gchamp727: Re: Snov's question about background blurr
Just to give my two cents worth to Snov. We all love that effect. Any of the Sony SLTs or the Nex models are equally capable of getting you that effect (all have APS-C sized sensors). What you want is a narrow or shallow Depth of Field. You get that by one or more of the following:1. larger sensors (the any DSLR, SLT, or Nex is fine. Micro 4/3 a little less so but possible)2. large aperture f2.8 to f1.2 works well3. longer focal lengths (I suggest 50mm or more)4. move closer to your subject5. combinations of 1-4
Thanks. Appreciate the help.
snovs: A little help?
Nex 5N, Nex f3, A37-- what to do??
Been taking pics on my iphone for years. Love the image quality of DSLRs and recognize when pics are shot with them. In the market for a new camera particularly to take on my honeymoon (leaving June 26th, very important) and also for future use with children etc..
Seems like I should eliminate the 5N no? What features would I miss with the f3? Any help would be much appreciated. Will probably post in multiple spots.
Thanks. What about "background blur" feature. This appeals to me, as I fear on the A37 I wouldn't be able to manage that as well. As a novice, I notice quickly when a photo has blurred background and sharp subject... I like that effect. Thanks again all
Thank you very much. So you think image quality could suffer with the f3? Same sensor no?
thanks for the replies. How real do you think the 6/15/12 date I see on Sony's website is? I suppose I could always buy the 5N if it is delayed.
A little help?
