My efforts to improve the photos I use in business has become an artistic interest, and I am joining this site to improve my skills.

  • Cameras could be much more fun with some of the improvements discussed.  They could also be more fun if they had programable open source operating systems, making things like Magic Lantern easier, ...
  • First of all, all of the most important things in life are subjective, the best woman, the most comfortable house, the prettiest picture, etc. Yes, but you contradict yourself above.  Every process ...
  • That makes sense.  Thanks, RKM.
  • My understanding is that smaller apertures make focusing more difficult because of the deeper depth of field.  Since focal length affects depth of field also, would it not focus effectively with a ...
  • Replied in Disclaimer
    Whether you're talking about cameras, real estate, stocks, or whatever, most people assume that the latest year over year change is the new long term trend. Markets are cyclical Mostpeople's ...
  • Phone cameras clearly affect low end compact camera sales, but in the case of DSLRs, there are two issues. Market saturation.  Everyone who wants one has one, like computers.  New sales will be ...
  • SOME photography needs to be faster.  Some does not.  Landscapes taken on a tripod can take as long as needed.  Only quality matters in that case, not speed.
  • You know what?  I'll never find the exact thread, but there are many to check out in the retouching forum.  Or pick someone whose pictures you like at high ISO and ask them.
  • That's what I get for trying to save words.  I was referring to "March of the Tripods" to whom I replied and agreeing with him.  A tripod would be very unwieldy for street photography.
  • I'm with Mr. Tripod. I use a 60D and the 55-250, and I live in a big city. The interesting looking people always seem to be across the street, or down the block. 55 is short enough for some pretty ...
  • That's my choice for a major upgrade.  Forget focus and recompose.  Just shoot a little wider then focus and crop.
  • I think your sensor is newer than the one on my 60D. I have seen, on these forums, better high ISO pictures than I take from older cameras. There are two things they have in common that I surmise ...
  • I can agree with that.  Given the choice of one or the other, I would take better high ISO performance. Still I am someone who wants it all and like the idea of lower ISO as well.  Benefits would ...
  • When I shot film, 1,000 ASA color film and 1600 ASA black and white were available.  They were very grainy and had low detail, though.  I used 400 for lower light with a flash and 100 for typical ...
  • Knowing what I know now, I would probably go with Canon again.  Nikon would be as good. At the time I bought my system, I would have gone with a mirror less system had one had an ultra wide zoom. ...
  • Replied in absurd indeed
    That Sony stabilized 50mm/1.8 is very cool.  IBIS is cool too, but I hear less effective with longer lenses. I've always thought shooting video was too much like work.  I should give it some time, ...
  • Replied in absurd indeed
    Sorry, I thought it was about the results of the reader's poll as it relates to Canon products. You can't see the sensor output until it is processed by the image processor into a RAW file, which ...
  • What the eye sees in the final image is the only thing that matters.  This is true whether you're selling your images, decorating your home or office with them, or selling a product depicted in ...
  • I think so.  There are lots of interesting people, performances, and wildlife that you can't always get close to.
  • When you travel heavy, with the 70D and lenses, you'll like having the SL1 as a second body.  That's the only thing that makes me hesitate on a large sensor compact.  A large sensor compact with ...
