  • darngooddesign: You've heard of this thing called a tripod, right? The point is that "selfie" is the current slang for "arm's length self-portrait", as opposed to the traditional self-portrait...

  • It should read "arm's length self-portraits".

  • When you evaluate a camera for gold awards and such, it makes sense to evaluate the body in isolation. But when you make a purchase recommendation for a system camera, shouldn't you also look at...

  • This is a bit old but more in line with my experience:

    I would be genuinely curious to see your results.

  • I expect there will be an update to the "high end pocketable compacts" roundup soon:

  • I expect they'll have an updated version of this soon:

  • Leica's Panasonics have around a 30% markup. Once add up the cost of the bundled software (Lightroom), better materials, better quality control (hopefully), better support (for sure), the price is...

  • AshMills: it does depend on what lenses you use. The matte screen is better for faster than f/2.8 (brighter, shows the true depth of field so than you compose and focus correctly), worse for slower...

  • You can reassign it to something you find useful.

  • BTW: For the suitability of a sensor for a high-end sports camera you mostly need to look at SNR in the mid-ISO range (which has zero impact on dxomark's summary score). The 7D does well there.

  • Their measurement data (if you know how to interpret it) is reliable and very useful. Their summary scores are near meaningless.

  • Have you tried a blind test? Shoot three images with both the 645D at 75/2.8 ISO 200 and the 1DSII at 50/2.0 ISO 100, crop the 1DSII image to match framing, carefully normalize color and...

  • Wide-angle is where you get meaningful size reduction in the lenses by designing for a smaller image circle. Normal to tele, it's not going to make much difference in the size of the lens, so they...

  • Sandyramirez: the crop factor is .78, so the equivalent to your 75/2.8 in 35mm-format is 58/2.2. You'll get virtually the same angle of view and much more subject isolation with, say, the zeiss...

  • noirdesir: that's mostly wrong. The mount (and size of mirror box) are indeed designed for a larger image circle. Everything else is not: the mirror, the prism and viewfinder, even some of the new...

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    Of course you can. But you won't have 24mm and, by the time you've cropped them to 100mm field of view you have a 1MP image at equivalent f/16. They're lovely cameras, but it makes no sense to...
