About me:

Before retiring, I was an independent developer of Database Management System Software (IMS and DB2) for the IBM Mainframes (but I have no special knoweldge of PC or PC Software).

Unfortunately, I am not a great photographer. But I nevertheless enjoy taking landscape photos and spending time with my photos. My main camera was a Nikon D5000 that I love and I is now a D5500. I use a Nikkor 18-200mm Zoom lense. When I do not want to carry the relatively heavy combination of my DSLR and Zoom lense, I use a Canon Powershot G16. My main Photo-related Software is Photoshop Elements with the great "Viveza" and the great "Color Efex Pro" plugins/filters from NIK-Software/Google.

...And I love the great dpreview Website.

  • I have often been told, to look at modern Sony cameras with their exellent EVFs....And I have always been disapointed by the ugly color-rendering of these EVFs, which destroy my pleasure of taking...

  • The reason why I am not interested in a camera with an EVF: the ugly blue-ish rendering by the EVFs of the subjects/scenes. Why that ugly blue-ish rendering? Why are camera makers not capable to...

  • Does somebody knows, whether the "scan-results" have a reasonable quality, if the "scanned" image is not flat (as this often the case, if the scanned Image is in a thick book)?
