Certainly looks like bubbles, Dean. It looks as if the bright spots are reflections of the sun from the top and bottom of each bubble. They seem a bit too elongated for 1/50s although if very...
You didn't focus on his nose. You pointed the camera's auto focus point at the dogs nose and asked it to focus. It focused on the fence. Auto focus will focus on...
I would like peoples opinion on which they consider the best sensor type for viewing on a monitor or for printing, say from 6x8 to 12x16. Also if you are aimost never going to print...

If you decide on a UWA, Bob, here are a couple of things that might be of interest.
Vertical perspective can look odd (keystoning) with even a slight upward or downward angle of the camera. To...

Why do I keep getting dark images when I try to use Manual mode on my canon dslr ??

So on a boring afternoon, find a nice sharp stable target and take a series of pictures, at least 5 each, at 1/500, 1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4 seconds with the lens...
