  • I have the image review turned off, and the focus point is immediately responsive after taking a shot . . . it's in the playback menu, not numbered. GS
  • Replied in IrfanView
    Been using Irfanview for probably 15 years, and is still my choice for resizing tiffs to jpgs after photoshop/capture nx2 work, and for slideshows/screensaver. It's fast and accurate, not to ...
  • I've had that problem as well a few months bacck, but not with DPR, it seems to have occurred only with huffingtonpost.com, but that was resolved (by firefox, I assume). The DPR problem also ...
  • Hmmm, just reloaded the page in Nightly for the hundredth time, and now it is displaying properly. GS
  • Created questions Problem with content
    I abandoned IE some time ago, preferring Firefox/Nightly, but suddenly the content is not visible in either, or Chrome, but only on IE, getting only a black background page. Anyone else, or is ...
  • Replied in Free OpenSource
    here's a free program http://digicamcontrol.com/ Works fine on my D300s gs
  • Why you're being redirected is odd . . . go here directly https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 assuming you're in the USA gs
  • Here's the bottom line on ACR 8.4.1: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2014/04/the-new-preview-feature-in-camera-raw.html gs
  • Replied in D300 problem
    Had a similar issue with my D300s; random lockup that only removing the battery would fix. Discovered that i had forgotten bracketing was set to "on", and attempting to use live view in ...
  • Your advocacy for him and his behavior and objurgation of those who don't agree with you is puzzling. While I'm not familiar with his talent, since I only visited here sporadically over the past ...
  • I've been on DPReview since 2000 and agree that the tone of some of the threads is disappointing, and your response to his unfortunate comments was not off the mark, imho. If this was his normal ...
  • Got the same offer, d/l'd and installed, played with it for a couple files, and so far don't think i'll be using it too much in my workflow. There are no strings attached as far as i can tell, ...
  • Replied in Yup
    Agreed, looks like the barred owl in wikipedia. Thanks
  • Taken 1-2-14, Dallas, OR Lumix FZ-70 First bird capture with new FZ-70, thought it was a snowy owl but researching shows it's not. Thanks
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    Owl-2
  • I can confirm the FZ70 that I received about 10 days ago does have a live histogram, though you'll need more than this to achieve high quality images from this camera. While it is live, it is too ...
  • Replied in NIK Love
    I've the new google NIK suite on both windows8 laptop and windows7 desktop — both 64 bit with no problems whatsoever on either. If you're staying away from them based on other user experiences to ...
  • My PC is similar to yours, older QuadCore, 8GB ram, WIN7 64bit, and PS CC, but my experience with ColorEfex 4, and the entire NIK suite is very responsive once it is loaded for the first time ...
  • I'm having no problems with the current version of NX2 - you can only open the processed image in PS as a TIFF - which will keep the edits. it doesn't save the .xml file like ACR. gs
  • Using 3 Samsung 32GB SDHC1 cards in my D300s with no issues. The only speed increase you'll notice is transferring the files to your computer - very fast with USB 3.0 BTW, they were about $20 ea. gs
