  • Which system are you on? On Linux, the data and preferences are stored inside the user's home folder, while the software itself is installed separately at the system level. I pull updates directly ...
  • Replied in darktable
    darktable, free/open-source, with active and rapid development and has matured for a while. It's very similar to LR, I've been using it the last 4 years exclusively with RAW from my Nikon D5100, ...
  • Yeah, say that to the Overwatch players, especially those Widowmaker mains :-D Aiming headshot with the joystick is hardcore ...
  • YMMV, I guess, I don't have the number from others who are affected. It's not a popular issue, so I assume most people don't even run into it. Perhaps mine just fell into a bad production batch. I ...
  • I disagree though. Why adjust after conversion? For example, if you convert a RAW file to JPG (using a preset or default settings), there's no room for adjustment later. Why not work with all the ...
  • I'm one of the few affected by shutter/mirror shock/slap (whatever you call it), and it affects only VR lenses, to the point that I had to abandon my beloved D5500 + 18-140mm combo (now shooting a ...
  • If your TV supports playing slideshow of photos from a USB storage, then that's the simplest option, just copy the photos to a USB flash drive and use the GUI on TV to control. Otherwise, you'll ...
  • Which country are you in? I believe there's the lemon law in most US states that limit to 3-4 times of repairs. My Dell had a weird problem of the fan running when turned off and plugged, sent it ...
  • Replied in @ Aberaeron !
    :-) Seriously, the digital photos are meant to be viewed differently from printed photos. Because of the high resolution, I tend to view a photo as a whole but also zooming in to view the details. ...
  • I got a Dell 7440 from eBay, refurbished, with 3-year warranty from Dell. My friend also got a Dell G7 gaming laptop refurbished from Dell outlet last month, substantial saving over brand new ...
  • Created discussion thread Godox V860II - $125
    Just saw this deal, posting in Fuji forum specifically because we don't have many choices for flash out there, and the Godox V860II is one of the popular for Fuji users. Haven't seen this on sale ...
  • FWIW, the V860II is on sale for $125, haven't seen any deal on it since last year, a really good deal. https://slickdeals.net/f/12238342-flashpoint-zoom-li-on-r2-ttl-on-camera-flash-speedlight-125-1
  • Replied in Godox sale
    The popular V860II is on sale for $125 (normally $179), very  good deal: https://slickdeals.net/f/12238342-flashpoint-zoom-li-on-r2-ttl-on-camera-flash-speedlight-125-1
  • Replied in Same here
    They take noise samples at various ISO settings, the module will detect the ISO value from EXIF and automatically selects the appropriate noise profile for that ISO. It works well except for the ...
  • Heh, let's not get into the classic debate of RAW vs JPG :-) OP mentioned s/he shoot RAW, so let's stick to that context.
  • Replied in Same here
    Nice! BTW, the new widget in Profiled Denoise is very cool and intuitive to use, allowing visually selecting between smooth and noisy for coarse vs fine details. Together with parametric blending ...
  • I've tried the pano feature on Nikon D5100, D5500, and Fuji X-T20, as well as my Android phones. All of them have the same weakness: they ask you to sweep the camera/phone while they decide when ...
  • Agreed. I ran into a few situations (grey stormy sky, ...) where the only way to have an output with correct colors is to feed the TIFF to Hugin, but I've been lazy most of the times to bother ...
  • I usually process the RAW in darktable before feeding the output JPG to Hugin. The advantage is I can follow the same process for non-pano shots, and I can compress the DR to how I want in ...
  • While I don't use SOOC JPG much, the camera has a few settings that you can tweak to your liking (DR, NR, H-Tone, S-Tone, Sharpness, ...) The default settings on my X-T20 give quite soft JPG, I ...
