Dammy,

Remember, these are not full-fledged shows, they are Technology events. The distinction being that on Fridays, the systems are usually shown and demonstrated to local and government businesses who might have a reason to want to view and consider the possibilities. Saturdays (if it's a two-day show) are usually open to the public. From what I understand from the last few events, the Official days are usually considerably larger.

I would have been at one or two events, but have been busy putting together web pages :)

Someone needs to turn on anti-redeye on the camera, and if its a digital camera get it
checked out some of the pictures are alarmingly underexposed.

@DaveP,

These are not professional photographers taking the pictures. In most cases, the pictures are submitted to us by show attendees. :)

There aren't any official door numbers - people just came in and out as they pleased. We had two formal presentations - the rest of the time people could sit down, actually use a Pegasos/MorphOS or Pegasos/Linux or Pegasos/MacOnLinux machine for themselves or corner any of of us at the event for a chat.

You can get a good idea of the event from Dan Miller's write up - he did a nice job on that.

To be honest, the pictures from the DC technology event look more "crowded" than just about any Amiga show this year.

I think people expect cheap tacky digital cameras to work better than cheap tacky 35mm cameras. They don't. Sticking a "Digital" label on something is no guarantee of quality, or even minimal functioning.

Hence underexposed images with redeye, and much lower resolution than 35mm.

You don't want to try that at AOS4 events.

Although the advantage of digital is that you can easily do some post-processing yourself. I think someone should have taken a few minutes to work over some of these photos with an image program, correcting brightness, sharpening some, fixing the red-eyes. You can compensate somewhat for dodgy originals.

I'd hope that people do some research and find the camera that best suits their needs. However, we know that isn't the case. I know myself I tried to buy the best digital camera I could afford and a few years later after some more experience and savings I bought the camera that made the most sense for my purpose.

Underexposed images could be problems with the camera and processing or could be the selections the user made.

Red-eye is a problem quite a few cameras have. Many newer cameras strobe their flash to help minimize it but it can still happen. It seems that most digital cameras I've seen tend towards red-eye creation.

As for lower resolution then a 35mm there's nothing wrong with that it all depends on what your purpose is. If your purpose is high quality Newspaper quality photography then yes you'll be needing a high Megapixel, friends I know use a 12Megapixel camera for this purpose. However, if your purpose is 1"x2" images for websites viewed at monitor resolutions, 72dpi, a 2Megapixel camera can be overkill and is definitely under 35mm resolutions.

Almost every film processing shop will make you a CD of JPGs from the film at a low price. But it would be better to get the exposure right in the first place.

Both of these are caused by relying on dinky little flash units built into the camera. These flashes are just toys.

What is needed is a fast film or a digital camera with a more sensitive sensor. So far digital cameras appear to be less sensitive than fast films.

There is if you want to enlarge part of the image.

In reply to Comment 23 (Don Cox):
Yes if you want to enlarge part of the image there may be a problem with not doing 35mm. Once again it depends on how much larger and for what purpose. If you want to enlarge a part a LOT then 35mm may be insufficent.

Don did you read the last half of the sentence you only quoted the first half? "...wrong with that it all depends on what your purpose is." Or did you read the few lines after that which essentially explained your statement already?

Cripes, it looks like there were under 10 people there. Why didn't you just hold the event at a garage sale or something? At least then you would have had a few more people in the background.
