  • If this sub-thread is about differences from Lightroom, that isn't one of them. Lightroom can also crop nondestructively because the full frame can be restored at any time, and there are at least ...
  • If you think the color balance and overall density of the print looks good, and the only thing wrong is that it is too dark, the only thing you might have to do to be happy is turn down the ...
  • It's no different than how any other photographic artifact is seen. It is loved when it is used for a good reason. It is hated when it appears to be used as the "lazy way out", like if selective ...
  • It sounds like you are only claiming that there is no difference in results between parametric and pixel. That is theoretically correct. But that doesn't mean they're the same, because there are si ...
  • Sure. I do that, and maybe we haven't altered the original image, but that doesn't mean it's the same as a parametric edit. The problem is that if I then alter the base under the healing, the ...
  • You need both because neither is a complete solution, both have disadvantages. Parametric editing is 100% nondestructive and lets you have infinite history, but the constant re-rendering from raw ...
  • I wouldn't go that far. You don't have to forget about tagging the original raw files, because as many of us have said, most DAMs tag raw files, and some can convert those to DNG which is still ...
  • Not true for editing, only upload. For editing, companies get around that problem using server proxy strategies like Smart Previews in Lightroom. The original raw is in the cloud and a much ...
  • Once a week nozzle check is good enough for my Epson, some weeks I only do that and not a full print. There might be a clogged nozzle or two sometimes, but once a week means it can be cleared up ...
  • You do have file organization with Photoshop, it's Adobe Bridge. If you put Bridge and Camera Raw together, you have a feature set roughly comparable to the Library and Develop modules in ...
  • This is a hard question to answer without making it about a specific point in time, since programmers keep improving how the applications use cores, GPU, etc. As an example here is the progress ...
  • They can be tagged and read independently of platform. For example, if you tag in the Lightroom CC app on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android, the tags appear in the Lightroom CC apps on all those ...
  • Because Panasonic mirrorless bodies are known for high-quality video, they have offered lenses with power zoom for some time already. Some come with "Video Optimized Power O.I.S with Silent Drive" ...
  • This isn't a new discussion. There were articles about this when HD video became a thing 10 years ago. Some pro sports photographers realized that the 2.1 megapixels of an HD video camera were ...
  • Yes, that is a risk mentioned at the Battery University website. It is less of a risk for batteries for newer products which probably get cycled through stock relatively quickly. But it's a ...
  • Profiles are usually provided for "pro" printers, and not very common for the printers aimed at business offices or consumers. I think that's why you could only find a profile for the Canon ...
  • That is true. I was thinking of the more common uses of Li-ion like phones and laptops. With cameras, it only happens when an old camera is left in the closet for years. The camera does shut off ...
  • I do know it must be well above zero so that the does not drop below the charge threshold where the battery cannot be revived, but I don't know why a higher percentage isn't as good. Both Apple ...
  • I have a 10-year-old Panasonic compact that they don't make batteries for, but even today it is a great camera it's still in use. A company called Watson started making aftermarket batteries for ...
  • Replied in So far...
    My last B&H order arrived a day earlier than stated. That was the normal free shipping. Yes, that's exactly what it's like. You walk in, look around, and go "wowwwwwww..." Don't forget to look up ...
