  • Am an old landscape photographer with a large body of work. Someone that has used 35mm SLR, MF, LF 4x5, and several digital cameras through last decade though until buying the A6000 continued to ...
  • "...how much do we need" "we" ? Its a mistake to suggest photographers have a common need regarding resolution or output detail for obvious reasons as several responders note.   I continue to ...
  • Picked up a Pentax 645Z a few days ago that an acquaintance owned. Quite a heavy beast. Camera body alone is about 4 1/2 pounds and lenses 2+ pounds more so quite a bit more than my 4x5 field view ...
  • My digital photo database goes back a dozen years through 7 different cameras. Also have older collection of 35mm, 6x7, and 4x5 film images all indexed into Excel spread sheets. Am an old hi tech ...
  • Well I can see you are now reflecting on what I related and coming up with some situations where indeed manipulation might not be an issue.  Again this is not a black and white one question but ...
  • It is the actual true inferred argument presented as a hot button controversial troll because as I noted there is not anything intrinsically unethical about manipulating images or any art for that ...
  • Again wrong argument. Issue is with publicly misrepresenting imagery. Yes, no 2 or 3 dimensional image copy of a subject is ever going to be a perfectly 100% representation much less the processes ...
  • Replied in Nope . . .
    Discussions on image manipulation have considerably waned since the early days of digital cameras. And enough time has passed now that a whole new generation of young photographers are asking some ...
  • I prefer to use spot auto focus if possible because it is quick and simple.  But manual focus can be very useful in closeup work focus stack blending when the target area is too small for the spot ...
  • The mistake is in your thread heading. Nowhere in the OP Muench links does he relate what he was doing is "serious landscape" with your unstated intent that the results were going to be printed ...
  • Sure some here are going to disagree but talk to me a few years from now. Simply put, downsizing large images more than about 3x to 4x kills the aesthetic of many highly detailed sharp images. Of ...
  • You seem to referring to those that place value on the historical simple process of photography say using a fully mechanical camera with film (like a film view camera) and have an agenda that ...
  • https://www.onlandscape.co.uk/2014/12/36-megapixels-vs-6x7-velvia/#/ Above links Tim Parkin of on landscape's recent tests with multi film / digital system tests will probably surprise many. Useful ...
  • Most on this board would puke if they saw a picture of the gear I've carried for years.  Like a 4x5 view camera system plus all the usual camping gear, backpacking into remote wilderness areas for ...
  • Am an old landscape photographer with a huge body of LF work. I grew up with a set of fixed focus lenses continualy switching lenses onto a 35mm SLR body shooting KR64. I'd used zooms earlier but ...
  • Agreed Peter this is not only a potential feature not on existing cameras but rather not a feature that has been apparently been considered by camera engineeers. Well maybe considered but without ...
  • On more advanced DSLRS there has been considerable camera innovation on being able to track moving objects with autofocus automatically refocusing and taking incremental shots. Say rapidly taking ...
  • I'm an old photographer that began shooting Kodachrome film on 35MM SLRs before most members here were born. My comment is more narrowly about outdoor nature and landscape photography which is ...
  • For years wondered why horizontal electronic levels had not been designed into higher feature digital cameras. Then recently that is happening as with the Canon 7D. However that level is only ...
  • ... Ok I get it now. You apprently don't have much understanding of what skilled users of Photoshop can do. The more saturated greens in the image is a rather simple operation. The following is an ...
