Alfred's recent activity

  • Replied in Indoors
    This I took just after having bought the camera. No PP needed. Commonly I would though now reduce in camera sharpening from its default and add some back when deciding how to print. And here an ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    High ISO Cat: No proof without cat.
  • Still available. Relates to high ISO.
  • Replied in HDR and DRO ?
    Accessible via Quick Navi or you can assign a key, e.g. the "?" to call it directly.
  • Yes - a bit. Go to camera settings ISO, choose [Multiframe-RM]. The camera will then shoot rapidly several frames and combine them to reduce random noise. This of course reduces how fast you are ...
  • Printed to A3+ (13x19") the IQ is detailed and looks overall very good (even nose to paper). I also enlarged to A0 at 240 ppi with Genuine Fractals i.e. to 118.9x84.1cm (33x47") and printed then a ...
  • I will print one today to A3+. Let's see.
  • The camera feels solid and still fits in a shirt pocket. The first pictures look quite good. I'll have to do some more testing, particularly at longer focal lengths and at higher ISOs. Full size, ...

    DSC00755: Test at around 250mm focal length (35mm eq.)

    Downtown: Out of camera jpg. Default settings.
  • Replied in Neither
    No, in the original picture the face looks overexposed and might print with loss of transitions to the lightest portions of the face - even if there is still information in the file. I referred ...
  • Replied in too bright?
    Indeed - No overexposure. Purely judging on-screen (mine) I would prefer a version similar to the sample below where I used a different tone curve. Of course your printing workflow, screen ...
  • I would second what Tedolph says. Consider also the EM10, or if you need the all-weather capabilities of the EM5 alternatively the original EM5 that  is now often available with good discounts. It ...
  • Indeed, Walter. Exactly my experience too.
  • I made some time ago my own comparison of color rendition, comparing a 5DIII with a D800. My main conclusions were: - Both cameras are well calibrated (within the accuracy of my test). The Nikon ...
  • 4), 5), 6) and 7) are not really needed. You can manage without. But try it, it is a valuable practice. To take a really bad picture, not just a technical flop (under or overexposed e.g.), can be ...
  • Replied in Can confirm
    Now at 20.48, the slowdown makes the site again unusable. Calling "http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/55263381" e.g. does not get any response, neither going back to the forum was possible. After ...
  • Replied in Can confirm
    Currently (Monday 20.15 CET), also from Switzerland, I had several very slow responses of 20s or so. Calling e.g. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1018 resulted several times, after about half a ...
  • I would opt for the Pentax Q with the standard prime for starters. It is solid, yet pocketable, has many functions of full size DSLRs or mirrorless and the quality it can produce is quite ...
  • I use the Olympus Pen E-P5 for travel. My wife the OMD E-M5. We can share the lenses then. The selection of lenses is large and can cater for most tastes. Focus is blazingly fast and all lenses ...
