'limitations of DOF', what nonsense. But unfortunately we all know what it means - the sensor of the Nikon 1 system and the focal lengths that follow from that, have more depth of field than 'equivalents' from larger sensors. And within the restricted, rigid dogma of what passes for thinking in many of these chatter shops, this is a bad thing right? Wrong!
I wrote this in the post for one of my replies.
'Limitations of DOF' works both ways. For some uses too much is a limitation, for other uses too little is a limitation. The other point to make is that DOF is just as dependant on focal length and subject to camera distance as it is on lens aperture or sensor size.
The best way to proceed is surely to acknowledge that we pick what we want for what we need to achieve and to simply dismiss one system because it doesn't fit with what we do, when it would suit someone else perfectly is, I would suggest, not particularly helpful.'
Here are some examples of shallow depth of field from different cameras and different lenses, including a Nikon 1 camera. So which exhibit the 'limitations of DOF' ??
