Learning photography with the Nikon D50

Learning photography with the Nikon D50. While it is a great camera and I am not a camera/techno-phobe by any means, the amount of features and possibilities of this camera overwhelm me from time to time. I would like to learn about all the features and tricks and tips and subject shooting scenarios that would help me understand aperture, shutter-speed and other photography elements better. In a click-and-learn sort of a way, almost. Naturally, this means that I find the manual and the (quite excellent) Nikon phototutor not up to the mark.

Insurance policy for cameras and laptops?

Camera & Laptop insurance? I came across a thread that begins to answer my question, but doesn't quite provide a solution.

Recommendations for a specific agency or policy would be very welcome. [more inside]

Which mini-dv/still camera

My 5 year old jvc dvm90 minidv/still camera just gave up. It's my only digital still camera, so I want to get another, but don't have much money now. I was always disappointed by the low light filming any way. So, do I get an equivalent for ~$300 or go for a used "prosumer" like the canon xi, Panasonic 953, etc. for about$450 to $500 if possible(craigslist, ebay)? [more inside]

Dedicated Camera for Copying

What is a good digital camera for doing close focus (not real macro) photos? I used to use a Sony Mavica that was outstanding at doing close focus photographs and also unintentionally created an image file file that was optimized for a laser B&W printer. These laser prints were gorgeous. The Mavica has gone the way of all Mavicas and has been tossed because of floppy drive failure. This is to be used in a home brew document copier and does not need to be one of the new high megapixle units. Color reproduction is not a major concern. It needs to be able to save a file as a TIFF for OCR conversion and have filter threads on the lens for mounting on the copier. The camera would also be much easier to use with a remote cable. Direct USB connection to a computer would be very useful. I use a Minolta A2 whose macro capabilities are dismal. (Have I been spoiled by the Mavica?) Any recommendations and suggestions?

Why digital P&Ss suffer from shutter lag?

Why do digital SLRs have no shutter lag and digital P&Ss (even expensive ones) have a bad case of it? What's the technical reason I mean (I am not an engineer)? In fact, most people who still don't like digital mention shutter lag as a major problem of digital photography. Thanks.

Looking for digital camera reccommendations for my girlfriend...

My girlfriends 23rd b-day is coming up and she has hinted at wanting a digital camera. She is not a professional photographer. She will mostly be using it for photos taken of friends, on trips, in bars, etc. So I'm basically looking for a digital camera that can be used in social situations. She will probably want one that has video mode. However, she won't like it if it is too technical. But she will want it to produce high quality images. Any suggestions? Price range up to $500.00. Prefereably, something that she can show off to her friends so they can see what a cool boyfriend she has : )

My D70 takes fuzzy pictures!

I have noticed (and other people have commented that they have seen this too) that when I take pictures with my Nikon D70 I tend to get what seems to be a haze or fuzziness on the pictures. They are still crisp but have a diffused light feeling to them. I have tried several lenses as well as removing my uv filter and nothing seems to help. Has anyone ever seen anything like this? It is very frustrating… [more inside]

Why are large format photographers in movies always depicted under the darkcloth while exposing the picture?

I have many memories of people in movies, cartoons, etc. who while taking a photograph with a view camera remained underneath the darkcloth while making the exposure. However, the film holder should be cutting off the light to the groundglass and therefore they shouldn't be able to see any image. Is this just due to the ignorance of the movie makers or is there some reason why they are depicted this way?
