comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
@Imre: I'm confused. It looks like both 120 and 220 are medium format films; these images are certainly not taken on medium format (they're small and very grainy).

comment What's the best way to scan in hundreds of pictures?
@Imre: I don't think "110" means "110mm" -- it's smaller than 35mm film. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/110_film

comment Why choose an 80-200mm over an 18-200mm lens?
@mattdm: Yup. At least it's not a "Prime" lens.

comment How should one quickly convert a large number of NEF (RAW) files into JPEGs?
@mattdm: No. The process is CPU limited (I verified this in Process Explorer). The images themselves are sitting on an OCZ Vertex 2 which can feed some 200MB/s+ -- if secondary storage was the limiting factor then it would convert all hundred or so images in under two seconds.

@Craig + @mattdm: Actually what it says in there is what I'm using -- but waiting hours to get a single SD card of pictures in JPEG is kind of annoying.

The bottleneck on this box is CPU time, not disk access. (It's on an SSD in any case)

Damnit -- don't have that one. Will have to go hunting at the CWRU software center!

comment What happened to Foveon sensors?
Okay then; why didn't Canon or Nikon jump on it then? I'm sure it was pitched to them; they must have had some problem with it in order to reject it...

revised 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.
