    Feedback i've been seeing a LOTo of ads

    Over theast few days, when I log in to Cameraderie.org (only tried it on my android phone with firefox so far), I get a LOT of LARGE ads. Some of these consist of a list of links with thumbnail photos, where some links are apparently a thread here on cameraderie, and others are advertisement...

    yet another 'what should i get' thread...

    I'm about to leave on a 3 month backpacking trip to West Africa, and I'm driving myself crazy with the decision process for a small-ish street / personal experience camera (i will probablt also bring a long zoom camera that is too clunky and conspicuous for quick / street work). Please bear with...

    Long weekend in Scotland

    My girlfriend and I visited Scotland for a 4 day getaway, two weeks ago. For a change, we didn't go for cities and culture, but for breathtaking landscapes... which we found more than we ever could have imagined. I've selected some of my favorite shots... but it was hard to choose, and...

    Whitewall sample pack - acrylic, HD metal, alu print, some papers

    I'm planning to have some of my photos printed Big, and I'd really like them to look the absolute best they can, for the ages. The most accessible and affordable of the really high end photolabs is probably WhiteWall, based in Germany. They have lots of wonderful materials to display your print...

    Off to Georgia (the country)!

    So, after an initial failure to post this (see I am upset), here's my second attempt! :) (update: whew, I managed it!) This past summer, I finally got the chance to move out of the corporate world and into my dream job. In-between jobs, I had 3 weeks off, so I went backpacking. Having traveled...

    Where's Wally? Ming Thein on Wimmelbilder (many sub-stories in 1 image)

    Ming Thein posted an interesting article on a concept known as "Wimmelbilder" in German. I found it very interesting :) I've become more and more interested in panoramic image formats, and in a way I think well-crafted panoramic images, when they contain several subjects, can often be considered...

    Fuji Century Precision Optics wide angle converter on X100?

    I'd love to find a good quality compact wide angle adapter that takes the x100 wider than 24mm equivalent, but all the reviews I read so far show the converters to be huuuuge, or turn the image to mush, or both. I recently came across the American brand Century Precision Optics. They make...

    Ming Thein on street photography

    Reading this discussion https://www.photographerslounge.org/showthread.php?t=31657&page=5 got me thinking... indeed the comments here tend to be polite without offering much in the way of suggestions for improvement, and the photo critique forum is used very little (just 5 threads so far this...

    Fuji Fuji X30 announced

    http://www.dpreview.com/previews/fujifilm-x30 From a technology viewpoint, I would've liked either a larger sensor or a faster lens. Right now, only the RX100 series and G1X series outperform it among compact zoom cameras, but I think/hope that'll change before Photokina is over. As it is...

    Canon EOS 70D has vastly improved on-chip PDAF

    Not a serious compact in itself, but the technology sounds very promising! Basically every pixel on the chip (except at the edges) becomes not only an image generating pixel, but also a phase detect pixel, giving live view pdaf even in low-light situations with (supposedly) no loss in light...

    Graphene sensor development - 1000x better light gathering than CCD / CMOS

    Graphene camera sensors said to be 1,000 times more sensitive to light now that'd be interesting! cheaper, less power consumption and MUCH more light gathering - 1000 times is 9 stops, that'd mean almost any shutter speed, even in the dead of night. Wow!

    Fuji X100 - setting ISO to 6400, possible workaround?

    Hi all, I often find myself running into the high limit of Auto ISO on the X100 (which is 3200 - why can't we use the full ISO range in Auto ISO?). Am I correct in thinking that the only way to select ISO 6400 is to go into the menus, disable Auto ISO, and then set ISO 6400 manually? And...

    Experiment: high-speed version of Brenizer method

    This is my first proper attempt at doing something I've had in my head for quite a while now. I love panoramas, and I really love panoramas with some DOF control for an extra-immersive effect. However, using the traditional, controlled method of stitching panoramas is not suited to a dynamic...

    Fuji Filters; cheap or expensive?

    Fuji How do people use multi metering?

    Fuji X100 screen warmer than monitor?

    Hi all, I just bought an X100, and I noticed that photos look warmer (and skintones milkier) on the camera's screen, compared to when I view them on my laptop. Do other X100 users experience the same difference (meaning the X100's screen is warm by default compared to the actual photos) or is...

    Sony RX100 for 454 euros @ Amazon Spain
