  • Replied in nah
    Nah. 99.999% of cell phone photos totally suck. Blurred, tilted, out of focus, noisy, a person w/their head and feet cut off. How much technology, professionalism, money, and skill went into that ...
  • Do you have an example as illustration, preferable one of your own? Because I can't quite visualize this type of photo. How does it differ from the typical ...
  • Lens with similar sizes and aperture diameter will tend to behave in a similar way. For exposure, the diameter of the aperture has been normalized to the sensor size. To see the true performance, ...
  • f/4 = f/4.  A meaningless statement peoples like to tout. This is why we need a common statement. And a black lens is a black lens, but what does either of these statements have to do with image ...
  • Replied in funny
    Funny. Same thing happen to me when I tried to use a Mac. Icons flew across the screen, appearing and turning transparent, objects ballooning then shrinking in a bewildering way. I desperately ...
  • Reports are that the 2018 is slower than the previous model and more expensive, not a winning combination. And they aren't meeting base speed. https://appleinsider.com/articles/18/07/18/tested-ther ...
  • What are they going to take out of the phone to make room for those cameras? Oops, companies are already removing headphone jacks and memory card slots. Maybe smaller batteries?

  • 1 KG = 2.2 pound type. Pack light. Know where to wash laundry cheap. Dress in layers. Buy as you go. Don't worry. My wife is the heavy weight at 20 lbs. No dSLR, but more shoes :)
  • That includes luggage, clothing for a month, sundries, a few dozen books, tour guides, maps, medicine, waterproof jackets, chargers and cables, a backpack and a waist pack.  Everything single ...
  • Your hunch is correct, but as others said, stitching software offers different projections that can give  you different looks. Here are some of the projections/mapping/distortions available. http:/ ...
  • Replied in ?
    Where's the broken bat? The black thing laying on the ground? Then Mr. Chavez must already be on base. That's a pretty slow reaction time! Not a good argument for single shot :)
  • Replied in I don't get that
    So you hold the camera out with both hands, compose on the back LCD, slide your finger over the viewfinder to the focus spot, remove your finger, hope the model didn't move, hope your thumb ...
  • Moral: never use a literal, right-brained type to give artistic advice. Let him stick with counting pixels, one by one.
  • Replied in Good question.
    Good question. As I understand it, there are two types of lenses. Ones with a flat focal plane and one with a curved one. The flat one is typically more desirable. You wouldn't want to take a photo ...
  • Because in the case you illustrated, the photographer and model are probably swaying enough so the focus point has changed by the time the photo is actually taken. Instead, use continuous focus by ...
  • Replied in flamebait
    I'm sure that's true, but the post about was how woman photographers can relate better to their subjects, so I was making fun of using this photo as an example. I dunno, strong woman, you can just ...
  • Because you don't like it, he shouldn't worry about it? Well, that makes perfect sense. Why not worry about B&W, street photography, motion blur, high speed photography, HDR, or any of that other ...
  • Replied in flamebait
    Nice flamebait title. The flamebait evaporates. Only a typical article on street photographers lists more men than woman. If the subject noticed you, you've already lost. Street photography isn't ...
  • Congratulations. In two sentences, you've just undermined all your observations, valuable or not. RTFM.
  • Thesis: zooms are less "cohesive" because of the small increments But in reality, most people, and you've backed this up, shoot at one end of the zoom range or the other In addition, I don't think ...
