Fill-in flash is useful in many situations, even if we only have the built-in flash at hand. Even though an external flash offers a wide range of additional options and is recommended to achieve more professional results, the built-in flash is useful in many situations and can be slightly more versatile if we either make or buy an accessory called flash diffuser, which has the objective to “soften” the light.
Maybe you have been wondering if your branded flash is giving you the best bang for the buck.Or maybe you need more illuminating power when on location, without dragging around studio strobes, heavy power inverters and bags of extension cables; that is, if you have access to a wall outlet at all... In come the Godox Witstro portable bare-tube flashes.
Adobe DNG Converter is - apart from View NX2 - the only free alternative if you run a version of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) that is incompatible with your new Nikon. In this article I enlist a number of software alternatives and extensively describe the RAW-DNG conversion process, which is the same for any RAW format, independent of brand. DNG files can be opened by ACR ever since the first version of Adobe Creative Suite.
Today, Flickr launched a mayor interface update and finally - and I mean finally - eliminated their measly 200 picture limit for free accounts, something that was way overdue. Yahoo now give you one terabyte (1.000 Gigabyte) of space to show off your stuff, which makes them look a little like a pendulum: either hardly anything or way too much.
Adobe recently announced that they will not continue the development of their Creative Suite (CS) “perpetual license model” software as we know it, and - instead - pursue a new, cloud-based licensing model, called CC: Creative Cloud, which is - in short - a creative criminal client fuck...
With the D700 now being fazed-out, semi-pros and advanced amateurs are left with two full-frame cameras to choose from in Nikon’s mid-range price bracket, the D800E and D800 costing $ 3.300 and $ 3.000 respectively, while the D600 will set you back $ 2.100, a premium of $ 400 over the aging D300S APS-C camera. Even in the absence of independent tests of the D600, it is interesting to compare it against the D800, to figure out how much more camera $ 900 buys us, and ask ourselves if it is worth spending the roughly 50% extra.
Today, April 19, Nikon launched its new, “entry-level” D3200 camera, a dedicated wireless mobile adapter and the full-frame 28 mm f/1.8G wide angle lens. The D3200 is Nikon’s third camera launch in 2012 – after the D4 and D800/800E – and most likely the penultimate, short of the D300S replacement.
