Re: A700 and Photoworld

I have in the past tried the technique of switching on and leaving the camera for some time before attempting the first shot. It did not seem to make any difference. Also, since David's previous post I have looked out for any noticable change at the start of a month - but cannot identify anything li...

Re: A700 and Photoworld

Perhaps this isn't the place to discuss the FBF problem, but to continue... On Saturday 29 March 2008 I had a nasty experience. Whereas it normally takes between 1 and 6 attempts to get over FBF, it must have taken in the region of 50 to 70 attempts! I really thought that my 7D had finally expired. ...

I too looked out for this phenomenon when I switched on my 7D this past weekend. The FBF did not appear. I last captured images on 29 Nov, so the camera had not been out of action for long. Normally the FBF seems to be worse the longer the period of inactivity.

Reply on Photoshop vs Elements

Hi Omega - Your experiences sound very similar to mine. Although I have a legal copy of Elements 3 I haven't used it because it tries to take over my computer. However, I now use CS2 for editing and can report that it works fine on my laptop. This is an IBM T43 with 512 Megs RAM and a 50 Gig HD (I h...

The previous 2 articles (photo awards, and A700 well up to the job) came out OK with the left side links at the bottom. However, the latest article (on Harman) has the same old problem.

As you suggest, I will load a copy of IE7 sometime.

Screen Viewing Problems

Interesting! I also note that David's latest article on the Sony photo awards comes out as you say, with the left side links below the main text, which I am now able to see.

XP and IE6 using either 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 1024. Same problem with both screens.

Screen Viewing Problem

Hi David

It bugs me that whenever I attempt to read your articles on Photoclubalpha, some fo the text is cut off on the right hand side.

How can we solve this problem?

Where to start

Hello Hennie Starting off in photography can be tough. Only you can decide what you want to photograph, and you don't know the answers when you begin! Also, your subject and style will change with time. What you want to photograph, and how you want to present your results, determines what equipment ...

Capture One 4 beta

I tried out the beta version of Capture One 4 over the weekend. Unfortunately I only spent a couple of hours with it before I abandoned the test. Points of note: 1. I like the "HDR like" approach that pulls details out of shadows and highlights. For shots that haven't got too much DR, this...

Hi Jeff I have used The Gimp since 2001. In May 2007 I finally gave in and handed over my life savings to Adobe for a copy of CS2. With The Gimp you can do almost everything that you can with CS2, but the problem is that you have far less public tutorial information. So you end up with a heavier lea...

Hi from South Africa

Hello David and all you other folk – greetings from South Africa. You probably won’t see too many messages from me – I generally remain an observer in forums. I daily visit dpReview, DK’s Profile on dpReview, and the onlinephotographer (my current favourite). Less often I visit Luminous Landscape, D...
