  • This is the little guy. He is 15 months, and like yours, won't stand still for a second. I managed to take this whilst holding the lead and trying to manual focus. It was pot luck I managed to get ...
  • I tested your idea out today but with my mobile phone as a camera and it  worked. I'll be taking my camera next time. I just had to check what I might have stepped in each time. Thanks Steve.
  • I need to take my dog out twice a day so I go. I took my camera once to alleviate the boredom but it didn't work out well. I keep my dog on a lead during this epidemic but he was constantly ...
  • Replied in No problem
    That was an interesting comprehensive article. My understanding of it is it will work in much the same way as a CMOS sensor. The RGB filters stay, the only difference being the QDots replacing the ...

    Thanks guys for your contribution. I've realised the difficulty in capturing colour on a sensor. It seems it can only be done efficiently by reconstruction from RBG. bastibe brought to my attention ...

  • Why do sensors only record light intensity instead of each pixel just measuring the wavelength of light hitting it and sending that to the algorithm to form an image? This way, each pixel is ...
  • Why don't you keep the D5500 sell everything else and get Nikon lenses with the cash you make. In the UK the a6000 goes for about £300. What about the Canon sl3?
  • That's interesting. Because intuitively for me, I would think that if something remains the same size ie real butterfly and image on the sensor, then it is not magnified at all. I'm thinking in ...
  • So how does this work in practise? Say the lighthouse on the sensor is 25mm tall and 15mm wide. Do you need to get your laser out and measure the real lighthouse? Or say you have a butterfly whose ...
  • They are grainy. Is that the look you like and want to have in your pictures? Were these in low light with high ASA film? If you are looking for detail then I think you can't compete with digital. ...
  • Panasonic G9 start at 10:22 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TWj_RHDbp8
  • They are about the same price so I'd personally go for the X-t30 as it is better on paper. If a vari-angle LCD is important to you then the x-t200. I'm not a selfie person or a vlogger so the tilt ...
  • £80 for a quick sell for the body.
  • Be careful, lens glass has coatings so you should only use the recommended liquid which won't be anti-viral unless they contain a high level of alcohol or peroxide. The best solution is to leave ...
  • Thanks guys for your all responses. I think I get it now. The image on the sensor for a give FL will be the same - I've always known this, which is actually what made this confusing plus the use of ...
  • I know cropping reduces the FOV but in my samples, that part is self-explanatory but I also see a bigger image of the lighthouse. What is making the lighthouse bigger? And please don't say cropping.
  • Replied in APS-C "reach"
    But if I take a printed image from a FF sensor and cut it out to what a crop sensor sees then the lighthouse (in this case) would be the same size as it is just a cut out - a crop. Nothing will ...
  • One picture is from a crop sensor and the other from a FF sensor. It is the same lens at the same zoom, 300mm, yet it produces very different magnification. How is this? I thought that the only ...
  • This is the problem, they have you where they want you. A few stories like that and the market can most certainly crash. That's what I said. I know the danger, this was the whole point of your ...
