I worry about all that, but first about the people before my lens.

Klaus dk's recent activity

  • Replied in New gear!
    Not really, no. I was happy to have a day job that interested me and earned me enough money to pursue photography as a hobby. The standard answer would be to go out and buy new gear. ;-) My ...
  • Foot in mouth disease
  • Real name, AFAIK: Jared Polin. Long time YouTuber. (In case it was a rethorical question, I'm sorry to spoil your fun) :-)
  • Lack of sharpening was also my first thought. Have you experimented with sharpening raws in post? It may be that the Pentax' processor is not quite as good as what can be done  in an editor today? ...
  • Interesting article. My inner voice and I work together in constant dialogue, but also sometimes in visuals. My inner self reminds me of a picture "we" have seen, and says: why don't we try to ...
  • I read reviews here and elsewhere before buying anything. The more expensive items I usually buy in a b&m store. I buy used and smaller items on the Net.
  • Geometric and perspective distortion are two different things. You can get better results from geometric distortion in DPP. The lens profiles in PS are not as good as Canon's own. If you want less ...
  • Best humour on DPR for months. I'm sure no grasshoppers will read this and be offended.
  • I shoot people for their resumees. We have no contact before they arrive at the makeshift studio, and even though they're given a written instruction sheet (wear dark, neutral colours, iron your ...
  • That would mean very little to me, but there may be a cultural difference I don't know of. "Zooming with your feet" is a way to change composition, while zooming with the lens is a way to crop or ...
  • Replied in Something good?
    No, but you don't have to. You can get a perfectly fine FF camera (Canon EOS RP) with a nice 24-105 lens for GBP 1529. A Canon EOS 90D + 18-135/3.5~5.6 is more expensive at GBP 1629. In most ways I ...
  • Thank you. This explains a lot and comfirms my suspicions. I've always been happy with my APS-C sensors, but missed the f/2 trinity that could compete with the equivalent f/2.8 trinity for FF ...
  • Save your money and work outdoors on an overcast day. You can't trigger a flash with your phone and a single LED may not be sufficient. For product photography lighting, the book Light — Science & ...
  • The symbol above the number 7 is the Greek letter alpha.
  • It's more complicated than that. Jacob A. Riis documented the abysmal living conditions of poor immigrants in NYC and influenced the later president Theodore Roosevelt to create social reforms ...
  • I think 50 or 55mm lenses were chosen for SLRs because they were the shortest focal lengths that didn't need a reverse telephoto (retrofocus) design to allow for the swinging mirror. When I bought ...
  • Some photographers prefer primes, but whether they really (k)now better is, IMHO, an open question. I followed their advice but never enjoyed neither the 50/1.8 nor the 35/2. I believe the most ...
  • IIRC, three developments made zooms accessible: (1) Multi coating made lenses with a higher number of elements possible without loss of contrast and light transmission. Correcting a zoom lens takes ...
  • The short answer is yes, but the short answer is faulty to a degree where it makes little sense. Richard Butler of DPReview has written a series "What's That Noise". Enjoy.
  • I think that a camera does not know the distance to the subject it has focused on, unless it has a fixed lens with no filter thread. Distance information in exif is known to be inaccurate.
