    Re: Sigma??? help

    You haven't mentioned what uses you intend to put your new lens to. There are many arguments for and against IS as a purchasing factor. Personally, I am not ready to pay extra hundreds for lens with...
  2. Re: Upgrade from semi-defective XTi to 40D or send the XTi to Canon Service

    Upgrade the firmware on your defective body first and try it out before disposing of it. There are no warranty limitations when upgrading the firmware. Whatever you do, please do point out the defect...
  3. Re: Looking for my first 'L' series

    I've owned the 24-105 and traded it in for the 24-70 because IQ was better (less flare and better CA, although barrel distortion is noticeable wide open), plus the faster lens. I would strongly...

    While Marx and Keynes turn in their respective graves, I thought you'd like to know the prices your two lenses are retailed at here including taxes but in *Euro* (which, given the naff value of...

    Re: Photoshop CS3 and Epson R2400

    Thanks for input. Did you mean "monitor calibrator"? I have one, the Pantone huey pro. I was looking for someone who uses this printer with Photoshop CS3. Do you?

    tu as vraiment un don pour les portraits. J'ai lu ta bio. Vise plut^ot un meilleur appareil, un 5d d'occasion, par example, ce qui t'ouvrira les plaisirs du 85 f/2 et du 135 f/2 L. Personne ne me...

    Re: 5D mkII & dust

    My 400D (European name) was a dust magnet and required Camera armor. I've been using a 5D mkII for the last month and changing lenses promiscuously. I have seen a few specks and managed to remove...

    Re: long exposures critique

    Thanks for your interesting posts and to others for valuable input. I just wanted to add two points:


    1. Your camera's custom functions (depending the body) can be changed toadjust noise...
  9. Re: Arggg.....Trouble with online printing...Please help!!

    What do you mean, "not come out"? There's always a difference between your monitor's backlit images and prints, unfortunately. There is a utility in PS for your Mac and any good how-to book (try the...

    Unfortunately, I agree with the previous post about the hands (that can be fixed with a lot of PS work), but they don't really detract from the overall charm of the comp. Well done. I'm wonder...

    Photoshop CS3 and Epson R2400

    Does anyone have the same problem as me using PS CS3 on Vista and an Epson R2400? I have to print in JPG using the Epson utility because my prints in PS always come out far too dark and sometimes...

    Re: TSE lens query

    I think you&rsquo;ve raised some interesting points (which is a polite way of saying &ldquo;I disagree&rdquo; [;)]). I own both the 45 TSE and the 24-70 and I find the TSE equal to the zoom at...
  18. Clueless about sensor formats?

    One of the nastier surprises I discovered when I switched to digital two years ago was the dreaded "crop factor" (APS-C / APS-H / DX / FX, four-thirds, etc.). If you&rsquo;ve yet to buy a body and...

    Re: Stormy Day Landscapes

    Well done with the "uninteresting" landscapes. My favourite is No. 2, even though it's the one that suffers the most from unexposure. I'd suggest lightenng the foreground and possibly re-opening the...

    It's olive-picking time and the trees are heavy and bent with fruit. The old ones really grow twisted and misshapen. This shot was taken about an hour before sunset in a narrow valley. I really...

    Re: TSE lens query

    Thanks for your input, Ken. As you know, DxO doesn't include TSE lenses in their list of modules and hasn't yet released a 5D mk2 compatible upgrade (promised for January...).

  24. Re: By The Bay: C&C are very much welcome.

    Thanks for kind comments. I think you can improve white balance / colour / contrast, even in jpg. If you have PS CS3 or 4 or Lightroom 2, you can set the Raw Capture utility to open jpgs and then the...

    Congrats on your new camera. Hope you have a lot of fun with it. Don't know how proficient you are (I'm an amateur), so apologies for insulting your intelligence/experience with the following:
