  • You're suggesting that shooting is the first option you'd use. It's a stupid idea as it escalates a scene from you being held without being hurt to one where you, your robber and perhaps passerbys ...
  • You appear to have taken my remarks as a personal attack. No idea why and don;t care why.
  • No surprise to find the gun yielding maniac posts a lot in Off Topic. Why some people think it's worth killing someone for a camera I don't know.
  • F-numbers are usually rounded up from their precise theoretical values but the exact formula for ANY f-stop is : fn = power( 2.0, (stop number)/2 ) That's 2 raised to the power of the the stop ...
  • This is probably not possible even with an adapter. You would need an adapter that has a control to adjust aperture as the 18-55 lacks an aperture ring. I did not think there were any such ...
  • Let's look at some of these images : The Tree You are hoping to focus on a leaf. You got focus on the tree trunk right behind it. This is an expectation error. You are expecting the camera to pick ...
  • While the 75-300 is not considered a good lens, the question is what do you expect an upgrade to achieve ? What is it that your existing kit does not let you do that you want to do ? That does ...
  • You can get effects like cross polarization or even simply find you're missing reflections you'd expected ( remember that photographers may have a TTL viewfinder, but they don't alway notice the ...
  • It's best to do that with a neutral density filter. If you use a polarizer you're risking unwanted side effects.
  • Replied in Never do that
    A basic rule for ALL filters : take them off unless they are doing something useful. There is usually at least a potential optical downside to using any filter. Normally people go through a phase ...
  • You could have deleted his name completely from the quote. It's redundant anyway. I believe it's been suggested before to get the editor to remove the "... wrote" and the signature from quotes ...
  • Not sure about "dated". It's a good camera. But the question is what does it not do, or not do well enough, that you need to do ? Maybe. Would it be better than anything else or the GF2 for you is ...
  • The Samsung forum would give you better advice, however many MILCs need to have a specific menu setting changed to enable shooting with adapters, which send no electrical or electronic signals to ...
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shih_Tzu Good to know the filters work. And the OP needs to understand that filters can't determine what someone's intent is. All they can do is look at a word and ...
  • This is a important to recognize. It's all very well saying you're going to practice at events like this, but the problem is you have a wildly inflated idea of what you know. The other posters who ...
  • Wedding photography is something most very experienced pros don't even want to try. It's difficult, not just because of the photography. If you have to ask you're not capable of doing a wedding. Yo ...
  • Replied in They're spam
    They're spam posts and they typically have links in them to some product or website or other. You'd be surprised how many people will click a link in those kinds of posts and emails, even when they ...
  • You can try using these websites : http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test http://www.displaycalibration.com
  • Just to emphasize something, do NOT format an SD card in a computer. This could result in a card being formatted in a way that a camera or other devices cannot properly read. Use the camera to format.
