Cost-cutting in lesser brands rampant
The Pentax KX has some great image attributes, but its build quality is toy-like. The Panasonic G2 is a horrible cost-cutting exercise, production shifted from Japan to China, kit lens debilitated, overall feel is cheaper than the excellent G1. Olympus even discontinued an MMF-1 4/3rs to m4/3rds adapter for the M... 3 Jul 2010 12:22

Coney Island Mermaid Parade Pictures 2010
Okay. I finally got around to cropping, selecting, and captioning my Mermaid Parade pictures from a week ago. 273 made the cut. If you are not familiar with this parade, which kicks off the summer at Coney Island, it is a very fleshy, yet family oriented parade. http://donwiss.com/pictures/Mermaid-2010/ Don ... 1 Jul 2010 22:15
Telling my camera not to use EXIF "Orientation"
Because of a peculiar interaction between the EXIF "Orientation" info, and how Preview and iPhoto deal with it (this is, obviously, on a Mac), I'd like to tell my camera (a Panasonic DMC-LZ5), not to set the Orientation value, but to always leave it at "1". Is there some way to do that? Isaac ... 30 Jun 2010 14:15
Canon S410 Problem
Tom in PA;1194375 Wrote: I just pulled my Canon S410, which I haven't used since '08, out of the drawer to make sure it was working OK, as I wanted to take it as a backup camera on an upcoming trip. It was fine when last used. It now has a strange problem: all normal functions (such as changing set... 29 Jun 2010 10:45
Irfanview 4.27 now saves based on the file extension you type
A welcome feature of the venerable Irfanview version 4.27 Windows freeware is it now saves the file type you enter into the file name. For example, if you enter foo.gif, it saves it as a GIF file; if you save it as foo.jpg, it will save it as a JPEG file. From the readme: - Save dialog: if you write file exten... 29 Jun 2010 19:37
best way to market pics ...
While my pics aren't exactly masterpieces, and I've got a long way to go till I'm happy with what I produce, I'm getting close to "technically" acceptable shots. With that in mind, I'm starting to think about doing a shoot or two specifically with sales in mind. Anybody out there with insight as to the most... 30 Jun 2010 16:29
