    Using spaces is the pussy way. ;)

    I don't understand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The flash will take care of lighting the forground subject while the shutter speed will set the exposure for the background. In this case, the bg will be a bit underexposed but may well look fine. It boils down to a compromise between exposing the bg properly and having a practicable shutter...

    This is quite normal and lets you use AV mode for fill-flash without the background being underexposed. If the shutter gets to slow, I just switch to manual.

    Layer Masks???

    Cheers Matt, I'm using CS. Pasting works. :thumbup: I also discovered the two buttons at the bottom of the channels - 'Load channel as selection' and 'Save selection as channel'. :blushing: The brush now works and all I had to do was turn the flow up from 1. :blushing: I'm obviously...

    Layer Masks???

    I've just started messing about with masks and I'm not sure I can do what I have in mind. One thing I'd like to do is copy the red channel, for example, edit it and then use it as a mask. I've got no-where near this yet. Is it possible? I'd also like to be able to paint on the mask with...

    Changes?

    My mistake - it was just my connection playing up.

    Changes?

    Hmm... some nice enhancements but is it just me that finds it an awful lot slower now?

    Looking for a camera.

    what ^ he said. As much as I love my film slr's, most of the shots I have on my walls just happen to come from my 3.1MP compact digital. :D /* Apostrophe use intended for clarity - ok Rob? :lol: */

    cricket photos with a 300mm lens

    Just out of interest, how does the AUS $ stack up against the £ - any idea? <edit> Sorry, I just googled it. £1 = $2.33 </edit>

    cricket photos with a 300mm lens

    Your 9MP will not be better than the 6.1MP D70. It may have a few more pixels but that really doesn't matter. What's important is the quality of the pixels. The sensor on the Fuji is about 8 x 6mm - the sensor on the D70 is 23.7 x 15.7mm. This is very significant in terms of quality. At...

    Looking for a camera.

    The s5200 is not a dslr - it's an 'slr style' compact.

    Film Scanners

    For dust and scratches, get a scanner that has Digital ICE. You'll generally have to use the healing brush to some degree though. Some scanners can auto-load a roll of film so you can just feed the end in and let it batch scan the lot while you get on with something else.

    Looking for a camera.

    The 1/1.7 sensor is actually 7.6 x 5.7mm - nowhere near the same league as a dslr. Being 'dslr like' means that it has an electronic viewfinder which shows the the shot as seen through the lens. It does the same as the screen on the back but uses less power and doesn't suffer from glare...
