    Theft of my image it's not strictly speaking the theft since I still have it. It's the unauthorised use of it. I noticed on Saturday that a website in the UK has one of my images on their front page. After some digging, I found it's also on their Facebook gallery and was added in mid July 2010...

    Downloading from a Canon 5D

    Hi all. I've managed to completely forget how to download the RAW images from my 5D. I used to use a card reader but it's since died and I wasn't too concerned - I thought I'd just connect the camera up and drag and drop. When I connect the camera to the pc I can see all the smaller res...

    Should I buy the Canon 100-400 L F4.5-5.6?

    I'm heading to NYC soon and will be paying a visit to B&H. I'm undecided whether to buy the 100-400mm lens for my 5D or should i buy the Canon 2x TC (I believe the TC is L quality) and hook it up with my 70-200mm f2.8 L. I know the TC will slow my lens down but will it slow it to a point...

    Chatting up at the supermarket.

    i was in the supermarket the other day, standing in the queue to pay for my stuff and i noticed the girl in front had single servings of everything. eg 1 pint of milk. 1 can of beans. 1 loaf of bread. 1 packet of biscuits etc. I was a bit bored (hence checking out her shopping) and decided to...

    Took some shots of my new niece - she's only 3 weeks old and already an excellent model! C&C welcome. thanks EDIT - the image seems to have lost some sharpness but the original is pin sharp and looks great. ReEDIT - uploaded the image to my own site to see if it's sharper - looks like it is :)

    Took this image ages ago using my Canon Digital Rebel. I'll get more with my 5D next time i capture one of these!!! I didn't notice the cropped wing when shooting which is annoying but it's still a decent shot. Here's the EXIF data Exposure 8 secs aperture f22 focal length 93mm ISO 100 No...

    New lens on the way!

    I just ordered a Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4 lens for my Canon 5D. I missed the 10-22mm focal range i used to have with the EF-S lens and my 20D so I've decided another lens is required. Hope it's as good as i think it is and i'm looking forward to posting some (hopefully) good images! :thumbup:

    high f number or low iso?

    I've just read on another thread that most lenses are sharpest around their middle range of apertures eg f8 or f11. I agree that this is the case. My 2 L lenses both have a constant aperture of f2.8 and i use them at that end quite a lot. But in order to get the sharpest image from my lenses...

    I was thinking of entering the competition but i know one of the rules is that any entries must never have been submitted or uploaded before. How can i check what I've uploaded? Would it be possible to have something in a users control panel that records their uploaded images? If not, how...

    1 pixel camera....not 1 mega pixel

    Increased minimum ISO

    I've recently returned from a trip to NY for a family wedding and took around 900 shots in 8days. I'm a bit disappointed in some of them though. It's not the camera - it's me!! Check the image on the front of my website to see an image when the camera is set on a marble handrail in Grand...
