  • Replied in Of Course!
    That's extremely inaccurate. While the term "AI" is heavily abused by marketers, the product we're discussing here does use Computer Vision, Deep Learning models to de-blur. That's why it takes up ...
  • I found that annoying too. I get that they don't want people using it for free during the trial, but it made it much harder to evaluate. The closest you can get is "Zoom to Fit" and "Side by Side ...
  • You're right not to trust the reviewers, particularly if they fail to declare the conflict. If it helps, I paid retail (w/random coupon), and have found good results in 2/3 of the modes it offers. ...
  • Which makes it even more expensive proportionally. Now you're paying $160 instead of $200 for an A7C + Kit Lens, but getting it for 3 days instead of 7. It is still a very expensive way to test any ...
  • That's a great way to blow $200+ in seven days. I mean if you're going to rent they seem about the best, but people act like camera/lens renting is free as opposed to "I could buy an iPad with ...
  • Most offers are only for college students, but some more limited offers are available to college-level educators/teachers. It varies brand by brand, and UNiDAYS forwards your account type to B&H so ...
  • This is silly to the point of being trolling. If you really believed this (which I doubt) it is trivial to disprove: Just turn on and off IBIS for the body you're using (can even be configured as ...
  • If you have unlimited time, skill, or luck you don't need good gear. If however you want to make up for a deficit of the three good gear helps sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. I can hand a ...
  • Those photographs are fantastic. If they're HDR you've done a great job of keeping it subtle.
  • Smaller lenses on your current camera would be nearly the same size: https://camerasize.com/compact/#624.667,858.929,638,555,ha,t The "magic" of the RX100 III is that it is legit pocketable. I'd ...
  • You misread what was posted, and not by a little. That's what happens when you ignore the context . I was saying that I hold gear using the Pro/L moniker to a different standard, and will happily ...
  • Pick one: (1) It is so dark, at minimum brightness the LCD is distracting, but you also cannot see the black & white non-backlit top screen (or it is backlit, but therefore also distracting in this near ...
  • The Olympus is 16-50 f/ 8 equivalent. That's a pretty significant speed difference that nobody has mentioned. It is 10 mm shorter, 100g lighter though, and most importantly goes from 35mm all the ...
  • More surface area allows the faster collection of particulate which is dragged back into the len's body (and or degrade the seals). All lenses will suffer from this eventually , but collapsible ...
  • I'll happily buy non-Pro, non-weather sealed collapsible lenses. I was discussing the "Pro" designation of this collapsible lens and the limitations therein.
  • Collapsible lenses aren't "Pro" grade because water/moisture gets trapped in the fold, mold grows, and eventually spreads. Camera companies have been quietly putting antimicrobials into the fold ...
  • It is from THE FUTURE! Maybe Panny's glass got so good they could see into tomorrow (that f/0.0001 Super-Nocticoron) or, you know, it is from Japan's timezone. Either/or.
  • So about Fuji JPEG: I did one of those YouTube things where they show you photos, you rank them, and they tell you which is which at the end. I found that SooC Fuji JPEGs really are better than at ...
  • Thanks for the answer. Maybe with the G9's firmware update you could side by side focus and let us know?
  • So how do you feel the G9 (from previous ownership) compares to your Fujifilm X-S10? And what niches do you feel they both fulfil to justify owning both at the same time?
