Re: Blurb B&W photo books

I noticed a few weeks ago that Blurb photo book prices have dropped. Also their shipping price to Japan has dropped. In 2015 this B&W book I made in Lightroom was $70, but now the identical book is $50. The shipping to Japan was $23, but now it is $11. About 3 weeks ago I decided that since this...

Re: How Much Exposure Error Can Be Made With The Fuji X-T2 And The Olympus E-M1 Mark II And Still Have A Usable Image?

I gave up worrying about sensor size, and I put away any prejudiced I had for small sensors and got me a Lumix XZ330, Yes, small sensor but sharp pictures with good DR and very little noise. I have to agree about the Olympus, I have used a EM-10 for a couple of years and I feel the M/4/3 sensor out...

No one has posted in this thread for awhile and since some places around the world are already getting some snow let's revive it.

Glad it finally arrived! It reminds me of the old English expression: A watched pot never boils. :)

Re: The Digicams that Roared

Recently I was reminded again about how even our tiny sensor digicams are darn capable and even my lowly Canon G16 would probably have been a dream years ago for the famous photographers represented in this photo exhibition: Radical Transformation: Magnum Photos into the Digital Age http://www.phot...

. B: SD Memory Card (Class 4 or faster) SDHC Memory Card (Class 4 or faster) SDXC Memory Card (Class 4 or faster) If that is all that is required for video just get yourself a class 10 SD card.

These days the noise, DR, etc. of current cameras, even 1" sensor, m4/3 sensor, etc. seem pretty good compared to APS-C sensors of a few years ago. For me it is rarely even something I think about anymore.

Re: AfterShot Pro and Lightroom

Before CC came along there were these 2: Photoshop CS6 -- $999 Lightroom 4 -- $149 Now there is the CC plan that combines Photoshop and Lightroom for $10/month plus tax. I suppose most people pay about $11/month. If they had a $4/month plan for just Lightroom then that would be better for me and man...
