  • Sure looks like it. You're pretty much doomed when this shows up on a fixed-lens camera. You can try shaking the camera or applying a vacuum cleaner nozzle to any likely seams but that tends to be ...
  • Replied in Shutter speed?
    I don't quite follow this. In my experience, it's only sharp lenses that need high shutter speeds to eliminate blurring. That's because they don't have much blur from aberrations so you can see ...
  • That's the New Hampshire state motto. New Hampshire would probably be OK with a wall in the Southwest US.
  • Pirsig had a Honda but the handlebar shim was for his friend's BMW. Part of the point of the story was that the BMW owner was offended by the use of a piece of beer can to repair his high-end ...
  • I use a 12MP D300. Every so often, I produce high quality images from it. I can just about get a good (to me) 16X20 print out of my best images as long as they aren't cropped much. But if I crop, ...
  • Good point about the AF system. But, as has been noted, the D80 doesn't have live view. Even if you got a newer Nikon like a D90 it would have terrible autofocus in live view because it's a Nikon. ...
  • Created discussion thread No Zen, no art, no motorcycle
    Robert Pirsig, the author of Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance has died. I have found this book to be one of the greatest ever written, a worthy parallel to Moby-Dick in style, narrative ...
  • You have to understand how your camera works. You have a DSLR. It has a mirror in front of the shutter. The mirror sends the light from the lens to the viewfinder, allowing you to see what the ...
  • Replied in Just for kicks
    Perhaps you could tell us what camera is causing this issue. I, myself, have never seen a THM file.
  • The sensor size is relevant because there is a perceptual component to depth of field: http://toothwalker.org/optics/dof.html An image formed on a small sensor must be enlarged more than an image ...
  • The 18-140 won't frame as tightly as the 18-55. Per Nikon specs, the 18-140 has a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.23, meaning you can cover about 4" horizontally at full zoom and minimum focus. ...
  • Well that leaves you without any wide angle. That's a real problem for landscapes. The 85mm f/3.5 is a macro lens. So if you're interested in shooting close-ups, it's a good deal. If you aren't ...
  • Well, if you go, say, from 16 feet with the 7D to 10 feet with the 5D using the same lens and f/stop, you'll have less DOF with the FF camera. But it's not the same picture so it's somewhat ...
  • What you're missing is that if you use the same lens at the same distance, a full-frame camera takes in a wider angle than a crop sensor camera. It's a different picture. Now, if you use a 50mm ...
  • Good insight. Friends will be happy with low-res images as you described. Clients can get thumb drives. If you have too many clients to send images to, then you should have enough money to handle ...
  • That is confusing since the camera generates the JPG from the NEF (RAW) file. So it's fundamentally impossible for the JPG to be more "in focus" then the NEF since they're the same image. How are ...
  • I believe that the D7500 still has a focus motor. What Nikon took away was the aperture coupling ring for AI lenses. For the record, I still use a 55mm AI-S  Micro Nikkor and a 105mm f/2.5 AI-S
  • Isn't that a line from Chuck Berry's Nadine ?
  • Well, as I mentioned in my original post, it's getting so there aren't any photo stores where I am anymore. But when Keeble and Shuchat was operating, they had a tremendous amount of equipment in ...
  • I leave mine in P mode. It seems to work fine that way. You really don't have much opportunity to affect the appearance of the image by messing around with the controls; all you can do is mess up ...
