There you go :p

Need to either convert my camera to IR or buy an already converted one, quality is not the best using a phone and a 3"x3" filter held to the lens

Simple tripod works, too. I had an IR filter... never really got into it. Was sure neat, though.

I think I'm going to invest in an entry level DSLR, found a couple for ?280, the NIKON D3100 looks fairly nice

I don't have the EXIF data handy. I did a little bit of work in Lightroom.

Nikon D5100.

I wonder how many of us have the classic "train tracks fading into the DOF distance" shot? :)

For a little more (or a similar price) you can get yourself a 40D, jump in at the deep end and you'll have a better quality camera for when you get better. Also ensure that you give each camera a go, if you can find your local camera stores, go in and ask to try some of the cameras out, you'll get a feel for which you like and which you don't. In the end this is what made my decision between Canon and Nikon.

Being a longtime Nikon shooter and working for a company that shoots with every Canon product made in the last 10 years, here's what I've found:

1.) Canon has marginally better lenses (in terms of selection, quality and pricing).

2.) Nikon has marginally better bodies (in terms of performance/ease of use).

Because of this, I think Nikon's (marginally) easier to start with.

Similar to Canon's 40D, Nikon has: D5100 D5000 D7000 D90 D300 at various price ranges.

Bottom line: They both get the job done effectively, and you'll likely be happy either way. As Chase said, go play with them in the store if you're stuck.

While I haven't handled as much Canon bodies as much a you, every single model i've used feels "flimsy" and a bit "lesser" construction wise ( 7d, mark II, rebel, xt and xs).

Though on the lens selection, wouldn't nikon have more if you count old F mounts? ( Which do work, just won't autofocus on entry level bodies)? And Canon bodies EF will not mount on EF-S without an adapter?

The bodies seem to be built plenty strong to me. No high-tech equipment is designed to be dropped, though :p

For lens selection, I'm specifically referring to the current line up, but yea old lenses work too.

Nikon's F mount has been around for 50+ years, and Canon's EF mount has been around for over 25 years. I think 25 years is plenty sufficient time to build up a large selection of older lenses. It's very rare for people to use lenses more than 10 years old on mid to upper range bodies (which is what I listed) because the differences in quality will become too apparent. That is, unless you don't care about image quality at a technical level.

The first photo... tell south street officials that they should add "park" to that... so it should display like this: South Park Street.

:-P

The second photo, next time you go to take picture like that, use a tripod because I noticed the car lights go wavy.

Good photos, though.

I got it refurbed from B&H for $1599 + grip/extra battery/8gb SD card. Shipped all for under $1975.

EXIF info are pulled from the photo and placed it on the photo via variables... for example: ($d) for date, etc.. Easier for me... That way, I don't have to write them down and then write them on the post all over again.... so the EXIF are already on the photo... save time.

      Gallery: Microsoft dresses up E3 booth in black, showcases One S, Sea of Thieves and more
      by Timi Cantisano



      Over the past couple of years, Neowin has provided virtual booth tours by publishing galleries of Microsoft's Xbox booth at E3. This year, the booth offers a more matured look, as the company has strayed from emblazoning the setup in "Xbox Green", and has instead, opted to go with a simple black motif.



      Although some of the first signage you'll see entering the Xbox booth is for Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3, make no mistake, the Xbox One S is the first main attraction booth visitors will be greeted by, and it is fantastic. Although you cannot lay hands on the newly announced console, it's still a sight to behold and looks mesmerizing from every angle.



      Pushing deeper into the booth, kiosks to play the aforementioned Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 become available, along with other titles announced at the Xbox E3 Briefing. Ghost Recon Wildlands, Cuphead, The Turing Test are just some of the titles available to play when roaming around the show floor.



      Perhaps one of the more interesting parts of the Xbox experience at E3 is the Xbox Design Lab nook that allowed attendees to get their hands on sample customized controllers, and even take time to create their own custom controller on the Design Lab website.

      Although Xbox owners have a lot to look forward to in 2016, many will already be thinking much further down the road at 2017, when Microsoft's next console, Project Scorpio will be released. But until then, enjoy our booth gallery.

      Is any JSON gurus around? I use JSON library for my website gallery pages and everything up to thumbnails #9 works great. The problem starts when I click on thumbnail #10 (4-th row the first image from the left). When I click on it, it supposed to open the block with bigger image and additional text but it does not show anything, same for the thumbnail #20. If user clicks on thumbnail #11, it will show big image and text that correspond to thumbnails #1. My guess is  - JavaScript doesn't read 2 digits and reads only the one from right only: "10 "reads like  "0"; "11", "21" reads like "1".
      Anyone can point me how to fix it in my code? I would appreciate any advice or help.
      For each page I have group of files  - php (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/gallery-still-life.php), which works as an html and 2 files with javaScript coding (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/js/still-life-function.js  http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/json/still-life.json )
       
      Thank you.

      Even more images of Nokia's 'Moonraker' smartwatch show up
      by Vlad Dudau



      The competition in the smartwatch market may just be heating up, but one device that will never get to compete is Nokia’s canceled “Moonraker” watch.

      We first heard of the device last summer, when some leaked render shots showed what could have been if Microsoft had ever let this device come to market. But since then, images of the prototype smartwatch have continued to show up, including an entire gallery which we published a couple of days ago.

      But if that didn’t satisfy your needs, we’ve got even more images of the “Moonraker” watch today, seemingly following on from the previous showcase. As you can see in the images, which come from China, the device is shown in full detail, including some of its internals.

      There’s even a side by side comparison of the watch’s power port next to a power port of a supposed Lumia tablet. The device in question does seem to follow the Nokia/Lumia design aesthetic we’re used to, but whether this is the old 8-inch mini tablet from back in 2013 or the newer Mercury tablet from last year is hard to say.

      In either case, that’s pretty much a moot point at this time as Microsoft is focusing all of its wearable efforts on the Band 2, while today’s Nokia seems to have very little interest in consumer devices.

      Welcome to the Neowin photo gallery! Here you can post your pictures and discuss your photography techniques.

      Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.

      I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

      Try to put more details from your camera settings (EXIF) and also talk about what you have done with Photoshop (or similar).
      There are a lot of photographers here that like your editing skills and would like to learn more.

      The previous thread can be found here.

      Posting your photos is made easier thanks to a member contribution! Argote created a Flickr to IPB webapp, thanks! [direct link to app]
