I’m in awe of photographers that create art equally I’m in awe of the professional fine art printers who actually produce the final product in many cases it’s a real skill/art not to be automated, but one which I suspect is sadly in decline. I absolutely love print I wish I had a fraction of their skills. I’ve always printed since I was about nine or ten years old and test strips are simply a fact of life, a necessary and enjoyable step in the process.

Wouldn't worry about it, prices just going up in time to give you 'great' money off offers before Christmas

Good news, well done. That sickening feeling in the pit of your stomach when data files get lost/corrupted is horrible.

So does it have IS?

i would like to see corel put more work into paintshop.
it´s good enough for some user but has shortcomings that prevents it from being a replacement for PS.


I'm coming from PSE just curious what are the shortcomings? might save me a bit of time!
Have to admit I really want to go LR at the moment thought

ALWAYS keep the sun to your back......

This.  I'm not sure where it came from

I think it was advice from one of the early German flying aces in WW1 - Oswald Boelcke if memory serves me right.

Naw it was George Peppard in The Blue Max  8)

Probably try PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate, used to use PSP many years ago for other things not photography and have been wondering what it's like now, the price is the same as PSE so that's got to be good!

Canon General / Re: Canon Mail In Rebates; What is your story?
« on: October 03, 2013, 04:04:59 PM »
How bad do you want that rebate?

I think that's the point I'd bet that there are stats somewhere to show that rebate schemes like this, where the onus is one the buyer, have a know average uptake and it's in favour of the seller.

Range between 10x8 to 24x16 from a 500D, love prints always have done. Probably goes way back pre-teens to my dad regularly turning the kitchen into a process and developement room, and the living room into a glazing room! happy days  ;D

Lenses / Re: digitalrev return policy

DigitalRev is garbage - http://www.resellerratings.com/store/DigitalRev_Limited

Generally looks like people buying from the UK are having a very different experience from those in the US

Lenses / Re: What does Blue Dot on a box means?
« on: September 17, 2013, 09:51:25 AM »
I would urge the seller to explain it. If you don't have a good feeling with the answer, return it.

where they put a yellow sticker on it and sell  it on as new  ;D

Always wondered what actually happens to lenses that are returned 'I got x copies before I got a good one' type of thing. Unless it's actually broken what happens I guess is stock just keeps getting rotated round buyers until a happy match if found?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 24-105 f/4 OS on the Way? [CR1]

Have to agree with Neuro.
The current prices of the Canon and its real excellence will be a hard act to follow.

My copy needs a CLA buts is still a go-to lens for 80% of my shooting. What I really need is another for backup.
It is a decent lens, but not really an "excellent" one. It could use way more sharpness across the frame, especially in the corners. I wouldn't use the 24-105L for landscapes.

Sharpness is probably one of the things that Sigma is going to bring to the table.. And lots of it.

$500 for a Canon 24-105?? not for all of us!

If sigma bring more sharpness (and for a walk around I think the Canon 24-105 is fantastic as it is) to the table then it will be a real winner.

I'm wondering why Sigma would go head to head with that lens though? wouldn't the 50 1.4/2 be more obvious? unless they maybe they see it as a near future gap in the market.

They already did their 50 1.4

So no need for Canon to upgrade any of their 50's either then, I think a fair few peps are looking for a new 50 art from Sig no?
