  • As part of my continuing diary on living with the FZ1000, I started looking at image quality. First up is a test of the FZ1000 wide open at 400mm compared to my Lumix G7 m4/3 camera fitted with the ...
  • More importantly, if Sigma join the L consortium and make bodies, we'll have hours of fun comparing the results of Q vs Bayer within the same system. Seriously for a moment, it would allow people ...
  • Let me throw a rock:  the SD14 is cr*p at colour (mine is anyway), nasty unpredictable colour casts.  The SD15 seems to have nice colour. I have not used a Q or played with the files but I think ...
  • When I got the FZ1000, I looked up some opinions on diffraction limits on small sensors and the opinion seemed to be only use f/2.8, f/4. That seemed a bit limiting choice of apertures for A mode, ...
  • On to which you'll be able to bolt any lens ever made with the help of some industrious Chinese engineers and ebay...
  • I think the difference is that P is very close to the kind of "automatic" mode "real" photographers sneer at because it sets both shutter speed and aperture. You can still EV compensate but while ...
  • So tomorrow... the great reveal of Sigma's next move or a damp squib in your opinion?
  • No more to add except to point out that I started photography using a Boots Beiretta with no metering at all. Exposure by sunny 16.  My first proper camera was a Zenith E which has an uncoupled ...
  • I've never used spot metering in a camera (although I used to own a Pentax spotmeter). My experience is if you want to miss the exposure by 10 stops, use spot. Maybe your example above is a good ...
  • As I said more than once, everyone has their way of working and if it works for you,well, that's why cameras have multiple modes. But, it is simply wrong to dismiss everyone who chooses to use A or ...
  • Replied in Tie Breaker?
    Sorry, I was irritated and in no mood for having the issue side tracked with arguments about what some vendor decided to call some technology 40 years ago.  If they had called manual exposure mode ...
  • Replied in Tie Breaker?
    I'm equally frustrated with him. I suppose this is just a trivial debate but I find myself getting really angry with the nonsense he is spouting. I've never been a violent man but the frustration ...
  • Replied in Tie Breaker?
    I know you like to play the pedant, Ted but this is silly word play. The meanings of technical stuff like exposure modes change with technology and are simply not useful in this kind of ...
  • I don't know if you are just ignorant or being deliberately insulting. This is nonsense, sorry. To take you example, I point camera out of window, adjust exp comp for correct exposure. I half press ...
  • I'm sorry Scott, but I can't let this go. You are being ridiculous. Anyone is free to work in any mode they want, that's personal preference but I can't let you get away with untruths. Working in M ...
  • I honestly think this is little more than pretentiousness to be honest. I'm not talking about green square mode or even program mode, just semi automatic A mode which in practice is just a little ...
  • I know, but you are stretching your argument here. This kind of photography is record shots. Yes, you could have a hundred photographers putting their drones up and you'd get a few variations on ...
  • Fuji are announcing a GFX100s soon. They are also bringing out a cheaper XE3 rangefinder style GFX50r to be announced next week if the rumour sites have it right.
  • Fuji have done lots of unusual sensor layouts. The X trans is merely a different CFA layout but prior to that they had their EXR layout which is like two sensors interlaced and gives you the ...
  • Drone pictures have the same problem. The art of photographer is being very,. very selective. When your camera takes in an enormous view, even though you can vary it a bit, it doesn't make a huge ...
