  • Thanks!
  • I'm not that convinced that the removal of the AA filter really adds that much detail. It was interesting when the Foveon sensor came out that lots of people said "Ah, Bayer sensors look soft ...
  • I'm thinking of buying the f/3.5 version, primarily as a compact high quality landscape lens. Now there is going to be a f/2 version, should I be worried it would be better to get this one? Or ...
  • Thanks for this. It's kind of fascinating how when I sit looking straight ahead I can detect the presence of an object propped up on the radiator a couple of feet to the right of my right ear. Yet ...

    I don't think I would enjoy the Sony that much for handheld photography. I think it is lighter (slightly) than the G9 but it seems heavier, probably because the grip is undersized. The G9 is ...
  • I think the real problem with this shot is the model's cheek (her left cheek, but on the right side of the photo) as Jim noted. If you zoom in, the highlight areas on her cheek bone are a mass of ...

    In terms of gear I am still working with, I currently have a m4/3 system as my primary walk around system:  G9 backed up with a Gx7 (and a EM-10 I got for the live time features but actually have ...
  • Replied in Aspect ratio
    No one has ever paid me anything for photography :-) And currently I can only make A3 prints but I'm planning on moving up to A2 next year. I actually think I'm perfectly fine with the small army ...

    It's also very easy to do tilt stitching. I have this tripod head called a Flextilt. It's a Z shaped arangement. It uses precision friction joints so you can move the head without having to clamp ...
  • Please don't let Greg see this..... :-)
  • Replied in Aspect ratio
    Thank you, Rich, I certainly couldn't have expressed that half as well.

    Simple answer: cost. There is only one model of high rez camera that is affordable by me and that is a full frame camera. If you can point me to a 4:3 or similar ratio ~40-50MP class camera that ...

    The problem for me is that there is only one high resolution camera available for a decent price and that is the Sony A7r2.  £1200 for 42MP? A bargain. A GFX 50 is double that price even purchased ...
  • Yep it's unfortunate that although there are many formats available, the two biggest sellers are both 3:2, the awkward one.

    Hi Ted I'm not sure what an optometrist is but, yes, I'm pretty sure my natural field of view is massively wider than most wide angle lenses, even though the quality is very poor. And therefore, ...
  • I'm trying to shoot exclusively square. And for specific reasons, not just to challenge myself or for a particular aesthetic. I actually think that squashed aspect ratios are easier to train your ...
  • Replied in video demo
    I'm exhausted now, please take over :-) (And we haven't even started on so-called telephoto compression!  I have one last thing to say about that one. If you shoot distant mountains with a fish eye ...

    Except that is an obvious illusion. When you use a 50mm lens you are seeing a significant crop compared with what you see with your naked eyes. The eye sees a lot more width than the 50mm does. The ...
  • Replied in answer 3
    When you shoe horn a wider field of view into the same size frame, the only way you can do that is by shrinking everything. I would call it a "wide angle view". The point here is that the overall ...
  • Replied in answer 2
    Ok, now we are getting somewhere. You have grasped the basics of perspective and that changing focal length has zero effect on it. Yes, as you would expect. Reducing the focal length reduces the ...
