  • In photography I prefer the 18% gray side.
  • I yhought this thred was about cheap lenses! ;-) The cheapest lens I used is a vintage Auto Revuenon 135/2.8 which I paid $5 for. For close focus in controlled light conditionsit works quite well, ...
  • Where I live unlimited data cost $50+ per month, so this would triple the cost of camera ownership for me. Using 3 cameras as I do, it would add like $2000 per year. No way I would take this cost ...
  • One problem with a solution like this is that the lens mount would need to be much larger, like putting a Nikon Z-mount on a m43 camera. Leading to native m43 lenses increase in size. Then the ...
  • A used Pentax Q with an adapted vintage 500mm lens may be cheaper. But it may be difficult to find a lens that give same IQ as P1000.
  • För most buyers the situation is even better. They already bought a camera that is way more than they need several years ago
  • Not sure what it is you want to replicate, but Pentax KP with Pentax 21mm lens will give you similar sized package as K1000 with 35mm lens. KP has body stabilization, but no touch interface. The ...
  • Photography is not a cheap hobby, but it is not an expensive hobby for me. Most my gear I buy is used so the cost is not very high and I can usually sell the equpment with minimal loss later. But ...
  • I think the biggest cost of photography is that you need a home where you can store your equipment.;)
  • I have a couple of functions on my cameras that can help with this. (1) Memory setting: where I can select which function the camera will remember after camera is switched off. I have choosen to turn ...
  • If I want a light camera/lens combination, I would prefer a EVF no FF camera over a FF no EVF camera.
  • Why should you get a 1" sensor camera when a smartphone can capture just as good images?
  • I use both DSLR with OVF and mirrorless with EVF, and I like using both. But they have different strength/weakness. (which is pretty well documented) In most situations that I shoot, both work ...
  • Replied in Field of view
    I belove most smartphones have been marketed with 35mm equivalent focal length as specification on AOV, just like any other camera with fixed lens
  • Replied in Field of view
    "Equivalent focal length" is already a definition of FOV (or more presicely AOV). But it is expressed in focal length as that is what is known of the lens or camera. AOV ior FOV s usually an ...
  • Most cameras do not have much of a heat sink attached to the sensor, so there is no big difference if the camera has IBIS or not. A heat sink does not help much in a camera as there is not much ...
  • And here is the other 3 or the big 4 Japanese SLR manufactures of the 1960-1970s: Nikon: http://knippsen.blogspot.com/2014/05/japanese-slr-production-numbers-part-1.html Minolta: http://knippsen.bl ...
  • Found yhis site with lots of information on manufacturing volumes on Pentax manual focus SLR cameras http://knippsen.blogspot.com/2014/06/japanese-slr-production-numbers-part-3.html
  • I read somewhere that 4 million Spotmatic(s) where manufactured in total (1965 - 1976). But that where several models with minor changes. And it peaked in 1968 with with half a million produced, ...
  • That is one of the points of using spot metering. If you meter a small well defined part of the scene that you know the brightness of, it is easy to know how to set up the camera long before the ...
