  • Nope. The discourse you're describing is not "a thing" or a trend or anything worth concerning one's self about. In the big broad wonderful world of imaging that works in our world, there is not ...
  • Interesting thoughts. But I personally don't see it. I think Samsung already vanquished Sony and, frankly, Japan, long ago in all the markets it wanted--smartphones, computing, imaging, almost ...
  • This is a good argument. Moderate, careful, optimistic. But . . . . My spidey senses say Nikon is actually, truly, in big trouble--bigger trouble, maybe, than a "proud" company can realize in time ...
  • Huh, 2/3 of the way down on the imagen-ai.com front page, they list every Lightroom Classic parameter the AI supports, including:

    "COLORS: all colors hue; saturation; luminance"

    However, there...

  • . . . is a flexible, durable, refined, professional-grade 51MP system body, used the world over by demanding artists, creatives, and journalists across every genre of our profession, a "compromise ...
  • Replied in ^ This.
    Yeah, testing for lens sharpness hand-held with 1/6 sec shutter? It's completely ridiculous. I'm surprised the OP's 15/1.7 result is as good as it is. (On the other hand: a good show for the kit ...
  • Reading your activities, I couldn't help but imagine Sony had you in mind when they designed the full-frame A7C . Do you live in the states? Rent an A7C for a week, for $114 from lensrentals.com an ...
  • Personally, I try to avoid thinking about what's "natural" in photography. Because nothing is. And I try to avoid thinking about the photographic act as one of "reproduction" rather than just ...
  • Starting with why "your best bet" is a camera body you'd written off only two weeks ago as "an act of desperation on Nikon's part," a technological instance of "slapping lipstick on a pig." At the ...
  • Nah. It all depends on who / what artists or media you're following, of course. From where I sit, the photography making the biggest waves right now is produced to emphasize authenticity. Over the ...
  • Couple of thoughts on your argument: 1/ Adapters Canon produces now don't evaporate into thin air. They don't have an expiry date or a sell-by date. If Canon pumps millions of EF-to-RF adapters ...
  • Replied in On Pretensions
    You don't like hearing about DPP's 20-year camera support continuity when expressing concern about discontinuity in future software support for DSLRs? You don't like hearing about Canon's many, ...
  • No. Never. (OK, fine: I don't mean "never" in terms of the heat-death of the Universe; but does "as-long-as-Canon-manufactures-cameras" satisfy?) Friend, DPP has already been supporting RAW files ...
  • It means nothing. It presents no complication whatsoever to your photographic endeavors. Let's say you decide one day in the near or distant future that you that want an EF lens you don't already ...
  • In fact, it's not just used; I think Sony's success and hot marketing pressure really pushes even the new gear market around for the better.

    Remember last summer when one could get a brand-new...

  • Huh.

    My feeling: if you shoot anything other than Sony and you're looking to acquire some new-to-you hardware for that other system, the Sony fanbase is a gift that keeps on giving.

    Consider what...

  • I think you just nailed the explanation, frankly. It seems pretty straightforward (to me, anyway) that the inherent troubles of the OP's slow shutter speeds were being at least somewhat masked by ...
  • And so, if Nikon had simply called whatever's in the Z[x]ii bodies a "next generation multi-core Expeed 7 processing platform with TWICE the power of the previous generation!" you would be singing ...
  • Replied in Stop.
    ? Come on, man. What is this story you're peddling? Panasonic and Olympus introduced mirrorless system cameras a dozen years ago. The Sony A7 series is 8 years old! Mirrorless digital system ...
  • Maybe. I'll point you to something you wrote, with me adding the bolds: And, I'll just ask you if you really believe it's a good idea to spend $2600 on a tool you find "frustrating" to use. It's ...
