  • Hey, Birk, really nice. I use Topaz Adjust 5 too. I am really surprised at how well it brings out the craters. Even the digital zoom works well. Here are a couple I enhanced with Adjust 5 as well. ...
  • Pre-Af is snapshot mode, which lets you capture spur of the moment focus as we all have experienced. If you have plenty of time to focus and setup the shot, it's probably not the best use of the ...
  • This is aberration caused by a prismatic effect of light not being focused for each color at the same point. Often a blue-purple tint. Usually caused by the lens, or enhanced by the lens from the ...
  • Thanks for your kind comments. I just wanted to add, that -1 EV works with full sun. In shade you might want to use -1/3.  Yes it will be dark, but that's what you want to preserve the color punch ...
  • Here are some suggestions, though not Nikon. These seem easy to use. Someone mentioned a camera with touch screen. Ouch. If you want things screwed up just let someone try to use a touch screen to ...
  • Look in the Buying Guides section--see menu above. There is good info about beginner cameras, travel cameras etcs.
  • Created discussion thread Making Fall Eye-Candy with the P1000
    We tend to travel around looking for spectacular fall color, when it's right in our own yard. I've learned a few tricks to create fall eye candy with other cameras, and here are a couple of simple ...
  • Wouldn't you go into manual focus and simply refocus as the lens gets colder? I assume that is what you did after it was left a while to cool down--right? What you are saying is don't go out on a ...
  • I like the action shot too. Some blurry movement adds to the reality feeling of the image.
  • This was taken through a double-pane window, so consider that. The first is SOOC. The second is what I would normally do to it in Corel Paintshop. No denoising. The third is AiClear with some ...
  • Created discussion thread P1000-Don't veer for deer
    They are all over the backyard and neighbors' yard now. I caught these on the fly. They were moving fast. Overcast afternoon, so ISO at 400,and above and slow shutter. Some focus issues as well. ...
  • AiClear has an auto mode, but it also can be changed to further enhance the detail, etc. It stays within limits to not overdo it. I have used it on my moon photos and it is quite amazing. Like all ...
  • Good test. Night shots are always difficult with noise. I'd say the P1000 shows a little more detail, but that could be just because it zooms in further. What custom settings did you use?
  • A great idea...Looks like the trees grew up in the past 140 years. Would be interesting to do this with more of the paintings from other artists as well. How are you finding the P1000 for scenic ...
  • Here you go. First one is straight out of the camera. Second two have been enhanced to show more detail. These were taken in Auto mode, auto focus, handheld, stabilizer on. P1000-2,800mm SOOC P1000 ...
  • Thanks, I was thinking matte paper too. Plus the black borders make sense--more of a looking through a window feel.  Yeah, the glasses--I do have pro pair I can use. As for color, half-color is a ...
  • Created discussion thread Creating an Anaglyph 3D book
    I got a great deal on a  40 page photo book through groupon and am going to create a 11x14 book of my favorite 3D pics using Anaglyph 3D. I've printed out big Anaglyph photos and with care, you ...
  • I tend to agree on the zoomed in pics. On the wide angle, the B700 seems to be better because it has more pixels and can be blown up more and still maintain sharpness. But when zoomed in, the ...
  • I took the same sequence today, but in the exact same light. The wide angles on the P1000 are still a little mushy when zoomed in vs. the B700. The P1000 begins to shine with more zoom, but still, ...
  • Ok, we've seen the after, can you please post some before pics. Not sure what all the fuss is about. I will say, that there seems to be better noise control in these pics than in mine. Got me ...
