munro harrap's recent activity

  • I do not think this is a competitive thing: Canon/Nikon etc, but a groove thang! I got into serious digital photography with the Canon 1Ds, and because I did and it was my first FF love, replaced...

  • Somebody needs to help me here, because, as elsewhere the samples are too small to evaluate and my phone at this size does equally well with the same subjects, and 2: because WHY should anyone...

  • No, it was the best early HD video machine: its great for video, but I bought one for stills new at vast expense, and had to return it because its low-contrast detail resolution is non-existant....

  • Yes, I agree with TORN's comments below. I can make ANY machines pictures look dreadful too!

  • And an 85mm f1.8 or f1.4 gives you a 127.5 mm 15+MP image on a D8xxx series machine, useful, as in a concert or theatre you are often close enough to be able to use both FF and APs-C crops

  • It was a very expensive camera, whose autofocus was really not so good, but ideal for static subjects with IQ measured better than the M8. Leica. Read the Dpreview review. For Landscape etc and...

  • Yes, of course, the high iso performance of the D3 IS much better than the 1Ds MkII, but until you go above 400 ISO the Canon is superior, if you care about the photographic quality and the image...

  • I did not buy a D3, because I could not understand how anyone would want a 12MP camera rather than a 16.7MP Canon 1Ds MkII, it did not figure! There was this machine that had been there four years...

  • Like they tell you, once you upload to Flickr, all legal liabilities remain YOURS, but once onsite ALL POSSIBLE LEGAL USE becomes theirs. Its quite clear, it is not legalese at all, so LEAVE ...
  • The OM-1 N.B works without its meter, so with a handheld meter you are OK. I just dont use mine, or indeed ANY film camera, but IF I did in compacts the best I can remember was the coupled...

  • I said "properly", your interpretation is therefore bizarre

  • What on earth are you bothering with me for then?

  • Suppose you aim to get one you wont be unhappy with. The LX100 would be ok but its lens is not sharp outside of the central area> check out the review samples on a 2560x1440 or better monitor , or ...
  • FIlm is still best as the images are verifiable It is always necessary when possible to show a sufficient amount of the scene, the location, to give some idea of scale. Pre-Internet days I have ...
  • Of course, you are using the lowest ISO that gives the highest dynamic range noiselessly? This interior scene should be easily encompassed by the DR of ANY modern machine if used properly rather...

  • You have issues obviously, but I shall do what I can to help. First you need to find out how much overexposure there is through the window relative to MID-TONES inside, where you are with your...

  • You are spolit for choice with Optics Pro, but first ensure YOUR colour vision is OK! Get your sight tested and checked, as I have inaccurate colour vision occasionally (it varies!) , and get my ...
  • I can remember being unable, in-store try-out time, to cope with the viewfinder and the ergonomics, but how wrong I was, when years later I bought one to attempt sharp well-resolved close-ups of...

  • Nobody uses cameras this way. Nobody exposes for the highlights in dark rooms, not unless you want a mess like this!! IF there is one rule digital commands over film it is NEVER underexpose. Stand...

  • Meetings with "aliens" as with "avatars" can now occur only when you have no camera with you at all. These beings certainly are not going to provide you with such primitive technology, having gone ...
