  • Nikon and Canon are popular with professionals because they have a very wide range of specialized lenses and accessories available for purchase or for rent; this is not something that would ...
  • Replied in That won't work
    AF lenses won't autofocus on the O.P.'s D3200. He would need the excellent but slightly costlier 60mm AF-S Micro Nikkor.
  • 24mm f/2.8 AI I only used it reversed on a bellows for high magnification. Now I use an MP-E65.
  • If somebody needed my pictures then I might feel some pressure about shooting them. Since nobody else cares what I do, I can enjoy photography.
  • I used to carry my Manfrotto 055CX but it was just too heavy to hike with. I got a Benro Travel Angel, which is nowhere near as rigid but certainly good enough if I'm careful. Something like that ...
  • I got the 35mm f/1.8 for my DX Nikon. It's a very sharp lens with good contrast. But so's my 16-85 zoom; it's just bigger and slower. Anyway, I hardly ever use the 35mm except when I want to ...
  • Replied in Motion blur
    It's pretty obvious that the 17-85 has pretty good VR and that you moved a lot when you used the 50.
  • That's Carmella and she is an excellent cat. I have more pictures of her in my gallery but I don't want to afflict the forum with more cat pictures than is absolutely necessary.
  • I completely agree with you; I would never use my camera to edit a RAW, for the reasons you outline. Even if I thought the camera manufacturer had the best processing of their own files, I would ...
  • I've always wanted the option to invert the image on my LCD; that makes the shapes more abstract to me and makes it easier to compose. This is the real reason so many great pictures were taken ...
  • Well, I was reading all the comments for a while and thought the discussion was about shooting RAW vs. shooting JPG. But then I watched the video and what you're doing is shooting RAW and then ...
  • I have a very limited selection of cat-under-car images. Here's one: The as-shot white balance was 5350K, tint 33. That didn't look bad. Daylight WB (5500K, tint 10) looked quite green. I set the ...
  • My image files get the same backup as all my other files: RAID NAS  + local backup drive + offsite backup drive I backup to the NAS every hour (Mac Time Machine) and alternate the local and offsite ...
  • There it is. The assumption is that you produce the same size print (or fill the same size monitor) regardless of the sensor size. So the image on a small sensor must be enlarged more than the ...
  • As elucidated by Joseph James, equivalence in the context of a single sensor size is meaningless; it only relates to the variables that must be changed to produce the same image on different ...
  • I learned how to use a camera in the late 1950's. Obviously, it was all manual all the time. And, after a while, I learned the hang of it. I used a light meter (Weston Master II) and gradually ...
  • Putting aside for a moment the question of why one would use manual mode in the situation you describe, you would generally pick a shutter speed that won't give you blur. This depends on the focal ...
  • There are various kinds of old Nikkors and it makes a difference which they are. The 24mm f/2.8 can be an AI lens or an AF lens. The AI lens won't meter on the lower-end Nikon bodies. The 50mm ...
  • Any given subject will be 4X bigger on the sensor at 1:1 than at 1:4.
  • The settings are not the cause of the problem; lateral CA isn't aperture-dependent. It's easily removed from the RAW file. If it was a Canon lens it probably wouldn't appear in a JPG either.
