  • f/2.8 zooms on 4/3 will have more depth of field than f/2.8 zooms on full frame. The full frame camera will be able to work in much less light than the 4/3 camera or, alternatively, be able to use ...
  • The last thing a beginner needs is an insecure tripod. The good news is that well-made tripods last forever. I bought a Gitzo in 1984 along with my Nikon FE2. It cost more than the FE2. But I still ...
  • Because you are 2 stops down on the f/stop. You therefore need either 4 times the exposure time or 4 times the ISO. If all the settings were the same (f/stop, shutter speed and ISO) the brightness ...
  • I haven't encountered an exhibition that showed unframed photos; unframed photos are usually in little boxes off to one side that people can rummage through and buy for $10. I mat and frame any of ...
  • The crop factor for micro 4/3 is 2. So whatever focal length you have on the 5D, cut it in half to match the field of view. And to match the DoF, you also divide the aperture by 2. So for those ...
  • According to the Canon site: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/speedlite_flash_lineup/speedlite_430ex_ii#Specifications The Speedlite 430EX II is compatible with "all Canon ...
  • I just got back from 3 days at Yosemite with 85 pictures; I guess we're both relatively parsimonious in our photography. Like you, I shoot RAW and inspect in Lightroom. I find this part of the ...
  • That's called a reversing ring. They're somewhat annoying in that you get a fixed magnification. It's hard to figure out what that's going to be.  With some lenses, you won't be able to focus at all. ...

    What's an apple drive? A Time Capsule?
  • You're getting a 15mm f/8 and a 14mm f/2.5? Those are both the same focal length, pretty much. Neither one is a zoom. What's the 15mm f/8 for? It's manual focus and doesn't have a diaphragm. How is ...
  • I haven't had any issues reading CD's from Windows on my Mac. There may be some possibility of incompatibility but I've never run into it.
  • Replied in That's not luck
    Looks like a 105mm f/2.5; that's a lens from the '70's worth keeping.
  • You may want to look at getting Adobe Lightroom. Aside from being an excellent RAW editor, Lightroom allows you to put keywords on all your pictures as you import them, making them easy to access. ...
  • Replied in Probably not
    Adobe only updates the current versions of its software to work with new cameras. Your version of Camera Raw predates the introduction of the X-E2 and therefore can't read its files. You can ...
  • Replied in Storing photos
    A lot of times, most of what's on your hard drive is garbage and can be deleted; there are programs that help with that. If the drive was too full to load Elements, it's probably too full to run ...
  • Those don't look like SOOC JPG's to me. But how long does it take to teach flies how to juggle?
  • From your post, you already have a 60mm Micro Nikkor. How does this lens work for you? If it's OK, then you're set. If it's not OK, what's wrong with it?
  • But the 20mm is a wide angle lens; even at its MFD, it will cover a lot of area. You may be better served by the 40mm Micro Nikkor. This gives good magnification at short distances.
  • Replied in Flash basics
    I've always been confused by Canon flash automation. I believe that whatever mode you were using exposed for the scene and used the flash as fill light. That's why I always use manual. With ...
  • Neither one. Low apertures give you shallow depth of field, which is generally not appropriate for the subjects you are considering. f/16 is not appropriate for DX because it produces unsharpness ...
