There's nothing wrong with using presets.
However, buying presets instead of doing it with your own hands, is the next level of lazy and wrong.

That PITA lawsuit really is ridiculous.

Equivalence works.

No :)) I don't care ...

No. Aperture and shutter speed affect light gathering.

I never said that they don't affect the image. You are imagining things :)
I'd rather write a book on photography than force myself to believe your delusional nonsense :)

@cosinaphile
yes yes yes yes ... :)) You are so wrong ... Digital is so much different than film. It is made to seem similar on purpose, just so you and other clueless dilettantes could operate a digital camera. Because at the beginning of digital photography most people were too skeptical to even try it. So digital imaging was artificially dumbed down into what we have today. While all these theories about the equivalence, the ISO indifference, the CoC, etc. are just the simple physics behind the digital camera, which arrogant ignoranuses didn't want to digest in the first place. Some people never grow up, they don't care what's true and they keep spreading nonsense and delusions just to feel comfortable in their own BS fairy tale.

I'm not confused. They are different things. Exposure in today's pseudo-scientific photography means image brightness. Which is a wrong description, because image brightness is achieved by manipulating digital data, not chemistry.

@Bhima78
Technically, exposure is not the same. To get the same image brightness, the signal from smaller pixels needs to be amplified more than from larger pixels. More sensitive film is grainier too. This is true even for the same format cameras with different mega-pixel count. Which is why lower resolution cameras can do higher ISOs. However, there's a paradox. More mega-pixels can compensate for the weaker signal just because there is more of them and information = quality. Basically, larger sensor area makes better image quality, because it can gather more information from the higher amount of light, either because the pixels are larger, or there is more of them, or both (more and larger pixels). More advanced technology can produce sensors with higher optimal resolution. Today 12mp is way behind the optimal resolution. The A7S is optimized for 4K video, that's why it got 12mp. Choosing sensor resolution is like choosing film speed, less grain(resolution) allows farther push.

So you should go watch it then. It's perfect for your age :)

Yeah, you keep repeating yourself like a broken record :))
I'm shooting just fine, thank you for your concern. I just don't share my work on the Internet. Only random stuff in my galleries, all kinds of green wallpapers, which are meant for 40"+ UHD viewing.

Organized pseudo-science is just as bad. You are bad for humanity :)

P.S. I think that you don't like my pictures because your screen is too small :)

As I've told you before, the truth is not a matter of opinion. The huge number people believing in the same BS doesn't make it true. Most people have all sorts of imaginary friends of divine origin. They pray to them, make sacrifices, donate money and do all kinds of crazy things, like cutting off some pieces of their genitals, because the imaginary friend (or his "ambassador") told them to do it. Basically, they are mad. But all the sane people have to pretend and go with it, because we are in the minority. Which is wrong, very wrong ... catastrophically wrong. All that terror, injustice and suffering, all because of human stupidity. You are cancer.

@Bhima78
You should do the thought experiment too. Just be careful. Cosinaphile's brain went coocoo in the process. :)
Exposure settings are made for tuning the image brightness.
The amount of light is what the image is made of, the source of information an imaging sensor is getting it.
"The total light gathered is not depending on the size of the format"
- That's the main stupidity of all the anti-equivalence ignoranuses.

I'm not angry, not at all. You make me laugh. And I didn't even read your long silly comments and insults. They are not worth my time :)).
Yoda is a great character. Only neurotic jerks like you don't know that. I should teach you some Yoda wisdom :D
