  • Replied in Read the manual
    That will tell you everything you need to know.
  • Given that the program reads the required info from the exif data there is no reason why it couldn't get this from Raw files too. Maybe coping with all the proprietary Raw formats makes it too big ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    This article might help www.ronbigelow.com/articles/interpolation-revisited/interpolation-revisited.html The overall conclusion us that different methods work for different images. There are many ...
  • I mainly use Vuescan which has a useful option to recover faded images. It might give you a better starting point for further PP.
  • Replied in Spend some money
    On a hardware calibration device from e.g. Spyder, ColorMunki etc. That should give you a reasonable starting point although few laptop screens are good enough in the first place. Colour and ...
  • But not at the price you want - their DA560 f5.6 is $7k. Only 3kg though if that is any consolation.
  • IE is not colour managed, neither are most Windows apps. It completely ignores that custom profile you carefully prepared and there is nothing you can do to fix it. Firefox does handle colour ...
  • Replied in Dose of reality
    Those film lenses may have been competitive at the time but that was over 20 years ago. Optical design has moved on a great deal since then. Then there is the impact of lead removal legislation ...
  • All Pentax has to offer at the moment, guaranteed to cover the 35mm film sized sensor, are the ageing FA Ltds, DFA macros and the ancient FA50 f1.4. No FF zooms. FF IBIS needs may render even that ...

  • Replied in Stanley Steamers
    We are lucky to have at least two of these in roadworthy condition near us. It is wonderful to see such unusual vehicle being used on a regular basis. Trips do have to be planned carefully but ...
  • It is probably a jpeg thing as most lens profiles are intended for raw images. Try importing a fresh raw file and you should see all the profiles again. You could try the Adobe profile downloader ...
  • Not sure why you haven't answered your own question by using the power of the web. Try searching for frankfurt airport camera store and you should get the name of an electronics retailer with ...
  • Replied in Well spotted!
    First two are in Murano where we stayed, next four various parts of Venice and the final image is from Burano. More here www.pbase.com/steephill/venice including some with my girlfriend's Canon ...
  • This is the advice from the Battery University website Basically full discharge is a bad idea and there is no real penalty in partial charges. Simple Guidelines for Charging Lithium-based Batteries (1) ...
  • Replied in UV lenses
    You need to use a specialist quartz or quartz/fluorite UV lens to pass near UV to the sensor. Nikon, Pentax and Hasselblad had one in their systems. Coastal Optics also have one.
  • Created discussions Q in Venice
    Took a short break to Venice and took a Q and a few lenses. Used the 08 almost exclusively. Decided that three batteries would be fine for three days so didn't take the charger with me. Won't do ...
  • Lots of useful info in the Flashhavoc review . Looks like your simplest option is the new YN560-tx transmitter.

  • Is the problem XP system using NTFS? It might be set up for FAT32, unlikely but possible on a very old installation. It is possible that the drive letter numbering has been limited to those drives ...
