  • Gotta give Mr. Heim abundant credit for his patience and responsiveness. I use three of his plug-ins, Color Styler, BW Styler, and Focal Blade (all 3 very competitive with larger players, BTW). ...
  • Excellent choice. You'll love the D750. My last DSLR before moving to mirrorless was a D610 paired with the 24-70 and 70-200 Tamron 2.8 zooms. Great tools but too heavy for me (and a bunch of ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    I went back and did an honest-to-goodness test on various raw files opening in Affinity photo. The slowest files are my Fuji raw files, at 25-30 seconds. CR2s and NEFs load in 8-10 seconds. Size ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    My bad - succumbed into exaggeration - my Fuji raw files are a bit over 40MB and take about 25-30 seconds - not 30-40 seconds. i5, 16 GB Ram, W10. Still slow, and if I were less patient, may have ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    Here's a really dumb question - and please don't take it wrong - but are waiting long enough for the file to open in each case? A raw file can take 30-40 seconds on my system. Just a thought. DJB
  • I got the 16-50 free as part of a package with the X-T10 (contributed the savings toward the 23mm f2). I've since acquired the X-T2 and the XF 55-200 lens. The obvious disclosed drawbacks on the XC ...
  • I'm a PC user, but I still got it. But man - I'll never be able to unhear that laugh. Thanks - I'll be giving my best friend, who is a mac user, the link. He'll love it. DJB
  • Ian - This little dialog of ours prompted me to look back at Phase One's recorded webinars - sure as heck there's one from about a year ago about LR and C1 (version8) interacting. It's a little ...
  • Got my X-T2 with the battery grip package from B&H after about 3 1/2 weeks - ordered late January, shipped Feb. 22. The only word on B&H's site at all times was "back ordered" with no expected ...
  • The comment about C1's "cataloging" is a reaction to a) its failure to import either of my two Lightroom catalogs (each a little over 30K images - it crashed after about 1600) and b) when I tried ...
  • There's no handy emoticon for embarrassment here, so I'll just say woops. It was late. I completely misread your post. Yes, you are correct: I can roundtrip from C1 to Photoshop. I was looking for ...
  • Actually I can't. Admittedly I have LR 6.8 and C1 v 9.3 so maybe something has changed. However, if I use the LR Edit In command on either an NEF or an uncompressed RAF file to send to C1, LR will ...
  • I'd agree with Brian Hedrick and a few others above, that as a PS alternative, Affinity is worth a time/learning investment at least for "destructive" layer-based work. I have Lightroom and CS6 - ...
  • Standalone, made in Japan. Delivered this week. Woops - sorry, wrong lens. Mine was a 55-200. To late to delete this post. Gotta learn how to read. DJB
  • Recently sold all my Nikon gear (APS-C and full frame) and transitioned into an X-T10 and an X-T2. I still do some professional work, so I needed 2 bodies for insurance. Like dgt, I am not down on ...
  • Here's a post I did last week over in the Fuji forum in response to a similar question: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59161149 This is not fully responsive to your question, as I can't claim ...
  • Batdude - I've been flirting with Lightroom alternatives for a couple of years, and ACDSee specifically for about a year on-and-off (more off than on until recently). Usually, I use LR 6 perpetual ...
  • Good to hear your positive experiences with ACDSee. I look forward to spending more time with it, in greater concentration (so far i've remained at the shallow end of the pool). :) DJB
  • You are right about that (from my experience). Many ACDSee controls are fairly coarse. One recent exception I discovered was basic exposure in Develop mode on an underexposed portrait, which I had ...
  • The primary frustration I have with C1 is its refusal to play nicely from a workflow perspective with other programs' management modules (notably Lightroom or ACDSee, but also any dedicated DAM ...
