  • Or it doesn't actually make any difference. Focus on nothing - put it in macro and aim into the distance, or at a blank wall, or just focus on something far away and shift your aim to something ...
  • It'll be like The Jetsons soon. Videos on cereal packets, and get your robot to take the photos for you. Seriously, it must be nuts to design a camera today, I don't mind them doing it, but to ...
  • Thanks Smaug Cropping maybe - but I like the sliver of sharpness between the blurs. This camera has a very small aperture when zoomed in, and the land distance between top and bottom is about ...
  • Created discussion thread Magpie Takes A Sip
  • I read this twice, but can't find the part that asks whether you should keep them both. Clearly an omission, so I would say yes - keep them both!
  • Replied in Overexposed
    That's usually a metering problem. Though sometimes it can take a while for it to readjust to extremes, from a previous darker state to a sudden much brighter state it can take a few seconds to ...
  • There are some competitions where the entrant has to submit the RAW file to ensure that image has minimal post processing. Enter them. Others where the type of camera and processing doesn't matter. ...
  • There a neato software called Neat Image, which has a couple of ways of working. The first is by taking a sample of the noisy image and processes the whole from that source. The second is by ...
  • Aps-c and FF aren't the same pixel for pixel, because of airy disks. This is the anount of pixels needed to catch a pinpoint of light. Say you took a photo of a distant tiny star, the aps-c will ...
  • Oh right - it was meant for the OP. I'd read through and forgot to return to the top. He said he he didn't understand focal lengths so I clarified your explanation. Aaand I just realized he said he ...
  • Wouldn't bother. If you don't have any  Ebay has cheap NDs (that you just hold over the lens, and put back in their case when you're finished. ND's needn't be as precision finished as polarisers, ...
  • Short focal length = 24mm. Long focal length = 1440mm. Type "B700 manual" into Google, and it will take you to the Nikon website to get the full guide
  • Replied in B700 photos
    I know what you're asking, but that's more to do with the shot. It needs to be at a high shutter to freeze the action, so the birds are sharp. That means you have to freeze the water too. Slow ...
  • I agree - Bernie was my choice, but the DNC are just so - established. If the workers could get the funds a new worker party might get him over the line. He is the most popular politician, and he ...
  • Adults without qualification or skill are generally pointless in the wrong industry, a lucky dip might net a genius from the factory floor, but the odds aren't great they'd make CEO of the year. Wh ...
  • Replied in Also
    Also - there is a purpose built flashdrive that takes SD cards. I saw it advertised or on Gizmodo or somewhere, but didn't follow it up (too many flashdrives already)
  • Do you still have some? How are they holding up? I recall the lightfastness rating as 10-20 years depending on storage. This impressed me as much as the Cibachromes I saw at an exhibition - like ...
  • Replied in Moon Halo
    Photoshop, moon restored, seam banished
  • The thing we need to understand about the Drumpff is that he is a thoroughly pointless person. There is no trace of consideration to anyone else but himself, how much money he can accumulate in ...
  • Depends. Do you mean these sorts of colours? Or these sorts of colours?
