SandyF's recent activity

  • Rocks and bright sun are the best conditions, I found. Thus my desert photo gallery with it on Flickr. Rocks don't blow in the wind* and the x530 loves stationary subjects and bright sun.* The ...
  • I still have my x530 and some photos from it online at Flickr Sandy Fleischmann
  • I've used landscape color mode a lot recently and I think I've gone overboard to too much green cast LOL. Granted it has been a green summer here but I need to tone down my greens by using ...
  • additionally edited version edited from RAW, starting with the in-cam settings, then some additional edits of sliders
  • my Limelight hydrangeas are looking ratty, but they posed for jpeg experiments first is the embedded jpeg with settings in-cam +.4 contrast, +.2 both on saturation and sharpness. the second version ...
  • I replied (in the jpeg thread) to your query for another option. I bought and like the 18-300mm OS Contemporary for my SD Quattro. I have some examples with it online in large size at my Flickr. ...
  • Ted, Ceistinne, I took thousands of SD14 photos and most of the time it was a struggle to process the color to accuracy and/or to what I wished. Photos could vary from frame to frame. Plus ...
  • left-eye wrote: Re. what you were say about 'keeping weight down', I like the form and weight of the 30mm Art but often find it inexplicably missing focus or the sides of the frame disappointing, ...
  • Now I just have to absorb all the info and think how to put it to best use. Left-eye: in earliest Sigma days, both cameras  and SPP behaved somewhat differently than today re thumbnails and ...
  • I'll try to select some and get them up online tomorrow. The Beautyberry and hydrangea shots I put on Flickr today we're 'processed/edited' Jpegs
  • Fascinating, at least in the SD Quattro (and I assume various other cameras) the ON-CAM mode setting (standard, vivid, neutral, landscape, etc) as well as the ON-CAM optional setting for contrast, ...
  • What we wanted to check (at least I did) was IF you make settings on camera for the JPEGs for various criteria do those on-cam settings affect the embedded JPEG (in the RAW). Sorry I've been slow ...
  • something other than mountains, 18-300mm OS lens @100 hand-held 1/320 f/9 EV-.7 processed SPP6.8.2 daylight wb landscape color mode a few mountain photos (mostly Old Rag Skyline Drive) from ...
  • Ted, do you know if you set different jpeg preferences on the camera then shoot RAW +  jpeg, do the preferences show up automatically on the embedded jpeg? I'm thinking of color mode, saturation, ...
  • The X3F RAWs include the jpeg. So if you shoot RAW + Jpeg SPP automatically pulls out the jpeg. There is also a drop down option on SPP to 'extract' the jpeg. In years gone by, some Sigma users ...
  • Here's a photo direct from my computer of close-up 'weeds' This JPEG is processed SPP6.8.2 daylight wb Foveon blue colormode. It really jazzes up the weeds. The standard or forest green colormodes ...
  • I am pleased to report that the 'classic' 50mm f/2.8 EX prime apparently plays nicely with the Sigma SD Quattro. I used the combo on Skyline Drive today. Just reviewing/processing  photos now, ...
  • Agree. I take photos of the grandchildren but do not put the photos online. Note: DP3Quattro can catch a rapidly moving toddler in interior light, which no DPMerrill could do LOL. In Japan I ...
  • To each his or her own. I personally find 'people' photos rather intrusive.
  • suggest you look at this one as zoomed as possible https://www.flickr.com/photos/sandyfleischmann/52353899459/in/dateposted-public/ this is what I'm after, not mushy grass or mushy detail, even ...
