  • Replied in Paulinerkirche
    Yes, that was a sad event, indeed - the site of performances by Bach, Mendelssohn, and others, consecrated as a Protestant church by Martin Luther himself, and in which he delivered a sermon. It ...
  • No, no warnings are displayed. If I select "Battery Info" under menu Set-up 4, it says "DR-E6". I suspect something in your non-Canon DC adapter is not quite right.
  • I have a genuine Canon DR-E6 and it looks identical to your OEM one, except for the 'Canon' word and logo. So if there are any differences they must be inside. And I have no plans to disassemble ...
  • Everything Colin says, plus: In my experience, the 18-135 lenses have a strong tendency to flare, made worse by dust on the frontmost element. Carefully removing and cleaning the front element can ...
  • Just so you know, PTGui has HDR capabilities, too. Click the Advanced button at the far right under the Project Assistant tab, then check out the Exposure/HDR tab. Also, the excellent help file ...
  • Yes; the camera's focal plane should be parallel to the building, that is, as nearly perfectly vertical as you can get it. If you have to tilt you should keep it to a minimum, then possibly it can ...
  • Keeping track of what photos have been posted here is not easy. One must start keeping a log or record in a text file. IMHO Trafford should post a new image and we'll just start over.
  • I'd check to make sure that the settings in Preferences/Performance are set correctly. On my system, for instance, it runs better without OpenCL enabled. And set max number of simultaneous ...
  • That's a very old flash - probably 20 years old, now. I'm surprised they made you pay for it. Whatever you paid it was too much. That said, if I use bounce flash, I nearly always use M mode on the ...
  • I see this thread has been getting tons of attention -- well maybe not so much. I recently was faced with this decision and I went for the II version, for several reasons. One, the older version is ...
  • Yes: Light, Color, and Detail. The full set of highlight/midtone/shadow/black sliders is available in Light. No NR in any of these, yet. I suppose this is coming but we won't hold our breath. FYI, ...
  • Max, I am amazed at your ability to track these down. I at first thought it was Greece, but realized after a bit that the Cyrillic alphabet shared some letters with Greek, and thought maybe Russia ...
  • Looks like a lot of shiny metal there...
  • Apparently, my old 3ware RAID controller driver is rejected by the update and so it won't install. It seems this is better than the earlier version, which became so corrupted that I had to reset, ...
  • Yes, this is the Simon Stevin statue in Bruges, Belgium. He was a Flemish mathematician and physicist who did much important early work in hydraulics, geometric analysis, and gravity. Free turn. Ju ...
  • Crickets? Any follow up pics would be a complete giveaway. This guy knew what pressure really meant. Bedtime for me now, see you in the morning.
  • Yes, and for zoom lenses, it will change over the zoom range. I took a day and checked all my lenses using two light stands set about 10' apart, and tethered to a laptop in live view. Then I ...
  • Hmm, 8 hours gone now - do we want a hint? Somehow I'm feeling inclined to one.
  • I'm going to sneak in with a quick one. Where is this, and who is the subject?
  • I'm sorry, I can't agree with calling flash a crutch. This is like saying that you can't turn on an artificial light in a dark room, or ask your subject to sit over by the window. Photography is...
