  • Well, "smartphones vs cameras" is bound to be ugly as well as repetitive, and I didn't mean to go there. It's just that my wife and I, being among the last on the planet to finally get a phone ...
  • So was that taken in normal mode, or night? Interesting that ISO seems not to vary either, only shutter speed. The lens looks like around 28mm equivalent... and when a phone gets a second camera ...
  • We only recently got these 4a's (so don't have many "examples") and the shot I'm describing is on my wife's phone, not available at the moment as we haven't backed it up to the computer yet and ...
  • Thanks, I guess I was suspecting that.  I was apparently misled years ago by reading about photo apps that mimic a 35mm camera and its controls, but wouldn't work on our phones at that time which ...
  • Created discussion thread Landscape at f/1.7, 1/4500??
    Our Pixel 4a often takes surprisingly good JPGs, but I recently noticed that it exposed an autumn landscape on a mostly overcast day at f/1.7 and about 1/4500sec, which sounds ridiculous. Why ...
  • That is precisely the article I referred to here concerning plastic mounts ("the mount is the internal part of the lens where the bayonet — the metal part that twists into the camera — attaches by ...
  • Thanks to all who offered relevant information, even differences of opinion. I understand that high-tech "plastics" can have remarkable qualities... but also that such advantageous plastics would ...
  • Created discussion thread Plastic bayonets on small Z lenses...?
    Why is Nikon using a plastic bayonet on the new pancake lenses that look quite nice otherwise: how much could that possibly save, in either cost or weight? How durable will it be, and will plastic ...
  • Thanks again for this recommendation!  I finally got around to trying PT and think I'm really going to like it.  All the features I need (including selecting an area to adjust), simple clean ...
  • The Norton Removal Tool (which worked very well and I thought they deserved credit for) is now called the Remove and Reinstall Tool, and sounds intentionally difficult to get it to just do a ...
  • I intend to; I was just curious enough to keep Norton for the trial period. That's where I was, but the Irfan homepage doesn't offer downloads itself. It defaults to FossHub, and lists a dozen ...
  • I don't think it was even a test at all.  I just restored the file (despite warnings) and then manually scanned it with Norton itself(!) which found no threat!  This is ridiculous.  Thanks for ...
  • Created discussion thread How to download IrfanView?
    I downloaded IrfanView (from the default FossHub site) and my trial version of Norton Security (which I haven't got rid of yet) instantly deleted it as a threat. Does anyone know what this is ...
  • No problem, it really is a lovely image. ...So, I've been trying out FastStone and not getting along with the interface very well. There are also things I'm accustomed to doing with Elements or ...
  • There's a lot of good information here, but (again) I don't use RAW files, don't want an "organizer" that creates its own database across directories (which I made separate for a reason), don't ...
  • We have similar tastes (mostly landscape, some wildlife too), and also switched from our old (Nikkormat and Leitz) SLRs to Fuji X-T1s, tired of that, looked at X-T3s and got Z6s instead, whose ...
  • An operating system exists to enable the owner of a computer to run software of their choice. This sort of behavior used to be considered grounds for an antitrust suit, but apparently that was in ...
  • This actually appeals to me. I've used a by now old version (4.2) of Irfanview in this role on my XP system. I thought it made an excellent viewer, and occasionally used the editing for quick ...
  • Created discussion thread Best simple editor for adjusting JPGs?
    There's a lot of amazing editing software, but we don't currently shoot RAW or have anything complex enough to call "workflow", just occasional adjustment or retouching of JPGs.  What ...
  • Right, slot canyons...  claustrophobic landscape photography!
