BertIverson's recent activity

  • Well I gave up on LightRoom. I can not bother spending hours on Adobe chat to fix an Adobe "book keeping" problem.  For unknown reasons (their words), their system thinks I have more than 1 copy ...
  • Please ignore my previous post. I may have figured it out.
  • In Photoshop and LightRoom, one can save Camera Raw defaults by camera model and ISO. Does anyone know if this can be done in PS Elements? (2018) When I pose this question in Google, I get lots of ...
  • Excellent set of sharp photos. Well done. Makes me glad I own the RX10IV and wonder why others lust after large sensor cameras. In the 60s, I abandoned 120 film for 35 film and never complained ...
  • f4 24-600 mm equivalent on my Sony RX10M4. No thought required as to which lens to take. Years ago I had APS camera with lenses: 16, 50, 300 and 18-250 zoom. Way too much stuff to worry about. I ...
  • Agreed, Lithium Ion batteries have a bad fire record. I leave my charger on my concrete patio just in case. Concrete slab and limestone walls so not much chance of catching fire.
  • I recently got the USN1 mostly because of the third terminal and temperature monitoring. I guess it treats the batteries more gently and less likely to catch fire ????? But who really knows :-) Bert
  • I believe the 1 inch sensor will dominate in cameras for some time just like the 35 mm film replaced 120 film back in the 1950's.  Phones will use smaller sensors. Of course camera size will ...
  • Well my cell phone camera has replaced my RX100 which I had for a pocket camera on my walks and everyday camera but it certainly is never used when I have my RX10IV handy. Its lack of optical ...
  • +++ Yes. That is what I do. Shoot raw and +1 EV. Else bracket +1, +2, +3 EV. Takes next to zero extra time. Either way, ETTR becomes easy (meeting the KISS principal) -- assumes raw shooting. Bert
  • Good for you. My history with ML is about the same as yours.  My first ML was the Minolta DiMAGE A1 in 2003 (because it had IBIS). And yes it had noticeable viewfinder lag when panning the camera ...
  • I am guessing all those over 70 ! Except me I am 83 and have been ML past 7 years. I guess I just use the viewfinder for pointing the camera and framing the shot (including fireside night shots ...
  • Thanks Mait, I do have an Adobe account but may only have my PSE2018 registered. I will give your suggestion a try. BTW, PSE2018 seems to have all the LR raw development tools that I normally use ...
  • Well LR6 worked for a few weeks and now I am back in the same boat. My licensed copy of Ver 6 LR is messed up again. The same issue that took me 2 hours on adobe chat to have my computer set back ...
  • Wow! Hard for me to imagine. If I could say that, I would probably own one of the newer phones our there. As it is, I have a cheap 13MP phone camera as my "always with me" camera. Its photos are ...
  • I scanned them all and tossed the originals. In fact, I acquired lots of old family pictures from relatives and scanned them too. I could see no reason to keep the originals (small BW prints, 4x6, ...
  • You could check out "ThumbsPlus". I have been using it for 2x years. http://www.cerious.com/ OR this site which offers alternatives to ThumbsPlus https://alternativeto.net/software/thumbsplus/ I ...
  • Replied in Both ...
    When I was young, I was a land surveyor looking through a 30-40X telescope at various targets. Getting the target into the FOV was an issue so I learned to keep both eyes open and superimposed the ...
  • Thanks for you thoughts. I indeed did enter the 24 digit key and the trial version popup went away. However, the next time I tried to start LR, I got a popup stating that I had too many copies of ...
