  • Replied in Nicely stated!
    It can be useful for macro. Going from f/16 to f/22 can mean the difference between just getting a little bug's eye sharp and also getting the edge of its shell in focus. That can make a much ...
  • I've got an IR converted camera. I've taken quite a few shots of people but I've never seen anyone's clothing become transparent.

    As shown in the video, fabric of any colour often looks white...

  • If it had PDAF and a tilt screen then I'd be very temped. I think I could even put up with that silly JPEG dial stuck on the front. Without PDAF I don't see what it could offer to convince me to ...
  • Looks like a good camera if you like/tolerate flip out screens, but personally I think it's a shame that Fuji moved away from the two-direction tilt of previous models.

    This screen design might be...

  • I have absolutely no clue whatsoever how anything I have written here could possibly have given you that impression. I thought I'd clearly stated that I was interested in the functionality this ...
  • Except it is applicable in Pentax's TAv mode and has been since at least 2006. I provided you with a link to the K10D manual as evidence of that. If you still doubt it you could ask pretty much ...
  • You're certainly correct that this comment doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. It's hard for me to make my mind up about anything when I have no idea what point you're trying to make. As ...
  • The information you posted is laughable out of date. The oldest Pentax camera I've used is the K10D released back in 2006, and that certainly allowed the use of EC in TAv mode. See page 144 of the ...
  • I responded to this point in my last comment and explained why I'd still consider it "manual" even if there's auto ISO. There are plenty of things that have changed since the days of those fully ...
  • That's fair enough, although that kind of argument over semantics seems rather silly to me. I'd still consider it a "manual mode" because unlike P A & S modes it provides the photographer with full ...
  • In no way, shape, or form have I argued that anyone else has to agree with my approach, let alone that it's the one and only way. You are the one who started this discussion by calling requests for ...
  • Disagreement is fine, but I think it's a bit of a shame that you raised this topic yet don't seem to want to understand why other people have a different opinion. You mention that this is something ...
  • No, it isn't the same thing. EC itself isn't automatic, but the metering that it adjusts certainly is. I only need EC if the camera's metering isn't giving me what I want. If I'm using ...
  • You definitely don't understand this feature or the benefits of using it. Yes, you see it, but you still need to manually adjust the ISO setting whenever the lighting or other settings change. To ...
  • No, when the lighting changes in that scenario you wouldn't necessarily need to adjust EC. The camera would meter the scene and automatically increase ISO when the lighting gets darker, or reduce ...
  • The difference in that scenario is that your camera wouldn't then automatically adjust the ISO if the lighting changed. Adjusting the ISO manually would only provide the desired brightness at that ...
  • I don't think it's bad advice to suggest that people try different settings with an open mind and see what works for them. At the same time I think that disappointing results are often at least ...
  • The specific quirk of Panasonic's AF system discussed in that thread was the way it treats the single AF point as a suggestion of where to focus, rather than restricting itself purely to that ...
  • Personally I use auto-ISO in manual about 90% of the time because for me it offers the best of both worlds: full creative control with the speed of an auto-mode. Having access to exposure ...
  • Custom multi might work well for you, your camera, and the photographs you're taking, but you should consider that that may not hold true for other people. Personally I like being able to choose ...
