  • I can't see any evidence of distortion correction between the two photos, which doesn't mean it's not there but you don't have long straight lines along the edges so what might be there is hard to ...
  • Could well be my favorite and most used lens nowadays. Very useful FL range as I am shooting more and more details of building/construction/demolition sites and equipment etc. I also often prefer ...
  • Aldo Rossi's artistic counterpart, Giorgio de Chirico, also seems to have experimented with different perspectives. His most famous works with the most surreal (and scary) feeling employ extreme ...
  • I think that's the point of the comparison: to compare different perspectives. What's the point in comparing four geometrically identical images with different resolution?
  • I once tried my Pentax 135/2.5 in a similar situation. Not that great at least @2.5 but came out half decent in b&w.
  • If you can't control the light you don't have much of a choice WRT ISO so why not just put your camera on auto ISO. Can't see what it would help to worry about what the ISO will/should be. Max ...
  • When shooting I watch the zebras to check I'm not blowing anything that shouldn't blow. Some cameras have blinkies instead. The advantage over a histogram is that they indicate where your ...
  • Replied in UV?
    The article mentioned using UV filter to soften the look. How does that work? I thought UV filters were for removing atmospheric haze which I'd expect to make landscape photos look sharper not ...
  • Field curvature is not correctable as it means that the in focus surface is not a plane. You are probably thinking of geometrical distortion which is correctable in post. Lots of software have ...
  • but lots of very painful realizations that some of my drawing and painting exercises are crap. OTOH some of them are not too bad. In photography I've noticed images from 2005 are very similar to ...
  • and I bet the sensors will still be undersized and cameras will still come with only one type of screen.
  • Replied in Mornings mainly
    With the SO I have found that getting up earlier than her I can get in one or two hours of photo adventure before breakfast. Quite satisfying. Last time, Kaunas in november, the light was ...
  • Replied in Patona / nt
  • Replied in +1 nt
  • Replied in Similar problem
    I have Photoshop CS4. My photos look soft at fit screen size but when I zoom in or out to any of the predetermined ratios like 12.5, 16.7, 25, 33.3, 50, 66.7, 100% they look fine. Strange thing ...
  • PODS wrote: Hi. I'd like to know exactly how this lens distortion removal works. In the reviews the critics mention different ranges of distortion for different lenses, rurikw I know next to ...
  • Replied in No
    I think m43 should have a 15x18 or bigger sensor, a universal screen articulation solution, wearable displays, customizable menus, more elegant design and shift lenses. Most of those apply to most ...
  • Maybe if you put it that way but learning to make good architecture photos without a shift lens is hardly sloppy. Yes they are somewhat accessible but a shift lens and a decent FF camera is still ...
  • Replied in 95-99/5-1 nt
  • ~100€ expensive?! Same problem here. As a result I use DxO purely as a noise reducer (+initial sharpener). Works batches while I do something else. Worth the praise. For everything else ...
