    A chromebook has its uses and Photoshopping is not one of them. Besides that, more than enough options available on other OS's
  • It's an FA series lens, fully autofocus and it has all of the electrical contacts to allow all camera exposure programs. Absolutely no need whatsoever to do as you suggested. Aperture ring can ...
  • Replied in Great images but
    Allow me to address one factual error. Great to see you visited our little country and enjoyed the "Rijks" as it's commonly called. The "Night Watch" wasn't called that way because it was painted ...
  • Pledges are horrible examples of stuff people say when they really do not mean it at all. It's all a bit too much flag-waving for me. Kind of a 1940'ies throwback. Countries are fictions, the one ...
  • On important occasions I'll carry a K-5 IIs with the venerable DA*50-135mm/f2.8 (75-200mm FF equivalent) as well as the APS-C sensor'ed GR which has a fixed 18.3mm (28 mm FF equivalent) plus the ...
  • Reiki, homeopathy and all the rest - scams, every single last one of them. Proven to be entirely ineffective time and again, a hundred of times over and they still succeed in drafting idiots into ...

  • Replied in Yes and somewhat
    The camera saves the dial-setting (by name) but not necessarily the exact RGB components. It is up to the computer software package to retrieve those from an internal database of cameramodels. But ...
  • Formatting is an excellent way to quickly clear away FAT entries as well as rewriting the FAT itself, effectively rendering the card empty. You do not NEED to do that but it is good practice as ...
  • Replied in Sorry but,
    one of these images should be considered too graphic to post. Extremely inconsiderate to post images of body parts IMHO.
  • Merely copying jpeg image files f.i. with a file manager does not involve setting any quality levels. Files are copied bit-by-bit and the file manager does not even take into account whether it is ...
  • Fattal can be tricky with LuminanceHDR as it is the only tonemapping operator the results of which vary with the image size. It can deliver awesome results however with a bit of tweaking. I tend ...

  • I do, on occasion limit myself to one of the lenses out of my bag for a week or so. Just to experience "single-lens panic" but also to learn to be more creative.
  • Replied in Like you...
