  • increase shutter speed practice the type of breathing / squeezing exercises used with firearms use the 2 sec delay (if you can stand it) If none of these work there is likely another issue or ...
  • RAW vs JPG is an ongoing discussion in digital photography. There's no universal answer, it depends upon your method of working. First understand though that RAW files are not really displayable. ...
  • buy the X-P2.  Likely they’ll not be X-P3 this year.  The last sensor upgrade is very minor, differences in various processing choices make more difference than the new chip
  • It's not an asset manager.  It's not a tool for adding various software "looks."  It's an excellent RAW developer.
  • It's really quite simple.  I Really liked the way my original X-100rendered my family's skin tones when I used a Red filter Monochrome simulation.  That seems to have carried over to the XP-2 ...
  • I think you're probably on the right path.  In my opinion this new iPad is bumping up against the limits of the iOS.  I suspect Apple will make some moves in this area in order to take full ...
  • OK . This is an unpopular bit of advice perhaps but it’s wirking for me.  Have a good hard look at using JPG fir as much of your work as possible.  I am and suddenly Photos and the iPad are quite ...
  • I follow a similar workflow.  I download JPG's from SD card to iPad, do a quick cull and delete the duds.  As iPad images always download to Photos they're stored there and also on iCloud.  I can ...
  • As I get involved with different groups, activities, styles the excitement of the NEW always comes back.  Lately my interests have been in amateur sports and as this invariably involves travel, ...
  • agree. I often use the flash on my X100. However...(there's always a "but" isn't there)...few months ago I was considering the GR and an acquaintance offered to let me use his for a few days. After ...
  • By now you'll have received a number of opinions about the usefulness of the OVF.  It tends to boil down to personal preferences and specific uses/needs. I am a rangefinder fan and also a strong ...
  • Replied in New Info
    I use wrist straps and have had this type of thin cord fail resulting in camera damage.  Subsequently I've tried a few other manufacturer's cords and found them lacking also.  PD had some sort of ...
  • Replied in Digital Ground
    No.  I did quite a bit of landscape work and made prints .  Spent the last 3 years covering sports and now starting to print seascapes.  I don’t do much on line
  • Replied in Digital Ground
    Thank you so very much.  Digital ground lets me move the print “feel” more towards photograph from watercolor.  A clear UV protect topcoat adds a degree of longevity.  I appreciate your help
  • Replied in Mac air
    in 2013 I went with an AIR instead of a PRO.  I gave up the CD reader (ha) and the retina screen.  As it drives my large desktop monitors the screen didn't matter so much.  I spent the $$ instead ...
  • Created discussion thread Digital Ground
    Anyone using this?  I prepare watercolor paper for inkjet printers with Golden digital ground.  I'm having trouble finding it now.  Anyone know what's happened?
  • this is interesting.  Right off the top of my head I can see 2 reasons that any specific camera would be poor to buy used, 3 if there's no real price difference. One would be if it's a poorly made ...
  • these last few responses are voicing an opinion with which I agree. About a year and a half ago I finally began to trust the Fuji jpg's.  Now after a long night of sports photography I batch ...
  • There are very many excellent cameras on the market.  Any given size, price, feature set has several good candidates for your money and time. The longer a thread such as this gets the more ...
