  • I use RAW for maximum flexibility in processing when I get home. I use Lightroom for processing with specific defaults for each camera so I can churn out jpgs for quick web uploads in seconds. I ...
  • You might be able to adjust the crop lines to capture the larger image. I have an older version of Epson Scan and it was pretty flexible about cropping so I am guessing later versions can do the same.
  • Created discussions Who is ready for FF?
    By which I mean who has good enough FF lenses waiting for their day in the sun. Or would you need new lenses immediately? I expect that there will be a crop setting to enable DA series lenses to ...
  • First Janneman now Bejersey, quite a week so far. Still shooting birds I see but not with the famous "Bejersey zoom", the old FA80-320. Welcome back!
  • Replied in 150 Euros?
    Where are you and where are you going to send your kit to? 150 Euros seems a very high cost to send anything that size to a Nikon service centre within Europe. Is your lens still covered by the ...
  • :-O
  • Replied in Need vs want
    Do you need FF or just want it and what for? If you need it now just go ahead and buy one of the excellent Sony A7 series. You can adapt your Pentax lenses to work on those cameras very simply. Or ...
  • Replied in Basically, no
    W7 won't work unless you have a version with several licences included. A change of CPU is enough to stop it working. Photoshop and other progs can be transferred if uninstalled first then ...
  • Replied in Welcome back!
    I enjoyed seeing your roundup of everyday life in the Netherlands. Keep them coming.
  • If you want to see real faded colour just try scanning those 80's films. And yes your films were processed by the lab you sent them to, especially negative film. Botched exposures meant a loss of ...
  • Replied in None
    If you don't know what filter to buy then you don't need any. Few have any practical use in digital photography apart from ND and polarising. ND cuts light in a controlled manner to allow longer ...
  • Created discussions Q does birding
    A friendly robin came close enough for my Q + 06.
  • This adaptor will let you use your lenses on Sony mirrorless cameras. The A7 series bodies will give you the same field of view from your lenses. www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/994957-REG/fotodiox_ ...
  • Exactly the opposite is true - the increased DOF makes it more difficult to "nail" focus. True focus is achieved at a single plane within the DOF. DOF encompasses that plane and many others ...
  • That review about a 1 year licence is rubbish.
  • Try asking a sensible question.
  • As the purpose of the profile is to correct defects arising from the lens design I don't see any reason not to use them as part of the standard workflow unless you prefer images with added ...
  • Replied in No power at all
    That is a manual focus lens which doesn't take any power from the camera.
  • List of radioactive lenses here
