  • I developed a batch of RAW files in Lightroom on my two-year old DELL XPS laptop (6-core Core i7) in five minutes. I sent the same RAW files to a friend who developed them in Lightroom on his Mac...

  • Well for me an APS-C isn't good enough. My travel choice is a Nikon Z5 with a 24-200mm lens in a LowePro TAHOE bag that is considered by all airlines as an accessory that goes in the cabin in all ...
  • Good review. For some reason I find these two more believable than the other reviews on Youtube.

  • Replied in Use DXO profiles
    People alsways say that I do wonderful black-and-white with nice deep blacks and good grey tones. I don't tell them that I just apply the standard DXO Photolab Black and White profile to my images ...
  • I suspect that the readout of data from the sensor on the Z5 is slower than on the other Z series cameras. The maximum FPS is half that of the Z6 and the video is also limited. As focussing is ...
  • Replied in I like mine
    I have a D850 and all the F lenses that I need. But for travelling I prefer something that is cheaper, smaller, lighter, and yet still has FF quality. The Z5 with the 24-200 and a few Z prime ...
  • Replied in Bigger sensor
    In my experience a bigger sensor is mre important than a better quality lens because most of my subjects are in the center of the frame. A poor quality lens usually show up its shortcomings ...
  • Replied in Hyperthreading..
    Most Intel CPU's have Hyperthreading which allows each core to run two threads making it look like the system has twice as many cores as it really does. RAW development - using software like DXO - ...
  • Replied in Plugins
    I suspect that my friend running Windows 7 wants to use a Photoshop plugin that someone has sent him. And he can't because his Photoshop is 32 bit and the plugin is for 64 bit. Hence his sudden ...
  • I used to have a Surface 3 which I took with me on travels. It convinced me NOT to develop my RAW files when I was out in the field but to wait till I was at home with a big screen and loads of ...
  • I have a friend who is looking at buying a new PC to replace his Windows 7 boxes. I'm advising him to just migrate to Windows 10 and hold off on buying a new box if he doesn't absolutely have to ...
  • The sensor in the Z5 is the same as in the D750 - with the addition of the on-sensor things to make the autofocus work. So it's not really the same. The sensor in the Z6 is BSI i.e. the wiring is ...
  • I have a close friend who is delighted with his change to the Z6 from the D600. In particular he says that the autofocus is far better. With the D600 he was getting too many out-of focus shots. He ...
  • I find that FF gives me a result that is richer and more sensual than APS-C - when used on a subject that is suited (I do lots of photos with models, fashion, nudes, lighting effects).  I gave up ...
  • On my DSLR I rarely need focus-recompose. I use face-detect a lot and that works pretty well plus the focussing is always quick and accurate, even in continuous-focussing mode. On paper my ...
  • I use the 24-120 on the D850 (and the D800 before that). I like it a lot. It never really disappoints me. The resolution is way short of my 50mm and 85mm primes but it's enough. I use it for ...

  • The 24-200Z lens effectively replaced a 28-300G lens. I always avoided using it at maximum aperture because while the center of the image was sharp enough the rest of the image just wasn't for ...
  • I have exactly the lenses that I need. There are some that get much less usage than others: - the 200-500 is essential for air displays but with COVID there aren't any - the 18-35 is useful for ...
  • We're in 2021 already. I voted for the 24-105 - which I would buy if there was a Z body that was as good as my D850 at about the same price point. At the moment the one I'm really waiting for is ...
