About me:

I study semiconductor devices. I travel and backpack and climb pointy things.


Tamron 17-50 2.8 (all purpose, sharpish, fast enough for most occasions)
Canon 100mm Macro 2.8 (Macro, portrait, tele)
Canon 35 2.0 (lite, sharp, fast, some CA, ok walkaround)
Sigma 10-20 EX (some heft, good build, nice wide)

Panasonic LX3 (lite, small, 24mm, good battery, movies)

Slik Mini Pro Tripod (311g but very short, we will see...)

  • Replied in Exposure X4
    Looks like there is Exposure X4 as well.
  • I did a bunch of conversion with it and I do generally read the docs before I use stuff for too long if it isn't obvious what I should do. I found darktable's documents helpful on the modules ...
  • Glad you found a system that you like. Not my goal.
  • Depending on how often you switch cameras even if that is completely true some paid ones would still be much less expensive, than LR. Indeed even if you purchased a new camera every other year ...
  • Its an option. But given some of the listed are free and some of the listed have interesting features that go beyond LR and are not expensive its worth considering switching away from Adobe. For ...
  • There is a big learning curve for some of the ones I listed. A lot of people have more than one camera type and don't want to use DPP for their Canon and something else for their Fuji etc. (just ...
  • FWIW that's not a review, that's a news story. This post isn't about what software is best just what is available.
  • Sorry I should have said that I won't consider vendor specific RAW software as that is a time investment that is not portable. I use GIMP but I feel it is more photoshop/camera raw competitor than ...
  • Created discussion thread RAW processor software
    Hi All, I'm considering getting a camera that is beyond the support of the last version of Lightroom that was perpetual as a result I am looking into the state of raw photo processors again. I know ...
  • That is a legit point. I don't review much on my XPro2 either and a swipe/pinch is easier than lots of buttons for that. But the touch/focus point thing doesn't do anything for me, which is what...

  • I don't think the touchscreen will do anything for me. I picked Fuji's system after all because it had dials in part. 26 vs 24 MP is not significant (again less noise). If the EVF is indeed somehow...

  • I get the focus and film/movie improvements, but is there anything significant in this camera for non-sports stills photographers over the X-T2?

    The back side illumination might be slightly lower...

  • @The Davinator

    Of course the resists and developers for the photo-lithography used to make CMOS sensor are toxic and harsh chemicals; the difference is in volume and integrated cost to the...

  • @CarpentersEye

    Never implied I got to decide for anyone else. If you want to look at all my Velvia, Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Tri-X, T-Max things from before 2002, you of course are welcome. But I...

  • The environmental impact of film relative to digital makes it no longer viable in my book. Chemistry, film, shipping all those disposable things around... It does cost dollars per 36 for a reason...
