  • Mainly like brain cells - slow death with some pixels going dead or stuck. No effect on colour or general noise levels as far as I know but my oldest digicam is only 13 years old and still works ...
  • Replied in Keep trying
    I had similar problems last night trying to update to 6.1.1. I had already successfully updated to 6.1in June. Using the update link inside LR didn't work, said I was up to date. Tried the direct ...
  • Replied in Only partly true
    It will be the last ACR update for CS6 but not for LR or Elements which continue to get support as before.
  • Digital Asset Management software like Lightroom can be very useful in managing images. Tools like this can reduce confusion from duplicates and organise libraries through the use of keywords and ...
  • Your non-stick kitchen pots and pans contain several orders of magnitude more fluorine molecules than your lens collection. When your house burns down those miniscule fluorine concentrations even ...
  • Get back to us when you understand something about chemistry.
  • If you are using AutoWB then the colours will never be consistent. Set a fixed WB such as daylight and as suggested include a grey card in the scene to help achieve an accurate WB. I don't think ...
  • Sadly Wolf Faust does not sell a Kodachrome target. I would have bought one in a heartbeat when I bought a set from him a couple of years ago but there isn't one.
  • The FA Limited lens series were designed with a compromise focus system intended to give a better manual focus feel. This means they have a longer focus "throw" than most normal AF designs ...
  • Flatbed scanners would not see any real benefit in speed with a USB3 interface. Even USB2 will transfer a 35mm scan in about a second so you would only save less than a second by using USB3. The ...
  • There is a UK member Coolscanner who might be able to repair it but I guess that isn't very handy if you are in the US.
  • Created discussions Q goes to Malta
    A Q system is much easier to stuff into a holiday bag for a short trip. Took Q plus 02, 06 and 08 lenses.
  • Replied in Unlikely
    As far as I can tell there are no rigid housings currently available for any Pentax camera. UK-Germany did produce housings for the *istDs and the K10D at about €2000. I don't think they produced a ...
  • Replied in Use your camera
    Why not just use your camera to photograph the prints? Once you get set up it would be relatively quick and easy to run through a few hundred prints. Spread the load over a few nights to avoid ...
  • I don't understand why Pentax gets almost completely ignored by underwater housing manufacturers. It seems that every model, DSLR or compact, from Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Sony and Panasonic gets a ...
  • Replied in Bumping you up
    Hopefully one of the more experienced members can address your queries with sensible advice. One thing I found very useful was a star map type app for tablet computers, they are available for Apple ...
  • You need to sign out of Adobe before you start up those pages in order to see the standalone offer. You are currently signed in and therefore Adobe arrogantly assume that you can only be ...
  • Not much point in offering advice on a 13 year old thread.
  • No polariser as it eats too much light and personally I wouldn't use anything other than full resolution. If you want a smaller file later then use your PP software to do it but it is much less ...
