  • I'd be surprised. They've never really provided firmware upgrades that added features to the 10 series and since the 10ii has been replaced for quite some time I just don't see any upgrades to the ...
  • Replied in Show me ...
    While no one knows what they'll actually do in the future, past behavior is often the best predictor of future behavior. I agree. I mostly prefer smaller kits and while I'm fine with Olympus ...
  • Replied in New iMac
    I of course have no real idea if the next iMac will be substantially redesigned externally. They basically had an incentive to retain the same form factor of the old mini. They are often used in ...
  • Replied in New iMac
    27" is kind of a sweet spot for 5k and I wouldn't expect a substantially larger monitor. Given how long it's been since the current 2017 iMacs were released I'm kind of expecting a redesign. I ...
  • I've never used the GX85 but have used several Olympus 16mp bodies and have the GX9. IMO, the IQ from the GX9 is better but not dramatically better. It also gives a bit more headroom for cropping. ...
  • Yep. I've usually had a smaller, lower end body and a higher end body. When Olympus removed features from the 10-iii it definitely sent the wrong message to me. I'm sure it's a fine camera for ...
  • I'm using a 2012 Mac Mini and will likely change what I'm doing when I upgrade. Right now I have my LR Catalog and recent image files on a Samsung T5 connected by USB 3. I use Carbon Copy Cloner ...
  • That's the thing. Looking at these from the perspective of someone considering adding a FF system (I am) the Canon just doesn't really compete. No doubt it's capable of producing lovely images,...

  • Replied in Pen F vs GX9
    I've not used a PenF. I have owned several Olympus bodies and have lusted after the PenF. But I bought the GX9. Olympus/Panasonic bodies each offer a few really desirable features the other ...
  • I've never used the PenF so... Have owned other Olympus bodies. To me, the weakest link in the GX9 is the EVF. If you're happy with it I'd stay with the GX9. You might want to read the Imaging ...
  • I've never worked with files that big. I know they can slow things down. But wow.
  • I haven't tried Capture One and lots of folks seem to like it. On1 Raw has promise and I've not tried the newest version enough to  make any comments but it's always had it's significant glitches. ...
  • I'm no expert here but I'm wondering just how slow it's really running and how large are the files you're working on? I'm still using a 2012 Mac mini. It's one of the good ones with a 2.6ghz quad ...
  • For the same reasons I'd really like to see a G95. In terms of size the G9 is just bigger and heavier than I want. Just seems neither Panasonic nor Olympus (Olympus especially) have any interest ...
  • I just ran a raw file from LR to PL2 and exported as DNG and TIFF. For the DNG the default Adobe color profile is applied, you can choose daylight, sunshine, cloudy, etc. in WB, detail sliders are ...
  • I think that's correct but somewhere (somewhere is pretty vague and I won't vouch for the veracity of this) I read that if it's sent back to LR as a dng file LR will read the information and treat ...
  • PURELY SPECULATING (randomly guessing is more accurate). From DxO are you exporting as a .dng file? If so, I wonder if LR is reading some information about sharpening in the file? So you might try ...
  • Not for everything. But he says he has published a lot of photos using variants of the RX100 and RX10 series of 1" sensor bodies.
  • Yep, that confused me and I created a heck of a mess. The catalog is only the database containing information about where images are stored, ratings, information about LR edits, etc. The actual ...
