  • 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 ...
  • Whenever I see someone think that way I like to link them to two popular photographers (both of whom solely use a 35mm lenses (one on a dslr, the other a Fujix100): Alain Laboille - Documenting his ...
  • Nice photos Peter, again. If you don't mind me saying: A forum is somewhere to enter discourse rather than solely self-promote - so I think it would be nice if you at least acknowledged having read ...
  • Replied in Waist when want
    You've had some great feedback already, my two cents will only be to reiterate on some of that... Limit yourself. I would never carry both the 85 & 100 together. And rarely more than 1 wideangle. ...
  • Replied in Welcome t chau
    Nice to see a new member giving such good advice on the beginner's forum.
  • Hi Geru - Please take note that my view, and the tip regarding calibration profiles, was aimed at OP to provide an alternative view, rather than with intent to inform you or challenge yours. The ...
  • Replied in In a word - No.
    To offer a contrary opinion to above... White balance is obviously something to be concerned about, but if you shoot RAW don't (necessarily*) worry about it until you get to the post-process stage. ...
  • Absolutely. There are a few posters (fortunately a minority) who like to talk the talk (and then some) with no evidence they can actually walk the walk. The self-proclaimed masters using big words ...
