Keithgg: I definitely see one of these in my future, once somebody else has ironed out any possible bugs.
Roll on next Spring
P.S. WEX and Park are both quoting £1600 body only price. Better than I feared.
With VAT and the current exchange rate, we are still paying a £270 premium over the US price. Now if there was a new 100-400 zoom, that would have been a very tempting bundle. Using it with the old 100-400, would make it as unresponsive a combination as the 7D and 100-400.I will wait.
Beat Traveller: Always enjoy these old photo galleries.
YesThe present nearly always seems banal, as it is so familiar. Old photos are of a distant time and distance nearly always lends enchantment.There was a set of colour pictures from prewar England that were equally enchanting M Engles
spitfire31: "And since light field cameras capture 3D data through a single lens, it'd be much easier to shoot 3D films - all of the parallax problems presented by stereoscopic cameras would disappear."This I don't understand. 3D is 3D BECAUSE of parallax, corresponding to roughly the distance between the eyes.
How can a single lens on a static camera provide two different viewpoints necessary for the brain to reconstruct a 3D experience?
If you close one eye, does the world go flat? You still see depth, but the effect is not as good as with two eyes.Our eyes/brains do the same thing.
Picture 23, Why can I not find round specs like those?Very nice set of images. Old pictures do not need to be 'arty', the sense of place and time is enough.Mike
drshuayb: I purchased Lightroom 5 recently and I opened a few raw images of my living room on it and I have to say that canon's digital photo professional program rendered the colors (especially the leather couch) almost perfectly whereas LR gave my couch much more yellow to it than it actually is. Any suggestions please??
I do find that is a curious statement as I have just done a comparison with a virual copy. All parameters default, just varied the process version. To my eyes 2012 is much less yellow, than 2010 or 2003. Playing with the quarter tones would have no effect on the colour. a different calibration would have more effect.
Spectro: this is actually a useful article. Most of the tip article in the past yo have to dig around on this site. Most people using photoshop might already now this, but still good for beginners.
I don't think that this was mentioned, but you can use curves and levels to adjust the layer mask directly and that you can add to a layer mask by experimenting with the various gradient options like overlay and multiply.
Reilly Diefenbach: Now this I can see, especially for $49. Lightroom's ease of use instead of the clunky DXO interface and as good or better geometric correction. Good idea.
Thanks for your reply.I would really like to try the plugin for Lightroom, but it will not load,see previous message.What is the name of the plugin and what folder is it in, as perhaps the installer has not actually installed the plugin?
Hello OlivierGot your reply, I was looking in the wrong place.It would be good to try out the plugin in Lightroom, but as far as i can see it does not offer any more than the correction tools in Photoshop, so would not be inclined to buy the plugin at UKP49
Still no message. Why not post it here? Also could you give me the folder and the name of the plugin to see if it has been installed? As I said the Photoshop plugin has been installed.
I have not had your reply to my emai about DXO UK pricingl.
No response to the above, perhaps there will be one for this.I have installed the tryout, which works in Photoshop CS5, but get a 'error occurred while attempting to load this plugin' message.
PS OS is Win7 pro
It seems a Euro version is 49 Euro, but a UK version at UKP49 is the equivalent of 61 Euro, but prices include taxes.49 Euro is actually UKP 40
