  • There are so few lens tests that people are obviously going to use any gallery to inspect the lens as well as the camera. However thanks for the reply Samuel Spencer.

  • It is amazing how differently people think. I like test photos to show the capabilities of the camera/lens, I’m happy to take the photographers skill for granted. Once again there is no Seattle...

  • DPReview do you know what's happened to the X-A3, it has been pre-order for months but no show.

  • If you are using kit lenses, 18-55/135, possibly they are not up to showing the difference 8mp and lack of aa filter should make. Could be part of the issue.
  • Thanks for the kind words everyone. Ian
  • OK thanks for the reply, but why is the roof top comparison tool seldom used. Quite a few reviews don't include a suitable large depth of field view at all. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would...

  • Why are the roof tops photos shot at sunset? If you are trying to show what the lens is like at infinity at each aperture, you should shoot on a clear day with the sun behind you. You created a...

  • Created discussion thread Open up K30?
    The end of the plastic clip holding the battery in place has snapped in my K30. I can make a new one but wondered if anyone has taken a K30 apart and has any advice? It looks like you can get to ...
  • Nicely done. I don't think topaz is for those looking for a realistic outcome but more a artistic one. I know opinions vary but I'm OK with turning photos into whatever takes my fancy.
  • Thanks for the comment you obviously know the place better than I.
  • Created photo thread Trains and Topaz Adjust
    I did some processing using Topaz Adjust and thought someone else may find it interesting. I was allowed inside a train shed where there wasn't much light and I used topaz to beef up the shots. ...
  • Created photo thread Some more UK buildings
    Some more photos edited with topaz adjust. I tried not to go too mad with it, just made them more punchy. Hope you like, Ian.
  • The Seattle roof tops photo is missing once again. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see it in every test gallery. I want to know what is the best image quality available, corner to...

  • Created photo thread UK buildings
    Fiddling around with Topaz Adjust, thought someone might like a look as there aren't many photos these days.
  • I'd love a converted camera, you'll be out shining me in no time. Thanks Ian
  • I will always think of him as Sherlock Holmes' smarter brother , RIP.
  • I'm afraid my comment came from knowledge not experience. I suspect there is not really a lot of difference at the end of the day between the 100 and 90.
  • As you asked for cc and got no replies, I thought I'd offer a few thoughts. The 28-300 is a good lens for the money and gives quite a range. When they say it is macro they are being a little loose ...
  • I'm sorry I can't answer your question but I thought a post with such nice images should get a reply. I use an r72 filter for my ir photos but I'd love a camera like yours. Any way, I enjoyed ...
  • Photoshop and Lightroom take a different approach to editing photos and many prefer one to the other. Therefore it would be helpful to group competitors alike. Serif Photoplus and Corel Paintshop...
