  • Created discussions A6000 RAW files
    Are the RAW files of A6000 14bit uncompressed?
  • I read all the replies and I'm surprised that so many actually think prints are to continue. Maybe none of you have a Kindle or any other E-reader based on E-Ink... There already is digital paper ...
  • Created discussions The future of prints
    The future is paperless, that is for sure. So, why are we still shooting for print, and by that I mean obsess with megapixels? Most monitors and TVs of today are 1080p, which means any 2 megapixel ...
  • Created discussions Bored with photography?
    Anyone here willing to admit that they're bored with photography?
  • Created discussions The thrill of photography
    What thrills you about photography today? What gets you excited and motivated? What drives your photography passion?
  • Created discussions Still Photography Malaise
    Admit it or not, but still photography is in deep malaise with no sign of hope. Digital sensors are still the same as they were 10 years ago. They might shoot high ISO and have higher resolution ...
  • the reason you're shooting film is because you're a frustrated writer trying to express yourself using photography -- and its not working so you have to come up with all these reasons which ...
  • in pure descriptive sense still photos simply cannot compete with video. a photography series of images from some exotic location cannot even remotely compete with video footage of the same place ...
  • Sigma SD-1 is a good candidate but is it as good as Nikon D800E or Sony A7R at ISO 100?
  • Created discussions If you're shooting ISO100 only
    If you're shooting at ISO100 only, what is the best digital camera to buy? Basically which digital camera has the best image quality at ISO100. This is a tricky question but its really worthwhile ...
  • Created discussions Nikon D40 "better" than V1
    i have been playing with some D40 RAW files from many years ago and they have better detail (with kit lens), better color, low noise even at ISO 400 and of course better dynamic range compared to ...
  • Created discussions A devious plan
    most entry level DSLR, especially Nikon use the same sensor as a higher model but the RAW files are lossy  compressed in order to keep the lower product from killing the higher one. this RAW ...
  • when I say exposed correctly i mean without any blown highlights or shadows. but this is interesting because there is no doubt in my mind that i get better detail and tonality with really ...
  • i have noticed that i'm able to pull more detail and get better highlight detail from V1 RAW files if i underexpose by at least by two stops and then bring up the shadows in camera RAW. if i ...
  • Created discussions question about b&w wet prints
    in RGB 0,0,0 is the value for black, but if printing in cmyk RGB 15,15,15 is the black point. what about wet prints? complete black in the paper will look like a black block, so what is the RGB ...
  • DXO does what it does, but I'm more concerned about is people using that chart as some sort of factual and relevent to real world benchmark. The simply fact is that a Nikon D5300 does NOT have ...
  • Gotta love the uninformed trolls who spew their bs in every thread. Anyone with basic knowledge of digital photography at least should know this much that a RAW file is, well, raw data! a raw file ...
  • The DXO sensor chart is based on jpg files? That is just silly, personally I don't know of any serious photographer who shoots jpg or buys a camera based on jpg quality. So, if the DXO sensor ...
  • They share the same sensor but the RAW files in D5300 are lossy compressed. This is enough of a reason for me to not buy any cheap Nikon camera where the RAW files are compressed. In fact Canon is ...
  • Created discussions Diado Moriyama
    I was looking at Diado Moriyama's book, The World Through My Eyes and I was a little surprised to feel that the images looked pretentious and overcooked. Before this I had only seen photos by ...
