  • Program mode works exactly the same as full auto mode with the exception that settings can be changed in P mode but not in full auto mode. In other words, if you reset your camera and take a ...
  • The picture was taken at 11:50 am.  Sharpness of long range pictures taken during mid day can be affected by heat waves. To test your camera, try taking 2 pictures of the same long range subject ...
  • OK, got it.  I got confused since your response was to my post.  No harm, no foul. Keep it warm, Sky
  • Please note that I mentioned  a "Samsung HDTV" set.  So it was not a CRT TV set.  Thanks.
  • Had a fine vertical green line problem on a 1.5 year old Samsung HDTV set.  Bought the TV using a Visa card so there was an additional year of Visa warranty coverage beyond the manufacturer's 1 ...
  • If you don't find a solution to your problem, then you can still salvage the photos with lower resolution. You could use the Windows "snipping tool" and snip copies of the photos displayed on your ...
  • To troubleshoot "Why are my printed photos dark compared to the display of photos that I adjusted using my monitor": (1) Suggest not using photos that you took and post processed using your monitor.

    If you like a lot of USB ports on the front of the case (as I do), consider getting a case that has 5.25 inch bays on the front.  Then you can install USB ports in those bays. Also, if you like to ...

  • If you have a late model iPhone, you probably will be disappointed with any camera under $500 to compete with the low-light photos from your iPhone.  Especially since in low-light, the display on ...
  • Google "Photo enlargement software" and different software will be found.  Some (maybe all?) use AI to invent missing pixels when doing the enlargement.  Searching for that on youtube will find ...
  • The iPhone 11 designers and engineers decided on the specs to get the best picture quality from their phone's camera.  Nuff said.
  • The maximum aperture, sensor resolution and computational photography that I listed are just facts found on the web that "contribute" to excellent pictures taken by the iPhone 11.  Nothing more.
  • The iPhone 11's camera has a large aperture of f/1.8 to allow more light in. Its lower resolution 12 MP sensor allows relatively larger pixels for less noise. It uses computational photography to ...

  • Replied in From the OP!!
    How about shooting raw+jpg only for milestone events where the picture quality is as important as the content.  Like weddings, engagement photo shoot, etc.  Then you will have the raw files in ...
  • I previously did that but it didn't work as a backup. I had my Google Calendar on one of my gmail accounts (call it Account-1). But that account receives a lot of spam so occasionally I missed an ...
  • Created question thread Backup Google Calendar on a PC
