Hot Threads

  • Would you leave your camera in the car?: It’s often said that the best thing you can do is to bring your camera with you everywhere so that if the opportunity to take a photo comes up, you’re not left wishing you had your camera. But what if you either can’t, or don’t really want to take your camera everywhere. Do you leave it in the car? Or do you just not bring it with you at all? Come join the discussion in the forum.
  • Nikon to release 35mm f/1.8G Lens: Owners of the D40, D40x, and D60 will be happy to hear the news that Nikon is releasing a new prime lens that will auto focus on these cameras. Unlike their recent 50mm f/1.4G the 35mm f/1.8 is expected to be priced under $200. So now there’s another budget prime lens out there for Nikon users.
  • In five words… what makes a good photo?: It will take more than five words to explain this thread, but if you think about it, how would you describe what makes a good photo in only 5 words? My 5 words? Breathtaking and catches my eye. Come share your 5 words in the thread.
  • No cameras allowed: Even though many of us like to take a camera everywhere, sometimes there are just places and events where you can’t. Sometimes this means that you just don’t take pictures. But one forum member wants to know where you’ve gone to take pictures where you shouldn’t have or if you just take your camera anyway.
  • What Would You Do: This is our weekly post-processing challenge thread where you get the chance to edit the photo of another forum member who has kindly allowed us to use their photo. It doesn’t matter if post-processing is a new or old skill for you, everyone is welcome to show us what they would do!
