  • a flash firing directly into the eyes of a dog (or cat) is not just a problem of 'red eyes' as with humans! Their eyes are much more sensitive and may suffer permanent damage!!! You may want to use ...
  • was helpful taking a few not-so-bad pics:
  • Replied in Example
    Leonard, after viewing at your example, I went to review my own landscapes from the RX100 III. Found no objectionable sharpness degradation there. And I can say, if 'my' corners were so bad, I ...
  • Totally agreed. Fuji X series (both fixed lens X100n and ILC's) may offer you a more satisfactory 'photographic experience' especially in 'street'. IQ is outstanding. RX100 however (III and upper) ...
  • What you absolutely need for getting decent performance and IQ from 1" size sensor are fast lenses (in the f/1.2 - f/2 range). Fast standard zooms is what Nikon failed to deliver in their CX line. ...
  • RX100's are 'solid looking' cameras. However not splash-proof not dust-proof, not bump-proof (telescoping lens, pop-up viewfinder, articulated screen..) If you deem the risk is high... Buying kind ...
  • Did I ever praise my 1" compact as the 'sacred Graal'? No. I simply observed (in reply to those trashing 'small sensor cameras')  that its performances ('equivalence' and low light capability) are ...
  • Great feature? You can crop with much higher precision in any image editing tool, and just press 'Undo' if you are not satisfied with the result...
  • Then... live THERE, breath the coal smoke, enjoy warmth, and be happy.
  • Can you quote examples of industrial-scale coal-fired power generation plant whose emissions are actually 'drastically reduced' so that there is negligible impact on air quality?
  • I agree it is stupid by a power producing company to get to the (probably much overdue) end-of-life of a giant plant without having a planned and readily available substitute. (If the news is true) ...
  • So, Germans are stupid to invest in this technology? BTW: not the only one of this kind being studied here in Europe... Emissions from coal and oil fired power plants KILL people (as well as kill ...
  • Are Germans "stupid" ... or your knowledge of new technologies is just a bit outdated? Look: https://qz.com/823054/germany-wind-turbine-hydroelectric-batteries/ And: "Roughly 27 percent of ...
  • Latest incarnation of the "semitransparent mirror" concept is Sony SLT a99. Very impressive performances! You can find its review here: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sony-slt-a99-ii It uses an ...
  • "CHEESE" in order to get them smiling!
  • Exactly! it was taken by yourself, using your skill, using equipment chosen and bought by you, not funded by taxpayers. IMHO all this builds an emotional value of your moonscape much higher than ...
  • No offence, but... Where is the crucial technical merit of your moon pics? Here you can find a higher rez one: https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/apollo/40th/images/apollo_image_25.html Yet it was ...
  • Please read what I wrote. ISO 1600 with 1" sensor vs ISO 6400 with APS-C. We might agree that both are 'bad enough' the same? Or we can consider ISO 400 vs ISO 1600, etc.
  • On RX100 III You just set up the Fn button, and learn to use it (it's simple!) and can forget about menu layout. Incorporated (good quality!) EVF, faster lens, WA to 24 mm eq. and better video is ...
