    Like you, I learned the quite reasonable approach of using the depth of field scales on the lenses to ensure I was getting the depth of field I needed. One reason I never went auto-focus with film ...
  • Yes, that's why I thanked you for stating "it" (Bill's response) in another way, one that made sense of what was "seemingly" ludicrous. Your further explanation below is also helpful. But you are ...
  • Thank you for stating it another way, one without insults (backwards thinking) or seemingly ludicrous statements (higher ISO settings do not have more noise). You've given a particular ...
  • Nice post.  I have to admit that I'm a bit different, though, in how bothered I am about a little noise.  My old, Samsung DSLR goes up to ISO 3200, but I never shoot it above ISO 400 (base is ...
  • That's a good question, but it might help to know which challenge you have in mind.
  • Given that I've never used continuous AF on any camera, any weight DPR gives that feature is likely more weight than I would give it. I'm not quite understanding your comment about sacrificing ...
  • Replied in Light Meters
    Thank you for the excellent post!  I tried last night to respond to one of Michael Fryd's posts (but the site was having problems at that point) in which he used the word "disconnect" to ...
  • Replied in Light Meters
    I'm getting lost in all the colors, but this last paragraph of yours is interesting. Yes, but that's all I used.  If I bought Kodachrome 25, I also bought Kodak mailers to process it, and they had ...
  • Replied in Light Meters
    I think you missed the part about how incident metering "provides readings that will create accurate and consistent rendition of the subject’s tonality, color, and contrasts regardless of ...
  • Replied in Light Meters
    The substitution of terms indicates that they are synonymous. The attributes of exposure choice in the Sekonic quote are, in my experience, directly related to exposure. An accurate exposure means ...
  • Replied in Light Meters
    It's been a few days since you asked Geru this question, so I'll take a shot at it. Geru linked incident light meter readings to perfect exposure, so by combining information from Gossen and ...
  • Replied in I do
    My normal means of setting exposure is to have the camera in manual mode but program the AE-L button to give me aperture-preferred, spot metered auto adjustment of the shutter speed setting, which ...
  • I don't recall Kodachrome being available as a 100 speed film, but I did try one roll of Kodachrome 200, finding it too grainy for me.  Dad was a Kodachrome 64 shooter while Grandpa preferred ...
  • I would tend to agree, though if tko gave some specific examples of the points he was making it might make more sense to me.  I'm old enough to have used a few cameras which had only one mode, and ...
  • Replied in TZ90
    I don't know whether compact cameras are dead or not, but your mention of the TZ60 reminds me that the recently released TZ90 seems appealing for those times I might want a smaller, quieter, less ...
  • In a photography context, C&C usually means something like "comment and critique." In my opinion, pictures of children are most successful when the child is photographed in the context of a ...
  • Sorry to hear you're having this problem, and about the spoiled holiday photos.  There is software that can be used to correct tilted images, though it's an extra step and hassle to do so.  I've ...
  • A step down in image quality compared to cameras with larger sensors, particularly as ISO is increased, but with features and flexibility galore and a small size, are cameras like the Panasonic ...
  • Replied in Why ...
    I believe she also liked the way the camera felt in hand.  The SL2 is a bit bigger in every dimension and a bit heavier; most importantly, if the August release date I've read about is true, her ...
  • Replied in Yes and no ...
    Footski said you're entitled to your opinion, but if the example above is typical of what she encountered in the other thread, I can understand why she just wanted to delete the thing and get out ...
