  • A nice idea, but I very often find that portions of previous responses have been trimmed away without indicating that the full post was not given (such as through the use of ellipsis points); a ...
  • Replied in Pet Peeve!
    I like your idea, but some people get upset when a person replies to just a trimmed portion of their original post, disagreeing with the responder about which parts are relevant to the exchange ...
  • DPReview has a couple of good articles on noise, ISO, sensor size, and so on.  Part one is at the link below. https://www.dpreview.com/articles/8189925268/what-s-that-noise-shedding-some-light-on-t ...
  • Photography is a hobby that can be pleasurably approached in a number of different ways, so good exposure can mean different things to different people. As one who prefers to use JPEG images just ...
  • I have some sympathy for the first question. Many people take pictures as a sort of visual diary, something to help us remember where we had been and what we had seen, and for that purpose, a more ...
  • If a beginner is reading reviews and articles here at DPReview, some particular terms they will run across frequently in text and tables are f-number, aperture diameter, and equivalent aperture.  ...
  • Replied in two pancakes?
    I'm curious as to which 24mm you tested since I've seen reports on three different ones.  If it was the 24mm f/2.8 pancake and you liked its size, weight, and balance on your camera, then picking ...
  • This isn't much before 1951 and likely isn't what you meant by "technical," but your post brought to mind a book I have that was published in 1940 by Ziff-Davis in their Little Technical Library ...
  • When the manufacturer, in it specifications, states the focal length in terms of 35mm equivalence rather than actual focal length, then equivalence is exactly the right place to start in ...
  • Generally, my favorites end up in the middle to end of the rankings, though sometimes one of the pictures I like will be in or near the top ten.  Most of the time when I vote, I just vote for a ...
  • I've owned five DSLR's, two before this one and two after, but this is the one I've kept, the one I find most enjoyable to use. None of the others (a Nikon, two Olympus models, and a Sigma) let me ...
  • Thanks for sharing the video.  It was an interesting approach, and probably relevant to a great many camera buyers.  I prefer to shoot JPEG and do as little post-processing as possible (re-sizing ...
  • Even if one prefers a 28mm equivalent, there may be an advantage to having a kit zoom that starts at a 24mm equivalent, and that is that lenses are rarely at their best at the most extreme wide ...
  • Commented on photo Beer in Berlin in the An A to Z of Subjects- Week 2, B challenge

    Outstanding image--the only one that really spoke to me in this challenge.

  • Or off of any object in the scene whose tonality you know where you want to place.  For example, green grass at zone v, and no correction needed; a darker bush or tree at zone iv, so you close ...
  • So are you saying that a spot meter or spot metering mode is not a great tool?  There are different choices people can make, and I'm sure that pros must have different needs, but as an ...
  • It did, however, give me new appreciation and respect for politicians.  I don't know that I could have kept enough concentration to complete even one coherent sentence with all that noise.
  • Yes, I can see how strange it seems, and from the other thread, I'm not so sure that Brad sought and received prior permission to post the image here. In the first couple of responses to posters ...
  • A few responders in this thread said none or zero, but then we find that bags or sacks or backpacks are actually used by them, just not something that was sold specifically as a camera bag.  By ...
  • Perhaps, but in that other thread, the person who actually took the picture responded to Brad's posting of it here by telling him, "Thank you for bringing a different independent viewpoint on this."
