  • @IdM have you tried the scene comparison tool?

  • @MILC Man I don’t know what your experience, but on the A7IV, I can be looking through the EVF while using my thumb to pinpoint focus on the rear LCD (which shows as an orange cross in the EVF)....

  • Haven’t been tracking this. Is it only for Sony cameras, or is someone being paranoid?

  • Which is perfect for me as my left hand is usually holding/cradling my lens. Of course, you might be one of those people who holds both ends of the body in your hands and uses only the lightest of...

  • Workers wages tend to be higher in China than in Thailand or Vietnam

  • A lot of their cameras and lenses have been made in thailand for a long time. Here’s a 2011 article about the impact of the floods that year:...

  • I thought Tik Tok was all about women dancing in bikinis and China nationalists trying to sow discord in the West. Didn’t realise you could find serious videos there. Learn something new every day…

  • Thanks for your detailed response and explanation. Nothing that I disagree with in principle. I will only note that the CA correction settings I used are the defaults set by PL6, not adjustments ...
  • That’s what I recently set as my default over the out-of-the-box HQ and keep it on for good light photos. I just assumed it would be faster than DeepPrime on the grounds it’s more hardware ...
  • Replied in Or maybe not...
    I'm not much of a corners pixel peeper, so I had missed the purple fringing and am  appreciative of Kaj's catching it. Turns out that in my default setting, the 'purple fringe' correction was ...
  • Thanks for catching that. I went back to check, and for some reason in my defaults, the purple fringing removal is not checked nor is the auto-size setting for CA. I've added those to my default ...
  • "maybe you should learn how to use mask." That comment wasn't necessary. But, yes, it appears that object selection will do the same job as PL auto mask (though it seems like you're saying that it ...
  • The only thing I 'removed' from the PL default PL lens corrections (which I apply to all images at the start) is CA removal. I have one lens, a 55mm f1.8 where you REALLY need it. But I didn't ...
  • Below is a crop of a 1000 year old Khmer Buddha statue. ACR (LR) could not find it with any of the AI masking options. Colour range probably wouldn't work given the palette. So I suppose I'm left ...
  • Corrections were applied in ACR as part of my default setup. I also sharpened both images in both programmes (have defaults set for both) ... I then adjusted so they looked equally sharp at the ...
  • It's a simple ask: what is the masking scenario PL6 cannot handle? You avoid the question and deflect. At least Annie (below) came up with a good challenge. I wasn't sure myself how PL6 would ...
  • Nice skyline - is it Hong Kong? OK, this is my rushed attempt. Large auto-select masking brush swept across the sky in a single stroke. One extra click on the area of colour in the sky. I could ...
  • Yes, I've said the AI subject detection is unique to ACR/LR. Otherwise, all those mask combinations are equally possible in PL6.  My question remains: is there a masking scenario that can only be ...
  • PL6 on the left, ACR/LR on the right: Centre roughly equally sharp. But PL6 image (left) is sharper in the corner than the ACR/LR image ...  also note that PL6 squeezes out a few more extra pixels ...
