  • Hi Lin, Thank you for your reply and effort to try to make it clear. But I don't think you make things any better, sorry to say that. I am talking about two resolution limitations; one is sensor ...
  • Thanks Richard. This is very helpful test. I would say that your test result is consistent with my estimation. You mentioned that 4MP onward there is no improvement. I would push it a bit harder ;) ...
  • I did not say P900 cannot do good image.  A 3MP camera can do very good image as well. I did rechecked McBrigs images.  Those are very sharp images.  But they are not of resolution of 16MP,  more ...
  • Frankly, at 2MP, it should be quite nice if viewed on most screens.
  • Self correction: To get visible/distinguishable resolution of two dots or lines, one may not need a full Airy diameter separation, half might do.   This will result about 2MP resolution limit for ...
  • Hi Everyone, I have seen lots of good reviews about the P900.  I have the attempt to get one.   However I have doubts about how good the resolution on such small sensor.   So I did a simple ...
  • Replied in My story
    I think I was wrong then. She clearly is at least sometime. :) Good for you.  My wife was not interested at all before this trip.  Now she at least shows some interests.  Good turning point I guess.
  • Replied in My story
    Good suggestions.  Thanks.
  • Created discussions My story
    Guess what camera used? My family visited Antelope Canyon this spring. Naturally I booked the photographer's tour for myself, and my wife and kid booked regular tour. I had bigger cameras and ...
  • Well, for skin tone there is no objective view. Anyway I think it's more fun than those debates of small vs big sensor.   I hope this one does not fall into that path.
  • Man, I think the #4 is the worst of all.  It's greenish, worst for skin.  Well, just my personal taste.  I am an Asia I always look at the Asia girl's first.  And I prefer skin tone a little ...
  • If you need to reduce the light hitting the sensor, the smaller sensor (APS-C vs FF) has no disadvantage.   You need to worry more about your ND's quality more than sensor size. I am ...
  • It would be even better on a D7100 or D7200. But what the cost of a good Nikon 400mm? If I make a living by doing this, I'd like have a 600mm f/4G or 800mm f/5.6.
  • If you use a FF for landscape, you are most likely shooting at f11 or f8, which is equivalent to f8 and f5.6 on a APS-C.  At this setting even you pixel peep them there is no IQ difference, ...
  • Yes, I analysed this topic to death. That's where the 1% come from. Actually I lied about the "FF does not give me enough reach". If you carry a Nikon 800mm f5.6 lens, bingo! you have the reach and ...
  • Although it's a beaten to the death topic, I'd like to add my thought on it. I do agree with Thom. I went through all my photos (mostly taken with APS-C camera, some with P&S) posted on Flickr ...
  • Replied in Sigma 150-500
    I have one.  Bought more than 2 years ago. It's OK considering the price. Check images here https://www.flickr.com/photos/35513150@N00/sets/72157629659569728 Value wise, I think it worth it.  At ...
  • Hi All, Try to find a faster M4/3 zoom lens.  So far I find the fixed lens on LX100 is fastest. You might know what I am at.  If I can find some interchangeable lens that is as bright as the one on ...
  • Methanol (CH3OH) + Good Lens Papers + a sensor clean stick. Those pre-wet sensor clean stick are bad. Clean it with warm tap water and dry it then wrap it with lens paper.  I did cleans for Nikons ...
