What annoys you probably the most about your digicam?

If there’s one factor that photographers can do effectively no matter their ability degree, it’s complain! And there are few who complain about cameras fairly in addition to Chris and Jordan at DPReview TV. On this video, they discuss what they imagine the 5 most annoying quirks on cameras in the present day. Though they don’t restrict their quirks to a selected mannequin and even model of digicam, it does present that no model is de facto excellent.

I’m certain all of us might provide you with a wholesome listing of issues that annoy us about our chosen digicam or model, although. I shoot Nikon for stills and Panasonic for video, and I’ve undoubtedly obtained some complaints. I’d point out just a few of them later. For now, although, right here’s Chris and Jordan’s listing.

  • 1:04 – Sony’s lack of in-camera uncooked processing
  • 2:33 – OM System OM-1 10-bit profiles
  • 3:36 – Separate topic detection and face detect menus
  • 5:28 – GH6 punch-in magnifier
  • 6:48 – HDR confusion
  • 9:03 – Honourable point out

I’ve to be sincere, the dearth of in-camera uncooked processing isn’t actually a difficulty for me. My Nikons have had the power to do primary edits to photographs in-camera for years and I can’t recall ever utilizing it. Not even as soon as. Chris and Jordan are in a novel state of affairs with that one, although, as they level out within the video. They typically get cameras means forward of launch time earlier than there’s any assist for them in Lightroom, Photoshop or Seize One. And if there’s no in-camera processing of the uncooked recordsdata to spit out a jpg with just a few modifying tweaks then they’re just about caught with the common in-camera jpg on the time of taking pictures. For the remainder of us although… Have you ever ever used in-camera uncooked processing?

The GH6 challenge that they point out isn’t a difficulty for me, both, as a result of I don’t have a GH6. However I do have a GH5, three G80s and two GX80s (that’s the G85 and GX85 for Individuals) and I’ve one large challenge with them that forestalls me from actually utilizing any of them for stills and that’s the dearth of steady taking pictures flash assist. My Panasonic GH5 can shoot as much as 12fps but when I’ve obtained my Godox XPro-O set off for Panasonic within the hotshoe, the flash fires on the primary shot once I jam my finger down on the button after which it simply sits there taking pictures no extra photographs.

Apparently, if I put the Godox XPro-N for Nikon in there, which has no communication with Panasonic aside from the centre “set off” pin, it’ll shoot constantly at full velocity and the flash will fireplace each time. In fact, I get no HSS with the Nikon set off. Similar take care of the G80 and GX80. Panasonic’s newer cameras aren’t any totally different. In order for you steady taking pictures with HSS, you must purchase a Panasonic flash. They power you to purchase their overpriced and underpowered speedlight in an effort to get these options you solely want when not utilizing an on-camera flash – like steady taking pictures with HSS!]

Be aware: I did warn you photographers wish to complain!

So far as Nikon goes, my greatest grievance with them for years was their video capabilities. Nikon’s DSLRs… Effectively, they suck fairly hardcore for video – regardless of being the primary firm to supply a DSLR that would really shoot video – which is why I solely use them for stills and I’m completely pleased with them for that. They appear to have mounted numerous these points as of late with mirrorless, however I’m but to leap on the Z mount practice. I’m not totally certain I’m going to but, both.

What do you shoot? and what’s your greatest grievance about it?
