  • If your original is JPEG, it seems to me that GIMP is a better editor than Darktable, which I consider more a Raw converter + editor + photo organizer. Never thought I would find a use for the ...
  • Replied in zzzzz.....
    Thanks Gavin, I missed hearing about the firmware update. Default settings, most likely. Does performance mode drain the battery more? If that firmware update improves AF by 50-100%, then the ...
  • Why does the image on right from the X-T3 have "better Fuji colors" with more blue reflecting from the lens? That is the principal difference I see, and is why I prefer the X-T3 image.
  • Replied in zzzzz.....
    Well, the X-T2 autofocuses in about 1/20 of a second (0.053 second) with the 60/2.4 lens, according to I-R. That is what one would expect from PDAF. https://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/fuji-x-t2 ...
  • You could be correct. I do not use Lightroom and probably never well. However: https://www.color-management-guide.com/color-management-in-lightroom.html "If you shoot in RAW, the default color ...

    Well, perhaps Thom's research about PDAF is as accurate as his spelling of a certain French copyright-protected beverage that tastes worse than beer despite its high price. According to I-R the ...

    The Thom Hogan comment was was interesting (not zzzzz!) so I searched and found this: http://www.sansmirror.com/newsviews/2018-mirrorless-camera/april-june-2018-newsviews/the-fujifilm-x-a5-gets-a.html
  • Even if the image is in ProPhoto RGB color space, and properly tagged, Irfanview with color management enabled and LCMS plug-in installed should be able to display it properly. That is sensible ...
  • You could follow the link, which is "where I got this." Optical Limits, formerly Photozone.de, came to a similar conclusion. http://www.opticallimits.com/fuji_x/746-fuji35f14?start=1 Most very fast ...
  • Do you have Irfanview set for color management? It is not on by default. Also in order to make it work you must install the plug-ins. LCMS anyway.
  • Please report back, if you remember, with your satisfaction level. Does this allow you to have 2-factor authentication by supplying your fingerprint (or password) and plugging YubiKey and OTG ...
  • I believe Joachim's point is that the depth of field is so shallow close-up at f/1.4 that you have no way to focus precisely. If you use manual focus, your eye can't really tell, even with focus ...
  • The Spectre x360 models are 2-in-1 and include pen, but come with only 13" and 15" screens. The 13" ones are less expensive and the 15" ones are more expensive. I guess if you're using Lightroom ...
  • Thanks for the lead, Bob. Do you have a YubiKey 5 with NFC for holding against the back of your phone? I see the YubiKey in many form factors (USB-A or USB-C, either long or short) but it looks ...
  • Is that true? I don't know why it would differ so much from SD, but you may be correct. Anyhow, compared to a regular (not micro) SD card, CF is about 40% faster. The limit of CF interface: ~160 ...
  • No, the OP did not mention PNG, but it's good to see that W10 covers PNG and TIFF. Doesn't Irfanview generate thumbnails based on ORF embedded preview? It does for RAF. If it were me, I would use ...
  • I don't use W10 for photography, only as little as possible when they pay me. Since nobody else responded to your question, I suggest posting under a different title. Ask about "codec packs" for ...
  • As far as I know without having run it, Kubuntu 16.04 has KDE Plasma desktop. According to Wikipedia it is Plasma 5.5. Kubuntu 18.04 and 18.04.1 provide Plasma 5.12. Mint used to have a KDE ...
  • Yes, thanks to Billiam, I will update to Mint 19 ASAP. I really like LO Writer's new Tools in the Sidebar feature. Also, look'n'feel of all LibreOffice programs is much improved. The Gnu C compiler ...
  • It is very popular nowadays to have all thumbnails in the same aspect ratio, i.e. all look like landscapes, with people portraits cropped, top and bottom, to fit. This morning I noticed this on ...
