    Sony Small backpack for sony nex gear ?

    Try the Kata 466i. I use it with a Nex 7 kit. It is light weight, built-well, has a 13 inch capacity laptop compartment, as well. Fits under an airline seat easily and can accommodate a tripod when needed. Overall, a versatile backpack that can be over-stuffed when needed but carries light...

    Color Efex Pro 4

    I had pre-paid for an upgrade and got my email yesterday. Very much worth the upgrade price of $99.00 (USD), imho. Additional filters, history feature, ability to add image frames, ability to stack and add filters without leaving the program, and a feature to save the filters into a "recipe"...

    Joe McNally Presents: A 9/11 Remembrance, In Pictures

    As we near the 10th Anniversary of 9-11, one of the most poignant articles I have read that should resonate with all photographers is the story told by professional photographer Joe McNally in the linked blog post. There is a video embedded in the post that is very moving and well produced...

    Leaving Micro 4/3... But what for?

    Stratokaster, As Don mentioned I had a 60D, and it was a great camera. I actually sold it and moved to a T3i/600D when it came out and have been very pleased with that camera. The move was mostly subjective and mostly because I wanted a little smaller form factor as I travel with the camera...

    Canon New Canon S95 Help !!

    The flash does not pop up when it is off. I have the Richard Franiec grip which just becomes part of the camera once easily installed. Can't comment on the Flipbac, as I have never used one. Good luck.

    Micro 4/3 G3: White Water Kayaking at Great Falls, Virginia (12 images)

    Thanks for the kind words. The park is a bargain at $5.00 (USD) a day per car or $20.00 a year. Other than some summer weekends, it is never too crowded, On some weekday visits in the winter, I have been the only one there, other than the Park Rangers.

    Micro 4/3 G3: White Water Kayaking at Great Falls, Virginia (12 images)

    I had an opportunity to borrow a friend's G3 kit for a few hours the earlier this week. I took it out to the Great Falls National Park in Virginia located on the Potomac River about 10 miles up from downtown Washington, DC. I have taken a great number of pictures there over the past few years...

    Fuji In the coffee shop today

    I think when the pictures were taken the intent was not to compose an image that was going to be entered into a photo contest. It was merely to please the person taking the photograph and to capture something they was interesting and to serve as a staring point to taking images with their new...

    Apple Aperture

    Heather, Aperture, like iPhoto is a non-destructive editor and your edits are made on a duplicated version and your original master image remains intact should you need it at a later time. Aperture is a step up and a little more complicated than iPhoto and there is a bit of a learning curve...

    Canon A Night with the Canon S95 & Britney Spears

    Bill, there are times I have both the S95 and my Canon DSLR with me and use both. I have some very decent lenses for the T3i. I shoot raw on both and sometimes when I put all the images into a common project file on my computer, on a quick look, it is hard to initailly tell sometimes which...

    Need Help Making Final Choice

    I am not familiar with that brand, but they would no doubt work also. If you search around here and elsewhere, you will find a high percentage of happy Franiec grip users. His work is top shelf, and he mills his products from aircraft aluminum. After you install them, they look like they were...

    Need Help Making Final Choice

    Good choice. I had the LX5 before I ended up with the S95 based on a few subjective needs with the pocketablity being foremost. I would recommend getting the Richard Freniec grip and maybe the Luigi compact camera wrist strap. The former really adds a dimension to the camera and makes it much...

    Many People using Color Efex?

    Best noise removal software?

    A vote from me for Nik Dfine. I use Aperture 3 and have found their noise reduction to be a little lacking and using Dfine as a plug-in works fine for my needs.

    Apple Nik Software & iPad = Snapseed

    I've tried it briefly (so far) and it seems like a well thought-out and developed app especially if you already are use to the Nik style interface with their full programs on the computer. It combines elements of Silver Efex Pro, Viveza 2, and Color Efex Pro and offers various presets. There...

    Thanks for the complement Dave. However, not trying to "cheat" or make anyone look bad as I am truly an amateur and I usually have enough on my hands just making myself look bad. The Canon T3i/600D is a small DSLR for sure and certainly falls in the same category as the Pentax K-5, and Sony...
