  • ozturert: Thanks. I gave it a try on my Galaxy S7. Modifying the display mode, turning on the blue filter and adjusting the luminosity brought it much closer to my IPS display and the Surface.

  • Does it have a screen that gives you a neutral image that you can rely on ready for publication (like the iPad and the Microsoft Surface)? I checked out the current SAMSUNG Windows Tablets this...

  • Replied in Buy Full frame
    Up till recently I shot Full Frame when I was at home but when I travelled I took an APS-C body with excellent lenses due to the smaller size and lesser weight. With APS-C I was getting a result ...
  • I don't need two bodies. The 24-120 is wonderfully versatile - I have done entire all-day weddings with just the one lens. I can zoom in close enough to pick out a bit of detail which is just ...
  • I think that the 24-85 G VR is a great lens. I wish I hadn't sold mine, but I needed longer reach (24-120). Over the years I have accumulated four walkaround zooms: - 28-300 f3.5-3.6 VR. I just ...
  • My requirements: 1. I need to keep the finished product (JPG, MP4..) online 2. I need to keep the camera output (RAW) forever but it doesn't have to be online 3. I need to use ACDSee to manage my ...
  • For years I've been trying to imitate the work of one of my Art Nude teachers. He's written two books on the subject where he explains precisely how he did it. Most of the images in the books were ...
  • Dance is FF in Studio. I Don't think I could get the same result with APS-C Black Studio is FF except the ones are of a red-headed girl who is seen sitting under the lights in the last-but one ...
  • Well if a camera is a camera is a camera we might as well do everything on a smartphone. I'm sure you have a smartphone. Compare an image done at base ISO with the same image done with your MFT ...
  • I do a lot of Art nude photography, some of it in studio. I know a lot of people who do the same. Everybody is using FF apart from a few beginners who are using APS-C. There was one new arrival ...
  • When I use my best camera I take a full kit with the hardware most adapted to the subject. This usually means multiple lenses, a bit flash, perhaps even a tripod. This means 5-8 kilos of gear, a ...
  • Thinking back a long way : - I used to shoot RAW on a 1/1.7 sensor (Canon S90) and I think it gave me less than 1 stop of latitude Over- and Under- exposure. - On the 1-inch sensor in the RX100 ...
  • Good. I need the RX100 (or similar) for little reportages in low light, like in the evening when I've finished shooting and I go out to explore a city. The RX100 mk6 did not please me at all.

  • I don't do many pictures of flowers and when I do it tends to be pretty gaudy. Your pictures are often subtle and delicate and it's the sort of thing I would expect full-frame to render well. I ...
  • I suggest that you spend a few months developing RAW files from Full Frame and from other formats (APS-C and 1-inch in my case). After a while your eye gets to recognise the "look" of different ...
  • The Nikon 24-85 f3.5-4.5 (non VR version from 2002) is slightly larger than a 50mm. Performance is OK: https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Nikon/Nikon-AF-S-Zoom-Nikkor-24-85mm-F35-45G-IF-ED-mounted-on-N ...
  • Replied in Look don't think
    When I'm taking pictures I just look. If the image looks right then I do a shot. Then maybe I make a change, recompose a little and when it looks right I do another one. It doesn't bother me to do ...
  • I leave lens stabilisation off when not actually using a lens to make it more robust when in transport (tip from Nikon technician). When I'm actually shooting I leave it on almost all the time. ...
  • For years I've been shooting with FF and APS-C DSLR's which have the SAME autofocus module i.e. the image area covered in the APS-C DSLR is much bigger, reaching almost to the corner of the image. ...
  • Replied in Normal
    This has been happening to me right back to the days of film. Often I'm covering an event in my village for the web site/newsletter with my usual gear including big cobra flash. The village ...
