Honolulu Marathon when it's over

The annual Honolulu Marathon was held on Sunday morning and the finish line is at Kapiolani Park. I walked over there at 8:30 and took some shots with my A700 and then went back at 11:30 and took some more shots with my Canon A590IS digicam. Last year there were over 25,000 people from Japan running...

Skype sound quality on Eee PC

David, you have mentioned a couple of times that you use an Eee PC with Skype when you travel so this is mostly for you, but certainly if anyone else can help then that would be great! About a month ago I bought an Asus Eee PC 900HA. I am having a bit of a problem using Skype (current version) on it...

A few comments about the A900 and also he says he canceled his Nikon D3x order because of the very high price:

Dynax/Maxxum to Alpha history

This is a nice history of all of the Dynax/Maxxum SLRs/DSLRs leading up to the Sony Alpha series: http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/chronicle For me this is really 懐かしい (natsukashii)! I own the 7000i, 7xi, 9xi (sold in 2000), 707si (Japanese version of 700si), 7, and 7D (returned to Sony and price refunded)...

Does A700 with v4 use less power?

I updated my A700 on the morning of 9/16 with a freshly charged battery. I have been using the camera a bit each day since then and in the late afternoon on 9/20 I noticed something strange. I haven't taken a lot of shots (only 31), but I have had the camera on quite a few times, shot a few, reviewe...

Add link to photoclubalpha.com in forum

There is a link to these forums on the photoclubalpha.com page. I suggest that a link back to photoclubalpha.com be added to the top of the forum page to make it easy to get there.

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...

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...

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...
