  • What difference would it make?  I was just being polite.
  • I've never touched a recent Leica digital camera.  Maybe one day I will and it will make complete sense to me! :)
  • Hi John, the question is why Leica put a large ISO dial on the top of its digital camera.  I believe it deviates from their core philosophy of keeping camera functionality to an absolute minimum.  ...
  • In film, when you change the ISO film you change the chemical structure.  Do you change the silicon/chemical when you change the ISO dial on a digital camera? The chemical sensitivity to light ...
  • This is a bit frustrating for me.  Have I argued that the ISO dial isn't necessary for JPGs?  Or that it won't bring joy to some photographers?  'history' leads to many things, not all of them ...
  • I was just questioning if Leica was getting away from its historical adherence to the fundamentals of photography, where it only focused on the mechanics that had an effect on image quality. ...
  • Replied in Into the black
    Thanks!  I've looked at that but couldn't find any relevant reviews.  Now that you say it's good I'll buy it!  Right now I'm using black paint meant for leather.  No idea if it's any good. I'm ...
  • I believe that camera has a Graflok back so you might be able to use a Rhinocam, or something similar if you only one to take one, or a few images. The problem with tilt/shift on all DSLRs in my ...
  • Nice find!  You can now get LED bulbs that will fit too, I believe, though I imagine the color isn't good but at least they'd probably be cooler.  I'm still waiting for the day I find a good use ...
  • Interesting!  If only there were more time in the day!  Wait, you found time in the night ;)  Will reach out at some point.  Thanks!
  • I envy you your year-round warmth in Arizona.  Do you have comparisons of what you shot using your method and shooting natively through the A7R?  Sounds interesting!  I've thought about the same ...
  • Hi Nancy.  Curious, do you have a large format setup?  A few days ago I sent back to creating a back for a Graflex (which will lead to another Cambo version).
  • I believe I read your research a while ago. Thanks! Indeed, after I read some about these constraints (it might have even been your paper!) I did some tests and, though only casually scientific, ...

    Thank you Gandolphi!  Yes, that was my question and it remains an interesting one to me.  I've framed it multiple times.  I was wrong about ISO, but not so wrong as a practical photographer ...
  • Replied in I am wrong
    Thanks yes, that makes sense to me now!  It was Mako2011 was saying too but I didn't give it enough thought.
  • Thanks for the kind words.  It's not the first time I've been humiliated or wrong.  No fun cry-sob. But I still wonder, why only now has Leica put an ISO dial on the camera?  Even though I could ...
  • Replied in I am wrong
    Okay, just looked at some files from my DF. They do change drastically based on ISO. Here's a file I took with the DF at ISO 100 Here's another files where I set the ISO to 3200. Although it is ...

    You stated that it wasn't about ISO.  Now the subject is blurriness?  If you're not going to do your homework (watch the video) then don't argue what it is about.  Stay on topic. You're consistent ...
  • Replied in Already
    Seriously, what is your problem?  Watch whole video and then make an argument about why it doesn't cover the issues behind ISO.  The video takes someone through the laborious process of taking RAW ...
  • Replied in Already
    Iliah, what's with the insults?  If you have data that proves that ISO has a material effect on M10-D RAW files than share it.  What is "your kind of data"? Otherwise, you're just a bitter person ...
