Peeking in the oven is the no 1 reason for failed soufflé.

Yeah, maybe so, but if I leave the oven light on whilst cooking a pizza, I can, by observation, judge when it's ready to be developed into a meal.

Two camera test.

Glad to see the humour hasn't gone from the forum. That's the best way to rain on a troll's parade

We have no need for new fangled things such as oven lights. My wife uses the same principle used in the Vatican when a new Pope is elected. She simply waits for the smoke

Re: Two camera test.

Moved to the "lounge"

Hopefully we will get some good tips on the merits of Induction vs Open flame...

We live in hopes Graham. Anything has to be better than politics.

Re: Two camera test.

Here's a vote from me for built in high level ovens with glass doors and internal lights. It's really easy to watch things cooking. Haven't burnt anything yet!

Re: Two camera test.

Interestingly, that Cambridge in Colour calculator says a 4/3 sensor still isn't diffraction limited at f11:
http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tut...hotography.htm

So, either that calculator is wrong, or there's more going on in a real life situation than it reveals.

I hated most of physics at school so claim to know nuffin', but as a generalisation across most m4/3 Pro lens reviews on those sites that measure lens resolution, the curves don't start to dip down until the Aperture gets smaller than f8.

Re: Two camera test.

Personally I use aperture as a DoF control and manipulate exposure using the other two variables. (Yes I know ISO is a volume control, but it alters the effective sensitivity, and thus exposure.) Depending on FL I can easily limit aperture to f8.

Re: Two camera test.

To paraphrase:

"Tried the RZ67 with 50 mm against a D810 with 28-300 at 28 mm.

Both at F8.

Comparing the Nikon to a 100% crop from the RZ67 we were in fuzzy vision land with the Nikon. Added to which, dynamic range using Ektar 100 was miles better than the Nikon.

Thats the Nikon problem ..take a group of 20 people ..they try to take a crop of a couple of cute kids and you cannot. Its not there .

So I won't be swopping my RZ for a D810 any time soon though if you want to play about in RAW you could make some improvements I am sure.

One image was for the bridal brochure of an international hotel group, the other image was for a wedding. And no, I'm not telling you which was for whom.



I am guessing that the second image was taken on the D4, simply because of the very clearly defined depth of field.

Both are stunning images irrespective of what they were taken on.

I have used my E-M5 with 12 ~ 40 zoom lens for professional purposes for several years now, and have always found it to provide excellent results. Indeed, clients often comment on the quality of images in my reports.

The µ43 sensor clearly has its limitations, but it also provides better depth of field and smaller equipment size, which for my purposes are much more important.

I have only recently switched to the OM-D E-M1, and only because my son has defected to the Nikon camp using a D750 for most of his work. (He does still use a Pen and 'borrows back' my E-M1 form time to time.)

The Nikon D750 is indeed a superb camera, with a big, bright optical viewfinder, but it is also extremely big and heavy, and is certainly not something that I would ever consider for that reason.

If anybody is interested we can take some comparative photographs on the two cameras and will post them here.
