    Why do my images look posterized!

    I shot these today (luckily I wasn't the main photographer). The gradients are all posterized and weird looking. I shot them with a 5DMKII with a 85mm 1.8 in RAW @ 200ISO. Any ideas what is going on here?

    Sigma P&S.....anyone use one???

    I am looking to get my wife a nice p&s. She has a food blog and wants a p&s that she can carry around in her purse, but still be able to take photos with a nice bokeh and dof. I was thinking about just getting her the Canon G12, and then I started looking at the 4/3 cameras a bit....and then...

    A good Nikon>Canon body trade...

    So I recently switched over to Canon and was going to keep my D80 as a back-up, but it just makes more sense (less gear) to have my back-up be a Canon as well. My plan is to try and find someone that would like to trade. Would a 40D be a pretty equal trade for a D80? Thanks

    Is ISO 50 any different than ISO 100?

    So I recently purchased the 5d Mk II, and when you choose the "expanded ISO" setting you can technically go down to "L" or ISO 50. I read a comment on another board that the "expanded ISO" is a gimmick and not to bother with them. Anyone have some insight on this? Thanks (should I post this in...

    Canon 50mm Questions...

    So I was able to get an older copy of the 50mm 2.5 Macro for cheap from a friend and it is nice to have the "macro" ability, but the AF is really slow and LOUD. Will the 50mm 1.8 be much of an upgrade, or will I be disappointed and want the 1.4 or the 1.2....not really in the market right now...

    Taking The Leap! (and need some advice)

    So I have made the decision to switch from Nikon to Canon and step up to full frame...going from a D80 to a 5D MarkII. I have budgeted about 2k for lenses and am trying to decide what to start out with. I shoot baby portraits (all natural lighting) for the $ and travel (street/landscape) for...

    New Lens Decision...(nikon) Prime vs. Zoom

    I am wanting to sell my current lenses and get some better glass. I never use my telephoto lens, and I have been a little disapointed in my Sigma (previously having the 17-55 2.8) I am trying to decide between..... 24-70mm 2.8 or 85mm 1.8 & 20mm 2.8 (and keep my 50mm 1.8)

    Collapsable Reflectors

    I am doing an outdoor graduation shoot next sunday and was planning on getting some collapsable reflectors (so I don't have to borrow from a friend again). I don't have an assistant usually, so I need to get a stand as well. It looks like most of the kits that have a stand included give you a...

    Flash Batteries

    I am currently using the rechargeable energizer NiMH 2200mAh with my SB600. They work pretty good, but I was wondering if I would have a noticeably quicker recycle time with something like Maha 2700mAh. Thanks.

    Buy a D80 now?

    I have had my D80 for over a year now and have really enjoyed it as my first "real" camera. I've got a friend who wants to break into photography and he just asked me if he should buy a D80 as well. I haven't really been keeping up on reviews, but I realize that the technology is ever...
