Inside Lightroom 2, The Serious Photographer's Guide to Lightroom Efficiency

Creator: Richard Earney | Computers - 2008-10

If you're comfortable using the basic features of Lightroom, but really want to push the envelope with this powerful software, then this is the book for you.

Publisher: Taylor & Francis

About this book
If you're comfortable using the basic features of Lightroom, but really want to push the envelope with this powerful software, Inside Lightroom by acclaimed photographer and Lightroom Beta-tester Richard Earney is a must-have. Bypassing the obvious features covered in a variety of existing Lightroom books, Richard focuses on customizing Lightroom to suit your workflow. For example, he covers using presets to automate the way Lightroom deals with photos, optimizing your Lightroom workflow for your own hardware and preferences. He covers sophisticated calibration techniques, helping you render your pictures accurately both onscreen and in print. Basically -- the hidden information for this powerful software. Unlike the other 'guides' on the market, this book doesn't tell you what you already know. Instead, it focuses on what you don't.'Inside Lightroom' also showcases new features of the software, available only in Lightroom 2.0, so if you have recently upgraded from Lightroom 1, this book will help you reap the benefits of your investment. Practical, jargon-free and full of stunning images, Richard Earney's book should be on the shelf of every Lightroom user.

The Video Game Explosion, A History from PONG to Playstation and Beyond

Creator: Mark J. P. Wolf | Games - 2008

Contains over forty essays that explore the history, popularity, and culture of video games and includes a timeline, illustrations, a glossary, and a resource guide.

Publisher: ABC-CLIO

About this book
The Video Game Explosion: A History from PONG to PlayStation and Beyond traces the growth of a global phenomenon that has become an integral part of popular culture today. All aspects of video games and gaming culture are covered inside this engaging reference, including the leading video game innovators, the technological advances that made the games of the late 1970s and those of today possible, the corporations that won and lost billions of dollars pursing this lucrative market, arcade culture, as well as the demise of free-standing video consoles and the rise of home-based and hand-held gaming devices. In the United States alone, the video game industry raked in an astonishing $12.5 billion last year, and shows no signs of slowing. Once dismissed as a fleeting fad of the young and frivolous, this booming industry has not only proven its staying power, but promises to continue driving the future of new media and emerging technologies. Today video games have become a limitless and multifaceted medium through which Fortune 50 corporations and Hollywood visionaries alike are reaching broader global audiences and influencing cultural trends at a rate unmatched by any other media.

    15 star lens!! My favorite lens!

    It's lenses like THIS lens, and the 85mm G master that need a 10 star system, so you can then give both of these lenses around 15 stars!In different situations, I beat the results with one lens or the other, but these are always the 2 lenses I try to use if I can. For video, I tend to want to use this 135mm lens over ANY other lens, and I have EXQUISITE 4K footage using the A7Rii either with an LAEA-3 adapter, OR-- if it suits your framing, use a METABONES speedbooster ultra for SONY A mount to SONY e mount, something I have not heard about anybody else doing with this lens.I can tell you, the results you get for video turning this lens into an F1.2 with the METABONES speedbooster ultra are JUST ASTONISHING, especially using either an A7Rii or A7Sii and an ATOMOS 4K recorder. I will have a link to such footage soon!

    Fantastic lens with an outstanding optical design. Worth it!

    Exceptional optical design.I use this lens with a LA-EA4 adapter on my Sony A7rii. The images are outstanding.The lens is an older screw mount design so it needs an adapter with a built in motor (LA-EA4). Focusing is noisy but the quality of the images are outstanding.I purchased this lens a while ago and is one of my favorite. I cannot justify buying the outstanding sigma 135 1.8 Art lens that just came out. I think the images are comparable. The advantage of the sigma is that with the MC-11 adapter, you could get near native AF and eye focus. So if I was purchasing now I would buy the Sigma.I will not be making the swap though.I think the Sony 135 1.8 lens will be perfect with the Sony A99II too, with fast native AF.Biggest concern is Sony's atrocious service reputation. They are terrible, I hope this lens does not need service anytime soon.From what I hear Sony's service is abysmal. They don't have their own service centers unlike... 5/5 j. salk (bay area, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent - should be about 4.7 stars

    4/5 Bill Hansen (Ithaca NY, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sony SAL18135 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens (Camera) This lens comes close to rating 5 stars for anything except professional landscape scenes on full frame cameras. I was lucky enoughto get a good used copy on Amazon. It's as sharp as the best of them in the center and along the sides (camera in landscape orientation) of the image. Only the corners are slightly soft if you "pixel peep" at 100% magnification, but in normal use this will never be noticed. It focuses much more quickly and easily than my Sony Zeiss 16-80Z lens or the Sony 55-210 E mount lens I had (and returned). Colors and contrast are excellent. It has no internal image stabilization, but that's not a serious limitation unless you feel the need to hand-hold the lens at shutter speeds "slower than the focal length". For shutter speeds equal to the focal length (example - focal length 100mm, shutter speed 1/100th second), I can hand-hold this lens and get sharp images reliably. I'll be 80 years old in a few weeks, so if I can hand hold it, so can you. Highly recommended. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 1, 2013

    Wonderful match for Alpha SLT bodies

    Much more useful than the 18-55mm kit lens. I do have to disagree with some other reviewers about where this lens is least sharp. From my images I find that a small range at about 22mm is worst for loss of edge sharpness. I find that at 135mm, where some other reviews say it's worst, I have no problems whatsoever, even using Clear Image Zoom (2X enhanced digital).The only negative so far, and it's a VERY small one, is that the release clips on the lens cap are not as easy to grip as on the 18-55mm, risking dropping the cap every time it is handled. I'm not sure why the design had to be different, except that the two lenses are made in different factories in different countries. I may hunt for a generic one that's easier to handle.The things I like over the kit lens (besides the extended zoom reach) are the much larger and longer lens hood (the one for the kit lens is much too small to be useful), and the fact that the front of the lens does not rotate when focussing,... 5/5 Mentor_Ron - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Sharp, and lite weight!

    4/5 Sushi - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sony SAL18135 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens (Camera) I bought this to replace the 18-55 kit lens on my Sony A57. I get sharper, and brighter images from 30mm on up to 135. I also noticed at 18mm, the photos take on an almost 3d look to them, the sky looks great with good depth. It has a very useful zoom range for a walk around lens, plus, you can combine it with Sonys excellent in camera 2.0x zoom, and double the lens reach from 135mm to 270!I highly recommend it over the Sony 18-55 kit lens for great pics!
