  • Breakthrough Photography makes CPLs with knurling on the top edge.
  • I always have SUNWAYFOTO T1A20D-T - a sturdy, compact and lightweight mini-tripod either in my bag, or attached to it outside: Read my mini-review here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60612909
  • Storage is cheap these days. If we eventually have a higher-resolution sensor, somebody can always select a lower resolution output to save the storage space, reduce noise, and, possibly, increase ...
  • it costs nothing, and makes a great flash diffuser. Sorry, Gary Fong... For macro or portrait Omni-directional http://www.zodiacphoto.com
  • In my opinion, Olympus and Panasonic need to return to their root – a promise of a smaller and lighter system with good image quality and great portability. Add toughness, good weather-sealing, ...
  • Aren't you lucky? For me, to go to a camera store that sells this stuff, I would have to walk for about 250 miles... How does Novoflex fit on the P0? Did you have to use a spacer / washer between ...
  • Replied in Processing power
    My first few tests were non-conclusive. It looks like the program is good with hard edges, but struggles with low-contrast details. Samples where the file was intentionally downsized before ...
  • Interesting - I bought both TurnStyle 10V2 and 20V2, but returned the 20 back - it was too large for my needs. But I don't bring more than 2 or 3 lenses with me.
  • I bought Think Tank Photo TurnStyle 10 V2.0 for Alaska trip, and I really liked it. Fits my Sony FF camera and 3 lenses perfectly:
  • Throw in a pancake 70-200mm, and I will buy it! ;) I don't think even 85mm pancake is possible without some huge IQ compromises.
  • A mass exodus - of course not! But even a dozen of identical used lenses appearing at the same time on Ebay may bring the price down a bit...
  • That's wait and see... If Nikon comes up with something really amazing , I may get a body and a couple of lenses to play with. I will not sell my Sony stuff right away - I think Ebay will be ...
  • I could not find a "perfect" tripod that would cover all my camera support needs in all possible scenarios. Like many others, I went through many tripods, from cheap no-name $50 contraption with ...
  • Replied in Adapter?
    Would Nikon's 300mm PF work on Sony with any adapter? If aperture control is not possible, can it be used fully open and with manual focus? Or focus is by wire too?
  • What head you will be using? For headless tripods with great height-to-weight ratio at reasonable price, look at Oben CT-2331 or CT-2431: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?ci=2636&fct=fct_brand ...
  • Not at all - I always read all replies to my threads. In this case, I just came to the conclusion that there is no acceptable answer yet...
  • Created discussion thread Macro / close-up lens for RX100 series?
    Is there an external macro / close-up lens that works well will RX100 series? I am looking for a quality achromatic lens rather than a cheap uncorrected "diopter set". How do you attach the ...
  • At least for me, there is no one perfect setup. For now, I ended up with Gitzo Traveler with Arca-Swiss P0 ballhead, and Sirui T-025X with no central column and with Leofoto EB-36 ballhead. Gitzo ...
  • JPEG was developed in 1994. Since then, both image resolution and media storage capacity increased tremendously. It would be great to have a file format that, while larger than JPG, would be: - ...
  • Mine is in Nikon mount. Sharper than Sony 70-200 f/4 at the same focal length, especially in the corners and at the edges of the frame. Light and small, excellent IQ from APO design.
