I am not sure which part is the haloing you referring to. This is a single shot photo, with brightening of the shadow part done in LR.
Finally, a true representation of "equivalent to 135 FF" , even better then I expected, it is done in a graph.
Well done DPR, keep it up. Stop the "24-200/2.8" frauds.
DPR should stop using the term "effective focal length". It is misleading.
It is better to say "has FOV of".
So it is a 19-45 F3.5 to F6.4, right?
if we talk about 135 equivalent why do you say 28-70 F5.25-9.6?
Anthony Hoare: Interesting article. I can see your point with the post processing argument. At the moment I'm use LR which is very slow at creating RAW previews. If I were to shoot JPEG + RAW I could quickly cycle through the images find the ones I like enough to edit in Lightroom and simply edit those.
I'd love a D600, but I like the 1.5x extra focal length on my lenses.If only money was no object.
There really is nothing stopping you from cropping D600's images, D600 slightly more reach than D200 and slightly less reach than D90.
DerpyWebber: A comparison (in terms of AF points) with the S2 isn't really valid. t's a studio machine, released into a niche that has operated (and still operates, for the most part) solely with manual focus. The single AF point isn't as much necessary as it is a gimmick. The D600 and 6D, on the other hand, are 35mm DSLRs, with mounts that prioritize autofocus performance (which is, practically speaking, a necessity with modern lenses, as well as the types of photography that best can take advantage of the form factor, such as wildlife and sports photography). That, and it's 23k, not 30k :P
I understand your sentiment about S2 being a studio machine, but that is more of a result of that is all that it can do. D600 does not lack anything that would make it a capable studio only camera apart from less resolution than S2, it simply is capable of doing a lot more.
S2 got a price drop? Cool, guess that will improve its sales!
Just goes to show how dumb is it to pay big money for photography prints...
Paintings command big money because it cannot be reproduced, even if it did it is not original. with photography each printing is as original as the ones before and the ones after.
I concur with another commenter that this picture would not have made it my keepers folder.
No one really pay any attention to these marketing statements, everyone knows they are not sincere. Nikon after all is a Japanese company and used and still do make military gear, these statements are written by western advertising execs who get paid good money. Why do we expect it to care for Africa?
People should just wake the hell up.
5D3 wins every time. the clarity and contrast is hugely better.
iPhone's camera is a wide angle, there is a lot distortion if photographer does not avoid them. it is only not so obvious in landscape shots. and it only has good contrast and clarity in bright daylight.
iAPX: So DPReview is expanding into surveillance camera?
Because I don't see the point to shoot stars with 1080p sensor, it's irrelevant even if doable. Or doing a "movie" with still stars on sky. And moving stars short movies has been done with DSLR, using long exposure times, with great success (and not limited to 1080p).
Next subject will be about VGA (640x480) identification camera sensor on laptop?It's camera sensors, but it's not relevant here!
the problem is precisely "you dont see the point?"
if this camera is as good as they say, it will be able to take very good quality images at high shutter speeds where light is not abundant. wide life, sports, deep water photography can all benefit from that.
Allen Chernack: I tried the M + Auto ISO and for the most part if works well. One issue is when there is too much light and the ISO can't drop low enough. I was shooting at 1/500 and f8 and the ISO couldn't get low enough to avoid a blown out image. Realizing this I adjusted the f stop and things worked OK. The lens is a 70-300 which is nearly 500 with the Canon 60D so I use 1/500 shutter speed.
yes, Auto-ISO is as limited by ISO range as Av mode is limited by shutter speed range and Tv mode is limited by aperture range. I would not call it an issue.
This is covered in "When Not to Use M + auto-ISO"
Charcurt: Very usefull ,thanks,
Can I ask, I shoot a lot of soccer,with field access ,I always shoot manual,but up till now set iso manually, will m+auto iso work well here? For example set my aperture at 2.8. Then shutter 1/2000, then iso auto, when the exposure changes as I move arround or a cloud enters scene, iso will be only setting changing?
With flash I always shoot av and set 1/125 ettl does the rest,iso 100.
on 60D you should be able to set iauto-iso limit up to 6400.
yes, that is exactly the sort of application M+auto iso is useful for. if you look at my gallery you should see a series of photos of touch rugby. shot with M+ auto iso.
when using flash, auto-iso always set iso to 400.
netgarden: My observation of those who use auto ISO in the field of wildlife and BIFs is they end up with alot fo PP to do and also their photos are not as sharp as mine. I think if you need to force shutterspeed then be prepared to deal with noise in auto ISO, and on a cropped photo that is even harder to PP. The camera does not compensate as I would like it to.
What did people do before auto ISO? They controlled all the options, and certainly turned out beautiful work. Auto ISO to me [and I have the wonderful ISO master MKIV] is using uneeded, uncontrolled ISO, and if I do use auto ISO I limit it to ISO1000.
I've seen perfectly good light photos ruined by auto ISO, so you really have to know what you are doing. Don't expect perfect clarity if you decide on auto ISO. There are other options that are more effective for wildlife/odd light situations/need of focus speed.
"My observation of those who use auto ISO in the field of wildlife and BIFs is they end up with alot fo PP to do and also their photos are not as sharp as mine"1, auto-iso has notthing to do with sharpness. 2, auto iso will result in lowest iso possible, as explained in the article already.
"The camera does not compensate as I would like it to."compensate for what? shutter speed is already at the slowest possible.
"What did people do before auto ISO?"what did people do before care and air planes?
"if I do use auto ISO I limit it to ISO1000"1, iso1000 is a bad idea because it is iso 800 pushed, 2, limiting auto-iso only results in far worse image because of servere under-exposure.
"I've seen perfectly good light photos ruined by auto ISO, so you really have to know what you are doing."how is it even possible?
Fra_Pe: > Canons before 7D had a non-working auto-ISO that was always stuck on ISO 400
Very good article, but this is NOT true - also my 50D is working very fine with auto-ISO. As an example: On a given session with 238 images I got 13 different ISO values as result working with auto-ISO: 100,125,160,200,250,320,400,500,640,800,1000,1250,1600.
Thanks, I didnt not know this.
thanos: It would be great though if we could set limits for the AutoISO to play in. For example if we could set the AutoISO to be from 100-400 etc.
this limit is available in 60D I think, however it is completely unnecessary, because arbitrarily limiting iso only result in badly exposed image. there has been extensive discussions on this issue, cheers.
fpix: Sorry, I do strongly disagree with very many points in this article. Too short space to comment everything, so just some points, based on 7D:- EvM produces in certain situations more than +/-1EV faulty exposure. - Working with high ISO one needs to be very careful with proper exposure. The key is NOT TO UNDEREXPOSE (besides not to overexpose, which is obvious regardless of ISO and camera). No EC in situation when you expect that EvM will fail with more than 1EV makes AutoISO unusable. A real pitty.- I feel you have a bad understanding of M/spot metering from what you say here. Sorry if I am wrong. Manual does no way mean you fiddle around with A/T/ISO & metering until you get the proper exposure. M/spot produces precise, quick and reproductible results if you know how to do it, far better than any ev./matrix metering I have seen so far. AutoISO could be fine sometimes, but with EC.Just open some topics in the forum and I would gladly come with examples, maybe good for more people.
there have been 2 threads on this topic in 7D/60D forum, both started by me, you are welcome to chip in your view. all three issues you raised have been addressed in that thread IIRC.
