  • Replied in New Phone
    I've read that it only uses 60% of the sensor for imaging. That's still quite large, but still kind of misleading.  TBH, I think $1800 for a phone is stupid for even the wealthy.
  • The "Five" will be a bit smaller and lighter, with improved video capabilities.  It's only a tiny bit larger than my E-M10 II.  Great for hikers, nature photographers, and casual video use.  ...
  • Yes, it looks like 1.10.3 Windows release was primarily to keep both system versions in sync.  While it's a PITA for company and consumer, it will likely, keep confusion down in the long run.
  • Will do!  Likely a day or two though!  I've a busy weekend!
  • Out of curiosity I ran it against a DNG generated by Topaz Denoise (not something I would normally do) from an ORF. It was unable to extract or even 'see', I guess, a preview image. Do you know if ...
  • Have you contacted Customer support? (not the user's forum, real Cust support) As a Landscape and nature photographer, I'm not much of a face detection user so I don't know how it works or should ...
  • Young people might not realize this was even possible. It wasn't until I followed the path all the way to the Thom Hogan reference that a clear explanation of 'why' was made. Thanks for the work BTW.
  • how do I get rid of Win 33 systweak. Based on what I read on that web page, it may be that not all malware programs might consider it true malware. It's a PITA to be sure. Here is a thread from the ...
  • I have it on NO authority whatsoever, that the commercial coffee-maker company, "Bunn" will buy OMDS for the patents on IBIS. Their goal is to use the technology to shake the last bits of water ...
  • Don't invest TOO much emotional energy into this.  It will likely be a bit more than nothing, and greeted as a generally positive move, by most users.  But I suspect it won't be the ...
  • Doesn't that apply to Windows 10, in general?  Linux, Android? Every internet browser on the planet? Not trying to be a wise guy, But I think everyone assumes there is some sort of tradeoff in ...
  • I like that first one, it's different.  And I think I'd crop the bottom third of the second one out. With that crop, I think it would be the strongest of the three.  The third one is missing a ...
  • :-D A life in software development leaves me requiring exact language, and that sometimes spills over into my social life. For those who don't know much about words, the Microsoft dictionary pulled ...
  • mmm, Maybe. But my "plastic body" Olympus E500 is still going strong and is as capable of full function service as ever. Clearly, its service life has extended well beyond its viable economic ...
  • It's not clear to me how what is essentially a resizing program could effectively use masking tools.
  • Replied in C&C
    I don't use prime lenses, the zooms are now quite good, and oh. . . so. . . convenient. I don't see much problem in selling the 9-18 if you decide to upgrade.  It is a perennially popular (and ...
  • Thanks, but no thanks. That will just turn into a "which is better" thread with hard feelings, tears, and attempted thread hijacking between 2 or more people with their nose out of joint. Personall ...
  • Replied in C&C
    I'm a WA sort of shooter, and I like the 9-10mm 1:4.0-5.6 well enough. It's reasonably sharp for a lens in its price range. But the distortion at 9mm requires significant correction, but as you ...
  • The third-party products do offer extra value.  Windows Defender (or whatever it's called this week) offers good basic protection, and for those who don't frequent risky web sites or download apps ...
