The Digital Negative: Raw Image Processing in Ligh&hellip by Jeff Schewe

The author has tried hard to understand the complex science underlying digital photography. It's clear he found it a struggle (which is not a surprise: he's a photographer, not a physicist). As a result the early chapters' coverage of the fundamentals is just a little confused and not as convincing a platform as it could be for the later chapters' practical recipes. It's a valiant and useful attempt, that would be well worth another try in a second edition. Meanwhile this edition is certainly useful, and so much better than the regurgitated rubbish plucked from the air that others writing in this topic deliver.
Joseph Joseph Y-Grinder Salt and Pepper Mill - Whi&hellip by Joseph Joseph
We loved the look, but it hasn't lasted more than a few months. The pepper mill now turns without grinding (design flaw: the material used for the grinder knob is too weak so its fit with the grinding shaft has worn out). The base has chipped (design flaws: top heavy so will often fall over, body material too brittle to withstand dropping from table to floor).

13 months after we bought this printer it developed a fault and would not recognise some of the ink cartridges (genuine Canon ones). While it has any error it will not do anything - it will not print, scan, copy or fax. Canon service advised that this was a fault of the machine, not the cartridges and that it would have to be shipped to them for repair. However, the cost of the shipping and the minimum repair charge is more than the cost of the printer. So Canon advised us to throw it away. We will never buy a Canon printer again. Neither should you.
