  • That is, of course, very subjective. I agree that the M3 lasts longer than the M, and 2 batteries are fine most times. But 2 is not enough for a full day's shooting for me. However, I haven't had a ...
  • Don't know what is wrong with your copies, but mine performs fantastically. As do the several copies of users of my acquaintance.
  • Cannot see why a Surface Pro, or equivalent, with Capture one would not be a superior arrangement to either an iPad or a laptop

  • The bit about APS-C seeming more real, that does not make complete sense. APS-C gathers less light and will have less DOF control with a given lens. The "look" of particular sensors can vary, but ...
  • Of course it is. There were many people who did not wish to pay the full, stand-alone price, but are willing to pay the monthly fee. It depends upon how you look at it. It is less expensive in the ...
  • In my experience, ACR is much more flexible than the manufacturer's own software. However, I began using DXO when I had to upgrade to Adobe Cloud to receive support for my M3. I find it very ...
  • The only consistent logic or standard a gallery uses is what they think will sell. lilBuddha wrote: This is confusing. If processing is somehow "wrong," you imply there is something that is ...
  • To me, intent and presentation are the main factor, not method, intensity or ubiquity. Say you shoot a landscape. You use a wide angle to increase drama. Then add contrast, skew the colour and ...
  • First, this is not as accurate as you think. Jerry Uelsmann images Second, computer processing can go very far, but this does not mean it must. Third, it is for the maker of the image and her/his ...
  • If by universal standards you mean Rule of Thirds, balancing elements, depth and so on, they are guidelines to assist in creating an interesting image. Here is a good article explaining the whys of ...
  • There are some scenes which cannot be captured as a human mind sees them without manipulating the image. HDR is one of the methods which can be used to more accurately represent a "natural" scene. ...
  • This analogy implies cheating. Post processing, whether it be in a dark room or on the computer, is not cheating. Unless one is breaking the rules of the contest/agency/genre, there is no cheating. ...
  • I rather puzzled what he is on about. There is no lack of integrity in colour adjustment unless one says or implies one has not done so. Ignorance of the process by a viewer does not confer lack ...
  • Kinda thought this is what it is: a fair revue. One based on use, but it seemed fairly objective.
  • No. It is done because it is objective . Field use is subjective. What qualifies as good or better in regards to a criterion such as bokeh is a personal preference. P
  • I think this needs to be broken down. First, capturing the moment is creation. Full stop. Capture and present is not more or less valid in itself. One's process should be about capturing the image ...
  • I think this is the future, though. The line between vid and still is blurring and soon the tech will catch up so there will be little to no compromise at reasonable prices.
  • Replied in Hard to say
    Depends on what you do. I've a friend who is an event photographer. He'll take any extra light he can get.
  • Replied in Hard to say
    Then you had a bad or damaged copy. The 17-40 is an excellent lens.* It is my landscape lens for my 5D and has performed impeccably. The original 16-35 was, other than max aperture, an inferior ...
  • Ok, the colours "look" produced by digital is more about settings and post processing, than a particular camera. Not to say each brand/model does not have its own default characteristics, but that ...
