depends. although there are a few photographers i know that work in africa and other exotic photographic places, and they take 50GB+ of pics per month's trip; they obviously are very busy all the time and cannot spend time editing (since their time abroad is literally money), therefore all their $$$ is spent on new technology which makes it so that they don't need to do much, if any, post-editing.

i hope they turn out decent, i always loved looking a photos in that SQUARE FORMAT..especially in FILM
yes! square film is deliciousness, especially from my yashica (mat-124 like yours). i love the non-sharpness of it, lomography ftw. however i don't know much about TLR's, i've only recently started reading about them.

i really dont know how to use this thing. haha i thought it would be as easy to use as the D50.
also, the pop-up flash isnt as good as the one on the D50. is that because the D50 is 1/500 and the D80 isn't?
idk. someone hit me up with a pm please? haha
i hope i dont regret buying this D80... i might be though... lol
edit: should i shoot on medium instead of large on my d80?
vividness can be changed when you're editing on any program, but i'm not sure what you mean by "it's not as sharp" as your d50...are you using the autofocusing correctly? or are you focusing too closely? also what do you mean the pop-up flash isn't "as good," do you mean that it doesn't go as far, or...? let me know and i *may* be able to help. lastly - what do you mean should you shoot medium instead of large? are you talking about photo size? your post is completely confusing, no offense
if you're talking about size, then shoot whatever size you want, i usually shoot as large as possible so if i need to make large prints later i'll be able to do so with the least compromise in sharpness. but if you're going to keep them on the computer, medium, or even small, should be perfectly fine.

As always C&C are welcome as that will only help me develope the skill .... I'm just a n00b trying to stay alive in this world .. LOL
Here is the normal exposure for this shoot ..
hmm this doesn't seem like a good HDR composition; usually it's shot where colors are really wild in person (sunset, sunrise). the background here is a dark cloudy sky, not really HDR material. however the final pic looks fine (i love star lights!), it's just not really something to use HDR on. i've personally have had difficulty with HDR, i've been a bit lazy recently with digital and have been mostly shooting medium format film for an upcoming gallery, but i'll try to do some new HDR pics soon...

the rest are on my flickr if you wanna check them out.
love expired film, i had a kodachrome from 1992 or so. unfortunately i was shooting a ton of film for a certain project and forgot that i had NOT used the roll, i thought it was a bit weird that the tab was sticking out when i sent it in!!!

i really don't like my D80 right now. what a waste. hahaah
there is a vividness setting on most nikons, and you should be able to tune vividness down by turning down that setting. i've found that canons don't have this problem which is probably the only reason i'd get a canon over a nikon (dSLR wise).

the main reason why im looking to sell it is becuase i borrowed money from my girlfriend's sister (because i'm selling shoes and i'm getting basically "guaranteed" money) but DUDE FREAKING FLAKED ON ME. so now im gonna be short like $100 haha. so yeahh i'm just looking for money now.
stupid impulse buys....http://niketalk.com/topic/139634
yea if you're satisfied with the d50, STICK WITH IT!!! i've told people a million times, it's not really "upgrading" a camera if you don't like it. stick to the medium that you know and can max it out. cameras are simply a means to and end, not an end to themselves, so if you don't like how the means are, then you should definitely stick with the means that you like (in this case, your d50). i "upgraded" to film medium formats because i really like square photos, and i personally love natural landscapes, and film gives me what i want: great colors and definitions and shadows without breaking the bank or with a lot of editing.
IMO, especially as an amateur, the most important end product is a picture YOU like, not what someone tries to sell you, what some "professional" knows and tries to impose on you.
