  • Quite simply, it would appear that Nikon no longer considers that there is any such thing as a "pro DX."
  • This would be correct to a point. You are making too quick of an assumption to get to "definitely" liable. While doing that research, you might also want to look up "assumption of the risk." I know ...
  • I have never been to San Diego; but, I have travelled with a photo backpack on a number of flights, on several airlines. I usually carry one body, three lenses, a tele-extender, a couple of extra ...
  • I have purchased from both, and have nothing but good thiings to say about my experiences with each. I purchased a refurbished Nikon D300 from Cameta, about 5 years ago.  It was repackaged by Nikon ...
  • Replied in A question
    That's an easy fix. For the file that Costco will be printing, set the "canvas" size to the size of the paper on which the photo will be printed; and, then, set the "image" size to the size that ...
  • Replied in A question
    John:  Are you talking about an even crop around all edges of the photo, or are you talking about a large crop from two sides, to make the image fit the aspect ratio of their paper size?
  • For a quick and dirty estimate of hyperfocal distance focusing you can try: 1.  Since dof will be twice as great beyond your focus point as it is in front, focus about 1/3 of the way into your ...
  • I had a similar experience with Feisol USA.  I bought a Feisol tripod straight from the manufacturer, before there was a US distributor.  A couple of years later, I lost a piece.  I contacted ...
  • Unless the bride and groom have asked that I take photos, I do not bring any camera to a wedding where I am a guest.
  • Created discussions Is lighting becoming extinct?
    I have seen many threads where members made disparaging remarks about seeing a wedding photographer with what they thought was an inferior camera.  I have never joined into one of those threads.  ...
  • ...the fear of having a photograph taken of your child.  I would never question the decision of a parent in how to protect their child, but the fear of having a child photogrpahed eludes me. I have ...
  • I have never felt comfortable taking photos of strangers without their permission, so, I have nnot had any of the confrontations that some have described.  I only once have been approached by a ...
  • Replied in sounds familiar
    I have a friend who has been a professional photographer for forty years.  He is a superb photographer.  Though he has a 4,000 square foot studio, filled with a plethora of lighting equipment, ...
  • That is basically identical to the definition of harassment that you will find in the criminal statutes of most of the United States. As I said in an earlier post, people in this thread are ...
  • Replied in Not quite true
    Actually, it sounds more like the laws in England are very similar to the laws in the US.  The general rule that, if you are standing in a public place, you can photograph anything that you see, ...
  • Richy, now you have really lost me.  I cannot figure out how my previous reply could give you any indication of what I might believe about either paparazzi or photos of celebrities.
  • You are confusing different legal issues related to photography.  Where a photographer is standing has nothing to do with the question of whether or not a release may be needed. Where a ...
  • That is probably not practical, as a potential customer would likely ask about the availablity of a date before any other information was exchanged.
  • Replied in Music analogy
    You  are applying an argument that follows the old adage of "comparing apples and oranges." Photographers can, in fact, "...do the very same thing."  A photographer can legally do exactly what John ...
  • Several years ago, I saw an interview of Ansel Adams where, when he was asked about the time that he spent on a print, he said that he would spend up to 3 days in the darkroom working on a photo.
