  • (1) What software are you using to edit your raw files? (2) How many MPs is your camera? (3) What is the size in MB of a ...
  • Very easy. Just set your FZ2500 to P mode, and setup extra optical zoom of 28.1x at 10MP and then store it into custom-1. Then set extra optical zoom of 40x at 5MP and store it into custom-2. This ...
  • The extra optical zoom of Panasonic cameras is true optical zoom and not digital zoom.  I see that you already know that the 10MP setting gives 28.1x zoom and that the 5MP setting gives 40x zoom. T ...
  • Zoom in for a much tighter view of the bird. Your Panasonic FZ2500 should have extended optical zoom. I didn't research the exact zoom but probably something like 22.5x at 10MP or 32x at the 5MP ...
  • Replied in 4k Blu Ray
    Yes, that is very true, though sad for "enthusiasts".  Any desktop tower case that I will own has to have 5.25 inch bays.  I'll always have an optical drive in one of the bays for backward ...
  • Does MS Word 2016 still have the ribbon user interface at the top?  I tried an earlier version of MS Word with the ribbon UI on a friend's PC and didn't like it.  Much preferred the Word 2000 UI.
  • And don't forget the FZ1000's "Extended Optical Zoom": Extended Optical Zoom (from the FZ1000's advanced manual): "This function works when any of the picture sizes (P131) indicated with is selected. ...
  • I gave up on my copy of Micosoft Office 2000 since it had problems working in Windows 10. Switched to Libre Office which is free and can open old and new documents from MS Office. Libre Office is ...
  • There's only two "basic" ways to try to adjust the colors that the camera sets for jpg images that show in the viewfinder or on the back LCD screen. They are: (1) Using one of the preset white balance ...
  • The original poster (OP) is a total beginner since the thread title is "First and only proper camera" .  That being the case, I would highly recommended that he/she get a camera with: (1) image ...
  • Check out youtube videos on and books by Roberto Valenzuela. He's an awesome photographer with exceptional posing techniques. Sky
  • If you're referring to the Fujifilm X100V, my suggestion is think again. According to dpreview's review for the X100V, there is "No stabilization of any kind".  I would NEVER buy a camera that ...
  • As a beginner, suggest getting a camera with an electronic viewfinder (VF) instead of one with an optical VF. Regular DSLRs have optical VFs. Mirrorless and bridge cameras have electronic VFs. The ...
  • You can verify whether the latest version of the Adobe DNG converter supports raw files from the X-T30 by downloading the X-T30 raw files from the imaging resource website . If the DNG conversion ...
  • Yes, the Affinity Photo raw to jpeg conversion is messed up.  Here's what that photo looks like just using Photoshop levels adjustments:
  • Sincerely want to learn. What things do you take a thousand photos a day of? As others have said, uploading 1000 photos a day to the cloud will be too much.  I know you said you don't want to buy ...
  • Replied in Well...
    Please see my response to John Sheehy. Take care, Sky
  • It has been discussed and confirmed for years and years that pictures taken with cameras that have large APS-C size sensors have more dynamic range and less noise in low-light than pictures taken ...
  • If you have two sensors of different sizes but with the same MP ratings, the difference will be that the larger sensor will have larger pixels.  Larger pixels equate to better dynamic range and ...
  • In graphics editing programs, when you click the erase tool look for an option to change the opacity of the tool.  That will erase things "gradually". For instance, in Photoshop I can set the ...
