richard stone's recent activity

  • And this, I think, is an excellent post. Although I remain interested in the SDQ. Richard
  • I have seen this type of post before: Someone announces they are leaving. Always seems to me something like leaving a sad note, for the survivors, as someone plans self-destruction, looking for ...
  • Thanks for posting. Richard
  • Great images, thanks for posting. The camera and lenses do look big, together, but I think it's the price to be paid for the various benefits and features of the camera and system. Still, maybe ...
  • I think you're right, but that image of the SDQ with (seemingly) giant lens and hood is the opposite of discreet. I think one idea with "street photography" is to minimize the interference of the ...
  • I agree with this analysis by dr. noise, in regard to the ultimate number of pixels, because at some point the processing and perception of the image reach some limits. My thinking is more in line ...
  • I think a Sigma full frame (FF) camera would be grand, but.... I think it runs counter to the stated company philosophy of "affordable" camera equipment. I can't say I entirely agree with that ...
  • Replied in Strange idea?
    It is frustrating sometimes that the Sigma/Foveon images are better than Bayer at lower ISO settings, and seem not as good at higher ISO settings (if there is insufficient light). This is, as I ...
  • Thanks for posting these excellent images. For me they show two things, at least. The SDQ works great, along with the the lens, and you know what you're doing. Including the vignetting. Objections ...
  • It's a beautiful image, really. You do a great job with that camera. But then, I think it's much more you than the camera. Even though I know it's an excellent camera. Thanks for posting. Richard
  • Yes, I think you should do that too.
  • Thanks for posting these very enjoyable images. Richard
  • Laurence, if it's any consolation, I agree entitrely with your feelings about the "review." It is, in my view, pointless, snarky nonsense. And too clever. We have all seen some beautiful, exquisite ...
  • Every time I see a picture of the SDQ I think of some enterprising soul cutting off that SA mount snout and (1) Converting the remainder into an adapter to continue use the SA lenses and (2) ...
  • These "reviews" typically fall into two groups. Either the "reviewer" compares them to the standard high end shoot in the dark Canikon cameras (and wants to write a clever, scathing review) or ...
  • Very nice shots, particularly considering that the camera can't do it. My view on these matters is that the Sigma cameras can do a lot more than "most people" think, and the key is to hold the ...
  • Thanks for posting these good BW images. The bicycle image is very good, in my view. Kind of fun, a good thing. Richard
  • My post was something like this, to begin with it's concluding sentence: No justification of preferences is necessary or required, or even possible. My post specifically declined to criticize any ...
  • I have read a lot of the replies to the OP and to other posters on this thread. I don't think that printing pictures is the key, or the issue, although it may be for some. I think the key is much ...
  • Excellent images, thanks for sharing. Honestly, I do not see the pictures as "artistic," which to me indicates some color or other intervention, but rather as done with unusual lighting. And to ...
