  • Ditto on Mike's comments and let me add this; I can't imagine that the binding would last very long and the pages would eventually fall out.
  • Oh, too bad. Kk Fine, pretty much what I have other than the upgraded i7 processor. This is probably the greatest impact and it depends largely on how much/how long the video you are editing. My ...
  • So what system are you using and does it yield better results? I found Dot Tune easy to do and it seemed on the surface to provide decent results (within +-1MA) for my primes and newer lenses like ...
  • Look at the link EG provided and the rationale for the selection.  I use the Dot tune method (look it up) for its speed, reliability, and efficiency.  That being said, I'm not a big fan of MA ...
  • Rodney, I appreciate your perspective but for those who don't have the money what do you say to them?  I'm asked about monitors every month at my photo club and by friends who look to me for ...
  • Replied in Yellow
    Fair enough - quick 2 minute stylizations demonstrating approaches and what the OP needs to think about.  They were not meant as final edits.
  • I think you've answered your own question, namely that you are happy with the 6d and it does 85% of the 5dmkIII, it represents good value, and eventually you're thinking about the mkIV. I have the ...
  • I generally don't use Case 5 and you'll have to experiment. Case 1 is default, try that or 4 or 6. Alternatively, create your own. See: ...
  • Replied in Moreover...
    After you capture the image, expect to post process.  One can't compensate completely for the fact that your subject is blurred b/c of camera shake and/or low shutter settings and the fact that ...
  • There are several points worth learning here: First you are shooting indoors under poor light conditions with unbalanced artificial light. Given that's the case and the light is rather constant, ...
  • Rodney, a better question is what alternatives exist for a person who doesn't have $800-1300 in their pocket for a 27" monitor? It's easy to say, suck it up and if one wants to edit in the highest ...
  • 80 MBPS and a no-name memory maker?  No thank you.  Perhaps you want to trust your images to a sketchy card with poor performance characteristics?  I'll pass.  It amazes me that people will drop ...
  • Replied in Wow...
    Wow, someone else is still using a 3800?  I thought I was the only dinosaur...
  • Glad to hear it.  I had the earlier versions and they were slow and crashed repeatedly on my PC but if it's more stable now... Does it do the adjustments in RAW or must one convert the image first?
  • Care to provide a link?  The problem with absolute truisms is that frequently they are not absolute.  When I used to shoot sports for money M was my friend indoors with consistent and/or strobe ...
  • True, I had problems with it on Windoze.  On Mac it was fine. That's their new product. I don't know of any company which fixes legacy products, but as a software engineer perhaps you do? That's ...
  • lighten up Francis - it was a play on words.

  • Agree, people tend to be more critical of the larger prints and I've found that depending on the paper one can obscure the deficiencies.  Still one can never account for any lack of sharpness, ...
  • You can't fix stupid and naturists should relax and consider that this is a part of evolution.

  • I don't know if you can paint all negatives with such a broad brush?  I have some old ekatachrome slides from the Korean War which are outstanding in every way.  Likewise, negatives that I ...
