General Stock Discussion / Moneybookers vs. Paypal
« on: April 15, 2008, 06:45 »

I noticed in my last payout that paypal was taking a lot of the fees through bad currency rates and fees. I estimate that i lose about 10-15% of my income to paypal, which isn't ideal.

Has anyone had a better experience with moneybookers? Is moneybookers compatible with paypal?

Hi again,

Would like to know if anyone could offer some input on whether to go for a Canon prime wide angle lens (24mm f/1.4) or the similarly priced Canon L 24-70mm f/2.8??

I'm looking to get one before I head off on a trekking and safari trip in Africa within a couple of months. So, I'd like something that could capture some very sharp landscapes. I'm worried about the sharpness difference between the prime and the zoom, after having been using a Canon L 28-70mm lately and not being all that impressed.

Has anyone used the 24mm f/1.4? With which body?

I'm mostly worried about the sharpness of the 24-70mm at the the wider zoom, where it will get much more use.

I have a sigma 10-20mm, which is good fun with the extra width, but its not all that sharp at all.


Software - General / Lightroom vs. Aperture
« on: March 29, 2008, 04:40 »

I've recently started using Aperture, switching over from using Lightroom for processing and storing RAW files. This was after getting a couple of rejections on istock for artifacts. Has anyone else noticed Lightroom producing artifacts when exporting to JPG?

And for those who use these programs more intensively than i do, whats your preference?? Pros, cons..

I've used Capture One Pro a bit too, but don't feel very comfortable in it. Is there a good reason to use that over the other two?

Thanks for your input
