  • Obviously... Still, I think that "compression" is acceptable shorthand for what long lenses appear to do... even if in reality it's about the distance from the subject.

  • This seems to me to be a particularly pointless comparison when you realize that the GH5 is very much designed for video above all else. I don't shoot video but I know that the GH series cameras ...
  • I'd figure that an astronaut would have some kind of specially designed space camera that is able to save a nearly infinite amount of information in the atmosphere that surrounds the camera itself...

  • I get your analogy, but as a person who shot plenty of 35mm film and currently uses m43 gear, I think that m43 is actually much better. When I was shooting 35mm, I also kind of wanted medium ...

    I don't doubt that various technical advances might make cell phone have some crazy-great IQ.... maybe as good as FF cameras have now. I think though that even if that were the case a lot of us ...
  • Yeah... whatever. At some point folks said that Canon is no longer in the running because they lacked the DR that Nikon has... and that no one would take Sony seriously because they compress their ...
  • For me m43 represents a nice compromise between compact and good image quality. Sure, there are some really expensive bodies and lenses but some of the more moderately priced stuff is still great. ...
  • DPR is saying that Sony necessarily makes a better camera, just that presently it's the most innovative brand. In terms of features and specs it's hard to beat. Seems like it's obvious then why the...

  • Great shot... really moody, just how I like it. I'm a dedicated post-processor, but I have to say that I'm impressed that you got such a result in-camera.
  • A fine shot and I happen to like the dark reading of it.... Makes it a bit moody and severe... adds some drama! I mostly feel that I can live without an ultra-wide lens but shots like this make me ...
  • Aren't all digital B&W images, save for that of the Leica Monochom and maybe a couple of large format backs converted from color? Either way, really fine shot. I like the way that you've captured ...

    Nice shot.... Just the kind of thing that I try and do, create an abstractions out of the most ordinary scene. This one is a particularly good example of that.
  • Your demonstration would be more effective I think if you were to post larger images. That way we could get a better sense of how sharp these lenses really are...
  • If you have it in manual or in shutter priority and have the shutter speed set higher than the synch speed the flash won't fire and likely the flash indicator will be greyed out.
  • I have m43 gear, which I like a lot.... but if I can dream, then I think that I might like a Fuji camera. The X-T2 is just about what I want.... I certainly like the idea of aperture on the lens ...
  • I think that film can be beautiful and I totally understand why people use it... BW grain and sometimes the colors can be quite interesting. Still, as far as resolution or just about any other ...
  • Wow... I have nothing to compete with that. The last time I did any world traveling I was using a film camera (A Nikon FE) with a single lens, a 28-80 zoom. I don't shot film anymore, but I could ...
  • I don't want to come off as some kind of heretic... but the scene that one might have come upon could be a very poorly lit sad looking gathering of some really grubby looking folks. Something that ...
  • Ha.... I've seen a few of those,though I wasn't photographing any (shooting live music is a relatively recent thing for me). I've seen the Ramones, Bad Brains and The Pixies. I grew up in MD not ...
  • The photo of Courtney Barnett I think is a really nice shot. It isn't as "formal" looking as a lot of shots that tend to be used in articles like that, but I think that this only makes it more ...
