  • Yes... but the fat that there isn't a mirror that has to flip up in addition to that shutter might mean that even without a e-shutter option that the camera is relatively quiet. I know that both ...
  • It's not a deal breaker for me, but I do prefer the 4 x 3 format. I often crop to a square but seldom do I go wider than 4 x 3 and when I do it's REALLY wide, like for stitched panorama stuff...
  • Yeah, I don't shoot with the primes that I have very often, but I think that I might if I had that lens. That focal length is about my favorite one and I think that I might really enjoy trying a ...
  • I do like the design of the x100 series camera and the new version seems like the best one yet. Add that to the fact that the form factor is a lot like a Konica film rangefinder camera that I had ...
  • I do see it as being annoying, though I imagine that it's not something that gets called out much simply because it's become a bit of a convention that these kind of events are loud with shutter ...
  • I really don't think that any of this is at issue. The photographer in question actually is very good and I would freely admit better than I am (I'm also not a pro). The event is a music festival ...
  • At the yearly event that I shoot, I use a mirrorless camera that I never set to the e-shutter option and yet it's quiet enough that it pretty much goes unheard. You'd need to have your head 6" or ...
  • This isn't really the way that it works though... I shoot a yearly event where there's another photographer (a pro) who shoots a DSLR (I shoot mirrorless). There are parts of the performance where ...
  • I agree with everything that Dan Marchant said. It just seems to me that one has every right shooting in public and if some folks don't like that, it's their problem, particularly if you really ...
  • No, I don't quite remember that (maybe before my time here?) and that behavior certainly isn't something that I'd approve of. The poster that I'm talking about was on here more recently (within ...
  • Ok... speaking of logical fallacies, your marbles one is definitely that. If only two in 20 pedal powered vehicles I see on the street are trikes and not bicycles, I would still say that they are ...
  • I would say though that even if your intentions are good  and you really want to help and aren't being a troll/snob/whatever in any way you run the risk of being perceived that way. The truly ...
  • ... it's one thing if folks are looking for a critique, but quite another if they're just clueless and seem to be OK with it. There was a guy on the forum here who for a while seemed to post all ...
  • You're really only showing your closed minded, poorly formed understanding of things here. Sound engineering certainly can be an art, with someone like George Martin being an excellent example. ...
  • Replied in It depends...
    Overall, I think that the advantage of bigger frame cameras of having the option go with shallower DOF if actually more important... and I say this as someone who generally isn't that interested ...
  • I will say "no" because I can't really afford to be upgrading... Even my used old Pen F (actually I got it in great, nearly new shape) that I bought for a very good price was a kind of unnecessary ...
  • That's all great, but nowadays at least in a lot of places those kinds of educational experiences aren't possible. I live in Portland, Oregon which is far from the most impoverished city in the US ...
  • Yes definitely... and if you mix your own chemistry from scratch, it makes you a little closer to being an artist if you're a photographer. If you're a digital photographer, if you charge up a ...
  • I thought that I was responding to your response to me, not what other people were saying? There's a whole world of art then that you're not really taking into account... like conceptual art. That ...
  • As far as the whole "sound engineering as music" idea, know that there are are whole genes that are pretty much just that. In reggae music for example there is is dub music, which is really ...
