    Pricing Details for the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 & Kit (USD)

    I used to record movies on my vcr... on the slow speed so I could get 3 movies on one vhs cassette. I acknowledge that the story is more important than the image quality... but if you can have both... especially if you are housing online so it is there at the better format when your display...

    Pricing Details for the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 & Kit (USD)

    It is on my to do list. My intention is to buy 3 4k 40" monitors/televisions and have them positioned side by side for a real enveloped feel. Right now I have 3 1080p monitors/television and it is fine... but I have most of the lenses I want and I'm happy with my body... so I've been spending...

    Pricing Details for the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 & Kit (USD)

    Actually no... but I grew inpatient waiting for better specs from canon's non 5d 1d line... so I ventured out of the fold and picked up a panasonic gx85... which does a ton of photography well... but not really... but the video... the real reason I picked it up... appears to be more than...

    Same line of thinking... I hate that line about great minds thinking alike because it is so demonstrably false...

    Micron Discontinuing Lexar Removable Storage Retail Business

    My concern would be someonewould buy the name... But not the manufacturing standards. Honestly... As this last batch runs out... I'd wait a few years to buy another lexar branded memory card until we see if the standards are upheld.

    Deal: sE Electronics ProMic Laser DSLR On-Camera Shotgun Microphone $49 (Reg $99)

    So obvious question... How does it compare with the line of rode mics... Micro... Pro... And i forget what the other two are called. Also... Per online videos... I've seen that canon slrs benefit greatly from having a small self contained pre-amp... Do y'all have a suggestion on which pre amp...

    Choice of buying used camera body

    I feel that we are discussing a non-factor... provided it is in perfect working condition... the likelihood of it breaking (with a manufacturer defect) before the warranty expires... seems infinitesimal.

    I want to turn a photo into a 16-bit video game style image

    The project is done... and I probably went with too few colors because it looked like I tried to create a sepia tone... but I was happy enough with it. Also... I saved it as a photoshop file, psd, so I didn't have any of that .jpg compression smoothing that I was complaining about. Thanks...

    I want to turn a photo into a 16-bit video game style image

    I got close... 35 colors seemed to be the sweet spot... But then going from what was on the screen to saving as a jpg, it was smoothed out due to the compression... so I have to figure out how to keep that blocky pixelated look... thanks for your help though...

    I record and edit my daughter's rec league basketball games. I'm moderately competent with Adobe premiere, and I had a bit of inspiration recently. I'm going to edit in the intro of Nba jam and pepper the gameplay with boom shackalakas, he's heating up, and other audio snippets the game is...

    Review: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Receives Highest DXOMark Score Ever

    nailing focus at f1.2 is like catching lightning in a bottle... so I'm ok with a 5% hit rate and post production to remove the chromatic aberration.

    Review: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art Receives Highest DXOMark Score Ever

    I'm jumping into the conversation late... so just point me to a pay number and I'll go and look at what it says... but my question is... is the bokeh magic? I saw one set of real world images, and I was underwhelmed. first, it looked liked they stopped down to at least f2.8, and if it was...
