  • I would like to create photo-books (3 or 4) for myself not for a serious portfolio. I'm hoping some people here have used these kind of books facilities and can get me feedback or have suggestions ...

  • Submitted a challenge entry World Cup Caliber Skier, 1/800 sec moment
    Last weekend, I ventured in an aspect of photography I hadn't tried yet, sports.
I went to a FIS (Fédération International de Ski) race last Sunday (Feb. 7) to get some experience shooting a sport event, since I'm skier with a family of racers, this was a comfortable environ to start with. 
I knew there would be three world cup caliber skiers at the race, Patrick Biggs, J.P. Roy and Julien Cousineau.
This shot is of Patrick Biggs, former Canadian Team member, Olympian and World Cup skier and four time Europa Cup winner, he is from our region, Ottawa, Canada.

  • Hi Brad09
    I agree. I purchased the X30 after trying the Sony in the store and it's just not the camera for me for the same reasons you mentioned, not as much fun.
    I already took the Fuji X30...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Canada Aviation and Space Museum

With its wing-like shape and its reflective steel shell (reminiscent of traditional hangars), the architecture respects the spirit of the museum. This shot taken on a snowy night.

  • Hi, I have downloaded the manual in PDF, and I have bookmarked the manual so I can use the links. I think what you are suggesting is download as HTML so we can use the links on the PC without ...
  • That's correct. I have the pdf bookmarked, but that only works if I'm connected. So I wondered which other ' ones ' Photoreddi was referring to, maybe it's the same one and it was just a typo on ...
  • Hi, Very interesting, it worked so thank you very much for that! You mentioned 'one of the manuals', have you found one that is useable?  :) Their pdf, I just loose patience with all the scroll up ...
