  • Well, he says that « cropping to achieve compression is foolish », but he doesn’t directly deny that cropping can do the same thing. I am not sure that, today, his understanding of things is ...
  • This is an interesting photo: The side doors look to be about 2 or 3 feet wide. In fact, they are about ...
  • No, it was about ten years ago. I didn't even have a smartphone camera with me, those days coming home from work, years ago. No camera. Nothing, just my eyes. I think for people that haven't ...
  • It was there on that train platform that I fully understood what some forum member was saying, when they said, ”it’s not about lens length, it’s about perspective”.
  • For a few years I would wait for a train at a station that had a curve just before the station. Thanks to the curve, I could see all of the train when it was off in the distance. Off in the ...
  • Instead of all that physical rotation... why not just make it a square ? That would be innovative.

  • Yes, they took the picture far out ... in an orbit that keeps them always in the shadow of the earth. They do it in “slices”. With the device spinning around, and rotating, over a period of years....

  • Actually, one needs to imagine taking that ellipse and wrapping it around oneself. If you were in space, the ellipse wrapped around you, that is what you would see. The brighter part, with all the...

  • Oh geez. I thought it was a scam. I was sure it was a scam. I told them that they could find somebody else. Apparently they have started looking.

    ( just kidding )


    The Camera Store has found replacements. So, that’s the answer, I would say.

    But they wish Chris and Jordan the best, so it is all friendly, as it should be.

  • I was out biking near the Seine river, around 8 in the morning, two weeks ago... and I got a great shot with my iPhone 8 Plus thanks to a remarkable lightning situation. The clouds were just right,...

  • “half-jokingly” wanted to hire you ?

    It sounds like a friendly compliment about a few nice photos you took, and nothing more. Don’t tell your current employer that you might be leaving.

  • Looking on YouTube, I see though, some people are doing great stuff.

  • So you have a way to get Windows 7 installed on the new SSD ? I am not sure if copying from the HDD to the SSD is fully impossible, but it might be, and in any case, I would say that a fresh ...
  • Replied in Irfanview
    I use it for cropping and resizing, and saving at higher compression ratios. And converting to grayscale. But it does more than that. It may have started out as a viewer, but it is much more, and ...
  • Replied in Irfanview
  • Years ago, on April 1st, Phil Askey had a story about a new type of sensor that had pixels that could detect three colors, instead of just one. A good chuckle.

    And then 18 months or so later, the...

  • I already own a few Canon lenses, and I am no longer really passionate about equipment. I like my 6D a real lot, and even my old, old 1D Mark II, I still adore. I wasn’t going to upgrade to the 6D ...
  • Replied in SSD
    We will see what the others say, but I would say a SSD is something you definitely would not want to leave out in a PC these days. The cost of them have gone down enough that their cost is much ...
  • Yes, and I wasn’t trying to say it was a way of avoiding updates.
