Raynox DCR for 72mm lens

May 14, 2012   //   by NG   //   Photography Gears  //  No Comments
Raynox DCR-5320Pro: This is a native 72mm set of converters with a 2 and a 3 dioptre pair.


The DCR-5320PRO High Definition Macro Conversion lens is particularly designed to use with the high-end digital, film and hi-vision cameras, resulting in a resolution power of 200L/mm at center (MTF 30%) with a low dispersion. With the Macro lens attached on the camera’s lens, it makes possible to approach the object very close for macro shooting. The model consists of two independent lenses, one is with 2-diopter magnification and the other with 3-diopter. It also makes a 5-diopter lens by coupling the both lenses together. Taking advantage of using in three ways, you can shoot the object at the distances of either 50cm or 30cm or 17cm, depending upon the nature of a subject. All lens glass elements are fully coated for the maximum light transmits and fine image quality.

Lightroom has encountered problems reading this JPEG photo

Mar 25, 2012   //   by NG   //   Photography Tips  //  No Comments

In case you have encountered this error i.e. “Lightroom has encountered problems reading this JPEG photo“, then do following,

1. Run disk checker utility; if you are using Mac, then run disk utility and verify the disk, if you are lucky enough then disk utility will not display any error and you can proceed to next step, otherwise if it reports any error like “some bad sectors”, then you need to take immediate action, which should be taking backup of your files and fixing the disk error (for mac users, check my article to use Recovery HD on Lion)
