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.

I'm moving to Boston in the next couple of months. Is there a good, big photography store in or around the city? Not just the local Ritz to get my film developed; I'm thinking somewhere with the technical breadth of B&H in New York. I'd like to be able to get 120 film, used lenses, developing chemicals, etc. Any suggestions? (I realize I can order from B&H online, but finding somewhere local would be preferable.)

Hello all, I am having trouble find a place that rents out digital cameras. I am looking to either rent a Nikon D50, D70, or D100 or possibly, a Canon Digital Rebel XT. (Renting time-frame, 2-3 days.) I am wondering if anyone had any experience with renting high-end digital cams such as these and which place I should trust. I called up a couple of places where I live (Boston, MASS) and none of them offered this.

My camera recently ate a month's worth of intense picture-taking! About 90% were salvaged by imgsave, but of course the remaining 10% are the best or most important. Each of those broken images completely draws as a thumbnail, but only partially renders when opened. There is no apparent consistency to how much is drawn or which pictures were eaten. [more inside]

A few years ago I read an online article that explained that the common belief that the moon appears larger at the horizon because the Earth's atmosphere acts as a magnifying lens is wrong, and that this effect is due to an optical illusion caused by moon's visual proximity to much closer objects on the horizon. However... [more inside]
Photography question: an article in Spin in the 80s discussed a French photographer's blurred pictures of jazz musicians in motion. Very similar to Charles Peterson's photos. I wrote to the gallery then, but I have no idea who it was now. Any clues to who this was? My Spin collection has long been sold to Half-Priced Books.
