About me:

Outdoor enthusiast: Enjoy Sailing,Fishing, Hunting, Hiking, Cross Country Skiing, Cycling,Snowmobiling etc. Enjoy both 35mm and Digital photography but it takes a big lever to pry the 35mm gear out now. Shot professionally some years back (location and studio) and am getting back into it now as an avocation.

  • Created discussions albums in Photoshop.
    Hi there, I prefer creating albums in PS rather than the many dedicated products. I just drag in the photos as smart objects then size and position them the way I want. Attributes such as borders ...
  • I have a D7100 and haven't experienced the auto focus issue people talk about . I shoot lots of fast action sports & hardly find any shots OOF. I had a D7000 which Nikon replaced for me with the...

  • I recently got this LG G3 and took a few images into LR.
    What I saw tells me I certainly don't need to haul my D7100 along now for casual shooting. Phones have come a long way for sure. Now i WANT...

  • Thanks for the response Rod.
  • Thanks for this info! My last adaptor experience was with a Konica to Nikon that I thought might allow me to use my Konica mount lenses on my Nikon D7100. As it turned out that hardly worked at all ...
  • Actually ...since I said it was so easy to correct the CA, I thought I'd better demo that so just downloaded Prime's Maui Photo and in LR did the CA adjustment which left a little CA and those ...
  • Hey Fujis ...I was just trolling for any posts regarding the old s100fs because I still have 2 of them and still enjoy shooting them. This thread's first post included a comment about the fringing ...
  • Created discussions Older Fuji lenses
    Any chance the old Hexanon lenses for cameras like the Autoreflex T3n will work on the new XT-1 ...or plans for an adaptor for them? They'd be manual of course. Just wondering.
  • Thanks guys! Yes ...I was expecting the crop frame to appear and I'd missed page 157 and was further along at page 167 which was just explaining the image area. Fairly quick to change with the "i" ...
  • Happy New Year gang! I programmed my Function button so that holding it and turning the main command dial switches between 1.3 crop mode and regular mode, so it is quick to change in use. I'm ...
  • Wow Sailor ...I hadn't expected a term paper on using strobes and diffusers but I'm loving it. I'll with through it with the flash and my light meter so I understand it. Thanks for this information! --
  • Thanks for replying. Got the light yesterday and turns out it has been upgraded. It is steplessly adjustable from full to 1/32 power. The unit is really nice and would probably peel paint at full ...
  • Created discussions Too much power?
    Hi, I have a new flash delivering tomorrow. It's a Mettle 600ws ac/dc. The extra power seemed a bargain and I thought it could be useful for outdoor group shots. The one thing I am concerned about ...
  • I needed one when I was nowhere near a camera store so I used a one of those sun reflectors you put inside your car windshield to keep your parked car cooler. Mine came from a 'dollar store' and ...
  • I had a really good salesman try to end my dickering once by saying "really ...you wouldn't feel good owning it if you paid any less"
    I think those who purchase these probably represent that...

  • to be consistent with the blad offering I think you should lay a piece of firewood on the dashboard for that 'connoisseur' look

  • Hi, Thanks ..I have guide guide and exchanged emails with GG's author over the course of several days and we couldn't get it to work with W8.1 and the latest PhotoshopCC 2014. Also the latest ...
  • Created discussions Columns in PS CC2014
    Hi there, I posted this on the Photoshop forum (Adobe's) almost two weeks ago and didn't get a response so thought I'd try here. I have 5 images on a wedding album page in 3 columns, 2 each of 2 ...
  • I have the current stabilized Sigma 50-150 and love it. Fast, clear, stable. On the D7100 I can switch in a heartbeat to the crop mode so it becomes a 100-300 in DX terms at 16mp, and for medium...

  • Just ...on the subject of flash triggers and syncing etc ... I have some 603 triggers and while they are nice I use them only when I need lots of flashes because they are dedicated to Nikon being ...
