The DX-format D500 and FX-format D750 battle it out

Who really needs a full-frame D-SLR?
The Big Debate

– You get much more camera for your money – the D500’s specs easily outstrip the D750’s
– DX lenses are smaller, cheaper and lighter to carry around – and you can use FX lenses on DX Nikons too
– The 1.5x ‘crop factor’ makes telephoto lenses effectively 1.5x more powerful
– The smaller DX sensor can’t quite match a full-frame FX sensor for all-round image quality
– The smaller sensor leads to increased depth of field, which can be useful, but can also make beautiful bokeh harder to achieve
– At shorter focal lengths you’ll need to invest in DX lenses, which will be of little use if you upgrade to a full-frame Nikon later

d500vsd750aFX – PROS
– The larger sensor area opens the way for higher ISO sensitivities or higher resolution sensors that don’t sacrifice overall quality
– Depth of field is shallower, giving images more spatial depth and attractive background blur
– If you want to turn pro, a full-frame Nikon is best both for quality and pro accessories
– Even an ‘affordable’ FX-format Nikon like the D750 is a pretty expensive purchase
– You’ll need to invest heavily in lenses to exploit the quality potential of the full-frame format
– FX cameras are mostly (not always) bigger and heavier, and not designed for novices or those still learning

Ben Cherry Nature X-Photographer – Taking the best from the X-T1 into the X-T2

BenCherry08a BenCherry08b BenCherry08c BenCherry08d BenCherry08e“My name is Ben Cherry, I’m an environmental photojournalist and Fujifilm X-Photographer. I’ve been using the X Series for over three years now and was given the tremendous responsibility of being a part of the X-T2 project. Its predecessor, the X-T1, was a revelation for the X Series and was my go-to camera for the previous two years. With a huge viewfinder, weather sealing, 8 frames per second and an articulating screen, what wasn’t to like with the previous generation? Well the X-T2 takes all the best features of the X-T1 and builds on them, as Fujifilm continues to evolve its inspiring X Series system. In this first of three videos I look at the key differences between the cameras.”

“In the next video we will be looking at the key features of the X-T2 in more detail, with a particular focus on features for nature photographers. (Coming soon)”

Choisir l’appareil le mieux adapté à l’usage auquel on le destine

Voici de beaux outils, pointus et rapides, qu’il faut apprivoiser si l’on veut passer au stade supérieur de la photographie, celui à partir duquel on construit ses images au lieu de les découvrir.
