EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Fun Arias rant on APS-C vs. FF

Here is an article from Michael Reichmann, it is quite old, from 2008, that fit right in with this discussion. Like his photography or not, he knows what he is talking about.

A question to the more scientifically competent than I:
So, DSLRs have bigger lenses than rangefinders or other mirrorless cameras because there is a bigger distance between the end of the lens' flange and the sensor. Would it be possible for Canon or Nikon to make a mirrorless medium format camera that could use their existing stock of 35mm equivalent DSLR lenses?

They could but it wouldn't be worth it. 35mm lenses wouldn't have an image circle big enough to cover a MF sensor.

Hi dilbert.
Please could you show us a picture of yours to show us how it should be done, or if you don't have one perhaps a detailed explanation of the technique and processing needed to achieve no blown highlights. Whilst you at doing that the rest of us can take our pictures wih blown highlights and at least have something to show!

Cheers Graham.

I can't believe how many of these images have blown highlights.

This is one of the first ever sunset pictures that I took with a DSLR. Unfortunately it gets converted to sRGB for the web ...

Dull and lifeless.

The French will be so glad to hear you describe their capital city in that way.

This has nothing to do with where an image was taken, it's the depiction of it. That shot has no soul.

A photographer cannot capture what isn't there, so if there is no soul in that photograph then there is no soul in Paris.

Wow, that's really pathetic. Is that the best you have?

Well why don't you show me how it is done? After all, you've been shooting for 40 years so after that much time behind a camera, every click of your button must be gold.

Doesn't matter how long someone shoots, no one ever makes great photography with every click. Check your PMs.

This is ridiculous. Sad thing is, so is the US patent office, they will probably grant it. *sigh*

When are people going to learn it's the 12 inches behind the camera and NOT THE CAMERA.

Welcome to the thread Alex. It's nice to have a place for us old guys, huh? :D


I was a Velvia shooter, I don't understand the question "Too much colour!"  :D

Ha! Touche.


Hi Ed.
Too much colour? I would say that if the image is a true representation of the colour of the sky/reflection when captured then no, not too much colour, if however you have turned up the red then yes possibly too much colour for some!
I like it so IMHO not too much colour either way!
Is it a humble opinion if I add voice to it, am I shouting it (IMHO) I capitalise because it is an acronym?

Cheers Graham.


Well, it is enhanced but I've never had a problem with enhancement. If it was good enough for Adams it's good enough for me. I think he would have loved the digital age, it allows us to do the things he pioneered with black and white film and paper much easier and also do it in color.

Ed,

I also remember getting excited when XP2 came out and we could push it to 800 with good results. Iso is funny, I hovered between 25 and 125 for many years, now 12,800 is taken for granted, I really need to get me a 1DX.

If I wasn't shooting fast moving stuff, Tri-X was my go to film, love the grain from that film. The 6D does 12,800 pretty good and you'll save about 5k or so. haha

Finally got out today and did a bit of shooting.Too much color?

Working in a small town, high school football stadiums and basketball courts were pretty dimly lit, 3200 was sooooo much better than pushed Tri-X. I can't even guess how many rolls of that stuff I went through. I shot pretty much exclusively B&W back then for PJ, color was reserved for events and portraits and that was always neg film. Most of the chrome film I shot was just for myself and even then, it wasn't too much. I've always been fond of B&W even today.
