  • Created discussion thread K-70 does Tel Aviv
    Just here for a short break enjoying this city that is alive 24/7. Sun, sea and delicious food all around. I travel light this time taking only the 40mm/f2.8 XS pancake and an old manual Revuenon ...
  • Added 13 photos to their gallery
  • Gimp is an image editor just like Photoshop and just like Photoshop's "Adobe Camera Raw", Gimp requires a plugin to deal with raw. There is a wide variety of such raw plugins on offer, from UFRaw, ...
  • Replied in Oh, wow!
    I checked, it does nothing of the sort. Wishful thinking and a lot of stretched imagination does. International commodity coding by the WCO and WTO will not allow you to import or export it ...
  • Replied in Oh, wow!
    Correct. They are mini-modules which can capture images. Here's the one in the iPhoneX. Hardly qualifies as a "camera" wouldn't you think? No shutter, no aperture, no proper corrective elements ...
  • Oh, I often use the GPS module when on vacation so as to see where I took the images. It's so easy to forget the details when traveling around. GPS can be handy but it doesn't really do anything ...
  • Replied in Oh, wow!
    No, why? Some things are pretty dependent on the fact we have two hands but besides that, quite a number of manufacturers have already shown cameras can have lots of different and sometimes quirky ...
  • Created discussion thread How low can you go?
    This is one of the reasons I traded in my wonderful K-5 IIs for a decidedly less rugged K-70 two years ago. My aging and creaking knees. This was shot just a few centimeters above the level of the ...
  • Replied in Oh, wow!
    Wrong, you can get manipulated fake unsharp backgrounds but that still does not equal "beautiful bokeh". Yes, soooo.....? Why would you want to convert unsharp backgrounds to sharp ones? Just get ...
  • I have no experience with Lightroom or any other Adobe or Microsoft software but the past 20 years have taught me that people who look for "alternatives" to Windows or Apple software generally ...
  • Replied in Gain all the way
    I made that very switch 2 years ago and never looked back. I dearly loved my K-5 IIs (with grip) but being able to shoot architecture straight up, close-ups and low-level without muddy trousers ...
  • A vintage Revuenon 55mm/f1.2 on a Kenko 2X Pz-AF converter can give some pretty smooth background blur - I was positively surprised.
  • Seeing the previous replies, Photoshop does the trick. I tried with Gimp's "Cage transform" which works equally well. Draw box around the object, grab a handle and pull.
  • There are indeed
  • If what you understood translates to " a random person going in to modify the code ", this discussion becomes a bit pointless. Try to educate yourself as to how teams actually contribute to ...
  • Yes, that should hardly count as news. There are complete communities out there entirely to doing exactly thàt. No, you're not and it shows. Lenscodes could be hardwired, xml files or external ...
  • Customization can just be a tweak or two, not necessarily beyond a photographer's ability to read a website and follow some easy instructions. As a very simple example I've modified some lenscodes ...
