  • Not sure about that...

    Clearly implies cut off at ISO 1600 - almost on the button.

  • Very nice Barney, quite funny too. Did you actually give up on the 56mm AF or was it just simpler to work manually? I know that modelling lights are not usually all that bright.

  • From experiment and some data from Bill Claff it appears to be ISOless from around 1600 ISO.

    It was the photos that never got taken that were the problem... ;)

    "only if you're on glue - the lack of detail and resolution from the D7000 is staggering."

    What is also staggering is your utterly transparent and over the top reaction to criticism of your pet...

    @xval

    Are you saying popularity is a guarantee of quality?

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    You don't need HDR to see the banding and noise in the shadows. Just try using a bit of dodge and burn.

    Most 'realistic' photographs are a long way from the bland default JPEGs that come from the...

    Hi Rishi, I agree and thanks for the review.

    Such 'real life' information is vital for newcomers. Not that I am one, but it's hard to demonstrate to people what all the data means in practice. ...

    "It's just pushing people to let their gear dictate everything for them, without any thought or skill required by the photographer."

    I assume you never do any post processing then. If...

    What this proves is that most consumers are very conservative and not very discriminating if the 'brand' has good publicity.

    But once disillusionment sets in, this can turn bad very quickly...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    Given that 'good' is relative, I disagree. There is no point in having ratings like Excellent, very good and good and nothing else. It should be Good, Average, Poor by the standards of other...

  • The D800 is not exactly new, it has already been replaced. The 7Dii was a very long time coming, and there was no technical reason for the buffer to be so small on the previous camera. Neither of...

  • Samsung still have an issue with brand recognition in the West as a serious camera brand. Hi-tech gadgets like smartphones and TVs are not generally equated with 'serious' technology like cameras....

  • Seems quite competitive. Shame this sensor is only available in a DSLR. That sensor would work great in a CSC camera with its built in PDAF points.

    I wonder how his daughter feels about that?

    I know quite a few of my friend's kids HATE being constantly photographed by their parents. I see that as an entirely healthy sign of independence. ...

    I was responding to the assertion that somehow NOT spending $1700 on a camera to shoot your kids is tantamount to parental neglect.

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview

    When growing up I don't remember my childhood being ruined by the poor quality of my dad's old Kodak. That $1700 is for your benefit, not your kids. If you cared about your kids you'd put the money...

  • Hi Thomas,

    Thankyou.

    And a good weekend to you too.

  • @Rick Knepper

    You can read what you like into a comment, but ad hominem insults are not very grown up, are they?

    This is a free site. You don't own it, though you seem to act otherwise.

    FYI I...

  • There is a limit to how much sample images can help you, since only a side by side comparison will show you any real differences, and they provide this with a review. What kind of post processing...
