  • In darktable, the tools I use that affect sharpness directly are (1) plain old USM module (2) Local contrast module (3) Haze removal module (4) ...
  • Hi folks I'm sure some of you knowledgeable home printing people can help me out..... I spent the day with the blinds open and with my strongest reading glasses on which allowed me to go through ...
  • One should never predict the downfall of a brand, it's not good form and Pentax are still with us. Foveon FF certainly has a challenge ahead of it, however. The years have passed and Bayer sensors ...
  • I'm a fan of the FZ1000. I wish it had a mechanical zoom rather than powered (and a second command wheel like the Mk 2) but apart from that it is a very good all in one solution. I'd go as far as ...
  • Replied in Image IQ
    i don't own a TV, no loss.
  • Replied in Maybe this
    Yep, those twigs in the snow look like triple exposed images. But there are plenty of other areas in the image where things look weird. In some cases it might just be focusing/depth of field or ...
  • Yes
  • My Fuji GFX has a database in the menu where you can enter in a focal length against a line entry for lens1, another for lens 2, another for lens 3 etc. When you change lenses, you summon up the ...
  • Replied in Yin and Yang
    Amidst all the fulsome praise for the Quattro, would it be remiss of me to point out over much of this image, the image quality is terrible in comparison to the Fuji because large parts of it are ...
  • I liked the gallery with the TVs. Quirky. Didn't quite see the point of the landscapes with flash. What's that technique trying to do?
  • One or two Lumix cameras have a dedicated sliding switch for aspect ratio. For some reason, my raw converter (darktable) doesn't respect the aspect ratio setting for GFX raws and always shows the ...
  • I started photography back in 1975, developed my own film and printed in my darkroom. I  learned the Zone System and what ISO film speeds mean in practice. I abandoned film in 1999 and have shot ...
  • But what does boosting the ISO setting actually give you apart from making your light meter believe the sensor is more sensitive than it is? As it can't increase the sensitivity, it's just ...
  • Please check and correct erroneous statements below, as I'm I still unsure about sensor ISO in the digital world. There is a bit of simplification for clarity. FILM (The below ignores the ...
  • Yes. When I tested the HR mode on my G9, what you see clearly is that there is a significant reduction in noise compared to the single file. And a significant cleaning up of aliasing/moire. With ...
  • Yes, but the question is "what causes what you see". It isn't bit depth. 12 bit files really don't suffer from a lack of tones or posterisation because of bit depth. The medium format players have ...
  • Nobody can argue with or against what you personally see, we all live in our own heads. But the physics is independent of individuals. Think back to the film era. 35mm and medium format used ...
  • Not really. The human eye can only reliably distinguish about 200 shades of grey. 12 bit depth files are fine. What happens is that as you zoom into the files from smaller files, subtle noise ...
  • There is no difference at all as long as you remain within the magnification sweet spot of m4/3. If you magnify your output beyond a certain point, noise starts to affect tonal transitions, then ...
  • Replied in Sample Images
    There are a lot of "truisms" passed from photographer to photographer that aren't actually true. And plenty of time there is evidence provided that is supposed to show "X" or "Y" but does nothing ...
