  • I'm excited to have just set up a brand new Pro-100. It looks huge on the desk, although I expected that. I am eager to print some nice 13x19 in photos. My local camera store had a special when I ...
  • I can understand the concerns, but I am not so sure that digital is such a problem.  A lot of people say things like "will my current digital files be readable by computers in 20 years, or in 40 ...
  • My current biggest pet peeve is the 'digital revolution', but only in one regard:  I hate how almost EVERYONE has a digital camera with them (even if just in their phone), and how these cameras ...
  • Been wanting to buy a book on Photoshop, but held off because some new ones coming out with added content for Photoshop CC 2014 edition.  Have my eye on Martin Evening's new book "Adobe Photoshop ...
  • I've been looking online at the $89 deal at 5daydeal.com It's not just about retouching, but that is one of the main areas.  It includes a lot of instructional videos and ebooks, a large number of ...
  • In the meantime, the problem with the IS seems to only be intermittent. I have been using a Blackrapid strap that screws into the tripod mount.  Could that make the IS on the 17-55 go wonky?  I ...
  • The weird thing to me, is that the online Canon form never asked me to describe the problem - it only asked the specific part, serial #, purchase date, and from that came up with the quote.  I ...
  • Created discussions cost of repairs
    I have a Canon 17-55 f2.8 IS lens, that I love.  Recently, it started doing something weird: when the image stabilization is turned on, and I partially press the shutter, there is the usual buzz ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions Gerry :)
  • thank you to everyone who replied to my original post.  I didn't expect so many replies ! I do feel the discussion went on a tangent, away from my original question.  I wasn't so much asking what ...
  • I know there have been a lot of threads pointing out how people often forget that certain print sizes force you to crop your photo, if you shoot with the common 2:3 ratio sensor. My question is why ...
  • I've been looking at the U2413 as well, and comparing it to the less expensive Dell ultrasharp monitors.  For example, on the Dell Canada website, the u2413 costs about the same as the u2713HM, a ...
  • Thanks Erich, nice to hear from a fellow Canuck :) What you are saying is in keeping with where my thoughts have been.  I think I will get an external monitor, but something reasonably priced, and ...
  • Would this not be an issue if the 24inch monitor rotated to portrait orientation?  The Dell U2413 and Dell U2713HM both pivot this way.
  • Thanks for all the replies :) I take a few valuable pieces of advice from the replies: (1) Since I'm not a pro, a less expensive monitor (just covering sRGB) would be adequate, rather than having to ...
  • I've read a lot of forum discussions here and on other sites, and I've looked through lots of review sites. I am a hobbyist, using dSLR and now post-processing with Lightroom and Photoshop. I like ...
  • I know this can be done on dpreview. But I am curious what others are doing? Where do you find the best places to show your top photos and get critiques and suggestions? (and at the same time view ...
  • Have a question about the new macbook pro: I have a 4 year old 15 inch macbook pro, and would like to sell it and get a new one. the old one is running very slow, is missing the retina display, and ...
  • These replies are very helpful ! It raises an additional question:  Does anyone have experience running Lightroom or Photoshop on a Macbook pro, with an external monitor, in clamshell mode, vs an ...
  • James, I hadn't heard of Low-Res mode with Lightroom - since you are saying that is the mode I will be in if I use an external monitor, what does that mean exactly?  In Low-Res mode, when I look at ...
