  1. I've been messing around with square framing recently, and here's a few I've done it to.
  2. Nice shots sigma! I just recently got an old Nikon FE film SLR camera, so I'm gonna post some film shots I took.
  3. Trasher those are really awesome, some cool perspectives in that set. Anyways here some from a recent holiday to indonesia - Borobudur Temple.
  4. When Sheep Can't Sleep A new 35mm lens, and a bit of paper - custom Bokeh. good fun.
  5. quick answer: Low ISO means clearer, crisper image (less noise). However low ISO requires more light (wide aperture or slow shutter speeds, or a flash) High ISO means fuzzier, grainier (more noise). But the advantage is that it requires less light, so a faster shutter speed or narrower aperture can be used. Generally speaking: Bright sunny days: low ISO Indoors or at night: High ISO
  6. really? I thought it looked about right. more exposure would've blown out the signs I think. anyways, two more.
  7. taken at 200mm at night handheld. Turned out not too bad considering.
  8. Nice, I like the one of the ferris wheel. And the close up of the capitol building.
  9. Lenses arrived, had a bit of a play with them this avo. They both seem pretty sweet, they do what they say they do and the quality seems just fine. I bet nit picking experts could find things to be bothered about but as far as I'm concerned - they're good lenses. The 90's auto focus speed is pretty fast too, doesn't seem to get caught or anything. Anyways, here's some pics, first a couple from the wide angle then a few from the 90mm. Bear in mind that this was about 4:30pm on a mostly cloudy day (occasional seconds of sunshine kind of day), and only of stuff near my house, so
  10. works out to be about 1200US for the two lenses. That was slightly more expensive than that park cameras site linked to earlier once the conversion is done. But only a little bit and I get 10% in points to spend at the store I got them from here (yodobashi camera). Along with the camera I bought means I have enough points to just about get that 50mm lens free... But now I feel pretty set up - cam, bag, wide lens, macro lens and a general lens. PL filter and uv filters. And a tripod. Until I'm really sure of what I'm doing and things I need, that kit and my bike will be more than happy.
  11. Undoubtedly play with cs4! I know it seems a bit complicated at first, but just take images and draw on them and *fruitcage* them up in all kids of ways. Play with the filters, and all the options in the Image>Adjustments menu. You'll have no idea at first what you are doing but in the end it will all be worth it! I totally sympathise with your frustration though, I am going through the same thing with Illustrator. gah, that thing frustrates me cos I've got no clue how to do it. oik; Hah! that'd likely put me off entirely, there's some things I don't need to see magnified...
  12. I just ordered the Tamrom 90mm, so I'll be able to tell you within the week how I like it. I love macro photography. I also ordered the Tamron 10-24mm wide angle, for the landscapes. decided against the prime just now, I dont think I do enough portrait/people work to justify it. The shopping cart bill was piling up a little high too. At some point I will pick one up though I'm sure.
  13. Cheers, yeah it was the setohashi, its a pretty amazing piece of engineering. And sorry I should've been more clearer with my question; I don't mean to use the 50mm for landscapes but for people. What I was wondering was if there was a substantial difference between using the 18-200 at 50mm, and the prime. I realise there is some difference but I wondered if it was enough of a difference for it to be worth getting. I have a D90, so not full frame. Cheers for the note on the Sigma, I will look in to the tamron and tokina ones they have, I haven't actually placed my order yet s
  14. Yeah I'm also in the new lens market, I'm considering two, possibly three if I can bear the cost... one is a 105mm macro by Sigma, its half the cost of the Nikkor version which means I can afford a second lens - the Nikkor 20mm 2.8 prime. On top of that I'm considering a 50mm prime too (the nikkor afs one). A question actually - If I get the 20mm (want it for the sharpness and wide angle, for landscapes) would the 50mm just feel redundant? I already have an 18-200mm lens on there which is a fantastic walk around lens but I want as was said before - the wowness the sharpness a pr
  15. putting my new camera through its paces...
  16. Thanks for the compliments! those photos were taken with a panasonic lumix, lx3, a great compact cam. But! I needed more haha, so I finally bit the bullet and got a dslr - a Nikon D90, 18-200mm VR nikkor lens. Its nice, I like. I took some photos with it tonight, here's a couple from it;
  17. I remember having feeding issues the first few times i was using my VSR, and that was to do the the way I was returning the bolt, I learned to be a bit gentler with the return and everythign works just fine now.
  18. Great review, interested to see how things go. I love sniping in japan, it's a hell of a challenge.
