    Granted it's inconvenient to use a tripod when you're in a crowded area (which is why I use a monopod), I find it much easier to take photos with a tripod when I am able to use it. I would really...

    I might be wrong but from a rough estimate I threw together, I think that at f/3.3 at 72mm, if you get a subject to less than 5 meters away, you should be able to get a DoF of less than a quarter of...

    The 5D's IS actually works quite a bit. Apparently it moves the CCD around to compensate for vibrations and instability. I didn't like the overall feel of the 5D though.

    There is no software method for calibrating monitor settings because it needs a hardware sensor to actually "look" at your monitor. Personally, I just find it much more worthwhile to print out small...

    Bear in mind that telephoto converters reduce the incoming light. I forget the actual amount but I think it was somewhere around 2 stops for a 2x teleconverter and 1 stop for a 1.4. I'm probably off...

    Basically, it's when you capture part of the filters or lens or lens hood in your photo, creating a black ring around the outside or corners of the photo.

    Whoops, I mixed up the brand names in my post. My Lexar 80x and a Kingston 50x.
