Hi Steve,

I never post my professional work, but I do have a website where you can see hobby and travel samples I've shot with a variety of digicams from various manufacturers.

You can always find this information by simply clicking on the "Profile" of a poster - but here's a link to save the step...

Best regards,

Lin

OK, you know how to use a camera! You certainly get around.

I haven't seen them all as it takes ages with 56k dial-up but I partucularly like oldyellow.

How about you post a picture taken on one of your super duper, mega expensive cameras for us to closely inspect - I'd love to see how it compares to a normal peasant's camera.

Well counting the toys, I have four digital cameras.
Nikon coolpix 2500 2mp, Sanyo VPC-X350 850K pixel, takes great pictures and 60 second AVI's with sound, also does slide shows on tv,
Than theirs the toys... Aiptek VGA pencam, ok as a outside sneak shot camera, poor resolution, ok for a web cam, also I have the Aiptek Megacam 1.3mp, takes 40 to 50 shots also outdoor use, not good indoors, very small and takes good 1.3 mp pictures, except chrome on cars, etc. show color bands, it must be because it uses a CMOS instead of a CCD.
No other digital cameras coming in the near future, budget reasons.

Hi Steve,

Unfortunately, the full sized original images would tax the bandwitch on the forum (tiffs are over 20 megabytes) and probably take an hour or more to load with your modem. A number of the images on my site were taken with one or more of my better cameras - but here's a reduced sized image from my Canon EOS-1D taken with a 100-400L IS at 400mm.... Nothing special, and really there is not all that much difference in the output of a $6000 camera and a $2000 camera - the primary difference is the features which let you get the shot under trying circumstances...

Best regards,

Lin

Hi Steve,

The "expensive" cameras really don't take better images than some of the good prosumer models like the D30/D60, D100, F1, F2, etc., but they do let you get those images under more difficult conditions of lighting, subject movement, etc.

It's really all relative to what one is trying to accomplish with the photo and how much time and effort they are willing to devote to the process. As with film, much of the "quality" is fine tuned in the darkroom (digital darkroom in the case of our cameras).

Once the fundamentals have been attended to, much improvement can generally be made in nearly any photo by the acts of cropping, adjusting levels, saturation, hue, contrast, etc. Many good tools are available to reduce noise and in general help make a good photo into a great photo.

Best regards,

Lin
