steephill's recent activity

  • Created discussion thread A short trip on the Danube from Vienna
    Inspired by Phil Zucker's excellent virtual tours I thought I would have a go and share this one. We had a week sightseeing in Vienna recently and after a few days of pounding the streets and art ...
  • Adobe end use license agreements Can I use my software on two computers? If you own, or are the primary user of, a single-user- or volume-license Adobe product that is installed on a computer at ...
  • Although you can install LR on 2 computers they must be the same general type - I.e. both Windows or both Macs. You can't install one copy to one of each so you would need to purchase another copy.
  • The manufacturer shot is taken with the camera level with the model. Yours has been taken from above and this is the cause of the differences. The solution is to do as the manufacturer has done ...
  • Replied in F35-70
    This is quite usable on the K1 and puts in a decent performance. It is about the same size as the F50 prime making a nice light option for walkabout shooting. Having just lugged the K1 and the ...
  • Adobe codec download link
  • I would recommend reading the book "Light Science and Magic" which is one of the best sources on lighting technique. You could also try posting your questions in the Pro forum here.
  • Replied in Not our choice
    It is up to DPR to appoint moderators based on the willingness of volunteers putting themselves forward. Few wish to undertake such a role as it can be something of a thankless task.
  • The catalogue is fundamental to how Lightroom works so it is virtually impossible to ignore it if you want to work with Lightroom. One analogy is a good old fashioned book library. The shelves ...
  • Was wondering if it would ever happen but the latest Lightroom release (6.7) now has support for the 08 lens. Seems to be a fairly mild set of corrections so looks like the lens designers did a ...
  • The key word here is neutral. Not all grey cards are neutral enough for white balance work although they work OK for exposure determination.
  • Created discussion thread Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
    Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane.
  • Created discussion thread Impressed with K1 high ISO
    I wouldn't have even tried this shot with my K7 but this looks pretty good to me after a little clean-up in LR. Subject is a twilight race at the Goodwood Revival meeting.
  • Created discussion thread Grab shot - Lancaster bomber
    Heard the familiar sound of Rolls Royce Merlin engines so looked out of the window to see this. Luckily my K1 + DFA*70-200 was sitting on the sofa so was quickly aimed through my grubby double ...
  • Expedited doesn't mean instant. How fast do you think they can ship from (presumably) the other side of the world? Add in the difference in time zones and you can easily add a working day for any ...
  • In P-TTL auto mode there is both a minimum and maximum range over which you can expect the correct exposure. Check your flash manual and you will find a table that shows how the effective range ...
  • Photos of kit never do justice to the reality of having it in your hands. I will need to adjust my handling technique to get the best out of this monster. I have already noticed that I need to ...
  • Read the question carefully first before replying. The OP is looking for advice on a film SLR, buying advice on digital isn't relevant.
  • You can tell LR to make a second copy to another drive/folder when you use it to copy your files from the memory card. I do this every time and it creates an instant backup for me on an external ...
  • Well parts of anyway. Like this one Nice find!
