RE: Bangkok Photo Opportunities

In February 2004 a Airside Visit was available at a cost. My understanding is that this is now not available. As I will be in Bangkok early next week are there other locations in addition to the viewing deck in Terminal 1?

I would also appreciate an Email Malcolm

Thanks
Neville

While I'm confident that the greater control over sharpening will improve the result...

Auto Select

Since downloading photos 5 hours ago I am now experiencing problems with the auto select. Attempts to manually select Location and aircraft using the drop down menus not progressing to the first level. Should I bury my computer?

RE: Question About The Q

The addition of 3 photographs (12 to 15) has just moved my position from 5709 & 956 back to 9014 & 1587 after 5 days in the queue.

Any comments please from the crew about an apparent computer problem.

RE: Canon 10D - Lens Compatibility

I use Tokina lens with my 10D
19mm-38mm & 80mm-400mm

The results are better than with the Canon SLR cameras I was using and the acceptance level re airliners is a high percentage.

RE: Long Queue And My Suggestion

Johan The implemented process will hold photographers from uploading on a regular basis unless they are 100% sure their photos are "HQ" So the process is fair and should improve the overall quality. It also explains why I moved from 840 photographs and 81 photographers ahead of me to 3493 and 725 a ...

RE: Slide Scanning Help

Eric I'm using a Nikon Coolscan IV (three weeks old) to scan Sensia 100 slides which I have processed and cut into strips of 6. The camera is a Canon with normally a 80-400 Tokina. The aperture of 5.6 at max is a problem and I found that 1/350 can be used. Scanning. This is what I do Preview 1 Crop ...

RE: Tokina AT-X 80-400 F4.5-5.6 (opinions)

RE: Tokina AT-X 80-400 F4.5-5.6 (opinions)

Andrew The lens I wanted was A Canon Zoom to 400 but the price of A$6000 for a large aperture version was OUT. So I purchased the Tokina 80-400 for A$800. It is heavy and I'm still playing with speeds of 1/250 and 1/350 at the 400 limit when light conditions are poor since I'm using 100ASA Sensia. I...

RE: HP ScanJet 5200C Users (or Just HP)

The 5200 is available in Australia. I have recently purchased the HP 5300 a 1200dpi scanner. The default scan of 150 dpi will work with closeup photos of top quality. For the majority of my photos I use 600 dpi .This may change as I become more proficient with the scanner. I then use Photoshop and s...
