  • That's really interesting ti know, are they photos you could / would share? I haven't got one yet - I picked up a couple of much cheaper but more powerful Nanlights that have more output but are ...
  • As the OP clarified some 18 hours before your post, perhaps milking is a more accurate term than scamming.  Did you not read the whole discussion?  And I think that's fair, I agree with him - DXO ...
  • I don't think that's completely fair.  Rinsing people with this level of update is a fair view, even if not everyone's.  Last time they updated silver with a new UI that looked a bit better (YMMV) ...
  • The update to version 5 appears to essentially be 'enables dark mode'.  I fell for it.  Wish I hadn't.
  • Replied in Tripod?
    Was it on a tripod?  Steady shot should be off if so, it will make your pictures blurry.
  • Replied in refusing refund
    At the moment, the company are refusing to refund my purchase and cancel my license 'because I have activated the software'. If this doesn't get resolved I guess I am done with this company and ...
  • Replied in Same.
    well...yes and no.  The mac updates are part of the problem, but the move to Apple Silicon is huge, and sony shouldn't just be saying 'only compatible with 3 generations back OS'.  They should ...
  • Yes I have, although only yesterday. It might seem like jumping the gun, and if this were the first issue on one system, I’d agree. But the new UI on silver efex has been this way since Nik 4 on ...
  • Replied in Same.
    What a ridiculous situation, it staggers me that they haven't made provision for it. I have done it now, same way as you - I dug out an old intel macbook air and did it with that. Madness.  :-x
  • If anyone is weighing this up, I thought I should share my experience Nik 4 wasn't great with M1 for me, across three different M1 machines with clean installs - blocky square artefacts when ...
  • How on earth do you do it?  Do Sony hire specialists when designing this process whose job it is to make updating firmware as difficult and unwieldy as they possibly can? How hard is it to make it ...
  • Created discussion thread Capture One Live - anyone using it?
    I am watching tutorials, but I want to check if it would work for my usage, and what the general reception for it is I don't actually want it for live tethered review - I'd like to shoot in the ...
  • rule out your raw converter first, try some other software, or imaging edge - it's a weird thing to happen for sure
  • I was of the view that it’s better to never do anything from the PC, delete or format, and that safest protocol was to copy across but do everything else in camera - not sure if that’s got much ...
  • I have this strange thing started in lightroom - the card only has one image written for each file as you'd expect, but on the import screen, LRC shows my images twice - first lot in a shuffled ...
  • Have a look at this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GzalrdorRI This is a blind test between the iii and iv - Once you start with the thought that the A7iv produces more even skintones with less ...
  • i agree about blind tests, most stuff you can only see side by side. but the red in skintones is different in the later cameras, and as such id suggest that the ‘colour science’ fir want of a ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Definitely improved over generations- I first noticed it most starkly with the a7iv which has great tones. Skin in particular looks a lot better. im told by others it was changed on models before ...
  • I haven't used either of these, they look good and your shots are great. I previously had the 65mm F2 APO and I still think it is one of the best lenses you can get for the sony system in terms of ...
  • What other kind is there? That's all photographers, and Lightroom is definitely marketing for them :-D. ;-) There's just way more 'rendering science' embedded in a Sony RAW file that is completely ...
