I don't post photos or personal info here to avoid trolls making a nuisance in real life. My fabulous gear list is not intended to be 100% accurate or up-to-date.

  • Not angry. Just puzzled by the odd analogy. If someone tells you, yes, the Canon RP is the Barbie Doll of mirrorless, or tells you that, no, it isn't the Barbie Doll of mirrorless ... what then? Every
  • You wanted updates in resolution and AF. Isn't that what Canon gave you with the new EF 85/1.4 and the the upcoming RF 85/1.2?  Your example shots are all stopped down a bit, so does f/1.2 even matter?
  • I have no idea what you're saying or why it would matter.  Does their marketing strategy, whatever it may be, somehow concern you?  Is it going to affect your photography somehow?  Do you envision ...
  • @Sir 7 A camera is never solely directed at *one* type of buyer. It's directed at whoever wants to buy it. That includes beginners, pros and everybody else. It's a tool to make pictures and lots...

  • Too bad you don't see it. I could quote lots of examples of his inflammatory statements, like: "Nikon seems to look at its customers as annoyances." "Dollar-for-dollar, the Sony A7 III is the ...
  • Replied in no need
    Actually?  That's just one more example of the frequent "Look what my Sony can do!" posts on the Canon forums. Constant Sony Promotion
  • Why don't you write your own conclusions instead of promoting that web site?   His statements are always over the top ridiculous and inflammatory by design — designed to get people riled up, and ...

    That's the only spot in the WHOLE CITY where you could shoot?  The only time of day?  The only composition?  Just that particular one right there?  Some heavy-duty restrictions on your movement ...
  • Replied in no need
    Of course, but that's the light YOU chose. That's the composition YOU chose. You had the camera in your hands. You could direct the model. And yet you chose to put her in a spot where here hair ...

    In that situation one exposes for the subject, not for the sky.  The sky is the least important thing in the photo.  If you were using a handheld light meter, you would put it in front of the ...
  • Replied in no need
    I'm frankly tired of all of the Sony-fed obsessions. Everyday there's a new thread in which a few Sony people try to promote their Sony cameras. "I had to push this photo X stops and push the ...

    Is that sky somehow better because it's gray instead of white? Times have changed?  Check out engagements by Jose Villa, the most successful wedding photographer of our time: https://josevillablog. ...
  • Replied in no need
    That's a portrait, not a wedding.  So you can pick the location, the angle, the time of day, etc.  You are in control of everything about the photo.  Why not pick a time and place when the light ...
  • Replied in Many
    Fill flash set at -3 to -2 doesn't create any obvious artificial light look, or any harsh shadows, but it's enough to brighten the darkest parts of a portrait.  Also, it's ok to blow out parts of ...
  • You forgot to mention: (1) 5-kilometer Eye Tracking (2) Animal & Insect Eye Tracking (3) Back-of-Head Tracking (4) Star ...
  • @Yandrosxx The RF lens system is not going to be giant. Don't be silly. It will certainly have a mix of lenses sizes, just like the EF system. On average, the lenses will be a little smaller...

  • I probably will buy it at some point. For a long time I wanted a full-frame digital camera that was THIS small & light. The last time that full frame cameras were this small & light was in the...

  • Right ... so Canon is hallucinating ... and nobody will actually buy this $1300 camera. You must know everything better than Canon then. In case you had not noticed, Canon offers a camera for...

  • What is not "usable" about the 4K?  The camera does 4K?  I gather you lose the dual pixel autofocus.  But you can focus manually.  Isn't that what video professionals do anyway?
  • As the article above says, "The EOS RP combines a large sensor, simple interface and excellent JPEG color, making it easy to shoot in even the most unexpected situation." So, probably a good...
