  • As long as all the parties involved are enjoying themselves then I don't have any complaints about social media, etc. For myself, as a Gen X'er, I may share a thing or two here and there, but for ...
  • Neat and convenient, but I wouldn't pay them anything unless you really needed a hard copy of a book and didn't feel like printing it yourself. Otherwise, all they're doing is taking freely ...
  • Go take a hike. There are far worse things someone could be doing here besides pulling up a dead thread.
  • Sorry, sometimes when you want optimal results it means you have to lift a finger to get them. If your photos are important to you and white balance is that much of a key point in your eyes, then ...
  • I assume some kind of glue. When they come they're just pristine prints that happen to be a bit thicker then usual. I've ordered many and have never had any arrive damaged. I use Bay Photo for all ...
  • I used to have the same problem. Now, when I order prints destined for framing I order them also mounted to 2mm styrene which gives them a solid base and stops the warping. They stay flat forever ...
  • 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 ...
