  • That's a great start. Thank you so much. I'll give it a whirl!
  • PS I'm shooting RAW. -- I like turtles.
  • Created discussion thread G5x Lightroom starting point
    Hi all. Just received my cute little G5x and I'm wondering if anyone has set up a Lightroom starting point preset? Be nice to have an input preset to use when importing with detail, contrast etc. ...
  • Yeah, that makes sense to me. Whatever lens one uses SHOULD (I would have thought) be improved by PS. It's a mystery. Phil
  • Screw that!I will continue to use these lenses (the 50mm I got for $3 at Value Village, attached to a broken ME) to make my living and not worry about PS then. I really just got the K3ii so that I ...
  • Replied in Pixel Shift???
    In the samples I posted I am using, for the first set, a 50mm f2 and for the rest the 16-45 f4. Thee Tripod is a set of Slik legs (can't remember the name but they're big!) and a Manfrotto ball head. ...
  • Replied in Pixel Shift???
    That's interesting. Thanks. It doesn't SEEM to suggest that one needs to shoot in JPG only though. I wish there was a practical guide on this since I can't seem to get it to work at all in terms ...
  • Replied in Pixel Shift???
    Oh, I just read that properly! So I DO need to stick to JPG. Hmm.
  • Replied in Pixel Shift???
    Thanks, was it this one? So I need to shoot JPG? As opposed to shooting RAW and converting it to a JPG in camera or out of camera? I tried using JPG ...
  • Replied in Pixel Shift???
    Sorry if I'm being foolish but what is IR? I don't know that. Phil
  • Created question thread Pixel Shift???
    Hi, has anyone found any resources on how to make Pixel Shift work? So far I have been unable to see any difference between with and without PS. Would love to find out the recipe in terms of ...
  • Ah, a joke that went over my head like a bird in flight, I guess. And it was a typo but the typo was that it is an f2 50mm not 500mm!
  • Interesting point. OK, I tried that and at the album the last two were shot as JPGs. I still can't really see a lot of difference. Phil
  • Right, but my images weren't of those? I'm confused. One peacock feather does not a bird in flight make!
  • I agree. And then I realised I was an idiot for using the K3ii and then the K3 when I should just use the K3ii with pixel shift off and then on so I did that! Same exposure on each. I added those ...
  • BIF?
  • Hi there. I just received my camera and have posted a post here Let me know what you think! Thanks, Phil
  • Created photo thread K3ii Vs K3 images
    Hi all, I just received my K3ii (hurray!) and, as promised, I took just a couple of shots. One is with my K3 and the other with my K3ii. Please ignore the focal length shown in the EXIF. I forgot ...
  • Boy, I wonder how I would tell! My K3ii should give me another stop of stabilisation though. Hurrah!
  • The Image Stabilisation would certainly help and it may be that that would work for motionless items but I was wondering, if you are zoomed in on a moving object is the effect of the movement in ...
