To make matters worse, all cameras I've tested that offer an Adobe RGB color space erroneously identify their photos as sRGB in the EXIF metadata, even when set to Adobe RGB. "You might also be interested to know, before you buy, a little about: How much detail can you capture and scan? And other information on digital camera detail and print resolution.

When it comes to the digital SLR market, Nikon has always focused on high-end, professional models like the D2X. I bought myself last summer a Nikon D200 , which is a high performance digital SLR camera designed to satisfy the requirements of demanding photographers although I am more of a demanding amateur and enthusiast photographer. Now the launch of Nikon D300 , though in many ways simply a logical progression from the D200, is a much better camera than its predecessor, and along with its superior sensor offers the pro and advanced amateur a set of features and functionality that is unmatched at the moment in Canon's line up according to www.luminous-landscape.com. The Nikon D300 got the TIPA Awards: 2008 for the best TIPA Awards: 2008
Nikon has filled in the gap between its midrange and pro digital SLRs. The D700, announced today and slated to ship in late July 2008, looks like a D300, acts like a D3 and promises to be as big a hit as each of them. Fotosidan.se känner på Nikon D700

DigitalCameraInfo.com’s reviews are aimed at users who want a quality digital camera, but still want something that will be fun to take on a trip or take out at night. They claim that their reviews are aimed at everyday users who want to have fun with their digital camera although I miss reviews of many popular cameras like my own Canon PowerShot S-60 which was launched 4 months ago. Each DigitalCameraInfo.com review features a standard 44-point analysis that considers the camera’s image quality, handling, portability, control, ease of use, and other key areas. DigitalCameraInfo.com uses newly developed image analysis software to determine the “real resolution” of each digital camera. This cuts through manufacturing hype to tell users how crisp and sharp of an image they can really get out of each digital camera.

Great Photoshop actions for your digital camera! I bought myself SR Professional, which is an essential digital darkroom tool designed for use with all digital camera files. Since highlights are difficult to recover when not exposed properly, I have developed this tool to focus on recovering the hidden shadow detail. SR Pro replaces lengthy and complicated masking techniques, speeding your workflow and leaving you with very natural and reliable results. Is Absolutely Accurate Color Critical to Your Work? Michael Reichmann of The Luminous Landscape offers an in-depth look at digital camera profiling. He discusses the concept of device profiles, why we need them, and how to create them using inCamera Professional.

Canon EOS D30 - The Importance of White Balance. When discussing the color qualities of digital cameras one question seems to arise on a fairly regular basis, it is: " which white balance mode should I use? " Unfortunately to many the answer isn't as obvious as we might assume. Given that the question arises it is clear that many digital camera users are aware of the importance of correct white balance (WB), but many are unclear of how best it may be achieved. This essay attempts to lift the mist that has descended upon the topic.

Pro Gear Duo Memory Card Reader review. This device is a fit and forget kind of product that will definitely save you a lot of time when it comes to transferring files from your digital memory cards to your computer. The fact that it supports and works well with 10 kinds of memory formats will be great news for anyone who has a number of digital devices that all use different storage cards - photography website editors included! The Pro Gear Duo is light, portable and well-made; only the slight niggle with the USB connection spoils an otherwise impeccable performance. A highly recommended upgrade for anyone who is currently using a USB 1.0 card reader or who owns more than one type of memory card format.
Cameras are cool. But the likelihood is that you're going to want to make hard copies of those precious moments in time you have captured. You can get someone else to print them or you can print them yourself - which is a lot of fun, after all. So do your camera justice - find out the best ways to print your photos.

You can also create your own Online Photo Albums! You can sign up for your own account and get 30 megabyte of your own. You can share it with your friends, Create custom greeting cards for the holidays and much more. One other on-line albums I know about is FotoTime. One way to share your pictures on the web. Any other suggestions?
Photo Web sites fall into two categories: photo communities , which emphasize online sharing but also offer print output, and service-bureau sites (Ofoto, PhotoWorks, Shutterfly (Editors Choice), and Snappish), which have minimal sharing capabilities but specialize in creating prints and offer photo-adorned items (mugs, T-shirts, puzzles—you get the picture). Uploading, storing, and sharing are still free at most sites, which make money by running ads as well as selling prints and photo-decorated products, but you may soon have to pay for these features. Like many Web-based markets, the online photo niche has undergone changes. Smaller sites have been swallowed up by larger players (Kodak recently bought Ofoto), and others such as PhotoPoint are switching to a subscription service model or providing an infrastructure for other sites (as Zing did for Nikon's NikonNet).
