  • Cool. Apart from the RAW converter and the camera limitations for Capture One, that sounds great. Not sure about the differences with the digital simulations and the film emulations: https://www.co ...
  • Hi Zooming by wire with the ring seems cool according to some reviews, even if we're not yet fond about the lever. Does it also has something like Image Size Tracking (if the subject is recognized) ...
  • Liveview should indeed be the first thing to check. After a long time manual focusing to get less friction if it's stuck from a long sleep ? In some cases, without lens conversion to screw drive, ...
  • Hi How long did you stored them unused ? I found an old thread here on DPR talking about what seems to be the same problem : https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3897428 If it's really needed in ...
  • @Randy Great point if you can handle a greater system : GFX MF lenses are really amazing and this body offers a lot of things that you are already familiar with I guess ! If you want a smaller ...
  • You're welcome Randy. This company seems to be one (or the only one ?) converting cameras to monochrome. I went IR and later Full Spectrum, but didn't buy from them, so I can't tell how they work. ...
  • Hi You asked for a dedicated camera with a monochrom sensor, but you did not specify your needs regarding lenses ? If you still have an obsolete/unused camera you're still familiar with, why not ...
  • "Les goûts et les couleurs, ça ne se discute pas." Each to is own, but I found that the second one is better in BW and the first one in colors. Nice works ! Keep sharing your Shellworlds if you're ...
  • Hi I love the first one which is well balanced with the two appealing textures next to each other and the better lighting: harsh light and fill light are well designed. And I like the grain curves ...
  • Replied in Three down
    Hi Thanks for posting. Good one : you can emphasize cropping and keeping only the upper half ? I love how the Assembly in the painting is waiting for this man's deliberations ! I guess you have ...
  • Linux base and a GPL SDK would be great but unfortunately I haven't seen lots of communications about Pentax latest SDK on github or such. I guess that phyisical dials are some of the most useful ...
  • An updated K-01 rebranded by Ricoh as a GR FF ? The GR is already cool. Take the ergonomics of the GR II & III that makes them so great for street photography, add modern AF capabilities if ...
  • Hi Just RAW converter artifacts ? Which software and version ? Do you get the same artifacts with another RAW converter ? Be it Lightroom/CaptureOne/DXO/whatever (download free trial if needed). Or ...
  • Hi Jeremie Thanks a lot for the thorough answer. I'll have to came back for all the technical details ! Even more impressive when I start to discover what's under the hood to get such amazing ...
  • Gorgeous and impressive Jeremie ! Bravo ! Quite an impressive setup too. Amazing how many pictures you had to shoot and stack for such a tiny portion of this flower. How large is this small african ...
  • You can find here a quick look on DXO PL5. Lots of comparisons too in the comments with On1, Capture One, and others. Faster than DXO PL4, but I guess that One1 would still be faster for noise ...
  • Hi Another great series and fine results OOC ! Just in case, since DxO PhotoLab 5.0.0, you should also use the Deep Prime post processing mode to retrieve more details at 6400 ISO from your RAW ...
  • It seems that Sony already had an answer a few years ago to switch aliasing ON/OFF in the RX1R Mark II (with the same 42Mpx sensor) ... using variable voltage to adjust the effect, on the go, even ...
  • It depends on your needs : high Mpx and/or textile photo shoots with living models. ;-) With Pentax you can use the same camera without AA filter for maximum details when there is no artifact, or ...
  • What print size are you expecting for your customers ? Which kind of events ? Weddings ? Low light and/or action events ? Classical concert ? Another option you did not mention : second hand, A7 ...
