#79940 when I process the taken pictures with Photoshop Image->Adjustments->...

It looks like dust on the sensor (which becomes more visible the narrower your aperture).  The solution would be to clean the sensor using a blower as a first step, and look into a cleaning kit or professional service if that doesn't help.

#77244 Why not?

It looks like your donation from last month was for some reason not automatically registered.  I've fixed this and you should now have the proper amount of attachment space.  Sorry about that!

Are you still experiencing this issue?

#76535 Telephoto Lens Suggestion

Posted by Adam on 03 January 2022 - 11:57 AM

In terms of value I'd say it's hard to beat the Tamron if you are looking for a F2.8 lens:



At 200mm this is over 10x your base focal length of 18mm, but it certainly won't give you more reach than the 55-300mm.


If you do need more reach there's the Sigma 150-600mm, which is also cheaper but also roughly the same aperture as your existing lens:




Another consideration which might make things more economical in the long run would be to upgrade the body to something with more sensitive AF / better high-ISO performance.  Then you'd be able to get away with using slower/smaller lenses :)

#76030 Shutter count

It should be low- single or double digits at worst (due to the manufacturer's testing).

#75804 Question on picture size

Posted by Adam on 14 November 2021 - 10:22 PM

If you up-sample a low-resolution photo, it might get accepted by the printer, but technically you're not adding any detail to the photo.  I'd make sure that your camera resolution is in fact set higher than 1620 x 1080 :)

#75520 Dark round spots on landscapes with lotss of sky. Using Z50 and DX 16-50 lens...

Looks like dust on the sensor- you'll want to clean it, starting with a (manual) blower or using a cleaning kit/professional service.

#75100 Chromaic aberration

Posted by Adam on 05 September 2021 - 05:47 PM

A few things to try:

1. Ensure the focus is accurate

2. Stop down by an extra stop or two

3. Reduce the exposure slightly


As this looks like a pretty tight crop, the whole image may not be quite as bad as it may appear.  Software should be able to fix most of the aberrations for you.

#74894 Why does my full frame crop so much of the frame?

Posted by Adam on 23 August 2021 - 02:35 AM

Are you using an APS-C ("DX") lens?  If so, the camera will by default crop the image so that it doesn't captures areas not covered by the lens.


Swapping to an FX lens would solve this issue.

#74091 How to: Gaining Free Access to Blogs & Classifieds

Posted by Adam on 03 July 2021 - 05:08 PM

Due to increased pressure from spammers, we will now require users who wish to start a blog or post in the classifieds to first manually request access.


To do so, please shoot me a PM or contact us.


This does not apply to users who have made a donation.  Also, if you've already made a blog, you should be able to continue posting. 


In the future, we will be making this an automated process.  For now, thanks in advance for understanding!

#74090 Aperture Priority D3200

Posted by Adam on 03 July 2021 - 04:40 PM

(I've moved your thread to the Q&A forum).


Since the camera thinks it needs more light, it would need to push the ISO even higher, which is outside of the auto ISO range.  That's why it is opting for the aperture instead.


Assuming there is sufficient light, to get what you want, you'd otherwise need to be in manual mode with auto ISO.

The camera may unfortunately be bricked.  You may need to send it to a service center.

#73523 Problem viewing images

Posted by Adam on 15 May 2021 - 10:24 PM

Very frustrating… this problem requires some attention from the site operator.

I spoke today with internet guru friends of mine. They looked into my end of it
but found nothing that could explain this situation.   :wacko:

I see your photos are being served over HTTP rather than HTTPS.  Modern browsers are now outright blocking mixed content requests (such as HTTP images embedded on a page that otherwise uses HTTPS, which applies to most websites including this one). You will need to work with your host to enable HTTPS support, which is trivial to do and shouldn't involve any costs.


As an alternative, you could simply share links rather than embedding your photos, but this will make for a worse user experience of course.

#67879 Small circle appearing in nearly every of my photos...

Posted by Adam on 17 May 2020 - 07:24 PM

It looks like there could be a piece of hair on your sensor (not the mirror).  I'd recommend cleaning the sensor, first with a manual air blower (such as this one), and later with a physical cleaning kit, if needed.
