  • Replied in ony comment
    I was only commenting on that which I left I'm speaking only to shooting this shot from the same location in normal then crop mode: I'm suggesting you will "see" the same DR in both

  • Replied in Mode
    Which is what crop modes do.  Also I think there is a difference between Engineering Dynamic Range (calculated) vs actual perceptual Dynamic range. Bill is not wrong in his numbers...but take a ...
  • Replied in PDR
    I think that's due to the way PDR is calculated. PDR is not Dynamic Range. I think you can shoot an actual back-lit Dynamic Range chart (and maybe use Imatest) in both modes and see the DR doesn't ...
  • Replied in Thank you
    Ah...I can see that.  Thanks for the info !
  • Replied in Then
    Then wouldn't......on a DX body it would sometimes also come in handy, especially when shooting with a similar w/a FoV?  I don't use the mode my self...but trying to see/understand the benefit on ...
  • Replied in Has
    It has no inherent effect on dynamic range.... Just as cropping in Photoshop has no affect on dynamic range
  • It can give you more frames per second, so can be useful in some scenarios.  In some rare case the smaller file size might be a help
  • Replied in Just
    Price just isn't a major/minor factor in my lens choices.  Build quality often plays a bigger part as I have a tendency to keep them forever And great value and fine...just not for me.
  • Replied in I am
    I am Just not a fan of the 70-300mm DX f/4.5-6.3G. Especially the non-VR version. Incompatible with to many bodies. Focus is very good!  A sharp lens but I'm not a fan of it's vignetting...though ...
  • Replied in Still..
    Still not the case as you are confusing resolution with sharpness. Per the actual resolution measurement above....D2X has the higher resolution than the 5D in comparison.  Perhaps you're just ...
  • Replied in Simply
    You are simply misinterpreting the comparison.  In this one case...more a focus/lens difference than an inherent sensor resolution difference
  • Replied in didn't
    I was only speaking to the licensing point you discussed. I only know how Nikon and Canon work with Sigma and Tamron,...hence the "maybe" I emphasized when discussing the similar relationship they ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    Actually could be. Same case with Nikon. Nikon refuses to work with Sigma but they do with Tamron. So Sigma must reverse engineer and compatibility issues popup more often than is the case with ...
  • Replied in done
    You have been approved to post. Sorry for the delay and good Luck
  • Replied in I think not
    Yes...what focus points you can select can change.  Much the same as the Number of Focus Points menu changes the focus boxes you can select...but the total AF array doesn't necessarily go inactive ...
  • Replied in I think not
    No...I do not think the camera limits the available sensors.  They are always active/available...just may not be able to lock focus.
  • Replied in Central
    It affects the sensitivity of the central AF array.....the others will already have issues with that little light....but will still be Cross-type if they are cross type Yes...there are 15 cross ...
