  • It's a tough grind changing the photographic vernacular. Besides that, you need someone to slap Adobe around to change the label on that Exposure slider... I live pretty near them but I don't know ...
  • I'm sorry. I was so sure it was the 35 that I blacked out on the EXIF information. I thought the 50 had better bokeh than that. But if you're looking for maximum quality, almost all lenses are ...
  • Replied in Violent reaction
    I'm left-handed and I think it was funny. Do you often wish that people die horribly for offending you?
  • Some comments on the individual pictures: This is what you get with the 35mm f/1.8 wide open. Iffy sharpness, lousy bokeh. You get shallow depth of field but the out-of-focus areas look busy. The ...
  • I don't think lens correction would work in this instance. What you're getting is not lens distortion but perspective distortion. When you use a focal length that's too short, people's noses look ...
  • It is almost certainly possible to build an 8mm full-frame lens for a Nikon or a Canon. There is no fundamental optical limitation to doing this. It's just difficult and expensive, so no ...
  • I thought the 18-55 STM was pretty sharp. Are you sure a 24-70 would be an improvement? Also, 24mm isn't real wide on a crop sensor. I would miss that part of the zoom range. I hope the 70-300 you ...
  • I see the 105/1.4 as the modern 105/2.5. The 105/2.5 is still my favorite portrait lens but I would probably like the 1.4 better if I didn't have to pay for it.
  • The 85mm f/1.8G is for sure insanely sharp. I have to bump up my handheld shutter speed to 1/250 to keep it from showing motion blur. But the 60mm Micro is also insanely sharp. No real loss there.
  • Replied in I gots to know
    Where was that place?
  • Yes. Lenses on interchangeable lens cameras are marked with their actual, true focal lengths. Your kit lens at 50mm produces the same field of view as a 50mm EF lens. If you like the focal length ...
  • There's no hard limit but it gets difficult to design a lens with a 10mm focal length that is 40mm away from the sensor. They make crop-sensor lenses down to 8mm for Nikon, which suggests that you ...
  • Replied in Depth of Field
    Your camera is listed as having an f/2.8-f/6.3 lens. This means that, when set at its widest angle, the lens can open up to f/2.8. At any focal length greater than the minimum, it won't open that ...
  • Replied in Depth of Field
    The lowest number gives the least depth of field. Also, the HX400 doesn't have a 2/3" sensor. It has a 1/2.3" sensor, which is quite a bit smaller. In real numbers, a 2/3" sensor is 8.8mm X 6.6mm ...
  • Why? Did your DSLR suddenly become old and unusable technology? I doubt if anything you can get will produce better results.
  • Replied in That be too bad
    The F-mount stands in your way. Nikon's F-mount has a flange distance of 46.5mm and a diameter of 44mm. That makes it impossible to do f/1, especially since there's various levers and contacts ...
  • You need two things: first, a camera and lens that will focus close enough to have a small object fill the frame. Second, you need lighting that will produce contrast in the mark. You do not say ...
  • I used dofmaster: http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html There are a couple of different sensor sizes called 1/2.3. The crop factor is about 5.6. So your "26mm equivalent" lens is actually about 4.6mm. ...
  • I have an RX100 III (and a DSLR). The RX100 is very small. It fits in a pants pocket. I can take it anywhere. The screen does not quite flip 180 degrees. I just attempted framing a selfie and while ...
  • Replied in Next week?
    Given the short time she would have to familiarize herself with the camera, she should use a phone. That would give her the greatest percentage of successful images.
