  • Replied in Focus Magic
    I have copy of FocusMagic which I have had for years. But it is not even in the same league as photo AI or Sharpen AI. Consider how it woks. You work in a small window where you manually try to ...
  • I had never previously added the two suggested files, and Photoshop would not open some HEIC files I tried to open.  Then I added those two files and now Photoshop (25.4) has no problem opening ...
  • And only the Elite version contains DeepPrime and its variations.
  • :-D:-D:-D Here is a shot of Shanghai as seen from the top floor restaurant of the hotel I was staying at on my last business trip before retiring in July of 2016. I had a rubber lens hood to press ...
  • Replied in meaningful?
    I used Gigapixel AI and downsized 0.5x.  Used Gigapixel AI instead of PhotoAI as I didn't want to have any additional noise reduction take place. I compared the original with no noise reduction to ...
  • Replied in meaningful?
    I just went through the exercise and started with a very noisy image. Downsampling results were very modest. I could tell that it was a little bit better, but not that much better. Then compared to ...
  • Well, I hadn't followed the latest in cell phone sensors, so I did some Googling and see that it truly is grouping the 4 pixels together before the conversion to digital information. So it is ...
  • For those not knowing what "binning" is -- it is a means for ganging a group of pixels together so that it works as one bigger pixel. Often, it might be a 2 x 2 group of pixels. And the results ...
  • Replied in Monochrome
    I have had a camera modified by stripping off the CFA and giving it full spectrum capability and it has been really fun to use. BUT I also have had a full spectrum IR conversion done on another ...
  • A major camera manufacturer that does not provide a way to deactivate stands the chance of angering the customer base and losing sales. Some manufacturer would have to be the first to do this, and ...
  • This is a real good option.  The Yashica flange distance is 45.5mm and it is easy to find an adapter to Canon EF mount (44mm). And a Metabones Canon EF to MFT Speedbooster is easy to find.  I ...
  • What does it matter if you always have the option to turn it OFF? There is no cost savings to you to have the camera manufacturer leave out options you don't want.  The cost savings happens when ...
  • Those fast flying, highly acrobatic, swallows are quite the bird to watch.  I have watched in amazement as they consume small, flying insects.  But my camera certainly wasn't fast enough to ...
  • Very impressive!  I have tried (unsucessfully) to capture swallows.  I know how difficult they are to capture.  My cameras could not focus fast enough. The "experts" still just want to only point ...
  • Not only don't pursue.  But what would you pursue it with?  To go on the end of the lens, it has to cover the complete objective of the lens and with an objective that can go to 300mm FL, that's ...
  • It was in 1998 and was the Olympus D400Z.  One Mpixels.  Once the shutter button was pushed, it was about 4 sec until it actually took a picture! Took it to Kauai and tried to time it to take a ...
  • Note: The Z7 is a relatively new camera and has a much faster sensor readout than cameras in the previous generation. Above, I converted times such as 1/20 sec to 50ms, since it can be easier to ...
  • Glad to hear you were using mechanical shutter for birding.  I have experimented with electronic shutter for birding and can immediately tell that the images fall short of expectations.  Now I am ...
  • Hi Jack, Although Gigapixel AI (or Photo AI) can produce nice looking enlargements, I am afraid that this image is not of sufficient IQ to make this work.  I did download your before image and ...
