Great site Gordon, I haven't watched all the tutorials yet, but they sure are interesting.
I only have one comment: please consider to change the blue colour of the site. The red of cameralabs is good, very good, but the blue is a bit too bright.
Love the rest of the site though, great!

Bonsoir Gordon,

If you're looking for ideas... Here are some
  • taking fireworks pictures
  • playing with depth of field
  • choosing the right lens
  • composing a picture


I really appreciate the comparison between before and after :) .

Is there a forum planned for DLRS Tips or is the Camera Labs forum shared between both sites :?:

Best regards,

Hi everyone, thanks for your comments!

Daniel, they use different style sheets so the designs could be independant, but we'd probably keep them the same.

Bjorn - sorry, the blue stays!

Bart - good idea, but not sure how to implement it - maybe via the forum.

Rei - great ideas for workshops and a few of them are already on the to-do list! As for two forums, we'll just keep the one at Cameralabs for now - managing two would take so much time, I'd never be writing of filming any new content!

PS - Happy New Year!

Gordon,

One forum for CameraLabs and DSLR Tips is better :!: Otherwise, I would have to replicate my postings :(

Bonne année :)

DSLR Tips sounds like a good name for a monthly magazine publication :twisted:

Could send me some very expensive Canon gear to *coughplaywith* test 8)

In all seriousness - it does sound like a good idea for a magazine, although with sales declining year on year (last time i checked anyway) for magazine media, might bot be the best way to go, although an Online publication avaliable in Flash or PDF format would get rid of costs inolved with printing and distrabution (to a certain extent) and let more money be spent on the advertisement and quality of the content.

I realise I'm totally jumping the gun as it where, but online content supported entirely by advertisements and sponsors is a popular solution for online media.

Just an idea :D [at my aunties house so I've got to think of stuff to keep myself ammused.]

Yup, exactly my thought! But Gordon could perhaps open a new section in the Camera Labs forum by the name of "DSLR-tips, questions and discussions".
This way everything will stay together, but there is a dedicated place for those threads :idea: :!: :D

Yeah, the photo's could be posted on the forum and after a month or 2 you could place the most interesting photo's with the tutorial.

I don't know how you do it (I always complain about having enough time for me), but cheers, this is a must read for enthusiasts. I'll bring some myself.

I would like to read sometime in the future your tips for:

* Portraits
* Wedding photography
* Best equipment for the different types of photography

Congrats once again

hello

maybeuploading the videos in higher definition would be better beacuse with dhowing the pictures we know youtube downgrades quality


heres the how to- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08NI4cy4zik


example 1 without being changed - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfO2tvIZ2Go

explale 2 higher defenition - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bgnwetyKI8


i dont know if you want to waste your time on this but i think it would really help

note i didnt make either of those they were posted on another forum i use

Ah yeah you can see the difference, especially on full screen view.

Stage6 allow higher resolution videos, up to 480p I think. (840x480 being the 16:9 EDTV resolution might be 848...) but thats perhaps more hassle than its worth...on the upside we can use that at school lol!

that's why he does a full review which includes crops of the certain parts etc. Which I prefer to read anyway for a more detailed look.

The second paragraph references photos as below left and right, I believe it should say above left and right.
