  • The halos around that leaf don't look like chromatic aberration fringing to me. I doubt whether Lightroom's defringing feature will have much effect on it.
  • Unfortunately, I didn't keep any of the defective images from the faulty lens I had, so I can't really compare them to yours. I wish I had kept a few of them, but it didn't occur to me that I ...
  • Taking a second look at image #1, if I were you I would check the plane of focus on the full resolution version of that image. How does it look? If you see a kind of double-image effect even at ...
  • I don't have enough experience shooting trees with X100 cameras to say for sure, but I wouldn't immediately guess that this was out of the ordinary, for the aperture you used. First, it's a tough ...
  • Your story gives one hope about our sometimes disappointing species, for sure. Several years ago, a camera company sent $4,000 worth of gear to my apartment in New York City without notifying me. ...
  • 350-year storm? I'm feeling bad for that alien lizard man who left his umbrella back in the office when he stepped out for a sandwich and is still standing under the awning waiting for the rain to...

  • Replied in interesting
    Thanks for that interesting link. I knew that Fuji was really upset by how the Toshiba deal went down, but I had not bothered to dig in to the details. Will be interesting to see what actually ...
  • I know you didn't specifically say otherwise, but your comment prompts me to note that the distribution of honesty and ethical behavior is pretty much exactly equal among the populations of ...
  • Replied in two more cents
    Well, just to throw two more cents on the fire (how's that for a jumbled metaphor!), I don't actually see mirrorless ILC cameras as that big a deal in terms of camera technology changes. It's ...
  • Replied in revolutions
    Multi-sensor array computational imaging. It's coming; only questions are when/how/who. Along with —  maybe — flat, metamaterial lenses.
  • Tex, I think people greatly overestimate how important it is to be a first-mover in a market. The history of the camera business is full of examples of late entrants to specific market segments ...
  • Were I making decisions at Nikon, I would instead work first on FF mirrorless solutions. Nikon most urgently needs to defend its position in the upper-enthusiast end of the market — it's more ...
  • Brian, do you think there's any risk using hydrogen peroxide on older lenses? I've been doing a little digging around on this issue lately because I just bought a Canon 50mm f1.8 LTM lens made in ...
  • No particular reason other than the general desire to keep things as light as possible. Thanks for pointing out the aluminum vs. brass issue; I'll consider that for sure. And your point about ...
  • I don't know anything about the NYIP program itself, so I can't comment on whether it's worth $600. The consensus on this thread seems to boil down to "you can learn photography on your own, so ...
  • Yes, I have a modest issue with dry eyes resulting from too much time staring at a computer screen (which I do for work, as well, unfortunately). So far, I can manage it fairly effectively with ...
  • Replied in 54 grams
    Mine all weigh right around 54 grams, so yours is certainly lighter. Do you mind telling me the brand?
  • Created discussion thread Lightest LTM/L39→Sony E adapter?
    I have three different LTM/L39/M39 to Sony E-mount adapters and all three strike me as a bit heavier and bulkier than really necessary. And they are all within a gram of each other in weight. I'd ...
  • Replied in you're fine
    If you buy LR6 perpetual (same as "standalone") as a download, you'll get the most recent version, which will support the X-T20. But even if you bought a LR6 DVD (if they still exist, not sure), ...
