  • I looked around to find gear and discovered a particular lens, that I found very interesting: This is a manual 35mm Sirui anamorphic f1.8 1.33x lens. See here: Sirui lenses So she is interested in ...
  • Replied in No no no
    Says someone who has almost 10000 posts, with many lengthy "essays" over nothing. Again: How do you know for sure that there are no issues as a result of updating? I explained why I won't give the ...
  • Replied in No no no
    But you don't know that for sure. How do you know you don't have a problem in the future or one that you haven't discovered yet and it is not already affecting you? Sticking your head in the sand ...
  • Replied in No no no
    How do you know when there is a need and can you be sure? Can you look inside the firmware and confirm that it contains no issues? Wouldn't you want a camera that functions well? I don't run into ...
  • Replied in No no no
    Every camera manufacturer pretends to reset the camera after an update. It is not true as evidenced by the existence of your personal configuration. And that is exactly the culprit. Very often the ...
  • Replied in No no no
    Why do you think it shouldn't be done? There are numerous posts about users who fixed their issues (and yes, it was Panasonic cameras too), especially with IBIS after an update. It should be well ...
  • While the update process itself is usually safe to do, just make sure that you reset the camera to factory defaults immediately after migrating to the newest firmware. People report numerous ...
  • It is NOT a major problem, at all. Which is the only way to operate a channel like this, of course. Unless being rich of course, lol. YES! We get handpicked and well selected gear for the marketing ...
  • Just for future reference I would like to point the reader to Christopher Frost's incredibly valuable lens review for the 35mm and other lenses. He doesn't just post claims and his opinions, but ...
  • That one is meant for professional sports shooters on the sidelines, I think. Here you see it as a plus. But it only has f4, which is less suitable for sports shooters.
  • Or you have activated Lightroom's automatic import. In this case I would just turn it off and see what happens.
  • You may have a second tool activated, that imports your files in the background automatically without your knowledge, after you insert your card. Is this possible? What happens when you insert a ...
  • There is still a chance that your image was only removed from the catalog and not entirely deleted from the drive. Normally this happens if you hit the backspace key, but I don't know. I have ...
  • You could export your new 4 and 5-star images as a catalog file from LR classic and then import them in Lightroom. You then have to do this every time you are done with your images. The Adobe ...
  • I agree with your points. If resetting doesn't work, I think it could be a faulty collar switch from water damage.
  • Now I'm confused, too. I don't want to get on your nerves, but are you looking at the first tone curve only, by any chance? There are two RGB curves. Then followed by the curves for each channel. T ...
  • Have you tried to reset your camera? This usually fixed all my problems, especially after an update.
  • That preset does not use a custom profile, rather the standard adobe profile. Have you looked at the tone curve when you applied the preset? It looks like this: The orange arrow marks the black ...
  • Thanks for explaining it. That is quite some reverse engineering that you did. It seems more complex than I could have figured out. Interesting approach to use Nik color effects. I might have to ...
  • Just dial the clarity slider all the way to -100 and you get a very similar look. That doesn't explain the amplified glow in the highlights, though. Maybe a luminance mask and some selective ...
