Re: Scanner advice? Considering NIKON Super COOLSCAN 5000 ED

From what I've read it is a great scanner, I have the 4000ED which preceded it and the quality of the scans is excellent. What follows are my thoughts on the 4000ED; as I haven't used the 5000ED.

Re: macro lenses

Another vote for the Canon 100mm USM Macro here.

To choose between the two lenses you've listed, you really need to work out what type of things you wish to shoot.

If you can get really close...

Re: An annual TE exhibition.

Thanks Kev! My vote would be for Landscapes. What odds ;)

Might be worth starting a new thread for this though, not sure how many are reading the replies...

Re: An annual TE exhibition.

An interesting idea. Did you have any particular theme in mind?

Re: Help to decide buying Aspherical lens

The Tamron's still worth considering, but I would strongly recommend testing it yourself before buying one!

All it means is that the particular lens contains one or more <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspherical_lens">aspherical elements</a>.

Re: DxO Mark - new way to compare camera quality

It's very interesting, but unfortunately I don't think it's 100% useful.

As far as I can tell they don't seem to have any measure of how much detail the sensor/system is capable of rendering; i.e....

Re: Compact cameras

I don't think any of the major manufacturers has any particularly bad models; there are some which are better than others, but that's really about it.

I'd tend to avoid the smaller names in...

Re: Monitors/Displays - poll

You'll be in danger of becoming retro-chic soon if you keep that up Greg ;)

Re: Monitors/Displays - poll

Thanks for that Peter. I was vaguely looking at the Dell 2008WFP, but being wide gamut could be a problem, since I tend to use sRGB. It doesn't seem to calibrate well to sRGB according to the...

I'm in the market for a new LCD, as the backlight is starting to get dim on my current one. My primary use is (perhaps predictably) photo editing. I don't play games, and I rarely watch video. I'm...

Re: Canon 40D

My point is that regardless of the results the comparison makes no sense.

If you buy a Ferrari 595, of course it'll go faster than a Ford Focus. If you want a Ferrari, and can afford the Ferrari,...

Re: Canon 40D

That's an unfair comparison.

The D3 is a full-frame camera, whilst the other two are APS-C cameras. The real kicker is the price though, the 40D is Ģ577 whilst the D3 is a stratospheric Ģ2628.

Your extremely well reasoned and deeply insightful technical critique leaves me with no alternative but to bow at your feet, and concede defeat.

My point is that as soon as Google indexes the images your "protection" doesn't work. I'd hazard that most image thieves come via Google anyway.

About the only thing your "protection" would...
