  • When one corrupts a definition to one's own whim, no references are necessary.
  • So, if I understand you correctly, a definition doesn't mean what it says because that's not what you do.
  • Febs, you did not have 1 stop "underexposure."  You did apply -1 EV of exposure compensation, and that resulted in an exposure that was one stop less than it would otherwise have been.  But the ...
  • A perfect term, Gerry. Let's hope it catches on.
  • You're most welcome, Moti. Yes, or, if you want to take the extra trouble, you can do by hand what PN does automatically, namely, reintroduce a bit of appropriate color using a layer in color mode ...
  • Yes, Febs, the highlight "recovery" of PN can indeed be pleasing. But see my post above for a critique. A far, far better solution (which I suspect Gerry has found long ago) is simply not to ...
  • Well, in reality, there is nothing "basic" about PN. It is an extremely sophisticated raw conversion program, making use of floating-point arithmetic instead of PS/ACR/LR fixed-point arithmetic. ...
  • Did I say that? Did I say that? Did I say that? I'll buy that. That seems to be the opposite of what I indicated. Always a good idea, till someone comes along to re-stir the pot. Sorry, I was doing ...
  • Well, you see, the statistics tell a story. When someone who has been a member for just over 1 week comes along posting like an old, established pro, not being content with 5 posts, but rather 37 ...

    My bad in misinterpreting your post. Sorry 'bout that. T'wasn't clear, however. That thought did initially go though my mind, but given the dynamics of the posts between the OP's and yours, I ...

    Yes, that's quite possible. Either that, or you need to filter your sarcasm.
  • You might do yourself a favor and read up a bit on what a raw file is. Briefly, it is a set of data representing the charges for the individual green (two sets of them), red, and blue sensor ...
  • Also count how many artifacts have been added to the second one. They appear when you view the second image in its original at full magnification as very sharp, dust-like white spots that are not s ...

  • That simply is not so. But you have to know how to expose properly in scenes with high DR and then do the required processing. This is best done shooting raw and using ETTR rather than the meter. ...

    I don't quite get the reason for this thread. Comments like the OP and the one above are just about the most unthinking, foolish, and self-centered views that can be. Fortunately getting old is ...
  • The Ott light is as problematic as fluorescents, Mike. You're better off with GM or Solux: The Solux 3500°K is excellent for display lighting.  The Solux 4700°K is perfect for assessing prints out ...
  • Now that the wrench is in the thread, let's look in another direction. Many find Merklinger's "infinite focus" method to be easier to use than hyperfocal and to produce superior results. I've ...
  • The DoF is determined inferentially from what a healthy human eye can distinguish under a standardized set of viewing conditions. Specifically, it is accepted that a normal human eye viewing an ...
