Nina, I think small pot, light and fertilizer are very important to get flowers. Galina could give more detail information for all of us...

Yes, publish photos of problem plants, I'll help with pleasure, I'll tell what I know. Not only I, but other forum members too.
About baby, I can say what they really need the light and warmth.

Hello,

I have problem with cameras. I had Kodak before, it's was not well at macro and colour. All violet colour was blue. Someone said that Canon is good for plant's photos, then I bought Canon a1100 IS. For macro photograf it is really good enough, but still I can't catch the correct violet colour. I manually programmed the settings. Only one room, and on the same table it seems so so.

Which camera is the best for true colors? It should be economic too :lol:

Dilara,
Canon is very good. I suggest to use a Canon Bridge machine.

These pictures are made with a canon bridge camera (maybe IS3): http://www.violetsaintpaulia.eu/

It's very hard to take photos of purple and bluish violets. I think the colour problem can be avoid or reduce if you use a grey card. I don't now what is the colour code of it, but maybe you can create it if you know the colour and print it out.

I read somewhere that the best color is by the camera Sigma. But they are very expensive. :(

Unfortunately, the professional cameras are very expensive. I'm using a Panasonic Lumix. It's not professional but it enough for me :)

I also vote on Canon. One of the members on the Hungarian forum is also using canon. It can take very good photos.

Camera

Postby maki01 » January 23rd, 2011, 5:16 pm

Thanks Laci, I will read my camera's manual again. There were " white balancing" function in manual mode. I didn't use it before, I will try.

I do not know too much about technical things :) I'm just a simple user of my camera. We are always learning something new.
In the next few days a new member will join the forum. He's Marcus from Germany, maybe some of you know him already. I've invited him to the forum. He's growing chimeras and wild species. How great that we're growing :-)

I planning a magazine also. It should be fine if we could create 4 magazines per year (2 at least..). I've already talked about it with Diana. We could show the society's,varietes and of course, our forum. Since the European forum is not consistent according to language we should translate the articles to every language otherwise the collector's how don't speak English won't know about us. The magazine is just a thought yet, but it would be nice if we can write articles, just to attract other enhusiasts from all overe Europe. As may you recognized language could be a problem, that's why I'm thinking about to translate it to different languages.

Thanks Galina :-) The only problem with streptocarpella is that you have to always cut back to stay compact, otherwise it will grow and grow and grow...
This one on the picture is really need a tailoring.
