Quote: You'd only need 10Mpixel for bigger printouts or to provide room to crop afterwards - why do you need 10M+

My current phone does 8M but recommends using a 6M setting.

OK - I go with 8MP.
What is the name of your mobile phone & mode number.
I am going to consider to purchase if it is small or pocket size.
Thanks

Is there any small mobile phone with a proper good camera?
I have noticed many people who have smart phones, using them for FB or playing games.
I am interesting in buying a small mobile phone with good camera (10mp or higher) just for call and take a good picture.
I am not interested in a big mobile phone that does not stay in my pocket.
I wonder if you know any?
Thanks

How to put an image in Twitter?

"They'd rather take pictures than help!! "

Many Malaysians would rather take pictures of an accident than help the victims – an insensitive behaviour that has been caught on film by director and producer Jason Lim.

How about you? Have you ever been in this kind of sticking situation?

What do I need to do legally?
Recently I noticed that two of my images were taken without my permission (stolen) in two different online magazines.

1- Lost Brain

Buddhist News
which later on, I wrote a comment under the page for them.

2- Roger Says: Freedom For Palestine

Socialist Worker
I wrote to them and asked them either delete my image or pay for it. So far they ignore my email completely.

A photographer friend told me, I needed to take them to the court. Unfortunately it is simple to say, but without any cash, and not having enough info about the court action, I am not able to pursue it.
I wonder if you know any other way?
Thanks













So far they did not bother to answer me.

Photography Quotation
"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst".
(Henri Cartier-Bresson)

"Don't set out to get something specific. Follow your nose, it may surprise you." - John Maloof

"Great photography is always on the edge of failure." - Garry Winogrand

"Street photography is like making cheese. It takes a hell of a lot of milk to make a small amount of cheese just like it takes a hell of a lot of photos to get a good one." - Robert Gillis

"Once the amateur's naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. Every professional should remain always in his heart an amateur." -- Alfred Eisenstaedt

"Composition must be one of our constant preoccupations, but at the moment of shooting it can stem only from our intuition, for we are out to capture the fugitive moment, and all the interrelationships involved are on the move." - Henri Cartier-Bresson

"If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough." - Robert Capa (Hungarian Photo Journalist)

"If you want it you get nothing, just be receptive and it happens" - Henri Cartier-Bresson

"Sometimes the simplest pictures are the hardest to get..." Neil Leifer (NYC Photographer)

“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” Bruce Gilden, New York Street Photographer

"If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, then it’s a street photograph. You feel like you’re really there.” Bruce Gilden

"Sometimes life is like street photography, 99% failure. But that 1% is good enough reason why it should continue to go on"... Nats Manuel

"All a photographer has to do, is find and catch the story-telling moment." Alfred Eisenstaedt

"Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of 'psst' that you usually can't even hear because you're in such a rush to or from something important you've tried to engineer." - David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” - Elliott Erwitt

"You don't take a photograph, you make it."
- Ansel Adams

"You have to live and life will give you pictures." - Henri Cartier-Bresson


Light makes photography.
Embrace light.
Admire it.
Love it.
But above all, know light.
Know it for all you are worth,
and you will know the key to photography.
- George Eastman, founder of the Eastman Kodak Company

What are the differences among Ultima, Ultima Pro, I Pro, Ultra, etc memory cards?
I try to find out which card is suitable for my digital camera. Unfortunately I could not find much info despite searching the internet.
Perhaps you are able to tell me more about them.
I am little bit confused about the word of describing these memory card, which I used BOLD for them, i.e. Ultima, Ultima Pro, I Pro, Ultra, etc ....
Of course based on these words, the prices are fluctuated.
Initially I try to purchase an Integral Ultima SDHC Class 10 Memory Card, 32GB which cost me around £60.00. [32GB SDHC Card UltimaPro CL10 ]
Then I noticed that there are other cards similar to this:
- 32GB Integral Compact Flash UltimaPro 300X Memory Card
- 32GB Integral Compact Flash I Pro 100X Memory Card
- 32GB SanDisk Ultra SDHC class 10 Memory Card
- 32GB Kingston SDHC Class 10 Flash Card
I would appreciate your help in this matter.
Thanks

A900 - Like No Others!

Quote: After 6 LONG Years WAITING, at last Sony produced a smaller Full Frame camera under the name Alpha A7 & Alpha A7R with small body and small hand grip.
Unfortunately most of the time you're going to be holding the lens - not the camera.

Yes, you are right.

A900 - Like No Others!
After 6 LONG Years WAITING, at last Sony produced a smaller Full Frame camera under the name Alpha A7 & Alpha A7R with small body and small hand grip.
During this long period, all of time I was waiting for this day.
I remember I met Eric Billette , the Sony Europe representative at 'Focus on Imaging 2009' in NEC Birmingham and told about my concern.
Later on I met DIME VIP People at Sony World Photography Awards gala on 19th January 2010 and again I told them about my disappointment.
Now, Sony produced Alpha A7 & Alpha A7R which I am going to hold them at last.
During this long period, I was using my dear girlfriend Minolta Dynax 7 as well my other mistress, a Pentax compact digital camera for my observation of my surroundings.

Horney MPs
Lawmakers in the British Parliament attempted to visit pornographic websites nearly 300,000 times over the past 12 months, a number that averages more than 800 requests each day, according to internal government data.

The data includes “attempts to access websites categorized as pornography” by computers within parliament, encompassing devices linked to the parliamentary internet network.

Attempted visits by 1,300 British MPs, their staff, and other government employees were included. The figures were released by IT officials at the Palace in Westminster in response to a freedom of information request from The Huffington Post UK website.

Officials claimed the statistics were inflated by pop-up advertisements, auto-refresh and other features that did not reflect the true number. They were also investigating an alarming variance between monthly totals, with 114,844 visits in November 2012 and a mere 15 the following February.

“We do not consider the data to provide an accurate representation of the number of purposeful requests made by network users due to the variety of ways in which websites can be designed to act, react and interact and due to the potential operation of any third party software,” a spokeswoman for the House of Commons told The Guardian, adding that pornographic websites “may nevertheless be recorded in this dataset depending on website design.”

Earlier this year, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced that internet service providers (ISPs) would soon begin automatically censoring pornographic websites to “protect children and their innocence.” British ISPs agreed to institute a ban that will impact 95 percent of web users “by the end of the year,” Cameron said. He has stated that viewing pornography is “corroding childhood” and “distorting” a child’s view of relationships.

Critics have worried that the ban, which ISPs will turn on by default, will also include violent web pages and others sites not widely accepted by a general audience. Jimmy Wales, one of Cameron’s advisers and a co-founder of Wikipedia, said the government’s intentions were “absolutely ridiculous.”

Looking to buy an external hard drive, any recommendations?
I have a similar question like AnaKa.

After so many years photography, and having more than 5000 images in digital formats, I have reached to this conclusion that I need to get rid of my two small external storage hard drives, and go for a bigger one in cpacity, i.e. 2TB.
I read few articles and reviews in few websites, and still I am not sure which one is more reliable and cost effective. The most recent article I read was belong to PC Advisor.
I do not want to pay more than £200 in price.
I would like to know which one do you have for PC, the reasons behind buying it, and whether you are happy and satisfied with it's performance. Did the external HD had any problems in the past or does it work smoothly like the first day you bought.
I would appreciate your assistant in this matter.

Quote: Go to your portfolio page and select 'more' from the options menu. Then follow through 'settings/potfolio settings/portfolio style' and at the bottom of the page you have the option to change the background colour.

Thank you rogerfry for your answer.

Unfortunately I can not see the last option 'background colour' as you mentioned, at all.

What I see, is as follow:
kombizz > Portfolio Information > Portfolio Style (which ask me to change or keep the image : This photo appears on your about page. It should be a picture of yourself.
kombizz > Portfolio Information > Default Portfolio Photo (Select the photo you would like to feature out of your gallery. This is your latest photo by default.)
kombizz > Portfolio Information > Join e2 (Join e2 to have a header image on all your portfolio pages and be able to change the style of your portfolio)

Is there any Digital Frame with 16BG internal Memory?
An old lady asked me if there is any digital frame with internal memory beyond 4GB in order to put all of her entire photo collection in it.
Initially my answer to her was no. Then I searched more and found no answers. I was thinking the best tool for her would be a tablet.
Then, my questions to you are as follow:
Q1- I wonder if anybody knows about any digital frame with 16GB internal memory?
I was not able to find any Digital Frame in Google or any other sites.

If the answer is no, then
Q2- What is the cheapest tablet 10" - 12" LCD with 16GB internal memory?
I found the tablet NATPC with 16GB in Amazon.
Do you any similar cheap tablets with 16GB?
I should mention she does not have any computer knowledge, and she primarily would like to use the tablet for viewing her images.
Q3- Is it possible to turn off all of the programes in the tablet except the photo section?
Thank you.

Quote: There's this:

http://kaystreet.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/obama-administration%E2%80%99s-achieve...

As an alien resident in the US, I cannot vote, so I'm not criticizing or praising this administration. But one thing I know, is that people have all too quickly forgotten the mess the previous administration got this country into. Not an easy mess to clean-up imho.

I do wish Obama had not tried to unite democrats and republicans, and had instead attempted to push through some of the bills esp wrt health care while he still had support and momentum. Maybe he as many is guilty of lack of vision. I guess that was a bit of crit Tongue

I wonder how many of these went wrong!

Do you always honest?

Quote: That video lays out the way politics has become so polarised - someone who does not manage to achieve what they wanted immediately becomes 'a liar'. I would rather have someone like Obama who has stated what he would like to achieve than have Bush and his cronies who never even bothered to try.

I like your apparently reasonable stance, but I'm sorry to say I don't have the same belief in Obama that you have. I'm bitterly disappointed in Obama because he has not delivered anything of note since coming into office.
He has been in office for several years now and yet he has not kept any of his promises as far as I can see. If Obama was a real president (a very rare species indeed) he would push through the reforms he talks about (he's a good talker) and tell the creeps around him to sod off. If he loses his presidency as a result, so be it...at least he would have left office on a real matter of principle. Corruption in politics is like the natural environment i.e. it feeds like a parasite on those who don't make it their business to stamp it out. It's time, I say for a few real men or women to stand up and be counted...
So really I have to agree in principle with "kombizze's" stance, though ostensibly, yours is more mature and reasonable.

Amen !

If we consider there are 7 lies around 2 minutes, then:
60 X 7 = 420
420 / 2 = 210 lies / 1 Hr
Then no wonder the nation is in a BIG mess!
