  • All this depends o your photographic style, but as the 17-50mm is already f2.8 I would not bother to bring the 50 mm f1.8 or any other primes. However, I do not many people photographs (of people ...
  • Replied in Godsent for me
    For the question, one has to have real knowledge of cost calculation and "the economy af scale". I tend to think that most people appreciate to have at least the capability and it would be more ...
  • Then you need to question yourself whether you will be happy with a heavier fullframe camera. I would say that in this case you should buy the FF as an addiion, not as a replacement. Except for the ...
  • Keeping thisin mind, it would be of interest whether it was the Pentax or the Nikon DSLR of the OP where the aftermarket screen was removed.
  • Video adds the dimension of time, of a plot. This alone makes it much more demanding for the average hobbyist. You find a plenty of photos from dedicated enthusiasts that come very close in ...
  • They are different art forms, therefore it is comparing apples and oranges. There will be always place for photography. Even if resolution of videos reaches a level where you can extract ...
  • My general impression was that they looked softer in the DPR gallery than on my computer when viewed with Canon Zoom Browser. But then, they were also softer in Windows Photo Viewer (Windows XP) ...
  • This is also a function of other factors, i.e. 1. additional items other than camera gear adding to the weight (water, food, clothing) 2. temperature 4. type of backpack. I greatly underestimated ...
  • How much of that is owed to the fact that you can change ISO on the fly with digital, with film you can't?
  • Nice, but where is the achievement? I use(d) both film and digital cameras extensively, and in both cases I preferred the SLR. I only stepped into digital once the digital SLR finally became ...
  • Unless there are specific reasons to switch, I would rather upgrade to a camera of the brand you already have (in this case, Pentax). The Pentax K1 is an attractive offer especially for Landscape ...
  • Back to the opening post, restrictions on photographers and the press is by no means confined to the progressive or liberal left. (Press) photographers regularly face an extremely hostile ...
  • Compared to corresponding fullframe DSLRs (of the same companies), they appear to have only one third of the battery life. This is such a significant disadvantage that, should I go full frame, I ...
  • Replied in camera "dead"...
    What is sure, every camera is "dead" without power. And since mirrorless cameras consume more power, given the same amount of spare batteries, the EVF camera will be dead more quickly in the field ...
  • Replied in End of EF-S?
    This is true. That is why I speculated that probably EF-M users do not care. Those who do not bother about the pros and cons of SLR versus mirrorless - the huge majority of users - probably won't ...
  • Replied in 3rd party lenses
    Even if it did, it would be useless for third-party lenses. Only native Canon EF and EF-S lenses can be seen in the list. I would have been out of luck with my Tamron.
  • Replied in End of EF-S?
    I am not sure. Looking at this forum, there seems to be a strong preference for either mirrorless or DSLR. For the mirrorless fans it will be a sting if the fullframe system is not compatible with ...
  • The Rebels mostly have too small viewfinders for my taste but in the EOS 200D / SL2 the small sized portable DSLR found its perfect solution (and perhaps earlier in some Pentax entry models, apart ...
  • Replied in For cropping
    It changes angle of view, but in particular, magnifies one part of the image on display (that bird that would otherwise be only a minor dot on the whole image....). This magnification is only ...
  • How does this come? Better in-camera-jpg, better colour rendition?
