  • The filter affects both the ambient and flash exposure, while the shutter affects only ambient. So it is not exactly the same thing. A one stop filter halves your flash power and a 2 stop filter ...
  • Intermittent malfunctions can be hard to reproduce in a short testing period. You don't expect Nikon techs to test and baby your camera for several hours while they have actual repairs to do? The ...
  • Replied in yes
    Rear element protection.
  • The II has a different VR unit, but both lenses have the nano pixie dust sprinkled all over them.
  • Me either. Cambridgeincolor is full with naive errors and should be avoided like the plague. This list is incomplete. Two other factors directly affecting DOF are focusing distance and magnification ...
  • This is nonsense and voodoo. Do you believe in elves, angels, santaclauses, witches and boogeymen too? Why not forsake such faith-based fatuity and find out the facts instead? This happens to be a ...
  • I don't watch video clips. I want to consume information at my own pace and I am a very fast reader. Video is a medium that forces the consumer to advance at the pace of the presenter and that is ...
  • Replied in Third harm
    I have encountered a third kind of problem with "protector" filters. I have at least a couple of lenses that misfocus with a UV(0) filter. The error is big enough to see in the viewfinder, most ...
  • The sizes themselves are a bit odd, but the numbering system with rational numbers having decimal denominators is ugly. Outright linear measurement of the diagonal would be the most neat.
  • It looks to me that the built-in image size reduction in the Sigma camera is not as good as it could be. Is it straight binning of the top layer? The end result looks more bayerisque than the Fuji ...
  • It is sold with several brand names, like Opteka, Rokinon, Samyang, Pro Optics and so on. Bob Atkins once tested it with several cameras: Bob Atkins on 500/6.3 mirror lens .
  • Video is a different media altogether. My hobby is still photography. I am not interested in shooting video and I am not interested in watching videos. Video capabilities in cameras do not bother ...
  • G-type lenses (that don't have aperture ring) are not usable on non-af bodies. the lens will stay stopped down to the smallest aperture.
  • ... could be one or two more or less now, don't remember.
  • Shutter speed. I struggle with the same issue when I shoot my daughter's taekwondo. Old fluorescent lights flicker at twice the rate of the electricity. Here we use 50 Hz electricity so the ...
  • HI, I haven't ever seen a D750 but if it has a round eyepiece like the higher end models, then just close the viewfinder shutter curtain and unscrew the regular eyepiece off. That consists of 3 ...
  • Yes, it is obvious side by side now that you point it out. I didn't start with the raw but with your first jpeg. Perhaps my Faststone viewer or the repeated jpeg re-compression does some ...
  • Replied in Hey c'mon ...
    I'm 100 % certain that Lexar cards produce a little bit cleaner shadows and better tonality in the dark tones than SanDisk, whereas SanDisk has smoother highlight rolloff  and more exposure ...
  • Perhaps the image is a bit misfocused... looks like the focal plane is a bit front of the subject. I would not (and I never do) do noise reduction as it tends to decimate all the remaining details ...
  • Ok, fair enough. I just thought that you might be able to get close enough to live music performers so that 200mm would be enough and in dim light the extra stop could be handy. I really don't ...
