  • This B700 photo is very good and your PP is not so ham-fisted as you said. Today I developed 2 more kestrel photos and would like to share them, just to demonstrate what PP can get out of the RAW ...
  • Replied in Yellow Dove
    I have a P950 and shoot nearly almost RAW because its possible to get better details with a good RAW developer like Dxo Photolab 4 (or 5). And as sharpening tool I use Topaz Sharpen AI. Both ...

    Great shots. Did you make some PP or are these SOOC photos? Akkerman54
  • Thank you Dodge_Rock. My learning is to carefully check my 'not so good' photos before removing them...
  • Indeed. DxO is a bit expensive but does a better job than e.g. Affinity Photo. I new developed some RAW files with DxO PL 5 but could not see an improvement in I.Q. . -2 stops! Never tried it. Brave! ...
  • Created discussion thread P950: What PP can do
    I am still impressed about the I.Q. one can get out of a RAW shot using DxO PL4/5 and Topaz Sharpen AI as PP. Here is an example. I was about to delete this photo after looking at the sooc jpg on ...
  • Great shots, especially the 1st and the 4th. Greetings Akkerman54
  • Thank you, Torgny. I posted another thread with dragonflies, look here https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4607468 Regards Akkerman54
  • Replied in Mating Wheel
    Congrats, a mating wheel in flight, shot with a smartphone @ 10x zoom. That happens not so often! Shooting mating wheels in flight with 'regular' cams is a big challenge. I only once had the luck ...
  • Created photo thread Mating Wheel
    Here is a P950 shot of a mating wheel. The dragonfly is a Vagrant Darter if my translation is correct. Mating Wheel Just for comparison, here is a similar shot with my FZ200 from 2012: rotated to ...
  • Created photo thread Dragonflies with P950
    I love taking pics of dragonflies. Here are some results with my new P950 from this summer. Demoiselle 1 Demoiselle 2 Blue Emporer 1 Blue Emporer 2 Sometimes I miss the 'tele macro'-mode of the ...
  • Did you make some PP or is this straight OOC? A few weeks ago I tried ISO 6400 with my P950 but there was so much noise .... Regards, Akkerman54
  • Replied in My new P950
    Extra zoom is better but for the price of reduced DOF. If this is a straight OOC shot then no PP is necessary i think. Regards

    Thank you so much Kathiemt.
  • Replied in My new P950
    Thank you for your tips and nice comments. My FZ-story seems to be similar to yours and goes like this: FZ10 - FZ5 - FZ18 - FZ200 - FZ1000. And like you I had a FZ80 for a short while but sold it ...
  • Replied in My new P950
    Thanks for your nice comments. Indeed its not so easy to get so close to these birds. But as you see from the EXIF this shot was @2000mm and its cropped Out of a series of 5 or 6 this one was the ...

    Thank you so much, Panet
  • Replied in My new P950
    Thank you for your nice comment and your suggestion. I will try it.
  • Replied in My new P950
    Thanks for your nice comment. As I mentioned I am satisfied with my P950. But keep in mind my workflow, which is very similar to Sherms and ANYVs I think: 1. Shooting RAW 2. Develop & DeNoise with ...
  • Created discussion thread My new P950
    I'm new to this forum, coming from Panasonic Compact Camera. I do not post often. This summer I bought a (used) P950 and I think it is in a good condition. Although the point-AF often does not ...
