  • Yes and no. Jim, let's say there're exceptions to what I said previously. For example, can we agree outdoor strobe photography (which can be done by any format, of course) is mostly a MF trademark, ...
  • LOL ! The funny thing is I already passed ;D no joking Macro! Erik once displayed three 100% crops, 2 from the P45+ (ACR and C1) and 1 from the A7r II. I nailed which were which ;) Erik can confirm ...
  • Somewhere else on these forums I read you didn't move to digital up until 2012. By 2010, for example, wasn't the whole world producing amazing, world-class digital images enough to show you the ...
  • I'm pretty sure you know what I mean. I will get directly to this point. It's because A/B studio shots (as well as all sorts of technical images, such as brick walls, DR tests, etc), do not bring ...
  • Hate to act like a stalker. Just hope you know that's not my intention. A lot of things exist whether we have measured and acknowledged them or not. In photography, we're all wired differently, as ...
  • ...and since they were mostly producing sensors for DMF, you can add that to the list of "yes, there's indeed a MF look". It's really late where I live, I'm super tired, so won't write as much as ...
  • Hi Scott, In case that may help, I have a bunch of RAW files here from older CCD backs (including P45+ and P40+). I assume it will help, because RAW files from vintage backs are rare on the internet. ...
  • Batdude, I'm not sure if you're a pro or not, and which type of photography you do, but regardless of that, I can offer my honest thoughts. Not skill. Try commitment instead. Press photographer. ...
  • Replied in starter camera
    Maybe the 5 you owned were not the best CCD can achieve? For example, the P45+ was a high end, even flagship, DB at some point. I guess quite popular too. But 1 day of testing it, I personally ...
  • Replied in starter camera
    Jim, I won't go as far as saying you're wrong (regarding the OP's uses, I mean). But don't be so quick to judge CCD backs like that. The majority of reports one will find comes from DXO numbers ...
  • But truth be told.

    To everyone else who's not a photographer, it just makes zero sense (which is true, it really doesn't, no matter how you cut it).

  • Apenza is spot on. I'm Brazilian (but thankfully I live in a MUCH less sh#tty place than Rio, which is itself the sh#ttiest place on Earth).

    Tape your camera all you want, you'll be robbed in...

  • I agree, but I think we're talking about different fields. That photographer you know, is he working on events and commercial situations (weddings, studio, fashion on location, sports venue)?

    If...

  • EDIT: forgot to mention this argument.

    We are so used to our Canikon FF and nice glass that we forget the feeling of staring at those things from a layman POV.

    From a layman's eye, a Canon FF is...

  • In case you're a pro shooter, the One reason to never black tape your camera: marketing appeal.

    If you're shooting weddings with dozens or hundreds of people around you, you're literally a...

  • Peter, to be super honest, the make up and hair staff only needed to be average and know the basics for a situation like this (which was indeed the case).

    Because when not shooting, everyone just...

  • Cont.

    And when you think things couldn't get any harder, don't forget about the non-stop rain, the Summer look, and the clock ticking.

    The rain is not so clear in the video, because we went for...

  • Cont.

    If she costs 12 K, that means load on your shoulders. The photographer gotta deliver.

    Before we get to the bottom of this, the overall campaign will have cost more than 100 K.

    That's...

  • Peter, yeah that happens, and needless to say, it ruins your day.

    But here is one example (of mine, unfortunately), that seriously makes a bridezilla look like a barking poodle in...

  • We all hear a lot about bridezillas, and how wedding photography is the stuff nightmares are made of.

    IMO, that's easy mode. It really is. Just saying.

    Try instead commercial photography, or...
