  • Great example. Is that automated or do you have to move and click?
  • That design is like 20 years old. Nikon filed a patent on a 200mm f/3.2 micro lens like 5 years ago, so if it isn't vaporware, it's probably due soon(ish). I gave it a spin in the store, f/4 is ...
  • I've only used an automated turntable never an automated focusing rail. Check the reviews, if they're good and it saves you enough time to pay for itself, then go for it. I could see myself using ...
  • For small items a 105mm macro. For group shots, usually the 85mm PC-E tilt-shift macro. Bigger items, the 60mm macro. Depending on what the client needs, I sometimes spend lots of time doing focus ...
  • I shoot jewelry among other products like footwear and handbags. Some big clients are going with renderings since they are designing in 3D programs any way. Most of Ikea's catalog is done with ...
  • I had a similar issue with some equipment. I got something like this: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Crown-Bolt-5-16-in-x-4-in-Stainless-Steel-Screw-Hook-30274/204499460 There will be bins with 20 ...
  • Mine is the i5. It's a tough comparison, I guess it depends on how much you value the touchscreen. Add that to the cost of the Macbook. Doing a quick retouch to a headshot in front of the client is ...
  • I have the D800 and tether to the SP3 and do minor retouching with Photoshop CS5. CC has better scaling features. Photoshop is reasonably fast for my files, I usually only have 1-3 layers. I use ...
  • You are asking a laptop to do a lot for that price. I'd almost recommend a Surface Pro 3, but it will perform much worse than a desktop built for video editing at that price.
  • Is there something with better specs for the price? I can't find what version of DisplayPort it has. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/lg-31mu97-ips-4k-monitor,27988.html I need the nearly full ...
  • Replied in What size?
    What size are you printing or viewing? I have the 20mm D and the 35mm D. I recently tested the 20mm against the 14-24 at 20mm on a D800. I saw no difference in a 6" print. If I zoom in all the way ...
  • Works great for me, I only use it to retouch headshots using brushes and lassos. My product photography needs the detail work of a mouse and the pen tool, so I don't even use my Wacom Intuos 4 for ...
  • Replied in Wacom Tablets
    Scott Johnson, popular web comic artist, mentioned the latest patch had bugs. They're usually pretty stable. He reverted drivers to the last install and it worked fine. I have an Intuos 4 and like ...
  • Replied in Antec P280
    I like mine.
  • Much better. I didn't read all the posts, but they're still a little flat. I'd add some modeling aka shadow to the faces by moving the light to the side. You got decent expressions out of them, a ...
  • Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center has great views. Empire State Building observation deck as well. Both have entry fees and are crowded for sunset. Most buildings aren't going to let strangers ...
  • Active community for Surface Pro 3 here, try this: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/microsoft/63504-workaround-tiny-photoshop-ui-surface-pro-x-other-apps-other-hi-dpi-screen.html
  • 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 ...
