  • Replied in Exiftool GUI
    Listen to DougOB.  I don't know why everyone seems to fiddle around with DOS when Exiftool GUI for Windows makes everything so much easier.  I love DOS, but there's a time and place for it and ...
  • Don't forget, the K-50's AF sensor works at f5.6, so precise focus always going to be a bit hit and miss at f2.8 depending on the individual lens as the focal point can move at wide apertures with ...
  • A tip:- if you actually get blue skies with white fluffy clouds where you live, look out the window at a cloud for a minute midday then quickly transfer your eyes to your supposedly white screen ...
  • I have been using a PCIe USB 3.0 card for a year or two now and get the expected high speeds which obviously varies with whatever's connected - my fastest device is an external USB 3.0 drive which ...
  • You're off-axis when you are central if you see what I mean.  Your eye has to look up at an angle to see the top of the screen and it has to look down to see the bottom, so typically the top of a ...
  • Replied in Pentax DSLRs
    And the K-30 & K-50.
  • CRTs can manage a pure black with the right adjustment, LCDs can't get anywhere near that, only OLEDs can but I don't know of any OLED monitors anyway and OLED has colour issues, so carry on with ...
  • TN panels are that poor for viewing angles that colours/gamma aren't correct across the whole screen even if you DO view straight on.
  • You can download a legal ISO with no key from Win7x64 Home Premium , ideal for repairs. I believe they're at Service Pack 1 but can't be sure, however I used the Ultimate x64 download to repair a ...
  • There's a long thread about K-3 pTTL lag on the other forum..... w*w*w.pentaxforums.com/forums/172-pentax-k-3/242556-k-3-delay-when-using-flash-2.html
  • The Windows burner is extremely limited.  I use Ashampoo Burning Studio Free, it's reliable and is a bit like the ancient Nero versions that were great to use and uncluttered.
  • Replied in Who uses DNG
    I have no choice but to use DNG as that's the only RAW format my Pentax K-30 outputs.  All the main RAW converters worked well at the time of the K-30's release without waiting for updates, ...
  • Replied in Bee
    Olympus C750 from 2004
  • Replied in Camera Raw
    It's not that CS5 can't take ACR 8.7.1, it's more a case of Adobe not letting CS5 use it so that people have to upgrade.
  • Replied in Acid

  • It all sounds very similar to the effects of stochastic resonance enhancing the acuity of our senses, more commonly known about with regard to our hearing - cochlea implants etc, i.e. the ...
  • Replied in The answer
    Is on Imaging Resource site..... D750 flare
  • I tend to agree except you have to be a bit careful as IRSC don't check the accuracy of the ISO rating of each camera and, at least going by DxO, there is quite a wide variation between cameras. JP ...
  • Works for me in the UK also. However , there is something strange about it, if I resolve it to its numerical web address using tracert or Discombobulator to 190.93.245.9 then using that I get the ...
