LCD Screen to Digital Photo Frame

After searching Google and the archives of AskMe, I've come across some great suggestions and ideas for making digital photo frames. From what I can determine, however, all of these require a computer of some kind built into the frame. Supposing one only has a laptop screen? Specifically, the screen from an old ThinkPad with a blown motherboard. Could I connect the monitor to my network somehow? Hook it up to some special circuit board designed for just this sort of thing?

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 : )

Why can't they make iMovie for Windows?

I need to edit some video files I've shot on my camera. The problem is that the camera's video files export as .MOV and I can't find a good entry-level Windows program that supports the file type. Could someone recommend either a program that will let me edit this file type, or a good freeware converter? And if I do change them over to .AVI, what are some recommendations for a good yet simple Windows video editor?

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]

Good photo labs that will develop and scan 35mm film

I've started into my first serious foray into amateur photography. The only fully-manual camera I could get my hands on for free is 35mm, so I'm now confronted with a problem that I haven't really ever dealt with before: where to get it developed. I want digital scans of most of my photos, for easy storage and Flickring, and there are a number of corollary requirements as well. [more inside]

Which Nikon Lense

I've decided to buy a digital Nikon SLR (lots of old lenses that will fit the digital body even though they won't work with the digital body's meter). I looked at the D100, D70, D70s and D50. I think I've decided on the D70s. Which "modern" Nikon lens should I buy to go with it? There is a 24-85mm with a 2.8 - 4.0 fstop that looks good. Any suggestions regarding the best "all-around" lens or any reasons I should look at a model other than the D70s?

Online Photo Labs

I have 500+ digital pictures from our wedding/honeymoon. I want to have them printed, and I don't have a photo printer. What are your experiences with the online photo printer places - shutterfly, ofoto, etc.? Would I be better off just buying a photo printer? Mostly I just want basic 4x6 prints to put in a book; a few I want to have blown up.

Is this camera as good as it looks?

My digital camera died and I'm in the market for a new one. I was always leaving my old one at home because it was not slim enough to fit comfortably in my pocket. So I'm looking for a really slim one. I just found info on the Samsung Digimax #1. It looks so cool. http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/peripherals/storage/samsung-digimax-1-teaser-104790.php http://www.dpreview.com/news/0505/05052404samsung_1.asp http://www.samsungcamera.co.kr/swf/zoomin_785_258_050523.swf

Can anyone tell me more about this camera? I could not find, for example, the actual zoom in any of the specs. Or the price when it comes out on June 1st. I’m totally okay spending a little more for a slim camera or a cool looking camera but I want to make sure it works well. Ideally, I’d pre-order it so I’d get it in time for an event on June 11th.

Best way to carry multiple Canon dSLR batteries in camera bag?

I've moved from a low end digital camera recently to the 1st generation Canon Rebel dSLR. The old camera took AA battery's so there was tons of advice out there on how best to store them so you don't short anything out, and sort them so you know which have been used at a glance. personally i liked using little plastic carriers that held two each - when i used the batteries (but before i re-charged them) i would flip one so the pos/neg ends were opposite (did that make sense?) Anyone have any suggestions of a way to achieve the same with propritary batteries like canon's? To sum up: a) how to carry them w/o worrying about shorting out or knocking around in the camera bag, and b) quick way to know which ones are dead and which are good. Thanks!

Digital Picture Frames

What's your verdict on digital picture frames? I have been largely unimpressed until I came across this -- a steep investment but tempting nonetheless for a photophile like me. Right now, I'm loving the slide show screensaver on my PC but it still sits there in the office, apart from the mainstream of the house. I have more than 10,000 images and it would be nice to display them dynamically in a classy setting. Tiny table top frames just don't seem to cut it. Would I be throwing too much at this? What works for you?

LCD Discrepancy?

When taking photos with my digital camera (Canon Powershot A75) images often look great on the LCD and then not-so-great when I actually get them onto my computer. Most notably, when taking B&W photos in relatively low-light they will look fantastic on the LCD and then just BLACK on my computer. I can usually make the image sort-of useable by photoshoping the levels, but then it gets real grainy. Is there anything that I can do to get a more accurate preview from the LCD or do I just have to accept the fact that it lies? Tips on dealing with this? [more inside]

Digital Camera

I have about $150-$200 to spend on my first digital camera and have no idea what to buy. I am looking for 3+ megapixels and an optical zoom, portability, good memory and battery and nothing too complicated. Basically just for family stuff, but my old automatic was some big fancy thing that took awesome shots, so I am a little spoiled.

Help me find a specific clock for my house...

Some years ago I saw a clock, which appeared to be made from 'valves' sticking out of a metal block...inside the valves was an old fashioned illuminated number. So the clock was digital, with old fashioned (think 60's space programme) orange digits...it was quite expensive, and now I have gainful employment and a half-decent house to put in, I want to track one down. Any ideas?

Digital photography workflow on a Macintosh

I am a Macintosh user who has just acquired a Nikon D70 digital SLR. Most of my photography experience is with film-based equipment; I have no experience maintaining a collection of digital photos. The software bundled with the camera seems questionable, and iPhoto drives me nuts. What do other amateur (or professional) photographers use to manage their photographs? Will iPhoto do the job? What habits should I develop? What software should I use? Any tips or tricks to help ease me into the world of digital photography?

Which manufacturers make well-built home theater equipment at a reasonable price?

Over the past several years, I have been burned by poor quality in home electronics from various manufacturers. I have purchased pieces by Sony (home stereo), Panasonic (theatre-in-a-box) and RCA (various pieces of junk), and all have given out in one way or another far too quickly for my liking. In a renewed attempt to build a proper home theatre system (DVD/CD, receiver, speakers, etc), and recognizing that I haven't the money for really high-end stuff but will avoid anything cheap, I seek outside opinions as to which manufacturers are making products that are of reasonable quality, and reasonably priced. Your experiences, please.
