Fun video. Some boppy music video idea.

Sorry, not going to buy a whole new cow that looks similar to the old cow get milked in return for the some new flavours.

The only reason to update for me is for the RAW converter update when I buy a new camera.

Subscription model $ like this better spent on buying content/plugins.

mr.izo: wow. this is how it's done, no bs..

edit: didnt catch manual only, but still very nice.

Pro's and cons, TTL, is great for almost guaranteed usable exposure but is slow, battery power sapping, and preflash scares skittish animals like fishes.

I try to wean myself off TTL in event photography as I can get faster short bursts with manual. TTL does go bonkers when there's disco lights flashing.

TTL is great for fast changing lighting conditions and changing lenses from an f1.4 one to a wideangle f8 and forgetting to redial the exposure.

Leaning 70-30- towards manual.

prefer manual- unless you work in large spaces, in which case these flashes wont be powerful enough.

Yesss! Not sure though after reading the comments.

Time stood still at V6.

Sorry, that disgusting profit report sealed the deal. Greedy leeching corporation.
Total turn off.

I hope students abandon adobe products. They are the future.

cosinaphile: premium phone and premium price

but they source the panels from LG with well-known issues related to unevenness in display most noticeable in solid colors .... the visual impression of the unevenness
of solid colors is often described as looking "dirty" here sanitized to the descriptor "grainy "

really a shame .... sensible android phone shopper will shy away from overpriced crippled phones lacking sd slots or headphone jacks and spend half as much
on an asus or moto or zte phone

i see evidence of collusion between the android maker and apple .... this loss of sd and headphone jack in pixel phone seems to stem from a "feature cartel"
between makers of this crap phone and apple iphone colluding to create a new reality feature set ...they hope others will follow ... this plot to sell dongles and new heradphone and force new phone purchases when phones clog their memory
is bs and can go to hell.

I don't know, hoving down your throat sounds rather harsh but then again there no option not to if you're into apple.

Certainly can be solved with a dongle but I'm not a big fan of dongles.

Salah: So what does dull mean in these articles? Are these displays render colors accurate?

Some people like saturated colours. Which is obviously not accurate. To each his/her own.

Cocktail Time: This is pretty heartbreaking, but having dealt with the issue in the past I've got to say that the moire kills it for me. Most of my work involves product photography and lots of that is packaging and this thing is going to turn anything printed on a 4-color press into a zebra. DL the raw file of the test target and you can see how bad it is in the woodcut. Omitting the low pass filter gives you, in my opinion, a trivial amount of additional resolution but it does me no good if what it resolves is turned into swirls and rainbows.

Cocktail Time, unfortunately I have not encountered this problem with my 16mp camera. I'm sure google can help.

True, speaking for myself, :), I would make an actions set to kill moire with a mask to speed up the process since jumping from the current 16MP to 45.7 MP is a big difference.

That said, I would need a more powerful computer. :)

(unknown member): I don't see the point of this Google Pixel? It doesn't even have a Leica lens like the other HuaWei phone camera featured on here. Also the iPhone 8 Plus I own is superior to anything Google makes especially with the new Android OS 11 they have now. Perhaps if Google used Android OS 11 they too would be decent.

hahahaha although I wish i owned an ip8, coming to troll on GP2 is hilarious.

bad troll. hahahaha

Your solution would be to post process the moire out IMHO.

In reply to:

landscaper1: Well, that's interesting. It appears to me that the D850 is noisier at ISO 3200 & 6400 than the Canon 5Div. ISO 1600 looks approximately equal between the two. From all the talk about how great the D850 is, I expected it would be better.

Resolution of the 45 mp camera is better than the 50mp one. Go figure.

Red seems to be Canon's achilles heel. Grainiy/smudge cotton reel at ISO100. Crushed black with no detail as well.

Some focal plane sharpeness issue with D850 and 5DSR[noticeable haloing on the grey bg=oversharpening]. Text above DPR center looks sharper on the 5DSR but numbers one the ruler look sharper one the D850.

Sony has some jaggedy feathers top right.

D850 is significantly sharper than the D810.

On article 10 macro photography tips for beginners (51 comments in total)
In reply to:

jwasturias: I agree with most of it. It sounds in fact like I wrote it!
All insect shots handheld. Manual 105 macro. High speed sync flash, f16 or f22. I find diffraction less of a problem than having only part of on insect in focus.
I also rock back and forth but put the camera in burst mode. Unfortunately with flash i get less burst speed, but enough.
I also prefer the aps-c format over full frame for macro because you need less magnification and get a longer working distance to get the same frame filling picture, and therefore more depth of field at the same aperture.
Obviously resolution plays a role here. But so far I am more successful with my sony 24mp nex7 than with my 36mp a7r both with adapted nikkor micro 105 ais f4 lens.

True with the APSC. 60mm AFS rocks. After switching to FF, the 105AFS not surprisingly gets much less DOF.
