  • Just looking at the colour and b&w street folders, the portfolio would be better structured in having an equal number (or nearly so) of images in each. So, either add more b&w, or remove some of ...
  • I agree that sensor resolution isn't the only factor in determining image quality. For that matter, neither is dynamic range or ISO sensitivity, although these latter two factors carry a lot more ...
  • How about a sensor that out-resolves the lenses? Assuming the lenses out-resolve the present sensor, that's leaving a lot of image quality on the table! That's a problem that exists with the ...
  • Regarding your concern with moiré, and saying this with a large amount of uncertainty, it seems the only time to be concerned would be if you are taking an image of a very large painting, with the ...
  • Replied in A Caution:
    It's low-on-the-ladder relative to other techniques, because it accepts as the norm the idea that street shooting is a stealthy process, that the photographer is somehow cut-off from the society ...
  • Replied in A Caution:
    Where was I trying to talk him out of anything? My original comment: "Are you sure you'll maintain a long-term interest in the hip-shooting technique? It's a bit low-on-the-ladder in terms of ...
  • Replied in A Caution:
    Well, you're simply reading what I wrote, incorrectly. No wonder your first reply made no sense to me. Didn't I write there was nothing wrong with the hip-shot approach? (YES.) Did I write that ...
  • Replied in A Caution:
    No, there was no discussion regarding my advice, just a judgement - for some unexplained reason - that it was bad. If you care to expand on how it is so, I'm all ears.
  • Replied in A Caution:
    If you think Artie's hip-shots are superior to his non hip-shots, you should be telling him, not me.
  • Replied in A Caution:
    Are you sure you'll maintain a long-term interest in the hip-shooting technique? It's a bit low-on-the-ladder in terms of skills available for street...not that there's anything wrong with the ...
  • Since you've received no reply from Leica, notify Andreas H. Kaufmann (head of Leica) on his Facebook account ( https://www.facebook.com/andreas.h.kaufmann?fref=ts ), and link this thread as well. ...
  • Navigating the old fashioned way The sleeper in today's Lounge! Well-composed elements, tightly framed, shot close-in. Part of the compositional efficacy has to do as well with the subtle ...
  • Replied in Umm...
    ...I think you started it, Sam. This is sort of like the commandment in Orwell's Animal Farm , where "All animals are equal. but some animals are more equal than others". No hatpins, please.
  • Great news, Paul. The 50mm frameline on the M3 will serve you well! You have the double-stroke; is it early enough an M3 model, that it doesn't have the frameline indicator level? I always felt ...
  • You're assuming proper exposure first, before the comparative analysis begins. Joe's comments immediately above sent me back the Ulrich's first set of images. Their EXIF show exposure values all ...
  • Thanks, Joe. You mean to say that the IIIf is even fiddlier to load than the M3? Egads, I didn't know that; thought nothing was worse! Not that I'm complaining... ;)
  • The images were taken over a three hour period, giving the sun enough movement to change the angle of incidence of light on the door. You can see the movement by looking at the close-ups of the ...
  • Thanks for the clarification, Eric. I asked Irakly, since he seems to be in lock-step agreement with Ulrich's observations and conclusions. Are you saying that Ulrich is stating the Sony gives up ...
  • Alright, now we're getting somewhere. The M3 has the largest viewfinder for the 50mm lens, and has the further advantages of: a) being best also for the 90mm and 135mm lenses, since its viewfinder ...
  • Since I cannot open such large files with my bandwidth that Ulrich has posted, I cannot see the difference in the images presented by the three cameras. Thus I'm perplexed as to the motive behind ...
