  • +1 When I use my Nikon SB-800 flash units, I make sure to have the manual on my phone just in case. Just to get into the menu system, you have to remember to hold the "SEL" button until the menu ...
  • Replied in Phone App
    +1 Yes. I would like that capability. When I used to go shoot my daughters at cheer competitions, I would have to set-up my cameras for that. Even though my camera had 2 user settings, I still used ...
  • I think this may also be a target market thing. I know between my Nikon D7000 and my Nikon D5100, the D7000 has a physical AF/MF switch but my Nikon D5100 does not. For the most part, it is a ...
  • Replied in True Color
    LOL I think the more important question is . . . what do I think the viewer is going to expect the colour to be. When I used to do paid portrait shots, I would use an X-Rite Color Checker Passport. ...
  • Replied in True Color
    For me, there is what colour the object is, what it got recorded in the picture, and what I want it to ultimately be. None of these necessarily need to be the same. :) LOL. Now. I do have an X-Rite ...
  • @GenaricName

    Thanks for the heads up on the confusing website UI.

    I'll take a closer look when I get back from camping.

    I will download the demo and try out the variants.

    I guess I am also...

  • Thank you for the reply.

    So I checked out the website for pricing . . . and is Capture One only available through subscription? 'like Adobe Lightroom Classic / CC?

    I guess the main reason for me...

  • It depends on what the shooter is looking for. For some, yes, a Panasonic P1000 or something like it would be the perfect solution. For me, I am taking my Nikon D7000 and Nikon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 ...
  • Does Capture One have "Virtual Copies"?

    I have been looking for an alternative to Lightroom Classic that has virtual copies.

    That feature in LRc saves me so much time.

    But all the alternatives I...

  • When I hear an uncontrollable scream of "OMG This Is Amazing!", I will know that you have finally started shooting with the D610. LOL. When I got the Nikon D750, after having the D7000, the amount ...
  • Replied in Platinum Blonde
    +1 Great shots of some legends! :) I love them! :) For me, I don't go to a lot of concerts. But I got these few shots from the time Platinum Blonde came to our local Street Festival. It was big ...
  • Can't choose just one. Each camera can get me shots the other ones don't, or . . . has a different feel to shooting. Favourite cameras that I've owned . . . Fujifilm E500 -- An oldie, but at the ...
  • Can you just swap the flash between the cameras? Swapping flash units IMHO is a lot quicker than swapping lenses. Just take-off, put-on. And then make sure your settings are good to go. +1 That ...
  • For receptions, I have used off camera flash. Not much but a few times. The benefit of off camera flash is that you can hold the flash unit up high and get the shadows down low, out of frame. You ...
  • For years I used to shoot 2 cameras at my daughters' gymnastics and cheer competitions. Telephoto zoom for isolated shots, and wide angle zoom for environmental shots or shots of the entire team. D ...
  • IMHO you have to figure out what are simply specs on a page versus what might actually hold you back. I've not tried the Canon EOS RP or R, but I would suspect that either camera's capabilities are ...
  • The question I have with regards to WinXP is . . . how does the connection to a USB scanner work? Is it pretty painless to get that to work? Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • +1 +1 +1 Yes. This is an old laptop. It might take more than 4GB, but I'm not willing to buy anymore DDR2 laptop memory. LOL. I happened to have the 4GB laying around from an old laptop that died. ...
  • +1 +1 'just can't go crazy running lots of big programs all at once. LOL. But for vacation / camping all I need is Faststone. +1 I'm amazed at how well it is working. Take care & Happy Shooting! :)
  • So I just updated and kept Seamonkey. It has done so well for 12 years so I figured, let's see how long I can keep it going with Seamonkey. This winter, when I have time, I might try to see if I ...
