  • I've found it helpful in the past to fill out DxO's request form for different cameras and lenses to be supported.  The more requests they get for specific models, the sooner they usually get...
  • I know the pitfalls of shooting at ISO 3200 with the FZ50, or for that matter anything above ISO 400.  My example was to show that it's minimally acceptable for web size, certainly not an enlargement.
  • Interesting tests and data. Using some newer model cameras, like the Panasonic FZ150, and a dslr Sony A57, I can't say I get singnificantly better high ISO shots in jpeg than in the FZ50, other...
  • How did you find out about the update?  I see the version on Topaz download page, but no mention of it on their blog or forum, nor in e-mails, and the check for updates feature doesn't work in any...
  • Replied in Dxo presets
    DxO allows you to create and save your on presets, so when you get certain settings you like, create preset, name it and save it. Link to tutorial on presets and how to create your own. Mastering...
  • Replied in No Sony Mount
    This struck me right away in the news release, "Not Sony", just Canon and Nikon.  Since Sony can't make there mind up on their cameras and lens mount, I imagine Tamron doesn't want to...
  • Some users have reported good luck using double sided tape to re-attach the thumb rest. http://www.amazon.com/Double-Sided-Dispenser-Permanent-Inches-MMM136/dp/B00004Z47L/ref=pd_sbs_op_5
  • Replied in Why DxO?
    I use DxO because I didn't want to mess with Lightroom's catalog system.  I found the DxO defaults lacking, but in the Advanced mode I'm able to get settings I like, however for optimal results...
  • Pretty good dynamic range in the shadow areas.  Green tint initially confusing, but I realized that's how the scene must have really looked.
  • Replied in Try I.Dynamic
    Besides spot metering on the dark element, and trying raising the exposure compensation, I've had some luck setting I.Dynamic to the high setting.  It doesn't do much for highlights, but it does...
  • Created discussions Anningha ZS3
    Still surprised at this camera sometimes.
  • Also try within program at top right is a little star like icon for Corel Guide in which you should have the options of downloading extra content under the Do More tab.
  • For those that don't want to deal with potential complications and problems from Lightroom's catalog system, DxO or Photo Ninja are better choices.  I chose DxO because the lens corrections are...
  • I have the Asus PA248Q which doesn't have the Adobe RGB color space, only the sRGB. I just have it set to the default settings except for brightness which I turned down. If anything it seems a bit...
  • I have the Asus PA248Q and I'm very pleased with it. I chose it over the Dell U2412 model because the Asus stand is easier to adjust and a bit sturdier. Also, viewing the Asus and Dell side by side...
  • It's hard for newer models to beat that lens!
  • I'm not an expert, but in reviewing other image editing programs that use hardware acceleration, the GPU aids mainly in the viewing of the images, like in zooming in or switching views etc., and...
  • The only solution to plugin problems I've gotten from Topaz is to uninstall and reinstall, which doesn't work well - they fail to mention it's better to restart computer after uninstall before...
  • Probably, if you want to draw/paint by hand as it has no auto painting or clone colors tools.  Stripped down version of Corel Painter. If you do a lot of photo painting, I'd recommend finding a...
  • DxO claims improved highlight recovery in v.9- anyone notice and difference over v.8?
