  • Replied in Why not?
    Of course it is.  It is a camera with an electronic viewfinder and no mirror. It is not a M irrorless I nterchangeable L ens C amera (MILV), however. Not all of them. True fact. Oh yes they are! Ye ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    You are absolutely correct. The viewfinder in my LX100 II could certainly be better--but Panasonic accepted some performance compromises in the interest of minimizing size.   They sell other ...
  • The sensor has one function--to convert light signals to electrical signals accurately and quickly, and to enable the speedy export of those data. Everything else is accomplished by processors that ...
  • Why?
  • Absolutely! EVF technology is now so advanced that the use of a flipping mirror and pentaprism doesn't make sense. Camera bodies san be lighter and smaller. There's no "blackout".
  • Some years ago, Michael Reichmann opined that he obtained better results with his Sony A6000 and Zeiss lenses than with his $15,000 Leica kit.
  • Come on, now! Focal length and focal distance are driven, in part, by  sensor size. Everyone who has really looked into the subject knows that, all other things being equal, DoF control is affected ...
  • Replied in Really?
    The purpose, most obviously, would be to eliminate the effects of other variable, allowing an apples to apples comparison,
  • Ah, the scientific method! Change one variable at a time.....
  • Many know,  from their own experience, and/or have accepted the findings of knowledgeable experts, that, for still photography, larger sensors are inherently superior in some important respects to ...
  • If you want to characterize what you read from DxOMark and numerous other knowledgeable experts as "talk", that is your privilege. Why? What would it tell us, other than what I said in my previous ...
  • The consensus of knowledgeable people is that, for still photography , FF is generally superior in a number of ways to smaller formats, all other things being equal . The reasons have to do with ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    If your point is that there isn't much difference among the results from different sensors when small images from the web are viewed on a  screen, you have made it. If you believe that that ...

    Really! Alrighty then! You seem to think you know more than DxOMark about the subject. I somehow doubt it. "Even 24x36 poster prints of my work I have sold, no one looking at it could tell which ...

    You can continue to try to persuade yourself that substantially larger pixel area dod\es not make a significant difference, and you can play with videos, but there are credible published test ...
  • Best in any particular aspect can be measured rather objectively. Best overall will depend upon usage, needs, expectations, and priorities, and will be a matter of judgment. The best in terms of ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    The ability to manage wide variance between highlights and shadows is most certainly not a function of print size, and there is much more to recovering detail in shadows than digital noise, Nor do ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    For the same number of pixels, with the same technology, certainly.  And it does matter to me. There's more than that.  Color depth and dynamic range enter into it.  A scene with bright and  dark ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    Low light is important to many of us, and there are better color depth and greater ability to limit DoF with lenses with the same FoV. Fuji is still putting a lot into leading edge APS-C cameras, ...
  • Replied in Wrong
    Of course it is! However, the latest full frame sensor technology has an inherent performance advantage over smaller sensors, all other things being equal. Medium format should be even better, but ...
