  • I had an interesting experience this past weekend when what was supposed to be a short trip to a restaurant in Morton, WA, for lunch turned into an extended day visiting several points of interest ...
  • Replied in Where?
    I don't know about other places, but there was some backlash in the comments section of the YouTube video (link below), enough that he posted some clarifying comments about the importance of ...
  • Replied in forum?
    I can see that you've visited the Nikon SLR Lens Talk forum, and this might be a good subject to ask about there.  Since it's a forum dedicated to Nikon lenses, there's at least a chance you'd ...
  • I know. I saw your words to that effect in the earlier post. Actually, the nice thing about slide film was that the lab did not do any editing of images to make them look right to the technician ...
  • No, I'm not Mr. Rockwell, but I do like some of his articles and test reports!  My preference for JPEG is likely due to decades of shooting slide film, where once I pressed the shutter release ...
  • What do you hoover your carpet with?  I hoover with an Oreck.
  • I thought it already was a generic word. Merriam-Webster has: verb, often capitalized Definition of photoshop, transitive verb: to alter (a digital image) with Photoshop software or other ...
  • Sorry, I'm pretty sure mine was the later 28-80 G introduced in 2001.  I will say, though, that what I had performed very well on my D50 (I took the 28-80 kit version rather than the kit with an ...
  • Perhaps, but you might want to re-visit GerryWinterbourne's post and the article he linked to.  In my opinion, if you're going to shoot raw files, then you might as well optimize exposure for the ...
  • Replied in Camera Strap
    Grove39's post seems to answer the question about the absence of camera straps in the videos you mentioned.  As for me, even when I take a camera with me somewhere, I'm not out for the purpose of ...
  • The condition Porky89 addressed was using a higher ISO setting to be able to get the same brightness with less exposure, such as a faster shutter speed and/or  a smaller aperture. That's the same ...
  • I think the "not really" is needlessly confusing. And while the point about direct cause and low exposure is fine, for the conditions Porky89 described (using higher ISO settings to get the same ...
  • Good points, and I guess I'm not far enough along to recognize such nuances (which must seem far more than nuances to you!).  I'm sure "of the sensor" makes sense to me because of my experience ...
  • Very interesting. Here's a short article that describes how some other words have changed over time. http://ideas.ted.com/20-words-that-once-meant-something-very-different/
  • +1 Possibly, but it's only been 14 hours since his last post.  Who knows what his schedule is?  He might be busy with sleep, work, volunteer activities, caring for family members, or any of a ...
  • In the past I've used a camera bag (Domke) with multiple camera bodies, lenses, filters and other assorted accessories, and often a tripod over my shoulder.  For many years, though, it's become ...
  • I think Dutch was right when saying to think of ISO as controlling the sensitivity of the sensor. When considering advice to beginners, especially to beginners shooting JPEG exclusively, at least ...
  • I've had enough "senior moments" to realize I could be missing something simple, but I'm still not seeing the problem.  Both sets of camera settings look like EV 8 to me on Fred's chart.
  • Somebody else in this thread mentioned a difference between exposure and exposure value, and in your question, both sets of settings would land you at the same place on an exposure value chart, ...
  • Replied in Light Meter
    This last paragraph has to do with incident light meters, and you don't really have to go stand next to your subject to take an incident light reading. The general rule is to point the meter at ...
