And I am having fun with the anti-shake! The little green bars that show you how much your moving make a HUGE difference...I wish my A1 had them!

I can tell - shooting at f/32 just to see it worked hey... Where you dancing while snapping too ??? :lol: :-) :lol: :-)

This is an incredible camera... in time people will wake up to it - I just saw another guy pushing a $1600 IS lens again on the other forum!
(The original D7/Di were sleepers too... until the Hi/A1 came along and kill the Coolpixes line) :?

That's cheating - the floating gangway can act as a stabilizer! :lol::-):lol::-)

There must be a reason as to why I'm still holding out on the 20D...

Ha F32 again :-), you need to add a couple of ND filters to get the shutter speed way way down :blah:.

You need to test the IS again while standing on pavement next to a jackhammer :blah::blah::blah:

I'm doing some indoor ISO/noise/sharpness comparison shots today using hot lights. For kicks I took a shot of my setup since some people may wonder how I use my cheesy clamp lights with umbrellas.

BTW...I shot this using my A1, handheld for a half a second :blah:

Actually, if you'll notice the closet doors on the left-hand side of the picture...from about the light-stand holding the white umbrella & to the left is normally where I hang my backdrops when shooting models.

Also, in the image shown the silver umbrella (with a 150W bulb) is in about the perfect position for a main light (considering I'm just shooting the scene on the left hand side of the dresser). When shooting a model, it would be in virtually the same orientation (angle & above her).

The white translucent umbrella was used for fill light (with a 100W bulb) because, being translucent, it also loses another stop of light compared to the main light.

The only thing different I normally do would be to use my 60" Eclipse umbrella for the fill light & have it just above eye level (with the model) & directly to her right front. I also position the camera closer to the right lower edge of the fill umbrella.

I have shot models using just the hot lights & umbrellas as shown but I normally use a strobe or 2 instead of the just hot lights (it freezes movement, blinking, etc...a problem with people, not with products). Also, the hot lights are tungsten, so that's where your white balance should be set (strobes are set for flash or daylight).


From the closet-door studio...no backdrop, just the closet doors.

Just saw this in the other thread: http://www.upcdatabase.com/item.pl?upc=043325995606

Either Minolta has decided to use the Kodak's sensor (great for studio) or it's a hoax...

Did you notice the menu choices to modify the description? They appear to be operable.

I didn't try to save changes, but I'm wondering if that's how the description got there.

Edit/Added:

Hmmmmm..... I also see some other interesting entries in the Database (12mb Pentax, etc.). We should find out soon enough if these are real or not with PMA coming up.
