  • Interesting info about the Topaz support staff- did you also submit a ticket to their tech support directly and get no response? I've intermittently had the same issues with quirky behavior of ...
  • It comes included with Corel Paintshop Pro X7 Ultimate.  I use it often and I'm surprised at the results being pretty good that would be difficult and time consuming to obtain manually.  I also ...
  • I saw your same post on DxO Optics forum- why haven't you contacted their tech support for help?  I've gotten fast and decent help from them for issues I've come across with the software, and they ...
  • High quality UV Haze or Polarizer might help some, but I don't think a lot. Took your image into Corel PSP X6 and used Topaz Adjust plugin to tweak it up a little, took about 2 minutes. Please ...
  • While I won't pay for a subscription for Photoshop, Lightroom is a good piece of software, but I don't want to bother with a catalog system either.  I know, I know, all the "Pro's" and "Serious ...
  • This restrictive eye point on the FZ1000 EVF is the one reason I wouldn't spend $899 for this camera- this issue annoys me to no end on the lower res EVF FZ150 and has caused me trouble getting ...
  • Created discussions FZ50 Max. Zoom
    With all the interest in the new FZ1000, I thought I'd pull out a photo taken at the maximum zoom on my old horse the FZ50.
  • Replied in Dynamic Range
    To me the D600 shots show a quite detectable expansion of the dynamic range detail compared to the FZ1000.  Sharpness is close between the two cameras. For me, the dynamic range is important, and ...
  • Try Sony's Image Data Converter software.  Simple, slow, but it can produce fairly good results.
  • Replied in Affordable
    I've been using PSP for years, and the latest X6 64 bit is quite the speed improvement. Photoshop Elements has no 64 bit version for Windows, and can't work with 16 bit images except for limited ...
  • I have an FZ50 (which I still really really like), and an FZ150 for faster AF, a bit longer zoom and better low light performance than the FZ50.  While the FZ150 does OK, it's design and features ...
  • Great work! I have to say that to my eyes, in all categories, DxO Optics Pro and Photo Ninja produced the best results, with DxO edging out over Photo Ninja. I know there are many variables in ...
  • I like Picasa and still use it for some things- great for reviewing as it's darn fast.  However, there have been no updates in it's RAW codecs for 2yrs. or so in spite of pleas to Google from ...
  • Smart Lighting is for recovering shadow detail selectively without blowing out the lighter areas- it's not for highlight recovery. For highlight recovery, use the Exposure compensation tool, select ...
  • Never mind about 32 or 64 bit as both are in the same folder installed on your computer, and as long as you have your host program set up to find the folder it will pick the correct plugin. My past ...
  • 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 ...
