Superka: NOT Supporting Windows XP, Windows XP 64. VERY NICE! I do have very powerful computer, but I HATE WINDOWS 7 for using 1GB of RAM, instead of 250MB as Windows XP 64. Neither of my 12 GB of RAM are unnecessary.
I feel that Adobe and Microsoft both force us to use this awful and stupid Windows 7. There are much more complicated software, supporting Windows XP 64.

Windows 7 works fine with little memory.
I've run enterprise grade engineering SW (and FF 3.6 at the same time) in a 384MB (!) Win7 VM without problems. At this point Win7 uses less memory than OS X 10.7 (my main OS)

On Article: How to shoot creative canine photographs article (36 comments in total)

Well the photos are quite good, and provide and interesting staring point, the associated text comes across as trite "A successful dog photo captures the natural beauty and personality of the dog." and doesn't really give any advice.

After a few sentences: "Now that you’ve mastered photographing your dog staying perfectly still and playing full-tilt, ". Right, with the only technical tip being Tv @ 1/1000.

I've found DPreviews Articles to be little more than about.com posts - (e.g. "Introduction to travel photography"). Have a look at the venerable Photo.net, which at least gives some deeper articles.

Too bad that the DMCA is a draconian legislation that is *not* for the benefit of the lonely photographer, but was dreamed up by Hollywood for protecting its interests.

PS C E Wright appears to be a fairly good photographer, to her credit.
