  • Hey folks,This is why I asked the question . I suppose I should have stated such up front. I'm not much of a photographer but I like to capture  images that other's may enjoy seeing. I feel if the ...
  • Thanks all, I do it both ways and don't see much difference IMO but it may be the Camera that dictates differences. I'm using a SX50 and it doesn't seem to care, dick
  • ,,,,,,,,,,or does it matter which one is first? dick
  • Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon
  • Thanks and yes you are correct about the CHKD, smile. I am in the midst of changing over to a Linux OS and may give it another whril when things settle in. dick
  • Created discussions Need some Tip's, SX50
    I am trying to capture some Tac Sharp images of a Hummingbird at or near a backyard feeder. Those little critter's move about quickly and don't want to co operate in me gaining by quest. How about ...
  • Created discussions SX50 Digital ZOOM
    I cannot activate the Digital Zoom feature nor do I get the yellow and blue areas on the Zoom Bar. Now I used to be able to do so, so I've screwed something up or something failed,,,any tricks for ...
  • Created discussions Lightroom or Gimp
    I'm a not so serious photographer as most of you folks here are but I like to dabble with it. I'm 78 years old and would like the easy way to an end if you know what I mean,not much patience. I ...
  • Thanks ,without checking that's probably the answer. Now I need to decide if I want RAW or 1.5x,smile. dick
  • Created discussions SX50 Digital Tele-Converter
    I cannot get an option to activate the "Digital Zoom" where the 1.5x and 2.0x is hiding. I did so in the past but can't get it now ,,,,,,,,,,,HELP!!!!!!! dick
  • Without reading any of the other comments and using my small monitor(19" diagonal) to view images with, I like the color of the bird in all SX50 images hands down. I'll now go see what others had ...
  • Evan great shots as always,,,got a question,what is the walkway in pic#2? That sure would make a good hiway for me to scoot along on tho I'm not on wheels. smile dick
  • Created discussions SX60 and Baseball
    The baseball post season started last night so I can't be bothered with camera's for about a month, smile. I'd quickly like to say from the many comments and images I have read and viewed thus far ...
  • I have never used DPP,only used Elements 12 and LR5,would it be worth my time to use DPP? dick
  • Hey guys don't get me wrong  and as stated above someone will find fault (that's me and my opinion) but if I am going to compare "apples to apples",,,,,,,,,I would select Aperture Mode, set all ...
  • I made the mistake of thinking you were comparing 3 cameras with all things equal. It has no real value to me under these/the conditions that were used. dick
  • IMO Sony by a nose and SX60 bringing up the rear assuming these are all SOOC. dick
  • Thanks Evan,I only saw one this morning for one feeding. The weather was overcast so pics didn't make the cut. I wish another species came thru this area but it seems the Ruby Throated are it. dick
  • Thanks all,hoping for early morning sun. The approach I take to get these shots is to block all flower openings on the feeder except one,camera on a monopod with monopod resting vertically against ...
  • Thanks for the memories with a wonderful photo. You know people just don't realize how big,"Big Mac" really is. One sunny afternoon in September 1955, about a foot of snow beneath my feet I looked ...
