In Brief

Tiffen Dfx Essentials

by George Schaub

While Tiffen made their name in Hollywood studios, the photo community always checked out Tiffen when anything from a polarizer to a center halo filter was called for in the shot. But those were the days when photographers put filters over their lens rather than gaining effects vias...

As recently as 18 months ago, a built-in image stabilizer was a rarity in digital
cameras. It was available only in a couple of Panasonic models and one Konica
Minolta DiMAGE camera. Today, an increasing number of digicams -- from four
manufacturers -- employ some form of camera shake compensating device. And there's
even a digital SLR with a built-in Anti-Shake mechanism, the Maxxum 7D. We expect
this trend to continue with other manufacturers jumping on the bandwagon. "Sounds
great if you're into high-tech gizmos," you may be thinking, "but
is this feature really necessary?"

What's My Used Camera Worth?

by George Schaub

As film cameras go down in sales and digital camera sales soar, many photographers
wonder just what their film, and indeed older digital cameras are worth. We
get emails almost every day with such queries, and while we do not or cannot
set the market price for any goods...

The promise of digital imaging is that you can get one-touch corrections on
your photographs, making it easy to create the best images you can from every
picture you take. The phrase: "I won't worry about white balance,
exposure or contrast, etc....I'll fix it in Photoshop" is commonly
heard, but it isn't always the best course. If you shoot in Raw mode you
can fix anything, even exposure compensation, later, but not everyone wants
to go through the steps of working with Raw converters and all those sliders
and options. That's where the supposed magic of "auto" fixes
come into play, and yes, there are times when it can do wonders. Today, cameras
even have auto red-eye fix and amazing adjustments for backlighting problems.

May Cover This month we explore pro raw converters and image-editing options. While our reviews feature products that pose an alternative to Adobe Photoshop, they will handle many of your image processing needs. We also explore the use of image stabilization with tripods to see if they are friends or foes. Finally, beauty shots of New York City’s Eventi Hotel/Beatrice luxury apartments were a key part of Jon Ortner’s assignment for the property developer, but to find out what inspired his on-the-fly creativity, you’ll have to get down to street level on page 120.

The pixels that make up a digital image each have an "address",
a code that defines color, brightness and shades. When we make images with a
digital camera or from film with a scanner we are creating a matrix of pixels
that altogether create the illusion of a continuous tone image. These codes
are not dyes or even densities, but specific information as to how the computer
will interpret the colors and tonal values on the screen. It is only when we
make a print that we leave the "digital" world and enter the world
of dyes and pigments. Because each pixel has a code, basically a bunch of information
that is composed of bits and bytes, we can alter that code to change the "address",
or color and tonal look of every pixel. In this lesson we'll use the Replace
Color dialog box, found in most versions of Photoshop, or under other names
in other programs, to illustrate the point and give you an easy, fun way to
play with your pictures.
