  • Have a look at Table 2 at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exposure_value Also have a general read of the whole article and then see if you can read the EV value your scene used with the shot settings ...
  • Low light is one stop below what my lens/camera is capable of dealing with.
  • Is there professional printing equipment or other software out there that actually uses the EXIF DPI setting? I can imagine that some typesetting equipment or software defaults to that and the ...
  • +1.  I keep a word doc of important bits of photography information and have copy/pasted two of Iliah's responses to there so I never lose them.
  • Replied in flavours...
    Thank you for your responses.  I must be over-thinking it and as I said the "look and feel" is not something that is a concern so providing the functionality is there, one way or another, I'll ...
  • Replied in flavours...
    So for example if I decide 2 years down the line that I want monitor profile calibration and I didn't go Cinnamon am I stuck? Or does it just mean I have to install it? I went KDE because it came ...
  • I've installed Mint KDE on a Win 7, and also put the Cinnamon and Mate on a live USB. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at to determine which route I'd like to go.  Is it purely a "look ...
  • There is plenty out there tackling this issue, just google dpi ppi confusion exif. Both you and your graphic designer would do well to read and understand the issues and the first hit I got was ...
  • Good question to which I don't have a good answer though if I give the camera to a waiter I normally make sure I've BBFocussed from where I want them to stand before handing it over. I do ...
  • Thanks but I'm not having a problem taking photographs in different modes, I'm having a problem in understanding what folk are saying about the technology and how I'm supposed to apply that. I grew ...
  • Talk about making things complicated!  I've long thought of a pixel as being the dot I see on my screen. Isn't that pixel/sensel clipping though? Mine was a clumsy way of saying that if you don't ...
  • Is your use of pixel what I might have known as sensel or photosite?  Or are you considering the group that makes up an RGB pixel? However I think I get the concept - more electrons than can be held. ...
  • Just to confirm, in all cases the analogue information collected by the sensor was the same and a 16bit system would have retained more? I note that all the images of the underU4men sign ...
  • Does that mean the ISO setting is affecting the input data stored on the sensor?
  • Created discussion thread Why this ISOLESS blowout?
    https://www.dpreview.com/articles/7450523388/sony-alpha-7r-ii-real-world-iso-invariance-study Shows a variety of shots at the same Aperture and Shutter speed but varying the ISO and then adjusting ...
  • I fear that in your absorption of technical excellence you have totally lost the concept of what a beginner is and how learning starts with baby steps, however imperfect they may be. My early ...
  • Replied in True or False?
    What happened to the writing on the sign and why?
  • But it is not round, that is misinformation. Yep, that's what you see when you go out and look at sky.  But I suspect folk for more than 3000yrs realised something else was going on.  We've only ...
  • Replied in True or False?
    No I don't.  If I'm going to take a photo of a bird in the garden I'll look at the light and set ISO to that, and Shutter speed to ~1/200th.  If that's not enough then I'll vary.  My current ...
  • What's wrong with P mode? Why isn't the exposure(/brightness) triangle helpful to those in P mode? What mode do you shoot in?
