  • Just call your home insurer. This kind of insurance falls down to your "property" and camera gear can be included into that. So you don't specifically need a new insurance. Just ask them if they ...
  • If you don't need the IQ, why would you pay for it? I have a lot of fun with 20-50$ vintage lenses and I really enjoy the pictures I take with them. Would I use more expensive lenses? Absolutely. ...
  • Anti-aliasing filter will cut the high frequency, thus eliminating the intensity wiggles caused by the interfering diffracted beam. These wiggles (diffraction pattern) analyzed from spatial to ...
  • Created discussion thread A good guide to macro?
    I have a Elmarit-R 60 mm f2.8 and I enjoy macro but I find its use difficult. I recently went to shot butterflies and I found that my relatives systematically picked every shots when the insect is ...
  • Oh I see and it's M42! What lens do you suggest? Any good reference on all the lens available worth to own?
  • This is so cool! Any guide to get that sort of effect with a "cheap" lens? I have the Sony A7 ii with Leica R adapter + M42.
  • Replied in Cocaine?
    I did a bunch of picture. At one point I was able to spot them all until I came across this. I thought the white under the nose was some bug but it turns out it's not? I was baffled to find out it ...
  • Replied in Ok
    The old Leica lens are still very good even by today's standard. Some model and version perform worse but overall the quality is there. I'm not sure if it is appropriate to compare lenses from a single
  • This won't really answer your question but might help you see how someone "get there". I have a couple of friends who participate in events through school (photography club). What happen there is ...
  • Replied in TRAVEL COST
    One thing is to buy the lens, it's another to use this lens. A 2600$ lens is as good as a lesser lens if you don't take it out. Personally, I use my camera when traveling & hiking. Turns out I have ...
  • Replied in Thanks all
    I'll grab my Loxia 21 to the Antelope Canyon ;)
  • Created discussion thread Loxia 50mm f2? Used "deal"
    I can get the lens used for ~600$. It looks in good condition. The question is: Do I need it? also, so many 50mm available and this one is not particularly fast... Thus, why even consider it? I ...
  • I was leaning toward getting the Photo pass. June is probably going to be quite busy. From what I could read, the first tour start at like 11am, even for photo pass? From what I could gather, the ...
  • When did you go (period of time)? It seems to be a recurrent comment about it and the experience seems to depend largely on that.
  • Hey all, So I'm heading mid-june to Grand Canyon. I'll be doing the South and North rim, Zion national park and Bryce Canyon. I have 10 days so plenty of time to visit something else too. Antelope ...
  • Just look used market and see what you can get. Once you've got specific options you can evaluate if it's worth keeping current lens or not. You failed to mention if the current lens were enough ...
  • Sorry it's a bit confusing since the answer I was commenting on was speaking of UV (protective filter) and not polarizer. I meant turn around = inclining the filter. Any optical stack's performance ...
  • 16-35 GM is a no brainer but I wouldn't take a second zoom. 90mm or 135mm would be a lot better in my opinion. When it comes to prime you have a lot of latitude in term of size, feature (macro) ...
  • What doesn't make sense is to compare the usefulness of something considering the pricing. Would it makes a difference to put a 2000$ filter on a 2000$ lens? Justifying the decision based on the ...
  • The interest for this lens is: (1) Swirly bokeh (2) Cheap To obtain the Swirly bokeh, you must shoot @ 2/2.8. At such wide aperture, having 13 instead of 8 blades will make little to ...
