Reikan announces major update to FoCal AF tuning software: Digital Photography Review

FoCal automates the process of calibrating your lens to your DSLR camera body, important - if not absolutely necessary - for critical focus when using fast lenses that yield shallow depth-of-field. Calibration options are typically available under 'AF microadjustment' (or AFMA for Canon and Sony bodies) or 'AF Fine Tune' (AFFT for Nikon bodies) menu items, with the process being pretty laborious and relying on the user to shoot many shots, throwing off focus in between each shot, to determine the optimal AFMA or AFFT for any camera/lens combination. Further frustrating things is the fact that the optimal value can change due to conditions like temperature and humidity, as well as subject distance, making it rather difficult to nail down the optimal settings.

How To Read and Understand a Histogram (Professional Photographer Magazine Web Exclusives) By Ellis Vener “The map is not the territory” – Alfred Korzybski What is a histogram and what does it tell us about a photograph?

How To Read and Understand a Histogram (Professional Photographer Magazine Web Exclusives)

A histogram is nothing more than a bar graph. It shows how the luminance values in a digital or digitized photograph are distributed. The linear scale in a histogram runs from black at one end to white at the opposite end. The horizontal scale of the histogram measures exposure latitude, and the vertical scale measures quantity: it tells us how many pixels in the image have a specific luminosity value. Above, the histogram display from Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw shows channels represented by different colors. All NIKKOR Lenses for Digital SLR Cameras. Nikon AE-L / AF-L Button.

In this article, I will try to go through this button in depth and explain how I personally use it on my cameras. 3 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Back Button Focus. This article was written to expand upon some of the key points in my ebook Tack Sharp: A Step By Step Guide To Nailing Focus.

3 Reasons Why You Should Switch To Back Button Focus

Over the past couple of years (and really since writing my ebook) I’ve become a huge advocate for making the switch to back button focus. It was one of the most revolutionary changes I ever made to how I take pictures. It seems like such a small thing, yet it’s such a huge difference in the way your camera works. I honestly don’t know why this isn’t the standard setting on all cameras because after getting acclimated to this setting, I honestly can’t understand the meaning for or use of the ‘shutter half way down’ method.

Announcement Regarding the Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera. March 28, 2014 With regard to the issue with which multiple granular dust spots are reflected in images captured with the D600 digital SLR camera, Nikon sincerely apologizes for any concern and inconvenience suffered by D600 users, retailers, and all concerned.

Because Nikon takes this matter very seriously, we will continue to offer users of the D600 a special service with which cameras are inspected, cleaned, and if necessary, shutter and related parts are replaced free of charge, even after the product warranty has expired. However, if a number of multiple granular dust spots are still noticeable in images captured with a D600 upon which the above service has been performed several times, Nikon will replace it with a new D600 or an equivalent model.

Nikon will continue to work to improve the quality of its products and services even further. Pour les utilisateurs du reflex Nikon D600 (mise à jour du 28/03/2014) HOME.

PictureCorrect - Photography Tips and Techniques. Popphackner Photography. Utiliser les filtres polarisants en photographie nature. De tous les filtres couramment utilisés en photographie, s’il y en a un en particulier que vous vous devez de posséder, c’est bien un filtre polarisant. A quoi ça sert ? Beaucoup pensent qu’un polarisant ne s’avère efficace que lorsque le soleil brille pour renforcer le bleu du ciel. Ce n’est pas tout a fait exact.

Bien au contraire… Un polarisant est très utile pour diminuer voire éliminer les reflets, présents sur l’eau, le verre et les surfaces non métalliques. C’est aussi un des rares filtres dont l’effet ne peut pas être reproduit en post-production avec des outils comme Photoshop ou Lightroom. Naturapics.com - Le web de la photographie nature.
