  • My thought is that this is an area where camera reviews/tests should be able to help. I don't often read DPR's reviews anymore because I no longer find them as helpful as they used to be (e.g., ...
  • Maybe I'm just not using it right, but I can't seem to find a full screen view such as I could get with the previous system in the slideshow mode.  Before, on full screen all I saw was the image, ...
  • I have a strong bias for a normal focal length lens, that is, something around a 50mm equivalent. I have a zoom for my APS-C DSLR, but I use the 35mm focal length 99% of the time. On the other ...
  • I'll have to search their site and see if I can find that article and their explanation. It might make interesting reading.
  • In another current thread, someone posted a link to a Mike Browne video on manual exposure. Near the beginning, he made a statement that I think most camera users over the decades would ...
  • I haven't had an interest in Fuji x-trans sensors, but I have liked other Imaging Resource reviews.  What kind of unfair comparisons do they make with respect to Fuji cameras?
  • Replied in HDR scene
    Thanks for posting that link.  I don't recall hearing about him before, but it was very pleasant spending time with Mike Browne watching this video.
  • The best explanation I've seen about how exposure effects noise is in an article here at DPReview: https://www.dpreview.com/articles/8189925268/what-s-that-noise-shedding-some-light-on-the-sources- ...

  • I don't disagree with you, but I happen to be one of those "less likely" individuals who prefer a separate camera yet shoots JPEG.  I'm not more serious about photography than those who use a ...
  • Replied in I have two
    My Ricoh CX3 and Panasonic FZ300 both have 1:1 as a choice.  All the Panasonic models I handled in the store this past summer offered the 1:1 aspect ratio, but I only handled the one I bought ...
  • I like cameras too, and have yet to even try taking a picture with my telephone.  Most of the time when I leave the house, the telephone stays at home. I'm afraid I haven't moved on to smaller, ...
  • I downloaded an E-M5 Mark II manual, and there is a chart on page 110 that shows the different things that half-pressing or fully pressing the shutter release does, plus what the AEL/AFL button ...
  • Interesting perspective.  You seem to be saying that the photographer is only involved if there is post-processing work to be done.
  • Replied in +1
    Thanks for that explanation.
  • Replied in It depends...
    Perhaps that's why my kit zoom has proven so satisfactory to me.  Tests show that it's optically at its best at my preferred focal length of 35mm (which I use nearly all time, with 55mm employed ...
  • I'm an SOOC shooter because a large part of the fun for me in photography is seeing if I can use the camera and lens settings at the time of capture to create the picture I want.  If I have to use ...
  • You removed from Richrf's response two sentences that I believe are the crux of his argument. Between "history lesson" and "I don't ever . . ." Richrf wrote, "If someone needed post-providing ...
  • I don't know what the trend will be with future bridge cameras, but I chose the Panasonic FZ300 this past summer.  It has the smaller 1/2.3" sensor, not a 2/3" sensor, but the image quality meets ...
  • After pressing the menu button, choose the "Rec" menu (topmost symbol on the left column). On page 1 of the Rec menu, choose "Quality." There are various JPEG, raw plus JPEG, and raw only choices.
