  • A histogram is a representation of the red, blue and green channels of an image ... which do not exist in those forms until after the RAW data has been processed. Look at the first reply to the ...
  • If that's what they want, and they are paying you for it, what's the problem giving them what they want?  If the style is something you aren't prepared to do, or is outside your ability to ...
  • Replied in Sorry, but no.
    Sorry, no. It may be an offence to *publish* a photo of a child who is the subject of a protection order. See http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1989/41/section/97 The wording is clear: "No person ...
  • Several cameras have the option to take square pictures (they all have rectangular sensors but just crop the image in-camera to give a 1:1 aspect ratio). Here are two completely random examples ...
  • Replied in whatabout
    Yes I knew what you meant of course and I make spelling mistakes too.  Thank you for taking my infantile sense of humour graciously :-) Best wishes
  • Replied in whatabout
    Yup desserts can be a real challenge. Large items like strawberries should be OK, but meringue dust gets everywhere and cream will dissolve the weather seals.  If you get custard in the battery ...
  • Replied in Yes it is
    That is very well put and I agree. Best wishes
  • Exactly. I can see the OP's implied question: how come the light intensity hitting the sensor is the same when one lens has  bigger physical aperture than the other? The answer is that the lens ...
  • Yes that's what I was wondering... see https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/73719/what-factors-affect-the-dynamic-range-of-a-sensor 'Generally speaking, larger photo detectors, and greater bit ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes - the fact that the OP was having a bit of a laugh at the expense of all the 'DSLRs are dead' threads was pretty obvious. Or so I thought.  A pity that some of the people posting sneering ...
  • Yes - exactly . Look at this article which shows a nice example: http://www.boostyourphotography.com/2013/09/zooming-vs-cropping.html - near the bottom are two images, one taken using a lens at ...
  • Nope. If you take pics with 50mm and 100mm lenses from the same position (and same f-stop), crop out the central 25% of the first image and expand it to the same size as the first image and look ...
  • Yes, it does, if the photographer has not moved.  A shot taken with a telephoto lens, and then a shot taken from the same position with a wide-angle lens but cropped to match the coverage of the ...
  • Replied in cheese
    That works surprisingly well in many cases: (1) Taking cheese gives me a good feeling ... (2) I become more positive about myself when I take cheese
  • It seems pretty clear, unless you don't like double negatives: it means precisely what you wrote in your opening post: i.e. '...that a camera manufacturer (can) make a fixed lens camera with ...
  • You are very free with 'must'. Why 'must' it? Because it would suit you? Engage brain for a second. DPR has existed for nearly 20 years without charging for content and (apparently) is one of the ...
  • Can you post the results with exposure information included? One possibility is that the transmission of the lenses may be slightly different despite the same f-number (i.e. T-stop rather than ...
  • What do you mean by 'better photos'? The 18-55 and 55-300 lenses are pretty decent; their main limitation is that they won't be very good in low light because of the relatively narrow aperture ...
  • Could be one of two things: (i) most lenses are sharper in the centre than at the edge, and if you look critically you will find that images are less sharp at edges / corners than they are in the ...
  • What an extraordinary sense of personal entitlement you have.  Nobody who is on someone else's payroll owes you anything, unless you pay for it. uh.... no.  They really don't.  It's a resource paid ...
