A few items I’ve found recently related to digital cameras and digital photography. (In case you were wondering what I ended up doing after looking for SLR pointers in the summer, wonder no more.)
- Apple announced some (expected) hardware updates today, but from the left field comes news of Apple’s new high-end photo processing software. Looking through the product overview and videos, it’s definitely not a Photoshop competitor for most people. There are overlapping features, but it feels far more like a complementary tool than a replacement.
- CCD Flaws
- Own a point and shoot digital camera from Canon, Sony, Konica Minolta, or Fuji? Bad news; it might be defective.
- Why Focus-Recompose Sucks
- After discovering that the middle auto-focus point on most SLRs is the most sensitive, I wondered why I needed to bother with the rest of them? Why not just focus-recompose every time? And so that’s what I did. And now thanks to this article, I realize why my last month of shooting has been abnormally out of focus. Oh well.
