  • I have no idea of what is causing your problem. But until you find out, it seems like there might be an easy solution.  Whenever you need to shoot at a perspective that requires a 35mm setting, ...
  • I've got another analogy: Back in the day, singers got onstage in front of an audience and sang sweet songs.  It was very musical and melodic and audiences were satisfied.  Now, musicians are ...
  • Replied in aspect ratio
    I agree with everyone who has favored shooting at full "native" resolution -- which is 3:2 in your case -- and cropping as part of post processing. But there is one thing that has not been ...
  • It is a BIG problem.  That's why you never see any photographs of Antarctica and the like. :-D
  • Replied in 16:9 or 3:2 ?
    Glad I was able to help, red fuji.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I am just an avid amateur who visits here to learn from the Pros. I was going to ask what the "mirror method" is.  But then I ...
  • Replied in 16:9 or 3:2 ?
    I interpreted the OP's post as saying that he was taking photographs of existing two-dimensional images (artwork?) that are 47" X 27" in size.  That would not necessarily mean that he is producing ...
  • I'm sorry my math gave you a headache.  But I notice you are a photographer, so arithmetic is probably not your strong suit.  I'm not a pro photographer (that's why I visit here to learn ...
  • Replied in 16:9 or 3:2 ?
    I don't have a 16:9 setting on my camera so I don't know exactly how it works.  But I assume that this setting crops the sensor so that (in landscape format) it uses all of the horizontal pixels ...
  • Did anyone notice that the metadata says that the shot was taken in Manual mode?  So the OP is not using his D7000 as a point and shoot, letting the camera make selections about ISO, shutter ...
  • These figures address a question that I (a serious amateur) have had.  "How much time (on average) does a pro spend editing and post-processing each image before he is satisfied that it is a ...
  • You have received two responses prior to this post. The method proposed by InageAmateur (the one that I also use) does not attempt to get white balance right "in camera".  Instead, it captures, in ...
  • If the 50-250 STM is able to speak and is inclined to say very nice things about its fellow lens, it may "compliment" the 15-55 nicely. http://www.elearnenglishlanguage.com/blog/english-mistakes/co ...
  • A week ago, I responded to your original post in a way that I think you found useful.  Perhaps I can be helpful again in relation to your follow-up question. To date, I have only used a free HDR ...
  • I wholeheartedly agree, HumanTarget.  Fri13 appears to be talking about "metering" and "setting exposure", which have nothing to do with the topic of this thread. I have responded to your exchange ...
  • Replied in Kudos dko22
    dko22 I have followed this thread (begun by you) from the very beginning (as well as the related poll which has now reached its maximum number of posts) and have only weighed in with a single posting.
  • Apparently you did not notice that the OP and designer of the poll hails from the UK.  It seems clear to me from that "other thread" that you mentioned, that DOF has a different meaning for people ...
  • I use the Bracketing function of my D200 to create a series of images at different exposure levels that can be used to create an HDR photo result.  I assume the D300 can do the same and perhaps it ...
  • Dave .... It strikes me that enemjii just might have a point when he talks about a definitional "mess".  He recently posted an illustration of a man looking through a camera viewfinder (and ...
  • Replied in Since 2002
    A good thing, too, about being in Cenrtal Asia is that you are not very far from your home in Kazakstan.  :-D
  • This thread started a day ago and I have just now read it (from beginning to excruciating end). This comment from you jumped out at me and I just had to ask a question.  It talks about the distance ...
