  • I would agree for any professional application. The commercial developing/scanning/printing support is no longer there. And any hobbyist who wants to experience film is going to be sorely...

  • goblin - half of what article? Only 1 of the 10 cameras listed was FD mount. Did you not click past page 2?

    As to lens aging: Lenses do not normally yellow. This is something that happens with...

  • FUD post if I've ever seen one.

    - Plenty of FD lenses are available. And they're now adaptable to mirrorless.

    - Lenses do not "age." If the glass is good, it's good. The mechanics can fail but...

  • Commented on article Canon EOS M6 Review

    "Whatever they come out with seems to follow the crowd."

    50MP. An embarrassingly large selection of pro teles. DPAF. 'Follow the crowd.'

    "At the high end both Nikon and the ever amazing Sony and...

  • I don't know precisely what differences exist between the various Epson models in relation to clogging. I can say that the 3880 is extremely resistant to clogging. If I don't use mine for months...

  • Putting cheap 3rd party ink in an Epson pro photo printer would be like putting retread tires on a Ferrari. If you care so little about print IQ, color gamut, and longevity that you're willing to...

  • Can't speak for Epson's entire pro line, but I have a 3880 that does not clog even if it's off for months. The ink repellent coating, sealed ink lines, and pressurized carts work very well.

  • "Your argument makes no sense"

    I've argued two points.

    One is that you guys should clearly state the processing parameters used when you do not use default parameters. The only appropriate...

  • Replied in AA filter meme
    I don't think they would have had to drop 4k to hit the D810 price point. While I like the 5D4, I think it should probably be priced competitively against the D810. Of course it may drop to that ...
  • Replied in AA filter meme
    I'm sorry, but I hate that the trend is towards no AA filters. The difference amounts to a slight increase in sharpening either in camera or in post for a camera with the filter. Moiré is hideous ...
  • Don't forget that the 1DX mark II, 80D, and now 5D4 have DR comparable to Sony sensors. The meme is to compare them to the few Nikon FF bodies that are in the 14ev range and declare that "Canon is ...
  • Replied in Some facts
    LPH is not dependent on or multiplied by actual physical size. It comes from the TV industry and was never bound to physical dimensions. It's a way of expressing resolution which gives comparable ...
  • This is observably false. See my reply "Resolution is pretty much the same" up above. I've heard people say this before, but it is a myth and it is not grounded in the science of optics or imaging ...
  • This is observably false. From Imaging Resource: Sony A7 Measured Resolution (no aliasing): 2,900 lph horizontal 2,850 lph vertical Sony A7 Measured Resolution (extinction): 3,600 lph both Sony ...
  • You just hit my #1 pet peeve with DxO. I hate their abuse of the term "megapixel" with a passion. And we have popular reviewers like Tony Northrup quoting the 'equivalent megapixel' scores. Which ...
  • They are controversial because nobody likes hard evidence that says they cannot discern A from B when they've spent hours / days / a lifetime insisting the difference is huge, just huge. To be ...
  • I've experienced the same thing. I love night street shooting with the Canon EF-M 18-55 IS. It has flare...but some how it's the right kind of flare, a "glow" around highlights.
  • No. That's not the test. Someone with a crop camera does not cover it in cardboard and pretend it's FF. The prints are the test. A talented photographer uses a fast normal or moderate telephoto ...
  • If it's not something you're interested in, read another thread.
  • That statement only demonstrates a lack of knowledge regarding human psychology and the reasons for double blind testing. Read up on it. It's very interesting. At the far extremes of the placebo ...
