  • Created discussion thread Moon rise at sunset
    Ever since I moved to AZ the sunsets grabbed my attention. One aspect of the spectacular display to the west is the often missed delicate colors in the east. I have tried many time to capture and ...
  • Replied in Self Challenge
    Mea Culpa ... Fun time on the course Camera man shot a birdie ball in motion another ball in flight nice follow thru The quality of these is pretty good for electronic viewing - at the highest ...
  • Created discussion thread Self Challenge
    I was asked as a volunteer to cover a golf tournament. I'm always up for a challenge and this one was twofold as I'm neither s golfer, nor a sports photographer. I asked the pros at our golf shop ...
  • This camera has a fixed lens...it CAN NOT be changed. There are "extenders" made for it that will extend the focal length by ~1.7 and extend the wide angle aspect. Additionally there are filters ...
  • A majority of the time I have both smart phone and a camera with me. The camera is used most often because of it's flexibility. For family gatherings and parties in general I don't even take my ...
  • After reading your responses in the thread .... I much prefer discussions with ignorant folks ... they're at least open to curing their ignorance... discussions with the vacuous are complete pointless.
  • Travel tripod might be your solution - here's mine
  • Perhaps one should evaluate this aspect in the same vein as the popular saying "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder", or one man's trash might be another's treasure. Often it's difficult to ...
  • WOW! this camera already has optical zoom to 1200mm (35mm eq)! I suspect you'll get an exact answer if you post this in the Panasonic forum
  • Replied in varies per year
    There's no way for me to evaluate 62 years spending. Since it's one of my two primary hobbies "If I have to ask how much I'm in the wrong hobby"
  • I second WD ... my solution is a 3TB My cloud with a 4TB WD USB3 attached to it. My Cloud provides a shared data store for MAC, PC, & Linux, the USB3 backs up the MyCloud and provides a backup ...
  • Excellent advice! In addition to trusting your eye manually set WB in your camera using a known white object.
  • I prefer using my own NAS for both back up and document sharing. Using a WD MyCloud with an attached USB3 hard drive all household computers are backed up to the USB3 HD, the NAS is also backed up ...
  • My procedure assuming exposure is to my liking : 1) Tone - set white and black points just shy of clipping; adjust highlights, mid range & shadows. Evaluate color and luminence noise - adjust ...
  • Manual focus - sort of. Set the camera so single point focus and used the LCD touch screen to move the points. All the captures were stacked using Photoshop Elements with Elements+ add on.
  • When in a location that's easily re-visited I tend to scout it without my camera to size up interesting subjects and angles. Finding many I'll probably use my smart phone to remind me the subject ...
  • Photographic luck is best defined by (knowledge + preparation) X experience = LUCK
  • Replied in Absolutely!
    Often times capturing an image with "a lesser camera" stimulates one's creativity as it frees up decisions so one's attention is content and presentation.
  • I've been really happy with the results - tripod essential, choose focus points ahead of time, shoot in manual ...  more examples
  • Thank You Elements+ is a relatively inexpensive ($12) add on to PSE. The primary reason I purchased was focus stacking, however it unlocks many of the full blown Photoshop features, layer alignment ...
