    When you want to take a 200% crop of a shot and send it off to a client after bumping up its exposure - by all means use the Nikon.

    Meanwhile, I can still make 30" enlargements of...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    The sensor limitations? Seriously, how often is that going to make a difference in the real world? 99.99% of the time, the output of this camera is good enough for any pro, let alone an amateur....

  • How do we cope looking at people with our Normal-equivalent optical system eyes, Mr Bond?

  • There is a time and place for technical concerns. This site serves that discussion. And there are lots of other sites where the artistic elements of photography are covered.

    But not everyone who...

  • This advice has become a mantra.  And I think it is wrong for several reasons.  First of all, just because a camera feels good in your hands the first time you pick it up, does not mean that the ...
