About me:

To learn the art of photography from real photographers.
This added Sept 2014 or 8 years after that first sentance. I have learned a lot. Don't know all, but I also like helping others as I can. Its a community.

The ratings I give to my gear are based on my IMO of performance, features and other subjective traits for the price.

  • It's pretty well-known that man is biased, a reviewer who has a personal like for other cameras will be biased that does not mean he will not try to be fair in trying to do the review. But it is ...
  • You have done a superb job showing what Pentax can do. Its very true, just take some time to learn how to use the camera. As you show Mike, you will be well rewarded for the learning.
  • I had some fun and looked at some P880 pics. Something's I say are IMO but if you check me, do the homework, you will find I am probably right. The P880 pic output was designed for enthusiasts. ...
  • I had so much fun with that camera. I should have kept it, just to use it now and then. It has a true PRO quality 24-140mm lens with aspherical and extra low dispersion elements. The P880 had ...
  • Commented on article Kodak DC280 Review

    Who can remember the Kodak DC5000? I wanted the DC280 but the stores were out of stock. I went ahead and paid the premium for the weather sealing. About $700 for a 2mp! I then found it was rated...

  • Very nice! The f/2.8 balcony shot has some pixel peeping chromatic aberration, Going one stop down takes most of it away. Also the f/2.8 deep corners are just OK. But one stop and its sharp corner ...
  • I agree its strange. Microcenter is giving the K50 plus 18-55mm WR, 50-200mm WR and flash for ~$350, they are gone at my local Microcenter. Its a good thing because now more people are shooting ...
  • Very nice. Such narrow DOF allowing eyes sharp and background buttery smooth. ISO80 and 1/60 lots of light through that lens.
  • In many cases the lens element is constructed with acrylic bonding for the spherical side this allows cheaper mass production. The the bonding process is used in less expensive lens and expensive ...
  • I don't think its dust either. I like the pics you are taking. The car pic shows really nice DR. It looks impossible to get that much detail cleanly at that light level, but it does!
  • Again superb. I did note this time that you used nearly all (if not all) of the DR the K-3II has. You did not clip the highlights. Speaking really of the giant clock. Then you go down under the ...
  • Absolutely stunning and from a Pentax APC body! Just look at my record. I am a hard core Pentax fan. I have the K20D and K-5 and decent lens. But nothing that would take a picture like that. How ...
  • Commented on photo Portraiture in the Adults - posed challenge

    When I was looking before reading comments all I saw was a very beautiful picture of a women. Most guys (including me) prefer (most, not all) women with make up on. So the comments of too much this...

  • I hope all note you basically fixed your problem. I understand what you were looking for to repair it. I understand you did not find it. But how did it get fixed? Something changed when you did ...
