  • I agree with you on this point. Both with the logic that if you make adjustments you need the ability to make adjustments, and also with the point that sometimes you making adjustments is optimal. ...
  • No, in fact I went out of my way to avoid assuming. That's why I repeatedly asked questions about what you meant. All I have to go by is what you said . And what you actually said, despite multiple ...
  • yes. Depends on the lens. These days most lenses with OIS will give you much more between 2 -4 stops in most cases. Depends on the tripod. Most are not perfectly motionless and cheap ones may ...
  • Yes shooting at ISO 800 and an exposure of EV n will give you better shadows (and everything else too - except blown highlights- but not by as much) than shooting at ISO 400 and EV n. I'm not sure ...
  • Nose to ears is typically between 10 and 15 cm. Call the average 12.5cm. Eyes somewhere between the two. 12.5cm is 16.7% difference and that definitely is noticeable. Try taking a few portraits ...
  • It is precisely because I thought you might be under such a misapprehension that I raised the point. The chart means you will get better shadow improvement at the same exposure . You will not get ...
  • So you have a low light situation. Are you saying you'd rather manually set the ISO to 800 than let the camera set it to 400 and use one stop  slower shutter? Yes. And when does it make sense? I'd ...
  • No. Because most distortion is not the product of the focal length, but rather of other factors.  One of those factors is shooting distance. 85mm is a lot longer than the focal lengths you are ...
  • Can you give examples of when you would set ISO to get that optimum, instead of using Auto-ISO? I sure hope you aren't setting ISO 800 1/1000 f/5.6 instead of ISO 100 1/125 f/5.6 when 1/125 is ...
  • I'd expect a difference, too. I don't know how easy it would be to see. Until you learn to properly sharpen you RAW photos, I'm not sure you'd see much difference. Try comparing SOOC JPEGs.
  • I find the focal length too limited. If it was for me, this is the combo I'd choose, because I know I'm going to want a focal length longer than 140mm. But that's because I shoot subjects that need ...
  • That depends on what one means by a camera taking in light. That's right, but the amount of light that a lens lets through is not the same as the amount of light that the camera captures, which is ...
  • much better All RAW images need sharpening in development. Learn about multi-stage sharpening. Your camera might be suffering from shutter shock at the shutter speeds you are using Try widening the ...
  • It all depends on how tightly you are framing. The tighter the framing, the faster the shutter required. 1/250 would indeed be too slow if you are tightly framing a single player, eg. in vertical ...
  • Welcome to DPR, Lucas. For studio work, I'd suggest you learn about lighting and then acquire some good lighting equipment. Be prepared to spend rather more than you did on your camera and lenses. ...
  • Replied in Don't downsize?
    It is kind of hard to evaluate the sharpness of an image when it is only 1 MP. Try looking at (and linking here) a full 24MP image.
  • I feel extremely confident that Nikon will release a dLSR successor to the D5. It will most likely be called the D6, though D5s is a slight possibility. I also think there is quite a good ...
  • Always prefer to slow the shutter, but not so much that you risk subject motion blur or camera motion blur. When those become a risk, let ISO rise instead. 1/1000 might have been chosen if her hair ...
  • If you are going to make that statement in reply to my post you should call out the particular errors you think I have made. Indeed. Many in this thread are, but not those by me, Abe R. Ration, or ...
  • D50 in 2005 I think.
