  • If the dust specs are on the inner surface of the lens and are hardly noticeable, they will not show in the picture at any aperture. Either the specs are very large or they are much closer to the ...
  • Replied in X-T1 vs a6000
    The two systems do not have much in common, apart from both taking photos. Both systems can make you happy and in the right hands... Perhaps the best summary would be: (1) Sony is a computer (a very ...
  • This means you will wait until Fujifilm releases the new rumored HSS flash. Wait a minute - this will most likely be at the same time Nissin can update their i40 with the HSS protocol. Obvioulsy, ...
  • Almost certainly you have a problem with the aperture ring position encoder. Under the ring there is a set of contacts. If all contacts are lost, the camera reads the A position (ergo shutter ...
  • I do not think so. The rumored flash GN is 50 to 52 and has HSS. This flash is a small unit with the GN of 20 to 26. Still, considering Metz is in financial trouble, we might have to wait a little ...
  • Mystery... Somewhere between the tack sharp raw, as you say, and my display of this web site, the sharpness seems to be lost. I hope someone here has an idea of what is going on? BTW: you live in a ...
  • I have this lens too and must say that it does seem sharper. Could be the raw processing or compression for display on the web? How did you convert the images from raw? Whar converter are you using?
  • There is travel and there is travel. If you go to extraordinary places you are unlikely to see again, by all means, take the best glass you have. It makes sense. But if you visit places where it is ...
  • Replied in 16-55/2.8 Hood
    No. Single piece lens hood. Plastic. Easy to attach and remove (too easy?)
  • I know this might not really help you directly but I carry a spare Sony RX10 on critical trips. It is excellent in good light, not much bigger than another mirrorless, does not need a charger ...
  • Very simple reasoning behind my statement. Both systems have some excellent lenses, such as sharp primes and fast zooms. However, there is a myriad of slow mediocre zooms in the m43 world where ...
  • You are in trouble... Both systems are very good (you are buying into the system, not only the camera). Perhaps a short list of differences based on my experience (E-M5 to X-T1): (1) Oly has sensor ...
  • This is terrible. The girl's shirt? I am seing dots everywhere... Seems oversharpened or whatever. I can see why you are worried. What did you use to generate the jpeg? Was it from a raw file or SOC?
  • Same here. Some lenses mount tighter than other. If the zoom ring is stiff, you can feel the slack between the body and the lens. I have read about this from other users. Seems it is common to ...
  • Replied in RX10 Lens Hood
    Had he returned the camera, we would soon be reading a post from someone else about the missing lens hood...
  • Replied in RX10 Lens Hood
    Amazon is well known for re-selling returned goods as "new". But they are not very careful when checking the contents and operation of the returned items, thus all the problems. This is the obvious ...
  • You are right, no watercolor to be seen. This is understandable as the watercolor was only meant to appear in the X-trans raw photos. X-A1 is Bayer... However, I do think the noise level in the sky ...
  • Replied in RX10 Lens Hood
    The lens hood comes in the box with the new camera. Hard to find separately. Try this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4AU1KV9645 I am not sure it is the original item though. ...
  • Fluorescent light is flickering 100 times per second (120 times if you are in the US). The shutter at high speed runs as a slit vertically across the frame. The slit traverses the frame in about ...
  • No direct experience with either flash, but I do know the following: Nissin is upgradeable via USB. This might be important if Fujifilm updates their cameras to high speed flash sync in the future. ...
