mapgraphs' recent activity

  • I've watched the used market closely for a couple of years now, picking up an e-pl5 in the process, just to try the 16mp sensor. In the process, I discovered that Olympus had instituted higher ISO ...
  • Well put. It would seem that lost on this digital generation is Depth of Field preview. It used to be so easy, press the button, release the button . . .
  • It already exists. The only problem is people who don't understand and don't want to make the effort and take the time to learn the jargon. Large format, medium format, small format and miniature ...
  • Replied in Eight Stops
    Looks like I missed one. There are eight stop signs. Two on the northeast fork, one on the northwest fork, one each, east and west on the crossroad, one on the southwest fork and two on the ...
  • Replied in Seven Stops
    A motley collection from local ramblings. A new companion for the 7-14 (with some prodding from RZ). I figure, while I can still carry them, might as well enjoy them. Pacing work and chasing ...
  • Replied in Meadow
    Revisited. Snow flurries, 2015 2016 Voigtländer 35 Ultron (LTM), OM 24.
  • Replied in Rim Light
    Wonderful treatment. Have to admit, I'm a sucker for black blacks. Don't really understand the whole lifting the shadows thing. It's probably due to years of printing and the introduction to Azo ...
  • I think what some might be looking for is a smooth continuous tone rendering of what is not in focus. A good transition from in focus to out of focus and a decent blend from highlight into the ...
  • Replied in To determine
    Again, the point of focus in both is not the same. Oddly, where the a7RII is in focus, it is sharper than the D800. I'd say on the a7RII the lens is almost wide open.  I'd find it hard to believe ...
  • Replied in To determine
    The point of focus is not the same. Look at the tree, right of center. With the D800 the building is in focus. With the A7RII, the tree is in focus.
  • "Enough DoF" is somewhat subjective, it really depends on the intent (and lens used). Going to f/16 - f/32 is moving into tripod territory because of slower shutter speeds. Camera movement is more ...
  • Replied in Main Streets
    Route 190, different days. Drab overcast to drizzle. WB 7500 to 6000k. Buckley Highway to East main to Main. Union center to Stafford Springs. There's a better view with Google Street View, the ...
  • Try swapping the camera batteries.
  • "Using SilkyPix in our studio scene would unfairly make the K-1 look far better than it is"

    Hyperbole aside, what this really implies is that ACR is not that good... If the bundled software blows...

  • Nothing really to contribute but this. Something about conceptual art, Hamilton Bay and the Lost Coast (to name a few) suggested it. I saw the Hamilton Bay pano and thought I had seen it before, ...
  • I have to say after perusing the clam bait here (excellent effort btw), I have a better appreciation for the rusted abandoned farm implements scattered across the countryside here. All had ...
  • Replied in Trail Mix
    Really like the hint of the trail in the distance. A very effective perspective. The eye is drawn in. If anything, now I'm curious about where the trail on the left comes from. Vistas with details ...
  • Double Blue (Blue Barlow?) Columbine and native Iris. Some native red Columbine, out of focus, in the background. A protected nook where everything is early and blooms all at once.
  • Well, I never had reason to look further because the adapters simply worked. I have both Tamron adapters in different flavors and straight Adaptall to 4/3 - m4/3 adapters. It appears that both ...
