  1. Lenses and moving from cropped to full-frame sensor.

    Hi all,
    This should be an easy one for those who know more than I.

    I currently have a Sony a65 and am thinking of moving up to the a99.

    Since the lenses I have for the a65 are (I believe) for...
  2. Question regarding image quality and sensor resoution (MP size)

    I understand that the higher the megapixel count, the bigger enlargements (or larger crops) you can make and maintain image quality.

    Here's my question:
    within a given DSLR camera line where two...
  3. Macro lens: "extending" versus "internal" focusing

    I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to DSLR photography terminology-wise, so pardon the awkward use of language.

    I have a Nikon D5000 with a Nikkor 105 mm macro lens which does all of its...

    I'm not sure this is the best place to post this question, but here goes. I'm looking to get a macro lens for my Sony a55. I'm toying between:
    100mm f/2.8
    50mm f/2.8

    I'm a bit of a novice when...

    Thanks. I'm aware about the 105 not having a distortion problem. Was curious about how it works with the 18-200 Nikon Lens. Will check out the link. Thanks!
  6. D5000 "auto distortion control": how effective is it?

    I am currently using a Tamron 18-270 lens with my Nikon D5000 and am frustrated with the marked barrel distortion it has (which I realize is a trade-off with any zoom lens of this sort).

    In the...

    Thanks, all, for your thoughts. I'm also a bit turned off by what seems to be consistent muddiness and lack of sharpness with the Tamron lens (didn't mention this in my original post). I'm going to...
  9. Tamron 18-270mm lens + D5000: questions about distortion

    I've been using a Tamron 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 lens on my D5000 as my primary lens since I first made the move to DSLR photography. While I really like the wide range it offers (I'm not one to want to...

    Problem with new lens (TAMRON 18-270MM)

    I just received a TAMRON 18-270MM lens for my Canon Rebel XSi.

    The lens will only zoom (by rotating the ring from the wide-angle end to about 100mm where it will not extend further toward the...
  11. Suggestions for photography training resources

    I consider myself an advanced amateur photographer (whatever that means) who has recently purchased my first DSLR (and 3 lenses). I feel I have a really good "eye" but know I need to improve the...

    Thanks. I finally found where the app was loaded (not sure how I completely missed it before). Was able to successfully uninstall it...
  13. Camera Window app on a Mac: how do I delete/disable it?

    This is probably more of a Mac question than a camera question, but ever since installing the Canon software on my computer, every time I attach my iPhone to sync, an app called "Camera Window" pops...

    Thanks again, all for your help.
    I weighed all that was said and decided to go with the 60mm Canon lens (largely because it's more portable and ultimately I wont be shooting that many bugs....). ...

    One more quick question. Can someone explain to me the real-world (as opposed to purely specification-based) difference between the Canon lenses:
    EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro ($=446)

    Thanks, all.
    I pretty much figured that iPhoto was fine for downloading. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some fabulous new feature with the Canon-supplied software (admittedly, a highly...
  19. Use Canon utility or iPhoto to download photos off SD card?

    I'm a brand, spanking new XSi/450D owner and have one quick question:

    For purposes of downloading photos from the camera, is there any reason to use the utility provided on a CD with the camera...

    Thanks, again, everyone for your thoughts.
    I'm currently down (based purely on reviews) between the Canon 450D/XSi and the Olympus E-510. Need to schlep to a store now and check 'em out!
