  • Nordstjernen, out of those three which one is likely to lock focus more often in low light situations?
  • I'd opt for the D750 primarily for the built in wifi. If the D610 had it I get that in a heart beat. I don't like having to deal with dongles or accessories. Just more to lose.
  • Posted such amazing photos. The color and dynamic range is really good on the D750. Now I want this camera. Shame on you :)
  • Replied in 135L
    I had the 135L and it was a incredible lens. The bokeh and sharpness was amazing and beautiful. Though I rarely ever used it in doors.; it was just too tight for that. For bigger events it can be ...
  • I currently have the Sony Nex-5 from 2010 and I'm wondering if anyone has made the switch from that camera to the Fuji X-T1. I'm more interested in how the AF system is compared to the NEX-5 with ...
  • I own a Canon 5D and Sony Nex 5 and it drives me crazy when I hear people say Full Frame. If 35mm is a Full frame what is Medium Format or large format? It should be referred as APS-C, 35mm, Micro 4/3
  • I wonder why Fuji would consider the X-PRO as their flag ship as the X-T1 in my opinion fits the bill more in terms of design. I apologize for my ignorance but I was the impression the ranger ...
  • Replied in X-PRO2 vs X-T2
    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking it was above the X-E series in terms of the hybrid viewfinder but a step below the X-T series in that sense. I like the feel and look of the X-T series but ...
  • Created discussions X-PRO2 vs X-T2
    In terms of market position how will these camera be placed? Is the X-PRO 2 suppose to be placed above the X-T series or is it the other way around? I understand the difference between the X-E1/2 ...
  • Eventually we will get there. I don't foresee the APS-C sensors from Sony getting to the A7S level of low light performance for another two or three years. Its going to happen and go even beyond ...
  • I'd get an SSD for your 2011 iMac and hold off for another year. I'm always skeptical of first release retina products due to how taxing the retina display can be on the system. However my main ...
  • This is really sad to here. I started coming to DPreview.com back in 2003 and would read through the Sony talk forums. It is here where I met Yuri. I remember talking to him about the Sony F717 ...
  • Created discussions Rebel XT to SL1 ?
    My wife currently has the Rebel XT and its starting to show its age, primarily the small LCD screen is hard to view images with. I know the sensor on the SL1 is going to be much better than what is ...
  • The focusing system alone is worth it. The 5D3 is pretty good but the 7DII is suppose to be quite a bit better. Considering you're use to the framing of the APS-C sensor I think the 7D II is a no ...
  • Replied in No, but...
    I don't regret moving from the PC to the Mac. I technically switched when I made a Hackintosh back in 2010. In 2012 I purchased my first Mac which is my Retina Macbook Pro. I do occasionally work ...
  • Replied in No.
    Unfortunately not. The airport card in your 2011 Macbook uses a cable to connect to the macbook pro where as the newer machines use a PCI-E card solution. As for an after market solution there ...
  • Created discussions Any former NEX 5 users here?
    I currently use a NEX 5 and it isn't the greatest in terms of capturing photos of my kids running around outside. The focusing just is up to snuff. I'm wondering if there are any former Sony NEX 5 ...
  • Full Frame will always take better pictures regardless of composition, technique or skill. The first image was done with a 5D Mark III The second image below was taken with the Fuji X-T1. You can ...
  • I think this has to be the most thorough cleaning I have ever seen for a DSLR! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrdkFXsr5Us
  • I love it! Nice work. What kind of ND filter did you use on the last shot?
