I don't understand the point. Nikon, you trolls. :P

Lehik: Nice lens. There seems to be quite a lot of easily noticeable moiré in the heron picture. Was it so that the OM-D E-M1 does not have an AA-filter?

I'd blame the heron too. It doesn't have an internet account and can't talk back. :D

Agree though. Bird feathers are tricky.

Oh wow. That tripod mount is awesome.

Qaxl: The architect of Aqua Tower exceeds age limit. I wonder if the host knows a building that matches his criteria!?

That's a good point. In fact, regardless of gender, I doubt there'd be too many architects younger than 40 designing skyscrapers.

Looks really nice.

No entries? Surely someone lives in Chicago.

My city has no buildings that tall. :D

30 seconds base exposure, with the sensor exposed continuously for 30 minutes. So 60 odd "shots".

Petrogel, it's had a fairly strong shadow push in post.

Interesting shot. Would look very much at home in an architecture book. I love it.

What's with the dinky little tripod mount?

On article Primer: Why would I buy a mirrorless camera? (560 comments in total)
In reply to:

SHood: There is one advantage to mirrorless cameras that was not mentioned. Crop sensor mirrorless cameras can have a much larger viewfinder than a crop sensor DSLR. The latest GX8 (2x crop m43) has a viewfinder the size of FF DSLR and one day the EVF may even be larger.

The crop DSLR viewfinders are beginning to look tiny in comparison.

Because when you increase the magnification from the small APS-C mirror, the OVF looks darker. 4/3s DSLRs had a similar issue.

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: She's great at what she does but gee, my brain hurts every time I see her hold the lens backwards. Am I the only one ?

I do that a bit when making heavy use of the zoom or manual focus, especially if I want a smooth rotation around 90-180 degrees or so - typically shooting video.

With light gear like that it's fine. In fact it's nice to do it occasionally for a bit of a break. You can see usually she holds the camera the typical way.
