  • what a load of crap.  Should I feel guilty for getting a good education, good job, and earning more than average, I don't think so.  Nobody handed it to me, I earned it.  If your job skills are ...
  • Elements is Photoshop stuff, its called Photoshop Elements for a reason.  Its more like Photoshop than unlike it, so if you don't want Photoshop, you probably don't want Elements either. yes If you ...
  • I hope people are finally resisting the money grab put on by the NFL and pro sports in general.  You can easily spend over $1k at a NFL game for 4 people, and I heard parking at the Chargers ...
  • Replied in just curious
    did you ever determine if you were trying to use a f6.3 lens with f5.6 or faster focus points?  Or were you using the ones that are fast enough for a f6.3 lens?
  • nonsense,
  • Hey Tony, I read the latest posts and I'm not sure your original goals were clearly stated, but there were a lot of posts so I didn't read them all, I may have just missed it. So now I see you're ...
  • and that is why Congress has such a pathetic approval rating, they lie all the time, and never do anything that actually benefits the people.  Corporations do extremely well though.
  • Replied in first tripod
    I'll throw in another vote for doing anything you can to avoid buying a cheap tripod. If you have no other choice, and have to buy cheap, then at least understand that your thread title is more ...
  • you can use the free Adobe DNG converter to convert any RAW image to DNG format, then open the DNG file with any version of Elements.  No need to update Elements just for new camera support. If ...

  • I'm a bit confused here. If the 48MP pixel is 1/4 the area of the 12MP pixel, since both sensors are the same size, then the 48MP pixel has collected 1/4 the photons of the 12MP pixel, so it has ...
  • oops, page 100 shows the highest sensitivity AF points. If you're using the 72 points at f6.3 that could explain your inconsistency. Try using only the points shown on page 100 and see if you get ...
  • I suspect the lens is at f6.3 max aperture at 300-400mm. Only the center 9 AF points are rated for lenses slower than f5.6, so if you're not selecting one of those points you may be using a focus ...
  • Basically, yes. The whole concept of guide number isn't very scientific, that's why its called a 'guide', so its difficult to use exact math to describe any of it.  The difference between the 105mm ...

  • video is all about bitrate, the higher the bitrate, the better the video quality (assuming a constant frame size).  Unfortunately, the higher the bitrate, the more bandwidth it takes to ...
  • The question was about using a multimeter as a battery tester. There are rechargeable battery testers out there, but I've never used one so I can't comment on their usefulness or accuracy. Here's ...
