  • Good points Peter - I had already guessed at the ND filter use, and was going to buy a set of large ones for my RX10M3 and then just use them held in front of the rx100 as it would always be on a ...
  • It looks interesting (and well made), but it raises a more general question for me.  I have the magnetic filter because I thought I would often want a polariser, but knew that it wouldn't work for ...
  • wow - I find the camera turn-on and off really rapid.  And after a tip on here I have MR set to 200mm lens extension (on the basis that if I need the camera in a hurry it's likely for something ...
  • I too was after something to hold the RX10 (mark 3 in my case) ready for instant action and had considered some of those devices that use the tripod screw.  But I heeded the warnings on here. I was ...
  • I didn't have the V but I did have the original rx100 and now have the mark 6.  What's the max aperture difference - one stop?.  My guess is that you'd be better adjusting iso for say 800 to 1600 ...
  • Yes I had spotted that but couldn't find any way of making the working space taller than my actual 1080 by 319 image.  The only borders I could add seemed to be within that very letterbox size - ...
  • If I leave DXO Photolab elite on its default settings I THINK on import of the RAW image it applies lens corrections, and it looks like a certain amount of 'smart lighting'  - probably some other ...

    Thanks Nigel - I did open up local adjustments but couldn't see any sign of Graduated filter.  As you say I need to play around with local adjustments - not just for what I want to do at the moment. ...

    I cannot find how to enable those options at the bottom right of your screen Nigel that say Graduated Tint. Mike
  • Replied in Instagram
    yes - having explored two of the alternatives suggested by Preview planner and finding them geared towards putting frames with hearts and flowers around pics and one of them wanting £10 per month, ...

    Hah - thought I was going senile - couldn't make this work after realising that you weren't talking about the MAC OS Preview, and then downloading Preview Planner for Instagram on to my phone. ...
  • Replied in Respect
    Indeed - that's excellent stuff.  There was a whole flock of fieldfares - obviously driven in by Beast from the east 2.  I didn't see any redwings amongst them but they were very nervous and ...
  • Thanks Nigel - I will try that. Mike
  • wow - both of those are impressive.  And I think I prefer it without the twigs.  What cloning software did you guys use?  (and did it take long) Mike
  • My bad - it's a panoramic shaped crop from a perfectly normal raw image processed in DXO.  I have affinity - do I somehow create (say) a black layer that is the right size for Instagram then ...
  • Instagram crops panoramas, and I'm guessing that the best it will display is 16:9.  So I'm wondering if DXO 4 Elite can export a panorama but with black (or white) space added top and bottom to ...
  • Created discussion thread Don't see many of these birds near me
    Pretty sure it's a Fieldfare and there's snow down and a flock of them were pretty desperate - trading their natural shyness off against their hunger.  As soon as I raised my RX10M3 they would ...
  • In the UK the new-year-2021 said expired or something similar but then a pop up window in French appeared and offered the get-15-off and that worked.  I am nearly at the end of my 30 day trial and ...
  • For some of us NR and image stabilisation has meant we can combine one interest - photography - with several others where this was impracticable previously.  In my case that is motorcycling and ...
  • So is it just the noise reduction that takes the time?  should one do all the other things first like shadows, highlights, overall exposure, sharpening(?) repair (?) and then do the deep prime Mike
