  • We, us pano folks, have all been there. The only true way to make a pano like this work is to get out the focal point brackets and tripod. I have one of a mining trestle in SW Colorado that took ...
  • I'm not the OP, but do a LOT of pans. I use ICE for most of my stitching. It is free from Microsoft but doesn't run on Apple, for obvious reasons. For some particularly difficult stitches I use ...
  • I'm a pano guy (see my site listed below). And this is an image you should be very proud of. I could say "not bad for a first panorama". Only I predict that you will be proud of this image years ...
  • Very nice. I have tried to take shots like this and rarely been happy with my results. Most recently in a lighthouse. You did well. Here is my stairway to heaven, taken in Lake Louise, Canada this ...
  • I have a Sirui T1205X tripod and like it very much. The legs fold backwards so it is short when packed. Here is a link to the company page:
  • I have used my 75mm with my extension tube and liked the results.
  • Replied in Moon Rise
    Great resolution. Very nice. The Olympus 75mm isn't bad either (on a GH3). Of course the moon is smaller. :-)
  • I carry my camera and 4 lenses (one on camera) plus other accessories in this: It doesn't ...
  • Yes, it is supposed to be this way. "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."
  • How strong are you? Here is a solution, but it isn't light (3.2 lbs. and more if you get a solar panel). I have one of their larger battery packs to use my computer at a cabin that has limited ...
  • I can't help with comparison of images; I don't own the Summicron. But I tried the Summicron and the Summarit f2.5 on my Monochrom at Photokina in 2014. The new Summarit had just been announced. ...
  • Replied in What is ACR?
    I think you are saying if Lightroom 5 reads in the DNG file from my camera everything is fine. There is nothing in version 6 that will "more properly" read in the file? If so, all is good. I do ...
  • Replied in What is ACR?
    Yes. It opens. I just don't know if it is properly reading the file since Adobe says version 6 is required. No, I don't have the converter. I don't know what profiles. I am just wondering why Adobe ...
  • Replied in What is ACR?
    Then why does Adobe list Lightroom 6 as the minimum version that supports my camera? Are there profiles that are not included in version 5? It can't just be features.
  • Replied in What is ACR?
    Actually, my camera (Leica Monochrom Type 246) creates its RAW files as DNGs. But Adobe lists Lightroom version 6 as the minimum necessary. My current version 5 will read the file and allow me to ...
  • Replied in What is ACR?
    Thank you all for your help. Paige Miller has answered my question and I have marked it as the answer. (Thanks Paige) I hate renting software. So I will check out the DNG converter to see what it ...
  • Created question thread What is ACR?
    What is Adobe Camera RAW? Is it a stand alone program or is it a plugin? If it is only a plugin, what applications other than PS can use it? On1, Corel, etc. ? I have Lightroom 5 and my new camera ...
  • Replied in Not for me
    I forgot. I too hate having to import and catalogue my images just to use Lightroom. No subscription and no cataloguing are two of the biggest features being pushed by On1 for their upcoming RAW ...
  • Replied in Not for me
    Like many, I do not like subscription software. I do use Lightroom, the non-subscription version. I've never really understood what ACR and Bridge do. I think they are free though.
  • Replied in DXO worth it?
    DxO is great if they support your camera and lens combination. I used to use it on my Panasonic images and it was fine. But when I tried to use it on my Leica Monochrom images it was next to ...
