  • Created discussion thread Asus Zenfone 3 Camera
    I've read good things about the Asus Zenfone 3 camera. Has anyone here had any experience with one? http://www.tomsguide.com/us/asus-zenfone-3-zoom-price-specs,news-24168.html
  • Thanks for the article. I ruined the original coating on my screen with obsessive cleaning using eyeglass cleaner and scrubbing. I learned by lesson. I am a total klutz and figured I could easily ...
  • Replied in Edit
    I agree. I downloaded Snapseed and was impressed by what it can do but for editing I want my large-screen monitor on my desktop computer. I download Snapseed when I'm traveling to do minor ...

    If you edit a JPEG repeatedly you get weird artifacts like clumps of color in the sky. I have a file for my original JPEG and if I want to edit it a second or third time to try something ...
  • I have two Bluetooth headsets I use now. One is a fairly large Pioneer SE-J561BT headset. Sound is great. My favorite, though, is a smaller SoundBot SB=220. My only complaint with it is that it ...

    I'm doing the opposite. I've been taking photos since 1962 and enjoy myself immensely. But, I'm getting tired of lugging a large camera around. Many of the pictures I really like were targets of ...
  • I've been shooting raw for years and like it for the advantages in editing. But, with my phone, I shoot in JPEG because the raw/DNG was just too slow. I have a Nexus 5x. Editing the JPEG images ...
  • Ah, but you do expect your luxury car to carry packages home from the store, don't you? I have a nice camera I take with me when I'm planning to shoot photos but that doesn't mean I don't want the ...
  • I use screen protectors on my Nexus 5x to give oleophobic coating when the original has worn off. For me, it's not a big deal. The tempered glass cover with oleophobic coating is inexpensive, easy ...
  • You can what-if till the cows come home. A friend of mine takes bird pictures. That's 90% of his shots. A Canon superzoom meets his needs. Of course, a full-frame DSLR with a $5000 telephoto lens, ...
  • Whichever is best it won't be shortly. I have the Nexus 5x with Android 7.1.1 and enjoy the camera. I'll probably skip the Google Pixel smart phones.
  • I use a USB C/USB A thumb drive. https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Type-C-Smartphones-Tablets-SDDDC-032G-G46/dp/B00V62XBY8/ref=sr_1_2?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1483103622&sr=1-2&keywords=usb+c+THUMB+DRIVE ...
  • I've been taking pictures since 1962. I loved twin-reflex but eventually moved to SLR for interchangable lenses, which I couldn't afford at the time, and eventually to DSLRs. I enjoy photography. ...
  • I haven't paid much attention to point-and-shoot cameras but I've seen quite a few in the hands of tourists where I live that don't seem to have any sort of lens cover. Some with zooms have a ...
  • When will the Go-Pro video cameras replace the bulky, expensive, intrustive professional video cameras? Never. I watched a photographer set up a film plate camera in front of an old church here. ...
  • I'm not sure a "man purse" is something that really exists. But, aside from that, I carry a small daypack when I go out. But, do I want to take the pack off my shoulder, open the zipper, pull out ...
  • Created discussion thread .DNG vs .JPEG
    I got my Nexus not long ago and recently read it could, with the proper software, generate .DNG files. I like editing my photos using raw files. I tried a few programs and settled on Manual Camera ...
  • I do my editing on my computer with Lightroom but if I want to tinker a little on the camera, as in correcting a slight tilt, I just use the editor in the Google Photo program.
  • No, when you got to the "I just want a fully functional device",  you're just whining. I recently bought a smartphone and when I finally got around to using the camera I was amazed. I hadn't shot ...
  • I have a Nexus 5x. I struggled for a long time to move photos, .DNG files, to my computer to edit with Lightroom. Now I have a cable that takes a thumb drive at one end and the other end is USB C ...
