  • HI, Not sure about the spiritual or immaterial aspect of the user experience but the M6.2 does have 2.5 deal breaker issues for me. 1. No EFCS. This does lead to shutter shock demonstrated with ...
  • The reviewer's narrative is .."(at 24mm and f4) ...very good resolution and reasonable contrast". I looked at his reviews of both the RF 24-105 lenses. I made screen shots of the weakest part of ...
  • HI, I suspect you might be seeing a "problem" where there is unlikely to be one. I have been using Canon cameras for 40 years and never had a serious exposure issue with any of them, including the RP.
  • HI Fred,  Advanced User Guide, Page 78, FW 1.6. Canon DPP only. Could you let the forum know if you get something useful out of it ? Andrew
  • Hi, I have not done a full comparison. I use the EOS R +24-105 f4 for standard focal length work and the RX10.4 when I want a longer focal length. The full frame camera is better for landscape and ...
  • Agree with all these After profile corrections the loss of sharpness at the wide end is only mild In the middle of the zoom range, around 35-150mm peripheral sharpness is good to very  good When ...

  • HI John, These articles on my Camera Ergonomics blog are relevant to your questions about the EOS R with FW 1.6 and also comparison with the Nikon Z6. ...
  • HI, I ran into the same issue. If the camera is set up to change aperture with  the aperture ring on the lens you get P, A, S, M as expected. But if changing aperture is assigned to the front ...
  • HI, I have Z50 with Z DX 16-50mm and Z DX 50-250mm plus Z6 with Z FX 24-70 f4 and Fuji X100V with 23mm f2. I have carefully tested each camera-lens combination using test charts and real world ...
  • Hi, I have had the Epson XP15000 for two years. It is excellent. I does all my routine office printing and also makes excellent color or monochrome prints to a very high standard. I have never ...
