  • Your original post doesn't make much sense to me, but that's probably because you have certain conditions/restrictions in mind that are not clearly spelled out (maybe they were in the previous ...
  • But my visual acuity, whatever its limitations, is what I must rely on to judge how noisy a picture is. The more I keep separate the various factors that affect noise, the easier it is for me to ...
  • Since we're continuing a full thread, one of the more interesting posts to me was that of tkbslc, who, using the title I copied for this post, wrote: I am distrustful of any explanation that ...
  • Replied in congratulations!
    I laud you for your dedication in getting as realistic a viewing experience as possible; I have a couple of friends who have long felt as you do, and at one point I used a 3D adapter on my SLR.  ...
  • When it comes to my own pictures, they are good if they help me remember the place or event at which I took it. To this end, I endeavor to make pictures with natural-looking color and contrast, ...
  • Replied in nice article
    I don't often see much to interest me in this forum, but you've been on a roll lately providing links to helpful, informative articles.  Thanks!
  • Replied in thanks
    Thanks for the links--interesting, informative reading, most of which I hadn't seen before.
  • With FedEx and UPS I've had packages delivered to the wrong address, mistakenly returned to the sender, and, more commonly, left on the stoop to be stolen or damaged by the elements.  I've never ...
  • Some people, myself included, are fans of SLR viewfinders--mirrorless is never going to be a first choice for me simply because it lacks the type of viewfinder I've preferred for the past 40 years. ...
  • It's not that hard to find. Usually just Google the search terms "use tax" and the name of the state. http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/taxforms/01-156.pdf I live in the state of Washington, ...
  • Replied in Of course!
    Occasionally I get an itch to replace my old Samsung GX-1S and kit zoom with something better, and what catches my eye right now is a Canon 7D (which I think is one you've owned, and priced very ...
  • Replied in thanks
    No, I don't currently have a photo capable printer (I had an Olympus, but supplies became unavailable for it), but your response reminds me that I once had a page-size printer and scrapbook ...
  • Created discussions VGA files to print
    While I prefer on-screen viewing to prints, today's monitors are not as flexible as the CRT's of days gone by, and my old Mavica files (640 X 480) are looking woefully small.  I thought I might ...
  • Replied in no
    I think crop-sensor DSLR's are great.  Is there some problem with them that you see?
  • Replied in lost all hope
    Up until a few weeks ago I continued to expect to see positive changes from DPR and more options for challenge hosts. What finally dashed all hope of change for me was DPR's ignoring threads such ...
  • And not just image brightness.  Those teachers also use the exposure triangle to discuss creative parameters/trade-offs of motion blur, depth of field, and image noise.
  • Thanks for sharing this wonderful link.  Not only are we promised several more episodes in this series on the exposure triangle (which, as Marc Wallace explains, is the foundation for everything ...
  • That's a notion that I have to admit I just can't wrap my head around. How can the sensitivity of the material you're exposing to light not have an effect on the information that material is ...
  • As you noted in a previous thread, the ninth edition also had the concept of camera exposure, though they phrased it a bit differently: "It should be noted that the use of the word ‘exposure’ in ...
  • Replied in why the laughs?
    I was told the same thing when I bought my Samsung GX-1S, and they were right! I'm still using the Samsung, and 6 mp is more than enough. For that matter, a more recent acquisition is the Sigma ...
