  • LOL . . . o.k. He was moving though . . . and that's at like way more than 100% view. ;) BTW, I like the name of your sample crop from my photo. ROTFL
  • Well, maybe this one is a bit better Ted: OOC jpeg There is a definitely sharp, straight edge visible there, and it's even on an angle! ;)
  • Really Ted? I thought I could see some stair-stepping on the S in Suzuki on that boat engine. Maybe it wasn't sharpened enough. ;)
  • I tried out shooting some action with auto-focus, using my "new" Sigma 100-400mm OS C lens yesterday, on my SD1 Merrill. I was surprised again how good the OOC jpegs looked, so here's one example ...
  • Interesting Steve. This shot is pretty cool, and seems to show a lot of detail. Hey, about that lens. Is that soap bubble bokeh I see in that photo? Can you shoot some more photos of somehing ...
  • I took another look Ted, and the only easily-discernible sharp edge I see is almost vertical, and I don't think that will work for you, will it? See the sharp edge on the right side of the base of ...
  • Wow! That's a big one Ted. Yours is SO BIG! ;) I'm at home, viewing on my 13" MacBook Air now. I was using a little smartphone screen before, which is only like 5" or something like that.
  • Nice shot Steve. I like to see fp samples here. I'd love to see more. It looks like that 65mm is a good lens. I'm impressed with the colors in that sky. Did you have to work on that photo much to ...
  • Well, I would probably run out of data half way through the month, if I had 80 GB of data per month at home. I only use about 3 GB of data on my smartphone, but I watch a lot of Netflix on my home ...
  • What I'm saying is they might upgrade you to more data for free, like they did for me. I was on their max affordable option too. At least that's what I originally signed up for, and thought I was ...
  • Thanks for the info! So there is indeed some significant sharpening done to your version. I don't think it was too much though, since I had to view at 100% and then magnify that view in order to ...
  • Is this something that you will use to update Kalpanica with? It seems Kalpanica is getting updates from time to time. I think that's very cool. I need to figure out the best/easiest/quickest ways ...
  • I think maybe the edge you picked is not the best example of a sharp edge Ted, since the bark of that tree might be a bit too bumpy to make a sharp edge. I'm not able to view the image on a big ...
  • If you haven't called Verizon's customer service lately, you might try that. On my recent autumn trip I was running out of data. When I called them, asking about getting some more data, the ...
  • Yeah, it seems pretty silly. Why not just stick with the same filter thread size?

  • I think this would be a good lens to accompany the 32-64, so if the wide zoom is all you have, but you'd like to go just a little wider, this would definitely be a good lens to get. So is the 22,...

  • Replied in Clouds
    Victor, I don't know what lens you used, but the photo looks slightly out of focus. It still looks nice though. I think it looks a bit painterly, and while there appears to be little or no detail ...
  • Besides, you'll be ready for the FFF. ;) Please post some photos you shoot with that new lens. It's an interesting focal length, and I'd like to see what it looks like. I guess I can just go out ...
  • Replied in Ford Torino
    That's cool. I bet you got a lot of interesting detail shots. I never knew those cars had that spider web paint job on the mirrors. Too bad that car was not kept waxed, in a garage or barn or ...
  • Well Ted, certainly Georg's version of the image looks "sharper" (probably because of more sharpening done in post-processing). I'm not so sure that NOT sharpening so much would really be doing ...
