Thanks, everybody.  I'll look at those sites.  If it requires much
computer knowledge I'm dead in the water.

I've been thinking about deep sixing this thing anyway.  I was
reading something by a man recently who said he didn't own a
computer and wasn't going to buy one because they haven't finished
inventing them yet.  He said every company on the planet has a
department for fixing them.  Nobody has a department for fixing
pencils.  Man after my own heart.

Why, Donald! You're really a Luddite, are you? What a revelation!

Quite frequently I think how nice it would be if Alexander G. Bell
had been executed.

Please don't leave - I seriously love your pictures and your piquant
sense of humour - it would be a very sad day if you took yourself off
from our Cafe.

I use Flickr exclusively, because I know how.

I learned how to use a computer when I was in my early fifties, in
spite of the fact that I knew that it was a stupid waste of time.
There was obviously no future for this shit; I was not enamored of
playing games, calling people in Estonia to chat, or organizing the
pencils on my desk onto spreadsheets.

Then someone (I forget who) told me that you could fix badly exposed
or poorly composed pictures on a computer. You could combine two
pictures and make one that wasn't really there. I was hooked, and now
I actually know more about some programs (Photoshop) than my
grandchildren.

But I sill get off on Fleetwood Mac...

My Nikon 9300 prove less than satisfactory to me and Costco once
again has become the proud owner thereof.  Lots of the cameras have
video capability.  Some are 1080, some are 720.  Other than the
price differential and 360 in arithmetic, what do those figures mean?

The higher the number the higher the resolution and the sharper the
picture, generally speaking...

The higher resolution is worth it.

Thanks.  I don't know the resolution of my Kodak.  It still works,
but I get a lot of interference in certain places now.  Thought if I
got a new one it may not be victimized by whatever gremlins are
there.

Many dslrs have video now and you can shoot video with all the great
glass you bought for your still shots. I'm probably going to upgrade
one of my Sony's this year due one of those.

I bought it for size and video.  Can stick it in a pocket, take a
good still or a movie.  My D60 is stills only.  I saw one Sony
recently that will fit in a shirt pocket and has quite a bit of
capability.

I have a waterproof point and shoot that I use for fishing and hiking
trips, a Panasonic, and its ok for snapshots and video , but once you
get used to good glass, those itty bitty lenses are always
disappointing.

Hi
Any digital photographers had problems with lens dust?

--------

{Photography.2.543}: annie {oceanannie} Tue, 11 Dec 2012 22:16:50 CST (1 line)

Not me, just the odd fingerprint!

{Photography.2.544}: TJ {tj2} Tue, 11 Dec 2012 23:42:08 CST (1 line)

The dust may be on your sensor, not your lens.

I usually have a brush with me for dust on the outside of the lens, but that dust doesn't show on the picture anyway, I think.

When I switched to digital this spring, I thought I finally would get rid of the dust on the scans. Of course I did, but I didn't know about sensor dust, or dust on the glass in front of the sensor. It shows on pictures taken with small apertures, especially with short focal lengths. But it seems that blowing air helps a lot. I use a rubber balloon meant for earwax removal. My camera also has a feature for shaking the dust off, but it doesn't seem to be as effective.

Methods for cleaning digital cameras.
