  • Thanks, Ted for taking the time to write this out. I'll keep an eye on it and digest it properly once I've shaken off this virus and got my brain back.
  • No doubt there are many photographic opportunities where getting an image at all depends on specialist gear (say close ups of the surface of Saturn's moon Titan). But that isn't really the point ...
  • The majority of photos everyone takes are boring. Take a look at an unedited Cartier-Bresson contact sheet. The trick is to get to the point where you can take some photos that are interesting and ...
  • It's very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that problems one has making satisfactory pictures can be solved by improved gear. Better gear can give you more pixels, more speed, wider angles, ...
  • Apologies, Ted, no intention to ignore your work. Perhaps you could provide a bit more narrative about what you did so some of us (ahem, me) who didn't quite understand, can?
  • I think it helps to have your own personal experience of comparing images and working out what things make a difference and what don't. Then you become more aware of easy it is to fool yourself. I ...
  • Hi Ted I don't have a purist, philosophical or theoretical reason for preferring print - I just like the look of prints. They look beautiful hanging on the wall, if done well. Electronic imagery or ...
  • Having read through the thread I'm left with the impression that there is a split between those for whom testing is tuned to objectively identify/quantify absolute technical differences between ...
  • If you slide the colour noise reduction slider to the right, does it disguise the colour moire problem? Back when I used the Kodak 14n which lacks an AA filter or apparently any software ...
  • Excellent shot...but there is something slightly odd about the need to semi-apologise for shooting a shot on the "wrong" camera, and the need for people to semi-forgive for doing so. It makes me ...
  • Really struggling to understand your complaint here. I've got a G7, G6 and G3 and an XE1 and I use a pair of GH2 at work. Also used to have a GF1 with the clip on EVF so I have some experience with ...
  • It's only an opinion, I've no knowledge of the author's qualifications, but based on what is said in the article my impression is that the author doesn't have a clue how Foveon works.  Even if he ...
  • I think it is more complicated than that!  CFA filters are not brick wall filters that block frequencies 100% outside a narrow passband. Over on the Luminous Landscape there is an article about the ...
  • Did I miss something? I didn't see a single post in that old thread from trolling canon users just a bunch of posts either welcoming foveon or showing interest?????
  • Replied in Pixel shift
    It's not just studio though, based on these photos. Any static subject like those railway images seems to work perfectly. I don't have any intention of getting more cameras but if I did, I think ...
  • I don't really like either of them that much, to be honest. They are perfectly fine photos of a scene of grandeur, no doubt about that, but for my taste they are a bit plain compositionally, ...
  • That review seems not to know that Kalpanika now has italian flag correction built in for DP Merrills and some SD1 lenses.  What is still left skaky is good white balancing. Out of Kalpanika DNGs ...
  • A few years ago I became friends with the chief designer of a boutique high end loudspeaker maker for whom I subsequently did some volunteer listening lab testing. A very interesting few weeks. We ...
  • How much!?!!?  Our combined telephone and broadband connection from Sky costs between £9 and £20 per month depending on what mood they're in and whether they have offered a temporary deal to keep ...
  • You shouldn't laugh - back in 1998 I worked on ICL dumb terminals connected to a remote IBM mainframe. Then we moved to in-house Unix minis and apricot PC's configured as dumb terminals. Now we ...
