John McMillin's recent activity

  • I'm very sorry to hear this. Maybe I'm partly to blame. I discovered one Metz product in the mid-'80s and liked it so much that I still use it every day. I even have a drawer with two backup 45...

  • To MayaTlab0-I have no technical info, but a little historical background. Stabilized lenses first arrived in binoculars, used to steady the direct optical image. No sensor stabilization was...

  • To The Euler ID-- You make an EXCELLENT point about the limits of lens-based stabilization. You can't correct rotational movement (roll) by shifting lens elements around, but it's easy to fix at...

  • It would be easier than moving my nose to one side of my face.

  • Why would you assume that the shutter button must be pressed by the tip of the finger? I use an a850, before that an a700 and a KM 7D. With all of them, the button falls between the first and...

  • Just one more step towards the goal of replacing the a900. Sheesh, i didn't realize the a7 lacked a front control dial until now.

  • Why do you think it's no good for landscapes? Most landscape photos taken in the past 100 years were made between 24-75mm 35mm-e.

  • The best reason to buy a mirror less is to get a smaller and lighter camera. So doesn't it make sense to provide smaller and lighter lenses for it? That hardly seems worth arguing about. And bring...

  • Commented on Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article

    This unsightly absurdity should have been announced last April 1st. It illustrates the desperation of today's second-string camera makers, though. First, they took away the reflex viewfinder,...

  • Thank goodness that this camera finally has stabilization to correct for "yam and pitch." My attempts to get sharp photos of sweet potatoes tossed into the air have been such failures so far...

  • It's a leaf shutter, with full-power flash sync up to 1/1000, and faster with some f-stop settings. That's a huge assist to daylight fill flash usage! DPR used to list flash sync with its specs...

  • No, but I can add an accessory to the LX7 for just $150 and gain tilting capability besides. for less than the x30. But EVFs stink in bright outdoor situations, if they're really bright. I shoot in...

  • Just glancing at the front photo of the x30, I get the irrational impression that Fujifilm believed a large logo was a more important use of space than the OVF window.

    Now I'm doubting their...

  • Phooey! The X30 discards the one unique feature of its predecessors, the OVF, and joins the me-too list of lookalike compacts. So why would I want to use this rather than my LX7, which has 24mm and...

  • Or imagine making a mistake with the stubby little pencils and the note cards when you wrote down the call number. Way, way up at the top stack, you can't find the book, and it's five flights of...

  • Sounds like a perfect match. Both C and M are big, coasting on market dominance from past achievements. Both are complacent, slow to respond to new products and developments (mirrorless, tablets,...

  • What, no wood grip? At that price, I want the whole thing to be made of mahogany, with platinum trim..

  • This is the "weird" 8x10-inch size that you can buy a frame to fit anywhere frames are sold? The aspect ratio that's been a standard for fine art for hundreds of years? No, you want the 3:2 ratio...
