    Smartphone > Nikon Connectivity

    Hello Does anyone here have their smartphone/tablet connected to their Nikon (specifically) via hot shoe or USB OTG cable? I would like to connect my Android phone to my D800E so that I can use it as an extra field monitor. I want to do this so I can replace the standard Right Angle...

    Sunset Photography

    Focus on hypercocal distance, or subject third in. Shoot in M, ETTR so slightly overexpose to help avoid noise in shadows. Highlights can be recovered in PP DON'T shoot with the sun in frame. It's difficult not to but it's too much of a distraction and is not really required in the scene...

    Landscape lens which one

    16-35mm f/4 or 20mm f/1.8. Zoom or prime choice really. IQ on the 16-35 is slightly smarter than the 17-35 but the 17-35 is obviously a little faster. Shooting mostly from a tripod that shouldn't matter in most cases.

    Yeah well, I'll use ACR method now as the tool apparently is as good as any plug in. Not to mention the fact that applying the adjustment to a data file is far preferable than applying it to an image file.

    Noise isn't really that much of an issue with me tbh, its just I like to make the skies a little smoother with the Adjustment Brush. At +70 it looks just fine & does this without detriment to the image. This is only really noticeable in ACR at 300% I could probably get away with dialing in less...

    I've found that if used conservatively having the TC sliders at -12 to -15 it does help NR but I agree it's not ideal. Using the tools I already have I have just started to use the NR slider in ACR at somewhere around +70 on selected areas and found that it helps. I don't know why it has taken...

    Hi all A techy sort of question for Nik Color Efex users. It's probably not ideal but.... Can you use the Tonal Contrast filter as an effective noise reduction tool. That is if... Saturation = 0 Highlight Contrast = -15 Midtone Contrast = -15 Shadow Contrast = -15 I've used this on smoother...

    Ps & W10

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone is running Ps CS6 or older on Windows 10? I am currently on Windows 7 running CS6 and I'm unsure whether to upgrade to Windows 10 just in case my CS6 & plug ins don't like it up em. Any advice welcomed. Ta.

    I was diagnosed 2 years ago with Diverticular disease and subsequently had 2 hospital admissions because of it, diverticulitis is no fun. My bowel perforated just after elective surgery and I suffered faecal peritonitis and I am still living with the consequences 9 months later. Slowly on the...

    No. There was a 10% risk that an anastomatic leak could happen. It was pointed out to me prior to the op. I was just unlucky.

    Lindsay & Beth Thank you. Yes it hasn't been much fun. I had two attacks of acute diverticulitis, one in 2013 and one in 2014, the latter being more serious. I was treated both times with IV antibiotics but decided that two hospital admissions was enough. Not knowing when the next attack was...

    I dont get the point of workshops. Why pay someone extra money to show you around? I dont get it.

    Every Tom, Dick, Harry and their dog...

    ... are advertising that they are running workshops these days. Even those that arent that good. I doubt even they get much response but like to give the impression that thet they're worth it. This is fine but I don't know. Is it just me? It just smacks of complete pretentiousness. Rant over...

    The cult of Flickr

    Yeah I noticed. I miss the older days too, and the 47 contacts I do have are almost entirely from those days. I'm happy enough with those Stu, yourself included. I have always used Flickr as a source of inspiration.

    A Pano of Bristol

    :ty: Cheers Simon. I quite like the people in the image, I think it adds to it. Having a "heartbeat" in an image says something I feel. Saying that, I'm no expert. Thanks Gramps. I'd like to try it again @ 16mm with the UWA. I might get the same scope but in a more normal 2 x 3 aspect ratio...

    Lens dilemma.........

    If you aren't sure what to get I would say wait until you are sure what to get. Also, why did you sell the 35 1.8? This is odd behaviour. £200 is not going to get you any of those lenses you've mentioned apart from a used 10-20 maybe. What do you shoot most of all? Wanting to shoot birds...
