  • I don't see how using the 50mm f/1.8 lens is going to eliminate the shadow.  The shadow is caused because you have a light source that is creating it.  Look at your subject - if there is a shadow, ...
  • Seriously!  You bump your own post after only 4 hours!  It is working time here in the USA and many of us don't have time to answer posts.  Be patient - people will reply when they have time. With ...
  • I can't tell you what you should buy. But after doing my research, these are the lenses that I have on my 60D. The 18-135mm "kit" lens is my everyday, walk-around lens and is probably in the camera ...
  • Replied in Forever.....
    +1 Tedolf has given the perfect answer. My only addition is that unless properly stored, CD-ROM or DVD disks will only last about 10 years.  If you really want to keep forever, I would recommend ...
  • You are looking for slightly different requirements here. I am assuming you will be indoors for the wrestling and dependent on the lighting in the gym.  Even if you are allowed to use a flash, ...
  • Using the camera search feature here in DPR, I see four cameras that meet your requirements: http://www.dpreview.com/products/search/cameras#criterias=SpecsCoreParams%2CSpecsWireless%2CSpecsGPS%2CS ...
  • I have no experience with the Nikon so cannot comment on that camera. My Canon 60D gives great images when viewed on my big screen HDTV. My wife's nephew installed Magic Lantern on his 60D and with ...
  • It seems to me that while you acknowledge that the Canon T2 gives you better images, you do not use it as much because it is too big.  Buying the 70D or another big(ish) dSLR is not going to solve ...
  • Thank you all.  Great suggestions.  I have shared them with my sister and obviously she will make final decision.
  • Thank you!  Great answer, though not the one my sister wanted to hear. This is a follow-up question to everyone. What options does she have other than this version of PhotoShop. (1) I assume she could ...
  • My sister is a photo-journalist who often goes to places where the internet connection is non-existent. Her old laptop finally died and she has bought a new Windows 8.1 laptop. The question here is ...
  • This question is difficult to answer in a forum.  I would do the following: (1) Take it to your local camera shop and ask them to look at it.  If they can repair, get an estimate.
  • The 60D is an awesome camera.  Learn to use it and you will not regret it. Part of the reason SLRs look big is because of the lens.  I use a 50 mm f/1.8 lens occasionally and the camera looks ...
  • Replied in Photo Editing
    I believe that post-processing of photos is useful and not a waste of time or money. Having said that, I tend to do very minimal PP - cropping, straightening and maybe some highlight control. ...
  • I work for a company that stores "Cloud" based data for our customers.  We use an extremely high encryption for security - far higher than iCloud or any commercial enterprise.  The advantage of ...
  • Replied in hasselblad hv
    Your best bet may be to find your nearest Hasselblad dealer and looking at an actual camera. The lighting can affect how the image looks and change the color from grey to silver.
  • Would you be prepared to do some teaching using YouTube? I find that Adorama has some really good tutorials, but you may have to select specific ones for her. When my wife was learning to use a ...
  • Replied in jpg or raw
    If you are used to shooting RAW, then there is no reason to stop. I've always shot in RAW + JPG.  However, as camera technology and sensors have gotten better, I find that I very seldom use the RAW ...
  • If you have a Wi-Fi router that has USB ports, they you could plug your external Hard Drive into that.  This drive will be available as a "network drive" to all your computers in your network.
  • Many waterproof cameras will work as regular everyday cameras. Start here on this site: http://www.dpreview.com/products/search/cameras?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=mainmenu&utm_medium=tex ...
