  • Bear in mind there is no such thing as a lightweight sturdy cheap tripod. Do you need lightweight? If not, go for a heavy metal tripod, eg a benbo. (The most flexible and sturdy tripod combo you ...
  • Gorgeous landscape photography - and such a refreshing change from the usual American (SW) scenes. I particularly like the compressed perspective shots. Can you tell me what lens you used? (so I ...
  • Therefore most of the things you question in your opening post are completely irrelevant eg white balance, sharpness settings. Learn a little more about what RAW is and why you are shooting it ...
  • But, alas, this is a public forum so ;) .... Never quite sure why anyone finds VR so necessary on a wide angle And the 16 - 18mm difference is negligable. So save yourself the debate and $260
  • Replied in Great lens
    I'm usually a prime user, but there's a place in my bag for this lens. It's sharp even wide open, and fast to focus. I also find the weight balances nicely (on my D700) Coming from DX, I recommend ...
  • Replied in Lenses for D90
    Hi, I've been here a while and easily confused To be clear - do you want x3 lenses that will replace your 18-55, or one for each field you list? Portrait - A 50 or 85mm f1.8 would do you well for ...
  • I think 150000 shots in 4 yrs is on the high amount for any amateur, let alone the fact you keep them all! You're averaging 100 shots a day. I'd only ever shoot that many when doing a travel or ...
  • Replied in No idea......
    on another thread I had stated that anyone who can argue that nothing is learnt from trial and error (which is pretty much the same thing as Scientfic Method) must lack the ability to apply reason ...
  • Using logic and analogy to prove someone a fool for telling a beginner that trial and error is not a good way to learn is actually bang on topic. Yet those of use who tried to do so have our posts ...
  • Reviewed evidence + applied reasoning = unquestionable logic So you can do it, Tedolf ;) :P
  • Yes Lowe-Pro (amongst others) also make smaller versions for smaller lenses. They have a belt loop on the back, fit them around your waist. Personally, I use ammo cases from army surplus stores to ...
  • Praise be to Wala!!! If I had my way I'd put your words (edited into bold) as a pop up to anyone posting here on the beginner's questions forum! ;) So many go the opposite way (ie never improving ...
  • Replied in WOOP! WOOP!
    First of all - don't believe everything you read (especially when it comes to opinions on lenses) as there is so much sample variation, especially in budget lines. Back to your previous thread, did ...
  • Isn't that the same excuse those morons use?
  • There's a fallacy here somewhere. Is it... (1) America is devoid of thieves (2) the third world is full of thieves (3) both of the above
  • They are both excellent cameras which are selling for bargain prices right now. You've had great responses. To summarise, and add one or 2 more points: (1) D90 - has video, D300 not
  • A little anecdote: I once got chatting to a photographer on assignment - asking them about what they were photographing, where they'd been, exchanging tips, etc. They told me I was one of very few ...
  • Replied in Who?
    I wouldn't know about that. I've never heard of Tony, and think Kelby is merely a very clever book salesman. I bought one of his books to judge if I could recommend it to students and found it ...
  • It's a camera, not a party frock. Worry what the photos look like, not the gear.
  • It's subjective, as they have a high tonal range. If they were mine I would say give them another + 1/3 to 1/2 stops They are both well taken. I particularly like the 2nd shot. But there is ...
