  • I want to add that the AF improvement by using the speedbooster may be there, but I find it minor, if any. AF with the adapted lens is never as good as with a native one, but I find S-AF, using ...
  • I have the Sigma 150-600mm S and use it with Oly EM1II, via Metabones 1x and 0.71x adapters. IQ is o.k., but better with the 0.71x adapter compared to the 1x. I recommend the 0.71x adapter as you ...
  • Hi Jacques, I believe it is not the target (unfortunately the Palette Master software is insufficiently described and operation is more than intuitive). It is rather the range that is calibrated... ...
  • I thank you all for your valuable input... In the meantime I found a way to greatly improve the results of my color calibration (I found hints for this in the internet): When calibrating the BenQ ...
  • The OM-1 may be an option: some, but not tremendous, improvement in IQ (16 to 20 Mpixel) and substantial improvement in AF (important mostly for macro). In case you are not satisfied with the ...
  • I find rotation of the viewfinder easy: you just take it with one hand and rotate it (at least the old MIL version that I have) - no unscrewing, unplugging etc. required. Of course on additional ...
  • My personal experience is, that after becoming accustoumed to the 45° viewfinder, also WA is very comfortable and when there is bright sunlight, it is a clear advantage. The viewfinder needs to be ...
  • Oceanic white tip sharks are inhabitants of the open sea, but they come very close when inspecting divers. They also have a fine sensorium for electrical pulses - this one was approaching me, but before being in reach, the animal turned away, scared by the series of electrical discharges from my flashes.

  • Hi Craig, There are two advantages of the 45° viewfinder: #1.: When the ambient light is bright, you still can see very well through it, compared to a backscreen (but this advantage you have ...
  • Hi Drusus, UW photography is fun, but does not come cheap. Maybe a second hand setup (as far as I know Canon GX7II and Sony RX100 are good compacts)? I have several books on UW-photography, but the ...
  • Hi Elmar, What do you mean with "image quality of TG6 is not good enough"? In case you mean the colors, another camera will not help and you need a good flash for stills and a LED light for video. ...
  • Hi Box, Thank you for your input... => yes, I use Palette master element for BenQ, calibration for sRGB and aRGB is done separtately. For the laptop monitors I use i1 Profiler in sRGB... => I will ...
  • The BenQ monitor has its own software, called "Pallette master element" (also here each color space is calibrated separately). For the laptop monitors, I use the software that comes with the ...
  • Created question thread monitor calibration problem?
    I use a BenQ SW270c for editing my photos with Adobe LR und PS. As computers I use Laptops (a new MacBook Pro M1 and an older Lenovo Thinkpad i7). All monitors get calibrated using the Xrite i1 ...

  • Ah - now I got it what your concern is... I think in my case it is reasonable save to make the backup on the second NAS in compressed mode (that is without loss, as stated above by Richard), since ...
  • The compression and decompression will be performed by the Synology DSM operating system. It is an option of the "Hyperbackup" utility that can be used to save space (and also transfer time)... Wol ...
  • I have a Synology DS920+ NAS for storage of all my data, including photos (raw, TIF, JPEG) and videos. I plan to use my old DS215j NAS for safety backup ("Hyperbackup" package of DSM). There are ...
  • Hi Craig, First, the human eye does not have different angles of view, but only a single type of facial field exist, perceived similar to standard focal length on a camera. Therefore it is just ...
  • Hi Antsi, I use my MacBook M1 Pro with BenQ SW270c (2560x1440) and it works without issues. The monitor is connected to the MacBook via USB-C and this connection is also used to charge the battery ...
