    In Photoshop I was having a problem preserving EXIF data while saving edited photos. Irfan Skiljan (author of Irfanview) very kindly advised me do not save to PNG format. That will always wipe out ...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Barn swallow flying high - massive crop
    Been trying to capture small birds in flight. Am experimenting with new strategy of using wide field of view and high resolution camera, much easier keeping the bird in frame.  Swallows are a special challenge because they fly fast and keep changing direction. I lucked out with this one... it paused briefly and was nearly stationary in mid-air for maybe a second before swooping.

  • I paid $998 for my P1000 three and a a half years ago, in November 2018. The lowest retail price for a new P1000 as of today May 17 on Amazon is $1,549. Selling like hotcakes.  What I would like ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Papaianni Park
    Lake Papaianni Park is in Edison, New Jersey, USA located in a densely populated megalopolis. Just beyond its north side there is the main East Coast Amtrak train line that runs from the Canadian border to south Florida. On its other sides there are industrial plants and warehouses, a sports field, municipal buildings, and a mix of single family homes and apartment buildings. Despite these neighbors, the park achieves a nice rural feel, and the lake is quite active with waterfowl including geese, ducks, gulls, and the occasional egret.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Duck landing
    Duck observed landing on Roosevelt Lake in Edison, New Jersey, USA. Subject was far away so this is a massive crop, testimonial to the good autofocus on the camera.

  • Thanks! So if I just want to save the MyMenu settings and not the others, it looks like I could set up MyMenu first, save it to a file named MyMenuSettings, and have that available whenever I want ...
  • Right now every time I re-set/Initialize, I have to re-enter the My Memory data.  Is there a way to save My Memory to the SD card so I can quickly recall it, so I can use re-set on the fly?  Will ...
  • Thanks!  I have to agree with these points... more freedom in final composition... and, in the cameras I have used, digital zoom is only possible with JPEGs.
  • Thanks for agreeing with my assessment that digital zoom sometimes is a better strategy than cropping in post.  But I don't agree that there is a general consensus about this. The only reason I ...
  • My Nikon P1000 has optical zoom range from 25mm-3000mm, and digital zoom to four times that, so I can get 12,000mm using digital zoom. Below is a comparison of the 12,000mm image to a cropped ...
