Can someone kindly explain to me (never use DSLR) what is AF tuning
Af tuning need to be done on D3400? or even able to do AF tuning on D3400?

What I know is AF tuning not done, image won't be tack sharp (slightly blur)

Also any ultra wide option for APS-C DX mount?
Thanks

Now at 400 gram same weight as A6300 , this is becoming more interesting to me

May I ask what great lens option exist for APS-C F mount?

I am interested in ultra wide angle and fast wide prime

wayne131: There seem's no end to the Fuji bashing.
People constantly complaining about the price of the lenses. You must be having a laugh. The quality and finish of there lenses is stunning.
Fuji produce fantastic cameras and have simply the best firmware updates of any camera manufacturer.
If you want to buy a product when it is first released, expect to pay a premium price.
I recently purchased a "used/mint" X-E2 body and the superb 18-55mm kit lens for £500.00. The original ticket price was still on the box - £1199.00.
In addition I also purchased a used X-M1 for £95.00 !!
The only camera I purchased new was the X-T10. It's handling and button layout suits me more than any other camera I have owned. And it represents incredible value.
I have no brand "loyalty" and shoot with several other brands of camera.
The biggest single advantage of Fuji? The files it produces require the least amount of post - processing.
Have a nice day.

" this doesn't even show the capabilities of Capture One on Bayer sharpening"

What is that mean?

Joe Ogiba: My Samsung S6 Edge Plus is smaller and thinner but has a larger 5.7" 1440p AMOLED display . It has 16mp and that is enough for me IMHO. I also like the Samsung fast wireless charger and Gear S smartwatch.

I am amazed at the IQ of my girlfriend S6 in base ISO
lots of detail looks like it can a good lens

more detail than my NEX with kit lens
amazing , have to seen to believe

unfortunately only at base ISO
so no replacement for real camera

On article Fujifilm X-Pro2 versus X-T2: Seven key differences (362 comments in total)

I am not trying to be a troll, but ask a serious question
Why should people buy either one and not A6300 which is $600 or $700 cheaper

if u answer lens, I disagree. There are many lens option on Sony side
seriously, why?

Seriously why do I want to paid $600 more and not just get a A6300?
60% more !

There are lots of rich people in this world, sadly not me
Question is will I buy this if I am rich? Answer is no
Lots of lens I would buy if I am rich like Zeiss Batis for Sony FE

Why? the weight. If I can stand the weight which I can't
at 400 gram roughly the same weight,
12-40 F2.8 would be much more useful although 2 stop slower

On article DxO OpticsPro 11 brings advanced Raw noise reduction (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: I wish DxO [view point] will have better De-fisheye ability/control for "Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 Fisheye (MFT)" for example.

I do not have lot of experience for PP software, but I think "DxO view point 2" is on par with others in terms of De-fisheye based on my limited knowledge.

So, does any body and/or DPR know a better De-fisheye software?

Is there lens profile for using DXO Viewpoint to de-fish?
I mean all automatic? Thanks

In reply to:

Dr_Jon: I've now done some tests with 11 and I'm still not happy with the moire handling (well, as the moire I was trying to fix looks the same with the moire tool off and set to maximum I suspect "lack of moire handling" would be a better term). It seems the same as DXO 10 which is very annoying to me. Other than that I think it's a great product and the advances to Prime seem really good.
(Silkypix Pro 7 fixes the moire without even ticking the box to fix moire, which is very cool, the moire brush in Lightroom also fixes it.)

On article Primer: What is VR, and why should photographers care? (143 comments in total)

Instead of asking people to buy $1000+ computer, they should

charge a monthly fee and do the computer computation outside in a data center
than the image (or data) is transferred using high speed internet to the VR headset

This seem such a good idea but why it is not working that way?
Not possible? if so why not

In reply to:

The Jimmy 86: I own a LX100, heartening to see it still sitting near the top after over a year on market. I imagine Panasonic will have an LX200 out in a year or so.

The LX100 is my main camera now. I particularly love the time lapse function and the sync speed of 1/4000. My Canon DSLR can't kill sunlight anywhere close as well.

If a slightly lower MP count and a lack of touchscreen don't bother you, this is THE compact camera.

"the sync speed of 1/4000. My Canon DSLR can't kill sunlight anywhere close as well. "
what is that mean? sorry but what is the use of sync speed 1/4000
u mean flash sync speed?
what is kill sunlight?

there should be a poll if one can get only 1 of these as a gift, which one would they choose

I would choose Rx100 iv for the super slow motion video
2nd pick would be LX100

14mm F2.8 can use lens filter or not?
It seem to have a build in lens hood that would stop the use of filter
anyone know?
Thanks

In reply to:

mrmrbill: Custom SLR "Glide One" is an option that addresses the reviewer's "cons" whilst keeping the same great features.

So Black Rapid the original and Glide One the imitator?
Which is better? like more comfortable and more easy attach/detach?

BlackRapid, Glide One and this Slide Camera Sling

Is there a consensus which one is best in terms of comfort and ease of put on and remove

Thanks

smartphone is a small sensor , fixed focal length camera
It got a sensor , a lens , a screen
it is a camera

Problem is the only traditional camera company that profit from it is Sony selling sensor

Link | Posted on Apr 27, 2016 at 20:26 UTC as 29th comment

No matter what, I will not buy another 16MP MFT sensor
I have already buy 4 cameras with this sensor
Yes this time without AA filter, so what
even if u believe Panasonic , it increase resolution by 10%
so increase 1.6 MP?

Panasonic should put the 20 MP sensor in. It fear it would hurt the sales of GX8 and annoy current GX8 owner

But that's there problem, this is a new camera model in 2016 and it should be 20 MP and called GX8 II
I don't know how many would buy. Not me. It is not cheap and a new camera model in 2016 should not be 16MP
