I'm a Microsoft Software Development Engineer on the Trustworthy Computing Team. I've worked at several security related places previously, including Malware Bytes and PreEmptive Solutions.

On StackOverflow I mostly answer related questions, though I occasionally forray into and a couple of others.

I am the author of pevFind, a component of the ComboFix malware removal tool, and volunteer at BleepingComputer.com as a malware response instructor. My Twitter account is @MalwareMinigun.

comment Do point and shoots exist which can get close to what DSLRs can produce? (And where could I find one?)
@mattdm: Figured it out -- basically, when you scroll through flash settings, no flash is not available as a setting. But if you close the flash itself, then it won't open itself automatically while in manual mode.

+1 -- Does that loss of resolution affect the image quality? Sure, you've got fewer pixels, but you're getting all 24 bits per pixel, rather than 8. (No, I don't work for foveon, I'm just trying to understand ;) )

comment Why do my photos look better on an iMac?
I don't think the LED versus CCFL screens are an issue here. There are plenty of CCFL based screens (e.g. Dell's U2711, U3011; HP's ZR30w, etc) which are capable of reaching or exceeding Adobe's RGB gamut, and there are plenty of LED based screens (i.e. the panels used in Apple's laptops) which cannot produce the full gamut (Because one needs RGB (rather than White) LEDs to reach the full spectrum). Backlight is important, but if you're talking about gamut, then gamut is what you want to look at, not backlight technology.

I'm sorry for switching the accepted answer on ya -- but the pictures from drewbenn really illustrate the point well.

@ysap: Yup. TLA is a TLA. ETLA is an ETLA. EETLA is an EETLA :)

@Matt: Hey, I work in software development. I'm used to "strange terms" on a regular basis. (Though usually our strange terms are TLAs, ETLAs, or EETLAs) (Three letter acronym, extended three letter acronym, expanded extended three letter acronym)....

Okay, so this has more to do with the camera than with the lens?

comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
Have a "green bent angle thing" by popular demand.
