    I realized you were talking about the fountain from your reply and another example of 6 secs. exposure,hence I continued talking about it. No issues. It is what it is. Those evenings shots are very enjoyable never the less.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Jul 07, 2015 9:44 pm

    My mistake. I misread your comment on walkers as water and thought you were referring to the fountain shot. I could have gone from f4 to f2 but I had just snapped a shot of the entire wall and forgot to change it.Statistics: Posted by jbtaylor — Tue Jul 07, 2015 8:18 pm

    Dusty,So very true. Yes, indeed. It is the single card that I acquired recently ( about 4 month ago) that is causing the problem.I am looking for a brand new card. Either 2 32GB or a 64GB is what I have in mind.SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Jul 07, 2015 6:37 pm

    Just had to rescue the images from a card (smaller, but don't remember size) from my sister's a850! If a single card starts acting up, replace it! The images are worth more than the cost of a new card!DustyStatistics: Posted by Dusty — Tue Jul 07, 2015 4:34 pm

Free download PDF guide to Adobe Camera Raw

You can open or download an excellent (slightly dated, unrevised since ACR 6.1 but finally translated into English from the original Italian by Francesco Marzoli) guide to all the deeper functions and tricks of efficient workflow using Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop from X-Rite:

This PDF instruction book obviously mentions the use of X-Rite’s ColorChecker Passport for calibrating cameras, that’s why they have sponsored the guide. But it goes far beyond this to explain with clarity all the controls of ACR, and many tips are given on how to use them best.

As an example, we didn’t know that Bridge could be forced to use Camera Raw without taking over Photoshop – meaning it can be run separately, allowing you to do other work in Photoshop while ACR does file conversion and saving from within Bridge alone.

You can load this guide into your iPad or other reading device. Just SAVE the target file, and ADD to your iTunes Bookstore Library, it will then be readable. For other devices simply save the PDF and transfer.
