About me:

To learn the art of photography from real photographers.
This added Sept 2014 or 8 years after that first sentance. I have learned a lot. Don't know all, but I also like helping others as I can. Its a community.

The ratings I give to my gear are based on my IMO of performance, features and other subjective traits for the price.

  • I wouldn't limit new AF technology to the mirrorbox, focus screen, sensor. Science can come up with totally amazing solutions. One day some young designers and engineers can employ some technology ...
  • Sony decides when Pentax, Nikon and others (not all) can make new, truly new cameras. Until Sony develops another APS sensor what would Pentax build? When the floods hit Sony's factories that made ...
  • I'm not a give up type person. That sounds so bad. I feel I owe you guys the best I can do for a picture of what I am seeing. Do I think its 10 bit? No, I have no idea what to make of it. It has ...
  • OK, I give up. There is no way I will be able to tell for sure. Or at least its not worth it anymore. For one thing my monitor is 8bit+FRC for 10 bit output; not a true 10 bit monitor. That does ...
  • I saw this as well when researching my card problem is their professional cards are really just the gpus from the gaming site with different firmware may be different weeks and definitely ...
  • The RX series of cards at least use openGL. As stated on the website and system info from Photoshop. OpenGL Drawing Mode: Advanced OpenGL Allow Normal Mode: True. OpenGL Allow Advanced Mode: True ...
  • Thanks, did not know about GIMP after all these years!
  • You know I really don't care as much as it may seem if my card works with Photoshop. I wouldn't use it. I don't even use Adobe RGB. If you guys are correct I am wrong OK. I like duplicating and ...
  • Please tell me how to test. I am reading on the internet that mostly AMD cards were and are (but not all) able to run 10 bit in photoshop. I found one test of a grey scale. If you are running 10 ...
  • The card works in Photoshop CS6. That it won't do 10 bit is what many believe and for good reason. Its coming out of the horses mouth. But I read and researched this issue (about 10 bit) some time ...
  • I am surprised your Radeon HD7870 did not offer the option for 10 bit. But it was there some place IMO. My older Radeon HD5770 for sure gave a choice of 6, 8 or 10 bit output, plus pixel format. ...
  • Just curious. Why don't you like your Nikon. You have a very nice camera IMO. Oh yes, I am a Pentax fanboy. You don't have to explain yourself either if you don't want, enjoy photography!
  • A seal collecting dust is not greasy. There has never been grease applied for weather sealing on any Pentax dSLR camera. I own the K200D brother the K20D. The build concept is the same with both. I ...
  • You know I never posted in the "Open Talk" forum before, that I can remember. I would normally post this back in my home forum. But I did not want to start a war. I also never read the "Open ...
  • I honestly did not think this. My OP IMO for me was very mild. Then I did not refute anyone calling me an idiot. I posted past posts showing how much I liked the concept. This still caused ...
  • A not surprising find by one of the most respected camera/lens scientist, he absolutely knows camera and lens inside out. Probably more than anyone here, Roger Cicala of LensRental. Even DPR ...
  • I wrote a lot about mirrorless before they came out. All of which basically came true. And all was positive. Me complaining about the fighting and price is my right. No one has to read this. If ...
  • I wrote 8 years ago. A lot thought I was nuts about a sensor being able to track multiple subjects. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/30739641 As a former P/S prosumer shooter and fan of the ...
  • Created discussion thread The Great Mirrorless Push
    I have been shooting digital for ten plus years. I really enjoy my dSLR. I Never shot film (I am over 50). I was very excited to hear about mirrorless cameras coming out. I fully understood the ...
  • There is no grease on the seals. The sealing is industry standard foam, silicone and rubber. The tech does not have to align many seals as most are part of the body and structure. Sealing is not a ...
