  • Nothing so complex.  RAW goes into Lightroom.  Only create a JPG when I export and even then I hardly export, I use the built in uploader in Lightroom to push the files onto the web. Hardly ever ...
  • According to the user guide of my E-M1, the file size of a RAW is approx 17 MB and L/SF is approx 11 Mb.  Not sure how you get the idea  a JPG is 1/5 of the size, unless you are using a highly ...
  • Replied in Okay
    Technically all JPGs are made from RAW files.  In this case I shot RAW+Jpg And what does Are you typing mean ?
  • Replied in Okay
    OK then. Can't show you the most egregious example I had in mind as I have deleted the JPG but I have whipped up an example. Hope the link works as I haven't posted images here for yolks.  This is ...
  • I even posted a question like this when I got the EM-1, but I quickly realised that RAW files in LR / DxO are vastly superior to the JPG output, nice looking as it is.  The JPG files have nasty ...
  • Are you looking to take sharp photos of stars?  ( I assume you mean stars as it's hard to take photos of planets with a DSLR on it's own )  The Earth is moving which means in a long exposure over ...
  • My time spent shooting air shows on film taught me it's not about the most shots. Keep your AF tracking with a half  press and hold on the shutter and just fire bursts when the aircraft is big in ...
  • When I heard that the continuous autofocus on the original OM-D was worthless and the E-M1 worked better, plus had a better EVF, I was mostly sold. Then I tried the three models I found the E-M1 ...
  • I had a similar problem  back when I shot slide film, my entire roll looked just like those pictures. If you look at the lighting you will understand that on a day like that the sky is much ...
  • Thanks everyone for your replies.  I used to think I had to have a long zoom but nowadays I gravitate more to wide angle, so I think the RX100 will do 95% of what I need to do.  It might now blow ...
  • Created discussions RX100.3 image quality?
    Hi all Looking seriously at an RX100 mk3 when they land here. I have looked through the images on Flickr from RX100s and they look awesome. It is a little hard to tell absolute image quality from ...
  • I think we need more information on how you have everything set up - if you have studio lights, how are they connected / triggered, how are you metering, etc etc.  It really sounds like you need ...
  • So in Auto you lose access to features like White balance and Exposure compensation,  when you set it to Av mode those settings are available.  Your white balance appears different in the Av shot, ...
  • I believe it was a mistake for Olympus to design it this way, it means the body has to allow for big lenses and give the aperture lever a massive WHUMP when it wants to close the aperture. This ...
  • So I freely admit I have never used those modes except by accident when I bumped the mode dial however I was sufficiently interested when I got my first slr that I studied the manual to see what ...
  • What a waste of money!   The 800 will be much easier to learn than the 3200 as it's got proper controls, not the half-ass controls of the 3200.
  • Replied in 35mm films
    I reckon if I had 10,000 frames to scan I could get the job done in about a week. How? Pick your favorite 1000 images and scan them at web size. At a minute per frame that's about 16 to 20 hours ...
  • Replied in Film?
    You can use Fuji FP100C, available in lots of places like B&H, Adorama etc.
  • Replied in 35mm films
    You think your V is slow, I am still using the IV that I got from KEH a few years ago. Who knows how old it is yet it still runs fine although it is mind bendingly slow. I scan most stuff at lower ...
  • And just thinking through further, you can install the Google Plus ipad app and everything will be in there ----- Chris in NZ
