  • Very true! That advice was given to me some years ago when I shot a wedding for the first time. It was much he same scenario as this. The couple had no money and just wanted a few decent snapshots ...
  • Shoot JPEG. Switch everything to "auto" and go for it. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • Replied in Good luck
    Well done you! I'm collecting a new (to me) body from a dealer tomorrow. Fortunately, I do have a lens to stick on it. Unfortunately however, although it comes with two batteries, there's no ...
  • Raw files in an appropriate folder on my machine. These were simply copied and pasted from the SD card, using a card reader. No manipulation at all. Shot with a D90. "It's good to be . . . . . . . ...
  • Why not? "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • To be really picky; "NEF" ad "JPEG" are both acronyms and technically should be in caps. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • Replied in RAW
    Quite clearly, you are. The use of caps. where lower case should, in fact, be used is incorrect. It's not a question of accuracy.
  • Replied in RAW
    You're right, of course. It's a mistake; a misuse that's found its way into common parlance but it's incorrect, none the less.
  • Replied in RAW
    I understood perfectly what he meant. Seemingly though, everyone except me misunderstands what "raw" means. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • Replied in RAW
    That's "raw" as opposed to "RAW". It describes "raw" data. It's not an acronym. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • Replied in +1 . This.
    I 'll agree with that. I've been using a Nikon D90 for a couple of years; bought used, mint condition, hardly any use and I'm only now beginning to thing about moving on. I shan't part with the ...
  • They're all that I back up. In fact, they're all that I keep. I've yet to re-edit an image that I've already edited. Once it's done and saved as a Jpeg., that's it. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . ...
  • That's poor advice. Kit lenses these days are more than capable of producing results that will satisfy 99.9% of their users. You've obviously never used Nikon's 18-55 VRII? It may not be as fast as ...
  • I can't see how Windows 10 is to blame except that it does allow things to default differently to what went before if you haven't organised it not to. If she's processed and exported the images, ...
  • That makes sense. "It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"
  • That's quite a combination and one that I doubt that you can prepare for and could be difficult, if not impossibe tto correct satisfactorily in software. Do you have a single light source; a ...
  • I'd say it's a white balance issue caused by your using "auto". What light source(s) were you relying upon? The camera's selecting a WB setting based upon what it "sees" as correct. That sometimes ...
  • I've tried DXO and I won't be bothering again. This looks much more promising. Unfortunately, it also looks as if it's still some way off. I haven't been taken in by the "Cloud" business but I ...
  • Just as a matter of interest, why do you want to use spot metering? With a modern DSLR, such as yours is, the alternative methods pretty much render spot metering unnecessary. I avoid it like the ...
  • I do that as a matter of course and it surprises me that anyone doesn't. I do the same with Amazon; in fact, I download and save a copy of the payment details for every transaction that I make on line.
