About me:

Amateur with a passion for pictorial photography of more than fifty years. Likes to communicate and learn from others with expert knowledge, especially if they also live in the real world, have galleries or links to really good photos and put their camera to good use.

  • There is one important factor, especially fir amateurs using equipment up to professional standards. Are they in danger of supplies of new lenses to match drying up? Otherwise, of course, you are ...
  • @Bob Jameson "So you want to see the real scene but view the photos in a fake LCD monitor or printed paper?"

    This guy has some strange ideas. Maybe he should view the scene through an EVF but not...

  • Please see https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61892411 where I ask is the DSLR dead or dying? It seems better not to continue too much here over EVF versus OVF and mirrorless versus DSLR.

    Let's...

  • Created discussion thread Is the DSLR dead or dying?
    Is the DSLR dead or dying or mirrorless just the new kid on the block? So many people in their comments claim the former, but where is the evidence? There are many people like me, perhaps a large ...
  • @MikeRan What nonsense.

    Mirrorless with EVF is with us but DSLR with OVF lives on.

    Mirrorless does have one definite advantage over DSLR. That is all that overlaid information instead of the...

  • If some Sony camera have RAW zebras, then I agree with @DFPannoand then I am I am wrong with my opening statement at the outset, there is one camera that has the feature I was after but that is...

  • That is fair enough for people who like that and I know a lot of people do. However, as I made quite clear I prefer to see what I am taking, not what may result. That is because from experience I...

  • No question EVF is better for low light and perfectly OK in most people's usual daylight scenes. But, as you well know, I was not talking about that.

    Which means I am not proven wrong at all. You...

  • I spoke to a good guy at the technical department of my Nikon dealer today and he accepted what I have been saying about the limitations of EVF. I have one as my second camera, an E-PL3 with the...

  • In fact I was joking, being sarcastic. The kind of gps I had in mind was not to pinpoint where a shot was taken but to drive on the road from A to B. In the UK we call it satnav, which IMO is a...

  • I just looked up and discovered what zebras are. What an utterly silly name when something like hatched would do. On Fast Raw Viewer there are options to turn that on the displayed image by using...

  • No need to rely upon tiny histograms, @DFPanno, just the % pixels of the total out of range at each end, which need to be shown. That is what I assess in Fast Raw Viewer. There is a histogram graph...

  • @Bob Jameson tells me below that banding is overblown. I do not think so, If it correct that it can be fixed, then why is it there in the first place?

  • There is one feature no camera yet has but should, definitely at this price less. That is a full RAW histogram, rather than only the edited JPEG, drastically reduced from the image on the sensor....

  • Reading what @Bob Jameson says at length below about all the features built into the Z7 makes me wonder. I was surprised years back when they decided to turn still cameras into movie makers by...

  • For me the only attraction of this camera is the compact size and lower weight. I expect the handling is very nice too. Even so, I prefer DSLR and expect always to do so. However, I wanted to read...

  • Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.

    @mod2001 refers to all the trolls, when he actually means those who disagree. How brainless is this.

  • In "Five ways the Nikon Z7..." I have complained that digital has taken the wrong path. I am not sure I would want an M10-D but this is closer to the direction I would have preferred digital to...

  • IMO digital equipment has taken entirely the wrong path. When camera manufacturers first devised autofocus on compact film cameras, at first it worked crudely but it was not long before it worked...

  • Utterly daft and so are DP Review for publishing this.

    Sorry @entoman, not in the least bit funny.
