rubank: If I had the Boeing budget I could do that too :)

Nice enough though. I guess these guys studied Top Gear....

No. I mean Top Gear.
Superb video production.

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (818 comments in total)

Pentax LX (with its wonderful sports finder) could well defend its place here.

Too bad there are no DSLR:s with interchangeable finders.

On article Alpha-better: Sony a9 versus a7R II (503 comments in total)

Samsung NX-1 came years ago, with specs in some ways better compared to the new Sony, together with (only) two excellent lenses. Still, they didn´t make it in the market. Why would Sony A9?

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (392 comments in total)

My first camera was a Kodak Brownie which I "inherited" from my brother. It had cost 18 swedish Kronor, equivalent to ~$2. It used 127 roll film, just like my next camera - the wonderful baby Rollei TLR (which cost me ~$40 :)

On article Samyang goes Premium with MF lens range (58 comments in total)

That headline gave me a long nose: I thought MF meant Medium Format :)

But that said, if the 14 mm perform as indicated by the MTF chart I will likely buy one.

On article Corel PaintShop Pro X9 arrives with improved workflow (48 comments in total)
In reply to:

rubank: I am very fond of Corel products, I use Draw a lot for making documents, broshures and so on; nothing suits me better. And for stitching photos nothing beats PhotoPaint IMO. The printing module of the Corel suite is just super.
But for developing RAW Corel has nothing to really compete - still IMO.
Unfortunately Adobe has.
And that´s too bad.

I know, I´ve tried it and don´t like it.

Kiwisnap: How come no one ever does these for Nikon?

Becuase Nikon lenses for the most part use 1950´s technology: mechanical aperture.

In reply to:

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

Best feature of the LX was it´s VF system. Wonderful sports finder!
Too bad there´s no DSLR with changeable VF....

rubank: Seems very nice, BUT
I don´t understand the design. The very short handgrip make for a very unbalanced feeling with a bigger lens, there is no support for the lower part of the palm. Strange.

No

At 400 mm really unimpressive :(

In my experience tele zooms are more often used at max zoom than at shorter settings, and yet few seems to be optimized for the longest FL. Weird.
And at that price it´s a shame.

The poor guy in the last pic seems to suffer from yellow fever...

All over, WB is not a priority, obviously. (Of course my screen could be totally off...)

These images will hardly sell that lens :D

In reply to:

DAJM: Corel claim that the Aftershot products work with RAW files from the Nikon D810. They don't. Or, at least, the free trial versions I downloaded don't. Has anyone here solved this problem?

I´m using D810 and had no problems working with the RAW files in AS Pro2 trial version.
That I didn´t like the results (as explained further down) is another matter.
Sorry, can´t help you on your specific problems with D810 RAWs, I´ve already uninstalled it.

Link | Posted on Nov 5, 2015 at 22:02 UTC

As much as I like some Corel products (Draw and Photo-Paint which I use a lot) I have never seen a really competitive RAW developer from them.
And AS Pro2 still doesn´t cut it, IMO.

Weird colour blothces in Hi Iso shots that sometimes disappear in preview and then reappear but are always there on output. And the NR sliders make no sense to me since the effect seems very vaguely related to the setting.

Too bad, seems very hard to make anything better than ACR - or even equal.
