  • Replied in NO !
    I have never said this woud be a sudden halt.. But at one time, there is good chance that the aps-c owners will be tempted by the entry level cameras FF. Sony, Nikon and Canon know perfectly this ...
  • Replied in NO !
    I am convinced that camera makers will invest less and lesss in aps-c, the target fromat now is FF. They develop now low end FF cameras which can attract  current aps-c camera owners. Same for ...
  • So in very good light for a static scene you care about shutter speed ! So imagine you shoot at 1/1000s well above the necessary shutter speed  at ISO100 , every time the lighting changes a bit or ...
  • Replied in Wrong analysis
    You know better than me about my own experience... Otherwise it woud clip highlights, so....  But maybe you prefer to guarantee to over-expose the shot instead  ?? I understand that other modes can ...
  • Replied in Wrong analysis
    Stop with your certitudes please. Besides, you make a wrong analysis which tends to show that your experience with auto-iso is limited (I use your nice and pedantic language) Using aperture ...
  • If only we could avoid these over-used and meaningless expressions in these forum like "true" photographers, real cameras etc... Maybe you know what PHOTOGRAPHY (in uppercase as you wrote)  is. ...
  • Replied in A bit pedantic..
    No need to talk about my experience and suggests anything about it, you simply do not know !. So let me suggest that you have certainly a limited experience of aperture priority + auto-iso and that ...
  • So you have to do it... waste of time. You have control over the minimum shutter speed, why do you want to have control over the shutter speed ? In some rare scenarios, certainly but in the vast ...
  • so how do you set the shutter speed on very good light ??? You switch mode ? I absolutely do not need to. What if you are in a case where you are in a situation "in between", what mode do you choose ?
  • So far, I have not found any brand which does a good job to be honest... I would simply want to be able to change the minimum shutter speed the same way as I change the shutter speed. I am in fact ...
  • Just set 1/800s as the minimum shutter speed ! You said exactly what is required. You may need at least 1/800s, but you don't need 1/800s. The difference with manual + auto_iso is that if the ...
  • My advice: Shoot aperture priority + auto-iso, this is simply unbeatable imho. Forcing a given shutter speed does not really make sense, in most cases you want to set a minimum shutter speed.
  • You can not replace fill flash.. It reduces the contrast by brightening the shadows. You can do HDR and brighten the dark areas but this is not the same... This is not accurate, you will brighten ...
  • By the way, the flash would have helped (as a fill flash) !!! Typical use case for using fill flash. With auto-iso, not sure how your camera would have behaved, it depends on cameras. I prefer to ...
  • Replied in Looks normal
    EC -3 does not necessarily mean that your photo is like an ISO 40000 image. You could have used spot metering for instance, it depends how the camera metered the scene. No need also to consider how ...
  • Replied in Focusing
    No need to apologise, not your fault. Just ignore the unnecessary heat discussion and keep the information that you find usefull in your case. My interpretation of your post is that you have ...
  • Replied in Focusing
    Looking at your picture i would say that 1/1000s would give a sharp picture, 1/1500s very sharp and 1/2000s tack sharp That is my guess.
  • I am just saying that it is very very far from being true, nothing else. Nonsense means that it makes no sense (sorry to be basic), which is the case !. Do you really think that the op should use a ...
  • Nonsense. Sorry, I use this term because it is very far from the truth. Do we really need a dof calculator ? The hyperfocal distance is 7.6 meters, meaning you can have everything sharp from 3.8 ...
  • Replied in Focusing
    It certainly did not move 50mm... I think the op has over-estimated the speed. I would say 1/2000s to have a really tack sharp image, when you pixel peep there is not much motion blur, considering ...
