    I've just read what has been posted on this site about curved sensors. Haven't really read too much. But 2 questions. 1. Would curved sensors work well with trying to capture 180 or 360 degree ...
  • +1 Good to hear from you. That sounds like quite an interesting passage!!! LOL. :) Any hint on the outcome? Or do we have to wait for the movie. ;) Is that book good? I just read the description ...
  • If Pop Art has run it's course, then someone should tell the guy that keeps making those huge rubber ducks! LOL. :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubber_Duck_(sculpture) Toronto just saw one this ...
  • +1 Absolutely. I kinda joked at that. "The manual may not make sense the 1st time you read it. Unfortunately many camera manuals tell you how to do something, but doesn't expand too much on why you ...
  • +1 Good question. If I were trying to preserve highlight detail and not let it burnout, but wanted to show some shadow detail, I would under expose to try to not let the highlights burn out, but ...
  • If it is due to diffraction, and the reason a small aperture is being used is because the camera can't use a fast enough shutter speed . . . how about putting a neutral density (ND) filter on the ...
  • Oh, yeah . . . a couple more things. Reset your camera to its initial state. That way, if you dad has configured the camera in a particular way that pictures don't quite turn out, you aren't ...
  • Rjcoo . . . If just getting started . . . IMHO don't be too worried about everything all at once. If thinking about things stops you from wanting to do it, then that is probably not a good thing. ...
  • IMHO it's not a race. LOL. :) It can be a great journey for the soul that may not have a clear destination in mind. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Nikon D90 is a fine camera. I had one. It has ...
  • +1 It looks like you have been busy!!! How are you liking the Fujifilm X70? I was contemplating that camera. I noticed that the EXIF data on all your pictures show a focal length of 18.5mm. Are all ...
  • +1 Or just wait for that exact facial expression or hair flip or body language that you noticed the model has a habit of doing. Waiting for the precise moment that everything clicks. :) +1 Or if ...
  • Yes. The larger sensor and faster lens would probably make for better IQ indoor pictures with available light. You may also want to ask your question in the Ricoh Talk forum if you haven't already ...
  • If someone paid me $200K to do a staircase, I'd learn how to do a staircase! LOL. :) Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • +1 I guess, once it's been done for a first time, it can't be done for a first time again. To be original, you can't simply copy. Which, isn't that different than the old days when artists had ...
  • +1 I kinda take it as a variation of Marcel Duchamp's readymades. Just some "almost" random object. Although there is criteria applied to picking a good readymade, I guess. So the art is not about ...
  • +1 Thanks for the post. I haven't been to the downtown Henry's store in about a year and a half. Not easy to get to if you have to find parking. I've been having rentals delivered to the ...
  • How about Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans? Is that art? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campbell%27s_Soup_Cans Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • +1 The Pentax K100d was my first dSLR camera, but not my first Pentax. I never made money with my Pentax, but I learned a heck of a lot with it. :) Darn. :( LOL. +1 But have to give the credit to ...
  • How does the .heif format work into things? Is this something for sure? Apple is implementing it in their phones. http://blog.jpegmini.com/move-over-jpeg-here-comes-heif/ Is that a way to add tags ...
  • +1 I agree. I just toss that out there to have some fun. I guess, like Apple. Are they are computer company that became an MP3 player company? Or are they a digital music distributor? Or Nintendo? ...
