What was the first digital camera in space? It turns out in 1991 NASA sent a modified Nikon F3 with small Kodak CCD sensor and external processing unit on a shuttle mission. Called the Hawkeye II, this system used a RS-232 serial port to connect to its external gear. Kodak would use this platform as the basis for the DCS system, the first commercially available digital camera. Learn more

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM 'Art' lab test report
17 Apr, 2014 - 5:47 PM - by FeedBot
Click to toggle zoom

The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM 'Art' is a fast normal prime for full frame cameras, with an unusually complex optical design. Its premium price tag of $950 / £850 makes it substantially more expensive than either its predecessor, or Canon and Nikon's 50mm F1.4 lenses. However Sigma's recent high-end offerings such as the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM and 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM have been truly excellent, so how does the new 50mm measure up? See the lens test data and our analysis

The 50mm F1.4 DG HSM is Sigma's latest fast normal prime for full-frame cameras, and one of the most hotly-anticipated lenses of the year. But how does it perform in real-world use? We've been using the lens for a couple of days, and put together a gallery of samples. We've concentrated on large-aperture shots to show sharpness and bokeh, but have also included several taken at smaller apertures. See photos

Help with Critiquing Images
Many members seem to find it difficult to critique other people's images - so I thought it may be helpful to have some people upload an image and do their own critique as a way of teaching other people...'how to do it'

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS TO SEE IF THESE WILL UPLOAD OK ONTO THE SITE - please be patient while I work out best sizes for iviewing etc.

Uploading Images for CRITIQUE
I am working on an info article on HOW TO UPLOAD IMAGES FOR CRITIQUE.....there are some adjustments still to be made to 'tidy up' the article and I am sure there must be a better way to display it, but this should now be able to be read as a guide to follow, if you are struggling with uploading images.

Let me know if you have any problems
