  • If all you claim were true, then (1) you either need to update your gear or your gear list (2) you might want to consider investing in Sony if you're ...
  • If you want to invest in some Pentax gear, I think you're okay. By contrast, I'd stay far away from investing in a local camera store. Just too hard to compete with online sales. I don't ...
  • Agree; I also seem to see much more Sony gear about than a 13% market share would lead me to expect. But personal experience may be mostly sampling noise. What I saw on my last trip (western ...
  • I've never owned or extensively used any dSLR other than Pentax, so can't say I 'know' that their gear suits me best. But generally Pentax's reviewed strengths (WR, IQ, low-light performance, OVF, ...
  • Concur with KCook--cameras are tools, so good advice depends on what tools you currently have, and where you feel like they're not fulfilling your needs. What lenses do you have with your 550D? Is ...
  • Those are gorgeous. The statue has been described as 'hideous,' but I thought it was amazing. Your shots do show it off nicely. Actually I always shoot RAW+, with the raws going to one card and the ...
  • thank you. On color, mine are both OOC jpgs, and if you check the exifs you'll see that i was shooting at -1EV. For use I'd go back to the raws, probably warm up the color balance a bit, maybe ...
  • As does the question "Why do I experience helicopter blades in flight as blurred?" We 'see' helicopter blades as blurred because we know they're helicopter blades--not just an indistinct, ...
  • Extrememly bad translation--I suspect that logic is not your first language. But still, that depends--what are the circumstances, financial status, and transportation needs of the prospective ...
  • SO an EVF is objectively better than an OVF, as long as we don't consider the irrelevant detail of our actual picture-taking? LOL--talk about mindless prejudice. Which is better, a pool cue or an ...
  • Not a question of being unaware, just a question of reading your list and not seeing anything I'm salivating over. For example, I don't do video--if that were somewthing I wanted, I'd be looking ...
  • I've never experienced that. Ever, and I've used my cameras in some very dark churches and museums. If one does a lot of subject-isolating flower and bugs close-ups or art portrait work where ...
  • I'm arguing a point I understand to be subjective. For the type of shooting I do, what an EVF adds adds little I value; what it removes bothers me a lot. It's as simple as that. But perhaps more to ...
  • Unfortunately, a question based on faulty premises isn't improved by being interesting. It's still based on faulty premises. Knowing that the question is inherently faulty should make it less ...
  • At the lowest level, there is no shutter speed--different photoreceptor cells can fire at different rates, are subject to pulse fatigue, are not globally synchronized, etc. At that level, the ...
  • This study and the article linked by TacticDesigns demonstrate how slight differences in the question being asked, and the experimental protocol(s) being used, can change the answer we get. The ...
  • At some point in the future, that might become true. As of yet, however, they seem to offer rather meager rewards for giving up the immediacy of an OFV. Your own example (looking at the sun ...
  • Replied in Curious
    In that case it will never come, because perfection is unattainable. I remember back to the 70's when perfect audio gear was the rage, and people discussed whether their turntable cartridge could ...
  • Replied in Curious
    Given flat or falling big camera sales and the pandemic of smart-phone and tablet photography, I'd say that that moment has already sailed past. :-/ bob5050
  • There's no doubt on my part that the K-1 is going to handle higher ISO better than the K-3, so if this is an area of concern, that is a differentiator. I tend to favor the loweer ISO even at the ...
