  • Replied in well
    i'd suggest you take him/her up on the offer if you have a lot of "hell" in you to expell.
  • Replied in thanks Martin...
    No worries. Really. Everything is taken care of and it's high time I lay myself to rest regarding this post. Thanks again. (wished I'd a known monitor calibration was such a hot topic before I ...
  • Replied in really...
    We are still swimming in muddied waters here Martin. I posted my reply to the OP after many many other replies had been posted. A very very high percentage of all those prior replies are in favor ...
  • Replied in really...
    I really do like your style Andrew. It's truly been a pleasure to read your thoughtful, informative, and respectful replies/posts. Funny and odd why so many whom deem it necessary to contradict ...
  • Replied in really...
    I should think, in my opinion, that replying to a thread adding encouragement and taking time to write my experiences would be generally be accepted as a friendly gesture here. no?
  • Replied in really...
    seems to be a lot of "putting words in my mouth" syndrome going here today. "Your advice" you say. right then...let's "re-read" my first and only reply to OP then shall we and tally exactly what ...
  • Replied in right...
    personally i like the framing and if these images. -but- i had some odd feeling "?" as I was looking through the images. posing and lighting and exposure are all fine indeed. i couldn't figure out ...
  • that's wonderful and seems about exactly right to what i used to do. HOWEVER...pretty much everything you stated " I tend to use a 5500K white point instead of the much cooler current 6500K ...
  • Apparently it is you whom FAILS to grasp the very simple reason why monitor calibration was required(beneficial) then and not now? It is a Cathode Ray Tube monitor that requires(benefit from) ...
  • so about how many exactly of your prints (reflected light) look like their corresponding (back lit images/light source) form your computer screen? well if you are constantly fiddling with the ...
  • my X-rite combo cost $650 waaaay back when. what do you think a $50 package really does as far as calibration? edit... do you really believe you could differentiate the difference between your ...
  • we are not forgetting that the initial cost of the thing is only money. we are not forgetting that there is also time involved, correct???? perhaps some people assign different value to ...
  • Replied in Not necessary...
    if you have a car with a top speed of 100 mp/h how much time/money/energy would you spend to make said car be able to go 102 mp/h? i "used" (X-Rite) expensive hardware/software to calibrate/profile ...
  • thanks for the explanation Ignat.
    quite extraordinary on GoPro's behalf.
    i wonder why wouldn't the original owner(shooter) simply sell the 'footage' themselves if it's indeed/at all salable.

  • i do not understand the $1000 fee.
    i stick a GoPro camera to my truck, turn it on, hit record, then do what at a cost of $1000?

  • yep!! it's all silliness on all sides for a long time there was a very clearly defined line between Olympus 2X cropped camera IQ and FF IQ. simple. go light weight and sacrifice IQ or go best IQ ...
  • when Nikon/Canon/(even Sony) introduced their first DSLRs to us how many of their lenses were designed for digital? How many are today? Yes indeed.
  • who knows? beyond my level of interest.  not so much interested in how/why cameras work. seems Sony's FE mounts are 'tuned' for a mirror  box's register distance with adapter/spacer length built ...
  • who knows. it'll never happen. (but if it did then coming from Oly Yes for sure.)
  • I wouldn't know about any of your assumptions or guesses. Maybe Oly had a big garage sale in the mid 90's and sold all of their OM equipment???????? Oly used lens coatings in the past with their OM ...
