  • Are you being targeted by stupid thieves that believe anything on the Internet is free for them to use?  If you find your work being used commercially without permission, will you be upset?  Are ...
  • You really should be starting with 1:1 magnification unless you have prior experience from a scientific background.  Higher magnifications can be frustrating, especially when you don't know what ...
  • Why are you using auto-focus for stationary objects that are at the Infinity focusing distance? Don't use cheap lenses, and especially don't use cheap "superzoom" lenses. If there are distortions ...
  • The lifetime depends on the quality of the camera. If you buy cheap stuff, it may only last a year or less. If you plunk down the £4000 for a Nikon D4, your purchase may still be clicking away ten ...
  • What Canon and Nikon fanboys say: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtvX5pDxXiE
  • This is indeed a strange time during which your camera lens is a more-secure financial asset than your bank account, and you can use the lens while it appreciates in value.

  • What you need is light on the basketball court.  If you don't have light, your image quality and your ability to focus will decrease significantly.  A camera-mounted flash is good for lighting ...
  • Replied in Funny grip
    He's holding that trombone like it's a marching-euphonium.  I wonder if he's a Drum Corps musician.
  • The exposure meter inside your camera body doesn't provide for accurate exposures by itself.  You must do the thinking to determine what should be the correct exposure, as the meter will provide ...
  • Replied in Don't buy new
    If you can't buy other lenses, and you're probably looking at some cheap lens instead of a high-quality kit lens like the Canon 24-105 f/4, why are you considering the purchase of a new dSLR? Any ...
  • Sorry, but that is not a valid answer.  You have failed to explain what means "atm" and also why you referred to the mod() function.  These were keywords that I took from your message.  They are ...
  • Replied in Two questions
    What is the definition of an "atm" and why is knowledge of it specifically important to long-distance and underwater photography? Explain the function "mod(s)" and how it could be used in terms of ...
  • The showing of a "darker" image is subjective.  What matters is the exposure of the pixels in the RAW data, not the brightness of your viewing screen.  Read your histogram. If you want your monitor ...
  • Replied in Cost of cropping
    What you're neglecting to consider is the cost of the cropping after the photo has been recorded.  One photo may take five seconds to crop, but what about a hundred or a thousand huge-megapixel ...
  • If you're worried about intrusion, spray it with water, dry the exterior, and then open the door. If water got past the door and into the inner compartment where the card slot is, the seal is ...
  • Replied in WFT device
    You need a Wireless File Transmitter module connected to the camera, which connects wirelessly to an existing network or to a network that you install at the venue. http://www.learn.usa.canon.com/r ...
  • What you really need is this: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2370616853/nikon-fills-in-the-blanks-on-professional-grade-d5-dslr Need to shoot in the dark with an f/5.6 lens? Flip on the ISO Speed ...
  • Replied in Use a tripod
    You should be using a tripod and doing long exposures for this sort of photography.
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Repeatedly heating and then exposing your camera to cold temperatures can cause some problems, including a problem that you've mentioned. Choose a temperature and let the system remain at that ...
  • Replied in Neither
    I'd take the 18-135 STM lens, but I wouldn't want to pay for it. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-S-18-135mm-f-3.5-5.6-IS-STM-Lens-Review.aspx You should read more about and ...
