    Basically all I know about PP was sharpening, cloning (so to remove the bloody hot pixel in my cam), adding or removing contrast, cut down on noise and thats it. I don't even know the basic of layering and stuff like that

    Anyway, i am a very very lazy person, I just do basic conversion of the RAW file to JPEG, resize it and then upload it (of course with the normal sharpening and stuff like that). Last time I did a bit of stitching... now I don't even do that anymore (beauty of the UWA. hahahahaha!)

    BTW... I am no pro... still learning. Rahulv is the pro here. He is really good with his shots...

    Bro... just focus on getting the hand in one PP program and forget about the others. For some DXO is a great tool, for others, GIMP is good enough and yet for others, Photoshops and lightroom, etc...

    Yeah. UWA is a very good tool, but it is not a die die must have type of tool, it depend on what you intend to shoot. For me I purposely get the Tokina 12-24mm (other than it is the cheapest I can afford) was that it had a 24mm range, which is good for street photography too... and focusing speed is good

    Photoshop CS5 (non-student version) is selling at US$650.73 from amazon, might get cheaper or more expensive if you buy from local store in Singapore.

    You tell me how do you find that price. For the professionals who are using this software for their bread and butter, that price is not too high. For me... Nah... too expensive. I would use the free version - GIMP.

    Class 10 refers to minimum write speed which is 10MB per second. Mine basically max speed is 30MB per second while the next higher end is 95MB per second.
