  • Strange post you wrote there. You went from a 5D II to a 5D IV, and you can't understand why people upgrade? Have you not noticed the rather better focus system on the 5D IV? Do you not think that ...
  • Elsewhere you said that you were "definitely underwhelmed with its AF and high ISO performance.", but like you said, it hasn't been tested yet. How do you know how it's AF and high ISO...

  • It might be worth remembering that the pixel pitch of the D850 is about the same as that of the D500, so technically (for any given lens), you can pretty much get the same number of pixels on...

  • The eagle shot is taken with a 500 f/4 and a 1.4x TC, so I'm not surprised it's a little lacking in total sharpness.

  • Yawn! Maybe you don't understand how the grey business works. Grey imports are cameras that are sourced in foreign countries. Could be Thailand. Could be Spain. Could be Hong Kong. Sometimes those ...
  • I've bought several things from HDEW myself. I've been mostly happy, although one camera (a Nikon D7100) had a problem where the clock ran fast by about 5 seconds per day. Since it was purely a ...
  • I was just talking about cameras. But o.k. :-)
  • But like I said, a 6DII cost the same here as it does in most other countries. That some people import them from countries where the price is necessarily lower and don't pay duty or tax has ...
  • Has it occurred to you that the price of £1680 (excluding VAT) is actually less than the price at B&H (excluding sales tax) in the USA? The current exchange rate puts £1680 at around about $2150. S ...
  • But it is $2000 at B&H in the USA, and that price excludes sales tax. So yes, it's not a bad price.
  • The cheapest I've seen it with a valid manufacturer warranty is amazon's £1680, although that's pre-order only. Where have you seen it for so little? I can't remember what the deal is with Canon ...
  • Actually, according to lenscore.org, all the latest Nikkor tele primes (200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800) out resolve the latest Canon equivalents.
  • See, that's what's so weird. "All of them were lacking in some ergo's and easy menu navigation". Well, I won't necessarily argue about the menus, but really, when you snatch up a Canon DSLR with a ...
  • That's one part of it. I think there is a kind of fanboyish defence of things like haptics and ergonomics, which, as most things "fanboyish" are, is childish. All the major camera manufacturers ...
  • If you select "Easy Exposure Compensation", which I think is custom setting b4 on the D800E, you can change EC with the command dial without having to press any buttons. You can choose to have EC ...
  • Commented on article Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review

    It really looks like Canon are just doing their own thing completely regardless of the competition. It's a bit odd to see this kind of performance in a £2000 camera, when a £1200 7DII is simply so...

  • Select "Double-Click Edits Camera Raw Settings in Bridge" in Bridge prefs to have a raw file open in ACR within Bridge without using Photoshop. You can then double click an image in Bridge to open...

  • Bridge -> ACR is how I've worked for ages, and I see little reason to work any other way.

    I think that too many people think that Bridge forces you to use Photoshop to get anything done, but you...

  • Replied in Conversely...
    Right, but why does it make a difference HOW higher DR is achieved? Your comment about "cartoony looking image" suggests that you don't like compressing DR, but it's a simple truth that most photos ...
