  • Copy of a building, bridge, etc. is another building, bridge, etc. or parts of said objects, not a photograph. A photo is not a building. I like things to be simple when really they are simple. I ...
  • Define 'commercially'? How about artistically? What if I made a painting of it? Would I need permission to put it in an art gallery? Why would it be different for a framed photo? A public building ...
  • He wrote "one more reason for leaving". Don't you detect a bit of frustration in this comment? Greece needs a plan or more to the point, Greece, Europe, and the IMF need a plan, or a better plan, ...
  • Parthenon yes but not the Parthenon Museum. I would need to get the Museum's architect permission for this? What about the buildings reflected? The buildings in the foreground seem old enough but ...
  • Silly comment. On the other hand, I know how you feel. You would think EU would have much more important matters to attend to right now than this. Then I suppose you should be happy if they leave, ...
  • No. Yes. No. or else? :-| You're very welcome.
  • Is there another option? Random point and shoot? The instant you look in the viewfinder or at the lcd before hitting the shutter release,  you're framing, dude... You need training for this? You ...
  • Interesting...but it's still somewhat handy to know that whatever it is that you want to call it that is not DOF...there is more of it at f16 than at f1.4  The practical problem is finding where ...
  • Was wondering about this too with my old manual lenses. I thought it had something to do with the adapters. And this will work the same with any lens/focal? I'll for sure give it a try. I find that ...
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    A bit. Thanks for your input. This is why I prefer focusing manually myself to AF whenever possible.
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    Your choice, you know your equipment well and work within its limitations. I have to say this is really really good, at the long end of your zoom, at this resolution anyway. Helps too that it's a ...
  • Yeah, sure but three "perfectly good, operating vehicles" for under $1800?  lol!
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    If and if and if, yes. Sure, if the plan is to take pictures of fast moving objects/people at f16 in a church at night with a slow zoom lens... Please do. Samples are good. I quite enjoy samples. ...
  • Replied in LOL
    Actually the fastest zoom for it is the FE 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    Agreed but he quotes the reviewer pushing the ISO to 25600 ISO. We're talking extreme high ISO here. Really, other than reviewers, who takes still shots at 25600 ISO? Astrophotographers? For this ...
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    In camera recharging is fine, what is ridiculously cheap from Sony is not packaging a $10 external charger with a camera that sells for close to $2000 but that's a Sony fail, not a A7II fail. lol.  ...
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    Yeah well, the title (Sony A7ii fail) is yours and you're definitely trolling here with this but it's okay, we get to read good posts like this one above. Here you have a perfectly articulate ...
  • Similar thing happened to me. Memory card gone bad. Replaced it with a new one, problem solved.
  • I travel with the 28-70mm zoom and the FE 35 f2.8. Perfect combo except not wide enough for my needs in many situations so I added an ultrawide MF 20mm with adapter for my next trip.
  • The point is... they're both jpegs. One is generated from the camera's raw data in camera (and resaved after going through ACR default settings) and the second one generated from the camera's raw ...
