    A lot have already offered technical advice here. I've also been asked to help shoot a very dear friend's wedding and have significant reservations about it. Here are some other thoughts.

  2. When can we buy a prosumer full-frame Nikon?

    I have a friend who goes through DSLRs like some people go through Kleenex. (Early adopter, impulse buyer, all that.) Every time he reports the latest purchase (and subsequent resale on EBay of the...

    Hi Tim,

    I might have given the wrong impression here--I don't think that Sony's product will make Canon lenses worthless. I'm more worried about what their committment level is to supporting their...

    Are you sure about this? I'm looking for the 'slow down' of which you speak but don't see it. I could be wrong on this, but it seems to me that product cycles for enthusiast-level models seems to be...
  5. Sony/Samsung DSLRs and the future of the marketplace

    Hi all,

    So, now that Sony has bought KM and Samsung and Pentax are in strategic partnerships, what's the future for DSLR users?

    Both partnerships seem pretty smart--in terms of backwards...

    Erich,

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'm a moderately advanced amateur photographer and am looking to learn the same sort of lighting skills. I bought the Nikon School "Shooting at the...
  7. What image browser do you recommend for viewing JPEGs and NEF?

    Hello all,

    I've been out of here for a bit...bought my D70s in December and am loving it! I still botch a LOT of my photos, but I'm learning tons, especially with flash photography (I bought an...

    Hi Murray,

    While we're on the topic of personal likes and what's worth (or not worth it) to me, let me add...the D70/70s is also a heftier camera. I love that about the 70--you really feel like...

    I know that there are extended–life CDs out there, I forget their names though. (Stuff like "Armored" comes to mine, a product, I believe, of TDK.)

    CD life has to do with the quality and...

    Just got my D70s!

    Hi all,

    I just bought my D70s! This is the good news.

    The bad news is, since work has been so busy I've only gotten to really "play" with it starting today.

    I took a bunch of pictures today...

    37k photos? Sheesh. That's an awful lot. So you can see why I'm in need of a system to organize all this stuff.



    Ok, and by 'process them as close to perfection as I can in RAW conversion',...

    Hi all,

    As I'm anticipating a visit from Father Christmas sometime soon, I'm starting to think about how I'm going to handle all the RAW files and the related post-processing. I'm wondering how...

    The distinction between his "real" reviews and others is a good one. I find it's usually pretty apparent, but like everything, read carefully.

    I like Rockwell's site over all. I don't mind...

    Your mileage will vary. Wildly.

    How entrepreneurial are you? How much get up and go do you have? Are you comfortable selling yourself to people?

    Ohhhh yeah, man. That's what I meant when I said it "felt like a million bucks"--from the view through the 'finder to the weight in my hands to having two little wheely things, it just felt great.

    Hi Rex,

    I'm one of those who thought twice about the D50/D70 choice. In the end I'm going for the D70 because it feels so much better in my hands. In particular, the D70 has the extra...

    You don't sound rude, you sound realistic and that's cool. I might have underestimated how fine peoples' acuity is with respect to noise (and, in your case as well, bitrates).

    Bear in mind, I'm...

    Hi,

    Just my opinion here, but it occurred to me...(and please don't take this as a personal indictment)...

    I think a lot of people here and elsewhere get wrapped up in discussions of noise...

    Pioneer

    Hi gang,

    Here's my contribution. This is the 120-year-old schooner Pioneer, the oldest surviving iron-hulled boat built in America. Still sailing...I've worked on her for 13 years.

    Hi Warin,

    Can I find that for $100, new, US Warranty? :)

    I'll definitely give thought to getting that lens when I've got the dough. Until then, I'll be using my twin-engined power zoom (size...

    I'm starting from scratch myself. Since the choices were limited here, I voted for the D50. Personally I'm most likely going to buy the D70s, but I'd go for the D50 and an SB-600/-800 so I could...

    Hi Rex,

    I haven't taken the closest look at the lens lineup, no. To be honest, my standard walkaround lens is probably going to be a prime--50mm 1.8. This will free me to concentrate on...

    The thing that gets me excited is the body and the full sealing. I love the idea of being able to use AA batteries. It's fast as hell. The viewfinder sounds extraordinary.
