Hi, I read an old thread on Nikonians where someone said the D610 has no AA filter. I seem to recall reading that in one other place in a forum. But I've not seen anything about that in any of the product literature. Does it or doesn't it ? How about the DF, would that be the same ? Thanks ! --Peace,Floyd

Thinking about the Nikon DF, but coming from micro43, I’m really worried about lens size and weight. The 50mm f1.8 G is going to be a perfect walkaround and low light prime, and probably the 70-200 f4 plus a TC 1.7x is going to cover my telephoto needs with very good IQ. But, for an standard zoom (looking for an only 3 lenses kit), Nikon 24-85 f3.5-4.5 VR is the best balanced option I’ve found (between Nikon 24-70 f2.8, 24-120 f4 and Sigma 24-105 as the other options I've considered). It’s...

I just picked up a used (ebay) Calumet DF3, which I understand was the housebrand-clone of the Gossen Digipro F. Putting it through its paces, it looks like the calibration is OK for ambient (daylight). But when I use a flash (SB 700 used off-camera) it needs a +1 calibration correction according to the digital target I'm shooting: f/8 gives the proper exposure according to the histogram, but without the correction factor put in, the meter says f/5.6 (And if I shoot f/5.6 with the flash set...

Hi, long time reader, first post..Been doing some research on Equivalent Aperture values and the required shutter speeds of various sensors to achieve the correct exposure.Using Imaging Resource's Exposure section on various camera reviews, shows something that doesn't add up to me. ill do a quick comparison table (All examples are at ISO200 with a F2.8 lens): Nikon Df- (Equiv aperture F2.8) @ 1.3Lux needs 8sec shutter Nikon D7100- (Equiv aperture F4.3) @ 1.3Lux also needs 8sec shutter Sony...

I am going to Rome and Paris in mid June. What is the interesting landscape spot to shoot? I am planing to bring D800 mounting Sigma 10-20 ( 15-30 24 mp on d800) and Df mounting 24-70. This is my first visit, any suggestion and sharing experiences? Thanks --'Photography is about feel of view, not field of view'I view, I feel, I shoothttp://gplus.to/Grandpaparazzi

I'm considering whether to upgrade my current Olympus E-M5 to an E-M1 or whether to make a switch to the X-T1. Having used the comparison tool on this website to compare the Fuji's high-ISO RAW performance with that of my current and potential upgrade Olympus models (and also with the Nikon Df) I am amazed by how little noise the Fuji exhibits. One question I'm unclear about, that I'd appreciate clarification on, is whether or not Fuji applies noise reduction to its RAW files. Or, to put it...

I am in the process of finalizing my workflow and am trying to decide which noise reduction, and possibly, which capture sharpening to use. If there isn't much difference, I would prefer to stay in Lightroom. Since the noise reduction is done early in the workflow, I would like to stay non-destructive for as long as possible. I don't have a complete understanding of going to NIK and then coming back to Lightroom. My sense is that going to a TIFF limits my further editing in Lightroom. Any...

I think it was a comparison of the iso performance of the Df, and D610 in which there was a still life of a model ship taken at all iso's from low to high. It's driving me nuts not to be able to find it again. I thought it might be the post df or 610 which one is right for you, but apparently not. :-D

I am not trying to start an argument. Is one better than the other? The Df is 16 MP; the 6D is 20 MP. In the real world, would I be able to see a difference? I own a 5D classic, but I'm willing to switch. I'm looking for practical advice. I am not a brand loyalist.  Which ever one I buy, I will start with 2 lenses: the Sigma 50mm Art, and the Sigma 24-105 f/4 Art.

Not sure if anyone else, but after using my Df for about two months, there are several annoying "dust spots" (one of them is more string-like) on my Df VF, making the shooting experience challenging as I keep seeing spots that are not actually there, especially when using MF lenses. At first I thought this can be easily resolved by removing the eyepiece and giving it a quick clean, but apparently I was dead wrong. The dust spots persist. I spent another two hours inspecting the focusing...
