  • Once in a while I go out bringing only a 500mm lens (whether the Reflex Nikkor 500 f/8 or a Russian 3M-5CA) and use it for everything.  This allows for different ways of framing portrait for ...

    When you shoot at close range, depending on lens construction, you may experience a noticeable reduction of the effective focal length, so, the -15-20% hou see at close range in no surprise.  The ...
  • Replied in Bokeh Battle
    Too bad you have a weak stomach...
  • Well, beautiful effects.   Nice pictures.  Like it.
  • FZ-1000 outclasses the SX-50 in all the categories but the zoom length.

    Creamy indeed.  No fringing, no outlining, no chromatic aberrations...  That level of perfection makes me sick, and so does the price!!!:-D
  • And one good thing for birds, the autofocus is insanely fast.  So fast, it's almost imperceptible.  The viewfinder is excellent, albeit electronic and the sensor produces nice clean images all the ...
  • Double bokeh fringing!!!  Love it! MTO 3M-5CA, out of focus blur on a chiseled glass plate. MTO 3M-5CA, hand held, 4.5m distance from the subject.  P Purchased for 75Euros on e-bay e few years ago.
  • Replied in New Pana FZ-1000
    Take a look at it, it's an amazing camera.  Here, in Canada, it is $950.
  • Replied in Wow!
    Hehe, I love the blur of your converted projector lens!
  • f=16500mm, aperture-f/1.6  That's the greatest lens of all time, this side of gravitational lenses.
  • You are right, and quite technically strong.  This is true that aliasing is caused by undersampling.  We live it constantly when sampling phenomena with a less than optimal data aquisition rig.  ...
  • DSLR are not very good at making videos.  Try to find something with a phase detection autofocus on the sensor so it works in live view.  Nikon 1 family does it well.  I'm not to versed in video.  ...
  • All plastics creep, unless they are reinforced with glass or carbon fiber
  • ... and no one talked about it.  CREEP.  A piece of plastic never is perfectly stable dimentionnally in time.  Attaching a heavy lens to a plastic camera body will affect the lens/body alignement ...
  • Replied in Burn it! (nt)
  • For a sensor, the larger, the better...  and here is why: If you frame a given scene with 2 cameras, say a Nikon 1 and a 35mm, using 2 lenses that have the same relative aperture, the 35mm will ...
  • Replied in First of all
    Why do you use 2 ND filters for exposures of 30s and 10 minutes.  I don't see a reason, especially in the 2 pictures posted.  The light leak avenue is likely to be the reason.  There are slits in ...
  • Sounds like a dying CCD.  The P2 is a rather old camera...  and it existed at the beginning of ROHS when everyone had the good idea to use pute tin to weld circuits resulting in short circuits ...
