  • I saw your blog after I had written that reply. I hadn't even thought about the stereo reversal in the back half of the image. I've been editing a lot of Theta photos to remove the image of the ...
  • Wouldn't this be better with 3 or 4 shots in a triangle or square? As you rotate around, at some point your direction of view will be parallel to the axis of the original 2 photos. You would have ...
  • That looks like a dirty lens. It's worse than any of my indoor Theta shots, although it looks like the lighting condition is worse. It doesn't show up so strongly in the other photos available in ...
  • Whatever you have used to resize that photo has stripped the EXIF data. We can't judge the camera settings when we don't get the camera settings on the image. Just post the full size image and let ...
  • Replied in Medium Format.
    Well, if it's for a business, then you have to look at the return on investment. If you have a honking great 645Z sitting on your shelf (tastefully arranged with some non-functional antique wooden ...
  • Those are very tough conditions for one tripod. My stills tripod is backpackable but it's a little undersized for my Bigma. My video tripod is pretty much the bottom end of fluid heads and it's ...
  • Okay there - are you setting the zoom on the flash? If you are then it probably means that the flash is NOT communicating with the camera. I have found with my Metz that it won't let me set the ...
  • I haven't tried the test but I have noticed that the small slice of the Theta that is visible in most shots is not always the same. I think it is dynamically re-stitching every photo. It may ...
  • Nice! I love the cranes adding interest to she sky portion of the shot.
  • I had an idea for an underwater housing for the Theta: a ziplock bag. You can get bags (not ziplock brand) that are relatively clear. Suck as much air out of the bag as possible to get it to wrap ...
  • The best way to get your fingers out of the shot is to give it to someone else to hold. If you have the app on your phone/ipad then you can trigger it remotely and often they don't even realise ...
  • The lack of self-timer is very odd. However the device has very few buttons and no feedback apart from the shutter sound and a few LEDs, so it would be difficult to control this feature. Perhaps a ...
  • Replied in Monopod
    Yes, the screenshot-from-the-viewer method seems to be the best way of flattening images for display. Of course if you're on an iPad or iPhone then your screenshot is stuck in the i-device's album ...
  • That's like asking for a recommendation for a lens without saying if you want to photograph landscapes or macros. Unless you tell us what you want to record then the suggestions are likely to be ...
  • If the cards have ever shown any kind of glitch, I don't care if they work later with different firmware or reformatting. They are suspect and should never be used for taking photos again. I've ...
  • My guess was that they were testing indoors at a shutter speed around 1/8th. That will slow down your frame rate in a way that's related to the ISO. I've done similar stupid things myself.
  • That is a stupendously good photograph. It's not an exceptional moment like a sunset or unique landscape but it's firmly in the middle of "good". The background is not clean but it has just enough ...
  • As far as I can tell the on-off switch uses the same mechanism as most other camera manufacturers. It's as if there's one factory in Japan that makes all the switches, the same way Bosch ...
  • That looks like a competent auto-thyristor flash. To use it in Auto mode, you will have to make sure that your camera's ISO is fixed and not automatic. For me, I would probably end up using it in ...
  • Well, just do it in-camera with the Pentax multi-exposure function.  (Although it's more difficult to control versus stacking in post.) I have the older 10-20mm and it is the lens I have used to ...
