...spell their names, brush their teeth, and learn how to use the toilet.
Things that even some 5th graders in my wife's school can't do yet. This is SE N.Carolina (yes not SC but close enough).
How do people expect them to use a computer when its covered in shit?
lets hope this doesn't turn into the cluster-f that we have with justice data. A schema the length of the bible, 4 different versions that no one is sure which to use, and a competing system running down the same path.
And this is all dealing with intra-governmental agencies! No private sector here.
Very true, my friends always assumed I'd love to win the lottery, then I'd have time to design and code apps that I wanted to....
don't get me wrong, I want to win the lottery BUT
after doing this day in and day out for years...I don't think I'd open another IDE again.
I think its just a difference in terminology.
Its also in important difference as marketing departments have put digital zooming on the same plain as optical zooming. Which it isn't.
Digital zoom - as far as P/S cameras is zooming in farther than the optical zoom allows, a crop
Crop - post process digital manipulation.
Ease up on the coffee...you might pop a vessel or something....geez.
There's a reason why many cameras have a 3x zoom, its difficult to engineer a zoom lens with greater range. Just look at many decent zoom lenses for DSLRs, 17-55, 70-200, 100-400...these are 3x and 4x lenses....very good image quality....even a "kit" lens isn't all that bad 18-85 (5x)....
Canon makes a 28-300 L lens thats a 11x lens but of course costs $2500
My guess that even at the optical 12x part of your zoom, image quality is pretty bad.
back in the film days you also went out and spent money on a little cartridge aka "Film". Digital days, your camera is the "film".
I don't care what kind of camera/AF/lenses you have, it could be a Canon F1, with L lenses, if you are shooting crappy Fuji Film 800 your photos are going to look crappy, no matter how spot on your exposure is.
I have a 10 year old 80-200 f/2.8L lens, shoots as sharp today as it did back when i got it.
