Canon GP-E2

The Canon GP-E2 is slightly larger than the Nikon GP-1 because it requires one AA battery. But this proves to be immaterial; the cable-free mounting on current Canon DSLRs is a far more elegant solution. The GP-E2 also has a 3-way On/Off/Log switch, offering direct control over its mode of operation and allowing easy power saving (just switch it to Off).

Digital compass orientation

Of particular note with the Canon GP-E2 is its digital compass option, which thus allows an orientation in degrees (magnetic) to be associated with the image, not just coordinates and altitude (e.g., north-east). This can be quite useful information for landscape type images. Nikon’s GP-1 has no such option.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
