    The "Official" Canon R5, R6, and Sony A7s III thread

    It seems like after the first firmware update, most of the talk about overheating issues went away. I suppose it also helps that the C70 was released so the people that are strictly video now have an RF mount body that they can use. At least the EOSHD guy has shut up with his class action...

    Pixel 4a thoughts?

    I picked one up yesterday. I was hoping my old phone would hold out a few more weeks until the 5G version came out, but it bricked itself yesterday morning. So far it seems pretty snappy. Of course I'm also coming from an original Pixel XL so I'm sure anything is going to be an upgrade. The...

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    My computer at my studio. It's an i5 8400 and a Radeon RX 580. I started with the latest drivers and kept downloading the next oldest ones until DaVinci Resolve would finally recognize I had a card that supports OpenCL.

    Gamers are ditching Radeon graphics cards over driver issues

    I'm still using Radeon drivers from September 2018 on one system because Devinci Resolve doesn't recognize my card for OpenCL processing with anything newer.

    Been out of the game for a while and have a few upgrade questions

    Hey, so I'm finally upgrading my editing PC which is a i7 2600k. It's pretty much only going to be used for Photoshop and Lightroom. That said, I'm looking at either the i5 8400 or i7 8700 non-k. I'm really not interested in overclocking this one. But going to 6 cores will be nice. Does...

    Photobomb Horse Owner Demands Share Of Selfie Prize

    The owner if the photo is indeed the photographer and you're also correct that the subject is entitled to make a claim as well. Any time you take pictures with something recognizable in the background and use it for anything besides personal use, the photographer needs to get a signed property...

    Ask a photo instructor any photography question you want about photography/lighting

    The Median filter worked pretty basically left me with a few corners to clean up, but that's it!

    Ask a photo instructor any photography question you want about photography/lighting

    Yeah, these shots are tough going. For now I've just made a new blank layer and have been brushing over it at about 5% flow and sampling the colors a ton. That doesn't really help me in the shadow areas though. Here's where I'm at on the image I'm currently working on. Needless to say, she's...

    Ask a photo instructor any photography question you want about photography/lighting

    Here's a post processing question for you. Got any good tips for cleaning up footprints and scuff marks quickly when shooting on seamless paper or a really dirty cyc wall? I was shooting at someone else's studio the other day and this is pretty much what I had to work with:

    2016 NSFW - Pictures I Took

    Those look like the models from Nino's shootout. I was tempted to make a roadtrip down there for it, although at the last workshop of his that I went to, I learned way more from the editing part than the lighting/shooting part of it.

    Looking for a new backpack

    I have a couple Pelican 1514's that I use for lighting equipment. But that's kind of why I want the I can wear my camera gear on my back while lugging rolling cases of lighting gear around and maybe save myself a trip hauling gear on location shoots. I looked a some Thinktank...

    Looking for a new backpack

    What brands/models do you guys prefer for backpack style camera bags. I've outgrown my current KATA 3N1-30 sling bag and need something bigger. I need it to be able to hold a gripped body with a 70-200 f/2.8 attached to it as well as a 2nd body and 5-6 lenses (17-40, 24-70, 35, 50, 85, and...

    Safest way to Ship Used Parts

    Windows 10: Your thoughts so far?

    Just upgraded and then did the clean install. Only problem I've experienced is with my Lexar multicard reader. Windows Device Manager says "Invalid device descriptor" and Lexar insists their readers are plug and play so they don't even offer the option of downloading the drivers manually...

    Is Rodenstock UV MC filter quality about the same as Heliopan?

    B+W is German. I typically don't use UV filters at all unless I'm shooting where there might be blowing debris or sand or salt water spray. I pretty much only use ND filters and CPL's when I need them, all B+W.

    Sprint CEO Trash Talks T-Mobile On Twitter

    Algorithm That Removes Reflections In Photos Taken Through Windows

    I remember the Nokia commercial. They were trying to show off the benefits of their new image stabilization but used a DSLR with an image stabilized lens to do it. That algorithm is kinda cool though. I typically try to shoot through and light glass at angles to minimize reflections and where...

    Digi Cam Poll: What Digital Camera do you use?

    Time for an update. Just ordered the Canon 135 f/2L. I've never really been a natural light shooter. I learned in the studio on strobes, so I guess it's time to try something new! Bodies Canon 6D and 7D Zooms: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L vII Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L Canon EF...

    looking for lens recommendations...real estate use

    I agree with the Canon 10-22. I had that before I went full frame and traded it for a 17-40L. I think I used it more than the 17-40 as well. You can get it refurbished from Canon for $520 with a 1 year warranty. I've also seen it used for around $400-450. Here's the Canon refurb...

    A Picture I Took 2015

    I'll take them down, but to me NSFW involves nudity or vulgarity. They fully comply with social media guidelines as well. It's too bad we live in the society that we're in. Seeing as I pretty much only shoot fashion and beauty, I won't be posting much in 2015 then.
