  • Not crazy at all, just be aware of any differences that may matter with how you use it. With the D5600 you'll get more resolution and an articulating screen + touch screen. The body is smaller ...
  • Seems that some people still want cameras -- news that's bound to upset some with the recent agenda around here.

  • 1 stop is day and night? Must be a very dim day.

  • I'm having trouble reading that.  The ISO must be too high or the image stabilization didn't work.
  • Yes it is.  It's a chart without an agenda behind it.
  • I don't think they're equivalent. I prefer digital audio and optical viewfinders.

  • Holding a camera out in front like a phone? Yuck.

  • If I don't buy into your vision of this it must be a bad day for me? I was actually feeling good. But now that you've let me know..... Hug?  Won't work.    I'll need to go hug my phone to feel ...
  • They do? You can zoom smoothly from normal to telephoto? You can go from f/1.8 to f/11 and create the real looks those apertures do? Have useful ISO from 100 up to 6400? Have an equivalent ...
  • As a 90s teen, I prefer Ace of Base. Sensor tech has matured and many ILC users feel less need to upgrade. Doesn't mean they don't like their cameras. The 2010-2014 sales surge was more of an ...
  • That would be like a politician going into the glare of the public spotlight and personally asking a group of highly informed articulate voters what they thought of his policies -- policies ...
  • When the overwhelming trend is to accept viewing on a small screen as normal, there's increasingly less motivation to be "in concert with" better alternatives. You do get to observe and report what ...
  • And thankfully with the digital age and large monitors we were liberated from tiny prints And what good is that if you're looking at it on a tiny screen? And on larger screens, the quality ...
  • Oh.... you don't like to be Oh pleased. Perhaps Honeychile please! then. You certainly extrapolated quite a lot from what I said about small screens. So now you're saying that people will use ...
  • No problem, I didn't think it was the actual point you were trying to make. But if ISO is affecting aperture and shutter settings, it effectively is part of the exposure. Therefore it makes sense ...
  • Just looking at the settings, the 2nd scene luminance seems brighter. To me, it would choose 1/100. But it's possible I'm missing something. How are you calculating EV here?  It's a 2-stop ...
  • What are you trying to show with those two settings? How is that a "given scene" when the light is greater in one? Exposure triangle just gives an idea of the reciprocal nature of the stops from ...
  • Oh please. At some point this just becomes cheerleading in a race toward the lowest common denominator. Why people are motivated to do it, I'm not sure. If you can convince the entire world to ...
  • Exactly. Even a quick Google search will show that there are photographers worldwide who understand perfectly what the exposure triangle is and how it helps the user to understand the concepts ...
  • I wasn't suggesting that you could make your bulleted points simpler or requesting more depth, I meant that those points, expressed as they are, are above the heads of most beginners, who would ...
