  • Consider going up to an observation deck area of the Foshay Building.  When built it was the tallest building west if the Mississippi.  It's now somewhat dwarfed by some taller buildings around ...
  • The widest angle lens I currently have is a 18mm used on a 1.6 crop sensored camera.  Will this be sufficient for the majority of non-telephoto shots in those parks?  Or will I be gravely ...
  • Replied in EFM 55-200
    Howard, You've pretty much sold me on this lens based on your sample shots posted here.  Thanks for taking the time to do so. Bob
  • Created discussions Canon 10-18mm lens anyone?
    Have you used it with your "M" yet?  What do you think about it?  I was looking for an inexpensive UWA lens for use with both my T2i and EOS-M, and this "sounds" like the lens to fill the bill. ...
  • Replied in Good job!
    All good suggestions thus far.  Thanks, all, for helping out. Bob
  • Considering a wide angle lens.  Currently, my widest is 18mm, via both the 18-55mm STM lenses for my T2i and EOS-M(I have one for each).  While there are some mighty fine WA lenses (actually Ultra ...
  • Thank you, folks.  I'm encouraged.  Today's the day, so we'll see how it goes.  The one saving grace here is that this is my grandson I'm shooting.  And if today would end up a disaster, we will ...
  • Created discussions Question about fill-flash.
    I have a T2i and 420EX flash.  I'm about to take some senior pictures of my grandson during a very hot day, but with the forecast of clouds.  Is using fill-flash a good idea (even on sunny ...
  • I have the adapter and a 40 2.8 lens.  So I may try that combo.  Did you use any sort of fill-flash?  If so, with what flash and with what settings?  I also have that smallish "M" shoe-mounted flash. ...
  • I have been using my Canon DSLR for taking senior pictures of my grandkids over the past couple years.  They may not be professional quality, but they seem to be good enough for yearbooks, ...
  • I expected this reaction, and that's just fine.  I was sort of hoping that you felt more strongly about the 22mm prime; as I have not used this lens since I got my EOS-M.  No subjects have called ...
  • Created discussions Best WA kit lens?
    I'm wondering if either of these lenses out does the other in any significant ways?  It's between the 18-55 STM and the 22 f2, and it's as a WA landscape/scenic lens.  I know all about options of ...
  • Replied in Canon's DPP?
    I downloaded Canon's DPP when I got my Canon T2i a couple years ago.  Will that download still repsect the RAW images taken with my much more recently acquired EOS-M camera?  Or need I download ...
  • Thanks.  I think I will  pass.
  • Bill, That's comforting to know.  One would easily get the impression around here and other sites that RAW is the only way to go.  And that if you don't shoot in RAW, you're not all that serious ...
  • Tony, So what you're telling me is whether I post process in RAW or JPEG, Picasa  3 gives me exactly the same screens of PP options for both?  I'm thinking so; as I saw nothing different from when ...
  • Created discussions Pros/cons of G10 today?
    What might be the pros and cons of the G10 in today's market.  When this camera first came onto the scene, it was considered quite good/capable.  Is it still considered good as compared to other ...
  • Hello Tony, So I went a took a handful of shots with my XZ-1 camera in RAW (only).  Then I went into Picasa's Raw conversion, and processed them.  But it seems to me that they processed much like ...
  • Tony, Is Picasa 3 different from Picasa 3.9?  In 3 I see no reference to RAW at all.  So are you telling me that if I'm to bring up my images shot in RAW, Picasa 3 will auotmatically deal with them ...
  • Created discussions ? about Picasa 3
    Is there any sort of RAW converter in the Picasa 3 software?  If so, where might I find it. Thanks
