  • When the good crop isn't apparent to me, that's a failure in visualization. I never want a square format camera; then I would be losing pixels every time.
  • Well, it does happen but I consider it the result of a failure in visualization when I took the shot; I hate to lose all those pixels.
  • You certainly shouldn't pixel peep if you shoot at f/22. That will give you considerable diffraction blur.
  • You initiated a thread about a week ago where you were looking for the best image quality in a sub-$1000 camera. Eventually it came out that you were taking pictures of prepared food in ...
  • The Lumix in the O.P.'s series of camera photos isn't a DSLR, it's a mirrorless. So there is no option to have the mirror down. Most (all?) mirrorless cameras keep the shutter open, so the ...
  • If you don't care about them, why did you link to them? In normal operation (like when you're changing a lens), the mirror is down and the shutter is closed. So you can see the mirror.
  • It's a disease of DPR's software; it's incapable of rationalizing fractions.
  • But you shouldn't be sticking your fingers in there anyway....
  • If it's a DSLR, the mirror would typically be down and the shutter is closed. Are you sure you're seeing the sensor or are you looking at a reflection of the focusing screen? With mirrorless ...
  • It's hard to tell what Sony is serious about. This may well be the most significant issue for professionals; the camera may work very well but is Sony going to support it enough?
  • There may be some merit in doing that with Sigma files; perhaps Lightroom does a lousy conversion job. And a Foveon sensor doesn't do Bayer interpolation, so you don't lose data when you create a ...
  • Yes yes yes. If you don't know what you're doing keep your hands out of the mirror box; odds are it'll be worse after you're done with it. When I watched that video chills ran up and down my spine.
  • And why would I want to do that? It just locks in the RAW conversion and limits my ability to edit the file; a TIFF loses the individual brightness data from each pixel besides making a bigger file.
  • Anytime you have to run the ISO up to 3200 on a D300 you're in big trouble; it just doesn't handle that gracefully. The OP's probably right in limiting his ISO to 800, which can look pretty good.
  • Well, yes; my life is that empty. But I don't care about it either. Does this mean my life is even emptier than it could have been?
  • There aren't many. Use DPR's camera feature search. As far as I can see, there's the Canon G16 and A1400; everything else is larger. And those are terrible viewfinders that only show about half of ...
  • The science is the relationship of EV to illuminance. Hotdog is setting the camera to EV 9 at ISO 100. This corresponds to an illuminance of 64 cd/m^2: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exposure_value I ...
  • Mine doesn't do anything like squeal. There's a faint click when the VR goes on or off and some soft sounds when the lens is focusing but it's relatively quiet.
  • The simplest advice: don't get any filters. There aren't many filters that are useful on digital cameras. You don't need a UV filter because the sensor already has one. You don't need color filters ...
  • The best way is with a hardware calibration tool such as an X-Rite i1 but those cost money. You can try this site: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/monitor-calibration.htm to get close ...
