  • I don't think the obsession over sharpness is just gearheads being gearheads and revelling in technicalities. I think the reason for obsessing over sharpness is you can get a measurable metric to ...
  • I have a Rebel T5 and have been really pleasantly surprised with it. I expected that being "entry level" means I'd never take any pics that looked very professional, and I just expected there were ...
  • Welcome ^^ I have a zillion photos on my HDD too... many need processing, some should be shared, and a ton just need deleting. Sounds like you just love to shoot which is a good thing. Feel free to ...
  • I'm a bit lost on your point. Are you saying that people who buy the d810 are stupidly wasting money on an expensive toy, wasting its capability by shooting brightly lit subjects like birds in ...
  • Replied in smooth barrel
    I was gonna give you this lens for free, but I can see you would throw it in the trash because the barrel is so smooth, so I guess I won't bother :P I mostly care about image quality and price. The ...
  • Did you forget to include the picture? Share your great wall of china pic ^^
  • haha, what can I say, you guys are both right. I absolutely need to take fewer photos, and instead focus on having the photos be more interesting and high quality. I delete a lot more than I used ...
  • Hey, I'm happy if you have a workflow you enjoy. I just think there's no part of that workflow that requires shooting in JPEG. At all. If you switched to raw right now and then went out and did ...
  • All that post says though is try to get it as right as possible in camera... which is true whether shooting JPEG or RAW. Though if you are not doing 'journalist' type photos but something like a ...
  • I don't wanna sound cocky, just say I'm happy to make some pics like these while still pretty new to photography, with an entry level camera. It helps that I've been playing around in photoshop ...
  • your figure skater shot is killer! I like the processing, though not the grunge frame so much. Very nice shot.
  • This is the lens I have on at the moment :P Glad you were able to figure out it was the filter and didn't end up banning Sigma products from your life. They make fine lenses. For the record, the ...
  • Replied in Settings?
    No idea of your experience level, or how familiar you are with the camera. Forgive me if you already know all this. But what are your settings? I don't see any EXIF data on the image. Is this shot ...
  • They have those guidelines already at the top of every reply! "be polite and civil; do not be offensive, malicious or antagonistic" Well, ok, there's a little more to it than that. But really it ...
  • having just purchased a T5, I laughed and cried to see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=baHqjUrykTU I suspect Canon is not doing much in the entry-level market. And comments about their weaker ...
  • It's probably fair to say that more pixels to cover the same subject = more detail and therefore more sharpness, sort of. The quality of the lens definitely contributes to sharpness too. So a ...
  • Yup, I should. I save JPEGs of photos I don't care much about (let's call them the 3-stars) and raws of the photos I really like. If I had a few extra terabytes I'd just keep everything raw and ...
  • Wish people didn't give you so many snotty replies. I think it's just their own insecurity making them desperate to look like experts by putting down anyone who isn't. There's nothing wrong with ...
  • "Jumping right to raw" makes it sound like shooting in raw is some advanced techniques that amateurs should keep away from until they are 'ready'. Nothing could be further from the truth. Thats ...
  • I foolishly deleted the raw. Just a reflexive habit after exporting to JPEG. But, I figured out the problem anyway. Wasn't related to sharpening, though I appreciate everyone taking a stab at it. I ...
