  • Replied in DEMOSAICING...
    I like RawTherapee for those times I'm dealing with images with challenging aritifacting problems.  The multiple demosaicing options gives you flexibility with how you attack the problem. I don't ...
  • When an AA-less camera blows it at a large enough scale that it's easily visible, then everyone notices and criticizes the AA-less strategy.  Then again, when it's at such a scale, the ...
  • Replied in DEMOSAICING...
    The problem with a less aggressive demosaic algorithm is that it will tend to reduce detail (real and false) and increase blur at the same time it tends to reduces artifacts. The trade-off is ...
  • American...of German (and Swedish) extraction.
  • Some advice: don't quit your day job to go into stand-up comedy, Bob!  :-P
  • Obviously there is a difference in the positioning of the Phase One compared to the other cameras.  Look here and pay attention to the differences in the curve of the VQA band on the Phase One shot ...
  • You've got to be kidding me!
  • In the crops below I show what happens when you add the necessary sharpening to the EM5II HiRes raw.  I've included an unsharpened D810 crop plus a D810 crop that has the same amount of sharpening ...
  • Replied in A few ideas
    FYI, Ming teaches workshops, does commercial photography in addition to his fine art efforts and does equipment reviews with equipment lent to him by camera companies.  He's constantly complaining ...
  • Actually, you've got that turned around. Sergey is the one who doesn't shoot m4/3 and likes to police this forum and respond to posts that don't genuflect to the superiority of full frame cameras ...
  • Replied in Why "lucky"?
    What's your point? The content providers of DPReview don't share in the profits. Yet this moral outrage hasn't caused you to boycott DPReview. What do you call reading/viewing content generated by ...
  • Replied in Why "lucky"?
    Oh, come on...in exchange for a few answers to some questions and sharing a dozen or so of your images, you get some free pub and a bit of recognition for your skills. Chances are about 99.99% ...
  • Replied in Why "lucky"?
    Because it free pub for the featured photographers.  If you were a featured photographer in the print version of Digital Photo Pro would you expect to be paid?
  • An interesting website strategy and I look forward to viewing the site. Will consider contacting you about featuring my own work, but I would like to "pre-qualify" you a bit by asking for the ...
  • Thanks for taking the time to do the comparison and post your results.  My ranking would be: 1. LR6 2. C1 3. DxO 4. OV3 The reasoning is because LR6 has done the least amount of default "damage". ...
  • Replied in Well put
    Yep. Continuity and stability of forums and participants is an important differentiator. That way you know with whom you're dealing when giving and receiving advice and sharing information and ...
  • Replied in the next step
    This may be controversial here because many don't bother to print anymore and when they do they rely on commercial printers. I think it's a shame and a detriment to their development as ...

    Poor light and inferior processing.  The camera and lens you used were not the source of your problem with these shots.  Please also refer to my other response to you below.
  • Replied in the next step
    HCB was all about subject - "the decisive moment" and all that - his images weren't notable at all for there technical perfection and, in fact, he used almost exclusive 35mm film (Leicas) when ...
  • Check your preferences for the location of the scratch disk.  It should be set to a local drive, preferably an SSD drive.  That's the most important setting for performance while editing. It won't ...
