  • This example to me illustrates the significance of micro four thirds’ 4:3 aspect ratio. In my opinion 4:3 looks much petter in portrait orientation that 3:2 looks in portrait orientation. 3:2 looks ...
  • I will assume you do mean the GX850 and not the GX8 as you put in the text. (by the way I'm not sure you can call such a new camera 'trusty' like its your grandfathers old hammer :-) ) The reason ...
  • I couldn't be bothered to read the whole thread, but one thought I have: If you're starting from scratch, why bother with full frame? Why not go straight to fuji medium format and save yourself ...
  • I Think you are right in your asumption that it front focused.  The rock at the bottom looks more in focus than the tree does.  And I would guess that if focus on the tree was nailed then the rock ...
  • Not dorky at all! Cool idea though.

  • He's got the front logo taped and a custom button screwed into the shutter release.
  • Lol, the little man in the hand shot isn't even forced perspective, its shopped! I thought you'd have to stop down to get the depth of field, then saw the f2 and thought damn, maybe micro four ...
  • Yes you can get 14 AV of dynamic range in a 12 bit readout. And if will have aproximately 292 steps of gradiation per EV. 14 bit would just give 1170 steps per EV.

  • There isn't anyone here who doesn't know that.
  • At what?
  • over a third of the width of the jean leg, (the left third) is not covered by the rock and underneath it there is nothing.  (Im sure you can see that this area underneath is the rock behind his ...
  • That's a really strange response.  I'm not sure what you think I was saying.  When did I say it wasn't behind a rock?  I was saying that its too obvious an observation to bother mentioning.  Read ...
  • I don't know why people think they are enlightening us by saying that its behind a rock. Anyone and everyone can see and understand that its behind a rock: That isn't the point!  The point is that ...
  • This isn't really about photography but my advise would be to ignore all her nonsense. Do not allow yourself to be emotionally effected.  This is equivelant to a kid having a tantrum in the store, ...
