  • The default scaling is 150%. Make it smaller and turn the Photoshop scaling back on, your UI won't have those errors.
  • Did you turn off Windows 8 scaling before you did this? They will multiply each other.
  • You don't hold it in your hand and get tired fingers. You cradle it in your forearm and use the pen. You won't get tired that way. Or just use it as a regular laptop. I'd only render on a laptop if ...
  • Don't use Road Rags outdoors, they're not remotely built for wind. I have the regular and mini set. A pole cracked my first time out in a light wind. I have Chimera, Profoto and RimeLite modifiers, ...
  • I'm getting the Surface Pro 3 when it comes out. Probably overkill for what you need.
  • Very useful charts, but unfortunately none of my prime lenses are listed. Hopefully they'll review the lens on a D800 and I'll have some slightly more helpful data.
  • I've read reviews raving about the Sigma wide open or close to it. For work, I mostly shoot products (everything from jewelry to coats) at f/11 with Nikon 60mm, 85mm PC-E and 105mm lenses on a D800. ...
  • I was expecting a poll with radio buttons. I'd do similarly, maybe not exactly the same.
  • Replied in Rules of thirds
    I would have done the same as you, turned it down. With new clients I practice the same as chk, 1/3 to even hold the date, 1/3 the first day of the shoot and final third upon delivery of images. ...
  • @Mssimo
    Let's see how it does on the D800/E. Never mind the 50+MP cameras.

  • When are you going to realize that? If I commercial client offered you $15,000 plus expenses to get on a plane and shoot in an exotic location for 3 days, would you take it? It's enough money to ...
  • They've been fine most of the time, in many various places, for me. But I've seen problems in 4 different studios or homes. (1) When placing it near a beam in ceiling it separated the one piece of ...
  • You should borrow an older Compact, Acute2 or Pro head and compare that to a D1 with and without the dome. The protruding bulb really helps fill a softbox or BD.
  • I think the small one was called a Sidewinder, again great design, I liked the 2 zipper entries. I used it a few times per year for day hikes, body and 2-3 lenses. The netting on the side lost its ...
  • They have great designs, but the materials don't hold up. I've had 3 of their bags, buckles break, handles fall apart and the extending handle on a rolling backpack stopped extending. My Dana ...
  • Replied in SEP IRA
    I'm pretty sure my tax rate will be lower in retirement than now, so why wouldn't I do a traditional IRA? I'm currently maxing out a Traditional IRA at $5,500 yearly. I figured the SEP IRA is my ...
  • Created discussions SEP IRA
    Anyone start one? I'm hoping to reduce taxes and add to retirement funds.
  • Replied in Run
    If they are purchasing the camera and lens, talk them into some macro primes. You should be able to get away with a 60mm and 105mm (maybe not if you're shooting a crop frame sensor). That zoom ...
  • The world is his market. He travels all over the US and has gone to Europe to shoot a wedding. You're thinking way too small. You don't need to worry about traveling somewhere to convince a bride ...
  • He's always talking about gels. Lots of good BTS videos. http://vimeo.com/rggphoto
