  • My tip for most animal photos, get the camera down and shoot level at them, eye-to-eye. And get a lot closer, fill the frame with their beady-eyed little faces, either by zooming or moving the ...
  • I liked Photo Suite 9 well enough, and still keep 10 installed.  In fact 10 is what I use the most.  It has access to all of the same filters and presets, it works directly with Nikon Raw files, ...
  • Yep.  And next pay a hundred bucks and start the whole process over again. Affinity, on the other hand...  I bought their software for $35 eighteen months ago, and they're still sending me free ...
  • I can't even imagine how many pages of posts one would have to browse through to get back six years in time. I think it's people stumbling across ancient posts using a Google search and they join ...
  • They've been running promotions lately, buy 2018 for $whatever and get 2019 as a free upgrade when it comes out. My guess for Sept 25, a 2019 beta.  And you know how much fun On1 Betas always are.  :-D
  • Being priced competitively with other HDR programs such as those I mentioned above would certainly attract more buyers.  But enough new buyers to make up for the lower prices, and still cover the ...
  • Many photographers do, especially in hazardous conditions. But be sure to take it off when shooting at night. And be extra careful when shooting in the daylight that the light isn't shining onto ...
  • There are 7 Billion people on the planet, so it's reasonably safe to say that your personal choice when it comes to mass-produced consumer products makes no difference whatsoever. Except to your ...
  • They added DxO logos and improved compatibility with some Apple computers. We had a good discussion about the differences here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4289840 You can also still get ...
  • It looks like now you have to trade your email address for the download link, but it's a fair deal.  You can cancel the emails easily enough. Or perhaps you'll get lucky.  I recently received an ...
  • I wouldn't mind having two separate non-compatible systems, but only if they were significant differences - as if the photos that each took could not be replicated by the other. I don't think ...
  • No, they are NOT. Both Nikon and Canon have introduced new bodies and lenses recently, and will continue to do so for a very long time. Why you spread such rubbish to new shoppers? Sure, lol. If ...
  • I thought I'd post a couple of examples. I have the Nikon 70-300, which is probably comparable to the 75-300 that comes with that $500 Canon kit. It's not a good lens for sports at night; when it ...
  • Yes. Consider complimenting it with Effects 10.5, free software from On1, for creating and applying stylized effects.

  • My gripes with On1 RAW, I hated that it opened raw files in Layers instead of Develop, and in some circumstances it created massive PSD files without asking or prompting. I didn't pay for the 2018 ...
  • Heaven knows there are plenty of ways to screw up a photo, especially at night. But there are few methods so sure to be successful as leaving a filter on the lens. These examples of ruined photos ...
  • I know what you mean.  Their raw developing has greatly improved since it was first released.  Affinity wasn't very good at all in the beginning either. You can always use a dedicated raw ...
  • Replied in Smartphone?
    Sure.  lol. Have you seen cell phone pictures taken from the stands at football games?  Utterly futile and useless.  From what I've seen, the primary purpose of holding up cell phones in the air ...
  • I like Gerry's post. The T6 is a great camera, and with an interchangeable lens system you get a quality product that can be expanded and upgraded in the future. I would avoid the Amazon bundles ...
