Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • I have taken tens of Giga Bytes of the Morris Dance events I have been playing the accordion for (camera mounted on the instrument). I did this for reminiscing when I can no longer participate in ...
  • I have taken a 3-year course in photography last century - and I became a photographic technician. I still remember receiving an un-sharp picture of a can of peaches, taken by another diploma ...
  • I have used such short clips to let people in the preceding stills introduce themselves. These clips then give me precise and un-ambiguous captions for the amateur radio newsletter that I have ...
  • Current cameras of all brands and all types have HDMI out. If your projector does not have HDMI in, you may have to go through a TV that has HDMI in and video with stereo audio out (RCA sockets). C ...
  • As others have said, this video issue crops up time and time again. On our 2004 Disney World trip Sandra wanted videos. I had a still camera that did 240x320 resolution videos, and a DV tape cam ...
  • I totally agree with Lcameron. In your example, the reflection is a welcome bonus, but the turtle above the log is the prime subject. As others have said, it depends on the situation - if you get a ...
  • I lost my job as a photographic technician in 1973, and I did not touch a camera again for about ten years. What you are experiencing might just be a natural reaction. Find something else to do for ...
  • Can you do a frame grab to show us? Does the camera play back on its LCD, or via HDMI on a TV, without those black lanes? Is the frame rate at which you shoot the same or a multiple, of the frame ...
  • Look at the mAh (milli Amp hour) ratings on both kinds of battery. The non-Olympus battery rating should be at last as high as that of the Olympus battery. OEM battery ratings are notoriously ...
  • With a program like PSE, magnifying the original is done with anti-aliasing by default. Instead of magnifying any staircase effects, it creates smaller steps in-between the original steps between ...
  • I use a printer kiosk at Warehouse Stationary in New Zealand. If I specify a paper size requiring the print to be made at 100 PIXELS per inch, the computer in the kiosk refuses to accept the ...
  • Replied in Chimping
    I had to look that one up - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimping Sandra prefers to look at the pictures I have taken for her straight away. Chimping may reduce issues arising after distribution ...
  • Replied in What?
    It is a format issue. The multitude of digital formats and specifications makes digital distribution of films unwieldy. You act like a Baptist minister in a mosque. This is a DIGITAL forum. Henry
  • The SZ-30MR only does 2 full size stills during any video clip. The model still survives with a friend of mine - but better implementations of the concept are in the SH series - they do 12 ...
  • Thanks for looking. If Sandra sees that scratchy picture, she will ask me to put more anti-flea stuff on her. Must remember to buy some. Henry
  • My last 35mm camera is the 3x zoom all-in-one SLR, purchase price NZ$ 1200.- (Olympus IS-2000). It was in constant use for about 4 years. I spent about NZ$ 30.- per week on film, processing and ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Cat on a Cold Tin Roof
    I heard Lucky yammering at me from an unusual direction. She was on the neighbour's roof.
    Placed 65th in the challenge. I heard Lucky yammering at me from an unusual direction. She was on the neighbour's roof.
  • Are you in single shot mode? I have to be on my SH-series travel zooms. Henry
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - Cat on a Cold Tin Roof
    I had forgotten to write down salt for the previous shopping trip. As I left the house, There was Lucky yammering at me from an unusual direction - She was on the neighbour's roof. Hopefully, they ...
  • Created discussion thread SH-2 - After the Shopping
    To be blunt, shopping is tedious, but a camera with me makes it just tolerable. Here is a yacht, on the far side of the harbour - The wandering clouds changed the lighting constantly - Two houses ...
