  • Good to know, thanks. I probably bought my Sunpak 383 in about 1999. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • I am concerned that my Sunpak may not work or worse may damage a D610, D700 or D800 - it only has one electrical contact whereas the cameras have multiple contacts. Perhaps it will still work, ...
  • Yes, the costs of Nikon flash units is something that bothers me about my next cam being a Nikon. Currently I have a Sunpak 383 flash which works fine on my Fuji although it is quite basic. What I ...
  • My camera has an audio recording feature but I am ashamed to admit that I have never used it. I always mean to carry a notebook and pen but usually forget. My main use for it would be to note ...
  • Hi Alex, I prefer the effect when viewing the image in the original size in the new browser window. In this window the eyes nose and mouth being so much darker than the hairline and other details ...
  • Cute little guy and I think the bounce flash works well. I like to bounce my flash also and also have to set it in manual as it does not talk with my camera. The only issue is I wouldn't get him ...
  • Nice pictures, 1 seems to be through a mirror, 2 you are the subject no :-) , 3 nice pic, 4 also nice tells a bit of a story with the 3 people in the background, 5 you caught him well. It actually ...
  • Hi Again Phil, just had a look at your flickr page, very nice images :-) Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • When I first bought some lenses, I bought filters for them. But after a while I realised I was just making the auto focus system's job harder. Now I just make sure I always use the lens hood for ...
  • Alright Chris, so you got me to look at the homepage of ePhotozine.com. I didn't particularly fall in love with it. What next? Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com ...
  • Hi Phil, nice pictures. I did think the first one could have had the land lightened a bit, the hills are very dark on my monitor. Then the beach full of umbrellas made me think, it is obviously hot ...
  • I delete relentlessly .. First I review images in the camera at free moments during shoots and delete a bunch there and then. Then when I upload them into my computer and check the images in large ...
  • My next camera will be weather sealed .. but none .. unfortunately of my lenses are Grr ... Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Hi Tom, nice pic. I can relate to your above comment also because I am looking for landscape views, but I am located in the middle of a forest! :-) Most places I look, there are trees! Mark_A
  • Hi majestic0110, Having looked at your image at 100% I am not really sure about it being muddy at the sides, it looks pretty sharp to me across the frame. But may I compliment you on the ...
  • I can remember taking pictures with an early digital camera which stored the images on a computer disk embedded in the back. The pixel count was tiny and in every image there were jagged lines on ...
  • Replied in Do you need it?
    Surely the question is do you need this chart? In camera metering is so good that you can easily calculate your own aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Does this simple process need to be made more ...
  • I like the above portrait and can see it winning competions, it is well composed and sympathetic. For me this fashion image is not a winner, the model is overpowered by the materials in the shot ...
  • Hi TFumia, I like both images. The first is contemplative, nice that the books are surrounded by darkness suggesting a deep bookshelf, good detail on them and they are sharp with no sign of ...
  • Hi NearerNirvana, I live in the UK, while I rarely if ever get to proper deserts or rainforests, it does rain plenty here :-) Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/ ...
