  • I’m sure the entitled will cheer!
  • I have little sympathy , there is a need for some hard decisions on energy demand and it needs to go way further and wider to have any prospect of mitigating environmental impacts due to carbon ...
  • I don’t really understand the question. M4/3 is surely not a point of reference. For one and depending on which model you might use , they behave differently in terms of output.  For example I get ...
  • Some interesting thoughts but voice commend is old tech too, I have been using it for more than a decade. There may even be some confusion between the camera, Siri, Alexa and your camera  if you ...
  • That score for a parts bin offering with terrible 1080p, cropped 4K at 30FPS and poor stabilisation?
    Even DPR said they would choose the XT200 over this. We both know that Sony has the ability to...

  • I’m surprised this camera scored so highly. But then again if you take a mediocre hybrid camera and call it a vlogging camera it starts to sound better than it really is.

    If you were to look at...

  • No , I’m not against anything , there is nothing wrong with pointing out that this device brings nothing new other than a marketing label as a vlogging camera , I recall we had this previously...

  • I don’t quite get it. For some years we have been pushing hybred cameras for both stills and video and there are a number of options available.
    Both Panasonic and Sony then release a vlogging...

  • I’m a huge fan of the handsets, and I’m definitely not contesting your views. I was just reflecting that I swapped back to iPhone when Google services was removed.
  • I think the OS is a bigger issue for the handset as a whole . The want of Google services make the handset less appealing
  • Well good luck which ever way you decide to go Jeff. The signs primes are very good, if not excellent.
  • Truly the horns of a dilemma , hold your tongue and try to spare your friends feelings, or be disingenuous ? A loose loose?
  • Personally I would not change for the potential differences. I have owned the EM5 mki, mkii and now mkiii. I won’t argue against that on paper more recent cameras are better featured and may give ...
  • Like shutter lag differences of milliseconds are jugular for landscapes?😂

  • Replied in Fact check
    It was more the daft assertion about 4x4 to carry an EM1. That was part of your topic? I responded. Yes it’s bigger than a Sony FF, but there was no engineering perspective why? As you know it’s ...
  • Replied in Fact check
    I don’t see any point in labouring a discussion , the size is what it is. My point is it’s hardly a disadvantage, I’m hardly sprightly youth yet the EMX is not a burden to me. If you are Nikon ...
  • Replied in Fact check
    I carry my EMX 1 and 300mm pro for miles , how far have you carried one? I used to carry a 7D mkii and a Sigma 150-600 sport. That was heavy. ps the Sony is not a choice I would make for wildlife, ...
  • Years ago I spent many months grinding a lens for a newtonian telescope. The glass was a kind of Pyrex . The idea was that it did not change shape as it heated up or cooled as this would mess with ...
  • Yes, I have always felt uneasy about smartphone imagery and for similar reasons. I also feel they have been bad for the camera manufacturing industry but good for photography in terms of ...
  • No, not at all. We know that smart phones have been used for Vogue magazine etc. Other professionals have used them for creative content , an example below that was shot entirely on a 2016 smartphone.
