shutter2013's recent activity

  • If I was shooting in a studio and printing up to A1 size, I'd probably prefer this to 5dsr in terms of color and skin tones. Printing larger I'd take the 5dsr.
    I'm happy-ish with my K1 though but...

  • Include the faster buffer, optimization to shoot through flickering lights, minimal shutter lag, larger viewfinder magnification, new LCD overlay etc....
    These are all pro features that help get...

  • More intelligent metering sensors, better focus, face/eye detect, dual pixel technology with smart focus pulling for video and hybrid.
    Quick turn on functionality. Hard wearing and weather sealed...

  • At ISO100 the k1 will give you IQ almost just as good as the D810 at ISO 50/64. Shooting both at ISO100, the K1 has the advantage. With Pixel shift the K1 will give you results exceeding the 645Z ...
  • I trust Roger Cigala and lenrentals crew to scientifically test. They also checked samples for average production deviation.

    Maybe consider that they tested on a bench which doesn't quite match...

  • I think he was responding to the focus point spread. However another user debunked that by putting the d810 spread on top of the K1 spread and the differences were absolutely negligible. I also ...
  • My feeling is that it is a pity that Tony felt the need to respond in the manner that he did. I would hope that he would rise above the criticism, put his hand up and say some errors that I made ...
  • He is being queried by quite a few users on why he has ignored big publications results e.g. ephotozine which demonstrate a very different result for lenses such as the 70-200, 24-70 and 15-30. I ...
  • Tamron has been designing some fantastic glass - as good as anybody elses for a long time now. On mirrorless platforms, many Zeiss FE designs owe their heritage to Tamron original designs. E.g. the ...
  • I bought the K1 without any investment in the Pentax system and I walked in with my eyes wide open. Tony's review has not changed my needs and opinion. My needs - IBIS, excellent for fashion, ...
  • The K3ii is a fantastic APSC body - probably the best available today in my opinion in terms of overall balance of capability. With faster lenses it's AFC performance is very good - the caveat is ...
  • Firstly, I feel what you are talking about is an interpretation, not a fact :) Looking solely at noise and ignoring the other benefits to color accuracy, tonality, accuity. In this scenario if you ...
  • Replied in Ricoh GR III?
    Yup - I reckon you are right. A GR III with pixel shift would be amazing and eat into the niche that Sigma has carved out with their Foveon....
  • My understanding is that it isn't the same as taking 4 bayer demosaiced and interpolated exposures and then stacking. The lack of interpolation is a fundamental difference of pixel shift making a ...
  • I think a more obvious omission on the K1 is the crappy video for the new style event photographer who also wants to provide video and stills as a service.

    Irrespective of a difference of opinion...

  • With respect to live view CDAF performance of the K1. It's not as good as the A7rii but in reasonable light, I've found it not far off the A7ii. I've found it very good actually. In low light, live...

  • BTW I completely agree with you that on sensor PDAF offers benefits in many situations where it is preferable over off sensor. However, that story needs to be tempered with the many advantages of a...

  • Rishi, respectfully taking both your opinion and the opinion of this blog as 'fact' is a big leap for me. My reasons are as follows:
    On one hand we have both a photo blog and a tech editor who...

  • My point is that there are pro's and con's to both mirrorless and DSLR approaches to AF. System AF performance is what matters and modern mirrorless are not inherently perfect for AF.
    As an aside,...

  • Without having direct access to the software algorithm that drives the overall AF and the manner in which the LUT's are used we can only speculate. Modern DSLR's most likely do not use a single set...
