  • When I used a DSLR with OVF I had to rely on the meter and my assessment of the meter's measurements. I switched to mirrorless in 2013, originally because of the lenses I wanted, but no way now ...
  • Here's some more info. I go to the park most days for a walk with my wife. Took my favorite camera along this afternoon -- Fuji X-T2. At the top of the hill we sat on the bench for a rest. Not ...
  • That was the good old days of DSLRs. My mirrorless cameras provide a live-view highlight alert -- much faster. I shoot only raw. My preferred cameras are my Fujis with a live-view highlight alert. ...
  • I'm going to go with you're overthinking this one. I used to teach Zone System practice to college/univ. students. It was the best way to control the film's response curve. Film does that and you ...
  • I looked through that blog post and there's some problems/concerns there with the test he ran. I just ran another test correcting some of those concerns and got a different result. I think all you ...
  • That's why I won't adopt a monochrome sensor camera. They can use a filter over the lens as we used to do with B&W film. But they can't apply the effect of multiple filters in local areas -- I can ...
  • The benefit comes from converting the raw file in a raw processor. Use a B&W film sim if it helps you see the monochrome image but always save the raw original. With the color info in the raw file ...
  • Replied in Local edit
    A difference worth the upgrade for me. I really wanted HSL tool available in local edit and I got it. Luminosity mask is also a big plus. I also like the new interface for local edits.
  • No. Use the same lens (50mm) on both cameras (same subject distance) ( and the image (at sensor) is the same size for both.
  • I have that same function in my Nikon. I never use it as it will often massively underexpose an image. The function can't tell the difference between a diffuse highlight and a specular highlight ...
  • I browsed through some old photos and found this one originally edited in C1: I remember I had wished that stone lantern right foreground was bigger. So I just re-edited it in PL7 and made it ...
  • Replied in Local edit
    So you do most of your editing in a parametric editor like PL7, LR or C1. I'm to the point where I do all of my work in a parametric editor (C1 or PL7) with very rare exception that occurring a ...

    Your editing work is "destroyed." The editing is destructive if an editing element won't update a future change therefore forcing you to re-do work in order to make the change. And yes, I would ...

    Right -- you can clone over the source. And apparently we now know thanks to Digital Nigel that you can enlarge the source and overlay the enlarged version on the source. There's no question the ...

    Well there you go -- works just fine. Pound another nail in that raster editor coffin.
  • Replied in Local edit
    Yep, clone tool will resize. I doubt you could overlay the enlarged version to cover the source but you can do what I did and move the enlarged version and then erase the source. PL7 can't do ...
  • Replied in Local edit
    I doubt he did. PL7's default is to retain all EXIF data and in his photo it's been stripped out. Version below retains all EXIF data and identifies PL7 as the editor. And so yes you can do that in ...
  • That's simple: one photo is in focus and the other is not. The noise in the out-of-focus image is blurred from the loss of focus. P.S. This guy has produced some fair and helpful Fuji related ...
  • That's element separation. The lens has multiple glass elements that are literally glued together -- the glue is separating and yes it's bad as it usually get's worse over time. If you plan to ...
  • I use both in a 90/10 relationship -- 90% Capture One which is my processing software of choice and 10% PL-7. PL-7 is the backup for me that's there when it would obviously do a better job than ...
