  • Your troubles with white balance are interesting. Did you have a color temp meter with you to see what the actual color temp of the sky was when you were shooting?

    As the lore and legend has it,...

  • The only snag is that there's no universally accepted or regulated definition of CRI. So until an independent lab or site starts testing these lights with calibrated lab equipment, we have to take...

  • Well get on it brother. And hook up with someone who owns a spectrophotometer so we can see what kind of color spikes we're really dealing with. This could be just the eye light we're all looking for.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Review preview

    I would take the opposite view and say that their reviews aren't subjective enough. At its most fundamental level the camera is nothing more than a light tight box that we use to capture and keep...

    The problem with higher MP cameras is not that they require more storage, but that they steal time from the photographer because computers have finite processing speed.

    If I have to process 1,000...

  • Wow, the Three-Way Color Corrector comes to still photos. I just started using it in Resolve and Premiere and it's quite different from the way Photoshop and the rest do color correction...It's...

  • Wow. That sounds like an awesome challenge. The birds in flight photographers are going to be very interested in that lens. If you hustle you still have time to test it out on the birds at Bosque...

  • 16-85 is said to be a good choice, but try it out. Take a memory card to the store and shoot a bunch of pictures with the two lenses and then take them home and look at them on your computer and...

  • If you're really into available light, then you won't like any of the kit lenses unless you plan on stabilizing the camera by holding it up against doorways and walls or carrying a tripod because...

  • If you're really into available light, then you won't like any of the kit lenses because they're all pretty slow and will force you to use slow shutter speeds (unless you're good at stabilizing...

  • Lenses like the 300 and 600 would have to be shot off of a high-level tripod like an RRS with a Wimberly gimbal mount, don't you think? Otherwise how could you get anything like a sharp picture? ...

  • As far as testing lenses like the upcoming 300mm, I think it would do better because a lens like that has to be shot off of a high-level tripod like an RRS with a Wimberly gimbal mount, or at the...

  • As far as testing lenses like the upcoming 300mm, I think it would do have higher accuracy rate because a lens like that has to be shot off of a high-level tripod like an RRS with a Wimberly gimbal...

  • As far as testing lenses like the upcoming 300mm, I think it would have higher rate of keepers because a lens like that has to be shot off of a high-level tripod with a Wimberly gimbal mount, or...

  • I'm confused. Was this video shot on an EM5?

  • If you want to know what lenses like this are for, go see a few graphic-novel based movies.
    "Kingsmen" is one that's out now that shows off how to use extreme wide angles. The trend in framing...

  • This is why I love this site: People argue about the periodic table!!! Keep going fellas, this is helping me remember my high school chemistry.

  • Kicked out?!!! Remind Dan that he's not in New York anymore and that people are much more reasonable in the rest of the country—if he wants to shoot in a location he should call ahead for approval,...

  • To use an UWA like this you have to get as close to the main subject as you can...and then move closer. The specs say the min focus distance is 11 inches...So that's where your first shot should be...

  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Sensors matter little these days. It's all about the lenses. It is which lens you choose and how you use it that makes the difference between a run-of-the-mill record shot and a life-changing piece...
