  • The RX1 accessory EVF is lightyears better than the one on the RX100 MkIII. Can't speak to the Q. I find them to be very similar. A wee bit more customization than the MkI, similar but not exactly ...
  • I find it odd that you find it tougher with an EVF vs the d750 and it's OVF. I find shooting with an OVF to be somewhat blind to how the exposure is going to turn out until AFTER the shot is taken ...
  • It doesn't matter. I can press and hold a few seconds and it doesn't work and when it's "warmed-up" I can pretty much jab it down as fast as possible and get great OIS functioning. The OIS doesn't ...
  • Sorry about that. I assumed you were talking about the power zoom because the latest update I'm aware of for the f/2-2.8S lens is 1.02 on the NX1. You mentioned updating it to 1.25 which appears ...
  • You're talking about the power zoom 16-50 if I'm not mistaken. My issues are with the f/2.8 S lens. Interesting that you have similar issues even though both the lens and body are different. I ...
  • You can do it all with the 16-50. Beyond that, do you prefer wider than 16mm (which is already plenty wide for even landscapes) or telephoto? That would tell you which zoom to pack as your second ...
  • I saw your post. That's what gave me the idea to keep trying when initially the photos were blurred. Eventually they came clear. Thanks for giving me that idea. I talked to the store where I got my ...
  • BRILLIANT! Thanks for this thorough test and detailed description of your results. That is very useful information for me.
  • Sure, but 2 whole minutes before they don't actually RUIN (as in worse than handholding with OIS turned off) the photo. That's nuts!!!
  • See what I find interesting is that I do get perfectly sharp photos in Mode 1; after 2 minutes. Mode 2 is better, but still not sharp at the start. It too improves as time goes on, although ...
  • Thanks for your testing. 10 seconds would work for me. I deliberately took a stopwatch and took a photo every 10 seconds of some text, then of my phone (stopwatch) for 3 minutes at a variety of ...
  • Oh, forgot to mention. I did upgrade the body to FW 1.31 and the lens to 1.02 befor testing.
  • My original thread can be seen here . My replacement kit arrived; however the prior thread has been hopelessly derailed, so I thought I'd post an update in a new thread. I've been playing around ...
  • Thanks for checking up Ralph. I got an email from the camera store today stating that they've tested my first camera/lens combo and found them to be defective. They're shipping me a new unit ...
  • Then this is not a comparison of the camera's true capabilities. You're comparing a FF 12MP sensor to an APS-C 28MP sensor? Might as well compare a 2008 Ford F-150 to a 2015 Mazda Miata. They'll ...
  • Your little rant here is way off topic (Does it have anything to do with OIS? Didn't think so) so what is it doing here. Nevertheless I'm going to go against my better judgement and respond anyway. (1) ...
  • As I read this, these are all lenses you already own so I'll refrain from suggesting any to buy and pick from the kit you've got. In addition to the lenses you've already determined you're taking, ...
  • A bit of an aside to the OP's question, but hopefully helpful with the issue above. I'm not sure of your method of organizing photos, but pretty much every method should allow you to do the following.
  • My camera + lens is going back today as that is the deadline that the store has in order to deal with Samsung on this issue with a full replacement rather than me having to deal with warranty ...

    I haven't tried focus stacking. If I did, I'd start with Photoshop as I already own it. I've heard great things about Helicon Focus but have never tried it out.
