Why oh why did you do that to the HAF?

 

That side fan is one of the best things about it, that and big side windows look ugly when you can see every component in the pc :P

 

I've had the HAF since its release, it was getting stale and tbh that tiny side window and huge mess of mesh started to shit me off. I'm pretty sure it looks a hell of a lot better in real life next to other peoples HAFs at LAN, well it gets complimented at least :)

 

Very little difference to temps also. Cases are a personal thing, each to their own I like huge windows :)

Fair enough. I quite liked my HAF, running dual cards with that side fan on made a huge difference to temps too, but you're right, to each their own.

You know, for a 'gallery', there's a lot of horrible phone pics in here.

Who has taken pics with their phone?

 

So far I'm counting a Blackberry 8520, and a Samsung F480 and S8300.

 

Glad to see another Nikon shooter in the thread though, even if his gear is better than mine :p

Same way I know you're using a Canon Ixus 100!

 

It's called EXIF data dude, and it's written by most modern digicams. Right click one of your photos (use an unaltered one for this experiment, some editing programs strip the data), click the Details tab, and there you have it, all the info you'll ever need. It's good practice to strip the data from iPhone photos, as by default they record the GPS coordinates of the location the pic was taken. You know, privacy, and all that.

 

I use it to keep a record of the settings used to take a photo, to get better at judging correct exposure by eye and to ensure consistent results when taking batches of photos.

most my pics have been striped of there data but the cameras would have been

nikon dx2

lumix fz28 & fz20

i should probably put more effort into the pics but its harder when you dont have a good light

may see what my little sis can do tomorrow with her d300 if she has the time

 

any tips for taking a nice case shot in low light? other than tripod low iso

Ok i see i can strip it out with Irfan View. I've selected that option now as default so it (EXIF Data) shouldn't be there on further posted pics. Thanks for the tip, much appreciated!

Yeah, I'd be over the moon if I had one of those. 1 HD 4850 is enough, but 512MB is too little for 1080p gaming

 

Any way, here is my Dads/Spare/Lan PC

As you can see, it plays Crysis extremely well, SO well in fact, it has horizontal tearing and makes the high pitched noise usually heard when running 3DMark03 with ~1000FPS, do to the ridiculously high FPS she's getting :p

 

Specs are

Make: Dell Latitude C610

CPU: Pentium III M 1GHz

Ram: 256MB PC133

GPU: ATI Mobilty Radeon (The Very First One!!!)

any tips for taking a nice case shot in low light? other than tripod low iso

You'll need a higher ISO (as high as you can go without the shot being too noisy/grainy) to shoot without a tripod, and taking the camera off automatic is a good way to start. Aim for a shutter speed of around 1/15 if you can manage it - you'll need to hold the camera reaaaaaally still, but it should be brightly lit.

 

Another way to avoid the tripod is just to put the camera on a pile of boxes, and throw it on self-timer for ten seconds. Set up the shot, put your Aperture (it'll look like f8.0 or similar) up as high as you can, hit the go button, wait for it to be done. If the light isn't bright enough then you can wave a lamp around the case while the shutter is open. But see what you get on auto, it might be alright.

some nice tips for people thanks

 

hmm waiving the lamp around is a interesting idea

f8 aperture gives you more depth of field but lets in less light from memory vs something like f2.8 so f8 is what you want to keep everything sharp if the camera is steady

i have a tripod and just said low iso as the lumix cameras seem to get a bit of noise in low light regardless so they need it apparently some newer higher quality cameras can run a fairly high iso with minimal noise though

No worries, I used that lamp waving idea for the first shot in my post, it was just one of those spotlight reading ones held far away, and I moved it roughly evenly over the case. Tricky, but when you don't have great lighting it can get you a nice result. Mine was actually taken in a completely dark room!

 

And yes, generally the higher the f-stop the sharper the image will be. It really depends on the camera, like you've said, but you've gotta pay buttloads more to get a camera that isn't very noisy at high ISO (like Canon's 5D MkII...drool). Lenses count as well!
