  • Created discussions DP3M does the Foo Fighters
    I know the limitations present in these photos - for which I accept full responsibility, too busy having a great time to put any effort into taking more than some snap shots when I could ;-) Nick
  • Replied in Small(ish) world
    Didn't realise where you lived - I used to go to College Station to do fire fighting. Went 8 or 9 times over the years. Took my DP2s last time I was there and even got to have trips to Austin and ...
  • There are odd haloes round some edges and a lot of fine noise grain - is this normal for the Quattro files ? Having said that I like it and it's good to see you becoming more mobile, Nick
  • Replied in Why can't they ?
    I can think of reasons why they won't but none for why they can't. Curious as to why you think they might be unable to share, Nick
  • Replied in Ahh my mistake,
    It's absolutely brilliant :-) Nick
  • It might just work if you got rid of that hair falling across her eye, but even then I'm not sure I'd want it on my wall. Nick
  • Instead of saying that issues had been resolved - they haven't - why not tell the OP what your experience has been ? :-) I keep forgetting what thin skins people have on here, especially when ...
  • The impression I got was that dave was claiming the RAWs were no longer compressed which isn't the case. It may or may not be an issue to the OP - depends on how the camera is used - but I think ...
  • But the RAWs can cause some problems in limited circumstances. The evidence is out there :-) I just felt it was important to clarify that the RAWs are still compressed, your post gave me the ...
  • dave has made the claim that RAW files are no longer compressed - I don't believe that's true and I've asked for some evidence to back up his claim. Seems reasonable to me - make a claim and back ...
  • That's an interesting point of view - perhaps you could explain how RAWs are no longer compressed ? Nick
  • Great camera, even if you don't like it you wouldn't lose much if you chose to sell it. Can't believe you've retired an E-1, I still get mine out from time to time. Probably the nicest tactile ...
  • Replied in Nah ...
    Stick a Foveon insinde an Fuji X-T1, even better. Though I will concede IBIS would be handy :-) I've been asking for something like this for years, as have others. Sigma either won't or can't ...
  • As far as I can tell the lens is out resolving the sensor where it is in focus. Any more sharpness than that is academic ;-) Nick
  • Replied in Apart from AF,
    You'd be nearly as well served by any number of 90-100mm MF macro lenses from times gone by. Those would also give you much nicer MF focussing. All for about 1/10th of the price ( including adapter ...
  • Replied in OM100 f2 (n/t)

  • Or is it fools seldom differ ? :-) Is there a proverb about 2 proverbs that contradict each other ? Off the top of my head there is Too many cooks spoiling the broth vs Many hands making light work ...
  • It was considered to be too strong for the "weaker" sex to wear - strange but true :-) Excellent shots, as always, Nick EDIT - a link for the doubters ;-) ...
  • Replied in I loathe SPP ...
    But from my rather limited testing I found it gave the best results so I use SPP to create a TIFF, almost always with its default settings and then export to Aperture for any editing and for ...
