  • How you came to that conclusion from what WryCuda (or anyone else) wrote is beyond me.  The only difference between the D7500 and the D500 is that the D500 has a "dedicated" button for BBF and ...
  • I have used it as my primary method of focusing since first learning about it about 13 years ago.  But even thought it is my personal preference, I would not say it is for everyone or "the best way". ...
  • Perhaps instead of worrying about it, you can think of it as a "feature".  As in: "Sony cameras are clearly better than others because none of the others can claim a light spot." It appears they ...
  • When you say "act like", you are absolutely correct with respect to the field of view (the boundaries of the scene in front of you that are contained in the image).  But if you stick around in ...
  • Most helpful suggestion I've seen in a long time.  Not the technical rescaling recommendation, of course. But rather the recommendation to have fun.  That's the most valuable contribution by this ...
  • Just a little background: PhotoShop existed for about 13 years before Adobe Camera Raw was introduced.  So until 2003, Adobe software had no raw capabilities.  LightRoom didn't come along until 3 ...
  • Is that double (2x) or half (0.5) the total pixels in the image or the pixels in a single dimension?  If you double a 3x2 pixel block to 6x4, the total pixels increase four fold from six to ...
  • Nice to learn that others are having mysterious results in this area.  I though it might have simply been than a 78 year old like me just doesn't know how to operate a computer,
  • That worked!  The new site is on the list and not even at the bottom once the address of the DPR News Rumors and Talk forum was deleted from the list. Thanks again.  Even though my first experience ...
  • Thanks, that worked for eliminating the obsolete website from the list.  Didn't have to to the Library as suggested by Simon. Now it will be interesting to see how long it takes for the new site to ...
  • This effect can also be seen in the Nikon line. Below iso 500 the $6,000 FF Nikon D6 shows a PDR lower than the 4-year old apsc Nikon D500.  Same thing for the Nikon D5 which was the FF twin to ...
  • Created discussion thread Question for Firefox Users
    This is not a big problem but represents puzzlement about what I am experiencing. When I do a left click on the address block of Firefox, I get a list of frequently visited websites that makes it ...
  • Yes he had a very extensive "workshop" in a purpose-built outbuilding in a rural setting.  Modern equipment for both woodworking and metal working,  He also made beautiful gun stocks from wood, ...
  • The "flash in the pan" image title was a fond reminder of a good friend and now-deceased co-worker who had an interesting hobby.  He was involved in a re-enactment group focused on early US ...
  • I still think your "glitch" is useful information about something that could happen to anyone and cause the kind of unnecessary worry you experienced.  So I'm glad to have have learned about this ...
  • I shoot raw and am careful to preserve these original files in duplicate locations.  However, the nature of these raw files is never modified by any post processing that I undertake.  So yes, I ...
  • I'm pretty much exactly where you are, Graham.  But in order to keep my connected hard drive from getting too full, more ancient images are duplicated on two separate remote hard drives.  So ...
  • Once that pile of 1's and 0's that constitute a raw file are "converted" by a raw converter, is the pile of 1's and 0's that support what you see on the display identical to or different than the ...
  • I told my wife about my post and she told be something about her poster that I was not aware of.  The quote about "Art" being what you can get away with was from Andy Warhol.
  • I am not an expert in art. But my wife who is a docent for one of the country's top art museums is. She has taken many courses in art history and art appreciation. So I go by her guidance about ...
