"Regardless of what he uses, he uses it to its fullest potential. If you’ve seen The Shawnshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, The Assassination of Jesse James, Skyfall or even How to Train Your Dragon, you’ve seen his work. The guy’s got a resume, and it’s a wonder that none of his work has placed him an oscar yet. Here’s how a few of his most iconic shots were done" - Mark H from Bookmarklet

Started getting the infamous Err99 code on my Canon 40D. Tried different lenses & CF cards & it still pops up. No, bueno, Batman...

Anyone have any insight or tips to remedy this? - JA Castillo
As an FYI...I have changed out lenses in case it might be the contacts...tried 3 different CF cards...removed and reset battery multiple times. Ended up with a 99 despite these measures. Hoping for something simple, but right now, I am having my doubts. :( - JA Castillo
That really stinks. :( - Jenny H. from Android
Yes...yes, it does. :( - JA Castillo

Get your stars right! A tool for exposure time estimation to avoid star-trailing effects.
"One of the most important variables in long exposure night photography is exposure time! Why? Exposure time defines the overall amount of light that will reach the sensor of your camera, making the starry summer sky visible in your photos. In principle, the longer you expose your photo, the higher the level of detail of the stars and the landscape features." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

at the end, I bought a Canon PowerShot SX260HS. Both the price and the megapixel-resolution are lower than other cameras I had selected (I was going to buy a Panasonic Lumix) and what got me convinced was to use the "Comparometer" here http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP... - by comparing actual pictures I could see that Canon PowerShot SX260HS makes better pictures, slightly lower resolution notwithstanding - Opensource Obscure

Is peeping not illegal? Even if the photos themselves are not illegal, I would imagine the act of peeping on his neighbors, with or without a camera, is still less than legal, isn't it? Maybe they should all take out restraining orders against him. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

"In this tutorial, we’ll take that lens off the camera and do some freelensing, also known as lens whacking. By unmounting the lens, you can create tilt-shift effects and introduce great light leaks. With this guide and a little practice, you’ll be creating dreamy images in no time." - vicster: full-bodied from Bookmarklet

So, how many of you actually post camera photos to @instagram? So many I come across look too clean and/or good to be from a phone.
You pretty much lose the "instant" aspect of "Insta"gram if your shots are post-processed. :( #photography #lamesauce - JA Castillo
I don't think I've ever posted a single photo to instagram. Never understood the appeal, myself. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
