  • I support this. To that end I also support them in tools. I absolutely cannot stand it when you go to fix something or take it apart etc and it uses blasted "Allen" screws and you have no drivers...

  • Sheeple I swear. Apple could come out with an iToilet this year and people would swear that Apple invented the commode and that in 2020 and prior we were all using outhouses.

  • Any reason to consider this if you were considering the 50mm 1.8S? It's smaller and less expensive, but I would assume less excellent optically?

  • Created discussion thread Got A J1 Kit For $50, Questions
    About 3 days ago I got a white J1 10-30 kit for $50, it even included a good case and an ML-L3 remote. I don't need it as I have a Z50 and Sony RX100 III, but my wife likes using real cameras yet ...
  • I just returned from a vacation in the Ozarks with its beautiful scenery and my Z50 kit in tow. I don't know that I could ever use the ZFC in the same situation, the hand grip on the Z50 is...

  • Yes, the eye AF feature does work fine with the FTZ mounted 50mm 1.8G, but the seller of the S version said its AF was faster, as did reviews, and that was indeed very much true.
  • I spotted a Nikon 50mm 1.8 S last week for $420 on Fred Miranda. I finally went for it. I've used the 50mm 1.8G on my DSLRs before and was using it on my Nikon Z50 with the FTZ, but that was a ...
  • For me, mirrorless vs DSLR, mirrorless wins because of AF coverage. With portraits, I got tired of so many shots being out of focus because the subject's eye was somewhere other than dead center....

  • If you're too lazy to "lug" around a Sony RX100, you have no business calling yourself a photographer. Real photographers use real cameras. Lazy pretenders use iPhony cameras.

  • I had a Nikon Z50 since last September but this interests me. Prior to the Z50 I had the EM10 II and liked it, other than it having the older sensor. A previous Nikon DSLR shooter I got the Z50 but...

  • Recently I posted that I was having trouble getting the eyes in focus with portraits using my Z50 and FTZ adapted 50mm 1.8G. The consensus is that it's because I was using shutter speeds around ...
  • I have had a Z50 since last September, and pretty much right away I got the FTZ adapter for using the 50mm 1.8G for portraits of my kids. Getting the Z50 was something I really was looking forward ...
  • Maybe they did, I don't know nor care. As for me, I see it as a "dumbing down for the masses," all those people who used to say "my Kodak can do video, why can't a Nikon or Canon DSLR that costs so...

  • I'm a person who understands what photography is and doesn't care to see it corrupted and mocked. Having photographers turn into YouTube clip creators is a mockery to me. It is disrespectful to...

  • The point is I don't EXPECT my plumber to do electrical work. If he does plumbing only and I have to hire an electrician for electrical work, I accept that. I liked it better when it was the same...

  • Maybe, but still, what is with people demanding that such a camera also can record video and do it well? Why can't it be "I'm a photographer (or videographer), period" vs your being expected to do...

  • Clients now demand it when they used to understand the concept of someone being something of a specialist in one vs the other. It makes me glad I do this as a hobby. Buttons being hard mapped to...

  • The question is, do they have video only cameras? If so, why don't they have photos only cameras? I don't mind video cameras existing, but I'm tired of video being crammed down my throat when I'm...

  • The thing to me is this: if they can make a camera that is basically video-only, why don't they also make a camera that is basically stills-only? To me that's wrong. Plenty of people don't care for...

  • It's not legal advice, but in my opinion people are too touchy about this sort of thing anymore and I find it ridiculous. When I first got digital cameras in 2003 from that time until about 2010 ...
