  • Hmmm.  Maybe they use blinds (which are open, so you can't see them) and don't block he winders with bookcases?  From the angle in your photo, low furniture (tables , chairs etc) might not be ...
  • Yes it's way more than you need, but don't worry about it.  If you have a 24MP image that you want to print at 4 x 6, go right ahead, it will look fine.  No need to adjust the file before your ...
  • I'm not clear what the problem is - I think you've explained the situation yourself.  The apartment block is empty with clean windows and you can see right through it.  There is a low red brick ...
  • Ask your question on the 'retouching' forum, you might get more luck. But a £50 scanner and a copy of photoshop elements will allow you improve faded old photos a lot. Best wishes
  • That statement is startling. It is a completely selfish 'photo-centric' viewpoint - which is unfortunately very common - that anyone with a camera becomes entitled to behave like an obnoxious ass ...
  • … this tactic might trigger the response 'Are you implying that I'm old and fat?' - which would delay any K3 purchase for several months at least. Best wishes
  • So… because you cannot actually do what you said was easy - and what knickerhawk asked you to show (i.e. show that an OOC camera jpeg can be adjusted to show the same dynamic range as an image ...
  • But they DID get into people's way in the example you quoted: that's the whole point.  Ill mannered oafs with cameras spoiled the place for other visitors... 'People now swarm the paintings, step ...
  • Replied in K3 Envy
    I've tried that... and it didn't work.
  • ... so anything I want to do, anywhere, in Greece is permissible - and nobody can stop me from doing it - if I claim that this activity is part of 'developing my personality'? I'm getting on the ...
  • Sounds like a great selling point that advertisers should take note of: 'The Canikon XXXd is the best instrument for wallowing in other people's misery in bad light'.  Coming soon to a hoarding ...
  • Replied in well said (n/t)
  • ... and possibly 'nine' was on the generous side. Best wishes
  • Replied in how old are you?
    Are you a real human adult?  I ask because you are behaving like someone with an actual (or mental) age of about nine.
  • How do you know?  Have you asked them all? Well, if the total ambition of your photographic hobby is to post selfies 500 pixels high on Facebook then I'm not surprised you don't understand why some ...
  • I used to try and do this and found that what was 'to my taste' depended on the subject and the lighting conditions.  The idea that one set of parameters will suit all occasions simply didn't ...
  • Review of the 17-70: http://www.lenstip.com/366.1-Lens_review-Sigma_C_17-70_mm_f_2.8-4.0_DC_Macro_OS_HSM.html - the review is rather equivocal and points out some ways in which the new version of ...
  • Replied in Nate...
    ... you should carry that combo with you more often.  That is a wonderful set of images. Best wishes
  • Replied in k-01 or k-r?
    Not the K-r.  As others have said the later generation sensor in the K-01 / K30  / K50 generation is significantly better.  Also the K-r had (if I recall correctly) AF issues in tungsten light. Whe ...
  • .. and +2 for the RX100.  If you want light / convenient for travel you don't want be lugging extra lenses, in which case buying an interchangeable lens camera seems a bit pointless. Best wishes
