Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

comment Closeup lenses: do size affect their performance? and how?
I think that you are assuming they want to use one of the close up lenses with both lenses that they have and I don't think that is a safe assumption. I think instead they are asking if they were to use the "matching" close up lens with it's "matching" lens would they differ in performance at all?

comment Closeup lenses: do size affect their performance? and how?
I'm having a hard time believing this with the information(or lack of) provided. Can you explain a bit more in depth why the quality won't differ?

comment dropped a new fuji x100s
No, they aren't. Can you manually focus? Then you can test focus.

Really this is a duplicate of the first question I linked to...

comment What ruins undeveloped film?
@MichaelClark I'm not saying its impossible, just that I'm skeptical. Most home darkrooms are basically closets anyways!

comment What ruins undeveloped film?
@Michael I figured, but my closest still has light leaks along the floor and jams so I wouldn't call it light tight either.

comment Is there a quick fix for a DSLR which was dropped 3 feet and now won't turn on?
Well it's not like it is a Nintendo NES cartridge that you can just blow into to get working again(myth). The fix is to take it to a repair shop(timely) or buy a new camera(quick) .

comment Is it possible to adjust the user interface scaling in Lightroom on high-DPI display?
Yeah it is odd that the two won't work together on a feature that obviously has great benefits. It is also interesting that Microsoft seemingly doesn't mind Apples huge advantage on this already.

Yes that too John. I love using old expired film for example.

comment Can I use an Canon 2x Extender on my EF-S 18-135mm lens?
I would guess the 18-135mm as that is sometimes offered with the T4i.

comment Smartphone/Tablet assistant Apps
What do you mean by "help making better photos"? Do you want other apps that do exactly what shuttersnitch does, or what specific purpose are you looking for the app to fulfill? The way this is worded it seems too broad and any post processing or photography app could be a valid answer.

comment Naming of filters and effects
Matt is right. If you are wondering what post processing is required to achieve a similar look to a certain effect such as nashville that can certainly be asked here. But most preset names are just marketing terms and have no bearing on the actual processing. Sometimes they are related, but in most presets I've used they are not whatsoever.

comment What makes a DSLR camera “entry-level”?
@Jan'Saffi'Stekelgunsson You could also argue what a "pro camera" is all day and night. Sure when a brand new product category appears(or the first for Canon) the model may be the only one that exists, so it is both the entry level model and the high end model. You can poke holes through my answer but it is as simple and straight forward as I made it for every case unless we want to argue unimportant details and or examples.
