Marco and Joseph answer on this episode:
- Hi - I just picked up the
"Copyright Zone" by Ed Greenberg and Ed Reznicki. In your
respective workflows, do you register your images prior to or after
"Post" processing? Thanks!
From Brian in Portland,
- I have a question inspired by
your recent podcast about lenses. What are the pros and cons of
using a 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom with a 2x teleconverter instead of
using a 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom? In particular, is there likely to
be any significant difference when shooting each lens at the
longest focal length? Thanks.
From James in Chandler,
- What advice would you give for
how to go about selecting a good lens hood for a reasonable price?
How about hoods for kit or zoom lenses? Will my old DSLR lens hoods
work with my new micro 4/3 lenses? Thanks.
From Curtis in Franklin,
- Hi. As a hobbyist photographer
posting photographs on social media. What do you do if someone
asked if they can buy one of them. Especially if the are from
another part of the world. Is it worth the hassle or should you
just send them a high res file by email and ask them to make a
donation to their favourite charity. Love the shows!
From Rob in the U.K.
- Hi - I was thinking of buying
the EE-1 Dot Sight for use with my 40-150 Pro Zuiko, which I
sometimes extend using the Zuiko 1.4x teleconverter. Have you had
any experience with the Dot Sight? What do you think? BTW I enjoy
the Mirrorless show. Thanks!
From David in Toronto,
- I'm thinking of purchasing a
monopod but before I do I wondered if you could give an opinion on:
Will it work ok for slow shutter (I like to blur water falls) or
should I stick to a tripod for this? Should I use image
stabilization or switch it off as with a tripod? I guess I'm
wondering how much a monopod can replace a tripod. The camera is a
Fuji XT1 Thanks in advance!
From Keith in Belfast, Northern
- I enjoyed your recent podcast
on lenses. Very useful advice. Many raw processors (e.g. DXO) try
to correct some flaws in lenses via computational algorithms.
Corrections include distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberration,
and fringing. Does this computational approach reduce the value of
expensive lenses relative to cheaper alternatives?
From Dan in Neilson,
- Hi, I do a lot of long exposure
landscape photography where I shoot at f11 or higher aperture. As
you can imagine dust specs are a problem in these shot. My camera
does have a sensor cleaning function, but that does not get rid of
all of the dust specs. What is the best way to clean my
