  • I don't think that anyone would argue against the Q being a great camera.  The Q2 is better in a number of ways, but not everyone needs it.  For those who think that they do and can afford the ...
  • It's still a fixed focal length lens, but the high megapixel count makes it more flexible in use.
  • The problems that you describe, especially crashing, suggest a compatibility problem between your computer and the software.  I experience none of them on my MacPro (late 2013) with 32Gb ram. ...
  • Funny you should think that.  I think that ON1's highlight recovery is easily amongst the best out there.
  • Created discussion thread ON1 Photo RAW 2020.5 released
    As far as I can tell from the website, this release provides integration with ON1 Mobile and the new ON1 360. There do not appear to be any substantive changes to Photo RAW itself. If that is the ...
  • If you can comfortably afford it and can accept the limitations of a fixed 28mm lens, then the answer is a resounding YES!. That lens, BTW, is one of the finest 28mm lenses ever made, so consider ...
  • Any thoughts on Topaz Gigapixel AI vs ON1 Photo RAW 2020 Resize?
  • Thanks ON1 Photo RAW has become my main photo editor, and I use it for everything except HDR and printing. It is very easy to use with a superb UI, and it has powerful editing tools that make ...
  • Here is an effort using a combination on ON1 Photo RAW 2020.1 and Neat Image. I also tried Topaz Denoise-AI, but it produced intolerable color blotching, which is its tendency whenever there is ...
  • Other than the sheer pleasure of creating ultra-high resolution images, do you require them for some other photographic purpose?
  • I have spent a good deal of time pondering the question of which NR software works best, and my opinion has changed as various products have been improved. In a previous thread on this subject, I ...
  • The reason that you can recognize a crop from a wide angle lens has to do with perspective, which is determined by the distance between the camera and the subject. Typically, one stands closer to ...
  • No offense intended, but do you really need a $5,000 camera for SOOC JPEGs? As I see it, the whole point in using high end camera and lens is to produce the best images that you can, and that ...
  • Check popflashphoto.com.  They may have a like-new used camera.
  • The improved EVF in the Q2 is a huge upgrade, IMO. In addition to the other improvements that have been mentioned, I think that the Q2's images have a bit more pop. That said, the original Q is ...
  • Replied in Sample
    Low Light Mode is a real game changer, IMO. No need to add any color noise removal, which unfortunately also removes color. Also, with LLM, I have not see the ugly color blotching that turned me ...
  • Replied in 75mm M lens?
    Despite what you may have read, the CV Nokton 75/f1.5 does landscapes and other distant shots just fine.  Yes, it is a superb portrait lens, but it is more than that.
  • I realize that there are purists who refuse to print any image that contains interpolation, but the fact is that some of the latest re-sizing programs are incredibly good. Think about ON1 Resize ...
  • Replied in 75mm M lens?
    Good luck with the Summarit. I have the CV Nokton 75/f1.5, and it is superb in every way from build quality to performance.  At about $1000 in the U.S., it is also a tremendous bargain.
  • I agree wholeheartedly. I use the Nokton 50/f1.2 on a Leica CL. The results are so good that I sold my Summilux-M 50/f1.4 ASPH without hesitation. One nice thing about the Nokton is that at f1.2, ...
