  • I don't have an M10. I do have an M and an M3 and both get significantly more shots than Canon state. And the weight of each battery is less than a 5D battery and waaay less than a 1D. Still an ...

    As I understand it, the equivalent spot on the sensor at any given aperture is going to be larger with a larger sensor. Therefore more light, less noise. The percentage of the sensor covered might ...
  • All screens will suffer from glare, whether this is a problem depends on you and what you shoot. A viewfinder, optical of electronic, will reduce glare and can help you ignore surrounding distractions.
  • There is a site https://365project.org/ that is designed around shooting Something everyday. The idea is to eliminate excuses and push your self to expand your boundaries.
  • I agree that one shouldn't begin with the goal of fixing mistakes later. Taking the best possible image should always be the goal. But image editing software is so much more than "fixing" an image. ...
  • Depends on the subject. Most times I shoot, look at the result, then adjust. Personally, I use the spot meter if I think the sensor cannot handle the entire scene and I am not going to use ...

    Seems I missed the qualifying follow up in your post, and for that, I apologise. In our cross-posted reply to MikeM58 latest question, we are generally on the same page regarding this.

    There are not any rules for this. For most of the existence of photography, there were no modes to fall back on. That said, they can certainly take away the burden of learning everything all at ...
  • Lightroom is an image management software with some powerful, but basic image adjustments. It was designed primarily for photographers who need to process large numbers of images at a time, such ...

    Oops, confused two different threads I was commenting on. The class taker was on another, apologies for implying any class here. The comments I made, though, did apply to the people I quoted, You ...

    Absolute terms are rarely absolutely accurate. A casual shooter,¹ who isn't going to take the time to systematically learn the controls, may not benefit from manual control. But someone who is ...
  • It is a terrific lens, comparable to the Canon 17-40 f/4L.
  • The most important feature for a class is full manual. If you are going to learn, being able to control everything is pretty important. High usable, ISO and decent dynamic range are nice as well. ...
  • I agree that their marketing strategy was off. But as other Canon consumer models sold quite well with only the kit zoom as an option, it might be another part of the strategy that was off Yes, but ...
  • You do give up a significant feature. Touch to drag focus. When using the EVF on the M5, you can use the screen as a touch pad to drag the focus point. The screen on the M6 flips up, the M5 flips ...
  • I don't think so. The SL1 is marketed to people who are going to likely want a single lens solution for general photography, which would be a zoom. People wanting a single, wide prime would be ...

    Apples to apples, size rules. All other things being equal (technology level, software, etc.) bigger [i]is[/i] better. The instances where a smaller sensor out performs a larger is where the technology
  • With the caveat of not perfectly well with all combinations. Still not a bad option.

    I have a Sony RX100. Terrific outdoor images. Weaker compared to my APS-C and Full Frame, but not a crappy camera.
  • An SL1 isn't going to be smaller. How? With an M, you have access to all the EF-S,  EF and EF-M. The SL1, only the first two. I'm still not sure what it is. The SL1 has an optical viewfinder, ...
