  • not much but it's been way beyond my means for decades. the nice thing about little add-ons is that they are often affordable and ease the ache for that super duper camera/lens for a while. I try ...
  • I agree. That's a lovely shot.
  • Getting a macro lens is not mandatory but recommendable particularly since you want to make high quality prints. They tend to bee optically good and have a flat focus plane meaning all of your ...
  • AFAIU tilt neither increases nor decreases DoF but it tilts the plane of focus. Typically if you have objects on a table and you shoot them from an angle and want them all sharp, you tilt the plane...

  • Replied in Tasty Popcorn
    Since April 2015? Some bag...
  • Yes, that's only rocket science, this is on another level altogether.
  • Lovely camera for sure. Fortunately for us less well heeled we can have the Bayer filter stripped off many camera models for about 500 $/£/€ or buy a Sigma.

  • Looks like they printed the manual on it so it would always be with you.

  • Replied in Small print
    Nice problem trying to choose one 12-X lens. Been sort of set on the Oly 12-40 cause I thought I wanted max performance at WA. Not so sure any more. Reconsidering the 12-35 and now there's the new ...

    Not surprised they look identical at such a small print size. I'd expect to start seeing differences beyond A3 or A2. Are you talking about the Vario-Elmarit?
  • And I thought my 3 printers in 15 years was bad. In 2015 I got my 4th printer (Epson 3880) and the 1st I'm happy with. Bought it used for 380€ so it was also my cheapest by then. It's got big ...
  • Replied in m4/3 sensor..
    Can't find the size but looks like it's still only 13mm high so helps only with wider formats such as 16:9 (video). Would be the cat's whiskers provided enough pixels. So far only Canon has one IMHO. ...

    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 ...
  • Replied in Amazing
    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 ...
  • Replied in Amazing
    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 ...
  • Replied in Ikea
    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 ...
