  • Created discussion thread 80mm vs 110mm focus performance on 100s
    I know there are previous threads about these two lenses and comparisons on YouTube but I have conflicting reports on keeper rates. One YouTube video says he got more keepers with the 110mm ...
  • I came away from flickr because the community was too nice. At first people would say nice things about my photos and I would look at their photos and return the compliment often regardless of my ...

  • I dont think anyone has mentioned yet that the noise at higher ISO’s is not as good as other APSC options and f2.8 isnt going to help with that. If you only use it as a daylight camera as I do ...
  • Some venues are better than others. A recent wedding In the main reception I had two slaves set up around the speech tables so that was fine but the far end of the room was a stop darker (1/125 f2 ...
  • Very interesting - thank you
  • This problem is easily solved: Wife is already holding tele-adapter waiting for this moment. You hand her the lens ring which she gets to wear as a delightful bracelet after she has passed you the ...
  • Apologies I didn't explain that the 70-200mm application is not for the reception. I use my 70-200mm for church shots taken at a distance and wondered how the 110mm would handle that focal range ...
  • Replied in Math
    DOF is not an issue just light gathering. A little fall off is nice but don't need more than that. Assuming I don't need wider than 45mm (36mm) then I conclude it will have the benefits I need. ...
  • Created discussion thread Cropping instead of zoom
    I've recently been drawn to the Canon 28-70mm f2 and almost ditched my Sony gear in exchange for a Canon R6 + 28-70mm f2. The usage is for wedding receptions where I want the ambient light as high ...
  • OP reporting back. I have been practising with the articulating screen and it has got easier. I had to change to a thin strap and hook the strap under the hinge which helped a lot. I am still ...
  • Created discussion thread How long have you been waiting
    Having just ordered R6 + 28-70mm f2 the dealer said it will be 3 weeks possibly longer. What are expected wait times in UK? Is it possible to make a good guess?
  • I have an R6 on order together with a 28-70mm f2. I've tried a lot of gear and not much had wowed me as much as the canon 6d did several years ago for its gorgeous colours and rendering. I'm ...
  • Pretty sure this is not the case as GFX is unsuitable for a number of genres.
  • Replied in Make a choice
    Correct but most people don’t realise I am taking photos when shooting from the hip. As soon as I raise my camera to my eye they stop what they are doing and look at me and the moment is gone.
  • Replied in Make a choice
    Thank you for your replies. I should have said that I do shoot from the hip for candids so holding the camera under the lens does not work for me. I do have a working solution with the x-pro3 + ...
  • Created discussion thread Upgrading x-t4 to x-t3
    I did my first wedding with the x-t4 yesterday thinking that I would get used to the articulating screen but didn’t realise that when flipped out it would get in the way of holding the camera. I ...
  • Thank you for the suggestions. I am happy with C1 and glad to be rid of LR so do not want to go back down that road. Compressing TIFFs is worth a look but depends on performance penalties. I agree ...
  • Created discussion thread Large file workflow for photoshop
    When processing GFX100S compressed raws, I start off in Capture One and increasingly want to use Photoshop which involves exporting to an uncompressed TIF file. After a few layers of adjustments, ...
  • So I reinstalled Epson printer drivers and restarted the Mac but the problem was not resolved. Next I tried printing from Capture One and the problem went away!!! I did not expect that. I've poured ...
