    Guide on ISO-speeds, suggestions anyone?

    High-ISO images take more drive space (3200ISO images on my 7D are about 5meg more than ISO 100). The battery life one is interesting. In theory, I can see why that might be the case...

    24-70 Canon Lens VS. the 24-105

    The 'blur' is really a combination of: aperture blades/shape, f-stop, distance to the subject and distance to the background. Increasingly longer focal lengths give a narrower field of view, thus making the background 'farther away' (in most cases). Landscape photographers can shoot a 100mm...

    The Hardest Type of Photography?

    Combat/embedded photojournalist would be my guess. Nothing like being shot at... I've never done that, though. Even with reach, shooting birds has been a pain. I wouldn't have called it hard, but I got to shoot a very scared hawk that was trapped inside a peasant pen from about 15 away. The...

    canon 100mm 2.0 or 100mm 2.8 macro?

    Kenko extension tubes can turn many of the normal telephoto lenses (85mm, 100mm f2, 50mm 1.4) etc into decent macro lenses. The bonus is that you can use them if you ever get a dedicated macro lens. It's kinda a win/win.

    canon 100mm 2.0 or 100mm 2.8 macro?

    Most of the time I use 200 or 300mm lenses for portraits. 100 (thus 160) is often too short! Compression FTW.

    Demo of Color Differences Between Monitors

    Same thing here but I did calibrate both monitors with an eyeOne and they're *still* different. Drives me batty.

    So it induces camera shake?

    For all the people that want high ISO performance (D7000)

    Last time I tried an auto translator, I went into a sushi bar and ordered motor oil. Not going to happen again.

    For all the people that want high ISO performance (D7000)

    Of course it matters. Especially if it says 'I used a boatload of noise reduction from $1000 plugins on all of these' in Italian. :) (I am, for the sake of argument, believing it doesn't.)

    Canon EF 28mm Canon EF 85mm 32gb CF cards

    You may wish to correct the light-blue-on-grey text. I had to highlight it to figure out what it said as it was completely unreadable.
