Hello Andy!

I saw your white dog...really it's NOT 100% sharp...Sorry!

Off the topic I just acquired at "Tel-Aviv" flea market an a Manfrotto/Bogen Monopod-Pro-479 for a mere $:5,00 (Yes five US dollars). Any input of this item form any of you will be welcomed!
Second, when use with any of my 3 digitally cameras with Anti-shake/IS...etc...must be the "Stabilizer" OFF or can be ON?:?

Peace,

Alex 007:|

I disagree with the line of thinking that the AS should always be off when on a tripod. If you're at extreme focal lengths, if your tripod or camera are subject to even slight movement, or if you're not using the remote shutter release, it may be beter to use the AS. I don't find the battery life to be a problem so in my own mind the question is 'will the AS increase or reduce sharpness on this shot?' It isn't that I find it to be bad advice most of the time, but turning AS off on the tripod isn't natural law, IMO.

On a monopod, I'd be likely to use AS.

Dear Mercury!

In the owners/instructions manual they advise to turn "OFF" the AS feature when is mounted on a tripod...maybe when is use inside home...when NO wind or any other issues, will disturb the steadiness of a tripod...!:?

Outside I really using my Common Sense...agree with you...also with a Monopod maybe the "UP/DOWN? issue don't exist but "Side" YES!!! So seems me that AS/VR/IS feature MUST be "ON"...all the time:P

Peace,

Thanks Alex

You made me search why the photo wasn't sharp as the original (by the way FrouFrou's color is apricot) and i found this information here:

and here for solution for those like me who are not mastering photoshop:

I'm using a program quick and easy called pixresizer i guest i will have to adjust

myself to something else if i want to sharp pictures in the future.

Have a nice and peaceful day

regards

Andy

Hello Andy,

For image editing/re-sizing have you tried Irfanview?

http://irfanview.com/

It works well and it's free!

Regards,
