  • Interesting idea-- would you be thinking that these pixels are interpolated from their neighbors to create the final image, but also providing local exposure control?  Maybe as an attempt to ...
  • You do realize that the backwards incompatibility of 6.0 only serves to prove my point, right?  If they truly were separate processing chains, then the way that raws from other cameras are ...
  • All of the dots appear to be the same value; can you make an image with just those dots?  If there were some correlation with the underlying data, then it might be tempting to say that they were ...
  • Is that true for S type as well?  I have hazy, ten year old recollections of being able to save multiple resolutions in the same TIFF file and having that be part of the standard, but I'm not ...
  • I have no idea, but you're clearly wrong-- if images imported into SPP are changed, then they aren't leaving old images alone. I have no idea why they would do this, but it's clear that they (he? ...
  • Can you take advantage of multi-resolution image storage (ie, pyramids) in TIFF? http://iipimage.sourceforge.net/documentation/images/ Or how about class S for separated images? http://www.libtiff. ...
  • Pretty poor software design if that's the case.  There should be a way to tag what camera the photo came from, and if it's not a quattro, the logic should be not to mess with it. But you and I have ...
  • I've run it on both windows and mac, and find it to be equally (un)stable on both platforms. To really increase the stability of SPP on the mac, you may want to try deleting your library file ...
  • If that's really the case, it sounds like the Merrill is the right one for me.  After all, creating an oil-painting effect from a detailed picture is really straightforward ( here 's a simplistic ...
  • Not all screens are sRGB. Here's one .  And another . They are super useful for a bunch of reasons, not least of which is making good prints.  If you're not printing much, then I guess sticking to ...
  • These images ...  the only word that comes to mind is 'mundane.'  They are in no way inspirational to me.  They do not want make me want to buy the camera-- they highlight a number of flaws in the ...
  • Glad I'm not the only one who thinks SPP is not the best.
  • I think your problem is not Vista (although, to be frankly honest, you should give 7 a whirl, it is better in almost every way), but rather with 2gb of RAM. SPP is hungry. Try paring down the ...
  • Let me reiterate. 1) SPP is terrible 2) I hate it 2a) I am not alone in my hatred 3) I want to get away from it 4) DNG seems like a way to do that 5) There seems to be a general consensus (well, ...
  • OK. Setting aside, for a second, how the Fuji sensor is octagonal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_CCD) and so therefore falling under the category of 'weird', or how full multi-channel tiffs ...
  • How do you figure? According to the documentation I've read, DNG is an extension off of TIFF 6.0, which certainly supports many different channels of the same image. According to that page you ...
  • It was meant to be more tongue-in-cheek than anything else.  No offense meant. But as I've pointed out, I do have a beef with having to have workarounds in the first place :)
  • I think that the discrepancy comes in assuming that Sigma would stick with the X3F format in the first place :) To my mind, they should instead adopt the DNG standard wholeheartedly, with no ...
  • Write it down?  What is this, the 20th century?
  • See my other response, where I talk about various sections of the standard that would apply here.  TIFFs were made for this kind of thing, and DNG is based off of TIFF. Seriously, it's not like ...
