  • Darklamp, while I don't necessarily agree with you on a few issues, I think you are absolutely correct. I think that his attitude and actions are the cause of a lot of his issues. It also seems ...
  • So you are an "the end justifies the means" person. So what is your number?
  • It has been brought up before, how many times you have your picture taken. Some cities are worse than others. Part of the issue is one is overt. The other is covert. If people are aware that their ...
  • My question was going to be "was the gift option suggested by the seller? Or was it a mistake on your part?" If it was suggested by the seller, then you were probably scammed. If it was a mistake ...
  • I suspect you missed the sarcasm in the post. I believe the point he was trying to make is that although they might not know anything about cameras, they have knowledge and skills that you may not ...
  • You don't have to be insulting to tell the truth
  • Erudite- having or showing great knowledge or learning. Which implies to me knowledge or learning about more than just 1 subject, but I guess you could be just great at insults and not know ...
  • But not erudite enough to know it is rude to insult someone
  • You would have to have 2 processors and 2 buses to be able to do that. Would be cheaper to double or triple the buffer
  • Replied in No sticker?
    No fondling allowed, the lens is too sharp
  • The ideal lens for what? Probably not for landscapes or street photography. Probably not for birding either. Portraits maybe, but are you doing full body or just head and shoulders. What might be ...
  • I have never seriously considered an Otus, the cost is just too high for me. If I can get 90% of the performance for 30% of the price..... Renting one might be an interesting idea, although ...
  • Are you actually going to buy an Otus lens? Or just create threads about them. I personally would like to see your images taken with one of those lenses :-)
  • Replied in Yes, a little
    I would suggest checking out the astronomy forum. I have seen some fantastic images there and the people are very knowledgeable and willing to offer advice. I'm sure they can point you in the right ...

    I agree that "degrades" is not the best choice of term for the transmission idea, but loosely it still does work. I obviously can't speak for what David actually meant so I will leave it at that. H ...
  • Replied in Yes, a little
    I think you are confusing image quality with light transmission. The more lenses that the light has to travel through, the more light is lost, so while the image maybe sharper, the actual number of ...
  • Replied in Yes, a little
    I think , what you are referring to is T*stop, which is the transmission of the light through the lens. Usually the t*stop value is slightly less than the f stop value for good quality lenses and ...
  • You might not have been in public. Did you have to pay to gain entry? The organiser may have the right to restrict photography in the confines of the fairgrounds which may have included the area ...
  • To me, it sounds like she had been approached and asked not to shoot the contestants and that only people hired to do so were allowed. What what you have said, she was upset that she couldn't take ...
  • I think you have the option of cloud storage if you wish to use it, but that wasn't what I meant. By assets I meant you have lost the program. Your photos, like furniture, you can take with you, ...
