    I don't use the cap since I am always extremely aware of the time the camera chamber is exposed. I've perfected changing lenses with the camera facing down to a military precision drill. It's ...
  • Selective WB area processing is extremely easy (and efficient) to do from a RAW file, in Lightroom. PK
  • (continued)

    Still lacking reviews of long-ago launched but current DSLRs while keeping justifying their nonexistence with the time it took for a manufacturer to provide a review sample at launch...

  • @Barney,

    That was a tongue-in-cheek reference to how the repeated lack of reviews of some of the 2 major DSLR manufacturers flagship models over the years has (not) been explained and how it...

  • Oh,oh!...Don't go there.
    You'll be forcibly-explained, with nonsensical arguments, how it actually makes sense.

  • Tim, I can not thank you enough for this detailed contribution. It is helping me pinpointing the problem. I am now considering the possibility that I may have been wrongly led by suggestion, i.e. ...
  • ...a moderate flux vacuum cleaner adaptable to cameras specific mounts would be a plus as a pre-step before actually cleaning the sensor, after using a camera in the described conditions. It would ...
  • Much appreciated. It means that, with your Olys and under this particular scenario (action photography in micro dust environment) you don't have to worry any more than care for the occasional blast ...

  • Created discussions Cheap and useful.
    Sometimes the simplest, most useful things are right beneath our noses and we fail to see them. I certainly did, until last week. These bags are extremely usefully for our hobby. http://www.ebay.co ...
