I am not doing any wildlife photography. I know about the crop factor. I more often use the wide angel side of my 16-85 than the teleside. People allways say that megapixels is not the only thing that counts. But 12,3 megapixels (like my D300s) is not a lot today.

Ah stupid computer, still haven't taken the time to either upgrade to OS X 10.5 or to install Ubuntu, it just seems too complicated. I know I should take the time to do it correctly, but I'll keep blaming the computer anyways :roll:

Then you could very well make the step to the D600. It will drastically improve your pictures when looking at IQ, noise performance etc etc. You even get a bit more on the wide side of your lens. Improving on MPs is not everything, but the D600 is a big improvement on the level of detail.

Im using quite some OSes at the very moment, and while 7 is fast, Linux Mint is faster. The latest Ubuntu is a different beast though: the others arent nearly as fast or stable. Ubuntu with Wine is just a dream to work with.

We have a great forum section dedicated entirely to computer hardware and operating systems:
viewforum.php?f=34

As for my thoughts: With my master thesis in full swing, and an elective with a big assignment just started, I'm starting to doubt I'll have time to take pictures the next few months. Hard work ahead!

Fujifilm X100s might be my return ticket to digital photography. Better start saving from now.. :D

Funny thing happens here, in winter we have the most sun, but still it's somewhat cold, but if you're in the sun, you'll melt :?

It is snowing here AGAIN. Really had it with the cold and the snow!!! Time for spring if you ask me, then MAYBE I can finally get some nice pictures of birds from the hide I have been visiting lately. The last couple of months I have visited the hut often, but it is just TOO DAMN COLD!!! Really looking forward to better weather... :(

Same here Mike. I want some overcast and warmer days again to hit the streets.


Out of the box thinking just saved me from a whole lot of hard work for my master thesis. Still have to get accustomed to the world of real scientific research (more of a practice guy I suppose, though I love reading theory), but found that the quote "If you can't beat them, join them" can really help out.

It's quite a dry cold here, most people tend to prefer it over a wet or damp cold, but I don't mind the added humidity. I was in Ottawa around this time last year and could walk around in a sweatshirt, I miss that mild climate...

Here in Germany we see clouds most of the time; only few sunny days within the last two months. Some rain, some snow (like today). Cold.
Then I was ill for some weeks.
Oh come on - the short version is that I didn't shoot too many pictures. :?
