    Photography and iPads

    Has or does anyone use an iPad when out shooting? I know editing and such on an iPad isnt the greatest of ideas seeing as though its not a colour management enabled device, but what about previewing the image on an iPad? I dont have one, but I'm pretty sure the WiFi on the iPad can be used as...

    Ever wonder......

    Why DigitalRev has so much money for their reviews and is able to destroy whatever product at will for destruction testing? It's because they charge 30% more than any other retailer for the same product! But don't worry...

    ND and Grad ND Filter Use

    Ok so I picked up a 2 stop Grad ND filter the other day. Went out into the mountains and tried to use it for the first time. After the first few shots I realized I have a few questions on its use. When taking a shot without it the camera meters and boom - the shot it taken. When using the...

    Two images. Your thoughts?

    I was out on Vacation last week. These two shots are my favourite from the bunch I took. The owl in the first shot (A great grey owl) flew right over my head and landed in a tree about 7 feet to my left. Grabbed the camera and started shooting. No resistance from the owl at all. He didnt...

    To all those experienced photographers out there, I've got a question that has me stumped. I picked up a Circular Polarized Filter the other day (Hoya) and have noticed a dramatic increase in the amount of time it takes for the camera to Autofocus. With the filter off I can usually autofocus...
