  • Replied in Dust or Oil?
    Does it matter if it is dust or oil?  If it won't come off with rocket blower, then you need wet clean. My previous Nikon (not D600) tend to collect dust (or maybe pollen) that just sticks.  No ...
  • Hi guys, I ended up taking 24-70mm on my trip.  However, the day I visited Disneyland, 2-3 inches of rain was expected.  So I didn't bring my DSLR with me to the park.  It was the right decision.  ...
  • I have only heard ISO pronounced as eye-so. This is close to 30 years in the technical field dealing with ISO standards. ISO 9000, ISO 9001, ISO 16949, ISO 26262, etc. More recently in past 6 years ...
  • If you return it, you might end up with another unit with even more hot pixels.  So if you only had 1, and it was mapped/corrected, then I'd keep your current unit.
  • I use digikam on Mac.  Very happy with it.
  • I have used LR in the past.  I'm using Digikam + RawTherapee now.  All on Mac. LR is both digital asset management (DAM) and photo editor.  Digikam is pretty much just DAM.  It's great for ...
  • Replied in Drobo problem
    Sorry to hear about your situation, but I cannot help it with name like Drobo.  I never heard of drobo, but sounds like trouble.
  • OP: I have 6D. I had 24-105 F4L (original). I now have 24-70 F2.8L II USM. And I recently got 16-35 F4L IS USM. On the system/lens: Only get FF lenses if you plan to upgrade to FF in near future. ...
  • Thank you everyone for your input.  8 recommendations for 24-70; 3 for 16-35. I agree 24-70 is better all-around lens.  However, I still have doubt how useful telephoto range is, for Disneyland ...
  • Created discussion thread Disneyland with 16-35 or 24-70mm on FF?
    Planning for Disneyland and Legoland with 6 year old. I will bring my FF camera (Canon 6D) and 1 lens. Lens will be either Canon 16-35mm F4L IS USM or 24-70mm F2.8L II USM. I foresee most of the ...
  • Seems like if you plan to shoot with Nikon D5300, it would make sense to get FF Nikon.  otherwise you have 2 different system to support.  Best to stay with single system. Another option is Canon ...
  • Well, for Lightroom, the edits are included in sidecar xmp file.  The original raw file is not changed.  So it is not a destructive change.  Unless you save the Lightroom output as TIFF or JPEG. I ...
  • OP: not sure why you want to switch. When I upgraded to full frame, I compared D600 vs Canon 6D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III. I ended up getting 6D. The downsides of 6D compared to D600 are: less ...
  • Bottom line is that CFA can affect color. The big discussion in in previous thread and this one (metamerism, metameric, 3D projection, etc) are interesting, but these are not used in ...
  • Wow, there are so many great advice listed here. I don't have a best one. But here are the rules I live by: (1) Equipment is everything. (1st edict of dpreview.)
  • OP: If you have to buy a lens, consider Canon 50mm f/1.8 STM for $125 new, Canon 50mm f/1.8 II used for even cheaper, or 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens for $170 new. These are cheap, large aperture so ...
  • It seems what you guys want already exists. It is the 24-70 f/2.8L II. It is $1600 vs $1000 (retail), so $600 more. With larger aperture but less reach. And much better image quality and distortion. ...
  • Replied in $3600
    I'm very cost conscious.  Always looking for a deal.  I usually watch the pricing for several months.  Below is how I go about this.  Maybe this can help others save some $.  For example, I just ...
  • Looks like you already pulled the trigger.  To answer your question on financial risk. Used Canon 16-35 f/4L sells for $800-850 from private party conditions rated 9 or 10.  Depends on if someone ...
  • I had Nikon D7000 before and I now I have Canon 6D.  Here is my experience. In general with good lighting, I prefer Canon's JPEG (which is embedded in the RAW); difference is small but noticeable ...
