  • I get what you're saying and agree with it for the most part, but I do think you're overlooking one apsect/benefit of using better gear - it eliminates a variable. It's entirely true that better ...
  • Replied in Scanning Film
    I would second this. I have a V500 which is the prior model and it does a fine job, once you get your scanning chops down after a bit of trial and error (true for any scanner though). I typically ...
  • Another option is to print digital internegatives on transparency sheets and then contact print the images via traditional wet printing. Very common process among historic process devotees. Works ...
  • That’s because Tesla guy is ignorant to the fact that the reason he can lead his simple, well-organized life is solely due to people like the rancher who provide his essential means to live. No ...
  • Because while they're marked Lumix, the actual brand is Panasonic | Lumix. Lumix is the series name for Panasonic's digital imaging products, but not a brand in and of itself. It's a fine line, ...
  • Thanks. And to be fair, I never had a problem with either Smugmug or Photoshelter apart from the inconveniences that came about when they made major overhauls to their back-end which caused a fair ...
  • I've used Smugmug and Photoshelter both, and they can be very convenient, but ultimately I ended up hosting my own website and domain and using gallery/ordering software with it that people can ...
  • I would say it's very important to me and a large part of who I am, but right now I'm in a lull with it. I've been shooting ever since I was in high school, so over 30 years now, and I've also had ...
  • Replied in Shooting Help?
    “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way ...
  • I would agree. You're likely running into a combination of LED stage lights, which pulse as opposed to being continuous, and the electronic shutter, which scans as it captures the light.
  • You, apparently, were not around for the early days of digital when companies tried all kinds of "innovative" form factors for their new cameras. Know what? We still ended up with the DSLR and ...
  • As long as you're happy with the results you're getting, I can't say you're wrong. Myself, I could never be happy with 8MP video stills which is essentially what you're getting, but that's me and ...
  • I picked two identical shots to illustrate the point that I can get pretty much identical results regardless of what technique I use and nothing more. That you can extraploate anything more out of ...
  • I choose not to do it because I'm well aware enough of my capabilities as a shooter to know I don't need to. If it has benefit for you I'm in no position to tell you you're wrong. Likewise, I ...
  • No one needs to tell you anything, and from the looks of your last thread it seems even when they do you don't listen anyway, so a waste of time and energy. Don't like the camera? Don't buy it. ...
  • I think this is more down to preference and shooting style than being a necessity. I shot motorsports and team sports frequently with my D3 and I rarely used the 9fps setting, or even the low ...
  • I've shot sports with everything from a D3 w/ pro glass down to a T2i and a kit lens - and even my 30 yr old F4s. Yes, better bodies make it easier, a bit more consistent, and expand the range of ...
  • Your flash has a PC jack on the side, so you can trigger it with anything that will plug into the PC jack. You will be required to shoot it manually this way, which is fine because the TTL ...
  • The camera is not the problem, it will work fine for amatuer sports. What you need to invest in is gaining knowledge on how to shoot the sports you're insterested in as that is the real crux of ...
  • BTW, what do the negatives look like? Can you post a snapshot of them with a little even backlighting so we can get an idea of how dense they are? Cell pic is fine.
