  • The T3 was my first SLR, although mine was the slightly older version with the pounty-top and detatchable hotshoe (above is sometimes referred to as the nT3).
  • I understand that the Voigtlander name is currently leased to Cosina.

  • The aperture is often controlled by the camera and there is a chance that the camera might not recognise an intermediate value. Most cameras recognise 1/3 of a stop intervals, but won't allow you ...
  • 1. I doubt that Canon (or anyone) are sitting on their butts.
    2. Remember we are talking about the differences between the speed of a greyhound and that of a hare - that particular bits of kit are...

  • I'm not aware of any major quality issues...

  • Ansel Adams used cameras without eye-level viewfinders all the time...

  • Replied in Warranty?
    Might be an idea to check that they are ok for you to open up the case with the warranty. In truth, with a pc, if it runs fine for the first week, it will probably not break down during the ...
  • Replied in Warranty?
    Both machines look fine. Assuming you are processing stills photographs, probably anything performaing like an i5 or above should be fine. I'm running a 6 year old AMD X6 processor (roughly ...
  • On UK prices - cheapest available full-frame camera: Nikon D610 - £1200 Canon 6d - £1100 Sony A7 - £800 They can be cheaper, but if you add in stuff like more MP, IBIS, PD AF etc, the costs go up
  • For me, I never met a macro I didn't like... AF or MF you can't go too far wrong..
  • I don't think those are paid accounts, people just get very tribal when it comes to their brand.
  • Whatever the original meaning was, the current usage is clear - using something without permission (which also works for pirate radio, as they use radio bandwidth without permission). In a similar ...
  • I'm not so sure - you have a lot of precision moving parts in such an assembly and they have to be assembled at tolerances that one light path goes to an AF assembly, while another goes to a ...
  • ..I confess I'm always rather drawn towards the unusual. I think if you are drawn towards the unusual you need to do a bit of homework beforehand, but it often rewards with some great experiences. ...
  • Wrong, immoral, risky.
  • So if they do offer a mirrorless camera that uses an adapter to use all those existing lenses you have you will switch systems entirely? Where would you go? Why would you do that? You would be ...
  • It applies to some (but not all) lenses. With mirrorless there is less of a need to add bulk by using retrofocus designs. Examples of small full-frame lenses that exploit a mirrorless design would ...
  • Strange set of poll options... Not sure of relevance of exclusivity of all options...
  • The control wheels came in and the split image focusing screens went long before digital. I would suggest that using a legacy manual focus lens on a Sony A7 gives the opportunity to use the focus ...
