  • Replied in Lightroom 2020
    Thank you everybody for the reply. I am convinced. I will upgrade.  Just the texture slider to soften the skin to make the wife happy will be worth the $10 per month. :-)

    Very helpful. Thank you.
  • Created question thread Lightroom 2020
    I am still using LIghtroom 6 and I am converting my raw files to DNG before postprocessing. I do not mind this extras step. However, I am wondering what new capabilities in the lastest Lightroom I ...
  • Replied in DNG vs NEF
    Thanks for the detailed explanation. Has there been much update since LR6? I heard the complaint that Adobe's update releases to LR have slowed down since they switched to the subscription model.
  • Replied in DNG vs NEF
    Thank you for the advice. I just experienced my first issue with DNG. One of my files was corrupted during edit and I had to generate it again from the original RAW file. Such an issue never ...
  • Replied in DNG vs NEF
    I have no problem with learning new software. As a matter of fact, I am trying out Capture One for its reported advantages. I simply do not like the subscription model of LR. $10 a month is a ...
  • Created discussion thread DNG vs NEF
    Lightroom 6 cannot recognize the NEF file from my Z6 so I am converting them to DNG. I do not mind such an additional step and the extra storage. The question is what am I missing by using DNG ...
  • Thanks
  • Replied in try this :)
    I did not know touching the rear screen would wake up the camera even after 1 minute of inactivity. Perhaps that's what accidentally happened when I picked up the camera and sometimes it would ...
  • Interesting suggestion. I have always wondered if that's an option. Apple makes great products but they are not for me. I have a Note 8 with 256g external storage. What app do I need? The file ...
  • In general, you are right. My issue is that the carry-on weight limit is 15 lbs which is often enforced in Asia and Europe. Even 2-3 lbs of a lightweight laptop is a lot. It is for this reason ...
  • Interesting article. Thanks.
  • Created discussion thread Lossless Compressed vs Compressed
    Just got me Z6. Looks like a great camera. To save card space, I am considering 14-bit compressed raw instead of 14-bit lossless compressed raw. According to the manual, there is little difference ...
  • I am also not clear about the functioning of the ECO mode. Exactly when does the camera turn off? In my case, I tried to leave the camera in Sleep mode for several minutes before I picked it up ...
  • If the EVF sensor and "see" objects approaching from the side then you are right.
  • Thank you for the info. My EVF sensor must be super sensitive. Unlike carrying the camera around my neck, the sensor was not close to anything when the camera turned on by itself. Turning the ...
  • You might be right but there was nothing in front of or close to the EVF. Very strange.
  • Created question thread EOS R Waking up from Sleep
    I have my R set in ECO mode and a 24-70 f4 IS attached. The camera will go into sleep after about 30 seconds of inactivity. However, sometimes, not always, the camera will wake up by itself when I ...
  • I asked B&H yesterday. It is June 1.
  • Agreed. That is why I said "for ....... anything not moving too fast", the R is better ........"
