  • Replied in one other note
    It occurred to me that this part might seem baffling: How do you do that? It's a setting in the export dialog of Lightroom, in the "Image Sizing" section. There, you can specify the total pixel ...
  • I'm guessing from your questions that your photo history goes back to the film days when service bureaus, labs, and graphic designers always referred to "resolution" in terms of pixels per inch ...
  • Replied in lovely
    The buzzard hunting shot is really exceptional. Beautiful complementary shapes and great color harmonies. I would be tempted to return to that location on a blue-sky day before the grass turns ...
  • Actually, it's a weak mechanism to discourage gray market importation into the U.S. The idea is that a) it will be easier for U.S. consumers to know the import status of a camera that is offered...

  • As you appear to already know, this can't really tell you anything -- a real-life scene can fool any kind of reflective meter in many different ways. And as others have pointed out, the Sunny 16 ...
  • Replied in hmmm
    Raw conversion is only about 1/3rd of what Lightroom does. It has a whole galaxy of features for organizing pictures and another whole galaxy of features for sharing them (printing, web galleries, ...
  • Not meaning to sound snarky here, but when I have questions like this, the first thing I do is go see what the maker of the thing says about it. Here is Adobe's "What is Lightroom?" page , which ...
  • Replied in not related
    Your response is irrelevant to Bill's comment. The current relative strength of the Euro/Dollar has no bearing whatsoever, none, on the question of whether Adobe Australia's cost of goods sold has ...
  • It doesn't actually matter where Adobe writes the software or where it is downloaded from. On this question, the only thing that matters is whether Adobe Australia pays Adobe U.S.A. for the ...
  • In the entire history of photography, there has never been a time when image quality was the most important factor in choosing a camera except for a tiny, tiny minority of photographers. And I ...
  • Replied in agreed
    Indeed, $3 won't be enough, even if it's the rational answer. Yep, that's it. Well, to each his own! :-)
  • So using the OP's case as an example, let's figure the fair discount, keeping in mind that, as you noted, the camera is identical to any other new X-Pro2 in all other key ways -- i.e. warranty, ...
  • Replied in and ...
    And not just factory workers. When I was the Nikon sales rep for northern California, I kept a small warehouse of Nikon products in the trunk of my car. I kept them because my dealers were always ...
  • I agree that it is strange, but a very large number of people feel that way. The central issue is the warranty. If you buy a product that is eligible for, and carries, a full new-product warranty ...
  • Commented on article Leica Q In-depth Review

    As a hopeless sucker for pictures of winsome pooches, I say well done, lads.

  • It's a fair point to consider, although I don't think it automatically tells you whether a source is credible or not, either way. I'll just mention that I've written camera reviews for a handful ...
  • Replied in variable
    Sure, if you get a good one. But the sample-to-sample variation on those bio-organic systems is severe .
  • Replied in agree
    Indeed. I've landed several well-paid projects that originated from unsolicited emails to me.
  • Replied in not the F2AS?
    Well, if you're talking purely quality of mechanical construction, I can't argue the merits of the Contarex's mechanical quality and precision, having never played with one. But if by "pinnacle" ...
  • I agree the ad agency was ridiculously sloppy here, but I think Nikon (the eyeglass division, in this case) probably bears a big chunk of the responsibility for this short cut. If Nikon had been ...
