  • Yes that's what I was wondering... see https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/73719/what-factors-affect-the-dynamic-range-of-a-sensor 'Generally speaking, larger photo detectors, and greater bit ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes - the fact that the OP was having a bit of a laugh at the expense of all the 'DSLRs are dead' threads was pretty obvious. Or so I thought.  A pity that some of the people posting sneering ...
  • Yes - exactly . Look at this article which shows a nice example: http://www.boostyourphotography.com/2013/09/zooming-vs-cropping.html - near the bottom are two images, one taken using a lens at ...
  • Nope. If you take pics with 50mm and 100mm lenses from the same position (and same f-stop), crop out the central 25% of the first image and expand it to the same size as the first image and look ...
  • Yes, it does, if the photographer has not moved.  A shot taken with a telephoto lens, and then a shot taken from the same position with a wide-angle lens but cropped to match the coverage of the ...
  • Replied in cheese
    That works surprisingly well in many cases: (1) Taking cheese gives me a good feeling ... (2) I become more positive about myself when I take cheese
  • It seems pretty clear, unless you don't like double negatives: it means precisely what you wrote in your opening post: i.e. '...that a camera manufacturer (can) make a fixed lens camera with ...
  • You are very free with 'must'. Why 'must' it? Because it would suit you? Engage brain for a second. DPR has existed for nearly 20 years without charging for content and (apparently) is one of the ...
  • Can you post the results with exposure information included? One possibility is that the transmission of the lenses may be slightly different despite the same f-number (i.e. T-stop rather than ...
  • What do you mean by 'better photos'? The 18-55 and 55-300 lenses are pretty decent; their main limitation is that they won't be very good in low light because of the relatively narrow aperture ...
  • Could be one of two things: (i) most lenses are sharper in the centre than at the edge, and if you look critically you will find that images are less sharp at edges / corners than they are in the ...
  • What an extraordinary sense of personal entitlement you have.  Nobody who is on someone else's payroll owes you anything, unless you pay for it. uh.... no.  They really don't.  It's a resource paid ...
  • If you get too close with a short focal length lens you will find it difficult to have the corners and centre in focus at the same time, as the corners of the tapestry will be much further away ...
  • Yes (yesterday, London to Delhi); and no, no problems.  I didn't even have to take the DSLR out of the bag (as I do wit the laptop). Best wishes Mike
  • If you crop an image from a large sensor down to what a smaller sensor would have captured, you will get the image quality based on the smaller amount of light used in the final image - i.e. the ...
  • Replied in DNG file size
    this might help: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/982583 Best wishes
  • Thank you gentlemen... that's what I suspected but it's good to know I haven't missed any other possibilities. Best wishes
  • Sounds very familiar.  It's difficult to maintain interest unless there is a specific reason.  I take far fewer pictures than I used to when the hobby was new and exciting.  The two things that ...
  • Created discussion thread replacement for DAL 55-300
    Hello all... I managed to break the plastic mount on my DA-L 55-300.  It cost peanuts (£150 UK) several years ago and was very good, apart from the slow and noisy screw drive AF which would scare ...
  • Not unsurprising for a kit lens. Look at some reviews: e.g. http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_e_pz_16_50mm_f3_5_5_6_oss_review/conclusion/ 'In the central areas of the frame, the lens ...
