ЭТО – КОММЕНТАРИЙ К СТАТЬЕ: My friend used to shoot on the full-frame Nikon D800 and now he starts to use the Fujifilm X-T2. What is the result?, оставленный читателем (нажмите на ссылку, чтобы почитать саму статью) Alex.

Thanks for the answers and for the tip-off! I’ll definitely check out her blog. I myself go to “Patriot” SUV; therefore, based on the price, I prefer used the Nikon D7100. What difference does it weigh how many kilograms the camera weighs and how much space does it take? It is important that the bear does not eat, and the basket with berry weighs immeasurably more.

In Finland, the climate is warmer than in Siberia, but I am asking because the problem has not been resolved. I shot a story with video in the factory; superzoom camera did not normally show the picture in 15 minutes. It is not clear where and how he focused, DSLR kept working for half an hour (with the screen warmed by hand), then it became unclear what he was doing at all.

Beautiful subjects are just in the cold, when a fog or haze is formed. Near the Lake Baikal and large ice-free rivers, and if you carry the camera on yourself in a backpack or in your bosom, then it gets foggy in the frost (from the vapor of the body you see), you need a car or a package, but in the cold to wear it. With photography, just the optical viewfinder saves. At -20 of Celsius, by the way, the camera can be carried as long as necessary in the cold, the screen works without remarks, if it is not touch (hands quickly freeze and the sensor does not respond, this is the same for the phone).

The mirrorless cameras are the future, it is understandable (I would have bought it myself), but the price for the cameras themselves and for optics, a small range of the optics park, the lack of used optics is still slowing down the process.

Alexander, all the arguments about the quality of Fujifilm or Nikon, Canon are equally flawed. First, all Fuji cameras produce red (pink) tint. Plus, it is evident that many photos there are quite a lot of red lights or red colors on the walls, which are not removed by treatment with only redrawing layers. Where Fujifilm (as well as any other camera) or the photographer during photo processing attempted to pull highlight clippings or shadows on the skin, the skin itself has turned stable “dirty” tone. In this respect, even Nikon with its green tint is much closer “to the truth” (in the shadows, a little tanned skin and the truth has a greenish hue due to venous blood).

In general, optics, electronics, and printers so imperfect that photographed your hand, one can only marvel how inaccurate color transmitted (even with the most careful treatment) on the monitor as well as on a professional photo printer of 6 colors.

The Nikon D3100 with KIT lens allows to shoot approximately 40% of the images, but if you have a good “wide-angle lens” and you can add a portrait prime, it will be quite good. Regarding the same ease of operation, then, for example, because of the large palm, small mirrorless keep extremely inconvenient, quickly tired hand, in the buttons or the touch screen to be picked – so even torture, especially in the cold, or with one hand. It is much easier to keep the ax handle with a birch or the Nikon D7100, for example. Photographers with a small “female” palm, on the contrary, it is more convenient mirrorless like Fuji.

So, for each person it’s individually. Regarding safety – a matter of chance: in our winter trip through the mountains of Khamar-Daban, a friend broke his lens from Fujifilm for 100,000 rubles, and my cheap Tamron at the same fall (albeit with a plastic hood) does not hurt at all.

“Take Fuji. RAF has to be treated in Capture One »- if it’s comfortable and not expensive. There are no photos that can’t be shot with the set of Nikon D610 + some cheap primes and zooms of Samyang and Tamron (manual or with the “screwdriver”) + Chinese flashes and flashlights. But APS-C Fuji such restrictions are, for example, the starry sky, the landscape (it will be much narrower, the corners at wide angle degraded, etc., you will have to do a panorama). Again, Fuji for the money will be 2 times more expensive.

RAW treatment in Lightroom with Nik Collection goes much faster, especially for household photos, such as those presented in the article.

Concerning the photos – if you did not do the processing, except for compressing to 500 KB, then, most likely, the photo in cool colors is made on the Nikon D800 with native sensor. In warm colors, based on the features of the sensors from Sony and Toshiba – on the Nikon D40.

Lenses without a 10-x zoom in Raw can not be distinguished. Based on the DOF, the photo with the largest blurring of the background could be made at 55 mm. But this is more a guessing game. APS-C zooms in closer and enlarges the background, but here you can’t guess, although photo 3 is very similar to what was shot by APS-C camera.

I agree with you, since you are engaged in these lenses, you watch, etc. I also watch, and I see that all the lenses for Fujifilm (and there are not many of them) are sold in Moscow and St. Petersburg, some in Chelyabinsk. I see on page 1 the price of 10’000 rubles: “Fujinon 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 new.” All the rest – far more than for 20’000 rubles. Why do I need such a focal lenght with such a dark hole?

Or the used Fujifilm XF 10-24 mm F4 R OIS X Mount for 49’000 rubles. My Tamron 10-24mm in Khabarovsk bought for 8’000 rubles (about 6 times cheaper). Transfer from Moscow, I understand, when for 7-10 thousand I order the old iron Tamron from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, remembering about the adjustment of the front and back focus in my body. But paying for a cat in a bag with a transfer from Moscow, even for 25’000 rubles, is scary. My prime lens Nikon 35mm f1.8 I bought for 5’000 rubles. Buying fix Nikon 50mm 1.4 can be somewhere for 12’000 rubles, and Nikon 85 mm 1.8 – for 15000 rubles.

The Nikon 35mm f/1.8 I do not use practically: I shoot the shoulder portrait from f/1.8 – the risk that my clothes will not be sharp anymore. If I really want, I take 90 mm or 75 mm for 2.8, because the laws of optics allow blurring several times stronger than 35 with f1,2, since DOF is extremely small.

An external flash YongNuo Speedlite YN565EX will save a flat picture (for 4’000 rubles only), installed on a tripod and ignited with a camera flash. And indeed, all my 5 lenses together cost 27’000 rubles for 2 years. So, stories about 70’000 rubles shock me and awe: for this money, I better fully equip the car with a power kit, winches, Hi-Jacks, mud tyres, etc. Or I’ll buy a lot.
I have a fleet of optics covering the focal length from 10 to 300 mm + a standard fast prime lens 35 mm and a portrait-macro Tamron 90 mm. Yes, there is no stabilizer, but there are 2 tripods and 2 flashes, a lot of cheap Soviet equipment – lamps, tripods for shooting panoramas and video, video light, a cell phone save sign perfectly. Years on 5 will suffice.

The fact that you are fond of new photographic equipment, choose it, you have enough money to buy – just wonderful. God grant, each person would have such a hobby or work so as not to spend money on booze and grass. I just feel sorry for that kind of money, especially since the “masterpiece” button does not appear.

I’m going to put a better 100 rubles on Webmoney and download a new course Zamorin on a folder. His colleague, Sofia, perfectly conducts lessons on photo processing in Photoshop and Lightroom, proving that the technical parameters of the camera are not too important.

Peace to you, I apologize if you are offended or offended somewhere!
