  • You are probably right about the cost and weight but depending on how well the 300mm f4 sells they might make such a lens.  At $8000 they will not need to rely on volume to make a profit. I will ...
  • I owned an E520 and currently use a GX7. The 520 is long gone so I cannot perform a direct comparison but from what I remember the 520 gave me about a stop, maybe 1.5 stops of improvement with ...
  • Created discussions EE1 and astigmatism
    Do those of you with astigmatism find the resulting blurred red dot on a EE-1 distracting? I have astigmatism which rarely causes problem.  While I have glasses I normally wear them only while ...
  • Shallow depth of field can be a useful tool in many situations even though it is not needed in the majority of the photos I take. It is always better to have a capability you do not often need and ...
  • Are you using the 2012 process in the develop settings? When I tried to use LR6 to make a panorama out of 4 shots I took in 2011 with Canon S95 it would only merge 3 of the files together when I ...
  • I have a used a couple of old manual focus Canon FD L 300mm lenses and teleconverters with my Panasonic GX7.  I used to have a 300mm f4 L and later switched to a 300mm f2.8 L.  I get better ...
  • I had such poor results when I tried HDR years ago I did not try the HDR merge in LR6 until I saw this thread last night.  The results looked great compared to my previous attempts which ended up ...
  • It will line up the images if you shoot handheld.  I briefly played around a little with pictures taken handheld inside my house last night and it seemed to do a pretty good job.
  • Does LR 5.7 support the D7200?  That is a pretty new camera. To the OP: I always just break down and buy whatever version of LR supports my camera.  Compared to the cost of a D7200 $80 for the ...
  • Watts = Volts * Amps.  So a charger that needs 4.5*12 = 54 Watts is not going to work with a 27 W solar panel.  Even if you step down the voltage your panel will not be able to supply 4.5 A of ...
  • No, all I had in my catalog were the raw files. I finally got it to work by deleting the 4 base images and reimporting them.  There must have been something in my develop settings that was causing ...
  • I double checked that.  The panoramas get named after the first image selected and in the case of the uncropped version it is named after the image it did not include in the panorama.  I also ...
  • One of the main reasons I upgraded to LR 6 is it can now do panoramas. I bought a copy of Photoshop 5 years ago but found I preferred LR and eventually ended up using it only for panoramas. But ...
  • Any way to get the face regions back after you remove them? I copied a small portion of my catalog off as a new catalog and am playing with until I get the hang of face recognition or Adobe makes ...
  • Replied in Mail fraud???
    Once again, sorry for misreading your original post. Paying for a lens and getting some paper is not just a violation of ebay policies, it is fraud.  If it was shipped through the USPS it might ...
  • My apologies to the original poster.  I thought he received a poorly packaged lens, not an envelope full of papers.  I am not sure how I misread the original post so badly but really messed up to ...
  • Does the lens work? Are there any signs of damage? I would be upset to see a lens shipped that way too. The seller would definitely get negative feedback complete with as much ranting as allowed. ...
  • My wanting to be in the picture is pretty rare but does happen.  Last weekend I was visiting grandkids and wanted a couple of pictures with all of us in the picture. I usually take the time to ...
  • The last time I checked his website he had a big blurb about how you should only buy online because if you bought retail you would never know if a salesman or customer had handled the camera you ...
  • I have the Metz-52 on a Panasonic GX7 and do not have that problem. Some cameras and flashes offer a red eye reduction mode that fires the flash a few times before the main burst so the iris of ...
