Re: Perfect Exposure

thanks yes I was refering to histogram :-)))
As perfect exposure I am sorry I was refering to post production phase, how to balance it on PS or LR.

Exactly what Kaphias said. Pixels are pixels, PPI does just not apply when we see shots on a screen. It's the screen resolution that will determine how large you see a photo for a given (pixel) size.

Bumpers for Lens - In Flight Photography

Hello all,
someone told me that there're bumpers to be installed on lens which turn to be very useful during in flight photography. You can press it on the window resulting in a more stable position.
Do you have experience with such tools?

Best regards
