  • I know hundreds of photographers from associations and shootings. I can only think of four who shoot video, and all are professionals: - two of them are stills professionals do it on their ...
  • It's a combination of camera plus image stabilisation lens. Olympus say the maximum is limited by the rotation of the earth. Good stuff. See here: https://petapixel.com/2016/09/26/olympus-says-eart ...
  • It's the impression that I get  when observing most other photographers using LCD's. What's your method of using an LCD/Liveview? For what subjects? Last week I watched a guy using the LCD screen ...
  • The user interface of a DSLR has been fine-honed over 50 years - for usage with the camera held in two hands, up to the eye. Using Liveview with your DSLR at arms length waving about in the air is ...
  • Replied in Give us a break
    The D7100 is a superb camera. The optical viewfinder is excellent. The image quality beats any MFT camera (which I assume is what you're referring to by a system with 6.5 stops of image ...
  • Replied in Yes. Mostly
    My first camera without a viewfinder was the Sony RX100 mk1 (that you mention). I used it for people snaps indoors or for cityscapes outdoors at night when I didn't want to bring a DSLR kit with ...
  • Replied in Don't agree
    Where do you get your information?? I've been using (Nikon) DSLR cameras with sensor shakers for the last ten years, that's four different cameras. I've only had to remove dust once, and a few ...
  • My standard print size is now A2, as I have a printer readily available at my club. - APS-C (24Mpix Nikon D7200) looks great. However - - FF (36Mpix Nikon D800) looks stunning I feel that with A2 ...
  • I'm in Bangkok right now. As I've broken my APS-C DSLR travelzoom I've been combing the shops for a replacement. What I see right now: 1. Fuji X series 2. Olympus and Panasonix MFT 3. Sony A series FF
  • Replied in EVF is ugly
    When I see an image I see it first with my eye, then I see it through the viewfinder. I know from experience how the end result is going to look - usually Something close to what I see with my ...
  • I simplified by MS-Access databases a long time ago and made them into flat Excel files (basically films and events).  Some of the information that I had in the Access database is now my ACDSee ...
  • I believe that Adobe have followed the same subscription model as Microsoft with Office and OneDrive (which I have). You pay a yearly subscription (about 65$) and you get all of the Office ...
  • Replied in ACDSee Pro?
    My photo Library has been on ACDSee Pro for a long time - I tried the Lightroom Library but there were lots of basic things I couldn't do. A few months ago it seemed like the writing was on the ...
  • I am only interested in Lightroom for development of my RAW files. I like the Tools it provides. I like the look of the images I get. I find it's the best. I'm not interested in the Library ...
  • You would get on well with the President of my camera club. He is: 1. A big printing fan. He has an Epson A0 printer at home (33x46 inches) 2. A big panoramic/stiching fan (he has a Sony A7 r2 with ...
  • We saw this with the D300 and the D800, both game-changing cameras in their day (which I bought). For the first three months there was no stock anywhere, you had to order your camera then wait. ...
  • Sony has VR in the camera, moving the entire sensor. Nikon and Canon have VR only in certain lenses, moving a specific set of elements in the lens. Chasseur d'Images wording is careful. They're ...
  • Chasseur d'images is a French magazine that I trust. In their October 2017 issue p88 they test the stabilisation on some wide-angles to see if it's really useful: - Nikon 10-20 f4.5-5.6 DX = about ...
  • I can see I'm going to have to do some testing when I get the D850 (won't be before February 2018). The 24-70 f2.8 VR is starting to look like a good idea.. Anyway - we've demonstrated the ...
