  • What I hope for is a 24 MP organic sensor that combines the DR and high ISO performance Panasonic claims to have achieved in separate sensors. With just this one change J6 IQ would threaten DX, let ...
  • DxOMark gives you a comparison of the two .  Here is their field map for CA and here for sharpness
  • Generally I find I am the slowest component in the photographic chain these days...
  • Replied in Train geeks
    Thanks for posting those, they have a nice mood.  I was trying to figure out if Tornado was still coal-fired or whether that tender was just for decoration--the small amount of exhaust looked more ...
  • Thanks for posting those.  I like in-motion shots as much as perfectly posed ones.
  • I wish it was possible, because I would have my Olympus 75 1.8 on the J5 in a heartbeat.  Damn E-M5 can't focus it in light where the J5 and 70-300 has no problem.
  • I particularly like the aerobatics shot!  Watching these fly one often sees them dive bombing down like that, before flaring up to the perch they want. Here are a couple of my recent shots.  J5 and ...
  • Rick's camera closet ("bag" is too wimpy a concept) has so many Sigmas, he ditches anything else. I agree, keep the GR, and use it too.  I keep the A to remind myself that (1) good photographs are ...
  • If it makes you feel any better (?) the upper left hand corner is not perfect: Although the histogram suggests it is not really a problem. I've looked at a couple dozen X3F and the "constellation" ...
  • Here is a large bottom right region selected And its histogram
  • I've just realized the previous RawDigger does not show you what you want; you want a region chosen from a dark area of the image so that the bright pixels, if any, are easily seen.  This may be ...
  • I assume you are talking about the "A Slight Merrill Disappointment" thread.  Note that the JPG I uploaded had been processed in DxO and then downsampled.  Perhaps this look at the X3F helps, though:
  • DP1M and Coolpix A user here--this combo is similar to DP1M and GR.  I agree with most of what ChristianHass said, although I tend to use more NR and I export to DxO instead of Lightroom.  A few ...
  • One poster claims that the value of NCC depends on the design of the lens, and that it is not just a generically useful coating to be applied to many surfaces.  This lens diagram for the 60 2.8 ...
  • I thought I recognized the signs of substantial fill, but I don't know that you could have done much better in SPP. Since it's not so dependent on color for its impact, a black and white rendition ...
  • Looks like an interesting museum! I don't think the last one is a Sabre, since the stabilators are mounted on the vertical tail instead of on the fuselage, and it's not the usual bubble canopy.  It ...
  • Nice job with the pano: a casual look did not reveal any stitching artifacts. Like you with Q, I am finding with DPxM that max luminance NR is needed (see here ) if you want a clean sky--and then ...
  • I do crop/geometry corrections before Piccure+ and resizing after. I use IrfanView for resize since I can choose whether to re-sharpen or not, based on how it looks after resizing.
  • I've been using Piccure+ with several different cameras.  For the DPxM I find it best to export from SPP into TIFF for import into Piccure+, and then use Quality+, Micro, 0 Rendering, and just 1 ...
  • The Imaging Resource reviews agrees they are very similar in performance: http://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/nikon/1-10-30mm-f3.5-5.6-nikkor-vr/review/ http://www.imaging-resource.com/lenses/ni ...
