  • While modern mirrorless offers options not available with DSLRs, the converse is also true.  DSLRs offer possibilities not available with mirrorless. The advantage of the DLSR is that it can have ...
  • We seem to be talking about different things. The argument was made that there was an infinite number of colors. You seem to be confusing this with the claim that there are in infinite number of ...
  • My personal idea of color is not relevant to what the chart is saying. The chart makes a distinction between "colors" and "distinguishable colors". Therefore, according to this chart, it is ...
  • This chart talks about "Distinguishable colors" or "discriminable colors".   By using a qualifier on the word "color" they are suggesting that there are more colors than a human can distinguish. Th ...
  • How would you define a "color"? Can a combination of  red and green wavelengths be the same "color" as a single yellow wavelength of light? ==== Personally, I would define color in terms of where ...
  • The issue is that pixelgenius is claiming your terminology is incorrect.  He is strongly suggesting that "color" is the wrong term.   This is an argument over the terminology you are using, not ...
  • The issue is that with Andrew's definition of color you can have multiple numeric values that all correspond to the same "color". Given two close, but different RGB values, if they look the same to ...
  • Let me see if I can save some time, and prevent this thread from getting locked. Whether or not there are a finite, or infinite number of "colors" depends on how you define colors. PixelGenius is ...
  • Correct. However, the important question is not whether there exists a scene that is outside capabilities of your gear.  The answer to that will almost certainly be that such scenes exist. The ...
  • Both mirrorless and DSLRs are good choices. If you going to discuss the differences, it really does boil down to the multi-faceted approach of the DSLR vs. the all-in-one approach of the mirrorless. ...
  • The analogy doesn't really hold up. A human without instruments might have trouble telling the difference in weight between an object that weighs 100.2 pounds and and object that weighs 100.1 ...
  • It's going to depend on how you define color. Take two Yellows that have slightly different wavelengths of light. To the human eye, they appear the same color. When we measure them, we can detect a ...
  • Another big difference is that a mirrorless camera use a single sensor for multiple functions.  That sensor can't be optimized for everything.   A DSLR uses multiple sensors, each optimized for ...
  • +1 Does it matter?   Once I have enough dynamic range to capture what I shoot, additional dynamic range won't make a visible difference in the final prints.
  • You may find that some people disagree with that statement. "color" is a matter of human perception.   If the spectral response of two objects differ by only a little bit, they may appear to the ...
  • Would you characterize the magnitude of these low level differences as being more or less significant that the processing choices selected by the user (for instance Canon's picture style feature)
  • By stopping down to f/6 you're letting in less light.  The lower exposure results in more noise (graininess). For low light photos of paintings, hold the camera parallel to the artwork, even if ...
  • I see a few possibilities (1) Camera is not sensing the sync signal to the hot shoe (2) Bad hot shoe connection to the transmitter
  • It sounds like the transmitter isn’t transmitting when you take the photo. If it’s during normal business hours in Nashville, I would give a call to the  Paul Buff people. They are very nice and ...
  • When it comes to color casts from different brands of lens, you can't directly compare the film days to digital. In the film days you and your friend were shooting with the same film.  You both got ...
