  • Alpha NEX system • Re: An Interesting Dilema For The Future April 28, 2016
    Different preferences,different solutions. Now I don't often go over 300mm let alone 600mm so it's a matter of choice, and I can't justify upgrading to say a Series 11 70 - 400 mm A mount or any FE similar lens that may become available. The quality of the Sony 1 inch sensor is acceptable to […]

    I still have my 5d's I like the idea of bridge cameras, but back in 35mm days you could get them (good ones) for a similar price to a 35mm SLR and basic lens.For that reason I went for one, though I regret it longer term starting off it was a solid move.The problem with […]

    Unfortunately my Sigma70-300 died with af gear stripped down. I am taking a 28-200 Tamron that is in "stock pile". Hopefully a tad more reach but it is not 300mm FL. It is now too late to acquire any new lens. SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Tue Apr 26, 2016 7:34 pm

    Ah, it was Peru, not Cuba, I was thinking of. A77M2 and the 16-80 will be an awesome combo. I can understand you not wanting to lug around the 70-400; it is a beast. If you think you may want some extra range over 80mm then I would suggest something such as the Sigma 70-300 […]

Free download PDF guide to Adobe Camera Raw

You can open or download an excellent (slightly dated, unrevised since ACR 6.1 but finally translated into English from the original Italian by Francesco Marzoli) guide to all the deeper functions and tricks of efficient workflow using Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop from X-Rite:

http://www.xritephoto.com/Documents/Literature/EN/GuidaCameraRaw_en.pdf

This PDF instruction book obviously mentions the use of X-Rite’s ColorChecker Passport for calibrating cameras, that’s why they have sponsored the guide. But it goes far beyond this to explain with clarity all the controls of ACR, and many tips are given on how to use them best.

As an example, we didn’t know that Bridge could be forced to use Camera Raw without taking over Photoshop – meaning it can be run separately, allowing you to do other work in Photoshop while ACR does file conversion and saving from within Bridge alone.

You can load this guide into your iPad or other reading device. Just SAVE the target file, and ADD to your iTunes Bookstore Library, it will then be readable. For other devices simply save the PDF and transfer.
