  • Well, if you get a D610 none of your lenses will cover the frame. So you'll need all new lenses. That's a major expense compared to getting a D7200, where all you'll need is the $1050 camera body. ...
  • Yeah, I know Lightroom doesn't care but I will play with sharpening and noise reduction after doing everything else because that stuff affects how intrusive the noise is; if I've boosted shadows a ...
  • I use Lightroom, which is non-destructive. So you can apply any edit at any time and it doesn't make any difference to the final result. Most of the time, I crop first. This would be to get to a ...
  • Replied in Raw for sure
    While Lightroom will edit both raw and jpg files, there's more data in a raw file. This allows you to edit more aggressively before the image breaks down. So you can pull up shadows and eliminate ...
  • I can ruin an image without having to use those tools. Are the images the OP linked to supposed to be good?
  • In your gear list, I see several very good DSLR's. Do you find the images they produce inferior to ones generated on film? What film is that? Can you describe how digital photography is inferior to ...
  • Keine Worte
  • Most current DX Nikons have 24MP. That should be plenty. You can use fast primes with FX or DX. Current DX Nikons are pretty good up to ISO 3200. How much do you need?
  • Replied in Metaphysics
    The f/number is most certainly dimensionless. I am not moved by the "different quality" of pi. That's kind of a metaphysical argument. Pi has no units, f/number has no units. Reynolds number has no ...
  • Strangely enough, my wife just had the same problem. Image Capture didn't see her phone. She switched to another USB socket and it worked. The first USB socket is otherwise functional.
  • Replied in One quibble
    The f/number is most certainly dimensionless. Like pi, it is a ratio: the ratio of the entrance pupil diameter to the focal length. While both the entrance pupil and focal length have the unit of ...
  • I have a D300 which I bought with a 16-85. As far as I can tell, the D300 has the same sensor as a D2X. I really like the 16-85. It's quite good at 16mm stopped down a bit. Very sharp, good ...
  • I'm even better off than a 200mm f/2 owner; I have a friend who owns one and lets me use it. Positives of the 200mm f/2: It's perfect Negatives of the 200mm f/2: It weighs a ton
  • But they didn't have 18-300's. One may expect some severe design compromises to allow a 16X zoom range. Massive breathing might be the best way out. Note that the Sigma does focus down to 15", ...
  • Nailed it. Thank you for the burst of clarity. It's not just we (I). It's us. The OP is taking an undeserved beating for trying to be a good person. It would be better if he could erase this entire ...
  • Replied in Sure thing
    Well, the Brenziger technique simulates a photo taken with a very fast lens. You get the effect of using, say, a 20mm f/0.5 or a 50mm f/0.8. You can't find those. But if you're willing to go to ...
  • For the same exposure time, both sensors will receive the same amount of light. This is a consequence of the aperture being the same. But the FF frame will receive half as much light per unit ...
  • That could well be true but does not mean anything. Those are just your lenses. This is Nikon's glossary of lens designations: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9919/~/glossary-o ...
  • I hardly ever work on images in Photoshop, partly because I'm not very good at it. But I tend not to do pixel-level editing anyway. I use photoshop to stack focus, do HDR, or collect images to ...
  • I initially thought the same thing but the lens doesn't seem to have an aperture diaphragm.
