Wayne Larmon's recent activity

  • I was going through my photo library the past few weeks and wanted to compare scanned 35mm film with what my four megapixel Canon S45 gave. For the most part there was no comparison: S45 images ...
  • "Pretty easily" is relative. A while back I used a 3D printer to make several versions of slide and negative carriers. Initially I made one (designed for 35mm) that was mostly 3D printed and ...
  • This is only true if you bought the professional version before March 31,2021.  After then they did away with "free updates for life" for new purchases only--existing users are grandfathered with ...
  • I'm resurrecting this because I am re-visiting film scanning (first time since since 2016). This is what has worked for me. YMMV. I have been bouncing between a Plustek 7600i with a fresh copy of ...
  • Which Pixel?  The Pixel 6/7 had larger sensors than the earlier Pixels.  I had a Moment fisheye that worked fine on my Pixel 2 and Pixel 5, but vignetted on my 6.  They made a newer version of the ...
  • The image you linked to is only 678 x 900 pixels.  Did you link to the wrong version of the image? Wayne
  • I was impressed with this 50 megapixel image from the first DPReview image gallery https://www.dpreview.com/sample-galleries/5228403326/google-pixel-8-pro-sample-gallery/4553953025 This image was ...
  • Many people don't *want* "an exact reproduction of an actual event in a fixed moment in time". I just got a Pixel 8 Pro and read a lot of Pixel 8 Pro reviews. One thing I noted that the reviewers ...
  • Maybe we'll need to wait until Elon Musk's 'Grok' can generate images. Wayne
  • I don't have any of those. I haven't taken any DNGs at all. The reason I'm using Pixels is because I was really tired of processing Canon raw files. Pixel JPEGs are close enough to what I used to ...
  • I've got a Pixel 8 Pro.  The .5x UWA and 5x tele can be used as either 12 megapixels or as 48 megapixel.  The wide camera can be used as 12+ megapixel or as 50+ megapixel.  (The non-Pro 8's UWA ...
  • This article explained how to access the Magic Editor.  I didn't know that it was a tiny icon that wasn't with all the other editing tools.  I thought that it would be in Edit/Tools, where the ...
  • Created discussion thread Where is the Pixel 8 Pro Magic Editor?
    I have an 8 Pro and have been reading a lot of reviews that talk about the Magic Editor. But I can't find the ME on my P8P. The only editor i can find in Edit/Tools is the old Magic Eraser. Is the ...
  • I did some informal tests with my 40D + kit 18-55mm lens, an M50 + EF-M 11-24, and my new Pixel 8 Pro. I shot RAW+JPEG with the Canon cameras and 12+50MP JPEGs with the P8P.  I didn't shoot any raw ...
  • The DXOMark review is out

    "The Google Pixel 8 Pro achieved a position among the best in the DXOMARK Camera ranking, thanks to a consistently high performance across all test categories....

  • I also get a 300-400% view on my 14" 4K laptop screen. I need to download any images that I want to examine at 100% . And BTW, I am happy with all the images I've gotten thus far from my Pixel 8...

  • I just did this late last week with my new Pixel 8 Pro and everything transferred (albeit from my Pixel 6 Pro, so there wasn't much guesswork). Except I needed to set up some (all?) apps that ...
  • I just got one because AT&T (in the US) is giving me over $1,000 trade in for my Pixel 6 Pro. which makes the 8 Pro be almost free. I wasn't sure how long this offer was for, so I got one. It ...
  • I haven't tested mine exhaustively, but I think that 50 megapixels is more sensitive to camera shake.  My shots were hand held.  You might need a tripod and delayed shutter release to get razor ...
  • After reading your post I went outside and took a few test pics with my new 8 Pro. Here is an UWA 12 megapixel image of my house You can click on "Original size" to see it at 100% Here is another ...
