From my experience of buying and operating similar projectors for a camera club in the past I'd start out by saying the factors and figures you need to consider are not the ones they usually sell projectors on, and certainly applying bigger=better may not be appropriate... Pitfalls Most projectors are not sold or built for displaying photos, video is ...


Contrast ratio is the ratio of intensity between the darkest point the display can make and the brightest. In a dark room, the bright white spot will be 1000 times brighter than the blackest pixel on the 1000:1 ratio or 900 times on the 900:1. From that stat alone, the Epson has an advantage, however that also isn't the only stat you need to look at. ...


Considering that an average monitor has about 6-bit per channel color depth (8 bit minus the dithering), I guess 10-bit is for color proofing/professional DTP/digital cinema. And higher than 8 bit per channel has another challenges: Video card: the video card needs to support color outputs more than 8 bits per channel. Considering that DVI supports only 8 ...


If I am understanding you correctly, it sounds like you are taking a photo with the aperture set to less than the smallest f/ number possible for the lens. When you use a smaller aperture (larger f/number) then the image is darker and the depth of field is bigger (resulting in a sharper background). When you look through the viewfinder, the aperture is ...


You could use self adhesive magnetic tape. This has the advantage of being able to apply it on the back of the photo where you want to make it as secure as possible. It is also very thin and relatively cheap (depending how often you wanted to replace pictures)


There are two main reasons why the viewfinder image may look different from the result: You are using a small aperture when taking the photo, but when you look through the viewfinder or on the LCD display the aperture is always wide open to let in as much light as possible. You are using a large aperture when takting the photo, but the viewfinder limits ...


The comment is really saved, but it's in the photo file's metadata — a collection of information in each file describing the photo, the camera it was taken with, the camera settings, and so on. In the manual (page 138, Nikon says that you can see this with the included ViewNX 2 software. That's true, but you can also see it with any photo viewer which ...


Try something like Blu-Tack, or a similar putty adhesive. These have plenty of grip and leave no residue. You can also try better magnets as @dpollitt suggests. The kind you want are called 'rare earth' magnets and are super strong, but harder to find. Also, keep them far away from any recording media, memory cards, etc.


If it's a show being broadcast, I hit the freeze button on my remote. If it's a move or tv show on dvd/blu ray, I either press the freeze button on my tv remote or hit pause on the dvd player remote. Today I took a bunch of shots at various shutter speeds. I have a Nikon D5100. Using a tripod I used ISO 100 and found the shots that came out best were ...
