  • They have certainly moved the goalposts on what is considered medium format.  60mm X 45mm was always the low end of medium format.  More accurate terms for Hassy's 44mm X 33mm offering would be ...
  • Yes.  Changing any of the three factors by one stop has exactly the same effect on the brightness of the image.
  • Lightroom's primary way of storing image modifications is to the Lightroom Catalog.  In addition, you can setup Lightroom to create sidecar files automatically for every image in the Metadata ...
  • Typically a minuscule 10-15%. In some cases the file size is larger. That presumes that you are discarding your original RAW files and the proprietary information they contain that may be useful ...
  • None.  DNG is a solution in search of a problem.
  • The typical slide film had a dynamic range of 4-5 stops and the typical negative film had a dynamic range of 7-8 stops.  Every current APS-C and FF sensor beats this handily.  The limited dynamic ...
  • Have a look at LRTimelapse, a program that works with Lightroom to create professional quality videos from RAW images.  It is designed to combine RAW images shot at fixed intervals into a ...
  • My choice was to pair my 7D with a 6D.  They compliment each other very nicely.  The extra features that the 5D MkIII brings to the table are overkill for landscape photography.
  • We have two of these.  One as pictured and one with wide wheels for the beach.  Very useful when you have a lot of gear to transport.
  • Yes. It has a built in autofocus motor and the camera will focus at f/6.3.
  • For portraits I shoot with a 70-200 f/2.8 on a full frame camera. The 50mm is far too short to provide a comfortable working distance for head shots.  The 90mm limits you to a single focal length.
  • With stationary subjects I know what I want before I put the viewfinder to my eye.  With action shots, I know what I want, have the viewfinder to my eye, and wait for the moment to occur.
  • Wow, 8 to 5.  Anyone in business for themselves would consider that part time work.  Even if they had the time, what makes you believe that you are entitled to a personal, specific, response to ...
  • Two of my friends and I have had Lifepixel convert  Canon DSLRS to infrared.  We are all pleased with their service and the conversions.
  • I pre-visualize the scene, moving around to gain the proper perspective and composition.  Only then do I look through the viewfinder, adjust focal length, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and take ...
  • A look at the lost & found bin of any major hotel will provide the answer.  Chargers are left behind quite frequently.
  • Replied in Never (nt)
  • No, they are not like a bi or trifocal.  They automatically and seamlessly correct for focus distance regardless of whether the eyes are looking up or down or straight ahead.  Pure magic.
  • My cataract surgery was performed in April of 2011.  Prior to the surgery I was nearsighted and wore tri-focal glasses.  I opted for Tecnis 1 Multifocal IOLs  made by Abbott Medical Optics.  My ...
  • Replied in No.
    Cheating?  I guess that depends on your criteria on what constitutes an "honest" photograph.  As far as "looks horrible", that depends on the skills of the person post processing the image.  My ...
