    4 8gb cards or 1 16gb card?

    The other consideration is write speed. I will take a singe 8MB card that writes at 30MB per second over 4 that write at 4MB.

    C&C On these three photos

    The car is a tad underexposed in #2, and I'd like the lighthouse to be a bit further from the car. It looks like it might be growing from the hood. Sort of a CRX unicorn. ;) Fun car though. I miss my Honda more than anything else I have owned.

    New to photography/first purchase...

    I'd like to add a +1 to everything that Bad Andy said. He's pretty much hit the nail right on the head.

    Laptop + Vista + Sleep = reboot

    If you have automatic updates set to a weird time (when your not around) it will fire itself up, install the updates, and then go back to sleep. But if the update requires a restart it will restart and require you to go through the whole ordeal. Mine did it a few nights ago.

    Do You SLR'ers Ever Wish You Had a Good P&S?

    I've never found one that I was really happy with, but I've only had four. I end up getting a new one every year or so, and then selling it when the little event that I bought it for is past because for most of my photos I simply don't like the P&S lack of versatility. I don't mind carrying...

    DVD player software for a PC?

    Windows Media Center has always just worked fine for me, and it's free. As long as you have a decent sound card and good speakers, it should be just fine.

    D90 or D300-Worth the cost?

    Well the big question I have is what is the OP's budget for glass? If you're only rocking the 18-200, then I highly suggest the D90 and spending the other $600 on glass. If the camera is an independent purchase, and you've budgeted to buy some lenses as well, D300s all the way. Either camera...

    First Attempt at HDR

    Just as an honest statement: HDR exists to allow you to increase tonal range in an image where only one image would have left you with underexposed shadows or washed out highlights. The shots you have up look like they were taken during a bright day with very little shadows, so I can't tell what...

    1st attempt at night...C &C please

    That first daytime one looks a little flat. Try going down to F22 and getting everything in focus, or down to F3.5 and select one element to have in focus in the photo. I like the composition though.

    Back Breaker *Please C&C*

    I think that if you get a chance to shoot it again, the zoom and a slightly larger aperture should yield some very nice shots. And as the child of two retired E-8's I can understand that one fully. Thank you for your service.

    Couple sues WalMart over photos

    The registry is probably an example of an overzealous prosecutor rushing things through. The city and WMart are probably going to be handed their a**es in the lawsuits.

    Graphics Tablet Help Please

    More levels of sensitivity, keys with displays (so you know what they do, because each can be assigned unique functions), the scroll ring has four functions, the pen is redesigned (.5" shorter, so it's a bit easier to use), etc... There's a lot of changes.

    Everything said here is the truth. The Intuos 4 Med is perfect.

    Should I upgrade?

    Do you shoot in RAW. Adobe Camera Raw in CS4 is just spectacular.

    Wanna rice out your D300?

    That would be more camera bling, than ricing the D300 out. Now if someone made a rear spoiler for the D300, and a crazy pipe that amplified the shutter sound we could see cameras being riced out left and right.
