  • My Speedlites retain all their settings including HSS when i swap batteries.
  • Nonsense.  Plenty of good photos are made where the subject is back lit to some degree. For example here in Southwest Florida we do a lot of beach portraiture at sunset.  In many such situations a ...
  • My Canon 580EX II and 430EX II Speedlites remain in HSS even when turned off and back on.  With the Canon Speedlites set to HSS they will automatically drop in and out of HSS based on the shutter ...
  • nt
  • The ratio that perfectly compliments each picture.  That ratio is image dependent and can range from square to panoramic and portrait to landscape.  If you limit yourself to one aspect ratio your ...
  • It is how I earn a living.  Photography is my passion because every day there is a new challenge.  Even after well over half a century there is always something new to learn, a unique problem to ...
  • Perhaps if you had posted in the "Site Feedback" forum the appropriate people would see your post. The GoPro is a video camera.  I just double checked and I don't see a forum for Sony video ...
  • You want the state to provide you free of charge with an unspoiled scenic backdrop for your commercial photography.  You expect all the other citizens of the state to contribute to maintaining ...
  • Apple's definition is a bit self serving.  As far as I know Apple doesn't own a factory anywhere.  ALL Apple products are second party, so i can see where they would be reluctant to go with the ...
  • Metal lens hoods are no longer common.  Plastic hoods will absorb shock and then shatter.  A metal hood will likely damage the hood/lens attachment since that is the weakest link.
  • I'd say that Canon's introduction of the 7D MkII shows that they are serious. A prosumer grade body designed to capitalize on the advantages APS-C has in shooting action and wildlife. Stabilized ...
  • Since I can read your post I guess you are approved.
  • More like desperately thrashing around looking for a niche where they can compete successfully.  Resurrecting a bad idea from the past, the pellicle mirror, and stuffing a big sensor in a body to ...
  • All that would be true if Adobe CC was an SAAS.  Fortunately it is not.  CC only uses the internet to periodically verify your subscription status and push upgrades and bug fixes.  It will go ...
  • Well yes, in the 1.2 crop mode you have 24 megapixels.  But with the same true focal length and distance, compared to an APS-C camera, that target comprises a lot more background and a lot less ...
  • The Nikon D810 and Canon 7D MkII are built for different applications.  The D810 is aimed primarily at landscape and portrait photographers who need maximum detail and lack of noise at low ISOs.  ...
  • 24 hour live tech support, constant stream of product improvements, not just bug fixes, and access to cloud storage.  Sounds like a service to me.  A service that costs me considerably less than ...
  • A camera body has so many nooks and crevices that it would be nearly impossible to disinfect without total submersion.  The lens will be even more problematic.  Consider putting the camera and ...
  • That definitively answers the question you posed in a prior thread.  Street photography as practiced by you is not ethical.
  • I can talk and write without a camera.  Photography is just one of many means of expression. The public  believes that one can do almost anything in Photoshop.  Those that refuse to believe your ...
