  • That's a fairly good low-cost lens. I have the Tamron 70-300 VC, which is supposed to be better. I haven't found it to be that good. In fact, I bought a 300mm f/4 Nikkor because I was quite ...
  • I keep my images on a QNAP TS-269 (RAID 1 setup) and am able to edit them using Lightroom. So clearly, Lightroom works with network drives. I also keep my catalog backups on the network. There is ...
  • I saved the image and opened it in Graphic Converter, an application that incorporates EXIFTool. EXIFTool grabs an excruciating amount of information, including the exposure mode. EXIFTool don't ...
  • Looking at the EXIF, the OP used manual exposure to get the gross overexposure that you note. Auto exposure would tend to gray out the sky and underexpose the bird.
  • They must really have been counting the pennies with that design; f/6.3 on the long end and DX to boot. How much do you save by cutting the field to DX at those focal lengths?
  • Adams was a great printer. You should try to find an actual Adams photographic print somewhere. They are much better than any book reproduction, particularly in terms of tonal range. A museum in ...
  • Replied in Turn it off
    This is common with stabilized lenses on tripods. Turn stabilization off when the camera's on a tripod.
  • I also use Lightroom for processing RAW files. When Lightroom imports a file, it uses a "profile" to transform the RAW file into the image you see on the screen. There are lots of profiles but it ...
  • The key to this is the lens mount. Your camera is a Canon with an EF-S mount. It can accept EF or EF-S mount lenses. Any Canon lens will work with your camera. You can also use lenses from other ...
  • Yes. Note that the screenless Leica 262 that Albert referenced costs $5995 without a lens. You can get an otherwise similar Leica with a screen for $5195. This is somewhat incomprehensible to me ...
  • I think there's only one 75-300 and it's a terrible lens. The 55-250 STM is much better and it's stabilized, which is a big help with a telephoto. How is your camera set? It should expose properly ...
  • Replied in I'll try
    The "thin lens" definition is not bad. It's not exact but it's close. There's no contradiction because the focal length definition uses an imaginary concept (a "thin lens" is infinitely thin). Real ...
  • Replied in Misdirection
    I am not baiting you My research skills are more than adequate You have claimed the existence of DX Nikkors costing $5600 and $6300. I cannot find such lenses for sale on Nikon's U. S. site. I ...
  • Any digital camera that doesn't have to be plugged into a socket is battery-powered. I don't know of any digital cameras without removable batteries. Phones tend to have batteries that can't be ...
  • Replied in Who dat lens?
    Then I take your statement as false.

  • Replied in Who dat lens?
    I went to the Nikon website and failed to find any DX lenses at those prices. Could you find it in your heart to specify them?
  • Replied in Who dat lens?
    True, but can you specify which DX Nikkors cost $5600 and $6300? I can't seem to find them.
  • Replied in Old school
    That's what we did when we threw people in the East River. Except the weight wasn't on shore.
  • Replied in Never seen one?
    Airplanes? Look up sometime. They're those things with wings that aren't flapping.
