  • Commented on LEAP challenge

    Why only 50 entries?

  • Added 15 photos to their gallery
  • My NX2k's AWB is also a bit off (fortunately - very consistently so). I have adjusted the AWB to G+1 and B+1 and it is now spot on. I shoot RAW and use Lightroom - don't know if these settings ...
  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Have we seen any of your work with all this expensive gear or you're just rich and desperately need to shout it out?

  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Have we seen any of your work with all this expensive gear or you have just gotten rich recently and desperately need to shout it out?

  • Guys, I thing your discussion is pointless. There are professional photographers making a living with any brand of gear imaginable. Only the amateurs are obsessed with brands and specs. The pros ...
  • I've updated the firmware on my nx2k several times already and never had this problem. Have you tried updating through iLauncher?
  • Nice one, Neymar :-))))))
  • I would love to see a picture of you shooting with the GM1, please :-)
  • There is nothing really new about GM1 other than its size (relative to sensor size) to make it a game changer. To me it is a confused concept - it's too small and ergonomically challenged for ...
  • I have two lenses (20-50 & 20) and none of them appears in the Lens Profiles Menu. Still, they both seem to be automatically corrected (for distortion, at least). Check the review of your ...

  • And one other thing - the Auto WB on my NX2000 is a bit off, fortunately - very consistently so. Adjusting G+1 and B+1 in camera makes it spot on in 90% of the shots, which is amazingly high rate ...
  • It has the exact same sensor and smaller non-touch screen. I prefer the touch interface to the physical buttons (might be minority, though). The 20-50 appears to be sharper than the new zoom ...
  • Thanks, Simon - yours are great too. I see we like the same type of processing :-)
  • That's true - you get better colours out of ViewNX (yet the pale skin still looks waxy and the highlights clip ugly) but it is so painfully slow and limited that having to use it almost defeats ...
  • Don't know about NX300 but my NX2000 has an option to assign "digital zoom" to an iFn lens ring. I never never actually used "Digital zoom" as it is basically cropping and it is much easier and ...
  • ... oh, and BTW I was also using a polariser - no amount of processing can get the same result with sky, sea, trees and skin
  • Thank you for your kind words, Neil. Don't know about other Nikons but the raw files from the d3100 were not responding particularly well to any processing. The skin colours were particularly ugly ...
  • I'm sorry, spitfire, but I'm afraid you have compl!etely missed my point again and I don't believe in "third time's the charm" :-)
    Have a nice day,
