lamenting Canon's supposed lack of DR and extolling the virtues of Exmor
See there you go again. Here you try to bring up doubt that Canon is behind in DR or that even if they are that it could ever mean anything. And yet when you finally get called out and backed into a corner as in your post later on, you are like "who me? fanboy? nobody here ever tries to admit that Exmor doesn't have more DR"
So which is it??? You try to have it both ways for everything.
There is a difference between 'Exmor has more DR than Canon' and 'Canon doesn't deliver enough DR'. There's a difference between 'Exmor allows better low ISO shadow pushing than Canon' and 'Canon sensors deliver poor IQ'. In each case, the former is a statement of fact that is generally accepted here, the latter is a judgement based on an individual's personal needs and values. Some people just can't understand or accept that their own needs and values aren't statements of fact with which everyone must agree.
That's not 'having it both ways', that's the ability to distinguish between fact and opinion.
and don't forget your buddy Keith today was posting all over here today in other threads about how the extra DR is a joke and is only needed by incompetent photographers who always miss the exposure and who have no post-processing skills and that the only point and use for more DR is to overcome poor photography skills of incompetent users.
Aye. I don't much appreciate Keith's assumptions that all problems are the result of idiot photographers who don't know how to take a photo or process one in post, or that no one has ever tried Capture One or more advanced NR tools and techniques.
One thing we can assume is that our chances are better at taking a once in a lifetime photograph if we weren't here reading and posting on these forums.
Indeed. They are also better when it isn't rainy and stormy outside. Which, as it so happens, has been the case for several days here in Colorado now. When it's clear, I'm out doing photography, one way or another. It's just been a crazy year for weather, and a poor year for birds. Wildlife has still panned out pretty well, though.
Sounds like you are ready for a high iso, weather sealed, high frame rate camera so you can go out in that weather and take photos! I would be more inclined to take a 1700.00 camera out in it than a 6000.00 one.
