  • No, they are not like a bi or trifocal.  They automatically and seamlessly correct for focus distance regardless of whether the eyes are looking up or down or straight ahead.  Pure magic.
  • My cataract surgery was performed in April of 2011.  Prior to the surgery I was nearsighted and wore tri-focal glasses.  I opted for Tecnis 1 Multifocal IOLs  made by Abbott Medical Optics.  My ...
  • Replied in No.
    Cheating?  I guess that depends on your criteria on what constitutes an "honest" photograph.  As far as "looks horrible", that depends on the skills of the person post processing the image.  My ...
  • Replied in Yes (nt)
  • Replied in Perhaps
    Certainly some fit your description, but some don't.  Recently I had the pleasure of mentoring, via internet (I'm based in Florida), a serviceman stationed in Hawaii on the Minolta SRT-101 that ...
  • People liked getting a new phone every two years when they thought they were free or could be had for $100 or so.  Now that they see the real cost of $600 or $700, many have rethought their need ...
  • Not all pros were forced.  Many pro's, myself included, saw the value that the CC model provided us and signed on well before CC became the only option.
  • Both the Wasabi and Sterlingtek batteries recommend here have internal circuitry that protects from overheating and shuts down charging when they are fully charged.  They also track percentage of ...
  • I use Wasabi batteries in my Canon 5D, 6D, 7D and my Panasonic LX100.  They are excellent.  I'm sure their batteries for the 7D MkII are just as reliable.
  • Likely because they have way too many bird on a stick photos.  They are perhaps focused on the flight path the egrets take to the trees.
  • Good luck with that.  The quality of the output would be an even more debatable criteria than ISO.
  • It doesn't apply to all of America, just the United States of America.

  • I shoot a great deal of subjects in motion; birds in flight, rodeos, swamp buggy races, car races, sports, and airshows.  For me, all three are indispensable.
  • Last time I looked, CS6 was still available from Adobe.  Even if that is no longer the case there is a wide range of Photoshop alternates.  Is it Adobe's fault the the alternative software is not ...
  • Like most that complain about the CC subscription, you fail to take the initial cost of CS and LR into account. You also assume that had Adobe not gone to the CC model, upgrade cost and ...
  • Indeed it is.  Elements is Adobe's product aimed at hobbyists and casual users.  Combined with the standalone version of Lightroom it makes a powerful package at a very reasonable price. Many ...
  • Replied in Just say "NO"
    Exactly.  I always wonder why those who predict that Adobe will raise the CC subscription price would assume that the standalone product and upgrade prices would remain constant.  A market force ...
  • My system is similar to yours.  Windows 10, 3 internal drives, 4 external in a RAID array, and another 2 external.  My main catalog is around 180,000 images.  I've never experienced the issue you ...
