Re: Street Photography

Dear Herve,

Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I quite agree with the need to be unassuming. But that cloak of invisibility soon lifts once the D200 is raised to the eye (or even the hip),...

Street Photography

Here's a follow up to the video of Jeff Mermelstein linked in the 'photography' thread. How I envy the talent of the guy to push his Summicron under the noses of strangers in the street - I was...

Re: Copyright Infrignement on TE and TL

Hi Scott,

Yes, I had one image used without permission to illustrate a travel website. But I knew the risk when posting. What annoys me, however, is that the TE file size limit is too small to...

Re: NEF images

Paul's a lot cleverer and more patient than me. I've never been so tempted to throw the PC out of the window then when I was grappling with the NX menus. But I agree it offers excellent results and...

Re: NEF images

Hi Taba,

Your CS2 software should have come bundled with Adobe Camera Raw. But for the D40, you may need a more recent release of the Raw software (I think version 3.7 is now downloadable from...

Re: NEF images

Hi Taba,

Not sure which software came with your D40 but you're certainly not limited to Nikon software. Nikon Capture NX produces excellent results but is VERY slow to run unless you have the very...

Re: Fuijifilm Finepix S5 Pro or Nikon D200? Help!

Wise decision, Ben. From what I've researched, the S5 has the best dynamic range of all dSLRs but still falls short of film. In all other respects, the D200 beats it.

Re: Lens advice.....

Hi Rafal,

My advice is. . . BUY NOTHING. You take magical photos with the kit you have. I very much doubt the 17-40 Canon performs better than your present Tamron - unless you are thinking of...

Re: Compression problems

Hi Stephen,

You've already been given some very good advice by Charles and Ben. I've found a similar problem when exporting to CS2, not just with RAW conversion in Nikon Capture NX but also...

Re: How much rain is too much for the Nikkor 18-200 VR?

Hi Dennis,

I wouldn't worry too much if you're just thinking about the odd drop of rain or light shower as you seem to be. But no camera or lens combination will take a deluge without some added...

Re: Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX DC HSM

Emiel,

But I'm not sure you can return a lens on the grounds that it is not quite as sharp or as well-corrected as the one made before it or after it on the production line.

It was this...

Re: To russte: thanks

No problem. It's a small masterpiece (and so much more deserving of points).

Flickr is really what you make of it. A lot of the groups there take a light-hearted approach but there are certainly...

Re: Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX DC HSM

David, Sigma have some fine designs (I have the 24-70 EX in KM) but their quality control leaves a little bit to be desired. Buy a good one and it will wipe the floor with most things; but there are...

And if the martial arts training fails, a great big 5D with which to whack the aggressor over the head!

Professor Ryan

"wipes the EXIF data"! What sort of processing does Professor Ryan subject his poor little 5D files to in his laboratory?! Whatever he does, it works - great tones and sharpness. Best wishes Stephen

Re: 50mm: f/1.4 vs 1.8? Quick help deciding needed

I know the feeling, Cliff! You'd really made the decision but were looking for some support for the more expensive choice! I'm sure you'll be very happy with the 1.4.

By the way, if you shoot RAW,...

Re: 50mm: f/1.4 vs 1.8? Quick help deciding needed

I'd suggest the Nikkor 50/1.8. Like most 1.8s, it's a tad sharper than the 1.4, smaller and lighter and you're unlikely to miss the 1/2 stop when shooting at night (e.g. 1/6 vs 1/8; 3 seconds vs 2...

Sadly, I only had time for the briefest review of the portfolios but, in reality, the judges may spend a similar amont of time on their first run through.

Both portfolios contain 10...
