    Bob (Bird on Branch) Taken a while back. could have been taken four weeks ago, three, two, last week or from the looks of the forecast, later today or next week. Manual lens - Tamron 300mm f/5.6
  • A 1600x900pix resolution display equals roughly 1.4mp, so anything over 2mp might be considered more than enough. The penchant to zoom in and pixel peep does have an allure in some quarters ...
  • Now, if it was a Bessa D, to go along with a new 50/3.5 Heliar and a 35/1.4 Nokton...

  • Concord, Massachusetts.
  • Replied in ICE Pano
    The new version is quite fast, with some added functions. Pano originally hand stitched in 2004 that took a couple of hours vs. same pano in ICE in a few minutes (finding the source files took most ...
  • Replied in Merrow Meadow
    Willimantic River, December light.
  • Another kink? According to what I've been able to dig up, the in-camera processing software is probably as big a part of the equation as the sensor and optics. Since the image capture and ...
  • Replied in Downey
    It's a Tamron 300mm f/5.6, the Adapt-A-Matic version from 1972/73. It was an eBay find. Since the point of focus is roughly 12.5 feet or so it pops in and out of focus with a very short throw. The ...

    Colin, thanks for the suggestion! Wouldn't have considered that the jpg would stand up to additional nudging but credit to Olympus - Viewer 2, upped the Gamma a bit and added a touch of Contrast: O ...
  • Replied in Skulduggery.
    Probably should read "digital correction" is lossy. ; - ) Perhaps one thing to keep in mind for the digital correction promoters is that most sensor read-outs are extrapolated to begin with. The ...
  • Converted & resized in Viewer 2.
  • Replied in Downey
    In B&W.
  • Birding is not exactly my forte. I do bring out some old glass on occasion however. Winter storms being one. Not the best quality glass or technique, added to the double glazed door and swirling ...
  • Replied in Blizzard
  • Replied in A few examples
    The legacy lenses tend to come out in the summer for garden season. Each have their own flavor. The Meyer-Optik Görlitz lenses have a similar rendering character as some Leitz lenses. Some can be ...
  • Without the bird, it's a dam. With the bird, it's a story. The second image creates context but the first is a more powerful statement.
  • I think the poster may be talking about the software algorithms used to distribute signal noise in the black portions of an image. The signal noise would be non-image data created by the sensor. ...
  • It’s a vacation. Take something you enjoy using, are comfortable using and appreciate the results it provides, because then you’ll use it. : - )
  • Don’t have the 42.5 but do have a 17.5 Nocton wedded to an E-PL1. I had picked up an Ultron 35mm f/1.7 (Leica Thread Mount) and liked it so much I decided to get the 17.5. The Noktons are ...
  • Interestingly, I have photos taken with a ZD 40-150 ED on an e-pl5 that show the same type of digital artifacting visible here. The same lens on an e-30 doesn't display this type of artifacting. ...
