  • My only Nikon 1 body is a J1 (I bought it because I picked up the underwater housing on clearance from B&H). The sensor is pretty mediocre (I have an RX100 for comparison) and the UI isn't exactly ...
  • Do your friends have ESP ? This is just FUD. It doesn't seem that way to most. Good question ! One possibility is that Sony feels there are enough APS-C lenses, particularly when FE lenses can be ...
  • Exactly. And while gphome might be assuming shooting from the same location, you can get the same perspective/compression with different focal lengths as well. You'll just have different framing ...
  • He was shooting handheld with two different cameras, one using crop mode on a FF and doing his best to eyeball the composition - he admitted to slight differences in perspective for this reason. - ...
  • Yes.  In the examples you looked at, the various lenses would have been shot from different distances. Perspective (and "compression") is entirely due to distance.  It just happens that we ...
  • You must have missed the 9.732 threads comparing the pros & cons of mirrorless and DSLRs.  There's more to mirrorless than "slightly smaller". - Dennis -- Gallery at http://kingofthebeasts.smugmug.com
  • I've been doing everything in LR so long, I forgot about that ... - Dennis -- Gallery at http://kingofthebeasts.smugmug.com
  • I've seen accidentally overexposed images, I've seen intentionally bright images ... can't say I've ever looked at an image and said - that must have been taken by an "ETTR person" who didn't tone ...
  • I frequently try the clarity slider on images and sometimes I like what I see for a few seconds, then it quickly seems "overdone" and I bring it back to zero. But once in a while, it seems right. ...
  • Correction - as I mentioned later in my post, it's the A6000 I own, not the A6300 ... but sizewise, about the same. It's interesting ... video is an issue. I bought a dedicated camcorder to record ...
  • Benchmark or outlier ? It's often referred to as "fiddly" and other manufacturers are choosing to make bigger cameras. FWIW, I own an A6300 and it's very nice with the most compact lenses, but ...
  • Looks like there's also some desaturation, maybe using "vibrance" or maybe selective, darkening and desaturating greens. (1) Dennis -- Gallery at http://kingofthebeasts.smugmug.com
  • So if that was your point, why create a thread titled "Bright aperture more advantage than bigger sensor" ? Seems you're either a troll or hungry for attention. Because a thread titled "a point & ...
  • And a car is just a car. (1) Dennis -- Gallery at http://kingofthebeasts.smugmug.com
  • I'm all for it. I've taken to perspective-corrected images lately and would love playing with something like that - in part, for the reason you describe (taking my time with photography). But I ...
  • Yes, and higher cost, trying to get good quality out to the edges of a wide angle lens designed for a big image circle. That's why quality OEM t/s lenses are very expensive and cheaper, 3rd party ...
  • I guess you could easily extend that: If I shoot m43 what do I care about the angle of view or the depth of field of the FF lens ? Equivalence is only of interest when you have some reason to ...
  • First, typically, with such a WA, there isn't a primary subject, but a entire frame worth of composition, and moving back to capture more drastically changes what's in the frame. Second, depending ...
  • Replied in 80D
    And yet, other people do shoot jpeg and manage to clobber phone quality with their DSLRs. Meanwhile, Apple is adding raw support after all these years. Guess they must be getting worse at taking ...
  • I don't know the specs on the sensor or lens in that camera ... but at 100%, there's shadow noise at ISO 64, a lack of detail and sharpening artifacts ... it's a 10MP file, but looks like a ...
