  • I do like the results you are getting in RawTherapee.  I looked through your message, while I could see the SPP settings you used for output, I didn't see what the Raw Therapy settings you used... ...
  • I want a sensor that is a single pixel high, and 56 million pixels wide.  The ultimate pano camera with stitching.  I also want two lens mounts on front just like pro cameras have two SD slots.
  • I really can't understand the final analysis you gave, at all.  In all of the 100% examples I looked at I preferred the details and color of the SD-1... In that first 100% example, there's more ...
  • It's not set this way by default but it's worth knowing the SD1 has a menu option that puts the mirror up at the start of the timer, not before the shot... I'm not sure where the menu option is ...
  • I have used Canon remote flash triggers without issue - mostly a pocketwizard. Don't forget to keep in mind the flash sync speed of your camera.  In general the Canon pin-outs seem to match up ...
  • The thing is, the design is actually better than a lot of other cameras. I generally prefer how the Sigma camera controls have worked to other camera designs... and the body designs have usually ...
  • The other response mentioned you can save X3F settings for each image you edit in SPP, then select them all for export and use the "X3F" settings to process them all... One other thing that makes ...
  • Replied in Link is fixed
    n/t
  • I personally would like to share images with a higher bit depth and especially color profile.  The problem is also who can see them though - it's only supported by Microsoft browsers as far as I ...
  • I found the 8-16 on the SD-1 hit or miss, at least at 8mm... at 16mm it works better. However the lens has such a wide range of DOF that I usually just set it to something a little below infinity, ...
  • Replied in Next Phase
    That's pretty interesting all by itself! Now what would be even more interesting, if you have the inclination, is to do the same series, once for every 0.5 adjustment in the Sharpness slider... so ...
  • When I was looking at the issue I came to realize the same thing - at 100% you get the same effect from pretty much any camera, with varying strengths.  Bayer conversion applied a lot of ...
  • I don't know how well the lenses would work exactly, except that sensor-size size they should be fine since the H sensor is still somewhat smaller than a 35mm film frame.
  • In the last update for SFD, processing with some motion seemed to get a lot better to me - below is a closer SFD shot of a waterfall in action.  If you have some SFD shots, try re-processing. ...
  • Always nice to see with some snow on it I think...
  • The SD1 is still a great camera, and it did receive some nice updates over time.  However the one thing that may hamper you is a somewhat small buffer and it is very slow to save, on the order of ...
  • Replied in Disagree
    Looking at the histogram it looks properly exposed to me because you can see a significant amount of red near the top end, and a bit of other color channel data as well.  It's just that the scales ...
  • Replied in pot plant
    I like it, though I'm from Colorado and was expecting a different sort of leaf.  :-)
  • It's hard to say as it might have been in the processing, but the highlights in the red robe to the right seem slightly better preserved in the X3F version - also the white fabric under the robe. ...
  • The turn on times are greatly improved if you set the camera t use the Lock slider as camera sleep, then you just leave the camera on and put it to sleep or wake it up with the lock slider on top ...
