  • Beautiful shot, you have caught the light very nicely.
  • Back in 2010, I was a happy Sony shooter with my Sony A700 and CZ16-80 lens. Sony then released the 16MP sensor. This would give me more resolution and increased DR. Sony initially used the sensor ...
  • Very nice set of pictures! I am a big fan of the Ltds also. They are the primary reason I switched from Nikon five years ago. I was shooting with a NIkon D7000 and the 16-85 zoom, but was becoming ...
  • Not sure what you mean by this. The Backtrack function operates on either a single variant, or all variants of that image based on what you select from the menu. Other images in the C1 Catalog are ...
  • I own a copy of the SMC Pentax-A 35-105/3.5. The build is very solid, quite a heavy lens for its relatively small size. It has a big focus ring and a smaller zoom ring closer to the camera body. ...
  • C1 provides four containers for use in a User Collection. These are Groups, Projects, Albums and Smart Albums. Only two of these can hold pictures - Albums and Smart Albums. The only object you ...
  • My default kit: (1) Pentax K-5 IIs (2) 15mm, 21mm, 40mm and 70mm DA Ltd primes (3) 49mm polarizer and ND 8 filters (4) S ...
  • Replied in blur
    The old rule of thumb of 1/focal length provides a useful guide for shutter speed. So for your Canon 1100 and taking in account the 1.6 crop factor, you should be able to get sharp hand held shots ...
  • Some interesting observations and I am sorry you had the problems. I simply just have not  experienced the problems you have seen. The largest catalog I ever had was 54k images, but that took ...
  • I have been using CO since v8. My two largest catalogs are 27k and 31k. They take about 25 seconds to open, but no performance issues once the catalogue is open. I am running on a 2012 Mac mini.
  • For landscapes in Acadia and the White Mountains, I would look for something a little wider than the 18mm the Tamron superzoom would give you. Acadia especially has lots of great rocky ledges by ...
  • I haven't done the Waterways of the czars cruise, but I have done a couple of other river cruises. Shooting from the boat to subjects on the shore I seldom needed more than 70mm (on APS). My usual ...
  • I can't help with Sedona, but I have been to the South Rim a few times. There are two main roads along the South Rim, the Hermit Road and the Desert Road. You have to use the shuttle bus on the ...
  • I have flown to multiple locations within the US  with a tripod and never had a problem. I use a Manfrotto 190x tripod (metal) and pistol grip head. I do always put the tripod in checked luggage. ...
  • There are opportunities for longer focal lengths of course, but I think the 16-45 should cover you pretty well. If interested, I have a gallery from my last visit to the Moab area in 2015. You can ...
  • If I go out with one lens for some casual shooting or travel photography, its usually 35mm (APS). If I am going out for landscapes and I want to travel light, I will use by 21mm (APS). I find a ...
  • I can highly recommend the DA 15mm Ltd as an excellent prime for the Pentax KP and landscape shooting. My standard landscape shooting kit consists of the 15, 21, 40 and 70mm DA Ltd primes. They ...
  • Tough choice, the 16-85 looks like a very nice lens based on samples I have seen posted online.  I do have the DA70 myself and its definitely delivers great image quality and sharpness in a small ...
  • Beautiful shot, great composition and very nice capture of the light. I use the 21mm Ltd quite a lot myself, it is a very useful focal length. I agree it could be a little sharper, especially wide ...
  • I not sure what you shoot, so can't speak directly to your catalogue, but I am of age where I have given some thought to the question you raised. I would consider my pictures in two categories: ...
