  • Don't be sorry! :)It was just my first time cleaning it. Now I know what works. Nothing really, unless you finish up with a dry cloth. Probably diluted washup liquid will work, too, but I don't...
  • I just made a small chip on my Pro1 Digital UV filter from vigorous rubbing in order to clean a tiny spot of saliva. I tried dry microfiber cloth at first; it just smeared a 1000x larger area. Then...
  • Bad news for you... At least for the PAL models, 1080i50 doesn't have 50 Hz temporal resolution, but 25 Hz. That's 25 images per second from the sensor, interlaced to 50 fields per second. Bobbing...

    I guess I'm hard to please then... :/

  • I can see you're using the 50mm f/1.8 more than the 35mm f/1.8, Dave. Do you think it's better suited as a first prime lens?
  • Replied in Thank you!
    Great app! I don't have an Android phone yet, but I have to congratulate you on your effort! If only Symbian wasn't as dead and somebody made a port, maybe I could use it with my N8. It supports...
  • I like the video a lot! Also, no rolling shutter artifacts, which is ideal when shooting propellers! :)

    I like the less saturated colors. Has a more film-like look :)
  • Thanks! :)Great pictures lunabug! :D
  • After careful thought, I think I'll go with the Sony A58, too. My other options are the Nikon D3200/5100, Canon 600D and Pentax K-500. None of them is as complete as the A58. And neither comes...
  • Replied in lens choice
    If you don't need any lens, better spend those $$ elsewhere. Try helping a newbie get his first DSLR or even donate to an animal shelter. Don't create demand out of nowhere. You're causing the...
  • I wasn't so lucky with my gift... The lens won't focus to infinity at focal lengths shorter than 70mm. It can only focus to 6 feet at 28mm. No crisp landscape photos for me :/I don't know if it's...
  • Created discussions I just got a Nikon F55 (N55)
    Hi!Somebody just gave me a Nikon F55 (N55 in the US) as a gift. I'm so excited! :DThere's an AF Nikkor 28-80mm 1:3.5-5.6D on it, too.It wasn't easy to find CR2 batteries and films on a Saturday...
  • Thank you all. I'm considering the Pentax K-50 as my first DSLR ever, among the entry level ones from Canon, Nikon and Sony. It looks bombproof.Should I get the body only (with what aftermarket...
  • Hello!I've just discovered the Pentax DSLRs and I like very much the idea of a proper pentaprism viewfinder and the weather/dust/freeze resistant design.Can you tell me what is the equivalent lens...
  • So far, I got lots of good (and some conflicting) advice here. Thank you very much. I know there isn't a single right answer to my dilemma and that many things are subjective in photography. But it...

  • You guys are right. I'll just forget the telephoto zoom lens for the moment. I have to learn a lot on a kit or normal prime lens first. Or I could get a superzoom if I want to play around. But I...
  • I got this all wrong, didn't I? :/I'm sorry, I just don't know where to start. I'd appreciate it if you shared your UK online sources in public or in private.
