  • Fair point, and I hadn't thought about an L bracket :) I do still prefer pan/tilt, but I shoot landscapes largely and can take a little extra time. But I do sometimes miss the ball for the speed :D
  • Fair, you're not wrong. While I do have some major issues with this topic as a whole, it isn't people buying $50,000 cameras that are 'the problem'. It's just a symptom. I should be nicer. That ...
  • DP2 Merrill :D edit: Can't recall which method of pic posting dodges compression :D But nothing I've ever owned has come close to it.
  • Because it feels like giving us a short list of people to knock off for good cameras...? :D Or because we wish people who CAN afford one would go somewhere else and/or disappear from the planet? Fr ...
  • Honestly I used to do these comparisons too and it's just not really possible, directly anyway. The sensor design outputs different looking images. Sure you could probably compare linear resolution ...
  • They're not in fashion anymore but I'd say dump the ball head for a really good 3-way Pan/Tilt head. A good Pan/Tilt is so much easier to quickly swap between portrait and landscape, while still ...
  • The concept it was ever a bad thing was... stupid. Yes you should focus on shooting more than reviewing but reviewing is part of any workflow. For any job. Imagine a studio musician who took a ...
  • My only experiences... 24/2 - Great 24mm lens. Haven't tried the 2.8, but its nice and sharp. Glowy at f/2, but sharp in the center after. Does need a lot of stopping for corners (8-11). 35/2.8 - ...
  • Haha, I like it :D But no, no camera carried at time of injury. 4 fairly major (no jaws of life but still) wrecks is all. Yay for people on cell phones and bad luck!
  • I use my hands :D So far, no drops. Used to use a neck strap but multiple back/neck injuries have made that a non-starter. Figured hey, since I never drop anything... eh. About 4-5 years no strap ...
  • Replied in Favourite lens
    Of lenses I've owned probably... 38/3.5 PEN-F Macro. Of lenses I have not.... 60/1.5 PEN-F probably :D Or if not adapting, DP2 Merrill 30/2.8 lens that's fixed to it. Makes me question why I own a ...
  • No but when I realize I am willingly joining people I dislike (note, this is definitely not meant as MFT users as a whole) I halt for a second. It will not ultimately impact the final decision, ...
  • I occasionally think about diving back in to MFT (I owned one for a bit, but have since gone FF). I have a bad back, and the lighter system and IBIS would both benefit me as a result. Then I come ...
  • Because discussing things is fun, but when I take it to the point of having to dig for samples it ceases to be fun.
  • I do enjoy those FLs, but I always found the classic kit idea funny. Portrait photography specialists have little use for an ultrawide or a 500mm. Birders have very little use for anything under ...
  • I mean, the 24/2.8 STM probably is the better/easier lens but I don't understand the difficulty of Canon DSLR focusing? Canon DSLR is second to Canon mirrorless for manual focus, to me. Everything ...
  • So the goal is for everyone to have to buy a hard drive rack alongside their cellphone? Or is there a cloud server that's cool with like 500 gigs in photos in 2 months? I mean ok there likely is...

  • Yes, apologies. A DSLR will adapt less. The only usable on EF from memory are... M42, Pentax K, Nikon F, Exakta and Olympus OM and Contax C/Y. I'm probably forgetting some but hey... maybe Rollei QBM?
  • I used a Canon T1i for my first adapted manual lenses. It worked great. In fact, I'd argue it worked better than most mirrorless for one major reason. Magic Lantern! It has a feature in it where ...
  • So glad I don't live in a big city anymore when reading this... O.o I've never once had the thought cross my mind someone would try to snatch my gear from my neck!
