  • Replied in No worries
    Even f/8 is stopped down too far. F/5.6 will have barely noticeable softening from diffraction. F/8 has obvious softening from diffraction. F/11 and f/16 are terribly soft from diffraction and are ...
  • Favourite Wrist Strap: Gordy's Wrist Strap Most Used Wrist Strap: Peak Design Cuff (cannot seem to insert link, sorry; Google it) Why don't I use my favourite wrist strap? Because with the Peak ...
  • Started with the RX100. Loved it. I mean really loved it. Bought the RX10 as soon as it came out for the wider wide-angle, longer telephoto, f/2.8 zoom, EVF, flip up viewfinder, exp. comp dial, ...
  • Don't have a Samsung camera, so just speaking in generic terms here but... (1) If you're shooting jpeg, do you have EXACTLY the same settings enabled? Perhaps lens corrections is turned on with the ...
  • This is why you use a histogram when reviewing your images if you care to know whether the highlights or shadows got clipped. While some camera screens are better than others, none are going to ...
  • Yes, everything you can display on the rear screen of the camera such as the level and histogram can also be displayed in the EVF. That is the key advantage of an EVF to me. Have you had a camera ...
  • As you can see, DXOMark has the RX10 about 1/2 EV more dynamic range than a full-frame Canon, but 2 EVs less than a full-frame Nikon. Now Canon's are not known for their excellent dynamic range, ...
  • It's quite good, I like it very much. Anything you can display on the rear screen, you can display in the EVF with the exception of the screen that only shows camera settings on a black background, ...
  • Built in ND filter will not help one bit in this instance. It will just lead to 3-stops slower shutter speed, which indoors will probably ruin the photo further.
  • I agree that the zebras are another good way to handle the situation and the zebras 100%+ or the histogram are what I always use to judge my RAW exposures. An alternative technique with the zebras ...
  • 1 & 2) I suspected you were referring to locations where you cannot control the choice of tablecloth, but if you can, consider this. 4) If you're bouncing from a ceiling and not throwing much light ...
  • I stand corrected, there is a NX1 kit with the PZ, I forgot. As for the pricing of the kit with the S lens, that kit includes a grip, spare battery and a battery charger. If none of those items ...
  • Some things to try: (1) use a darker tablecloth (2) if it's a plasticky tablecloth with reflections, either get a matte cloth tablecloth that's not reflective or use a polarizer ...
  • FYI, the 16-50 lenses that come bundled with the NX1 and NX500 are quite different: The one with the NX1 is a $1,300 pro-quality f/2.0-2.8 zoom with weather-sealing. The one with the NX500 is a ...
  • (1) Put the camera in RAW mode (to eliminate any JPEG settings that may be causing the problem - too many variables here).
  • I've PM'd you a link to a variety of RX1 photos. They are the DNG files that I have after importing the RAW files into Lightroom. There's some high dynamic range, a variety of apertures and a ...
  • I'm a current Pentax user strongly considering the NX1. One thing holding me back is the lack of a reasonably fast, compact portrait lens like the DA70. I love that lens. The Samsung 60 macro and ...
  • There are two main things about the MkIII that allow it to deliver better pictures: (1) improved image stabilization, (2) faster lens at normal and short tele focal lengths.
  • I've seen this comment a few times and it really makes absolutely no sense. I'm no pro yet my cameras are always exposed to bad elements. Mother nature is often at her most beautiful when bad ...
  • This is where flashing highlights and a histogram are so helpful. I've come to rely on those far more than what I see on the screen when setting exposure.
