  • Thank you very much. That's a lot of information! I bought a simple demagnifier that is used to magnetize and also demagnetise screwdrivers (hope, it will arrive, tomorrow). I did not buy that ...
  • Does anybody know what's the reason for the solenoid problems. I know that they replaced good and reliable solenoid with a lttle less expensive "lousy" one. However, I am not sure why the solenoid ...
  • I did not do much B&W photography in the more than 40 years I am on my way with SLR and DSLR cameras. I remember on B&W series which would not have worked good in colour: I made these B&W photos as ...

    Dear Ozdean, It is joy to look at all the nice photos you share with us. And it may be even more joy to imagine the joy you must have had when you took them! Best wishes, Holger
  • Dear ozdean, I have seen the video and I am not of same opinion with him. Using a FF lens in crop mode and to compare it with a lens made for the cropped situation means that you will have to shift ...
  • Regarding print sizes and aspect ratio I made a nice experience with a lab in Germany. I gave my photos with different aspect ratios for making paper based photos from them. The size of to the ...
  • If you work with a nifty-50 or a wide angle lens, OK. If you work within macro range or long tele things are different. I use my camera not just for making photos but also as optical tool for ...
  • There is still the advantage of DSLR to deliver a real-world view on the screen. There will always people who prefer it this way. And if you look at records: when CD was on its way and even more ...
  • Dear all, I did a little extra research with my slwo (but working) system. I recognized that I did not set the enegrgy setting to maximum power but to a balanced system. Selecting maximum power ...
  • For me it is fast enough. I like the latest version with a much improved masking option. It look like it masks in most cases the relevant parts. This was I can star my batch and let the computer ...
  • The 50 mm and also the 35 mm lens should work very good on your K1. These lightweight plastic-fantastic lenses are good performers also on FF. Thus, you would have 35 mm - 50 mm and also 100 mm. I ...
  • Just did the test with my 3 year old computer. With latest Topas Sharpen A.I. version (3.3.1): 645 sec (10:45 min) Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz 3.19 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 32 GB RAM
  • Maybe not enough memory on that card. If you look to the retouching forum, there is one thread where a card that I would rate as "still good enough" failed to work with the latest version of Topaz ...
  • Two last ideas from my side: First, I would expect that the graphics card will support the program better than CPU does. I have Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20GHz 3.19 GHz which is not the ...
  • If you go to the preferences settings (menu: File - Preferences) in the unit "Processing/Save)" you can set "allowed memory consumption". I have set it to "High". There is an information for this ...
  • Which Topaz Sharpen AI version do you use? There were some problems with version 3.3.0. I just installed 3.3.1 which works without problems. Masking is much improved. Best regards Holger
  • I never saw an unbranded lens. Some brand name was on every lens I own - and also I have seen (and I am active on ebay on search for old gems). The names may say nothing to you and me - however, ...
  • Dear Tom, that does not look good. I have seen good results with medical foam. It looks like material you could also find in mattress - and this was the way it was invented: In a not so well ...
  • The press has different rights. However, the rules are based on European right. This way they will not change that fast. There was much discussion about this law when it became active a couple of ...
  • You can have a look ath google street view in Germany - you will hardly find content! However, the problem was not the the law that blocks the publication of photos with people on it. I think that ...
