  • Hmmm... Just the appropriate time. Remember that article a few weeks ago? (you know which one)

    I think I saw it passing by, losing any relevance it had (if it had any) while I read this...

  • Roland, I don't wanna pretend I know too much about baseball, as I rarely shoot sports. But honest question: Knowing how "slow" your camera is, don't you think you benefit more from timing the shot ...
  • Replied in Butthurt!
    Hi! Ok, agree I was a bit optimistic, that stuff is not exactly dirt cheap. But saving enough, it's doable (I guess?). I rarely use ebay, but take a look at this price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leaf ...
  • Replied in Butthurt!
    None of them are exactly controlled. Some are on the beach (salty moisture, a real danger for a non weather sealed camera), some are on very dark places (asking a lot from an already poor AF system). ...
  • Replied in Butthurt!
    I'm sure you guys know, but there're endless comments either way saying "Nikon is dead!", "wake up call for Nikon!", "why keep shooting with those dinosaurs??", "Sony is the future and everything ...
  • Replied in Butthurt!
    I was letting this thread be, but oh dear, butthurt now? Lol, guys, c'mon. :D My message is easy: it's the photographer, not the camera. IF and WHEN (capital letters, bold and underlined) the ...
  • I'll probably address more comments later. A bit busy right now. Ah yes, ISO 3 billion... We all know how that turned out, don't we? You know that feeling of marketing armchairs saying "more ...
  • I read most comments (not all yet) and although we can disagree, notice not everyone understood the point I was trying to make. This is not a Nikon D5, Canon 1Dx II defense. This is a "draw a line ...
  • I'm seeing A9 threads maxing out before you can blink your eyes. I'm off to bed, but before I'd like to write some thoughts and see what you guys think. I'm not against tech, and I'm certainly no ...
  • I appreciate a lot all the help you guys are providing, I really do. I even learnt something I've never knew (that the AF sensor works at f5.6 and f2.8 will not improve things). That was really ...
  • Hi Leonard, I appreciate a lot your replies and there's genuinely good intentions there, but I think that's a case of going too far to not acknowledge hardware failure. Hardware can fail, even Nikon ;)
  • A bit busy, little time now for a proper reply. But that's interesting! So my AF will not benefit from opening the aperture back to f2.8 ? :( Maybe back to Nikon it will... oh well... :( Best regards,
  • Hi Nic, Ahh I see, in that case, I'd go 5d mk IV and never look back. Reasons: Mark IV's DR is more future proof. Every time you see me posting something about DR, I'm that guy that says 12 stops ...
  • Replied in Samples
    Agree, it's easy to see how inferior it is compared to, say, the D700's AF. That's probably the case. AF module is light starved at f4.5, combined with D2x's older module, that's probably where the ...

    Thanks again everyone for the replies! Really thanks. you guys are awesome! Sorry for not posting samples yet, but I think I have 2 options now: First send it back to the non authorized service to ...
  • Nic, As you've always considered DMF and also shoot fashion, please take a look at Julio Ryuuzaki's video. https://youtu.be/2BfV0PEGP-Y It's well worth the time. Although not comparing directly to ...
  • Replied in
    Thanks everyone for the replies. really thanks! Hi Leonard, At first I thought so, because I was focusing on trees (somewhat) hidden in shadows, which makes them quite low contrast subjects. But ...
  • Thanks for the reply! I'm really not sure. I think it's always been there, but really can't be sure. My D200 shots from ages ago probably had a percentage of misfocused shots (?). But it's hard to ...
  • Commented on article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Review

    Cont.

    Now with film, I believe it's easier to stick with film's own look, because that was your goal in the first place.

    DPs chose their film stock by the aesthetics that particular film...

  • Commented on article Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 Review

    Cont.

    The first was shot on film, with a tad minor color grading, less CGI, less use of chroma key, less art directed for lack of a better term. It looks like you're watching reality, a real...
