  • YES!!!! Music.  Music has a built in flow that helps you organize your thoughts and your shots. Such a fantastic idea.
  • First thing: always let your camera roll for at least five seconds before and after the action you’re shooting. Regardless, whatever you’re shooting, get at least 25 seconds of video, I learned ...
  • Replied in Good job
    Science is numbers, not vague unprovable assertions or attacks on the questioner. You say they are spot on for resolution and noise, but how can you so confidently say that when neither figure is ...
  • And you prove my point—none of us are qualified. While you can talk in sweeping terms, you have not identified a specific lens-camera combination that you have personally used in the field in ...
  • Splitter. Usually works.

  • With its small size, and system optimized for close faces and wide apertures it sounds perfect for making indie movies in borrowed locations...A couple of wireless lavs, a multi-track field...

  • And yet bird photographers manage to get gloriously colored, wonderfully detailed,  frame-filling shots of tiny birds without needing a 90,000 mm lens or resorting to equivalence. Clearly the bird ...
  • These tests are quite valid if one wants to shoot static, evenly lit subjects from 10 feet away (or whatever distance between the chart and the camera). But they are zero help for someone trying ...

  • You’re asking the wrong forum. Go to the wildlife forum at https://www.dpreview.com/forums/1051 and if you’re specific with your question you’ll get a great answer. Tell them the species of birds ...
  • In reality it’s impossible to give you precise numbers to compare unless those figures come directly from the camera makers. Only they know what the electronics inside the camera are doing or how ...
  • I’ve shot a lot of animals and the main feature I value is the speed of the autofocus, but it’s not just the lens and it’s not just the camera, it’s how they work together. For instance, I once ...
  • Except now there’s an ever-growing chunk of the populace who genuinely believe that looking at “1917” on A 5-inch Samsung Galaxy is movie watching. What we need is color science that will refuse ...
  • Replied in Color Science
    I agree with you when shooting in nice normal daylight or in an office where all the lamps are identical. However, I shoot with both Canon and Nikon and my experience is that Canon gives me more ...
  • Which part?
  • People who live in Nevada, Arizona, and most of Texas. But a more relevant car-related area of color science is keeping color reproduction consistent across a variety of platforms. When the color ...
  • Just like color science, beer quality depends on the combined efforts of scientists and engineers from a variety of fields. At an individual brewery quality changes constantly based on seed and ...
  • Yes, Canon cameras paired with Canon lenses consistently produce very attractive skin tones and (just as important) skin textures without requiring a huge amount of post processing. If you love to ...
  • Thanks to Fuji’s amazing lenses it’s now officially Game Over for Sony, Nikon, and Canon.
    Will the last person leaving CanikonSony headquarters please turn out the lights.

  • Fortunately almost everyone has a friend with a keen eye for art and you can ask for their help, showing the compositional arrangement you’re trying for versus what you produced. There are also ...
