Here we go again... Geometry has nothing to do with the kind of image area you use Yunil.... you get distortions!

I feel sad for the technical cameras designed by you...

A lot of these Z printers are in Fedex-Kinkos and Office Depots now here in Atlanta. It's kinda overkill for them but they like em because they don't have to teach people to do nozzle checks and head cleaning. And they rarely need service. They are always just ready to go and you don't really need any experience to do decent bw either. Every university photo art department should have a few of them, but guess what, none of them do because HP never promoted it. Maybe they will in the future. They are quite interested in designers, and edit promote that, but if they aren't careful Epson is going to take that away from them too.

Losing focus is not a problem for CMOS. As long as you understand what is mean by the blue overlaps the orange in my figure, you should be able to know why I'm specifically addressing your misleading statement regarding image quality.

You've made really good use of the sand mixed with snow.

I like how you seemed to embrace less than ideal conditions.

You are no stranger to bad weather yourself Matt, I gather from your postings. There are some good skies there.

Thanks to all for the additional feedback.

As I take more and more shots it appears to me that Pete Bridgwood's settings are indeed suspect.  He did warn he was using a pre-production X-Pro2 camera with pre-production firmware.

Tonight I worked on shots from my wooded backyard.  Spider webs, yard art, deciduous and conifer trees and tonight the settings that looked most natural to me are:

Amount  - 20
Radius   - 0.8
Detail    - 40
Masking - 50

Tomorrow may yield different results as I continue to learn.

Despite the fact that I thought that the ALPA tilt was a base one rather than a mechanism that tilts the board by its center, if a camera looses focus when the lens is tilted, it is a proof that the lens hasn't been tilted by its entrance pupil. The focusing system of the lens (either by a helical displacement between the cells or by adjusting the distance between the image area and the lens rear cell) is totally irrelevant and can't -in either case- correct for the position of the entrance pupil. What one does by re-focusing the lens, is correcting for the entrance pupil distance from the image area, it doesn't mean (nor it is the case) that the entrance pupil is moved back to the same point where it was before (although the distance from the image area is the same) and thus, the system looses its geometry (the entrance pupil isn't positioned anymore at an axis that crosses the image area at its center, perpendicular to it).

Losing focus is not a problem for CMOS. As long as you understand what is mean by the blue overlaps the orange in my figure, you should be able to know why I'm specifically addressing your misleading statement regarding image quality.

I'm done with gear. Honestly.
I mean for personal use.
All I want is a decent footage in a standart codec backed into
A cell phone.
Even the BM minis are still too annoying for me.
I want no bag, no rig, nothing that can not fit into a jacket or trouser pocket.
But when it comes to cell phones, I am useless because
I do not follow the latest tendencies and when I tried to read
Reviews about mobile phones and motion imagery it was clear that the reviewers
Were not really "film makers" to use a shortcut. I want to avoid hassles
In post. Files that can be imported everywhere with zero transcoding.
I did some testings with some unstandart messy files (variable fps, squared, etc...) in Lightworks and
It takes them all in bin without transcode as if it was a good Prores, wich is great
And surprised me. I was expecting issues, and no.


So I rather ask here if some of you could recommend
Some models based on experience. Not only Apple but Android also.
Thanks.

Hey guy, what d'you do about angle of view?

Trying to plan our first trip to Arizona next year with Antelope Canyon high on the list. What is the best time of year to get the best light. I would also appreciate which company provides the best guide service for Antelope. Thanks in advance!

Mark

I guess it depends on what you mean by best light. If your looking to get "light shafts" in your images you will want to be in Upper Antelope Canyon in the summer months mid-day. If your looking for softer lighting you would want to be in either canyon earlier/later in the day. Both canyons are crowded most of the year so make advanced reservations and take the photographers tour. The upper canyon is an easy walk-in type canyon with lower being a tighter fit and lots of ladders to climb. Both canyons photograph differently so take your time and enjoy. If you have the energy and the time you could do lower in the morning and upper later in the day and head over to Horseshoe Bend for sunset. That's a lot of shooting in one day so I would plan on doing it over 2 days. Kens Tours is who you can make your reservations through.  :)
