Kendall Helmstetter Gelner's recent activity

  • I like the angle and framing of the shot, I think I would have liked to see a picture with the people where they are in the first image, and the train as it is in the second... but the people were ...
  • Something to think about, attend WPPI in Las Vegas - Feb 27th. Probably some of the makers of CRM software you are interested in will be there (you could email and ask if they plan to attend) so ...
  • Packing cubes seem like a great idea, but to me those kinds of things tend to take up a lot of space. I have a backpack with dividers I can re-position, which I like quite a bit as I can have very...

  • If you are at all concerned about weight you should look into the Vanguard Alta Rise 48 Backpack - I bought one for an international trip early last year, where I had a weight limit on how much my...

  • I think that supports a maximum 4K refresh rate of 30Hz, and doesn't support 10-bit color - DisplayPort output supports something like 60Hz
  • It may depend on what version you got.  There was an earlier 50-150 I used for a while, that I thought was great... but a later model of the 50-150 I tried (possibly the current version?) that I ...
  • I would say it is, because part of being an owner of a more uniquely sensored camera, is having to spend some effort figuring out the best ways to work images for various uses, that may not be ...
  • It wasn't really about a print being something "better" to judge, it was more that we wanted to show a camera with supposedly a low pixel count compared to other cameras could produce very ...
  • Rick Decker and I did most of the prints for those... The files were usually processed in SPP to taste, I seem to remember I did upsampling and then sharpening in Photoshop. The differences between ...
  • What exif are some apps leaving out?  Curious.
  • Replied in I think it is
    I had zero issues with Mojave, even on older laptops (2013 and 2010 vintage). I think the iPhone X I have now, is THE best phone I have ever had, by a huge margin.  I don't plan to upgrade it for a ...
  • Replied in A for effort!
    Even if the result was not perfect, I still admire your spirit in trying! It's also a good lesson as to the importance of recent scouting, I've also had trees (or buildings) rise up in places I did ...
  • While I wait for snow to come before taking a picture of some outdoor Christmas lights as was my plan, I've been playing around with different editing applications including Luminar3 and Affinity ...
  • They have relative limitations compared to more modern cameras.  But every generation of Sigma camera has improved on this, I would say more than marginally - especially going from an SD-15 to a ...
  • Thanks - Merry Christmas to you and all as well!
  • What I’ve been doing is outputting a final jpg file I want to push out somewhere,  then running it through Retrobatch to add a few things whatever image editor I’m using cannot do - in my case I’m ...
  • I’m not sure I can recommend a specific kind, but one consideration you may want to make is - how much battery do you think you may need for a day? If you know you’ll be needing a battery mid day, ...
  • By *exact* star ratings?  Like "only three-star images, no higher, no lower" - All apps I've seen with filtering (again except for Aperture) go for "this rating or higher".  Apollo One is the only ...
  • Just started looking over and processing my fall images, the one I think I liked most is this one (Sigma Quattro-H with the 8-16mm lens): https://www.flickr.com/photos/kigiphoto/45515414655 Etheria ...
  • Well, we don't really know that for sure - one thing we do know for sure, is that companies making L-Mount lenses will be testing to make sure they work on all L-Mount cameras, instead of having ...
