  • I've decided to try (one of these days) taking a TIFF from Roland's X3F Tools and using the individual layer channels (not RGB but each layer is exported as its own channel) to create a black & ...
  • Here's another 30 second edit - probably a bit too warm, but I'll tell you what I did & then maybe you can add this tip to your arsenal. Copy the base layer in photoshop and then do a Blur, ...
  • From your OOC JPG using Athentech Perfectly Clear with just a couple of slide fader changes (Exposure adjust max, contrast low, vibrancy low, etc.). I test a bunch of Photoshop plugins from time to ...
  • Replied in VF
    I use the cheap Perfect Foldable Viewfinder with the drill + bungee cord hack to keep it attached to the camera while in use. It flips up handily when not in use/for photo review or composing at ...
  • Yeah, I got some - for lack of a better term - goop on the lens & lens protector/outer shutter (what is that thing called) and now the leaves don't close 100% reliably, and that goop, while I ...
  • Less is always More.
  • Replied in And a face
    I think we can both agree that shooting discipline is a matter of keeping the end result in mind, yes?
  • This looks properly exposed.
  • I shoot backlit all the time, though not with my Sigma cameras, and yes always in manual mode. What is your method of exposure? I generally set exposure to a gray card at the subject's location. Th ...
  • Thank you for your response. I do believe that the issue lies with SPP and not with the Quattro itself. You can use SPP to extract the in-camera JPG - in the gallery view just right-click and ...
  • I watched that video a week ago when it was posted here http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54132671 I was also very active in troubleshooting a blown highlight issue in this thread http://www.dpre ...
  • I had a SuperCCD based point & shoot from Fuji - it was a piece of garbage. I was seduced into buying it by the technology, but I saw no great boost in dynamic range & the in-camera JPG engine ...
  • You, Erational, have an Irrational obsession with dynamic range. This is how much of the first froggy bicycle photo you posted was "blown" by the in-camera JPG. The "blown out" bits are the tag ...
  • These photos are amazing. Kudos.
  • Replied in Bump
    I would if it were a landscape, but it's a photo of a model & I don't want to release the unedited "flaws & all" version. I'll try to replicate the results, since I'm pretty sure I know what ...
  • I've noticed similar behavior on the DP3 Merrill & this is common for leaf shutter cameras - since the shutter motion depends on the aperture diameter it's more tied to the aperture than focal ...
  • Sorry for the delay, I was out of town for a couple of days. Converted to TIFF using X3F tools (thanks, Roland), then used levels in photoshop to push the exposure until the histogram looked like ...
  • Thanks, Roland. I suspected it was an issue with bit depth. I will now be able to contribute again to that specific thread.
  • Thank you for the clarification. I was aware of the AFE but specifics were hazy in my memory.
  • It could be a software coupling thing. Both should have a leaf shutter capable of high speed sync, but if you're depending on TTL the software may limit the shutter speed. Even with leaf shutters, ...
