  • Replied in ISO
    It's fact. Hop over to dxomark.com and look at the actual measurements for whatever camera you're curious about and you'll find a chart showing the ISO variance for each whole stop of ISO. You ...
  • It's fine as it's not inherently more difficult than the Rebels. As long as you take the time to read the manual and get familiar with it via some practice, you should have no problems with the ...
  • Replied in Focusing tips
    When shooting portraits the face/eyes are everything, so if they're not in focus then it's pretty much a fail unless the content is so good that it overrides that, which is rare. For shots like ...
  • I would have asked her, " If you're so concerned about the children, then why are you being such a drunken lush in front of them?"
  • OP wants an FX upgrade, plus they're the one that chose the D3 and D700. If we're talking compared to other FX bodies then IQ-wise I would have no qualms saying that there are better options. ...
  • I'm probably biased because I still have and regularly use my nearly 8 year old D3 and it's a wonderful camera. Sure, there are cameras now that beat it in overall IQ, but the D3 (and D700) are ...
  • Yup. I just shot a paid gig today with my nearly 8yr old D3 and made just over $800. What did you do?
  • Catharsis is good. Go in peace, my brother. :-)
  • It's an amateur review done by a member of a Japanese photography social media site. I think you can cut him some slack. As far as other reviews in general, I get what you're saying, but one can ...
  • Public service isn't defined solely by non-profit. Many for-profits also do charitable work and if a photographer volunteers their time for a charitable event or activity hosted by a for-profit ...
  • I've done a fair amount of this over the years in a number of areas. Currently, I work for a school system (not a teacher). As such, I've shot various events such as band concerts, open houses, ...
  • +1 to what Marty said, it's pretty much what I'd say too. As for brands, I've used Lowepro and Domke and both are excellent, though Domke is probably a more love/hate kind of thing for a lot of ...
  • "How far is too far?", is a fair question. Myself, I am fairly picky in that sense, I admit. I do a fair amount of paid work and I regularly jury work into shows, so I try to be very thorough by ...
  • A2 is essentially a 16x24 print, which is fairly large and requires increased diligence. I'm noticing these errors on a 22" monitor which is only apx.18.5" wide, and I'm not even looking at the ...
  • Probably a wise idea. Anyone that posts a fourteen paragraph rant about the inadequate quality of most modern optics and then posts an image with a sky as badly photoshopped as the one above is ...
  • Replied in Try AppCleaner
    +1 to AppCleaner. I use it at home and on all of the Macs I manage in the school district I work for, and it is reliable, consistent, and gets the job done simply. FWIW, all it does is to automate ...
  • No, ANR glass is not the same. It's produced so it has a kind of texture to it that prevents Newton Rings, but otherwise is invisible when scanning. There is no substitute that I'm aware of and ...
  • The simplest is to drop of the roll and request std. 4x6 prints. You can use the prints as index prints to decide which, if any, you want to have enlargements from. Nowadays, I would also have ...
  • Replied in Vindicated.
    If she earned the money on her own, what's the problem? Courtesy and respect is trusting each other enough to not to have to answer for something like using your own money for something you enjoy. ...
  • Please. Stop. He's not, and never was, talking about photography in general with that line of commentary, only his preference as it applies towards the viewfinder.
