Henry Falkner's recent activity

  • Yesterday and today I did more shots comparing the SH-2 with the SH-1. From those I conclude that - RAW does answer the question - 'What does the camera actually see?' The answer is - It sees all ...
  • The closest SH-1 picture with the Auckland city lights reflecting in the harbour is this one - Burning, PSE7 Levels 0 0.80 255, -BLUE Below is the processed SH-2 picture from last Thursday - WB ...
  • Here is a camera size harbour night shot without processing, except compression - This one was cropped at the top and to the left for centring. PSE13 Lighting Levels is 0 0.85 225 - I have rendered ...
  • Replied in I got the SH-2
    Thank you I have not attempted to re-save in the *.ORF format. For that I would have to look at the Olympus Viewer software supplied on the DVD that comes with the camera. Have I understood your ...
  • Replied in I got the SH-2
    On the harbour night video last night I did not have to process against noise in the blacks, and there is a lot less flaring in the highlights. Most of the neon signs are readable without burning. ...
  • Sandra bought a Smart TV for the dining room, and said 'It would be hypocritical of me to stop you from buying the new camera. Raw is worth having, and the JPEGS don't fall apart at 300% viewing. L ...
  • Your government may have to be blamed for this one. It sees ISIS everywhere. However, what killed Facebook for me was them claiming copy right on whatever photos and videos I put up. Henry
  • No. I have a friend who was a member of a photo club that indulged in the Canon versus Nikon rivalry. He then used Nikon 35mm SLRs. His first digital camera was an Olympus SZ-30MR pocket travel ...

  • For me, a P&S is a pocket travel zoom - and my experience is limited to Olympus. Their best pocket P&S series to date is the SH range. I have just bought the SH-2, which has RAW. Compared to other ...
  • For just about a year I have praised the SH-1 for its (idiot-)user friendliness and reliability, while admitting that at magnifications above 100% the SH-1 renditions fall apart with abrupt ...
  • Created discussions I got the SH-2
    While I still drool over the moon pictures out of the Nikon P900, the reports suggest it is not yet a finished product. It is also not a go-anywhere-in-any-situation camera. Picture yesterday - on ...
  • Replied in Coming up
    I will do an SH-2 post in a couple of minutes. Henry
  • Thank you Larry. I compared these shots with those from three years ago - but the weather was not the same. Those tinted windows do terrible things to the seeing of a digital camera. Once you get ...
  • Created discussions SH-1 - On the Sky Tower
    The Sky Tower in Auckland has visitor galleries. It is part of the Sky City event centre, which also has a casino. Last time I went there was in May 2012, with the SZ-30MR. Here is a view looking ...
  • First my history. I switched from the 520mm maximum Olympus SP-570UZ bridge camera, when they brought out 600mm maximum pocket travel zooms (minus a hot shoe and an EVF, but with HD video). Now I ...
  • Some people in this forum reported that firmware v1.1 works for them, one or two reported that repairs were also needed, for which spares were not immediately available. Here in New Zealand, Photo ...
  • I select images taken with my 16 MP Olympus SH-1 pocket travel zoom for printing to 33x23 inches. I enlarge the originals x3, so the Fuji printing kiosk does not introduce stair cases (seen with a ...
  • We have a rental business, and I take the pictures for our rental adverts. I use a pocket travel zoom (Olympus SH-1) which has a 25mm (35 equivalent) wide angle setting. I use the fill-in setting ...
