  • Like I wrote a few months back when you last time had this same Foveon/Bayer obsessive-compulsive comparison thread, why do't you just declare that Foveon has 10x the resolution of a Bayer sensor ...
  • Replied in Motion sickness
    I can't pinpoint the reason, but looking at these pictures is very uncomfortable. I get motion sickness. Somehow the look of the background is like the camera has been panned back and forth... or ...
  • Replied in Quadruple
    Doubling the linear resolution corresponds to a significant gain in my books. This naturally requires quadrupling the number of pixels. Hence 6 Mpix -> 24 Mpix -> 96 Mpix -> 400 Mpix -> 1.6 GPix is ...
  • The OP's issue was overexposure at ISO 64 and he asked if LO1 setting fixes that. The answer is still no, since when it comes to exposure, the end results is the same as setting +1 EV at ISO 64. No ...
  • Looks like you have underexposed the image. Just adding some lightness to the image fixes the dark sky. Set +1 EV exposure compensation as per instructed in the user manual page 107.
  • The concept of a modular video camera is brilliant. Just a few small tune-ups before release would add to the appeal for still shooters. A mechanical shutter, a fully articulating screen, 4K60p ...
  • Yes, these polite chats are fun entertainment. 😁
  • Your opinion isn't interesting, nor are your images. You are a stranger. I can chat with strangers politely like this, but that's the limit. You can think it is strange all you want since I don't ...
  • You didn't tell what the reasons to post are. Creating for personal enjoyment and for one's family is the reason for the gear, sure. But posting for strangers to see or looking at strangers' ...
  • Setting Lo1 is the exactly same thing as setting EC +1.0 at ISO 64. After the capture the in-camera processing "darkens" the image "by 1 stop" when creating the JPEG file but that is too late to ...
  • Sony doesn't call the image stabilization ibis, it has been SSS™ for over a decade. The first sss system was used in Minolta 7D in 2004 (as we know Minolta is now owned by Sony). Not srip not ibis ...
  • Replied in 4K60p I presume?
  • Replied in Nope
    Nikon D1X.
  • The newer lens is sharper and might resolve more detail. Also depending on scene the wider view of 35mm might contain more details than the narrower 55mm. Finally if you shoot the 55mm at a wider ...
  • Replied in Maths rant!
    No, I won't correct you. You prefer to not know and that's your right. In my world knowing always trumps ignorance, especially willful ignorance, which I think is self harming. For me the purpose ...
  • Replied in Maths rant!
    15 Mpix
  • Won't make any difference. The Lo1 setting records the exactly same raw data as the ISO 64 setting at the same exposure. The Lo1 ISO tag in the file instructs the raw developer to decrease image ...
  • Replied in Maths rant!
    Here a lens is obviously used. Same pixel count 300x400 yet the left one has 4 times the resolution.
  • Replied in Maths rant!
    Resolution means ability to resolve whereas pixel count is just a number of pixels. Both images above have 410x315 pixels (0.13 MPix), but the left one has twice the resolution (about 205 lp/ih) ...
  • Replied in Maths rant!
    No. To something being 3-dimensional, there needs to be 3 dimensions. Like volume for example, width x height x depth. Mass is a measure of a physical body's resistance to acceleration when a net ...
