Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

What's the Labour party got to do with it? They seem about as useless as the Tories so far as Brexit is concerned! No, I look at Kerslake as an ex chief of the Civil Service and therefore someone...

Re: ISO & Digital Sensors

Yes, that's what I said. ISO has nothing to do with full well capacity - only aperture and shutter speed (i.e. the number of photons hitting the pixels).


Perhaps - and the lack of a proper raw...

Re: ISO & Digital Sensors

Well, I think the article is spot on and describes very well how digital sensors react to exposure.

The ONLY way with digital to expose correctly for maximum DR and minimum noise is to expose...

Apple has an easier to use user interface and is arguably better for novices. However, you pay the...

Re: Canikon FF mirrorless

Canikon seems a reasonable phrase. Both manufacturers produce very similar cameras that represent the state of the art of digital SLR cameras. Together they also own the bulk of the market.

Re: Gliding

Yes, they're pretty common. Fold-away engines have been around for a while. There are two types - self-launching and sustainers (aka "turbos"). The difference is in their size & power. The...

Re: The Windows10 Disaster

My objection to Win 10 is on four main points really:

- It's so UGLY. Win 7 had a very consistent and cohesive UI design and I liked it. Win 10 is a dog's breakfast of mixed UIs (Metro + Win...

Re: The Windows10 Disaster

Yes, I agree. I hate Win 10 with a vengeance. Still, at least it's better than Windows 8!

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

It is an excellent image Ian. I sincerely doubt its impact could be improved by it being shot on film, or a Leica Monochrome. Excellent images transcend the capturing device.

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

I don't think it's true to say that film DR exceeds digital. This rather long and technical article by Roger Clark clearly shows that digital DR is significantly better than both slide and negative...

Re: A Monochrom(e) Oly?

Short of a Leica Monochrome, I think the closest you'll get with digital to pure mono is the Sigma Quattro. It has an additional mono only layer plus the other Fovean layering for colour.
