  2. Which iPad Sun Positioning & Timing App for Photographers?

    It seems that there are now three apps for the iPad designed for calculating the best time of day to get your shot at a given location, and it's far from clear to me which I should get. At between...

    Re: Place de la Concorde, Paris

    I think so yes, because it's more common and so less distracting. Just follow the advice of neuroanatomist.





    Yeah I don't know how it would look either. At this moment I'm still the only...

    Re: Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Thanks again :D


    OK I'll go back and try the correction again tonight. It's difficult - with the grid in place in Photoshop the obelisk looks vertical, in fact it still looks like it's leaning...

    Re: Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Thanks:-)


    Do you think I might have over-corrected the lean very slightly?


    What do you think about the brightness of the obelisk?

    Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Grateful for your honest views on this. I'm thinking of selling prints to this picture so I want it to be absolutely perfect. The first version is without distortion correction - the second with. My...

    Re: Who's better, You or your AF?

    Having just used the AF micro-adjustment to calibrate my lenses, both of which were quite far out, I can't imagine me ever being more accurate than AF.


    Even 1 or 2 microadjustment points can...

    Re: Lenses....some Focus faster than others...

    I have to say that I don't understandhow the focus speeds of similar f/5.6 lenses can be so great.


    My 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens focuses almost instantly. Add a 2x extender in to turn it into a...

    Having recently found that a couple of my lenses are front-focusing, I just spent some more time calibrating them using the excellent LCD moiree at Northlight Images. Having previously tried to do it...
  12. Re: Nooo!! 5DII "Error 20" and nasty-sounding shutter noises

    I have a rocket blower and it's rubbish, it puts more dust on the mirror / sensor than it takes off. I realise youhave to give it a few hard pumps before use to clear it out but even then it's just...

    I know how powerful compressed air is, and you're right. But I hate it when people just say "don't do this" and don't give any reasons, which is all that I ever read on the Internet about compressed...

    At the same time I'm getting a nasty-sounding shutter noise - as...

    Re: Some Wildlife

    That's news to me - although I've not used other high-end 200mm lenses, I did endless research before buying my 70-200 f/2.8L IS and I've not read anyone else saying that. I mean, many think the f/4...

    Yes, and no - but for the same reasons many other people aren't entirely happy with it.
