Re: Still life (Industar 61 50/2,8 L/Z MC)

No, I think radish and orange is too radical - that's the root of the problem. I think some other combination of market produce might bear fruit. David, For your sake, I hope that remark was unplanned. Puns are my favorite form of humor, and when I see such fertile ground, I really have to struggle...

Re: Online Tutorials?

Are there any good online tutorials for handling digital photos? I'm a recent convert from film, so I'm not used to (non-darkroom) image manipulation. I'd rather not re-invent the wheel, and although I'm willing to spend time to learn, I'd like to learn from others mistakes and long hours of pionee...

Re: Industar-61L/Z-MC

I am very impressed. Somehow I have been skipping Industar as some cheap lenses to avoid. Looks like I was much mistaken. I have several Industar lenses in Leica Thread Mount that came on Soviet rangefinder cameras, purchased very inexpensively on e-Bay about 6-7 years ago. My experience was that s...

Re: What would be the next logical innovation for Sony DSLRs?

Is there anyone here worrying about the financial status about Sony? Repeatedly heard from my friends using Nikon/Canon discouraging me for further investment.... :( :( Sony has very deep pockets compared with Nikon. You would have to inspect Sony's annual corporate reports very closely to even fin...

Re: Nikon D3X - errr..mm

David, In an earlier message you mentioned that you had heard that the Nikon 24-120mm was not a good lens. On the chance that you were referring to another source, I'll mention the comments about that lens made by Mike Johnson on his web site, The Online Photographer , on 28 November. Take a look at...

Re: Maybe DNG isn't so bad afterall

RawShooter died eventually precisely because of the DNG issue. Although it supported DNG files, when the Sony ARW format replaced the Minolta format, then, although you could convert the Sony files to DNG, RawShooter could not read them. I know, I tried myself. It is not really of consequence to th...
