  • Thank you. The day was supposed to be overcast, good for colors, but then every last cloud mysteriously disappeared under a hot sun, bad due to harsh shadows and blown highlights. I set the camera ...
  • Created discussion thread Centaurea Montana with NX 60mm Macro
    With my NX1 and NX 16-50mm f/2.0-2.8 S, I covered the opening day of Teatown's annual PlantFest fund raiser this passed weekend. But I did switch to the 60mm Macro for a portrait of this Centaurea ...
  • Thank you for proving you are a troll. Now we're done.
  • Since you have the knowledge to ask these questions, the answer should be obvious. And even though the lack of respect in your statements "Is it?" and "Oh sure" makes you sound like a troll ...
  • You are obviously not a teacher who deals with these issues on a regular basis. And you obviously have a closed mind and just keep fighting a possibility, yet do not offer any possibilities of ...
  • Just keep in mind that the blue lens element is not a precise placement, but is indicative only that a lens is in the path of the photons. Except of course if the lens only has a single element, ...
  • "Impossible" is a very disturbing word to hear from someone who is practicing a visual art. I do have another exercise I do in class to allow even beginners to visualize the view with longer and ...
  • Again, close but not entirely true, and I've discussed this earlier. The focal length of a lens is generally determined at two focal distances, MFD and Infinity. I have a 400mm Canon lens that has ...
  • You said before that there would have to be standards. Your arguments also seem to imply that Angle of View would replace focal lengths. To the first statement, I agree and state ONCE AGAIN that ...
  • I'm going to be an optimist and say that since Canon is even making a firmware update on this camera, it is encouraging and hopefully there will be others.
  • Replied in Wrong
    Just wanted to jump in with a quick clarification. The focal length of a photographic lens design (which may not be true of other lens designs) is based on 2 of the twelve cardinal points of lens ...
  • AGAIN, reading my original statement makes it very simple: "the manufacturers also inscribe the angles of coverage FOR THE FORMAT the lens was designed". This effects the vastly greatest number of ...
  • This is the PERCEPTION, but to say that angle of view changes with sensor size is misleading. Please re-read my post. A given focal length ALWAYS projects the same angle of view in the optical ...
  • Replied in Field of View
    It's good to hear that another long time photographer who teaches sees the benefit as well. I can concur that explaining focal lengths and crop factors does take a lot of time when you have a ...
  • Canon does indeed put the actual focal length on all its lenses. No matter what format a lens is used to cover, whether FF, APS-C, 1", 1/2.3, etc., the focal length of a lens is ALWAYS the ...
  • Replied in Lightning!
    Beautifully captured. Experiencing the wonderful work of others is inspiring.
  • Very true for modern cameras, and I take your point. My point however is that practice still makes perfect. When I first tried BIFs with the M5/100-400L, my results were very disappointing, if not ...
  • While I can agree somewhat with both of you that the M5 with adapted long glass is not the very best answer for an airshow or birds in flight, I think you are both selling the camera short. OK, in ...
  • Not at an airshow, but while I was recently looking up to catch hawks or such in flight with my M5 and original 100-400mm L, it was very easy with only one try within the opening in the trees to ...
  • I use my EF-L lenses on my M5 and have never had to shut off the camera when switching back and forth between AF and MF. I just move the EF lens switch to MF and the focusing aids (red for me) ...
