  • Re: "The QC in this industry is absolutely crap." Olympus is not the entire industry.
  • And I have to say: it is great to read that web site again. Still the clearest explanation of what "equivalence" means the way this article uses it, and a good explanation of why we bother to use...

  • And I have to say: it is great to read that web site again. Still the clearest explanation of what "equivalence" means the way this article uses it, and a good explanation of why we bother to use...

  • To quote your own web site, it says multiple times "..then the resulting photos will not merely be Equivalent, but be identical."

    I used the word "indistinguishable" in the same sense you used the...

  • I remember when "GreatBustard" posted a very similar (but longer) treatise on what he meant by equivalence in the u4/3 forum. The point was to make images that COULD NOT BE DISTINGUISHED - that...

  • There are differences between different manufacturer's sensors, of course. But if those are minimal yes, in fact, I expect a 16MP APS-C sensor to give close to identical results to a 36MP FF sensor...

  • I just saw an article in EE Times about camera ICs that shows use in stand alone digital cameras is declining and in 2013 was surpassed (in billions of dollars spent) by cameras in cell phones. ...
  • There was a very good article in today's New York Times that, even though it was supposed to be about a retrospective museum exhibit for a photographer including images from rolls of film he did ...
  • I used to use an FZ7 (way before FZ70), and went to micro four thirds. You're right, you see more of a "depth" affect. Usually that's a good thing. There are rare circumstances (macro photography ...
  • Commented on Pen Stands. challenge

    Let's hope so, otherwise it will be interesting to see nearly everyone get disqualified!

  • Why a thread with a very misleading, provably false title is allowed to persist, I don't understand.  If I was a moderator (we should all be thankful I'm not) this thread would get renamed or vanish. ...
  • I once heard a comedian comment on the fact that over 50% of Americans are "overweight".  He said "do you realize what that means?  We've WON!  Come over to our side, we have PIE!!" And I have to ...
  • Replied in Yashika
    Re: 1963 Yashika I was 7 years old and I remember looking at those classic rangefinder cameras, when they were modern marvels, and being unreasonable enamored. *sigh*  Cameras from back then still ...
  • Honeywell Pentax H1A  -> Honeywell Pentax H3V --> Canon A70 --> Panasonic FZ7 --> G10
  • I encourage you to shoot RAW + JPEG fine for a while. If you're like me what you'll notice is that with a calibrated monitor, it is not that lightroom can do better, it's that any tool that gives ...
  • Ending sentence: "For now the GH4 just may be the most versatile ILC you can buy. " And: "Low noise to ISO 6400" If someone doesn't yet want 4K video the price may not be justifiable.  But it sure ...
  • There is another thread on this exact topic within the past month or maybe two months. Summary of what I wrote there: 1) I was happy I had the 25mm f/1.4 for shots inside the ship.  The restaurants ...
  • You know, I'll grant you the better dynamic range even though I'm not sure by how much.  But better color tonality?  How do you figure that? Are you saying that surely one of the colors will clip ...
  • Photoshop Premiere Elements can do it ... I know because I did it.  So let me warn you before you do it:  You may have a problem moving that >4GB result, particularly if it is >4.7GB. Reason: 1) ...
  • Yes, correct. Sorry, beyond my knowledge to come up with a magnification factor. You're on the right track, though; stacked rings give more magnification (and make it harder to focus) for sure. Act ...
