In reply to:

Wolfgang Fieger: Once more for better understanding: we photographers are not interested in movie making! If we would be interested in movie making we would be movie makers, not photographers. Please recognize the art of photography as a totally different form of art as movie making is. These two forms of art have less in common than painting and sculptury. The only connecting part is the fact, that both arts involve lenses as tools of their craftmanship.

"We photographers" ....
You are funny...
From you it is a bit like: " We pilots dont like to use GPS Navigation" just because you took a coach flight to Spain one day.

On P1030137 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (4 comments in total)

Nice panorama if it was not for the three quite wide dark vertical lines from the middle to the right of the picture. Somehow there seems to be a glitch in the in camera Pano software.

On Beautiful country sunset in the Sunset in the countryside V challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

JacobSR: Beautiful scene. I was wondering if you use artificial lighting, the rocks and the grass in the foreground are nicely exposed.

Well, I think we should try to match what the eye sees when we do PP. (Some HDR applications have their artistic place of course) That is not the case in the picture above. You would need a number of reflectors behind you to get the shadows of the rocks illuminated as on the picture.Also the grass is far to light in comparison to the sky. I am quite sure it did not look like that when you stood there. The shadows are just lifted to much. Sorry that is how I see it.

Thanks for the nice picture.
Simple and just well done.
A special thanks for not making a HDR picture.
I am sooo tired of those.

A little post processing ??? Sorry but that is too much processing. It looks artificial. No Idea how it was voted so high.....
I am so tired of this kind of picture.....

On DSC00035 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Well, quite a nice camera. But the optics....
Interesting to see the blur in the foreground. Its the strongest in the middle then it goes back to nearly sharp close to the left corner and then gets ugly blurred right in the corner.
Also the tree on the left has very little contrast..

Those two faults are very visible even at low resolutions.

No, Sony is not there yet...

In reply to:

Lucky777: on the saved video I have the message:
Deshaker:
This frame was not processed in pass 1

What step am I missing?

Have you completed the analysing "Pass 1"? Make sure you let the pass run through by pressing►o. Alternatively you can save Pass 1 under File-Save as.
Also, make sure you start at the very beginning of the video by pressing ■ before you start.

Let me know if it works...

On Cleaning your lens article (6 comments in total)

Acid is present because of CO2 in exhaled air. CO2 + H20 from the condensation= H2CO3 or better known as Carbonic Acid.
In this case it would be very weak though. I can not see it endangering the lens coatings.

Why F20??? Poor PP and compression. Spoiled an otherwise nice pano.

Nice Picture. The Lightning did not strike the Eiffel Tower though.
Far too small to be at the same distance as the Tower.

Maritini? Ok, MARTINI!
And I thing Panasonic made a step in the right direction. The IQ is alot better than the FZ100. I was not impressed with the FZ100 at all. I had bought the FZ35/38 for a friend and its output was way better then the FZ100. Its good to see how manufacturers slowly realise that at least in this segment the customer is not kompletely without knowledge. The Fuji 550 EXR is for me the best (worst)example of a camera that has alot of bells and whistles but just can not take decent pictures at all. So, thank you Panasonic!

On Four Happy Fishermen in the Celebrating Differences challenge (1 comment in total)

That brings back memories : ) How I miss the days in the Solomons, out on the pristine ocean and taking home a few Spanish Mackarel ( as seen in the picture) Wahoo or Dogtooth Tuna and maybe a Coral Trout or two : ) Thanks for that typical shot of going out fishing with the friendly locals. I spend 3.5 years there and I loved it, especially after going through the efford of learning the Solomon Pidgin.

Thanks Mate!
