I'm primarily a computer and photography enthusiast, but I have a variety of other interests as well, from video games to fountain pens. I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously; if there are any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

As a photographer, I use a Pentax K-5 (as well as a K-r as a backup or secondary camera), with a small selection of Pentax lenses. You can also find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

comment What apertures are required to enable autofocus, including cross-type or high-precision focusing, on Canon DSLR cameras?
@ides: Yes. This condition typically only arises when an extender is used. Note that the relevant aperture value is the maximum aperture. Even if your lens stops down to f/11, f/16, etc., what matters is the smallest f/number (largest aperture) the lens supports.

comment What apertures are required to enable autofocus, including cross-type or high-precision focusing, on Canon DSLR cameras?
@ides: Terms that compare the size of apertures, such as "at least" and "below", refers to the actual size of the aperture. Smaller f/numbers are consider to be greater than larger f/numbers, since they represent physically larger apertures. For example, f/4 is greater than f/5.6, and f/2.8 is below f/2. As such, f/4, f/2.8, etc. are considered to be within the range defined by "at least f/5.6".

comment What makes “fine art” fine art?
This definitely addresses the question in the most accurate manner. I, for one thing, consider a photograph "fine art" if it expresses some significant artistic intent.
