  • Sounds wise. OTOH, there's something to be said for mastering the mechanics first.
  • Sounds like you are rotating your camera to recompose. For focus and recompose, maybe try moving the camera parallel to your plane of focus? I'm sure there are people here who know a lot more ...
  • I find myself wondering if you could do something interesting with regular WC paper, if you used Photoshop's dot gain to allow for ink spread. The last time I dealt with dot gain was with PS 2 or ...
  • I'm pretty sure it wasn't refresh rate so much as a beat frequency between fluorescents an CRTs. I switched all the lights around my monitors to halogen. When I went to flat panel monitors, I ...

    Does Sun Surveyor work with Street View? My jaw would be on the floor if they had an AR that worked with SV...
  • I have a D600 with Nikon-fixed shutter. 8K+ actuations later and no spatter. Yeah, I get that folks aren't convinced - but that made used D600s an amazing deal. OP: if you are considering one of ...

    Interesting - thanks for taking the time to review. I've been using Exsate Golden Hour for predicting conditions and visualizing sun position and Jon Sachs' DOF for depth of field (IMO the best one ...
  • Thanks, Joe! Makes good sense now!
  • I'd suggest checking out Bill Claff's site on dynamic range, entering your camera, and using information about where in the possible ISO range your current sensor falls off a cliff* to inform ...
  • I'm getting neither flicker nor noise. I'm one of those unfortunates who used to get migraines from lower-refresh CRTs plus fluorescents (guess it was a beat frequency doing it to me). I'm super ...
  • I am using a profile - in photoshop. Just trying to figure out what picking a paper in the driver does if I've already converted. I get the same results if I pick 'plain paper', but then I'm stuck ...
  • Replied in Major problem!
    FWIW, they go all the way off with the dimmers I have (dimmers predate 'white' LEDs). They do go off partway through dimmer travel (incandescents are still at half brightness). Wondering if it ...
  • Thank you to everyone who responded. It certainly helped me - and hopefully some other folks with the same question. I've taken the liberty of linking this thread in my Amazon review of the ...
  • Created question thread Dumb Pro-100 question
    I'm printing from Photoshop. It looks like the only way I can print borderless is by specifying 'photo paper' in the Canon popup. I also then have to specify a paper type (glossy, matte, etc.). I'm ...
  • Does your camera support UHS-II? There's an additional row of contacts. UHS-I on left, UHS-II on right The UHS-II cards are backwards compatible, but at reduced speed. You mostly just want a card ...
  • Agreed - but IMO it's a lot easier to get a nice creamy OOF background with the longer lens at the same distance (around 50mm on DX, 85 on FX).
  • Don't forget: you can rent cameras as well as lenses. There are a lot of places you can do this online / through the mail - and you may have a local shop that's competitive. IMO, there's nothing ...
  • A Xeon is pretty much an i7 without the integrated graphics, plus additional cores. If you do decide to use a graphics card, maybe check prices on Xeons with the same speed as the i7 you're ...
  • Bingo. Don't be struggling to figure out what your camera can do while the event you want to photograph is happening. I'd also suggest taking some indoor shots, progressively turning the ISO up. ...
  • Different Bob here :-) +1 on the D3. I'd also suggest a used D600. Nikon shipped these with a shutter flaw, stonewalled for a while and finally made a shutter repair available regardless or ...
