I have L lenses. Will they be sharper? I love all of them. Will they be less sharp? Cannot spend more on glass. Don't have the money for a medium format or a Leica. Is this the camera of my present dreams?
AbrasiveReducer: "but at least it isn't a step backwards." That's a gold award right there. But maybe these super high mp cameras really are a step backwards? In practical terms, you pay a premium. In exchange, you need to worry more about camera vibration, possible moire and lenses that were fantastic may no longer be, or even require upgrading. And don't forget to spend more computer power and bigger HDs.
An awful lot people buy and use cameras primarily for fun (despite what they say.) And this doesn't sound like that much fun.
A big concern of mine. Will the L lenses be sharper?
stawarz: So will this set a precedent whereby if an animal takes a picture of itself the photographer who's equipment took the image no longer assumes copyright? Now what happens to all the other wildlife pictures whereby they were triggered by the animal tripping a remote release and not by the photographer, have they in fact taken a selfie?
No analagous. The photographer conceived the idea.
Very sad. Bad enough the stories don't spread the news anymore. Now no pictures, either. Soon, no comics. I know why. Went to photography school as a non-trad. Kids didn't read or write. Couldn't tell a story in words or pictures. Never saw one with a paper. They didn't know history or respect it. Just me, me, me. So, why have photojournalists if no stories can be told and if there were, no people would read or understand them.
Enjoy Connect a lot. Think it informs about an area of photography's art and craft handily. Need to know about apps and gadgets for my phone and Ipad.
Did they fix the tethered shootin?
First, you have to find a person who looks like this who wants to be photographed. Strong. High ISO a challenge won by the shooter, as was the use of the 24 which didn't distort. High praise for this image and its maker.
Please help me. If I download the latest version, do I update all the previous updates or just the latest one?
Well written, informative and inspiring. Building the scene. Have to learn this. Need to know so much to produce creative works. Not my look, but that's the point. I need a look. Sadly, every time I see what others do, I want to throw my lens into a fire and take up reading. Maybe not this time. Thank you very much.
I took a workshop with Jay Maisel. Submitted a very strong image that I had worked hard to capture. He put it up on the screen for a tenth of a second and said, "it could have been worse."
If I had the money, I would buy this camera in a second and spend the rest of my life learning how to use it.
