  • I only shoot jpg when I'm taking a shot to check for dust on the sensor. I don't see any point in going through the full postprocessing steps just to look for spots. Otherwise I shoot RAW.
  • When I got my first DSLR I shot jpg because it was what I was used to doing. Eventually I changed some settings (WB) and forgot to change it back, resulting in blue pictures. It was a real pain ...
  • Best thing to do is try it. See what you get for images. In general, a few scratches won't do much except decrease contrast and make it more sensitive to scattered light from the side. They ...
  • I have the 24-70 and the 70-200. They both get used a lot but the 24-70 gets more use. It all depends on what you're shooting. A couple years ago I got a 28-300. It's now my most used lens for ...
  • Personally, I consider the glass the most important part of the camera. And as long as you take care of the glass it goes out of style much more slowly than the body. Bodies are current for 4 ...
  • Still not as good as silver. However, the silver prints are all monochrome (compatible with photos from a century ago). The more nearly modern color prints from 50-75 years ago are also dyes, and ...
  • If you use Windows, IrfanView can do the trick. Just outline the plate with the mouse and hit ctrl-T. You can then insert any text you want (e.g. "For Sale"). You can choose any color background ...
  • Those 100 year old photos were produced with silver emulsion on paper. Todays prints are largely done with paper and ink. If you want something to last you have to be careful in your selection of ...
  • By extension, the complaint is that Nikon (and other) manufacturers don't make cameras that take prize-winning photos with their auto-compose features and the cameras don't select the ideal ...
  • I shot jpg for about a year when I first got a DSLR. Mainly because I viewed conversion as more work. After screwing up some settings and getting lots of grief trying to process blue images I ...
  • I use Photoshop a lot, but not just for photography. I make posters, signs for my business, logos, illustrations, and other things for websites. I used to use GIMP, but I find Photoshop to be much ...
  • I got a Kirk L-bracket for my camera. I used the allen wrench that came with it to attach it to the camera. I suspect the allen wrench is now in my collection of random allen wrenches but I don't ...
  • I just checked with a photo I took a couple days ago. I had imported the photo into LR but hadn't done any editing. I looked at the .xmp file (I have LR generate sidecar files at import time). It ...
  • I disagree. Paper prints are the only photographs that have lasted 150 years or more. Stating that the future is purely digital is predicting the future, a notoriously imprecise exercise. As far as ...
  • Replied in It is not dpr
    I do this periodically. I generally delete or disable any add-on that I don't recognize. One of my computer gripes is unknown processes. On Windows, if you look at all the programs installed on ...
  • Replied in lightroom?
    On my version (LR5.5) if you are in the develop module, go to "Camera Calibration" and at the top of the panel there is a way to select the processing used by LR. Default is 2012 (current) ...
  • I signed up a while back and I'm generally happy with it. I get the latest updates as they occur. I use LR whenever I take any pictures (RAW only) and I use PS at least two or three times a month. ...
  • One of the things I'd like to see in future cameras is a two-button reset that would restore user settings, analogous to (but separate from) the two-button reset to factory settings. An additional ...
  • I have a D4 and a D800E. I'm pretty happy with them so I'm not planning to update soon unless some disaster befalls them. However, there are some missing features I just might consider an update for. ...
  • I believe that has always been the case. Even pre-internet, mail order purchases were taxable in the state received (at least for states I'm familiar with). An out-of-state seller was not ...
