  • There are many reasons why AF might not always give the results you want. A camera can have trouble getting focus when the subject has little contrast between parts of itself or between itself and ...
  • A given ISO will not give the same degree of objectionable nosiness in all images. Noise will be more visible when there are large plain areas, or large amounts of dark areas. The noise from a ...
  • Many people would find it too long / not wide enough. A 35mm and an 85mm were a pretty classic two-lens combination on full frame. They were the common focal lengths one step above and one step ...
  • Higher ISO doesn't cause more noise. Lower exposure causes noisier images. (Exposure is the amount of light falling on the sensor per unit area. It is controlled by the light in the scene, the ...

    What were you shooting on Easter Monday? What settings, light levels, focal lengths, subjects, subject distances? FZ1000 can be expected to AF faster than a D5600 in some circumstances, not in others.

    ... at that one location Pre-focussing menas you don't have to worry about how long it takes to focus. However, it limits you to taking photos at the one pre-focussed location. I certainly agree ...

    Yes he'll have to pre-focus, and that means shots in just one location. No shot of her entering the stage. No shot of her greeting a prof along the way. Just the diploma/handshake. The whole lens ...
  • He doesn't need best image stabilization because his subject will be moving. He should shoot at 1/125 or faster. He does need some IS (about 1.3 stops), and the VR on Nikon lenses is more than ...
  • Bounce it off a white surface. Many indoor ceilings are white. Walls are often not white.
  • Replied in Overkill....
    Sure. You get no more than what you pay for. Even IF you mange to get focus (not at all a sure thing trying to focus manually on a D5600 in low light) the shot will probably be less sharp. Assuming ...
  • To frame your wife standing to receive her diploma, you might want to frame an area about 1.4m wide by 2.1m tall (portrait orientation). To do this at a distance of ~23m (75') you would need a ...
  • Replied in Why?
    Canon FF does better than m43 at high ISO if you let its larger sensor capture more light . Sony, Nikon and Pentax FF do better then m43 at any ISO, if you let their larger sensors capture more ...
  • Ah, you posted a crop! I checked the EXIF. (1) As I suspected, the E-M5II image was made at a higher exposure. (2) The E-M5II image was ...
  • When I go to this page and select the E-M2II and the 80D I get a list of 25 images, none of which is the one you showed upthread . What this is a is a classic example of why the IR images of are ...
  • I have no doubt they are actual pics from the IR website. Of course. Was the E-M5II Image taken using the multiple exposure feature? That alone would explain why it is so good. But it would render ...
  • It all depens on how you define image quality. A lot of people use the term in the narrow sense of the quality of image that the sensor is able to produce from a controlled test scene under ideal ...
  • Dona;d's E-M5II shot could be a multiple exposure. And of course. Imaging Resources is notorious for using unequal exposures in it entirely non-reliable comparisons. But Donald doesn't provide us ...
  • Replied in Two choices
    $1,000 - $1,100 used at B&H today. Why are you suggesting a body that has lower resolution, worse DR, and less reach per focal length than the bodies he is looking at? That lens alone will eat his ...
  • no one camera will be the most accurate (or the fastest) undet a full range of possible conditions. The camera that is most accurate for a single shot of a high contrast stationary subject  in good ...
  • This is, of course the nonsensical howling of a dSLR fanboy and can safely be ignored, The Sony a6500 and the Fuji XT-2 produce higher IQ than any Canon APS-C sensor, and are in the same class as ...
