Nikon Mirrorless" ?

I would like proof from the tax man otherwise this never happened.

I would like 4K personally because it could be done without line skipping, allows for useful reframing/steadying control later, and can easily be downscaled.

I never said silent DSLR, I would like a silent FF, Gmount, nikon with EVF.

ozturert: Again, I see a lot of messages like "this is a terrible camera because I don't need it".

"My RX100 III is much smaller than this!"
"My Nikon is lighter and has more megapixels!"
"My camera takes better videos!"
"My camera is..."

Yes your camera is better.

Mine are better, for me.

Wye Photography: Will the real buyer please step forward...

or are you...

a) a Phantom or

b) too embarrassed to confess to spending that amount of (imaginary) money on a print.

I bought it, because I need to learn how to achieve this level of genius. (Marketing genius.)

Deardorff: Taken with a Canon 1DsMkII camera.

Naturally nothing else from any other brand is worth anywhere near what Canon photos are...

I need to know which shoes he was wearing. I am genuinely surprised he used such approachable "low end" gear.

Presumably "Fine Art Photographer" means the same as "Fine Art paper" and "Fine wine"- More expensive, comes in a smart box, only sold through smart outlets, plenty of well-written spiel to sell its virtues and appears basically identical to a product 1/100 the cost, unless you move in the "right" circles.

PS My prints are available from my website, which is myname dot com.

On WaterWeight rethinks the sandbag approach to stability article (77 comments in total)

May only weigh 139g but you do have to carry the water or sand to put in it, unless you mostly work on beaches/sandunes and by rivers.

Another option is a ratcheted spike into the ground. Not reccommended indoors.

In reply to:

topstuff: Impressive AF capabilities. That is the unique benefit of this camera. But I think the appeal ends there.

I am surprised at how easily pleased the Canon faithful appear to be however.

The sensor performance of this camera is, at best, average. It is as if the 7D2 has been ready to launch for 3 years or so but Canon have only now gotten round to it.

Given the might of Canon, people should expect more. As long as they don't, then Canon will happily sell people want they want even if it is out of date.

In the short term it must be great for Canon. They get to sell lots of boxes with only incremental improvement and investment in updating the tech. And their faithful users don't seem to mind.

Dr_Jon, the 6D is a different camera.

zodiacfml: Seems very low power to me.... limited use.

If I was setting up a flash for bullet shots I might prefer being farther away. ;-)

Paul Guba: Surprising no one is talking about the use of LED in flash unit. I find that much more interesting then the duration.

Lots of devices use LEDs for flash.

In reply to:

photogeek: Does anyone actually use the "DOF preview button", especially on APS-C bodies with tiny viewfinders? Why is it even worth a mention? You can't tell the effect in the viewfinder anyway, not to the extent that you'd be able to tell how sharp the background would be.

That super precision screen, why doesn't it ship with that if its so awesome?

Oh, google tells me only works well with fast lenses.

In reply to:

Neuroanatomist: as a pro i might stick to canon for a bit longer.
but for average joe customers canon has nothing exciting to offer anymore.

samsung and sony cameras offer something new and great features only a mirrorless can offer.

nikon and canon are dinosaurs.

Im a pro, and I am jealous of the innovation Sony, Panasonic and Samsung are putting into cameras. Canon and Nikon have so many vested interests they seem to be holding back what they could do. I mean for instance - where was the D400 they could have made, why is the 7D so dull (excellent, but dull) where is the A7S equivalent, where is the Full Frame Mirrorless, silent camera, 4K video etc etc etc.

Wubslin, do you still have the "Saynotophotography" website?

Just wondering.

Yeah these short-term crazes like Live View, Auto focus, and Digital will never catch on.
