Christoph Stephan's recent activity

  • Sorry, I overlooked that. Apart from the "rugged and waterproof issue" the battery hunger of smartphones (which need to be recharged almost every day) may prevent the use of smart phones on ...
  • I had similar experiences, but they date back to 2006 and ealier or even to my film days. Therefore I am not sure whether the "big camera hostility" has increased, although people told me it ...
  • There are important niches where the compact camera definetely will survive, even if the worst predictions come true. I very much doubt that smartphone manufacturers will ever make rugged ...
  • He will need this only for photos with high dynamic range, not for every photo. Sometimes, graduated filters are also a convenient solution to this problem.
  • Replied in Part II
    Another, more convenient alternative would be sunSET shots....
  • Good point I know this as well, there is even the story of sawing off toothbrushes in order to save weight. On the other hand, on these treks you do not have access to power sockets for days or ...
  • Replied in Turn-off
    Thanks for providing the imformation so explicitly. It is important information also before you switch to mirrorless, because for me having to to turn on and off for every shot  would be a ...
  • Replied in Battery life
    ..and in those two paragraphs you nicely provided the answer why you get so much more shots per charge than Wheatfield with an EVF camera. BIF and windsurfers - high speed action shooting, little ...
  • Replied in Handlebar bag
    During my bike trips I always used a handlebar bag, it is the most convent option if you want to enjoy the trip over longer distances. I usually had it in a camera bag which I put in the handlebar ...
  • ..and with each second each minute we look through the EVF it consumes battery power... The disadanvatage in battery life of EVF cameras will always remain - you never reach the zero power ...
  • Here are some, although there may be other factors as operator error and settings that may limit their quality. Most were shot with picture style Landscape, user defined setting with colour ...
  • The EOS 200D (SL2) has a viewfinder magnification of 0.87. whereas that of the EOS 800D is 0.82. Therefore it is not surpirsing that the EOS200D is more comfortable to use. The image quality will ...
  • Replied in Weight saving
    I correct myself, the XT-100 has flash . The other comparisons still stand.
  • Correct me if I am wrong, but when I check the pictures in the link above, I do not find any exposure compensation dial or button on any side of this camera hailed as a "game changer". Without ...
  • Replied in Weight saving
    It is very interesting to note that this  almost the same weight as my Canon EOS 200D SLR (inclusive batteries). If you then consider the better battery life of the latter (650 pictures per charge) ...
  • By these standards, the "S" could have been dropped from the term "SLR" long ago because nearly all cameras that use a mirror reflex designs use only one lens for quote a longt time now. Double ...
  • Really? I do not have a Smartphone. I have two digital SLRs, another one converted to Infrared, one compact camera and one film SLR. Admittendly I do already have a mobile (since 2004), but it is ...
  • ...can leave the picture  a bit "burnt around the edges". This is the case with my polariser at least at 10mm: EF-S 10-18mm at 10mm with polariser Admittely, my polariser is rather thick, an ...
  • Travelling to Europe for that purchase would have solved this problem, here they are called EOS XXXD (X for different digits, depending on the model) none has that "Rebel logo on it... :-)
  • This is why I like the zoom function of telephoto lenses (100-400 mm, 150-600mm). Only a tiny minority of my pcitures is taken at the short end of my telephoto zoom, but it is indispensable for ...
