  • Replied in I miss APS-H
    The 1D X isn't a 1Ds upgrade.  The 5D, and its new high-resolution variants, is more related to the 1Ds than is the 1D X.  I also miss the APS-H sensor availability.
  • Replied in Better question
    A better question is to ask why the new 1D is priced $2500 more than the 1D cameras before it, and why a new lens is priced $4000 more than the old lens that does the same things.
  • Make sure you've informed her of your disclaimers of liability, and try it with no expectations.  It's simply an opportunity for learning.  If she really wanted photos, she would pay somebody to ...
  • Replied in You didn't?
    I was made to learn how to ride a horse before I drove my first car, in which I had a manual tranny with a real clutch. I believe it is important to learn the history of a subject before trying to ...
  • The camera should have excellent ergonomics, especially a good grip. Avoid the cheapest dSLRs with their tiny grips, limited video functions, and non-intuitive control layouts. A dSLR is good for ...
  • Safety Shift: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52874615 The 7D has the ability to adjust the exposure time to match the focal length of the lens. If you are using a flash head, the primary ...
  • Replied in Lens distortion
    Your lens optics may be "soft" or distorted away from its centre, which will cause a reduction in apparent sharpness and worse if your lens aperture is at its maximum.  Closing down the aperture ...
  • You may need the D60 software drivers from Canon, depending on which version of what I assume is Microsoft Windows prior to Windows 7. You should have a package named WIA Driver on one of the ...
  • Notice that there's no such thing as a "Mark II" or "Mark III" Canon camera. One of the first "Mark II" cameras that I remember was the 1D Mark II, and then there was a 5D Mark II, 1D Mark III, ...
  • Replied in The cannon
    Nikon makes nice lenses, but I prefer the cannon.  The cannons are expensive and heavy, but they sure have the best bang for the buck, and they're a blast to use whether the large, single-shot ...
  • Replied in Show an example
    Manual focusing, if you don't know what you're doing and you don't have a proper focusing screen, will be worse than using the computer to focus. If you are trying to photograph a moving object, ...
  • What are those pleas doing? You want me to don what? I wasn't interested in talking to you.  If you want a private message thread, send e-mails instead. An inability to communicate is something to ...
  • I have noticed that some "shipping and handling" prices have increased, which is what I thought was meant by "SH". What frustrates me sometimes is when someone starts babbling in slang and ...
  • Replied in Not recommended
    Although prefocusing without auto-focus is possible, the image-quality expectations are higher today than in years prior to 1980.  Where before you could have a handful of focus-blurred photos and ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Stop reading whatever is telling you that depth-of-field is dependent on "shutter speed."  You are getting bad information! The Canon 50 f/1.8 STM lens is not a macro lens.  It is a replacement for ...
  • You're excluding the reasons why a larger aperture would be necessary, limiting yourself to one vague topic, and trying to apply that one topic to everybody.  The important issue is having the ...
  • The MacOS file system won't do anything for your memory card if "disaster strikes." Journalised file systems are much better about recovering themselves if a hard reboot is required. Your memory ...

  • Are you sure that what you're suggesting works well for what you're doing?  If not, I suggest that you should follow the regular practices instead of relying on new software tricks. The ...
  • Replied in Very good
    The examples in your album look like a very good start. Try to avoid mixed lighting conditions that cause yellowing of the colour balance and haze.
