  • Replied in What is IQ?
    Dexter's point is that such assets as Smart HDR, Deep Fusion, and Night Mode together elevate the IQ of smartphone photos. His assertion is well-reasoned and amply supported. It ought to be ...
  • Actually, the 1Dx, A9, and D5 might be better likened to pickup trucks. And pickup trucks have become both powerful and posh, evidenced by such hot-sellers as the King Ranch, Ram Laramie, and ...
  • That does look strange...and mismatched. Silver and chrome are passé. There was a time when chrome was very popular on cars. Now, people are doing chrome deletes.
  • Apple is very stingy with iCloud. I use Google Drive. Google Photos is also an option.
  • Incorrect. The word "intelligence" in AI falls well within the purview of intelligence, a concept which has many conceptions spanning the gamut from very broad to fairly narrow both within and ...
  • I just flew American Air. The person made it clear at check-in that lithium ion batteries were prohibited only in check-in luggage, not carryons.
  • Since medium format is anything larger than FF, the market is ripe for some entrant to release a sensor only incrementally larger than FF to capitalize on the "MF" moniker and rope in some stooges ...
  • This reminds me of something I saw the other day. These dog rescuers were trying to rescue a stray and its litter from underneath someone's porch before winter set in. But the more they crawled ...
  • Oh no, definitely not. The tortured artiste takes better photos. The settlers came to the New World in wooden boats. While no historian would dismiss their journey of many months, during which they ...
  • Good posts on the depth map! In a previous post sometime ago, someone commented that smart photographers know how to use their smartphones to take great shots. I guess by contrast, simple folk ...
  • Michael Jackson's skin condition made him require an umbrella in the sun. Likewise, some have a "condition" that makes them require a large, heavy ILC or very old DSLR. There is nothing necessarily ...
  • That's like Michael Jackson saying "I can't be bitter or jealous bc i have the umbrella in the rain, can they say the same about the umbrella in the sun?" Most people don't need to use a black ...
  • There was a time when computers the size of rooms and 32" CRT TVs weighting 200 lbs were the norm. We're in the midst of another such trend. Some people notice this and to "fight back," try to buy ...
  • You own one--with 11 fewer MP and 7 fewer FPS than the Sony A7R IV? My condolences. Uh huh. "My [child, pet, car] is the [bestest, fastest, smartest, prettiest]."
  • It's a real shame. The way things currently are, someone could create a 36.1x24.1mm sensor and call it medium format. When the very slow and sluggish GFX 50 first came out some years back, people ...
  • Replied in D5, D850
    Thanks for your firsthand feedback, Jim. Could you elaborate on what you mean by dynamics? I guess you're saying the A7RIV is more accurate with stationary subjects, but less accurate for moving ...
  • Calling the incrementally-larger-than-FF Fuji sensor medium-format does a tremendous--and I do mean TREMENDOUS--disservice to all real medium format cameras out there. Fuji's GFX 50 cameras have ...
  • Replied in Expectations
    That truism notwithstanding, is the D5's AF really that much better than the D850, regarded as the best all round camera by some people? I sure hope the A7R IV"s AF isn't worse than the 2-year old ...
  • Yes, pseudo. Should be pretty self-explanatory.
  • The correct answer, which is different from the wishful answer, is no. Here's what a reputable reviewer (Wired magazine) had to say about the RX100 VI: What's stopping small cameras is their simple ...
