  • Are you talking straight solid styrene sheets, or some kind of foam, etc.? Just curious as I've never run into a problem. Also, was it free standing, or framed, mounted. etc.?
  • US is duty-free for anything up to $800 USD. After that you may be subject to duty. I've bought stuff from Japan and Canada, all under $800 and have never had to pay anything extra.
  • I often get my prints mounted on 2mm styrene, which is strong, solid, and durable, and I doubt it would warp unless subjected to intense heat, which I've never experienced.
  • As far as I'm aware, it's the distance from the optical center of the lens to the sensor/film plane.
  • Decent post, but you made a small slip - his D500 is Nikon's recently released DX flagship model, and not entry level by any means. Wikipedia also notes it as such. You may have been thinking the ...
  • Replied in Caveat!
    You're free to do as you like, but using a focus aid will always be an improvment over just eyeballing it using a screen that was never meant for manual focus in the first place. Focus/recompose ...
  • I'll play - here's some B&Ws. Canon T2i w/ kit lens. Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 f/2.8 AF-S
  • Nope, you just weren't paying close attention to it with the other cameras. I've never seen a camera that didn't have file size variation because, as you've noticed, size generally will vary with ...
  • On a Mac, open the original photo file in Preview, then press Command + I (letter i) to open the Inspector, at the top click the More Info tab (marked with a circled i), then click EXIF in that. ...
  • Portability; a small footprint when in use; easier to use on the fly; provides stability in situations where a tripod may not be allowed; you can use it as a makeshift boom for flashes, mics, etc. ...
  • In general, I'm picky and I hold on to things for a long time on average, so unless I absolutely can't get something new in any way, I buy new every time. My feelings on modern used gear is the ...
  • Basically, 300mm is 300mm is 300mm. As long as you are comparing them on the same camera, or on multiple cameras using the same-sized sensor or film, then they behave exactly the same. Where it ...
  • Created discussion thread 2016 WRX
    A few weeks back I picked up a new car, so this was taken while out on a drive working off the break-in miles. I had a camera with me - not specifically to take car photos - however I happened by ...
  • I'll play, but I'll post a few to give a better feel. Fan Ho was a Chinese street photographer, later cinematographer, who has the most beautiful sense for light I've ever seen. These were shot in ...
  • What color profile are you using when you export to jpg - AdobeRGB or sRGB?
  • Replied in X-T2 shortage?
    As someone who pre-ordered an X-T1, dealt with the light leak and button issues, then had to wait for a corrected replacement, there's no way in heck I would ever do that again. What a waste of ...
  • I would try the big guns first - Yodobashi Camera and Bic Camera, and if those don't pan out then have a look at Map Camera which is a large used shop. Apart from that, there are a fair number of ...
  • Re: the long exposure technique, a good rule of thumb is that something needs to be in the frame for at least half the exposure time in order for it to begin to appear in the photo. So, 1/2 second ...
  • I've used Bay for the last 10 years or so and never have had a problem. They're fast, professional, and the prints are top notch. For serious prints that are going to be in frames (shows, sales, ...
  • Replied in ISO
    It's fact. Hop over to dxomark.com and look at the actual measurements for whatever camera you're curious about and you'll find a chart showing the ISO variance for each whole stop of ISO. You ...
