  • As you should have already discovered with the enormous amount of reading you say you have already done. The eye does not have a single focal length or aperture and therefore you cannot represent ...
  • Perhaps they are confusing Mpixels and MBytes.
  • If I was looking to buy such a rug I would want to see what it looked like in a room setting. Photos showing that would be fine to get me interested but I would want to see the real thing and ...
  • I got that message and was surprised to discover that it was exposure that was the issue. One of the colour channels was apparently clipping although the histogram wasn't showing it. However your ...
  • Replied in Use a plug-in
    LR/Transporter might do this for you. The summary text file option sounds like it is just what you are looking for. Not free but I can't think of any way to do it with LR alone other than the ...
  • I won't buy new lenses until the new body is established in the market as a solid and reliable piece of kit. I have a few decent film era FF lenses which would cover most of my needs for ...
  • Try the Adobe DNG codec for Win 7 I think that should work OK in W8. If not there are other codecs out there but you may have to pay for one. Another suggestion is to use an alternative viewer such ...
  • You can't use LR like that. LR is a database at heart and starts from the premise that it stores the location of your images in its database. This is what the import process does and you can't ...
  • How often does this happen? You might consider that what we think is perfectly normal behaviour for a photographer looks a bit odd to non-photographers. Lone individuals on bridges at night means ...
  • Train to become a software engineer so that you know how to write code. Then get a well paid job to earn enough money to pay for the servers and bandwidth you will need.
  • I do both, I use Pbase for wider views and my own website for friends and family. I don't tend to restrict either site but I am not seeking to promote myself, much to the chagrin of my domain ...
  • The Scantips website is a good general introduction to scanning. I also have the Sasha Steinhoff book already referenced as well as his Vuescan Bible. Most guidance will say leave processing to ...
  • Does that fit within your short budget? Your body is not listed as compatible with the current Credo backs which need the DF model as a minimum. I remember reading about some sort of workaround ...
  • Well I bought that lens (Pentax A series 50mm f1.2) new less than a decade ago! Do I win a prize? :)
  • There is no legal way to avoid VAT when buying in the EU. Even if you buy from outside the EU you will still be charged VAT on import.
  • Looking at your Tumblr stuff it doesn't look like your camera or lens are limiting factors. The Kr is a good camera and the stock kit lens is easily able to produce decent results beyond your ...
  • The 10 minute issue may arise from the file format used for the memory card. Some cameras limit any individual folder or file on the memory card to 4GB which is roughly 10 minutes of HD video on ...
  • A quick look at their UK store shows no choice of graphics card for the model the OP is thinking of. Looks like you need to go to the 15inch model for better graphics.
  • The rational behind the CC subscription is that there are no more step version updates. Any updates are made as soon as they are available and not gathered up to create a step update. So no more ...
  • In 13 years since going digital I have printed about 0.05%. I intend to discard all of my old film prints from the last 35 years as soon as I finish scanning the negs and slides. For older family ...
