    You are behaving childish by comparing camera shake and poor focus with well
    focused images. Now go out and play with the other kids of your age...

  3. I just asked you, what has a 2x2 RGGB grid pixel to do with Bayer?
    Since you can't even give a straight answer to a simple question, I'll
    answer it for you; nothing.

  4. Silly me, I thought the 10D had AF too.
    George Preddy, Jan 31, 2004
  5. Use a faster shutter next time. Use 1/focal length x 1.6 so at 50mm that
    would be 50 * 1.6 = 1/80s or faster. Or upgrade to 28-135mm IS USM.
    This picture is must have been converted from RAW to jpg with
    Photoshop CS. The red is far too pale to have been done with FVU or

    Right on both counts: You're silly and the 10D has AF.

  7. You wouldn't know it had AF. Look at every pic in the gallery, the 10D
    missed every single one by a mile. Really blurry camera, worst of all the
    Bayer DSLRs and that is saying a lot.

  9. Photoshop's RAW converter is garbage, unfortunately. So, no.

  10. Yes, the Canon's skin tones are horrid.

    yes george, sunset adds yellow unless you balance for it.

    but george, did you look at the image identified as sigma?
    a really ghastly attempt to render skin tones.
    they look like they are about to throw up.

  12. The Canon is 10X worse.

    actually, no.

    not even close, to anyone who understands
    the nature of the color balance.

    have you ever worked with critical color balancing?
    the way you talk here, you do not seem very experienced.

    anyone can balance the canon image,
    it was just taken in light of a low color temp.

    the sigma shows a sickly greenish face color,
    which anyone can see is sickly and unnatural.
    Crownfield, Jan 31, 2004
  14. It has nothing to do with color balance, because the 10D bright neon cheese
    skin colors are all blown and severely clipped.

    ok, george. obviously you are all sound and fury,
    signifying nothing.
    your opinions, stated as facts,
    are so obviously ignorant and untrue,
    and so far out of touch with the real world
    as to make them worthless in a real world.

  16. I can
    muse endlessly too
    about things unrelated
    to anything
    discussed in the message
    to which I reply
    but I choose not to.

  17. Downloaded and checked the picture. Found no clipping. The red channel (the
    brightest one in the faces) was well below 250 everywhere. Moreover, it was
    rather easy to make it look good with less red and more blue.

  18. Post your idea of good, please.

    People might, if only you stopped lying, so I guess it will never happen,
    will it?

    Bart van der Wolf, Feb 1, 2004
  20. -20 red and +10 blue in photoshop, applied to mid and high tones
    is one suggestion.
