  • Indeed.  I have had the 25mm 1.2 for over a year and the  45mm 1.2 for a couple of weeks. These lenses are well worth the price IMnotsoHO.  I also have the 45mm 1.8 and it will provide about 95% ...
  • I think you will find that the vast majority of serious photographers will back up their photo files to another hard drive using third party software that did not come with the drive.  (The one ...
  • Replied in Edinburgh 1968
    Well I used to live there in 1968 (in Canada now).  Like seeing pictures of an old friend.  Thanks for posting.
  • Very shallow DoF does not always work, and tends to be somewhat overdone these days.  I would tend to agree that f/1.8 at 45mm is probably quite sufficient for almost all cases.  At least for my ...
  • Created discussion thread First look at the Olympus 45mm f/1.2
    Yesterday, I was at the Profusion show in Toronto and got to take a look at the 45 1.2.  The Olympus people let me borrow the lens (and the model) and shoot a few test pictures on my own camera ...
  • If you are using an actual scanner; flat bed scanner, or dedicated film scanner, it will come with or support scanner software that takes the file and inverts it (it the original was a negative, ...
  • I'm not sure what production variability applies to the Olympus 45mm f/1/8 (as opposed to the Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7 that we seem to have got sidetracked onto), but I was using mine again ...
  • None at all. It's just that as soon as you start going off camera and using modifiers, bouncing off the ceiling etc. you will find you want more power. To start with however you can just ramp up ...
  • That's exactly right!  If you want to fire off a 6-8 shot burst you will need to have the flash running well below its max output and probably pointing directly at the contest. Bouncing the flash ...
  • From what I read, it looks like LR 7 will be the fix for the performance issues that many of us have discovered in LR 6.x.  Oh well... looks like a move away from Adobe is now on the horizon for ...
  • You don't say which configuration of MBA you are using, but regardless, you should see a major benefit in going for a fully specified current 13" MBP. I use a 2014 Mac Mini as my main LR/PS ...
  • The V860II O is what I'm looking at.  Glad yours is working out fine.
  • Created discussion thread EM1.2 and Godox off camera flash
    I have been using off camera flash since the early 80's for pictures of friends, family and groups I belong to.  I don't get paid for this and so I try to keep the outlay to a reasonable minimum, ...
  • You only need one lrcat file, unless you have decided to keep different catalogs for some reason (some people do this claiming that it simplifies file management – I don't agree.)  Regardless, ...
  • I'm not sure what you are doing to create so many catalogs, but I am virtually certain that they are all old and unused by your copy of LR6.  (Look at the way the size of the catalogs increases ...
  • Created discussion thread Scanning with an OMD EM1.2
    I still use film (35mm and 120) a fair bit.  I have found that the system of using the EM5 and now EM1.2 gives me better results than dedicated film scanners, flat bed scanners, or having it done ...
  • I have a Mac Mini and a NEC monitor. It works, but can be slow in some cases. I would not recommend it today.  That Mac Pro you are considering would be a huge upgrade to what you have now (as ...
  • Not my problem.  I have >50% free space on my start up (SSD) and >50% free space on my external HDD where the files are kept.  I am coming more to the conclusion that this is primarily a LR issue, ...
  • Thanks, I checked the link you provided.  That was interesting, so it's not just me that seems to be finding LR6 to be slower than LR5.  I suppose I will join the crowd and hope these problems are ...
  • That's true enough.  But it's been quick enough up to now that I haven't needed to consider making it an 'unattended process'. I'm thinking that this is what I'll do next time.  Action photography ...
