I've got a MSc in Electrical Engineering, and I'm currently a trainee at the Technische Universiteit of Eindhoven (TU/e) in a program called Smart Energy Buildings and Cities, where I'm doing a project with NXP Semiconductors.

I love basketball, bikes, outdoor life, travelling, movies, photography, and - last but not least - reading.

Community moderator on Electrical Engineering since August 2012.

comment Why do people recommend 50mm or other prime lenses as starting lenses for learning photography?
@PatFarrell it's not a marketing problem but a technological problem: as in common DSLRs the flange distance is around 40-50 mm, it's more difficult to produce good lenses with a shorter focal distance.

comment How can I get better results photographing dry erase boards?
Very pretty result! But it may be worth mentioning that the first picture is already good enough for reading the content

comment What is the Rule of Odds?
How is the rule affected by the use of DOF? E.g, if I have a set of objects of which only one is in focus, will it matter how many they are?

comment Fuji X100s: Why are high ISO settings (>6400) only available in JPEG and not in RAW?
Guessing: it may be because the extra ISO is obtained by compressing the dynamic range, thus RAW format doesn't actually gain anything by pushing further.

comment How can a speedbooster improve the light performance of a lens?
So this also factors for what are advantages of mirrorless cameras with respect to DSLRs. I'd love to have one ;)

comment How could film compact cameras set exposure?
It was a Nikon, now I can't remember the model but it was a cheap plasticky thing, without any settings that I can remember. I can't find any picture, but for sure the lens was fixed and without AF. It used batteries but only for the flash IIRC.

comment Does a larger sensor resolution increase the difficulty of shooting hand-held?
I'm not sure but to me it seems that you swapped focal lengths: it's 80 mm on full frame and 50 on crop, isn't it?

@PhilipKendall what else do you recommend besides dpreview?

It's a fairly broad question, but there is plenty of books/ebooks out there ;)

comment Why am I having trouble getting sharp results with my new DSLR, compared to a point and shoot?
When you say 'M' for manual, do you mean the camera mode or also the autofocus?

In fact a 18-55 would be a good idea price-wise. Since the D70 has a built-in AF motor, are there 18-55s without motor?

comment How to denoise a dark photo with extremely high ISO?
Honestly I think that the corrected image looks worse than the original, as the background noise becomes like larger "blobs" that result more noticeable. And in the hair you can see the edge of the correction.
