  • I hope you have a nice day too, and good luck shopping for that GX850 or PEN-F with a tiny 20mm F/1.7 lens.
  • Only an idiot would expect a GM1 to be weather sealed, perform as fast, and have the battery life of the EM1 mark Ii. While you were sleeping Olympus released an EM5 mark Ii and a smaller PEN model ...
  • Wow, you are seriously confused. The tiny M4/3 lenses are still there. The 12-32mm zoom, the 20mm F/1.7, etc., they are all still there. And since you might live under a rock and missed it, ...
  • That article was from almost 3 weeks ago, and was discussed in the open forum. I agree with is list but with one large caveat... (1) Sony FE (2) Olympus m4/3 (3) Canon EOS M
  • Replied in Crappy OVFs
    The truth is most OVFs are crappy penta-mirrors that are like looking down a long dark tunnel. Manufacturers stick them on cameras because the nicer more functional EVFs don't work well when ...
  • What you meant to say is most  current EVFs are light-years better than pentaprism OVFs found on 90% of DSLRs sold. Those OVFs are a waste and can't even work with video or display the actual exposure.
  • Replied in How it works...
    Sony makes the sensors.  They own several patents and offer to let others use them for a price.  At the same time other companies have patents of their own and use them in the Sony manufactured ...
  • Replied in So I am right.
    So I am correct.  Even the largest sensors still need extra blurring sometimes. And why would you????  If you are good enough to pick the proper background or smart enough to understand things such ...
  • We are talking about using external microphones.  No matter what it won't be small.  Even without an external recorder. But you can keep the recorder in a pocket or even better, have someone else ...
  • Replied in LAEA4 + Minolta
    In lower light the LAEA4 can out perform your native C-AF auto focusing.    It turns your camera into a DSLT.  Then you can buy a Sigma, Tamron or Minolta F2.8 zoom for under $1000. And spend what ...
  • Obviously you've never done portrait work and are clueless about the Photoshop Blur tool. LoL! Bet you didn't know medium format shooters often "soften or blur after the fact". You didn't think ...
  • Replied in Search ebay
    I don't know. I think it is more of a chemical reaction problem. Look on eBay and you will often see cameras with this problem...And if you don't use the LCD they are a real bargain.
  • It is a ridulous statement.  What people mean to say is larger formats can blur out more of an image. But calling it control of DoF is silly.  Most of the time shallow DoF is a serious problem.  If ...
  • Replied in Best friends
    I bet some will complain about the hair and other things, but I think the whole picture is wonderful.
  • Replied in The best part...
    I bought my A7RII for several hundred less than other used ones for sale because someone did the same thing and thought the whole LCD was ruined. I've seen several A7 series cameras with damaged ...
  • There are many inexpensive external recorders.  Many come with nice microphones too.  The sound recorded will be infinitely better than any in-camera recording.  Just attach the mic to the flash ...
  • It is kind of silly isn't it. Any camera can control the DoF and get the subject or subjects in focus. Larger formats have problems not being able to get subjects in focus with the widest apertures. ...
  • There sure are a lot of APSC only users showing up here. APSC is in a bad spot.  It performs more than stop worse than FF, but doesn't have much of an advantage of smaller lens size. M43 on the ...
  • I would not hold my breath.  But since you can adapt Canon and Minolta lenses, it is not a big deal..  if you want the latest from Sigma or Tamron try a Canon adapter.  Or save some money and try ...
  • Replied in Lol!
    I like the way you removed what you previously said in your reply. It was kind of embarrassing. In the future read posts and remember what you said before replying.
