  • Replied in One-shot AF
    Shot over an hour of a horse show with the camera in one-shot AF. But using the lock-and-follow technique appropriate to ai-Servo. Leading to a ton of blurry pictures.But the icing on the cake was...
  • Just get a manual focus lens. Old school primes have WAY better focus scales than modern primes.  This is why I love my Leica 19/2.8 over my Canon 24/1.4—sometimes dialing in the distance is a WAY...
  • I'm running Magic Lantern, formatting trashes the software. Even before that I mostly didn't. Never had a problem. Maybe Windows does weird things to FAT filesystems that OSX doesn't?
  • photolando wrote: Let's get one thing straight. In the business world, and professional photography IS a business, no one "steals" a client or job. The other person LOSSES it for one reason or...
  • If you're a deep pockets TV show your lawyers/insurers make you take ridiculous precautions, blurring plates is one of them. They do it even for people they clearly have releases on. WTF? They do...
  • Replied in Not completely
    I've had an ancient Lexar (a 4GB I paid $300 for in 2004) and a newer no-name CF develop bad spots—the card mostly worked, but there'd be corruption on 1 shot in 100 or so. In the Lexar's defense,...
  • Replied in Two cameras
    One for cold, one for warm. Shooting a wedding with no backup is—however common—extraordinarily irresponsible. Reprehensible. Monumental dickheadery. If you can't afford the minimal requirements of...
  • Put a light source in the scene, nail your focus in live view, retrieve light source, shoot.ORPut Magic Lantern on your 5dIII. It can do focus bracketing. Give it a definitely-too-close focus to...
  • Created discussions Darktable -> Lightroom?
    I need something free I can have someone keyword and star on. So I can then import their keywords/stars (via XMP) into Lightroom for cropping/color/archiving/export. That is, I want to set them up...
  • It just gets in the way. Once many years ago I nearly lost my head when a stage diver managed to get an arm inside my strap on the way down. Pretty much gave them up after that. A few instances of...
  • Highlight Tone Priority does this in-camera—uses an ISO 1 stop slower than specified then does a digital boost. Marks the raws so Lightroom et al do the same thing.
  • I'm tired of having to punch in different micro-adjust for my 135 depending on whether I'm shooting 4-8 feet or 40-60 ft. And some lenses (notably the 50/1.2) need different adjustments at...
  • Replied in Digital Hexar
    Full frame, fast fixed lens, ACTIVE AUTOFOCUS compact. My 6d is big improvement in low-light AF; there's still a limit. But there's no such thing as too dark for the Hexar's IR active AF. Yeah,...
  • The part that fails is what I call the chopper transistor, someone else called it the blocking oscillator. It chops the DC into pulse that the transformer can step up to high voltage. It's at the...
  • Replied in Nothing
    Sure, I may get a little twisted up inside. But they were trying to pay a compliment. However backhanded it sounded that almost certainly wasn't the intent.Too many genuine jerks in the world to...
  • Replied in Moving Catalogs
    You need to move the lrdata file with the catalog file or all your previews will need to be regenerated.
  • I don't see the charm of 35mm film over digital. Too much "the same but not as good." Really nice medium- and large-format gear has gotten dirt cheap. Go for it.
  • We're too busy wanting to be photographers. Making purty pitchers is BY FAR the easiest part. What isn't easy, what never will be easy, is being a businessperson. Telling them why your product is...
  • Throwing them all into one folder only works if the cameras structure their filenames differently. Otherwise you eventually get name collisions.But even if merge-before-rename works for your...
  • Moving from within Lightroom works, but at least on a Mac is substantially slower for huge copies than letting the OS do the heavy lifting. And you have to notice the plus sign at the top right of...
