  • Thanks Michael Fryd and Braysghost for the clarifications. So, now my question (for Braysghost) is: why would you expect B&H to collect out of state taxes, putting their business at a disadvantage, ...
  • Replied in Misunderstanding
    Do you think that B&H can charge sales tax on online out of state sales although no such law requiring that has been enacted by the NY legislature? I don't think so, I believe that would be illegal.
  • Thanks for the test. Just curious why you didn't take one shot that didn't blow out the highlights in the bright patch of the sky on the left?
  • Try resizing the first image in your photostream  so that the width is 1600 rather than 1599. That one pixel may be making a different since 1600 width is a "recognized" Flickr size. Hope this helps..
  • Replied in B&W version
    You have a wonderful interplay of complex shapes here, and I think that a monochrome version really brings that out.
  • Nice shot! My only suggestion would be to eliminate the conspicuous purple chromatic aberration in the upper right hand corner.
  • The Topaz PS plug-in "Lens Effects" will be your friend. Good luck!
  • In my experience with the G7x, f4 at 8.8 focal length produces a very deep depth of field, (although I haven't done the calculations -- just based on what I'm seeing). I'm not disputing the problem ...
  • Yes, I saw your images -- very nice! But if one is pixel peeking I think they would look even better at f4. I think you would have greater leeway for reducing noise while still retaining detail. I ...
  • Your aperture is too small in most of these images. The G7x, in my experience, is best at around f4. Your Flickr photos taken at that aperture, and larger -- f2.8 -- look fine. That's the problem, ...
  • It seems not -- for the G7x such are the compromises that follow I guess from designing such a small zoom lens for a 1" sensor which covers 24-100 mm starting at f1.8. Maybe the A640 is the camera ...
  • No, unfortunately, I haven't found any difference with the macro setting. The suggestion to step back, and use a 35 -- 50 mm focal length, and then crop, is a reasonable workaround, and is one of ...
  • I own the G7x and shoot a lot with it. I wasn't sure what you would find, but you've found what I have: it has quite blurry edges close up (even not very close up), regardless of how much you stop ...
  • Comparing the sizes of the label in the two images, you're much closer with the G7x than the A640.  Also, why didn't you shoot the same orientation, in addition to distance, with each? (in ...
  • Replied in Yellow trees
    For the most accurate color correction you would begin by setting adjusting the WB at three different tonal levels -- for the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows, because, as your comment implies, ...
