Yeah, just make sure no presets are applied during import and make sure the camera calibration profile is set to comera neutral.

In the Import pane expand 'Apply during import' and make sure 'None' is shown under develop settings.

Ignore button still works, both ways.

Better than bickering back and forth.

Thanks, didn't know this forum had an ignore button..

Not to be the dad here, but take it easy, guys. Gojira1976 is excited about photography and just enjoying sharing/talking with others. It stinks to see so much talk about behavior instead of cameras/photography. He has a lot of enthusiasm and (from my point of view) a great attitude. Besides, Nikon people always do act a little strange anyway, so we should overlook it. ;)


Okay, I did some comparisons, and figured I need to just calm down on the switching to Nikon thing. I hate selling gear anyway. I enjoy buying it, but selling is a pain (negotiating, shipping, transactions, etc. Yuck).

So here's what I found on DP review with their studio comparison tool. It's a great tool, and what I like about all of DP review's work is that they allow you the rights to use all their photos for comparison and printing purposes, including re-posting pics for comparisons.

I compared the Nikon D5100 to my camera, the Canon T2i, and then for extra measure put in the Nikon D3100 and my old camera the Canon Rebel XS.

It appears to me, from multiple perspectives, that there isn't enough reason for me to change from my current camera (t2i) to the Nikon D5100. I guess I need to hold my horses and just stick to my original plan of going full frame eventually. I want either the Canon 5D mark II (or mark III) or perhaps the Nikon full frame cameras. What I mostly enjoy is shooting people anyway (in natural light) so that's probably the way to go.

Not about the above comparison: You really have to do a lot of exploring to find out the strengths and weaknesses of these cameras in various lighting situations.
For example, in the top photo the Nikon 5100 is better at detail than the canon t2i, but in the second picture the T2i is doing better at getting the detail right on the watch.

Colors make a difference. It seems Nikons get the blacks better and Canons get reds better. There's a lot to consider, but I'm not seeing the huge difference in photo quality claimed by Snapsort.

These cameras are all well-matched and, truth be told, really need a good photographer behind them to get the shot.


Thank you. bw!

I don't see too much of a difference either on those pics..

I do see a big difference by going full frame. Other than the lovely IQ and big detailed files, seeing through a BIG 100% viewinder is amazing. It reminds me why I love medium format.. asp-c viewfinders are tiny! As you mentioned, waiting may be the best thing..

You think APS-C viewfinders are tiny? Try the Olympus s43 viewfinder sometime! ;)

I think anything FF is out of Mike's budget going by his previous posts.

I suggest wait for D600 or the Canon cheap FF to be released. Going from Entry-APC to advance-APC (I did it with T2i -> 7D), all you gain are better control, ergonomics and AF, the image quality will remain very similar (actually worse since 7D has a strong AA filter)

Just bite the bullet and go for FF, it's a HUGE improvement :D

D600 or maybe 7DII? :lol:

5DII and D700 will be good choice around $1500 or lower depend on the release prices of the next gen cheap FF

Yes, friends, budget is limiting at this point, but not so much over the course of a year. I have a pretty good day job (been a teacher for almost twenty years) and we get by alright. If I save up I can get there.

I don't want the 5D classic for a few reasons, mostly because of the screen, the no-dust-protection, and more, but it's a great camera for sure. The 5DII is pretty much what I want, but I don't mind waiting to see what happens.

I don't really care much for video. I rarely shoot video (and am less likely to watch it). I love taking pictures, however. So if a full frame came out that was super cheap and meant to be minimalist then I would be all over it. The problem for manufacturers is not the camera or the physics. It's the cost of the chips used to make the sensors. Very expensive when you get to full frame. The area of the chip is more than two times the area of APS-C.

In other words, you can double the size of your APS-C sensor and you still haven't reached the size of full frame.

Much dinero, but it won't be long until ff becomes more affordable, and maybe someday medium format will drop significantly in price.


Thank you. bw!

hehe, never tried a M4/3, my sight has never been the best so using a big VF helps a lot.. and to add, I've been thinking of getting my dad a Olympus EP3 to replace his ageing D70..
