  • Yes, if I had some pictures that were reasonably sharp away from the center I'd be completely happy with the camera and would even make some prints. But I don't have any like that. I converted from ...

    There is an adapter that you can put on the back of the lens which has a filter thread; that's a Nikon BR-3: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/37172-REG/Nikon_2629_BR_3_Mount_Adapter_Ring.html ...
  • Did they invent that or did Sony come out with 1" sensors first? Anyway, the Nikon 1 always seemed to be too expensive for what you got. It would have done much better at half the price. Of ...

    I have an RX100M3, which is supposed to have the same lens that you have. Here are some 100%crops from an image: Cropped from the center Cropped from the corner The sharpness is fine in the center ...
  • I never noticed it was there but yup, it's a Save As option. I saved a file as Photoshop Raw and, indeed, when I opened it, it was black and white and messed up. Looking at the description of the ...
  • Not my style; people have different tastes. I would normally do a seascape like this: But if I lighten it and reduce contrast, it looks like this: Of course, if I actually liked the high key look, ...
  • I can get stuff to look like that by lightening them by a a stop and a half in Lightroom. Not what I really want to see. Maybe his monitor isn't bright enough.
  • Replied in No worries
    Your points are well-taken. I don't go out on bike rides looking to produce saleable landscape images but I sometimes encounter quite dramatic scenes that would make nice prints if they weren't ...
  • No rage, but I have this Sony RX100. Supposed to have a good lens. Has a Zeiss label on it. Who knows what Zeiss charged Sony for each label. Anyway, I carry it on bicycle rides because I don't ...
  • compliment: a polite expression of praise or admiration complement: add to in a way that enhances or improves it Now if he wanted a camera to excoriate his T5, that would have been harder.

    The nodal point is not relevant to this discussion. You measure focal length from the second principal point (or plane). The second principal point in a retrofocus lens is typically behind the rear ...
  • That's the worst diagram I have ever seen. The red lines make no sense at all. As noted in Roger's web page, a lens with a given focal length can be very near or very far from the sensor. Optics is ...
  • Not great. You have the flange distance right but not the focal length. What's the "converging point" of a lens? The focal length is defined as the distance between the second principal point of a ...
  • Do you want a camera to carry with the Canon or instead of the Canon? I use a Sony RX100 when I'm traveling because I'd rather not carry a bulky DSLR kit. The Sony is very small and almost takes ...

  • If you can't afford a wide-angle or macro lens, it seems to me that you can't afford an FX camera, which will need new lenses too. I use an 85mm or a 105mm on DX for portraits. Works good. And a ...
  • Replied in Nasty setup
    Yes, you can get extreme close-ups with that. It's not, however, easy. The mushroom will have to be very close to the lens; your working distance is going to be around 2 inches. If you're planning ...
  • I have an 85mm f/1.8G and it's a very nice lens, certainly one of the sharpest lenses I own. It can flare a bit when there are light sources in the field of view but other than that its image ...
  • Replied in Lens Rental
    Well, there's LensRentals https://www.lensrentals.com/ But your gear list shows that you have a D200. The 300mm PF is an E lens, meaning that your D200 would not be able to control the aperture. ...
