  • Agree with this.  I would buy Fuji over Sony is apsc is in the menu. FF is where it is at with Sony .
  • Hate to break it to you, a lot of the quality is actually due to the gear. I would say 60% of the picture quality is due to the gear, about 10% is due to the location, and about 5% is luck. The ...
  • This FF has worse DR than m4/3? I would be shocked if true.

  • Not sure what got lost in translation here. Did anyone argue that cameras cost more now than they did in the past in absolute terms? Not sure what point you are trying to make, with a statement ...
  • Eyeglasses are customize for both the frame as well as for the prescription. The frame needs to be further adjusted to the fit the wearer. They are also traditionally sold in a retail shop having ...
  • This may be a little difficult to comprehend for some people. Film and digital cameras are indeed different product categories and not directly comparable. Film cameras were inherently mechanical ...
  • You are comparing products in two vastly different categories.
  • Some cars models have moved up market over the years. In the case of Civic, it used to be the bottom of the barrel for Honda, now it's kind of a medium-low end option, with some upper end ...
  • Your analysis is flawed and misleading. Cameras today are electronics and not mechanical products like cars. Prices for electronics generally plummet over time unless there is a huge demand and ...
  • Except today's cell phones can do a million things that DSLRs can't, and there are a lot more that goes into a smart phone than a mere camera.  You are getting way more for your money with a ...
  • Commented on photo Oculus in the Not Rectilinear, But Not Looking Unnatural challenge

    I don't mean to be condescending, I walk thru there for work almost everyday, and to me this is a very plain vanilla, very boring snapshot. In fact I know exactly where you stood when taking this...

  • Extremely shallow DOF is often extremely overrated. I don't shoot FF or m43 but APSC, but even with APSC at f1.4 or f1.8, the DOF is often too shallow. Unless the subject is looking dead straight ...
  • Replied in What ?!?!
    In vast majority of situations, the pictures from a smartphone is comparable with those from ILC. If you can't take good pictures with a smartphone, you are a lousy photographer. This is a very ...
  • Try lynda.com, they have 30 day free trial
  • I guess you are doing batch processing wrong. I process RAW based on the shots I really care about, then sync settings to the ones that are not the best shots, but I nevertheless wants to keep. I ...
  • That would depend on how much time on spends in Yosemite.
  • Why would you take 800 pictures and not spend the time to properly look at them? "Processing" mostly means simply looking at photos to decide if each is a keeper. No one can take 800 pictures and ...
  • I think this product is too niche to be successful, but it may offer a glimpse of what the camera will become in the future. I don't know who exactly it will evolve, but what's certain is the...

  • I can order from Henry's and ship to USA to avoid sales tax right?
  • Created discussion thread Buy camera in Canada?
    I was just browsing the web when I noticed something interesting. The Oly EM5II is going for $899 CAD in Canada and also $899 USD in the US. http://www.getolympus.com/ca/en/e-m5-mark-ii.html http:/ ...
