  • It's easier to make a large lens that's sharp across the frame. If lenses generally perform better in the center, you simply over-engineer the lens for a larger imaging circle and et voila - the ...
  • This is the correct answer. It's basically the inverse of the F Number calculation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F-number F Number = Focal Length / Entrance Pupil Basic algebra then gives you ...
  • I've thought about whether or not there is a "medium format look" and I've decided - through logical deduction - that there is not. Try to poke holes in my argument. The typical argument is that ...
  • New sig!
  • Earlier in this thread.... https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/64240331
  • That is indeed impressive. No wonder Pentax has so many loyal fans.
  • I like two dials, I think it's less cumbersome than 3. I quite like Nikon's 2 dials + some buttons. Aperture - front dial. Shutter speed - rear dial. ISO? Button + Dial. WB? Button + Dial. Exposure ...
  • Proof?
  • I'm planning on opening a "diagonal landscape photography" gallery - based on lens reviews, they're all the rage these days.
  • Agree, except I got the original Ricoh GR Digital 1, I think circa 2006, it's the same size as the GR3 and produces "crappy" JPGs ("looks like Tri-X"). But we're talking about current cameras. The ...
  • Nice! I've considered doing similar / buying from MaxMax.  How would you rate the IQ/tonality bump from a CFA camera? I ultimately decided against it as I could get similar from a Foveon and the ...
  • It's a great camera. I have no regrets in buying it. Also the Fuji X-Pro / X100 series. Huh, I guess I consider "rangefinder form factor" to be fun. And as others have pointed out, the Pen-F JPG ...
  • The Nikon D7000. I shot most of my portfolio with it. With the 35mm f/1.8G lens. I shot my friends weddings with it. I eventually sold it to force myself to use something else to change my style (I ...
  • When I was young and careless, I picked up my camera backpack without realizing it was still open - CRASH a heavy lens hit the concrete. The filter cracked, not the front element. BUT the shards of ...
  • Anything to get the shot am I right? People do risky thing, they probably have no idea how risky they're being since they live most of their lives online. https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/woman-s ...
  • Eh, I don't think anything in this world is permanent. Everything degrades over time. What things have is an expected failure rate. At least with DVD's you can burn multiple copies. If you're ...
  • As one Foveonista to another, I totally understand. It's a different beast. Not necessarily better or worse - just different.
  • Yeah - I've heard nothing but good things about Backblaze. I'll probably sign up myself actually... Curious how it works with external drives - if I have one drive that's always plugged in and a ...
  • Replied in Google Trends
    It looks like tent season has peaked - sell now or you'll be stuck with a tent come fall and nobody will buy it then. And cameras are rebounding a bit after an April low. https://trends.google.com/ ...
  • Replied in Nope
    There are some recordings that are done with just a binaural or x-y coincidence mic or similar. One of the early recordings to use this that I'm aware of is the Trinity Sessions by the Cowboy ...
