  • Replied in Not Much
    There really isn't much difference here in actually image quality. The difference here is due to slight differences in white balance and a larger difference in exposure ...and also in not matching ...
  • Replied in Locked
    ...for rule 6 issues
  • Replied in nurse shark
    A sub species of Ginglymostoma cirratum - nurse shark
  • Replied in Locked
    Locked as it turned to just argument baiting by a few
  • Replied in gear
    This is one of the gear forums hear and not one of the Photography forums here.  Pixel Peeping can be an art form :)
  • Replied in DR
    The chart you are linking is graphing PDR (Photographic Dynamic Range) and not actual Dynamic range. In terms of actual Dynamic Range (difference between the darkest and lightest tones captured in ...
  • Replied in Locked
    ...as the back and forth becomes un-civil
  • Replied in oops
    OOPS...spell checker maybe. PDR (from photonstophotos.net) Photographic Dynamic Range....is not Dynamic Range (the measurement between the whitest whites and the blackest blacks in an image, or ...
  • Replied in No dif
    Apples and oranges. A Nef file is not an image. You have to convert an NEF to a TIFF/JPEG (or other image format file) to see an image Sure it is. In your case (and the case for 99.9% of the folks ...
  • Replied in Dr
    Great site and excellent work...But PDF is not Dynamic range.  If you shoot an actual illuminated dynamic range chart....The measured dynamic range will usually match the DxO numbers. That's ...
  • Replied in yellow
    No...it can be better because it can allow for a wider range of output media. It's not necessarily any better for actual editing. No...the best color space for editing is the one that allows you to ...
  • Replied in Yes.....
    If you import a TIFF or a JPEG into Lightroom, it uses the current color space embedded into the file. If there is none, it will make it sRGB. If you choose a different one when exporting, it will ...
  • Replied in Pros/Cons
    It uses Adobe Camera Raw to open them and you assign what color space will be used. You have some options...I think...other than just ProPhoto Why? Sometimes that is the best color space to use. It ...
  • Replied in For that
    For that...35mm should be fine.  I assume you have a zoom lens (could be wrong) that already has 35mm.  Try it at 35mm and see if the framing is to your likening
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes On a DX body...35mm isn't very wide fine little lens for the money You can use it on a few FX bodies (not all) and get controllable vignetting. The DX version is really pretty good and in the ...
  • Replied in Good
    A good read: https://www.color-management-guide.com/color-management-in-lightroom.html
  • Replied in ProPhoto
    What is the purpose of the image? If it's for web only and you want folks to see (generally) what you see...then sRGB. What is your monitor calibrated for? If it's for print...what color space ...
  • Replied in Great stuff
    Excellent post/review. Good Job! Just a note...the 6DmrkII really does also have about 12EV of DR at base ISO.  The K-1 II should be closer to 14 or so at base ISO That's not really a ...
  • Replied in Check
    You should repeat the tests above in good light (sunlight if available)....and compare with the same shot using Live-view. That will tell you how far of the lens is in AF calibration with your ...
  • Replied in CLS
    The Neewer 750Iii doesn't fully support Nikon CLS ...so won't act like a Nikon Speed-light in remote mode with pop-up or SB-700 set to commander. You can set it for S1/S2 mode and it will fire ...
