I offered an Experiment that you can do with normal household items. Then I put pictures for the proof since no-one is willing to do the experiment.

Maybe if you switch your channel to reality, you will understand.

Then again the stuff i am slinging here, you really don't even need to read my posts. Since all i will be doing is taking advantage of you.

EDIT: I didn't made a generic statement and my point was towards errors but due to pleasent music it might be hard for you to comprehend.

I was specifically talking about ADC's in Imaging Sensors. But your own posts makes it clear that how confiused you are yourself about ADC's. Nothing wrong, majority stay confused when it comes to Sampling rate and Aliasing.

How do you explain continuous operation when you yourself said there is no continuous operation???

But since u put the point of different uses, you should also put forward the different structures and types and Quantization error and then would like to explain how dithering will affect the HOT pixels.

If you read your post again, you contradict yourself, then again, you always jump the gun and edit later. Oh well, you edited it already.

I am happy, even if you didn't learnt anything, you got entertained. Don't worry, you put a valid point for others to think the operation of ADC's. Now atleast someone will jump out of the safety zone and start researching and learning

I don't intend to fight over this. Please do not think so foolishly that myself and other people around do not know about what we are talking about. I am an electronics engineer.

Now, this is not for you, for the other poor readers to understand.

I took three shots of the same subject in RAW with three different WB settings - this was how these were displayed in the camera LCD. I have written the White Balance setting at the time of shooting under each pic.

The DSLR Thread-wbinlcd.jpg

Now these are those three individual shots with white balance corrected to achieve the exact same white balance look.

Again Dear readers, WB settings at the time of RAW shooting does not matter at all.

Excellent, since your an electronics engineer you should be able to explain it better than me. I did study physics at RMIT but that was only as a hobby and interest and i am no electronics engineer.

My question stands.

Altough you felt i was making fun, I am actually not making fun of your post. I am being quite serious.

And I am sorry you again failed to understand my point. The experiment was to work with different lights while shooting and not different settings. While we shoot at studio, our setting stay same, f5.6, 1/250, Custom White Balance (according to the strobes) at ISO 100. You should try it again but this time put a blue and a green plastic bag over the lamp. Then try adjusting it.

Again, I am sorry if you feel i was making fun, I surely am not.

Thanks

Sad to hear this. Wish you a speedy recovery. And yes, I was expecting a long reply from you.

Remember what I said before and reply keeping that very fact in mind.

Few points here:

1. There are members who are into photography in their own way. They do it because they love the subject.

2. There could be only two reasons for them to know more than what they know now. (A) They have shot something and they feel it can be bettered but they donít know how. (B) They have some technical issues regarding their equipments or post processing and what have you.

3. And there are members who want to buy cameras and start shooting what they like.

4. Barring few, none of them are going to take photography as their profession.

5. Not many are going to break their head for getting some great prints on archival papers. Hobby and cost equation for that simply doesnít work in this country. Majority is not going to invest on high quality colour calibrated monitor and super duper machine. For them itís a luxury beyond any emotional justification.

6. In todayís context sharing and exchanging photos through internet is the key. No wonder one doesnít get to see a good colour lab or good a printing set up so easily any more. Sharing images on internet does not require massive technical knowledge or so called proper equipment. So while telling somebody ďI use Cooper's Hill method or PEC pads. But both are a bit expensiveĒ sounds truly off tune.

7. Share something here which all can learn from. Guide people properly to take good pictures. Show them. Not through site links but what youíve done to achieve that. Thatís whatís needed.

8. Do not worry too much. Share with open heart. Thatís why we are here.

9. One who is too insistent on his own views, finds few to agree with him. - Lao Tzu (Check internet if you don't know who's this)

Quote:
Yes Hot pixels appear on the same place.
Well if you insist. I say no here.
Quote:
Did you bothered to notice that all of the supposed hot pixels in your pictures are in DARK SPOTS.
I did. In fact I didnít post few pictures where I saw hot pixels in different areas. That makes no difference. I know why hot pixels happen and I also know how to get rid of them before handing them over to my clients.
Quote:
You should read on ADC errors then.
Iíve read ADC errors. So how does that improve my shooting situation? I need to do what I need to do within that given time and money.

Can you point out other REAL COLOR CALIBRATION any members here can perform in REAL LIFE without buying units like Colormunki/Spyder3. I only put up the example and experiment in HOPE to teach members to get FREE CALIBRATION which otherwise they cannot afford.

This is exactly what Iím suggesting. Take note.

it_inspector, few more points before I close this reply after a long tiring day.

1.Once again be real.
2.Observe the ground. Assimilate. Reply. Suggest.
3.Internet is not the answer for every photography situation.
4.Share if you can. Not from internet. Anybody can go there if one wishes. Share your experience, that is.

This is my last and final reply to your post/s. Be real once again.
And get well soon.

@Rudra Sen

First of all I never expected you to answer and its not changing anytime soon.

Secondly I know who Lao Tzu is, but i believe in something else.

Third, I am not going to bother to reply to you as you changed more than half the things you said yourself.

And the fact is, I have had enough of Moderators here, People who break sentences to make there own meaning and bend rules to set double standards.

I will say one thing however, point i put forward with "Big Issue" was that when Amateur's are given proper chance and push, they can create something extraordinary. But you said yourself that the pics were not extraordinary. I say you failed to understand the pics.

It wasn't me or those Amateurs, it was those people who woke up 2am to collect food from the restaurents and spend there valueble time to create food for the homeless and they were all there feeding the homeless in those pictures. It was the 55yr old playing football to raise awareness and the organisers who kicked out Professionals and lost money to make a stand, but like I said you missed it.

Nothing bad about it, your just being a traditional indian. A traditional Indian professional who knows what to do to earn money but not really how to take the profession to next generation for the fear of loosing the money.

Cheers

Are you talking about their effort? Yes I can empathize. And about those snaps? Theyíre nice and clean event records and nothing more than that.
And yes it is my own view and understanding. You donít necessarily have to agree here.

Of course I am a traditional Indian and Iím proud about that. And about my professional side? Letís keep that out of this thread and forum.

And let me point this out that youíve made a comment without knowing me or my background.

This is the wikipedia article about defective pixels
Defective pixel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This makes a passing reference to CCDs. Now lets find what this article is about? Well its about a standard called ISO-13406-2
Now lets find out what is this standard
ISO 13406-2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ISO 13406-2:2001 - Ergonomic requirements for work with visual displays based on flat panels -- Part 2: Ergonomic requirements for flat panel displays

This standard does not care, or even mention CCDs or Camera sensors. This is entirely about Flat Panel displays!
But unfortunately, all the "FACTS" about hot pixels in cameras are being quoted from this article.

But you cannot argue against someone who has made up his mind.

Please do not burn your DMC on my account. The "hot pixels" noticed by me were on a 46" LCD TV. the memmory chip from the camera was stuck in to a 60GB PS3 machine (I believe the new PS3s do not have a memory card reader) and the PS3 was connected to a TV. Maybe what I saw was not hot pixels but they did not appear in the smae place and there are many photos that did not have any visible hot pixels.

I prefer to focus on the subject. I really wish cameras had software inside them that could eliminate noises of this sort.

guys, this discussion is going south. you're just gonna scare them members away! most of what you guys have been arguing about (99% of it) has gone way over our heads (at least mine), so what was the point of it to begin with? i don't think it contributed to anything. me thinks this kind of argument should be taken offline. IMHO.

now, can we all just end this argument about who's right and who's not?

sometimes, being right is not always right. food for thought.

This is the worst and the most immature thing I have ever read in this entire forum till today.

We are here to learn from each other, so whats there to waste so much of energy and time to prove oneself right ? If you tell me "shaju, you are totally wrong", either I must prove it right in a single post with enough examples or just leave it for another ocasion. I think this back to back post is going on from last 3 pages and I can gurantee not a single reader of my grade would understand any head or tail out of all this, forget benefitting from it.

I agree with Shaju. The funny part is that most of us here discuss camera and technology to such a large extent but not composition techniques and styles. And I believe in "An acre of performance is worth a world of promises". Honestly, going through the links might help me understand all the stuff written here, but would it make me a better photographer? I doubt. And when I finally get there and I know what I want to shoot, would I still care? May be yes, may be not. Finally, it's the photograph and the story behind evey photo that matters to me. I'd never look at a photograph and ask custom WB or fixed it in PS? I don't care.

I have become very quiet in this thread because of the same reason. Wish we discussed composition as fiercely as camera technology. However, composition can't be googled, it has to be felt.
