  • I do hope the suggestions you have received are working. I have the EM1 and two of the EM5ii bodies, with one modified for IR. And a handful of lenses. And I am really liking the results from ...
  • Sony already has added Pixel Shift in the A7Riii. Pentax already has it.  I don't know if Olympus had it before Pentax.  But the process is different between Olympus and Pentax with Sony now ...
  • Replied in Peaking Level
    To best use the focus peaking, you want to have it set to the lowest level in which you can still see it.  Also, you are given several color choices so that you can pick a color that best stands ...
  • No, they were shot using Canon RAW format.
  • That's what I'm waiting for.  And perhaps it is something that now having to compete with Nikon and later Canon will cause Sony to address. Once this happens, there is no need to hang on to A-mount ...
  • When I'm doing manual focus, I tend to do so since I am interested in knowing if my focus was good enough,  I will also magnify it too. With AF, I don't tend to do so -- unless there is reason to ...
  • Here is a test shot of some leaves. Not an interesting shot, but it served the purpose of showing the noise. I find that the Canon SX50 often produces a noisy image which you can see if you zoom ...
  • As long as you limit your shots to the same distance as you currently shoot, then yes, you will do less cropping. But then again, if you now feel tempted to shoot at even longer distances, then you ...
  • DxO Photolab has no problem opening TIFF files.  BUT, the amazing Prime Noise removal only works on the RAW file.  All other tools are not so fussy. What it will take is convincing DxO that they ...
  • Found this on the DxO Photolab site.  Wonder if the P1000 will be popular enough that DxO decides to support it?  DxO does support the CR2 from the Canon SX50. https://support.dxo.com/hc/en-us/arti ...
  • The above image certainly is warped. But on other days, it may not be warped. This shot of a farm house is at 6 1/2 miles using a Sony A99 and Tamron 150-600 at 600mm and f8. I know it is not ...
  • Actually RAW can make a big difference if you are attempting to remove noise.  I like DxO Photolab Elite's Prime Noise removal tool for noise removal.
  • Actually, DRO option supports RAW. The HDR option only supports JPEG. But there is also another way to do HDR and this does support RAW.  The camera takes the images, but in this mode, processing ...
  • Appreciate your thoughts on this.  As for myself, most of my lenses are used.  And many are 40 year old manual lenses.  I have a few newer ones too, but older ones are still capable lenses.  And ...
  • Did you mean "without breaking the potential buyers banks"? Or did you mean "without breaking the potential buyers backs"? In order to maintain the huge zoom range, the size of the lens has to grow ...
  • In my case, it not exactly going back.  I have full frame, and I have APS-C, and I have m43.  I will pick which sized camera I want to use based on what I'm doing.  There are things that full ...
  • Quite an interesting comparison.  Of course the D850 with 200mm macro is going to win when you look at the extreme blow ups. But that said, the average person using this camera is not going to be ...
  • Faststone image viewer allows you to select up to 4 images and to then hit 'P' (found in Tools Menu) and those images will all be displayed on the screen.
  • Replied in Telescope
    There are several low cost trackers available, so do your research. I have had mine a few years, so perhaps newer ones are better. The lens you use can make all the difference too. I have the A6000 ...
  • Just so others are not confused.  IR converted and monochrome are two entirely different things. IR converted retains the RGB Bayer Matrix and only removes the uv-ir cut filter so that the camera ...
