Look, I'm not one threatening class action lawsuits, etc. But I did follow all necessary steps to install Vista by the book and I don't care what anybody says, Vista does not work out of the box with an ATI AGP card and a dual core Athlon. I'm perfectly competent. You can bury your head in the...
I know I feel the same way. I'm sick of hearing people defending nVidia saying "well if you don't have SLI 8800s then you shouldn't be running vista OMFGZORS!!!!" etc etc. The reality is that dual core X2 systems with a good AGP card are more than adequate to run Vista, and nVidia screwed all of...
Here's a little bump from a furious nVidia user too.
To all who boo hoo about nF3 users not upgrading to Vista:
Are you fucking serious? People run XP with hardware a gen or two old all the time, it's not like some big travesty. The idea that my dual core system with a pretty fast AGP card...
Amazing, you are running nVidia cards which are well known to work.
It's the fact that non-nVidia cards (specifically ATI... nVidia's main competition) are completely crippled. Coincidence? I doubt it. Sure, it's not in their best interest to support the competition, but is it worth it to...
Same printer, same problem. I got that message a bit ago too.
Its okay by me though, HP has come out with new printers and this guy is fairly old for a printer... I can invest in a new printer. Annoying that there is no support, but mine really is quite old.
Yes. I got a Vista Business license through the MSDNAA program and paid $9 for a 64bit DVD from the website regularly listed on product packaging:
The list goes on and on. Try googling: nVidia vista code 43
See what comes up.
Wow, nice; way to be an asshat.
Yes, I have.
Beta 1 drivers from 2005. Whoop de fucking do. They don't work. They wont work. If nVidia is going to keep pimping the board as vista ready they better get some drivers for it.
No need for chipset drivers huh?
Care to explain why my nForce3 system is completely broken and my X800 can't start because the boxed chipset drivers are horrible? I can't even run Aero Glass because of nVidia's complacency and it's really getting old fast...
Ive been running Vista Business from the MSDNAA program for a few days now.
It's been a champ. The only gripe I have is that nVidia has been completely sucking ass about drivers and my whole system crawls because the chipset drivers that ship with Vista are very flawed and AGP acceleration is...
90% of the time you are going to want to bounce your flash. This is the most noticable change from an external flash, and it really makes flash pictures look great.
That said, it takes alot of power to bounce. I use a 430EX (I'm holding it right now, actually) because I like the lower weight...
I'm not going to get into wild speculation, etc. I think holiday time off is all well and good and definitely important, but I will say this.
I remember when [H] did quite a few reviews. Then Kyle vs. Infinium Labs thing happened. I understand why everything trickeled down. I also remeber...
Those are extremely good shots. If I may ask, how did you get sideline passes to college games? Do you work for a news organization, are you a stringer, or maybe a booster...?
Just wondering because I am trying to do the same myself.
Killer shots by the way. I think they all look great...
Think about all of the "safety" and impact-resistant stuff that is made in this modern age with plastics... plastic is exceptionally resilient to bumps, etc. While it may creak a bit and deteriorate over extremes (time, temps, chemicals, etc) it is pretty freaking awesome for it's weight and price.
As in, you would like a greyish water reflection with sky detail? What would you change about it?
I kinda wanted the water "surface" to disappear (hence the high-key look to the image) to isolate the alligator.
Thank you! It's really the digic II image pipeline that lets canon make these CMOS sensor shine... and the 350D has the same digic II as the 20D, 5D, etc.
Ansel Adams didn't exactly have a 1Ds Mark II, but he still did fine with plain old black and white.
Here's why: because money is not an issue, need is.... keeping the 350D would be nicer in the long run.
Sure people like to bash it because it uses and color LCD to change ISO etc, not the viewfinder and not a monochrome LCD. But here's the kicker. At all times, I know where my ISO is, I know...
The 350D is awsome because of its size and weight, and the fact that 1.6x crop makes long lenses seem longer :p
There is no way I would get rid of it. Besides the 10-22 is one awesome wide angle by itself, and worth keeping the 350D over.
I take photos for a newspaper with the 350D and they...
Primes, for any given aperture equaling a zoom, typically have better color, better sharpness (corner to corner), less vignetting, less CA, less distortion, and better contrast.
Not to mention they are usually faster and lighter.
Primes are awesome if you dont mind using your feet.
In order of how they will happen:
Canon EF 70-200 F/2.8L
Canon EF 300 F/2.8L
Canon 1D Mark II N (unless 20D's successor is out and comparable by then)
Canon 580EX flash
Canon EF-S 10-22
Not cheap, but they gotta happen.
Because 100% uptime is impossible on a forum with 50,000 users of which 1000s are often active at any given time.
Seriously, the load on these servers is huge and we should be thankful they are as reliable as they are.
The only brand I am loyal to is Canon. Since I have inested into the Canon EF lens system, I don't really have another option.
Besides that, if I am spending X dollars and there products Y and Z, I will buy whichever product does what I want more exactly... regardless of brand.
