  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
