  • Who Shoots What

      Canon DSLR - UV filters, under some conditions (hazy landscapes) improve contrast slightly. Provided you use good quality filters, they won't do any harm and offer a degree of protection for your lens.

      Cheers,

                I use the Nikon N80 and frequently use a UV filter and a Circular Polarizer. I think it can make a good difference when used together. The UV filter I leave on for protection of the lens. I don't see it makes too much difference.

                  You must be the first owner of one of theses in the UK, How is it? I would love to Know.

                  By the way I noticed on the specs for the D100 that the slowest ISO setting is 200. Since joining JPNet all the commments I have seen suggest that ISO100 is the only speed to use. Is digital different to film?

                      digital v film

                      digital has no grain as such but it does have noise which starts, on the d100 to be apparent around 400 iso. unlike film the noise or grain is not as pronounced. this gives a grainless feel at 200 iso and also allows, on good files, quite big prints. grain is a function of film sesitivity measured in iso speed. iso speed on digital is a nominal neasurement for turning up the sensitivity of a chip which equates to more noise. at the end of the day it all depends on the size and use of the final image but a good indication of the benefits of digital can be seen in the magazine industry here in australia- almost all the major companies will not take film anymore. ACP who publish titles like womens weekly and cleo are totaly digital using a mixture of canon nikon and medium format digital backs. having said all that nothing quite beats a well exposed sharp transparency

                        It is fun to use. I like the instant availabilty of the image not having to wait for the slides to come back from processing is a big plus. it shares the same sensor as the Nikon D100 but in a much smaller camera. If i was new to photography would I buy the pentax? Nikon, Pentax and Canon are all good cameras. So yes i would buy it but the major drawback with the Pentax is the limited range of high spec lenses available when compared to the Canon and Nikon.

                        A full review is available here http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentaxistd/

                        Just over the weekend I was scaning a slide I took 20 years ago. What will the output of current digital cameras look like on the display devices that wil be in use in 20 years? Will they be little more than thumbnails? Thats why I will continue to use slide film as well as digital.

                              I use a Nikon D100, but considering 'out of the camera' images, I think, from what I've seen, pictures straight from the D100 tend to have to have more Photoshop time than lets say a Canon D60 or 10D, in my opinion.
