  • I like LR because I don't need three different softwares to do what I need to do which is archive organize and basic retouch (no layers even tho would be welcome) and non destructive image ...
  • The usual whistles and bells to sell the same old product which is the everyone's trend, look at recente iOs release as well as the last iterations of MacOS, nothing new under the hood and it's ...
  • I mean, it is old and sluggish but a lot of us organized the archive through it and don't bother too much about it lacking any substantial innovation and being slow as a pachyderm when managing big ...
  • When I was in your same boat with a DX body I found a good deal on a 10-24 which delivered good pictures when stopped down (on a wide angle I don't really need f1.8ish unless some astrophotography ...
  • There is no doubt that MF holds an advantage but for those of us who not being pros can't or won't afford to buy digital MF the increasing quality of sensors in the FF segment and the more and ...
  • That's actually what I wanted to head to, a 6x7 body and a couple lenses for some seascape, maybe some day a good conditions RZ67Pro will pop out and I will add another piece of gear ;-)
  • Created discussion thread Does MF still make sense?
    After Nikon introducing the D850 with a 40+MP sensor and Canon with the (less lucky) 5Dx series does it still make sense to look at MF cameras when comparing both body and lens prices? I understand ...
  • The whole memory market is in the same position after the flood in Japan a while ago, prices either stagnant or increasing, am personally looking forward to buy both a 500GB SSD and a twin 3TB HD ...
  • Nope, I don't own it, I put my 28-300 up for sale and if I can sell it I'd have bought the 24-105 as a general purpose lens where the extra 4mm in the wide end would have come handy and the ...
  • As an everyday lens to replace my 28-300 whose long end doesn't satisfy me and where I need a little bit more on the wide end and a faster f-stop so that I can also take some portraits from ...
  • Mike, you made the point very clear, I'd say that the prime route is what I should aim at and as such the 20/1.8 is still first on the bucket list, I might even risk and buy used or new off of the ...
  • I know, the weight doesn't really matter to me, I can still do it but what I am afraid of is that 24 might not be wide enough, also 35 is not a focal length I like that much, I think I gotta stick ...
  • Created discussion thread Any Sigma 24-35Art on Nikon D800?
    I have no wide angles for my Nikon D800 besides a Nikkor 28/2.8Ai and the 28-300VR (the latter easily outperforms the former or at least it so looks to me), I am thorn about getting the Nikon ...
  • Hello everybody, first and foremost thank you all for your hints and suggestions, I came to the conclusion that to have two separate libraries doesn't make sense. I live and work on a beautiful ...
  • Agree 100%, DX will be the first move in the ML world to see how does it compete against the market share leaders like Fuji, Sony is now too big to compete against with a first instance attempt ...
  • My archive is structured by year (e.g. 2017) then month (e.g. 2017 04) and by camera (sigh, when I used to use different ones e.g. 2017 08 - D800 - name-of-event), I would like to create one ...
  • Long story short, I have close to 80K pics in my catalogue, many from my growing son, many from friends but too many from people I meet only once during my job, I'd like to remove the latter from ...
  • Created for sale thread Contax/Yashica lens hoods for sale
    Bought lens hoods and adapters for my Contax/Yashica lenses (50/1.7 - 85/1.4 - 35/1.4) but never used them since lenses were supposed to be used on my Fuji camera through an adapter but never made ...
  • Created discussion thread AF-C how to
    Hello, using my camera 99% of the time on Aperture priority and Single Point AF, when at the sea I am experimenting taking pics of friends diving off cliffs, switch AF on C and Shutter priority, ...
  • I am looking at the used market for a head first, legs will come later, I see some RRS going once in a while on FM buy and sell but dunno if to buy used is a good deal, I mean, in the 300$ range I ...
