  • This isn't directly responsive to the original question but it may help in the troubleshooting. In general cut and paste is the province of the operating system's clipboard and its settings ...
  • Replied in EVFs
    Tracking includes me, but it includes me regardless of the viewfinder. However, the increased lag intrinsic in an EVF is the essential weak point that can be dealt with by avoiding addition of ...
  • Replied in EVFs
    Not being entirely satisfied with tracking of my 7DII does not prevent me from getting a large number of good images. Slowing the tracking  of my fast moving subjects would mean far fewer images, ...
  • Replied in EVFs
    I'm not totally satisfied with AF tracking in my 7DII, but it is a wholly different issue than subject tracking. If you cannot accurately track a fast moving subject, then faster AF isn't going to ...
  • "Nice photos" was the point entirely. Sometimes a superzoom wins because of the reach as long as the conditions are right.
  • Yes, but "good" requires enough light to make the exposure sufficient to minimize noise at shutter speeds sufficient to freeze movement. Under some moderate light scenarios that in turn requires ...
  • Replied in Progress
    Wow! a $400 watch and a $1000 phone to take a "remote" Instamatic-quality photo. That's definitely progress of a sort. Funny, I've never needed to unlock my DSLR or superzoom cameras with my face ...
  • You wouldn't be letting "the machine decide on the parameters," you'd be letting an engineer who had no idea of what you want in the result be deciding the parameters. I'd rather make the decisions ...
  • Yes. You're missing several things mentioned already but which I will put my own slant on: Since my first digital point and shoot to a couple of super zooms and a DSLR, I have use in-camera aids to ...
  • My primary OS is Linux (Fedora). There are many reasons I prefer Linux, but I have to fall back to Windows for some things. Taxes are one. Upgrading my GPS maps is another. On rare occasions I use ...
  • Replied in Even blurrier
    The AA filter topic always engenders a lot of highly "detailed" misinformation--kinda like the bogus "extra detail" due to aliasing that is "achieved" by eliminating an AA filter. This whole ...
  • When I was a grad student in the early 70's I bought my first SLR, a used Mamiya with a 50mm F2 lens. It was an upgrade from an Ansco Karomat 35mm rangefinder camera I was using at that point, ...
  • ....snip Whoa, beware the use of sarcasm about cereal boxes and cameras. I know from personal experience that sarcasm can be easily missed and the discussion can quickly swing off into paragraphs ...
  • Agreed, except I might suggest that there are two concepts: 1) a great many subjects under a great many conditions of lighting and motion will require good gear with performance in several areas ...
  • From pressing the shutter release to getting the image is what most folks I know call shutter lag. The point is that mirror flap has nothing to do with viewfinder lag and you seem to be conflating ...
  • Right. Show no proof, just claim that you know it. I've been doing photography for 63 years. I did my own darkroom work for decades and had nice film gear that I still own out of sentimentality. I ...
  • Shutter lag is different entirely from viewfinder lag. Since you don't understand that you're point is worthless and your "contributions"  are also. Ignorance abounds here and yours is ...
  • Slooooowly moving and stationary. No challenge at all I'm sure for the lag of a mirrorless EVF but that does nothing for your point. Hey, if your mirrorless allows you to follow all of your pokey, ...
  • I understand your zealotry and I also understand that you actually have no concept of the conditions under which those photos are taken. Baloney. Until I see someone shoot a falcon flying at high ...
  • The EVF vs OVF debate is somewhat like the smartphones-will-take-the-DSLR-market "real soon now<TM>." The protagonists of the "new paradigm" do not accept the same set of facts as the "nah, it's ...
