  • All photography requires that the photographer have equipment he or she wants to use, and preferably even enjoys using as opposed to finding the experience stressful. If someone takes an amazing ...
  • Isn't it?  The only people who don't care about gear are artists who disdain their audience.  If they didn't feel so underappreciated maybe they'd have a more evenhanded approach towards their tools.
  • First, the "world" you refer to is a very small, insular community of gear junkies and not the actual world of people who don't care anything about participating in photography other than to view...

  • The artifacts you can see in the image are caused by noise and noise reduction.  What you seem to be referring to is using a focal length so wide that detail is reduced below the lens/sensor's ...
  • Your response is dripping with either irony, contradiction, or both. Again concentrate on taking this piece of that camera to fix this and ignore cost. Talk about lens flexibility being better ...
  • Incorrect. Incorrect. Incorrect. Within reason and not above all else. Incorrect. Correct. Correct. Incorrect. Everyone can take bits and pieces of everything, combine it in their imagination, and ...
  • The last line of that review is very interesting.  Essentially it says for the price one would expect an amazing camera but the Mark II isn't amazing. No, it fills a useful role.  For about 10 ...
  • Posting a link doesn't indicate that much homework was done by the OP.  Lacking any real comments other than quotes from the review one can assume that as long as the post agrees with his/her ...
  • The person who posted the link owns a Sony RX100 III and if you look at his/her history this person regularly posts reviews that confirm the correctness of that decision in unrelated forums.  I ...
  • I read quite a bit of the OP's posting history.  He/she tends to post review links without comment, and also tends to find reviews that love the RX100 series and seems to, therefore, think ...

  • Yes, considering my audience is a group that tends to argue for sport I should have been blunt.
  • The tone of the reply was snarky and context matters. Quoting a common "word" just because someone else used "it" doesn't make it "correct" although it may imply the one doing it is being a ...

    We don't write like that any more because emphasis is now placed on the ever expanding fields of math and science with little thought to art and the English language.  Also, terms like "common ...

    I think this is a symptom of modern loss of individuality to the internet collective or no sense of self, a.k.a. decision making by committee. Also, as pointed out in the video below, using ...
  • Then the extra detail the lens and sensor combination is capable of in some areas of the image would be lost in order to normalize it with the corners rather than taking a hit on the corners in a ...
  • Dale, Just spotted your post that makes essentially the same point I just replied with in another section.  The widest focal lengths are where the effect is most noticeable so it's a small price to ...
  • Youi are misinterpreting the process by assuming what you did is the only way to do it.  Instead, look at it this way:  the center is compress while the corners are stretched and then the edges ...
  • Large lenses do not have nearly as much distortion.  You also need to realize that the RX100 Mark II at 28mm (widest equivalent focal length) is not really at 28mm, it's at 10.4mm.  That's ...
  • I think you're applying an all-or-nothing approach here that oversimplifies the design concept behind the G1 X series lenses.  I think Canon desperately tried to correct distortion optically.  ...
