    D7100 raw processing

    I bought a D7100 and finally got around to starting to process some raw files in Photoshop Elements 10. I know that version is too old to process the new .nef files from the 7100's sensor so I downloaded the DNG converter from Adobe. Now I'm able to process the files in ACR without a problem...

    DSLR choice

    I've done a lot of research and looked at a lot of cameras. I've narrowed my choices to the D5100 or the D7000 from Nikon. Most people have told me that the lenses are the major component. Invest more in high quality lenses to get the most out of a body. I'm torn between ordering a 16-85mm...

    D5100 sale price

    I think I narrowed my choice to a Nikon D5100 and their 16-85mm lens to go with it. I thought I'd bypass the kit lens and put the $100 I'm saving toward the better lens. The 16-85 has been backordered for some time now, and since I was in no big rush to get the camera, I waited on the body...

    DSLR vs bridge camera

    I know I'm probably going to get ripped to shreads for even thinking of comparing a bridge camera to a DSLR, but believe it or not, I did just that and was really surprised by the results. I have a Panasonic FZ150, and while I think it is an excellent camera, I've always been of the popular...

    T2i and 15-85 lens

    I've been shooting with a Panasonic FZ150 for the last few months (since it came out) and while I think it's an excellent camera for what it's meant to do, it's not a DSLR. I've been shopping for a good package to compliment that one and I think I've settled on a Canon T2i and a Canon 15-85...

    HDR processing

    I just got PhotoMatix Pro v4 to process HDR images. So far, it's amazing and much better than what I was getting out of PaintShop Prox4. I really like it! I'm still pretty green when it comes to using it so I've been reading a lot from Trey Ratcliff's website and Captain Kimo as well. These...

    A noticeable difference?

    I'm about to upgrade my Panasonic FZ100 to a Nikon D5100. I've done a fair amount of research here and other sites that offer detailed reviews about the camera's performance. The issue of lenses is another subject. I know everyone says kit lenses are a good start, but prime glass offers far...

    Panorama Plus x4

    Has anyone tried to use Panorama Plus x4? I usually use AutoStitch and/or Hugin with decent results. I was referred to this program by a gentleman at the photography shop in town and he told me he'd had great luck with it. I have never heard of it, but for 20 bucks, it might be worth a shot...

    PaintShop Pro X4

    Has anyone had a chance to play with Corel's new release of PaintShop Pro X4? I currently use X3 and it looks like a completely new program with some new features that might be useful. I'm not sure if the new program is improved in the areas I use it mostly for which is noise reduction, HDR...

    Photo printing techniques

    I have a few photos that I'd like to have enlarged into 16x20 prints. They are excellent photos that I took while on vacation and I just don't trust the results I'd get from Walmart or Kinko's printing. I asked around to a few local professional photographers to see what they would suggest or...

    Nosie reduction software

    I'm looking for an editing software that would help with noise reduction. I was referred to Corel's Paintshop Pro X3 Ultimate. I have never heard of this one and was wondering if anyone had ever used it and what your thought were? I'm not looking for anything too complicated or involved...

    Still trying to figure out FZ100...c+c!!

    butterfly by marcm1979, on Flickr I think I've given up on long exposure shots for the time being. The Panasonic FZ100 just does not seem up to the taks of giving me sharp pictures at night. This is macro shot of a butterfly that happened to stop by the yard this afternoon. Never seen one...

    Poor quality in long exposure

    I tried to upload two photos but it tells me I do not have permission to add attachments on this page?? I can email them out if it would help. I bought a Panasonic DMC-FZ100 about a month ago to replace an old point and shoot. I fully realize that this is not a dslr camera, but it has a whole...

    Long Exposure

    I will never stake claim to being the world's best photographer, but I have apparently been bitten by the photography bug. I'm a long time artist (drawing, woodworking/woodturning among different mediums I've worked with) who bought a new Panasonic DMC-FZ100 after a few months of research as an...
