  1. Clean images and good high iso performance is ok. Problem is that colors look like shi… on most new cameras. My Olympus E-420 has better color rendering than my Nikon D750. How comes?

  2. Wow I just checked the scores on a bunch of different cameras and they all fudged their ACTUAL ISO a ton! The only one I found that was actually damn near dead on its actual ISO used was the Pentax K1. Good on you Pentax for not lying about your ISO

  3. I would like to see a side by side print comparison of digital cameras like the Nikon D810 and maybe the Nikon F2 as about two weeks ago all of my equipment was stolen. My 4X5 Speed Graphic, My Nikon F2's with all 5 pcs of glass, my RB67 and my Bolex H16 movie camera are all gone. (Yes I am an old time film guy)

  4. Hi Tony! Love your videos bro and I am learning a lot!
    just a question..Please correct me if I am wrong. But from what I understand the size of the sensor has no bearing on how much light it receives. The only difference between crop and full is that you have less "image" at the same distance? Is that right?
    Thanks in Advanced. All the best. P

  5. TONY, WHICH CAMERA BODY BTWEEN THE OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 Mark II AND THE PANASONIC LUMIX WITH WI FI HAS THE BEST M4/3 SYSTEM WITH THE LOWEST ISO AS I NEED THE BETTER OF THE 2 FOR STILL PICTURES AND OK I AM LEARNING VIDEOS. I AM USED TO ASA AND AM JUST LEARNING BUT REALLY LOVE DRONE SHOOTING! DJI INSPIRE 2 TALES BOTH OLYMPUS AND PANASONIC M4/3 LENSES . I WANT TO BBUY A BODY, WHICH DO I PURCHASE AO I CAN USE MY DRONE LENSES? I JUST WANT THE BEST AS I CAN AFFORD THE BEST FOR SOME RELAXING PHOTO SHOOTING.  PLEASE HELP ME MAKE THE BEST CHOICE.  SCOT LINDSAY   IT WOULD BE GREEAR IF YOU COULD GET DJI TO USAE THE XT THERMAL CAMERA ON THE INSPIRE 2 ALSO  I TOOK IFARED PHOTOGRAPHY WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE 40 YEARS AGO AND NEED TO GET BACK INTO IT WITH MAKING MOVIES WITH IT TOO.

  6. I used to shoot in the Raw, but since i must make a copy of the Raw image to edit, and since this copy is Jpeg, i do away with work by shooting straight Jpeg since i would be editing the Jpeg and not the Raw……Any comment?, your advice is always appreciated…..Another question, when you say a camera body has an established ISO of 100 but can be pushed to 64, how low can you actually set this cameras ISO and is it reliable at 64?….I do not care what method they use to lower the posted ISO, what i am asking is it real?

  7. I can't translate Any of this in to a Visual ! not a geek …So as photography is a visual thing Show Me Images ! Find a nice meadow a hundred yards long , meandering stream then ( All the cameras ) (All the Lens ), (all on tripod) No clouds ! so light is somewhat constant ….Have every one attempt F64 style images …. same Starting line , Same Vantage point …Same basic subject ….No Bobble Heads or targets . …..otherwise No Cigar !

  8. I contacted Canon support abut what you are saying about that you have to multiply the aperture by the crop factor of what ever crop camera you are using. Here is the answer I got back.
    "Dear Jim
    Thank you for contacting Canon product support. I understand that you have a question regarding the aperture setting on an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, and I can assist you.
    The aperture is a unit of measurement that defines the size of the opening in the lens, that can be adjusted, to control the amount of light that can reach the camera's image sensor. Changing the camera body, does not affect the aperture value of the lens."
    If I am reading this right, they are saying if I put a 2.8 lens on a full frame or a crop camera the 2.8 is still a 2.8.

    Thanks Jim

  9. Really appreciate these videos. A Northrup show is about one of my favourite things to watch on TV. I also appreciate the situation of the pro studio photographer or gear enthusiast for whom it's important to stay on top of these IQ figures. Still, none of that is going to stop me pointing out that those graphs shown here would be almost flat if measured from high quality A1 size prints, or at full width on the best 4k monitors available today. A crap camera is likely not as crap as you think.

  10. Tony what’s wrong with your color? What on earth did you use for that recording? What ever it was the manufacturer should pay you to never use it again. Not a good advertisement for that camera!

  11. What's the base or native ISO for the GH4? I read 400, 800… No real evidence. And… Is the base/native ISO the same for photography and video? So if the base ISO would be 200 (without extended mode), that will be also for video?

  12. I know this video is not new, but I think the same principles apply. Having recently witnessed the release of Sonys 600mm lenses, I checked into the facts; both Canon and Nikon have lenses the same size. Forget about trekking or tenting with those lenses, they are huge! But for those purposes where you have to carry your gear, I still think MFT is a great setup. The combo of G9 and a 100-400 (equivalent 200-800 FF) would give you a very handy telephoto package of around 1.7 kilos. Actually long enough for birding and all kinds of wildlife. And yes; with more image noise. "But if you have to crop anyway". Cheers.
