  • Correct, you cannot mix 'n match systems with Hz, you must use 50Hz with PAL and 60Hz with NTSC. Basic. Ah,  the famous "somebody" told you. No actual facts need be involved. The frame rate is half ...
  • Right. Wrong. PAL has a greater number of lines per frame, so it is higher quality (in practice you probably wouldn't see much difference). Note that in Europe, the mains frequency is 50Hz (like ...
  • This is a photo coffee group, right? and none of you has thought of actually picking up a camera and taking the aforesaid photographs? Don't dispute it, do it! That's how I learned, and that was ...
  • OK, without hijacking the thread, you could look at Lightroom and ACDsee as simple solutions. If you use Adobe Bridge, you can easily edit the IPTC fields, but it is not a catalog solution. There ...
  • That's fine, most people do. My point to the OP is that you should figure out what your own requirements are before you decide on a structure That makes sense, but they may want some way to read ...
  • If you can find the Adobe Photography package (Lr Classic + Ps + Lr CC) then I would go with that. If you want to manage files on your own HDDs, you need to use Lr Classic. You may not need ...
  • Unfortunately the camera doesn't know that this was the most recently used data because the data is no longer there. As far as the camera is concerned, it is all just empty, re-usable memory space ...
  • OK. I tried the same thing on my tablet (one screen) instead of my desktop (dual monitors) in case it was a display issue but I could still move the Ps window around. Then I noticed that with ACR ...
  • I'm on Windows 10 and I can't replicate your problem. I can have an image open in Photoshop, open another image in ACR and I can move the Ps window behind it without any trouble even with the ACR ...
  • First, it will help to get the terminology correct: It's Arca Swiss The baseplate fits into the camera tripod socket The tripod head clamp either comes as part of the ballhead assembly or fits onto ...
  • It would be helpful if you identified the DxO product, the old version and the new version you are referring to, eg: Photolab v1.2 compared with v1.1 or whatever. I think DxO have always claimed ...
  • I've been running Synology NAS for years with no problems. Take a look at their web site - they have products that will take very large volumes of data storage which you can use in any RAID ...
  • To be honest, I thought the original shot looked better. Having been to Venice several times, I know that many of the campanile towers are not actually vertical, due to subsidence on the soft ...
  • The first one looks like about 35mmm or 50mm at fairly wide aperture (around f4 to f5.6) with focus stacking applied. Look at the way the sharpness falls off very quickly on the rear quarter ...
  • They adjust one of those variables but they do so relative to the value "recommended" by the camera's metering system, and only if you are using one of the auto (Av, Tv) modes. This allows you to ...
  • Can you provide a link to any information about this? PM has been talking about adding DAM facilities for almost as long as it has existed but I have never seen any concrete evidence of this ...
  • Unfortunately, with the methodology you have implemented, you will never get any kind of consistency, either in terms of exposure, color balance or image positioning. No way will you be able to do ...
  • Do you have color balance on auto? Are you using natural light or artificial lighting. Are you wearing the same color clothes every time or is the  camera reacting to clothing color changes? Is the ...
  • A Polarizer will not reduce haze, it will only increase your exposure time. From memory, Jaisalmer is pretty hot so you may be talking about heat haze which will be evident when shooting from the ...
  • OK, you've been given a number of replies that address the issues of poor composition and the unfortunate fact that you will get some 0.5 and 1.0 votes regardless of how good a photograph is. ...
