  • Whilst you could be right, this is just wild speculation. The problem could be anything. Maybe SPP doesn't like a sound card driver or a usb driver? Frankly, the only real way to diagnose some ...
  • Image quality differences between cameras only matter if your display medium is capable of distinguishing between them.  Considering I print on A4 matte paper, with the inked area about 9" x 6" I ...
  • It would be disappointing to lose diversity in the camera world, to be sure. But the value of Foveon depends very much on your needs.  For some people (presumably for you too) it would be an ...
  • There only seem to be three settings: - Contrast - sharpness - saturation with a range of -1 to +1
  • Created discussion thread DP2 Merrill jpeg settings
    I know raw is the best way and I always shoot raw normally but in the search for a practical Foveon workflow in Lightroom, I'm tempted to play around with OOC jpg. So, what menu settings give the ...

    From wikipedia: IBM ( International Business Machines Corporation ) is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Armonk, New York , United States , with operations in over 170 ...

    I think it was Thom Hogan (I may be wrong) who said that a 25% increase in pixel count was at the edge of discernability. My view is that I would never upgrade for more pixels unless I got twice ...
  • You know I said in an earlier post that as soon as discussions about MP equivalency start up the debate goes down hill rapidly? Quoting you: "You can believe what you want, of course, but if you ...
  • Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy--------------Abbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbottttttttttttt!!
  • I'm sure you know exactly what you're talking about with respect to making large prints but how much of an issue is it if you keep to modest enlargements. I've plenty of examples of getting ...
  • The sharpening thing is a red herring. Foveon files are getting sharpened on the sly for the most part, just making it look like they don't need so much extra sharpening.

    The cost comparisons in favour of Sigma do appear to be quoted one way. In reality, if you were buying into Sigma from outside, you would also need to purchase the very best and expensive lenses ...
  • Imaging Resource have reviewed a number of Merrill cameras and they consistently rate it on a par with 24MP Bayer sensors and dispute the 2x claim.  I believe this is because they choose their ...
  • That ddisoftware comparison you quote has proved an annoying one over the years. What you don't see in the review is the follow up discussions. Mike Chaney said that the strength of the performance ...

    You really like typing :-) I'm not sure to be honest that I could actually work out from that considerable amount of planning what issues you are trying to solve with your current gear. Thom Hogan ...
  • Sorry, Scott, that you are sick of the garbage but I'd note there is no maths here in the sense you meant, merely numerology and anecdotal claims. The exact equivalence between Foveon and Bayer ...
  • Yes, but not from your account name which is what I thought you were criticising. My signature has my full name in the flickr account (why do I still have that, I haven't used it for years!).
  • It's not just demosaic algorithms and AA filter strength/absence. Resolution measurements from a chart are subjective - where do you draw the cut off point? It's interesting looking at the way ...
  • Your user name isn't that clear, to be honest!  Is it possible to change the display name? I'll do that if it helps.
