I'm in the same boat with my toddler... On top of exposure, focus is a problem indoors. Some recomednations:
1) Try continous shooting mode. There will be lots of throw-aways, but you can get a gem once in awhile
2) diffuse the onboard flash with something, anything, even paper-towel (I use an...
I feel like pulling one of those Crocodile Dundee lines, and saying "that's not snow ... this is snow!"... and then I would prove to you how I live on Planet Hoth. Alas, I don't have any pics.
Seriously...my hand were in pain after being exposed for two minutes to the cold in Montreal last night.
I have the entry-level Macbook (not Pro) from 2008 and it runs Aperture just fine along with NIK plug-ins.
I originally only had 1GB of Ram, but since buying RAM and upgrading to 4GB it works perfectly fine. I can even run other programs in the background.
Thanks. That's precisely what I was looking for. Your pics look great! Was it faster to work with than Aperture? By a longshot?
Overall, do you think it is a worthwhile purchase for someone who already has Aperture?
I believe that it was just released today, and can be purchased for $19 at the Mac App store. I know that the Android/iOS versions already have glowing reviews. So, I wanted to open a forum to hear from others regarding their experience with the desktop version.
Do you see yourself using it...
I used to use Photoshop but think it's overkill for my needs. I'm more than happy with the usability and simplicity of Aperture.
I apologize if your heart is set on Photoshop, but I wanted to chime in that there are other (simpler) alternatives out there.
I couldn't find a book for the G3, but you should get similar information from this book:
... but, as has been mentioned, the issue has less to do with the body...
I agree... the kit lens is underrated and under-appreciated. I have the Oly 14-42.
Underrated in the sense that it still takes great pics. and under-appreciated in the sense that it offers a lot (from wide to a very short telephoto).
I also have a toddler, and I find that I use the kit...
In terns of picture quality, I love my 14-42. But, it is very slow... so I only use it outdoors in good light. It's great for when I take my daughter to the playground in the summer as a fast lens is not crucial with so much light, and a compact zoom really comes in handy.
I have dabbled a bit with manual lenses but have gone away rather disappointed. Maybe it's the manual lenses I have, maybe it's the type of photography...
A case in point: over the holidays I used a Canon 50mm/1.8 to shoot a Christmas Eve party. I used a VF-2 for more accurate MF.
Thanks everyone for your help. Obviously I should get a mini-DVI to DVI adapter. The Apple one is much, much, more expensive than 3rd party ones. So, does anyone have any bad experiences with 3rd party adapters of this kind?
I have a Macbook from 2008 that has a mini-DVI output for video.
I am on the verge of buying a Dell Ultrasharp monitor that supports Displayport, DVI, VGA and USB connections. It does not have an HDMI input.
From what I understand, my Mac will not connect to an external monitor via USB. And I...
An interesting article that details how someone setup a year-long exposure of Toronto's skyline.
The photo itself is quite nice.

Has anyone else used a step-up ring on a Panny 20mm? I'm scared of damaging the camera, so I'd like to get more opinions before I order one.
A related question: if the front element of the Panny 20mm moves back and forward, what then is the point of it having threads to attach filters if the...
My apologies if this didn't come across clearly the forst time, but regardless of my feelings for the merit of the shot itself (and I do think it is beautiful), I am actually more intrigued by the fact that such an odd part of the photograph is in focus, as was originally pointed out before me...
