    Lucky you, which are they?
  • Of course, in that sense all images are cropped as they record only part of the IC. But with a shift lens you get the full AoV and resolution of your sensor whereas with a normal WA lens you'd ...
  • Shift lenses have a larger image circle and a mechanism to move the frame within the image circle so that it gives the desired view while keeping the sensor plane vertical. Most commonly the lens ...
  • I went the stepup ring route on digital mainly for compactness 46-49>52mm. Haven't tried a sliding system, could be more convenient (less screwing) which with film might be more important as you'd ...

    Sure. My legacy lenses all have DoF scales. Used those in film times. Not possible with any of my digital lenses. Anyway why not automate the process. AF or MF on nearest point, press button, AF ...
  • Contrary to what some have said I consider your case mild to average as per the manipulated example which IMO looks fine though it's a question of taste and varies depending on how you want to ...

    that such a useful feature was available on entry level Canons decades ago but I never heard about it existing on any other cameras. A related question is why cameras don't record focus distance ...

    is your ftiend. I have one drawer and two shelves reserved for photo gear. My most used stuff is packed ready to go. One Mantona bikers' bag for my m43 system, one for 3 Sigma DPMs and a Mavic Pro ...

    double as an egg timer?

    Lovely shot. Looks perfect in every way except that those birds don't look like they need a lawyer:-)

    I've been toting the oversized square sensor for years. But I don't see much sense in covering the whole image circle, that gives only a very small advantage at the most extreme aspect ratios such ...
  • The concept of the oversized sensor is unfamiliar to many so people might confuse the size of the sensor with the size of the used part of the sensor. Like some think that new lenses would be needed
  • Replied in Absolutely
    Yes, now that such sensors exist, hope they can be bought. Not just return but expansion to what it should have been in the first place. Or at least close, depending on what the throat can swallow. ...

    Adobe CS4 does not read my GX7's RW2 files so to get my preferred workflow (ACR>PS) I have no alternative. Haven't compared so haven't found any downsides:-) Conversion takes no time as it runs ...

    stunning stuff. Thanks for linking.
  • Schadenfreude ist die beste Freude. Interesting scenario: I imagine I hava an inferiority complex while not having one? Why would I do that? Oh, it's all the rage nowadays, if you aren't nobody you ...
  • Replied in HP LP 2475w
    Have 2 + Spyder. Haven't tackled the task of equalizing them yet so use only one for color critical work. The other one is yellower despite calibration. Could it be old age? Over 10 year old ...
  • Indeed. > 1 440 000 000 $/h. You could do worse.
  • I used to think the same. Not so sure any more. My rather good (as far as kit lenses go) Panasonic 14-42/3.5-5.6 has a plastic mount. I even prefer the feel of plastic against metal as I mount it. ...

    that it's so hard to find a program that can add a text field outside the image that stretches as you write. Hope I read you correctly this time. Tried pdf, Windows Image Viewer, Photoshop... So ...
