  • As I understand it, cross point sensors are part of the phase detect autofocus system that used to be independent of the main sensor.  Phase detect points work best with the edge of a high ...
  • This web site might help: https://www.gitzospares.com/gt1541-parts.html You may be needing D0702.01 and/or D0701.03. Art
  • Since we now live and travel in a large motorhome, our display options are limited.  We tend to produce about one photo book per year using Blurb.  At least with these we don't worry about losing ...
  • Are these jpegs straight out of the camera? Do you have access to a different card reader you can try? Do you have a cable and software to transfer directly from the camera? Art
  • My first reaction when seeing an image problem like that is a file corruption issue.  Often it is caused by a bad memory card reader when transferring the image to a computer.  Does the problem ...
  • Mark, No, in the intervening years and a couple of house moves, those have all gone.  In our last house I made several prints up to 13"x19" using an Epson R3000 printer and pigment inks.  But ...
  • While this was true for much of film photography, there were "positive" films, mostly slide films like Ektachrome and Kodachrome. These were used for projection of the image directly onto a ...
  • Opening the nef file in photoshop and looking closely, I can't find anything in really sharp focus. The EXIF indicates f/16, 1/6s shutter speed and flash fired. How stable a mount was the camera ...
  • My Lightroom archives go back to 2001 and currently has over 12k images (about 365GB of mostly raw files).  I used to be pretty lax about deleting and tagging images.  A couple of years ago I ...
  • Another happy Blurb customer.  We've made several books of our travels for our own use and not really for general sale.  We've always used ImageWrap covers and upgraded paper and feel that the ...
  • For 16 megapixel sensor, it would take a minimum of 48 megabytes (assuming 8 bit RGB values) to perfectly record an image.  Since most images contain a LOT of spacial redundancy and ...
  • Did you happen to go to Bosque last year during the Festival of the Cranes?  It would be crazy busy then.  This year we were at Bosque during the week following the Festival and found things to be ...
  • Back when I collected minerals, I used short and long wave ultraviolet lights on fluorescent minerals. Samples in natural light Under shortwave UV Art
  • I don't really know/remember.  The IS started to misbehave, so the lens went to Canon Service and it came back working fine.  The same with the later autofocus issue.  I may or may not still have ...
  • I would say that the lens was treated fairly carefully and the IS failed after a couple of years of moderate use. Art
  • I had the IS repaired on a 100-400mm L a little over 4 years ago for $286.24. Less than a year later it went back in for a problem with autofocus and that was fixed free of charge under the ...
  • Yes, there is a button in Library mode to search for faces. And if the auto face detection can't find some, you have a tool to draw a box on the image and tag the person (or probably a pet). Art
  • I just found out that the Artist's Drive Loop will be closed until late March for road reconstruction. Art
  • It sounds like you may be planning on staying in Beatty.  (N.B. - pay attention to the speed zones in Beatty!)  If so, that makes a good base for visiting Rhyolite and then driving down through ...
  • First, I hope you are aware of how large an area Death Valley and the surrounding areas is. I've been all over that area and still get surprised by the time it takes to get to some of the places ...
