  • I was going to say that the tripod was the best $18 I've ever spent ... but then I remembered that my first date with my wife cost $18.  (The comedy show was free, but the drinks were $9 apiece.) I ...
  • The advanced processing in smartphone cameras is extremely good.  The processing is good enough that a person has to develop a certain amount of competence for their P/A/S/M mode photos to equal ...
  • You're mistaken (somewhat), because you're overlooking the difference in ISO/noise between the two sensors. The 1" sensor can set the ISO about 5.8 times higher and still generate the same amount ...
  • I disagree.  If you look at this photo or this one , you can see that the model is wearing very heavy makeup.  Stage makeup or pancake makeup, I would say. It creates a similar effect if you don't ...
  • It's one of those "Hey, I can do that now!" deals.
  • Have you looked at the Canon G1 X III, the Panasonic LX100, and the Leica D-Lux Typ 109?  They seem to meet those requirements. Well, a ZS200 (with a 1" sensor) is not going to be as good at ...
  • What do you consider "enough light" in that statement?  I like to keep my ISO in the 100-400 range, and that seems pretty slow for anything between sunrise and sunset. Are you zooming your camera?  ...
  • I was watching one of Jerry Ghionis' lectures, and he said, "I've often asked myself, if MacGyver was a photographer, what would he do?" Instead of seeing things as limitations or compromises, ...
  • Eh ... I'd have to actually get some kind of social media account to post them on.  I don't really do social media (other than LinkedIn). They're not going to turn out as well as your friend's IR ...
  • My infrared filter arrived yesterday.  Here are my initial observations from testing it: The filter: I purchased an inexpensive Fotga 720nm filter.  It blocks all light below 650nm.  It allows ...
  • Thanks for the good laugh. When I met my wife, there were two boxes of pictures (in very good frames) in boxes in her garage. They had belonged to her mother. Some of them ended up being donated to ...
  • No. I've never visited Indonesia. I looked up the buildings in your photo, to figure out which city they were in. I pulled up Google Maps for Jakarta, then figured out where a few of those ...
  • Cheap filters, cheap tripod... I'm consistent that way.
  • Replied in Buzzword salad
    More food is being grown every day than in the first hundred years of farming. Is that also a problem? If you look at all of the famous photographers of the early years of photography, they had one ...
  • If more cropping is required, and more cropping will make the photo look bad, then the photo isn't going to be a good photo. Sometimes that happens. I'll take a lot of photos, and none of them look ...
  • You're right ... and you're wrong. You'e exactly right (or close enough to right) that it's the same as having a 10 gallon tank rather than a 15 gallon tank. But the 10 gallon tank is faster to ...
  • Well, you altered the circle of confusion from 0.03 to 0.015 between the formulas.  That seems rather arbitrary. It also seems wrong ... since the best 4/3 cameras have a CoC of 0.020.  (I'm ...
  • What's your source for that? It probably is.  Slightly. But the act of taking a picture changes your movement and your body language.  I don't care if your camera is invisible ... you'll be ...
  • Here's a website that provides the hyperfocal distance formula. Notice that the focal length is squared. Therefore, there's an exponential relationship between focal length and DOF. Hopefully that ...
