  • At the risk of stirring up the pot 10 years later, here we go…2010 is NOT the start of the second decade of the 21st century, but rather the last year of the first decade. (there was no year 0). This is the same silliness that we all argued about when 2000 happened. I thought I would start this year off with a little harmless controversy. Happy new year, regardless of the decade!

  • Thanks for the round up Darren! DPS is my main resource for tips and inspiration and it gave me the confidence to move into professional photography in 2009. I never tire of reading your daily newsletters or re-reading previous posts such as these so keep up the good work and all the best for 2010!

  • Nice reminder of some of the great resources and articles that can be found on DPS. It was great to browse through and remind myself of the articles that I had already read and great to read the ones that I had missed originally.

    Darren and Staff,

    Happy New Year to you and may 2010 bring you the best of everything. Having joined DPS in December 2009, I was delighted to have the information from the previous year made available to me on the start of the next year. Am a 70 yr.old retired teacher and purchased a Nikon D5000 several months ago. You have helped me to learn so much more about Photography; but I have much more to learn also!
    Keep up the great work and know that I deeply appeciate your time and experience. You make each day of mine a little bit brighter.

    I purchased a Tower Camera, 35mm, from Sears 30 plus years ago and it was the greatest camera ever( I now own digital cameras $400 range, but none of them have the features that the Sears had: when I turned the lenses body, one of several wheels, the camera would automatically, manually, adjust other settings; the f stop, etc. Several other parts of the lenses body would turn in other directions by the one wheel I was turning until I reached what I wanted to achieve. Then I would adjust the focus? In any case, the pictures, portraits in particular, would come out PERFECT. What kind of digital camera does this and are they affordable? We lost most everything in Katrina (2005) or house flooded and the two digital cameras purchased since then are not the same, that is, the multi wheel feature. Suggestions please-I would like a digital that can do this at an affordable price-$300 or so.

    I miss my Powershot A650. It fell. Nothing new can touch it. Wound up buying a DSLR which can’t do one bit more than the 650 did except it cost much more and I still am trying to get enough decent glass to do what that one camera used to do. I avoided getting a DSLR for all these years because I didn’t want to go back to hauling a pile of lenses and dealing with all that weight, But, I’m back. Sometimes, there are no good choices. To date, to replace the functionality of the A650, I’ve spent $600 for the camera (Canon T3). $399 for the 85mm lens. $329 for the 35mm lens. The kit lens sucks. and I won’t use it. Oh, and another $200 to update PhotoShop so I can use RAW files.And I’ve barely started. And this isn’t counting miscellaneous filters, camera bag, spare battery, etc. ad nauseum. I don’t actually feel the T3 is better than the 650, either. Hrrrrumph.
