  • Give it Your Best Shot • Re: Our Recent Motorcycle Tour of Kinnaur-Lahaul-Spiti July 24, 2016
    Nice Set. I do find first one a tad overexposed. I found the same with some of my A77MII shots of Machu Pichu.I had the Exposure Compensation dialed to +2 by accident. Rear dial default setting in any mode except M. The mountains and water look like a water color in the 3rd one - […]

  • Lens Lore • Re: How wide is wide enough? July 22, 2016
    Thank you classiccameras. Since I have not done any wide angle photography (at least knowingly), the intent is toexplore the genre, for want of a better term. Essentially learn what to do and what not to do. I always used panostitching as my answer to UWA lenses or lack thereof, and that is not always […]

The introduction of a £399 (street price, RRP £449) DSLR with 14.2 megapixels – with or without a useful type of Live View – should have been applauded by reviewers. It’s the single most important point about the camera. No other DSLR approaches this image size and resolution at such a low price.

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw

Apple’s Aperture 2.0 is a tedious program to test, with all its creation of ‘projects’ and ‘libraries’, ‘albums’, ‘vaults’ and nonstandard GUI, and it isn’t fast in processing files or passing them to Photoshop (which it does in 16-bit form, just another step to reverse before saving as far as I’m concerned).
