    Input on all in one zoom for DX5600

    They have an 18-200 F3.5-6.3 brand new for $250 at B&H.

    Input on all in one zoom for DX5600

    While that would normally be my first thought, The issue with that is the wide end would be 36mm equivalent on a DX body, and far short of the 200mm, 300mm equivalent, on the max end. The other issue is the price is approaching twice that of the 18-200, which is more than I was looking to spend...

    Input on all in one zoom for DX5600

    I'm thinking about getting the Pup an upgrade for her D5600 normal zoom. Looks like everything is older designs. She really likes her 5600 and doesn't really want an upgraded camera body right now. I've gotten her DX upgrades in lenses till now, but for a normal/all in one, a DX is really the...

    Coffee anyone

    The first Dr Who convention we went to was all classic Who actors. Including some that went back to the Hartnell years. They lost me with Matt Smith, although Peter Capaldi was pretty good. We saw him and Michelle Gomez at the last one we attended. She was incredibly entertaining. Frazer Hines...

    Coffee anyone

    Read the books before seeing the first series. I haven't been able to make myself watch the new series. The picture of Mrs Hall looks like she in in her 30s. :confused: The original was filmed with the assistance of Dr Wight AKA James Herriot. Why they would think they could do a better job...

    Coffee anyone

    What? You never watched All Creatures Great and Small?:eek: Tristan was played by Peter Davison, who went on to play Dr Who in the 80s. He was a decent Dr Who, but was absolutely perfect as Tristan in All Creatures. I got a chance to meet him at a Dr Who convention several years ago. My family...

    Coffee anyone

    Edinburgh, isn't that where Tristan Farnon was always heading off to vet school? On a side note, I have a picture of him and me taken a few years ago. OK, it was one I paid for at a convention, but it was him standing next to me. Funny thing is, he is purported to be 6' 1". I'm 5' 10" and look...

    A lot depends on what you shoot and how you shoot it. I have seldom seen a need for an ND. I have always been able to get what I want by using smaller F stops. Of course, the limitation of that is that you are stuck with a wider depth of field, which for most pictures I want a long shutter...

    Well, there are several down sides to RAW. Bigger files is the first, although not such a big deal with high capacity cards these days, as well as faster processors in the cameras. The next is that you will have to convert to JPG for many applications, as things like posting will not support RAW...

    Welcome. Unfortunately you joined at a time when the forum software has recently been changed/upgraded, so everyone is focused in on chasing bugs in the system, and learning a new way of navigating around the forum. I'm a little more down the road of a similar situation. I was into film...

    Black & white images with one selective colour

    I tried NX briefly before getting Lightroom. My impression was that it was similar in layout to Lightroom. What I do in Lightroom is to create a mask of the item I want to remain in color and then invert it, so that everything else is selected. I then desaturate the mask. Don't know if NX has...

    FILE SIZE LIMIT

    Well, let me try a bigger file than we used to be able to post. This one is 1.27 MB. OK, it wouldn't load, giving me an error that the file is too large. I posted the same image in a smaller file size, which was 417 KB. I suspect that 1MB is the limit, although it might not have liked the fact...

    I see a lot of attachments just show up as attachment 1234, and clicking on it gives an error. Others display as photos just fine.

    What happened to the site?

    Site has been down for the last several days. At least it has for me. Finally, today it came back up. I logged in, but it's totally different than before, and there are no explanations and I see no new posts for the last couple of days. Just wondering what is going on.

    Post your panoramic shots.

    These were 6 and 7 shots respectively, and were shot on a tripod. I went ahead and made some adjustments in distortion in Lightroom in the finished photo, rather than starting from scratch and adjusting the distortion as part of the stitching process in Lightroom. I'm not sure including the...

    Post your panoramic shots.

    Re: Let's see some stitched panoramas… This is my first attempt at panorama shots. It was taken at a nearby park that contains the remains of old rice fields from an antebellum plantation. They have a dock with boats you can either take out yourself or pay for a guided tour. There was a group...
