About me:

I've been actively engaged in photography for about 35 years, the past 20 as a professional. I studied photography at the Institute for Contemporary Photography in Tokyo and the International Center of Photography in New York, have photos in the permanent collection at the Kiyosato Museum of Photography in Japan, have taught photography at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the International Center of Photography in New York, co-founded event photography company Happening Photos in New York, and serve clients around the world. I also shoot, print, exhibit and sell fine art travel & landscape photos.

  • The a7RII is a fantastic camera for the price, particularly in terms of image quality. It's great for static subjects, including portraits. However, I found the AF too complex for event work, ...
  • Key questions: What are your realistic expectations for upgrading and expanding your kit? What's your budget and time frame for this? For the kind of work you're planning to do, it'll be essential ...
  • Also, was that two images in a total of 17 seconds, i.e. 8.5 seconds each?
  • Replied in Same here
    I'm seeing the same thing when exporting to LR DNGs made from processing iPhone 7 DNGs and Panasonic LF1 & LX100 RAWs. Current versions of LR Classic and Catalina.
  • Replied in DOH!
    I had Prime selected, but the tiny toggle switch at top left of the Noise Reduction panel was off. So, NO noise reduction was being applied. Another test run took 4:15 to export five 42MP a7RIII ...
  • Would you kindly describe in detail exactly in what way your EVF "struggled"? Are you referring to light entering the viewfinder from the side/back? Is your EVF not bright enough even with the VF ...
  • Created discussion thread DxO PhotoLab Elite 3.3 turbocharged???
    I recently updated DxO PhotoLab Elite 3 to v3.3, and to my shock it now exports JPEGs from 42MP a7RIII RAWs - with PRIME noise reduction applied - in 4 seconds, where previously it took a full ...
  • Replied in iPhone?
    I've got Panasonic LF1 and LX100 for EDC, as well as an FZ1000, GX9, and bigger cameras. But, these days, I'm increasingly leaning toward replacing my iPhone 7 with a newer model that has dual or ...
  • When sun dazzles my eye, I can't see an OVF, either. I have zero issues viewing my EVFs in bright light. Occasionally, I'll just shade the side of my eye with my hand if sidelight is creeping in. ...
  • Or simply inertia and the cost of switching after having invested heavily in the system 10 years ago when it was the best. I'd probably still be shooting my 1D & 1Ds MkIII today if my needs hadn't ...
  • Replied in D750 & a7RII
    Please quote me in your reply so I can see what you're responding to. Were you trying to reply to the OP? I don't think I ever mentioned a 24-70 zoom, so don't know what you're referring to. Yes, ...
  • First, what on earth do you mean by "can struggle a bit"? Second, I guess you just need a modern EVF. Third, see my profile, gear list and websites, then convince me that you have more ...
  • This combo will not out-resolve a similarly priced 20MP MFT camera with a 12-60 (24-120 EFL) kit zoom, and it will produce only 2/3 of a stop less noise at high ISO. For someone who just wants a ...
  • Typical cop-out response, devoid of actual information and dripping with passive-aggressive hostility. Welcome to my ignore list.
  • Replied in GPU vs CPU cores
    Whether a discrete GPU helps depends greatly on the apps you're using. DxO PhotoLab 3 Elite leans mainly on the CPU and scales linearly with the number of cores. It doesn't need a powerful GPU, ...
  • My 2017 dual-core 13" $1500 MBP is plenty capable of handling my high-volume event work via Lightroom and DxO PhotoLab 3 Elite. The main limitation is the time it takes to batch export hundreds of ...
  • Replied in How much data?
    How much data is active and how much to be archived? My approach is to keep my LR catalog and the master image files of projects I'm still processing on my Mac's internal SSD. I have LR ...
  • My 2012 and 2017 13" MBPs had/have no trouble driving a 27" NEC (2560x1440). My 2013 Mac Pro with dual D500 cards easily drives a 24" NEC (2560x1440) and 32" NEC (4K). I haven't tried the 2017 13" ...
  • I haven't had any issues using my 2013 Mac Pro with High Sierra and Catalina to update the firmware in my a7RII, a7III and two a7RIIIs. Don't believe there have been any updates for my lenses, though.
