I was there several times in the late 80's. I remember liking Mount Pilatus, the picturesque Chapel Bridge and boat excursions on Lake Luzern. Show us you photos when you get back. Enjoy. :)

Hi Everybody:
Just wanted to clarify a few things from the broadcast that I saw were questions here:

(1) It's is 20.2 megapixels and always has been since I first heard of the camera. That was just a total brain-freeze on my part. I don't have a 24-megapixel version. That was just me misstating one of the specs.
(2) The reason I didn't shoot in Raw was because I don't have any program that is updated to support the unreleased camera. No support yet for Lightroom or Camera Raw, so I had to shoot JPEGs. That being said, I shoot JPEGs for sports either way, but I would have shot some just for example purposes.
(3) I am not sponsored by Canon. I hope to be one day, but at this point, I am not so I bought my Canon gear by selling my Nikon gear -- it was not given to me by Canon. I did get some loaner gear to try out. Nikon let me use loaner gear from time to time, too. So did Sony. Now, if I could just get Hassleblad… ;-)

High five to Forum member Sabaki. I'm with ya. :)

All my best,

-Scott Kelby

Thanks for the clarification. I watched the entire video. For the price, I think this is going to be a great crop DSLR and am going to upgrade my 7D. Your enthusiasm was entertaining ;D

On 16-17. Oct you can watch "Advanced Photoshop Techniques" on CreativeLive  for free. Maybe it will be too advanced, but anyway.

I really love this site. Lots of very informative courses that are free when they are broadcast live (from Seattle). I used to use Safari, but now on my Macbook, it only seems to work when I use Google Chrome. Check out their calendar for upcoming courses. I have 5 or 6 courses scheduled to watch in the next month. I even purchased one of their courses on Lightroom/Photoshop I initially watched for free since I liked it so much. :)

Galileo already did that long ago in Italy.

Einstein's Theory of General Relativity states that there is no real gravity as a force but it is the apparent effect of the warping of space-time by matter.

Yeah, but the real question is how does that all relate to Quantum Mechanics ;D?

Figure that one out and the Nobel prize is all yours 8)

  If you're a fan of entirely predictable 'experiments' perhaps you'd like to drop an object – tennis ball, apple, your camera – from a couple of meters above the ground, and verify the existence of gravity.  Be sure to start a new forum topic to educate all of us on your findings.

I could take a picture of my ass with the A7 and there'd be "X" amount of dynamic range.

I could take a picture of a smiling baby with my 60D...not as much.

Which would you rather BEHOLD?


If you are Miss Minolta I think you should post some examples.

 ;D ;D ;D

Technical Support / Re: Dynamic Range questions..

Maybe a dumb question, but what is/was the DR of film (such as Kodak ASA 100 or similar)? Was it better or worse than today's DSLRs?

Because they're the best ;)

Edit: The only Nikon I've ever owned was a film P&S (before DLSR) and it was run over and crushed when I got out of a cab at my son's graduation. Bad Karma 8)

This subject reminds me of the riddle in the movie, "Roxanne":

"What can you sit on, sleep on, and brush your teeth with?"
a) A chair, a bed, and a toothbrush.

My guess was water 8)

Lenses / Re: Do you keep all your boxes?
« on: September 21, 2014, 11:17:43 PM »
I have purchased used lenses that did not include a box,... and then I purchased a used box.

 ;D ;D ;D
Great idea! I keep all my boxes...maybe I could sell them to those who threw them away. ;)

I think you would miss FF quality...  or FF feel... or that FF what ever. That Je ne se Qui (I failed French in HS)

C'est la vie ;)
