  • Replied in In practice
    Really? How, in your experience, did you measure the noise? Oh! You didn't measure. You made a visual assessment. May I suggest to you that what you assessed wasn't actually noise, but rather ...
  • Why would you want to use the same exposure on different formats? Wanting to use the same shutter speed is more understandable. The reason people might want the f/11 lenses is the same reason why ...
  • Replied in In practice
    This is where I would disagree., The are some practical purposes where it doesn't mean that. We see this in the confusion that arises when people say that since raising ISO amplifies noise it must ...
  • Replied in I was happy...
    Really? Could you provide a link to a post made by one of these guys in the past 6 months where they say this? I'm pretty sure I could find quite a few statements saying the opposite.
  • An image taken with a higher exposure will have more noise than an image taken with a lower exposure on the same camera. The mistake is to assume that an image with more noise will look noisier. In ...
  • Replied in F11 is F11
    What are "ISO extensions"? ISO 80 is not an extended ISO on a D850. It is as real as ISO 250 on an MFT body. The D850 has a true base ISO of 64. It's extended ISOs are 50, 40 and 32. All photos ...
  • Replied in F11 is F11
    Your claim about something being simply not true is correct if you apply it to the words that followed the claim, but not to the words that preceded the claim What GB wrote is correct. No it ...
  • Or thinking in terms of another format. OP was comparing formats, so it is quite appropriate for this thread. Because you are used to concepts from a different format. For instance, let's consider ...
  • Replied in F/2.8 is F/2.8
    It's a parameterized ratio. The " f " means something and since the f for MFT generally is 1/2 the f for FF, incontext f(for MFT) /2.8 is not the same as f(for FF)/2.8. We can compare military ...
  • Your use of an equals sign here is quite inappropriate. Closing down the aperture does not require you to decrease shutter speed or increase ISO. If I'm shooting show jumpers and I'm at my slowest ...
  • Speed and ISO are not visible attributes of an image, and your aperture doesn't prevent you from using a particular shutter speed. I'd suggest aperture selection directly affects four visible ...
  • Replied in Amazing talent!
    How can you tell what the exposure is just by looking at the picture? I usually need to check the EXIF. Among the factors you didn't explicitly list are DOF, noisiness and blur. Depending on what I ...
  • According to standard DOF calculations, a 50mm f/0.95 lens gives deeper DOF from a given distance than a 57mm f/1.2.
  • It seems probable to me that the camera wasn't glitching out. It was indicating that the lighting was too bright. You need to adjust your exposure or lighting intensity if that happens. I think ...
  • These all scream "DX!" to me. That would be my first thought too. The D500 is the ideal wildlife, sports and action camera, but it costs more than the D7500, and is a bit heavier. The D500 doesn't ...
  • Thanks, this is helpful information. This tells me that you are more price sensitive than I am. I tend to compare camera based on capability and features and consider price secondary. That is why I ...
  • Perhaps considering why you haven't included the D780 and the Z7 on your list will help you make a decision. Perhaps telling us why they aren't on the list will help us give you some advice.
  • Replied in F11 is F11
    GB's been at this a lot longer than I have, I owe him a debt of gratitude.
  • Replied in Huh?
    I'm sure they are, but why is that in any way relevant? Do you have any MFT lenses whose widest aperture is f/11? Would you voluntarily shoot a single BIF on MFT at f/11? I think the answers to ...
  • If I understand correctly, the problem isn't the speed at  which it takes images, but that it stops taking them after it hsa taken 5. One thing I would check is whether you have any bracketing set ...
