  • I have several primes and they get used occasionally, but my primary lenses are zooms. They're more flexible when I'm shooting things that vary a lot. The prime that gets the most use is my Nikkor ...
  • That's one reason I shoot raw. As a photographer of limited talent I need that safety net. And as I mentioned before, I frequently don't have the time to adjust the settings required to get it ...
  • This sounds like a disagreement about semantics. The sensor generates raw data. The camera takes that data and produces a jpg, which is embedded in the raw file that the camera stores. I would say ...
  • Ah. I see your point now. It's not a higher frame rate, but a higher frame count before the buffer fills. Sorry, I misunderstood your original comment. I rarely shoot long bursts. Mostly in the 3-5 ...
  • I don't consider time in LR wasted. I find LR the best way to find an image after a couple years by using the catalog. If I shot mostly jpg, I probably wouldn't put all my images into the LR catalog. ...
  • I shoot raw only. I have two levels of organization. When I put the card in the reader, it brings up an old program "Downloader Pro", which shows me the thumbnails of all the images on the card. It ...
  • The only time I shoot jpg is when I'm taking an image of a white screen when looking for sensor dust. I don't see any need to go through any postprocessing on a temporary diagnostic image. Otherwis ...
  • I'd guess that everyone's needs are different here. Your camera settings and your style of photography will affect the exposure. Your best bet is to look at a bunch of your photos from different ...
  • Plug card into reader. That brings up Downloader Pro, which allows me to set the file name to something meaningful and also defines the folder that the image files will be downloaded to. Download ...
  • You have a system that works for you. If you're happy with it there's no reason to change. However, I think using LR is more flexible. In my experience it's possible to search and add keywords to ...
  • Not identical, but it could be a derivative work. I'm not a lawyer but I suspect your lawyer would be hard pressed to prove infringement. Depends on the country, also.
  • Only 100,000 digits? Pfft!! Computations have determined π to about 1.2x10^13 decimal places. In the interest of saving space and bandwidth I will not post them here. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/P ...
  • Right If you send an image from LR to PS, you have the option of sending the raw file (which then goes through ACR on the way to PS) or a tiff. If you send a tiff, PS will return a tiff. If you ...
  • Too bad April only has 30 days Also, I maintain that today should be written 2015/03/14
  • Just to clarify things, IrfanView does not open raw files. Raw files have an embedded jpg preview. That is what you see when you send a raw file to IrfanView. You're starting from a jpg, so you ...
  • Replied in LR 5
    No. You can highlight the two images and right click on one of them, choose "Send to Photoshop as Layers". That's what you can do in LR, and when you're done in PS, saving the image sends it back ...
  • Whatever camera you use, it should be as light as possible. Placing  a heavy weight at the end of a long pole makes it very difficult to keep it stable. It's hard enough to stabilize the end of ...
  • IIRC, the earlier video showed someone with a smartphone somewhere across the room that connected to the cicret and provided the data and phone connection.
  • If you edit a raw file with a conversion editor you have all the adjustments available to you including white balance and exposure. If you first convert the raw file to a tiff, you can still edit ...
  • All these interesting events (and I've probably experienced half of them myself) reinforce my desire for an improvement in the next version of cameras. Many, if not most, cameras have a two-button ...
