    Let's get this out of the way up front: RAID is not a backup. That said, RAID is really nice when you have dedicated hardware to run it.  Like a good dedicated controller or NAS box that just ...
  • I've already been down both the Canon and Nikon routes and have no plans to go back.  I had a Canon Rebel II years back in the pre-DSLR days and just never became very impressed with the EOS ...
  • You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack You may find yourself in another part of the world You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile You may find yourself in a beautiful ...
  • Replied in sure you can
    Because of the wide exposure latitude with C-41 process films you could change the ISO, or adjust the exposure compensation, plus or minus 2 stops and still get a good image without any changes to ...
  • I would look at these services has a place to dump the cards to temporarily.  For example, with Google Drive you can install their sync app on a PC at home.  While on the road you could upload ...
  • Agreed. The next time I take mine out I'll fix the low light issue by taking my little Canon S95 along.
  • That's one way to look at it. I look at it from the point of view of what kind of images do I get using the tools I have chosen, both in hardware and software, and the compromises therein. What ...
  • Well, for what it's worth, I've been comparing raw files from the FZ200 at ISO 800 and 1600 with raw files from my Sony A57 at ISO 3200 in Adobe Bridge CS6.  To my eye the noise levels from the ...
  • The best way to go about this is to decide what field of view you want to cover and finding a lens that covers it.  What are your reasons for deciding on a 50 or a 40?
  • I can also recommend the FZ200.  I got one for my wife as Christmas present and it's an awesome camera.  High ISO noise in the raw shots is quite good considering the size of the sensor.  The lens ...
  • Patience, padawan.  You just bought the camera and it will come with a 18-55 kit lens that is generally quite good.  My recommendation would be to just work with that for a while.  In time you ...
  • Created discussions The KM A2 turns 10 this year
    Go figure: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2004/02/12/konicaminoltadimagea2 I still have mine, and it's still a great camera.
  • I find cloud storage useful as a way to transfer files between computers, share files, or keep some files accessible to multiple devices, but generally not useful as a backup for any data sets ...
  • Considering what you already have, the biggest changes I can see would be lower noise at high ISO's and shallower DOF with the full frame.  That and an emptier bank account or higher debt after ...
  • IMO, Nikon's biggest obstacle to any real innovation is themselves.  It has been my observation that historically they have never wanted to release any cameras that might take sales away from ...
  • Just to clarify, what do you mean by "edit as I go"?  Does that mean you plan to adjust and manipulate your photos while on your trip, or do you just mean that you will be removing unwanted photos? ...
  • Replied in Nikon or Sony
    Something else to consider is lens availablility.  The Sony A mount is basically the same as the Minolta Maxxum AF mount, and all of the old Minolta AF lenses will work just fine on an A58.  ...
  • I second this option.  IMO, the biggest reasons to go with the 16-50 are that you want something wider than 17 or 18.  Another reason is for near silent focusing if you shoot a lot of video, but ...
  • Something out of Canon's ELPH line is most likely what you want.
  • It would be nice to see Sony build image stabilization into the E-mount bodies, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
