    I've been looking forward to this for a while, but unfortunately the weather here in Portland is not cooperating. :)

    The last comet I photographed (McNaught) was six years ago:

    Oh, I'm always here. Under the floorboards, lurking. :)



    Thanks. Just been to busy to post anything lately, sorry. :D

    They carry some Phottix products, and I don't know why they don't carry the others, but I'd guess it's because of some boring and mundane reason. Maybe Phottix uses a distributor that is chronically...

    I'm guessing #4. Guess that means I'm a glass-half-empty type. :)

    I use fdcservers.net. $45/month ($200 setup) for a dedicated Atom server, 2TB hdd, and unlimited 10 Mbps connection. It takes me about 3 weeks to transfer 2TB, but after it transferred the first...

    There are several possible issues here:


    All software has bugs. If you lose your original, the DNG may not have all the same data due to a bug in the converter.

    Well, first of all, they're not raw. Canon just calls it that for marketing purposes. Technically, they are in JPEG file format, but they are more similar to a TIFF. They have some JPEG compression...

    I agree with the other advice about spending the money elsewhere since you already have nice lenses. One reason to upgrade would be if you want less flare in your landscape images by getting a prime,...

    Eh, that rabble-rouser must have realized that TDP was getting too civilized for him. (Actually, I've just been busy. Thanks, though.)

    One thing I would add is that most people are more concerned with "background blur" than DoF. So even though 85mm f/2 and 135mm f/2 have the same DoF when framed similarly, the 135mm f/2 has...

    Wait... you forgot to tell us: did she say yes!? Just kidding. :D Congratulations!

    Personally, I don't consider these to be "extreme circumstances." For example, print film can achieve over 7 stops of highlight headroom (over middle gray). If you tried to do the same thing with the...

    Yes, there are several problems with the liveview. Canon doesn't stop the lens down until you take the actual shot (unless you hold down the DoF preview button) and only *simulates* the exposure....

    First time photographing birds with my 55mm macro! Not the most handsome devil I've ever seen. :P

    Bummer. That is some *very* fine equipment you lost there. The fundamental requirement of astrophotography (being far out in the boondocks) is also the very thing that makes it hard to secure against...

    Definitely. Much more so than in the video, where you are limited by the 8-bit file format.

    Well, the honeymoon is over, but I still love my new Nikon. The list of minor annoyances is growing (e.g. the sensor cleaning is worse than my old 5D2, which is itself worse than the new 5D3 I bet),...

    Only in Portland

    I didn't get any good shots or timelapse of the eclipse today -- too rainy and cloudy here. But I did shoot these eclipse watchers. You might think it's the solar eclipse that drives people to...

    No, I think you did a good job of making that clear. It does (or did) put you in the minority of photographers, though. Even the youngest of us are pretty wimpy about carrying that much weight and...

    I don't know if size/weight is a particularly good reason to switch to the 200-400. I don't think the weight has been announced yet, but if the Nikon version is any indication, it's going to weigh...
