Photographers Funniest Poses

Friday, August 26th, 2005

Here are some of the photographers’ most funny poses found from the net.. It is really amazing what people will do to capture the perfect shot..



Canon EOS 5D or Canon EOS 20D or Canon EOS 1D MkII N ?

Friday, August 26th, 2005

With the latest three great DSLR cameras from Canon, lots of people are now questioning…
” should I buy Canon EOS 5D or Canon EOS 20D or Canon EOS 1D MkII N ?”

Bob Atkins compared the Canon EOS 5D, Canon EOS 20d and Canon EOS 1D MkII N and wrote:

“Tough choice. The price difference is $2000 which isn’t insignificant! Though the 5D is a breakthrough in pricing for a full frame camera, it’s still out of the reach of many photographers at $3300. For those doing studio work or landscape and editorial shooting, the 5D will be a great camera and I’m sure it will sell very well indeed. For anyone shooting a lot of action, the slightly more expensive ($3999) EOS 1D MkII N, with it’s 8.5fps frame rate and 48/22 JPEG/RAW buffer will still probably be the camera of choice. For penurious amateur wildlife shooters who never have a lens long enough to capture their subjects, the 20D probably remains the camera of choice due to its higher pixel density and significantly lower price. The 1Ds Mk II will still command the attention of those wealthy enough to buy it and who need the durability of a fully weather sealed camera with the ultimate in full frame image quality. However I’d guess that the 5D might well eat into 1Ds MkII sales as the $4700 price difference is more than a lot of people will be able to justify”

Digital RAW Workflow for Beginners

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

Having an efficient work flow is essential for photographers. In the days of film, many of the tasks in the film work flow were handled by the lab. Now, more and more photographers are switching to digital and have to handle many of these tasks themselves. The purpose of this document is to provide a basic digital work flow for working with RAW images that is camera and system independent.

Most modern digital SLR cameras, and some point and shoot models, have the ability to record the RAW data from an exposure, allowing the photographer to process the images as they see fit. This can be a daunting task, especially for those who don’t have a work flow in place to handle the images from the camera. The following steps will take you through the process of setting up your own RAW digital work flow.
