    • Let me really go in another direction...have you thought about mirrorless cameras?

    • Hello Dick,

      No, I don´t. In fact I was thinking in purchase a Canon EOS 70D but last week I went to a camera store and I saw a big discount in a Canon EOS 6D (1.699 € along with a STM EF 40mm F/2,8 lens), and this offer made me think in take the step to move to a full frame camera.

      Cheers,

      Ana

    • Anna do you have a full frame dslr now?

    • November 21, 2014 8:44 PM CET
    • Hello,

      I´m thinking in purchase a new camera and I´d like to choose between a Canon 70D or a Canon 6D, but first I´d like you to advise me about what kind of system could be better. I´ve read in blogs and other webpages that the main difference is in the lenses costs, despite that full frame cameras are quite better than cropped frame DSLR, probably I could improve my DSLR by purchasing wide-angle lens in order to increase image range and get better results or almost the same results.

      Your comments and suggestions are very welcome.

      Cheers,

      Anna

    • Knowing how to calibrate my monitor is critical, specially if I want accurate and predictable photographic prints.

       

      So, any suggestion? I´ve got an iMac.

       

      Thank you!

    • Why eneloop?
      Eneloop batteries: Eneloop batteries are the world's best Low Self Discharge (LSD) batteries. LSD batteries, batteries do not run nearly empty of itself
      Normal NiMh batteries, such as the Sanyo 2700 mah but other 2700 mah battery, after two weeks on the shelf about 30% of their cargo lost. They then contain only about 1900 mah.Als these batteries are older, these self-discharge is even greater.
      An eneloop (2050 mah) after 2 weeks on the shelf 8% lost, and then contains approximately as much as a normal 2700 mah battery. After a half years is a 2700 mah run virtually empty, while an Eneloop then only about 12% is lost.

      Eneloops are suitable in devices that require a lot of power, such as flash. This is because eneloop batteries can hold their charge well, see for example the graph http://www.quietpc.com/eneloop. Eneloop batteries last about 4 times longer in a camera than the best Alkaline batteries! This is because Alkaline batteries have high internal resistance, in other words, they can provide very poor much current. Eneloop batteries can be charged normal NiMH charger. (Eneloop batteries are NiMH batteries)

    • Of the unedited photo shoot in RAW I make a backup on my 1st external drive. From a total full sd memory disk I make a backup on my 2nd external drive. The selected and edited photos into Lightroom stored on the hard disk of my laptop and two external drives, which I convert in JPEGs and also puts on two external drives. Of course, the operations in lightroom (backup lightroom) put on the hard drive of my laptop and two external drives. When you've put photos in the cloud, you can only achieve this through the internet, while I can always approach my two hard external drives.

    • What do you use to manage your photo library backup? Any suggestion? External hard drives? Maybe the Cloud?

      Thank you!

    • Recently I made a photo shoot by using a circular polarizing filter. Working with a polarizing filter will require some more settings, more attention before you can take the picture. In fact, at every picture you'll need to turn the filter more or less. But reflections disappear in the windows, the contrast is increased but .... And here I would like to hear your opinion. When editing the pictures I noticed that the picture at use of the polarization filter loses sharpness, especially seen at the additional increase of the photo. Without using the filter, the picture is razor sharp. When using the filter loses This photo blade sharpness. Like your findings

    • Some really basic advice...hold your phone with both hands when shooting. Another suggestion would be small tripod and steady your phone and/or yourself against something. Phones are so light that they move around very easily, unlike a DSLR that you can get your hands around and steady against your body.

    • Well Juan, I think that It's a question of talent. Point of view, composition, scene...are all related to own people capabilities. Software or any other kind of "help" do not let you become a better photographer...

    • Hi Michel, thank you for your quick response!! And for your advice!!

    • October 1, 2014 6:58 PM CEST
    • I use scan disk and Lexar Pro. The read and write speed is important to me. I shoot in RAW and if I make several shots consecutively, I want this enabled. Quickly on my SD card

    • October 1, 2014 5:42 PM CEST
    • Is there any memory card that could be better than another when we travel with our cameras? I use Sandisk but probably I´m sure that there are several options to this brand. I´ve heard about Lexar or Kingston.

      Please, Could you provide me some alternatives? 

      Thank you,

    • What I irritate me, and hence my contention is: The UV filter protects the lens ??
      My view on this is the LENS CAP protects the lens. You often hear the argument that the UV filter protects your camera lens. From what? When you punch the lens, the UV filter break, but what's the harm which the shards but also cause splinters on the lens surface? These can be removed through a lens brush. But then you throw away the lens brush. The assertion that the UV filter protects the lens, is a pure and bad sales pitch. To protect the camera lens is the lens cap. The UV filter is an additional plane-parallel lens for your camera lens on which dust and / or fingerprints may come. Nothing more, nothing less. I have in all the years that I photograph never used a UV filter. What is your opinion?

    • Michel thank you for checking out the post and responding to what I pointed out and what you personally do.

      External storage will be another blog post that has it's own important issues and very important especially when you are shooting many images.

      Thank you again for your comments!

    • September 30, 2014 7:45 PM CEST
    • Thank you Dick for the 8 way tips.
      1) Indeed, when the camera shows a certain number of pictures to store, but I'm almost certain to make more pictures I take no risk and replace my SD card.
      2) When my SD card is full, I make a copy of the full SD card on my external drive and format the SD card into my camera. In addition to the copy of the SD card, I always make a copy of the full photoshoot on another external drive.
      3) -
      4) Good tip!
      5) In my storage case for SD cards: blank cards left and the completed cards right.
      6) Always.

      1. Get in the habit of not filling the card completely with images - In other words, when you are shooting and the counter is indicating that you have only 30 images left on your card, consider changing out the card with a fresh one. If you overshoot the card and your camera tries to fit in the last few shots onto your card it can corrupt those images and may lead to card lockup.

       

      2.  When you are ready to use your card again, instead  of choosing to “Delete All Images” within the menu on your card, choose to “Format” the card - When you format your card you are starting over, erasing all your images, making sure the card’s system structure is wiped clean and is in sync with the camera you are presently using.

       

      3.  Only shoot with your card in the camera you are shooting with - After you have formatted your card (see Tip #2) you don’t want to remove the card and use in another camera body. When you do that you risk the chance of corrupting the card because of the two different camera file systems. You can do this, not saying it’s impossible to do or won’t work, but by doing it you are taking more risk with your cards. For example, I will format all my cards on my Canon 5D Mark III. If I decide to shoot with a different body I will put a fresh card into the camera and do a quick format so that the file systems match since my original format was done with the first body I was using.

       

      4.  Try not to delete images from your camera as you are shooting - This is what is called “back fill” and I will try and explain. As you hold the shutter button down you are shooting a succession of images 1,2,3,4,5. Each image you shoot will be a different size depending on data recorded. If you decide that you want to delete image #4 and immediately take another shot your memory will “back fill” the next image to fill the space that image #4 was. If this new image is bigger it will try and fill the rest of the data from where you last left off or in this case the image you deleted which was #4. Our cameras being computers understand what they have to do and can piece all this information together. This is all well and good but if your card is corrupted it’s harder to recover the data because of “back filling”…make sense?

       

      5.  Plan to have a system to know what cards have already been used on the day you are shooting - When I shoot images onto my cards I will store it in my CF card holder with the label side facing out. This is a quick reminder that the card has already been used. There are many small cases on the market to hold your CF and SD cards so finding one to suit your needs will be easy.

       

        

       6.  Turn off the power of your camera before removing your card - Let me repeat this…Always turn off the power to your camera before removing your card. Also, if your camera is recording images to the card (usually apparent by the LED light lit up on the back of the camera) do not remove the card until that light is off.

       

       7.   If you store the cards in your pants or shirt pocket make sure to keep them in the plastic storage cases - While compact flash cards feel secure in your pockets, what can destroy and corrupt them is the dirt and lint in your pocket that gets inside the multipin sockets.

       8.   Make sure your batteries on your camera do not fail when you are shooting - If your battery signal is flashing low power it’s time to get a fresh battery or batteries and replace. If you don’t, you run the risk of having the battery die as you are recording images to your card card. Not only will you lose those images but you also run the high risk of causing card errors. So, make sure to keep an eye on your camera battery and replace it before it goes completely dead.

       

       If you are from the old school before digital came into view you shot roll film or you may have even shot sheet film like myself. How did you treat your film...like it was irreplaceable? Treat your cards like they are rolls of film because in essence that’s what they are. If you have shot 1000 images in the Serengeti and you loose it…guess what…you just lost 1000 images.

       

      The 8 tips I just shared with you are very basic but extremely important to follow. If you develop good habits in dealing with your CF/SD cards you should not have any problems.

    • Do you use your greycard in a photo shoot? An 18% greycard gives a neutral white balance, which provides a good basis when editing photo's in example Adode's Lightroom.

    • I own a Nikon camera, a Sigma zoom wide-angle lens, a Tamron zoom telephoto lens, a Nikon macro lens, an external Nikon SB 910 flash and various accessories, in short, my photo gear. If I'm going to do a photo shoot I like to have as much stuff with me, you never know what you will encounter and must prepare for anything. For carrying my photo gear I use my LOWEPRO Stealth Reporter D400 AW where everything can be stored. Which shoulder bag / backpack do you use?
