  • There's a general aesthetic preference for the golden ratio, approximately 1.6:1.  I don't know if it's innate or handed down from antiquity, but it is something we have today.  Most things aren't ...
  • Yeah. You're exactly right. I even almost said "or one stop closed if you are using a 2x TC" but figured that would be too nerdy. I haven't been on dpreview in a while and forgot that accuracy is ...
  • I understand how a TC works. Like I said, if you use a Canon TC it takes care of the math for you.  That's all.  I've never shot with a Nikon TC, but I'd be shocked if they didn't do the same ...
  • If you use a Canon TC, it takes care of everything for you.  A 600 f/4 with a 1.4TC will report it as f/5.6.  If you change the aperture to f/8 it will be f/8.
  • There seems to be this notion that if a cell phone can overcome some inherent photographic limitation, in a clever computational way that it will 'kill' whatever that limitation was.  That's the ...
  • Replied in Of course I do!
    I like cameras and I like talking about them.  I don't care if they ignore me or do exactly the opposite of what I suggest (although my main suggestion is to touch whatever they buy as feel is 90% ...
  • Looking at the 1DX Mark III announcement , I am completely confused by this statement: Any ideas on what that means, exactly?  I understand how a low pass filter can reduce moire, but I'm not aware ...
  • Replied in Went with Kirk
    Great fit.  t also comes with a QD connection at the bottom, which I could add to my RRS strap.  Works really well.
  • Created discussion thread L bracket for 5d Mark IV
    It looks like the RRS L Bracket has gotten fancier and even more expensive.  Does anyone have experience with the new design?  Is the more traditional design from Kirk a better option now?
  • Another follow up on Christmas eve and eventually it cleared "processing".  I'll chalk it up to before Christmas craziness.
  • Your joke was that you got a really small camera that looks like a full sized camera.  My joke was that you got a normal sized camera but are just really really tall
  • Would you like to be on my basketball team?
  • Has anyone else had problems ordering directly from Canon USA? My first order was cancelled almost immediately without explanation. My CC showed the charges immediately and wasn’t the cause of the ...
  • I don't need a 5D4, but at this price I kinda want one.  How compelling an upgrade from the 6D is it?
  • If you aren't using botnets to store copies of all your photos on every compromised computer in the world, do you even care about your photographs? Even that is nothing.  U2 was so worried about ...
  • Amazon stores full resolution raw photos. It's great but it's mostly just there for peace-of-mind backup.  I wish dpreview would integrate Amazon photos somehow, but I don't think Amazon is as ...
  • I'm carrying a bunch of other stuff, so a different backpack doesn't really work.  I carried my old T2i in the backpack for a while, and it fits, but it's a bit lumpy a bit heavy.  The 6D, ...
  • Created discussion thread Camera suggestions for my backpack
    I have a Canon 6D and an 80D and love both them, but I walk about 5 miles a day (2.5 each way) through a beautiful city with four seasons and take a lot of pictures with my iphone 6. On special ...
  • Interest in photography has never been higher.  There was a beautiful sunset on the walk home the other day.  Ten years ago, I would have been the only one taking pictures.  These days?  Literally ...
  • You can't think of any?  You must not spend much time on the internet.  There are lots.  This one is so low stakes that it's refreshing.  Some of the others are literal life-and-death things.
