    Depends on how you define calibration. I know what the issue is after doing some search online and looking at the OSX setting. It is the problem with the OSX color profile. It is only supporting one profile type called "color LCD" profile and it pretty much boost all saturation by 20%. So my...

    color of my image looks different in windows and mac

    it is stated in my first and thrid point. "i'm using a macbook" & "Both views using the same macbook." As i was saying, the "print out" that i ordered looks exactly like the view in windows. So any calibration in windows would be meaningless. I dont think it is calibration. It is probably...

    Rechargeable batteries for flash get really really hot

    batteries getting hot is an indication of over-charge.....some charger are stupid and they keep charging your batteries even though they are full.....the excess electrons have no room to fit but turn into heat and dissipated.

    what the heck? is it charging faster?

    technically....the charger is charing the battery at fixed DC voltage & current output no matter what the input voltage is (110 or 220) it shouldnt make any difference on the charging are probably thinking too much

    18-135 vs. 18-200

    18-200 VR is a walkaround is built for that purpose.......quality and walkaround usually dont mix....if quality is needed.....then you're looking for 18-55 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8
