There are several practical advantages of owning f/2.8 lenses. Here, Will Cheung tries out two Tamron fast aperture lenses.
I did try a wider aperture on a couple, but the light wasn't great and even with the ISO kicked up a bit it was still giving me quite low shutter speeds for hand holding (and lets just say I don't have a rock-steady hand holding technique at the best of times ... probably all the coffee!).

The crop is from a different photo, but taken at the same time i.e under the same lighting conditions. The first photo, which was only posted by accident (hands full of thimbs), isn't affected to the same degree, the lack of cosistency is part of the problem and not something I've seen on crops from any compact camera I've used with similar sized sensors. It's auto doing something, I'm just not...

Still not quite sure what a 'recognition program' is but can heartily endorse Canvas4Life - they've just sent me a free sample canvas and the construction is very good indeed - decent frame, stretchers included (little wedge shaped pegs used to restretch the canvas when it gets a bit floppy) and excellent print quality and materials. The image itself is a close up of a bunch of roses and is ho...

I was having this same problem and I FINALLY figured it out. Hope it's the same with yours. I was attempting to print 8.5 x 11 image on 8.5 x 11 paper. Simple enough right? But it kept printing at 8.5 x 10.25 or something like that. Scale to fit media was NOT selected, it was at 100%. What I did was click on Page Setup, and select 8.5 x 11 from the drop box. So simple, just didn't see the Page ...

Try using the crop tool. Set the dimensions to the size you require at resolution to 200 pixels per inch: So for A4: 21 cm x 29.7cm @ 200 ppi If the aspect ratio of the original image is different to the A4 crop aspect ratio you will have to lose part of the image in the crop

Looking forward to IS on my new lenses too! My dear departed mother (a very good photographer) always used to say to me, when I was a boy, that I got over-excited when a camera was in my hands. Hmmm.... no change there then! ;o(

If Im not to late then the Canon 400mm f5.6L is the one I use..... its sharper than the 100-400 L IS If money is no object then hire a 300mm 2.8 L IS and a 1.4 convertor A couple of shots from the 400mm f5.6 L from me.......But Im never gonna challenge Neil (javam) on his airshow shots...He knows his stuff and could take a killer pic with a compact!!

Similar things have already happened with 'boudoir' shots on stock sites being used for the front page of porn websites - some photos are stolen, some are paid for and used legitimately (even if the model is not happy about it).

I always undedrstood 'reach' to mean the size of the subject (in this case the bird) projected on the recording medium - after image capture is it all about cropping and magnification. he was talking about the 'reach' of the lens, not the quality of the final image, I can understand where you are coming from but the idea of talking about 'lens equivalence' without including consideration o...
