  • There are rumors that Sony will soon have new 60 and 36 MP sensors. Is there any chance that the 36MP version will make it into the D760? I'm itching to finally "upgrade" my D800 to a smaller body. ...

    Bob, do you think there is still a chance that they will use the 36MP sensor from the D800/810 in a lower end model, maybe a D750 successor? I really would like to upgrade to a lighter camera from ...

    The Nikon Z primes are completely different animals from the simple nifty-fifty design, just look at the number of lens elements. They were probably designed for wide open edge performance. Hopeful ...

    That seems to be true, unfortunately. Just look at the brand new Nikon Z 24-70/4 for the mirrorless Nikon full frame bodies. It weighs 500g, more than the Nikon 24-85/3.5-4.5 (465g), when in fact ...
  • Thanks everybody for the input! There seems to be no easy solution and I'm going to fiddle some more with the color adjustments in Capture One for Sony. I think the Sony engineers who developed the ...
  • I understand that. However, if they have this arrangement with Phase One, I would have thought that it is their interest to make sure that Capture One provides a good user experience with the Sony ...
  • Yes, that's what I have tried. As you write, it is indeed difficult to make the sky color match the jpg without adversely affecting other colors. I was thinking that the Capture One default color ...
  • Created discussion thread RX100 MkIII color problem: jpg vs raw
    I very much like the color response when shooting jpg with my RX100 III. Unfortunately, when I convert raw files from the camera using Capture One with default settings (for the RX100 III) I'm ...
  • Sure, the SL2 sensor is very good for astrophotography and the camera has all the functionality you need (e.g. manual focus and exposure settings). The crux is the availability of wide and fast ...
  • Replied in Great Video
    For me photography is about creating images. Even if the subject is a small nebula, the framing should be the same in two images from different camera/lens systems in order to compare them. I have ...
  • Replied in Great Video
    The subject appears to be NGC 735773 (consult your catalog of Yosemite Trees).
  • Replied in Great Video
    Yes, in order to make them the same field of view the 15mm image has to be cropped (sensor pixels are thrown away).
  • Replied in Great Video
    Cropping an image is essentially the same as using a smaller sensor size to capture the image. Except for the parts of the "scene" from the 15mm where no light at all is captured in the 35mm image :) ...
