  • Where are you finding all these poor pictures? I think most of the pictures here are great! I wouldn't recommend you print them to fill the entire wall of your living room, but for regular viewing ...
  • Your calculations are correct, but you're calculating the zoom of the view finder. Did you try taking a photo at 70 mm and zooming in on it (on the camera or computer)? If that shows more detail ...
  • I have experienced the EXACT same thing: I got my first camera when I was still a kid. I took a lot of photos and quickly thought I was an expert. When I showed them to my dad and uncle, they were ...
  • P1000 is the best camera for taking photos of things that are far away. For everything else, there's MasterCard a better camera. I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything, but for taking general ...
  • Sure, here's an example of the JPEG and the raw from the same shot. :) JPEG raw Click on one of them, then use arrow left and right to switch between them and compare. :)
  • I noticed in Capture NX-D that my raws and JPEGs shot handheld often looked very different geometrically, but only when I had VR enabled. I put a piece of grid paper up on my wall and took a ton of ...
  • I forgot to add that we haven't shown conclusively that the raws have the VR distortion. It might be the JPEGs instead. Hopefully we will find out soon. :)
  • Oh yeah, one other thing... It also depends on how much space you have left on your storage card, right? If you only have space left for a 16 minute video, it will show 16:00 when you start ...
  • Quick reply here from looking at 100 of raws I took yesterday in Capture NX-D: There is no distortion that looks like that. There is only the distortion you get with VR enabled, which I have so ...
  • I think changing the first one is a bad idea. They are obviously VERY worried that someone's movie will get cut off at an unexpected time as they give you a full 30 minute countdown. This way you ...
  • Can you switch to MF instead and press the right arrow to AF?
  • Yeah, that's good thinking, but shouldn't that also apply equally to the raws and the JPEGs? Fun fact: When shooting handheld with VR enabled the raws are zoomed more than then JPEGs, especially on ...
  • Looks like it's a VR thing. I have done a bunch of tests and it always happens with VR on and never with VR off. The funny thing is that the VR seems to be equally good on both the raw and the ...
  • I just tried photographing our floor tiles at 24 mm and it doesn't happen there at all. The images obviously have different colors, but the geometry is exactly the same, unlike in all my 3,000 mm ...
  • Try switching back and forth between these two. It's JPEG and raw from the same shot. :) JPEG raw
  • Created discussion thread Lens distortion
    Hi. When I shoot raw + JPEG and compare the images there is a major distortion difference. Switching between the JPEG and raw version of the same shot makes it look like this: I'm thinking that the ...
  • People keep asking the people posting pics: "How far away is that bird on your photo?" Now we can say: "It's an 8 cm bird taking up 80% of the frame at 2,200 mm, so it's 220 meters away." :)
  • I checked it some more and I think my method is correct and yours is off a bit due to rounding the angle of view to 0.6, when it's actually very close to 0.55. :) I believe the formulas are ...
  • Thank you very much. :) This is what I had, so I wasn't even close: Distance (meters) = Height (meters) * Zoom (mm) / 24 Distance (meters) = 1.42 (meters) * 2500 (mm) / 24 Distance (meters) = ...
  • Created discussion thread Help with P1000 distance calculation
    This is my son. He is 1.42 meters tall and pretty far away. Zooming to 2,500 mm results in him taking up the full height of the frame on my P1000. How far away is he exactly? So I'm looking for a ...
