    I couldn't give a number. There are days when I dump the whole shoot. There are days when I keep half or more. And there are a lot of days when I don't bother to delete because storage is cheap and ...
  • Found it a most interesting read. One thing that occurred to me -- there are hundreds (maybe thousands) out there like him, just operating on a scale of hundreds or thousands of dollars instead of ...
  • I'm proud of my technique and try not to show technical mistakes, but on the whole I'd rather show an interesting picture with technical flaws than a technically perfect but boring photo. "There is ...
  • Don't worry about "normal." Normal, as you say, is often not very interesting. Find what is right for you. In my newspaper days one of the best photographers I knew did the majority of his work ...
  • Replied in Used camera ..
    I consider B&H about as close to a sure thing as you can get. I've been buying from them since long before the internet. Of course KEH and others have great reputations as well. The last couple of ...

    Why sneak? Just ask. "I'm loving this light, mind if I do a quick landscape?" In situation where I'm afraid to ask I'd be even more afraid of getting caught. Better yet, if possible wait until ...
  • At least that's my bet. I think a lot of people want to have pictures, but not many of them want to be "photographers" in the sense of carrying a big camera or learning to use it. At least in the ...
  • Sounds normal to me. Most people are not careful enough to notice, but typically lenses shift focus slightly as the diaphragm closes down. And the autofocus system may not be accurate at all ...
  • You can cut foam core with a very sharp utility knife. It takes some practice to develop a touch for it. Start with a fresh new blade and change it as needed I'm not sure of the best mounting ...
  • There is really very little difference between the two lenses. The half stop won't make any real difference in low light capabilities or depth of field - how often are you so much on the margin ...
  • It is an incremental improvement on last-century technology. Yes, I am interested in what 50MP can do in image quality. But this Canon is still a DSLR with the complexity of the moving mirror and ...
  • Difficult to answer. As the others have said, you could expect to see some slight loss at the image center around 5.6 or 8 with focal lengths common on m43. However, with some lenses the corners ...
  • Yes and no. Almost all the m43 lenses are very good and the best of them are truly fine. From what I have seen and read a higher resolution sensor can improve the output of even a fairly ordinary ...
  • I rarely crop more than minimally to clean up the edges of a photo or straighten a slight tilt - any crop represents a loss of technical quality. But there are times I want all the detail I can ...
  • To me, storage is cheaper than time. So I rarely bother to delete images, unless it is something like a folder of test shots or a totally failed artistic experiement. On the other hand, I try to be ...
  • That's an awfully general question. It would help us answer if you could give some idea of the kind of project - from what you say I'm guessing you mean more illustrational photos rather than ...
  • In the film days most of us had no backup at all for negatives and slides, and not much organized backup for prints. Over the years I twice lost huge chunks of my photo collection - once to a ...
  • For some of those people behind the lens 8 or 10 MP is plenty to express their vision, but for a lot of photographers more is better. Many photos do depend on fine detail and high resolution. Some ...
  • I have come to the view that most people just want pictures - they don't want to be photographers. I don't doubt that most photographers want decent size sensors (even if they disagree on just what ...
