    Nikon 80-200 2.8 AF-D and SB-800 Flash!

    It's a sad day, but I'm not shooting a lot anymore due to a change of careers, so I'm selling off my gear to fund that change. Sadly my heart isn't in photography right now. Nothing has been used professionally. Prices negotiable. Nikon 80-200 2.8 AF-D - $700 Condition is excellent. No...

    Broken Nikon D90 Lens Mount

    This morning after going to class I went to grab my camera for a small event I had to shoot today for my college's newspaper. While opening up my bag I noticed my lens was separated from my camera. .....Uh oh Basically somehow the mount on my D90 has been ripped off from the body. The screws...

    Charging rate on NiMH batteries.

    So I finally got around to buying a decent battery charger, the Maha C-9000. On the instructions, it states to charge above .3C and but below 1.0C, C being total capacity. I assume this means if you have lets say 2500mAh batteries to charge them at a rate above 750mAh and below a rate of...

    In January, I will be meeting with the editor-in-chief of my local newspaper. I've been given such a rare opportunity though a family friend. They're looking for more staff photographers, for 2010, and I was given this chance. My question is this. How do you prepare a portfolio properly...

    Batteries, Chargers, Recharging Rate

    First of all, yes I did a search and read most of the posts on this topic, however, I have a few questions. Batteries: I'm a hybrid between a casual NiMH battery user and a hardcore battery user. Sometimes I may use a flash all day, and sometimes I may just leave the flash in the bag for a...

    Color Spaces: LR2, CS4

    I'm confused as hell. With my latest blackade with dark colors, I've realized something. How the heck do you setup LR2 and CS4 to work together well. LR2 uses 2 color spaces, as far as I know, one to display in the library, and ProPhotoRBG (MelissaRBG <-garbz?) to actually edit in the develop...

    Blacks/Close to Black Color

    I currently edit on a Macbook Pro, and I notice that whenever I edit photos that have colors near black, I get a ton of artifacts. Is this because the monitor lacks gamut to display all of the colors? Will these artifacts show up in prints? I took this impromptu, so nobody really cares, but...

    Monitor--Dell 2209WA Discontinued?

    Apparently the 2209WA has been temporarily, or permanently discontinued do to the fact that LG cannot keep up with Dell's demand for them. From a Dell rep on the Dell site, recently posted: " If the 2209WA was a popular monitor, and it was with people who use a panel for photo editing, and it...

    Monitor Calibration and RAID

    I just got a new mac for college, and since I'll be editing photos on, I thought it'd be worth the $200 investment to get a monitor calibration system. I've been hearing really different opinions on the Spyder3Pro or the Spyder3Elite or the Eye-one Display1 or 2. What do yous think? After...
