  • Thanks Simon. I realised that though the ColorMunki is not supported by ColorNavigator, it's own software still runs perfectly well, so I used that to generate a profile.  I guess not as accurate ...
  • Created discussion thread Help with new monitor, please
    Running under Win 10 I have just taken delivery of an EIZO CS2420 (to replace my failing Dell Ultrasharp). I don't have a suitable calibration device (my ColorMunki Dsisplay is not supported) so I ...
  • That sounds like one of the bugs reported as fixed. Dave
  • New release 7.4 for June may help? https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/whats-new.html Dave
  • For these kind of images, I would certainly use a single central focus point (on the deer, of course), then lock focus with a half press, say, and recompose. That should help you establish where ...
  • Yes, well aware, thank you, even without the bold text. But, I have also read posts where the OP did not understand that, and thought that "constant aperture" meant literally that. Thank you, and ...
  • All lenses are variable F stop. Some zoom lenses are fixed maximum F stop through the zoom, and others variable. Sorry if this is too trivial. Dave
  • Yes, it must be a personal thing.  I shot for a while with a G7 and a GX7, and I didn't find moving between them trivial. OTOH I am still wondering about a smaller (camera!) body.  Probably just a ...
  • My preference is for similar body styles.  I have a G85 and a G7 set up as similarly as is sensible.  That means that I can switch between them without too much thinking - especially important if ...
  • The days when the lens and camera could be regarded as (more or less) separate pieces are long gone. In one of our mft systems they are two parts of an integrated computer system.  Try legacy ...
  • Searching my memory, wasn't the equivalent slider called "Brightness" in one of the old Lightroom process versions? Dave
  • Interesting, and thanks for posting.  I'm nor surprised (not that I knew anything about it), there's a lot going on behind the scenes in ACR. I suspect that, quite reasonably, Adobe has put more ...
  • If you want to see what is happening, get an image of a grey tone wedge and watch the histogram as you move the different sliders.  It's not perfect because the sliders are "image adaptive", but ...
  • A year or two back I had a conversation with a camera store owner about this.  As well as selling to consumers they have major contracts with public bodies and shift a lot of stuff. Anyway, he ...
  • I think probably not.  The Auto button adjusts all of the Basic panel tone adjustments, so it's not just a case of a general brightness increase, though that seems how the OP perceives it - ...
  • Yes, I'd agree with that, certainly a huge improvement over earlier versions. However, although I think the results are quite pleasing, the sliders aren't where I would have put them - especially ...
  • Replied in +1
    This is the key point, which pixelgenius has already explained.  You need to understand how your software works. Dave
  • +1. Couldn't have put it better.  (I'm not in either of your leagues, though!) Dave
  • Replied in Why HDR?
    I don't think so (though I'm no expert). What you are looking to do with HDR is to take a scene whose dynamic range exceeds that of the camera and use bracketing to capture the whole dynamic range ...
