    You can read about the rule of thirds here. You "violated" it because your horizon is (almost) centered vertically in the photo. But the colours are so lovely that the "violation" really doesn't seem...

    K1W1, great idea for a photo challenge. I'm enjoying seeing what people have come up with.

    Had to think about this one for awhile. When I finally came up with an idea, I completely forgot about...

    I can read the EXIF data in your two photos with Opanda IExif. But the ISO information is missing, probably because you used the Auto ISO setting on your camera. Unless you set the ISO manually, some...

    Here's a very unscientific comparison of flash portraits taken 4 different ways.

    The setup:

    Nikon D80 on tripod
    Lens: Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8 (not the most flattering perspective for close...

    Hi Tim,

    The SD1000 has a 2.5" LCD screen and an optical viewfinder. The SD750 has a 3" screen and no optical viewfinder. The SD1000 also has slightly smaller dimensions in width and height....

    I do own both. A Nikon D80 for "serious" stuff, and a Fuji F30 for, well, everything else. Since I seldom leave home without the F30 in my bag, it does get used more often in regular life than the...

    JLV was actually referring to the portrait of the girl, I believe...not the one of the dog.

    Anyway, gng, to answer your question about viewing EXIF data, the link that SpecialK provided is for a...

    If you can't find a used Fuji S6000fd, how about the Canon S5 IS? No, it doesn't do as well as the Fuji at higher ISO's, but as far as the current crop of ultra-zoom cameras go, I prefer its balance...

    Since you mentioned taking photos of the Northern Lights, I would recommend, regardless of the camera that you choose, that you get a tripod. It will be absolutely necessary for something like that,...

    Your needs aren't too specific, so there are quite a variety of cameras to choose from within your budget, assuming that the 200 you have to spend in the U.K. (where I'm assuming you're from) will...

    Don't think so. This is what's included in the box, according to the Canon U.S.A. web site:

    In the Tamrac line I think either the Aero 80 Photo/Laptop Backpack , or the Adventure 9 Photo/Computer Backpack would best suit your needs. They each have a camera/lens compartment on the bottom and...

    You're right, Tim, it doesn't. You have to go to the Z5fd for that, if you want one of the Fuji super-slims.

    Assuming you're in a part of the world where you can get the camera (it isn't available in North America as far as I know), it's got decent image quality but not in the same league as the F30. The...

    If you want to take shots indoors (especially of people who aren't completely still) without flash, I think the F40fd is your best bet right now. I have the F30 which is arguably even better in those...

    Can you upload or post some links to samples for us to see? With EXIF data intact? Don't do any software alterations to them, except for resizing.

    Based on the samples from reviews of both the F40fd and F30 on this site, I'd say that the F40fd is not quite the high ISO performer that the F30 is, but it's pretty close. The F30 seems to retain a...

    There's nothing wrong with the SD800 IS. It's still a current camera as far as I know and the only thing outdated with it is that it doesn't have as many megapixels as some of the newer releases from...

    Yes. Press the MENU button, go into the Setup menu, select "AF Illuminator" and change it to "off".
