  • I agree with that. I started to edit my post to mention that mirrorless was a bit of a different deal all together. I was also consider "rangefinder style" cameras like Fuji also a different...

  • I never said "no serious photographers use APS-C". I said that most pros had moved to FF. Yes those manufactures are coming out with new high end APS-C bodies, that's a good thing, they had fallen...

  • Possibly. I get that Sigma for thinking outside the box with some of it's new art lenses, and trying to put something a little different on the market. On the other hand, I'm a little confused that...

  • Why? I may be wrong, I'm not a optics engineer, but I would think that it would be similar in size/complexity to designing a FF 70-200 2.8, assuming of course that the lens is only required to...

  • I guess it would have increased the size and price of the lens somewhat, but it would have been nice if they could have gotten to 125 or so on the long end without having to make any IQ sacrifices....

  • Cameracist: I doubt that would account for much of what mosc is getting at. 8-10 years ago that would have been true, as a lot of pros and most serious amateurs had moved from film to APS-C., but...

  • I have to respectfully disagree. Since it was discontinued just before I was born, I never saw the man-made Glacier Point event either, but I have stood absolutely awe-struck watching the natural...

  • I don't think the birds look more like gnats, though I can see how you might want to clean it up by removing.

  • You may have tried this, but if not, if your 580 ever does that again, remove it from the camera and reseat it in the hot shoe carefully. If it is not making a good connection with one of the ...
  • I would think that would be difficult in the way I was thinking since the camera is going to try to move the shutter and aperture in opposite directions to still maintain acceptable exposure. In ...
  • Pretty much what I expected it was doing. Essentially by changing the rear dial, you are adjusting the "bias" logic the Program mode uses to determine the relationship between shutter and ...
  • Replied in Even simpler
    Perfect
  • Honestly, what you are saying doesn't make since to me. In P mode you don't control both, you really don't control either . The only way to control both is Manual mode. Turning the back dial in P ...
  • This seems overly confusing to me. Aperture and F-stop are the same thing for practical purposes so why bring it up. Also, as others have pointed out, increasingly some compacts are using APS-C or ...
  • Indeed, the D500 looks to be a DX beast, but given the coinciding large difference in price, that could be a factor for someone debating the D5500 vs 7200 (obviously price is an issue or the ...
  • Even if they aren't, the viewfinder and build quality alone would justify.
  • I try to as well.  Much of the work I do now involves HDR and stitching and with that you can't afford to have the camera change anything you didn't notice was changing.
  • I do, but often I don't want to change both. I'm not saying I haven't ever shot in P mode, especially when it's not a professional job like a birthday party or something. Among the 3 variables of ...
  • The D7200 would elevate many of the cons, but of course have a few of it's own, like continuous shooting speed. Unless you are shooting a lot of action sports, that might not matter though.
  • To each his own, but I find it difficult to imagine shooting more than occasionally using Program mode, much less exclusively, it's just to limiting and difficult to adjust. Likewise, Manual, ...
