Hi Everyone: I am reading conflicting information reading regarding using Nikon's Snapbridge with a D7500. Can one transfer photos from the camera to a smartphone with files larger than 2mb? How about in Wifi? Thanks, Bob
Hi Everyone: Want to buy a new Nikon, D3500, or D7500, or D500 just to transfer pictures to my new smartphone. I am totally confused as to the differences in the systems. Using Snapbridge I read all the pictures are sent in only 2mb (something) not in 20. How do you get a quality picture transferred, etc. Please give me pointers in what to look for and any advise. I am totally confused as to how this transfer thing works!! Thanks so much for your help. Bob
Hi Everyone: What is the closest replacement to PICASA. Please do not include PS Elements. I use Picasa to store and edit. Thanks Bob
If you zoom in on the titles of his books in the background on the top shelf, you'll see a book by Benny Hinn and another one by Joyce Myers! I can't read another one well, but I think it is by Crefflo Dollar. Blessings, Bob
Is there something inherently wrong with Elements?
I just find the learning cure to be too long for this old man. I don't need half of what it does! I have it on my computer and have spent hours trying to figure all of it out. Most of my body is working pretty well, but I think I am losing my mind!! Bob
Hi Everyone: What's the best SIMPLE, free or not, replacement for PICASA that modifies and catalogs pictures other than Adobe Elements or something in the cloud? Also can PICASA on a Windows 7 computer be switched to the same computer to Windows 10 at the end of this year when Microsoft no longer will support Windows 7? Thanks Bob
I really appreciated your pictures considering that I live in Florida and have forgotten what snow and mountains look like! Nice pictures. Especially during the next few weeks, let us all remember that "Jesus is the reason.............." Blessings: Bob
Hi Edr: For 15 years I was the NY State Coordinator for CMA. I went to hundreds of biker events and personally started about 10 chapters in NY plus about another 4 in Florida where I now live. At the time, I was not too concerned with photography. I am now kicking myself in the head! The color full people, bikes, and events would surely be exactly what I am now looking for. I traveled about 50,000 miles a year on a bike going to biker events representing and coordinating CMA events in the northeast. The local CMA chapter here in Fort Myers, which I started about ten years ago, just does not have enough weekly action to warrant my invovlement. Actually this biker/picture thing is exactly what I am trying to duplicate without traveling all over, I'm now 75 years old! As to Kairos, I am their local chaplain in my prison. They do a good work, but you are correct. No pictures allowed other than a group shot three times a year at the last Sunday services. Thanks for trying to help. Blessings: Bob
Hi Rpavich: Your idea is good and not so out there, BUT I am already sort of doing that. I am a Chaplain in a Florida prison and deal with about 300 out of the 1200 men in my prison. I have 1000s of pictures of me and them or just them. They know that if they come to me for counseling or to discuss spiritual matters, they will get a picture or as many copies as they want for their relatives. It's really a big deal for them and great memories for me. They come for the picture. They get the Gospel. We have numerous ex child molesters and ex murders whos lives have been transformed by the Gospel. Some want to be pastors! Almost everyone in my prison, saved or unsaved, would know names like RC Sproul or McArthur!
I love taking pictures. I love Jesus and all things Christian. I am looking for a Christian theme to keep me busy in my old age. I don't want to shoot flowers ,insects, landscapes, or animals. I have ruled out churches and crosses. Things like Christian signs on buildings, Christian motorcyclists back patches are more what I am thinking of. Maybe trying to capture the love, mercy, or faith of Christians in some way. Any help would sure be appreciated. Blessings. Bob
A Nikon Digital Field Guide by Dennis Thomas for my D3300 says that "The brightness and saturation options are unavailable when you turn on Active D Lighting". I can't find that anywhere else or in the results of the final pictures taken. Is he correct? Thanks Bob
Hi Everyone: Just saw a Tony Northrup You Tube in which he says my Nikon kit lens, 18 X 55 can only resolve 9mp in my camera which is 24mp and that because of my cheap lens I am losing effectively 15mp. He says this comes from a DxO rating on the lens. Is this true?
Hi Everyone: For 50 years I have looking thru the viewfinder of numerous SLRs and DSLRs. When I wear my polarized sunglasses, the picture gets a little darker. Just bought a Sony A6000 with an EVF. Even with the brightness control set to brightest, the picture is very very dark. Had to return the camera since much of my shooting here in Florida is out on a boat or in bright sun where I always wear polarized sunglasses (better to see the fish with!). Is this with all EVFs? Anyone have this same experience? Thanks Bob P.S. Have a great Thanksgiving. As citizens of the US, we have much to be thankful for!
