  • Even new televisions have a mode for switching to "full screen" if necessary. "if you are a FULL SCREEN fanatic" In television, full screen generally refers to 4:3 aspect ratio. Even though modern ...
  • It seems he has images that have already been cropped to 16:9 and now wants to view them at 4:3 without distortion, if I understand correctly.  So he wants something like this, but with the ...
  • How would they?  You want the tv to randomly guess at how the photos should be cropped? Why would you set the tv to full screen if you're viewing 16:9 photos on a 16:9 screen?!?  Seems like you are ...
  • My favorite is the first photo, as the composition allows the water to flow through nearly the entire picture. Like the exposure and atmosphere of all of them.
  • I like the bird, nice job getting him while he's looking at the camera. In a picture, the viewer's eyes generally first go to the brightest spot, in this case the glaring sun on the large branch. B ...
  • Replied in Creative
    Not being a creative or artistic-type person, I've found the easiest way to take original photographs is to go places and see things where a million people haven't already been.  Or just to be in ...
  • The worst thing about camera stores, all of the knobs.  And not the knobs on the cameras.  People who go in just to waste the sales reps' time and blah-blah-blah. The only thing worse, if you've ...
  • I use Scala Hosting.  The plan for multiple websites costs $6/mo, and you can have as many as you wish. My domains are registered through Name Silo where ".com" names are about $10/yr.  Sub-domains ...
  • D7000 isn't compatible with AF-P lenses.  The D7100 is, but the D7200 has a faster buffer rate for continuous shooting modes.  And still in their price range. Aside from the buffer rate, the D7100 ...
  • I would guess the best you can do for that price range would be a Nikon D7200 combined with a Nikon AF-P DX 70-300VR. From a reputable dealer that provides a warranty, the camera will be $400 - ...
  • The Epson V600 is just the right tool for your stated needs. The lid is back-lit so it can easily scan negatives and slides too, if you encounter any of those.
  • Replied in Getting back
    If you liked the Nikon D7000, moving up to a D7200 (or D7500 if you shoot high-speed action subjects) will be a nice upgrade with practically no learning curve.  And if you should "drop it in the ...
  • Replied in Who are you?
    Being the guy with the camera means there are very few photos of me.
  • I assume you have a reserved window seat? The hardest thing will be fighting the reflections in the window.  Even if the cabin lights are dimmed for takeoff.
  • If it's Used, the shop has flexibility in pricing.  Offer what you think is fair.  If they won't come down, walk away without any grudges. It could just be that Fuji are overpriced in general.  If ...
  • Yes, they are getting better as far as correcting color, contrast, exposures, etc. But they're not good as developing an image the way you want. If you want to, sure. But I suggest starting with ...
  • I've been very happy with my Asus ProArt. Sorry that I'm unfamiliar with the current models and pricing though.  Mine is a 24" and a few years old.
  • I've considered sling bags, but I think they would interfere with my hiking backpack or daypack. So I just use a small shoulder bag for camera gear that can be worn over the top of the other pack ...
  • This is obviously a major issue for users who regularly move in and out of multiple programs during different stages of the developing and editing process.
    It should be resolved when the MSI...

  • Dear Affinity,
    Please do *not* start down the path of DAM dam[n] databases and catalogs!
