  • Have to agree with jonsi.  Why would you buy a Hasselblad if Jpeg is the format you want to use?  LOTS of cheaper ways to go there with perfectly adequate image quality.
  • If I wanted to do that, I would take several images with various levels of "sharpness" and combine them in post processing.  I don't think what is normally called "motion blur" is the primary ...
  • Camera phones are really  important to people who actually aren't into "photography" in the sense that forum members on DPReview are into photography.  For that reason camera phones will be ...
  • It absolutely will ...... if sharpness is an important part of the image quality for that shot.  Sometimes it is, and sometimes it is almost irrelevant.  One thing that is always true is that you ...
  • Some good "tricks" here that do work, but I just want to add my voice to the "dump the UV filter" chorus.
  • There are some image quality issues that can be fixed in post, some that can be "improved" in post, and some that simply cannot be fixed (blurry pictures is one of them).  Correcting bad original ...
  • Exactly.  It's a very flexible combination.
  • Now, that there is funny!
  • I disagree too.  Color preferences (and that is all they are as you are discussing them) are just preferences.  There is no right or wrong, or better or worse - just preferences.  You can prefer ...
  • The short answer is "Yes".  All of those things are issues when it comes to composing photographs.  From your post, my suggestion is  to think more about the crop you want when you compose the ...
  • Flowers in the wind (and it doesn't take much) are very quick and unpredictable moving subjects.  Very difficult to get sharp in a wind.  The highest shutter speeds you can manage are about the ...
  • Yes, stop using that cord.  Definition of insane: doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
  • In some situations it definitely will.  In some situations it won't.  There is never a situation where it will improve the image from a modern digital camera.
  • First question you need answered is why do you think you need a new lens?  Function will often dictate the specifications you need.
  • Time to read the manual.  You have something set in some  menu somewhere (I don't use any Sony cameras so I'm talking generalities) that is messing up stuff. Is there a button or menu item that ...
  • First suggestion.  Put away the flash.  Set the camera to Auto mode and shoot some pictures in daylight.  See what you get.
  • Good advice so far.  You are becoming aware of the reason some people pay lots of money for large sensor cameras, and longer focal length wide aperture lenses for DSLR's.   That is the sort of ...
  • Lenses absolutely make a difference. Generally, you get what you pay for, and optical quality, functional reliability, and ergonomics cost money.  Experienced photographers will often compare the ...
  • It will always be the largest that survive the longest (assuming good management) but as long as everyone is willing to let (and often help)the biggest keep eating the smaller fish, eventually ...
  • Do you actually believe that a camera processed (manipulated) image has had no digital manipulation?
