Hot Threads

  • The Future of DX and EF-S Lenses: One of the things you may have considered when buying lenses for your DSLR is whether the DX or EF-S lenses will be able to grow with you in the future should you decide to upgrade your camera body. But will these lenses become obsolete in a few years? Or will full frame cameras continue to have high prices compared to crop bodies. Let us know your thoughts over in the forum.
  • Twas the Night Before Christmas… DPS Style: They call it the silly season for a reason, but I doubt this is it. One of our forum members has re-written The Night Before Christmas, DPS style. It’s a must read!
  • Exposing Properly for Snow: If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s probably gotten a lot colder and you may even be seeing snow. And if you have kids who are about to be on Christmas break, you may be even more interested in how to get great winter pictures. Come check out this thread to learn about how to expose properly for snow.
  • Do you NEED a second body?: sk66 said: “If you are pro making a living at it, then the answer is probably “yes”. But for the rest of you, do you have/ feel you need a second body? Why?” Come share your opinions over in the forum.
  • What Would You Do: Our weekly post-processing thread is continuing, but it’s in need of photos. So if you enjoy learning how to post-process photos and want a challenge, stop on by the What Would You Do thread in the forums and see how you can help out.
