Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

This Kenko was not like the Nikon FM10 that is also sold in Japan. The FM10 looks a bit like the old SLRs but the shell is made of light plastic. This Kenko, or at least the several I had a chance to hold and play with at various stores last fall, was heavy metal. Just like my old Mamiya/Sekor 1000 ...

Re: Suggestion: click on link opens new window/tab

Yes, I checked and if I right click I have the option to open a new tab when I click on a link. Thanks!

Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

By the way, I spent 3 months going to school in Tokyo last fall and while there I was amused to see a couple of new film SLRs that are reminiscent of the 1970s with the Kenko brand. They are manual focus, manual exposure metal cameras with the Nikon F mount. Here is one: http://www.yodobashi.com/enj...

Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

Wow you really have a great eye. I'm really enjoying seeing the world through your pictures. very nice Javelin, thank you for the kind words. Since I was a child I have admired National Geographic style documentary photography from all over the world. That and the two years I lived in Morocco with ...

Re: Suggestion: click on link opens new window/tab

SeaMonkey browser (based on old Mozilla Suite and Gecko engine) allows user to open any link in new tab with middle mouse click, ctrl + left mouse click or ctrl + enter. By default these shortcuts open new window. Just go to Edit -> Preferences -> Navigator -> Tabbed browsing. I remember seeing sim...

Suggestion: click on link opens new window/tab

I have a suggestion for you. I don't know if the phpbb3 software allows this, but if it does then it may be something for you to consider. Can you make it so that when a link is in a post, such as this one, that when the link is clicked it opens a new browser window/tab rather than leaving your foru...

Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

Yes, I seem to recall there was a semi-silvered rectangle at the bottom of the mirror and that was related to the spot metering. The spot meter was not in the center but instead a 6% (6% sticks in my head) brownish rectangle in the bottom center of the screen. There was a switch on the right side of...

Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

Just for fun, here is a photo of the Mamiya/Sekor 1000 DTL: http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c143/hrich12/MamiyaSekor_1000-DTL.jpg Of course, this camera was all manual: manual focus and manual exposure. It did have a cds ttl light meter, but with stop-down metering. Unusual for the time, it had bo...

Re: Banning on DPReview.

By the way, my post above about the advantages of the dpreview forum software was in response to something David had written somewhere, I thought in this thread but now I think it was elsewhere, about how he wished that the phpbb3 software could be configured/changed to be more like the dpreview for...

Re: Does Sony IDC 2 sharpen even when set to 0?

Thanks, David. How about for PS/ACR? Should I set sharpening to 0 or leave the default of 25? Is the 25 also just capture sharpening?

Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

I signed up to the forum here some time ago, but I failed to introduce myself. I have had a strong interest in photography since 1970 when I was in junior high school. I used a couple of simple cameras until I finally bought my first 35mm SLR in 1973, a Mamiya/Sekor 1000 DTL with 55mm f1.8 lens. I h...

Re: Does Sony IDC 2 sharpen even when set to 0?

I'm not sure whether IDC2 sharpens at 0, but you will need to upsize the camera file in order to meet Alamy's file size critera. Yes, I know I need to resize to 48mb. I do that in PS using bicubic smoother. Photoshop does this really well in Camera Raw, but as IDC2 does not offer this option you'll...

Re: CF cards for A700.

Yes, I know that the EeePC is available with WinXP. I think I would prefer Linux though since it has a smaller footprint, uses less resources, and starts up/shutsdown much faster. For this type of very small pc with limited memory, not so fast cpu, and the way I would probably use it those things ar...

Re: Explaining my commercial attitude to dPreview

After all these years I have yet to see or hear of Phil complaining about or going after someone for linking to dpreview.com from some other website so I assume he doesn't mind links. It is hypocritical for him to get worked up about your occasional link to an article on your website, especially aft...

Does Sony IDC 2 sharpen even when set to 0?

I have decided that I might as well submit a few photos to Alamy and see if they accept them. I also am not sure if I have the type of photos that they might be interested in. On the Alamy website they make a point of saying that during the file preparation that no sharpening should be used at any s...
