    Digital Photography ISO

    The essential elements of photography like exposure, have not changed in over 100 years. You can pick up a photography book from 70s, read up on shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, go pick up a digital camera, put it in manual, and start shooting successfully, employing that knowledge. You can...

    Digital Photography ISO

    Once again, your obfuscating the issue. ISO is one of three controls of exposure. The OP has been a film shooter for years and clearly understands how to use ISO with regard to film, but is hitting a stumbling block with digital, by reading overly complex, technical focused stuff. You did...

    I'm not going to engage with you on this because you are clearly crazy.

    Digital Photography ISO

    I think you guys are obfuscating the issue in an attempt to be overly technically correct. Is digital ISO the same as ASA/ISO for film? Simple, straightforward answer, YES! It's the sensitivity of the sensor. How that sensitivity is achieved from a technical standpoint and how it is the same...

    Hey 6-string. Not originally from SB but I've been here for 9 years now. Palm trees, ocean, mountains.....not a bad place to be.

    why won't film just die already?!

    I think it's unwise to say that digital is far better technology. Film has a quality that digital cannot replicate, not to mention, the process of shooting film forces you to take your time, think a little more, dare I say, take it a little bit more seriously? It's a wonderful, wonderful tool in...

    Night Sky/ Milky Way

    If the negative was black then you massively overexposed.

    Night Sky/ Milky Way

    I use a Canon 5D mk3 with a 17mm lens and generally shoot at ISO 4000, 30 seconds, f/4. It's digital. You can experiment, which is the best way to learn.

    RGB to CMYK, then back to RGB... For the web.

    Sorry, but he couldn't be more wrong. RGB is much wider than CMYK. You should do all editing in RGB, especially since your final output is RGB. People sometimes refer to CMYK numbers when color correcting, especially if the intended output is to print, but that can be done to an RGB file...

    Off-Camera Lighting

    You don't need a hotshoe flash if you have an SU-800 or ST-E2. This route will cost you more than 3 pocket wizards, but you'll have the added benefit of E-TTL and high speed sync. If you plan on sticking with small flashes, this is neat feature. If you plan to use monolights or a pack/head...

    Off-Camera Lighting

    Pocket Wizards do not support any TTL functions. They must be used in full manual. If you decide to go that route, you'll need a transceiver for the camera, and one for each flash. There is a product that will transmit ttl data through radio waves. Radio Popper Cheaper than PWs...

    Photo Forum is Changing rant.

    :thumbup: In the past 6 months, I've typed a handful of responses, and ended up just closing the browser and not submitting. To expound on your point, to make up for the professor being overwhelmed, other students have picked up the slack in doing the teaching....students who don't know...

    Problem with my 50mm lens...

    It could be a lens problem, or a camera problem. You should contact Canon and notify them of your problem. They will guide you from there.

    Rule of Thirds

    Jerry while your information is correct, it's a bit disconcerting that your image examples do not show the thirds lines correctly.

    Curious...

    17mm is 17mm is 17mm, no matter what lens or mount type. The EF-S lens mount is smaller, set further back, taking advantage of the smaller imaging circle needed for the smaller sensor. The lenses are cheaper and lighter. 17mm is still 17mm however.
