Re: SAR rumour CZ E-mount 16-80mm zoom

This is exactly what I have been waiting for. I have the current CZ16-80 in A-mount and the only thing keeping me from selling it is not having its equivalent in E-mount. It will be a huge disappointment if it doesn't have OSS. I didn't see the rumor saying anywhere that it wouldn't and I can't imag...

Re: Canon users discuss SLT-A77

One poster suggests the life of the OLED viewfinder/colours might be limited which is interesting, and of course this could apply to LCD's too (backlight tends to go first) If that is a concern or not who can say. With today's rate of exponential technological change, it would effectively be an ant...

Re: V1.01 Firmware for Nex7 greatly improves shadows

Well, this is definitely good news! I just now got around to doing the update so haven't had a chance to test it in daylight but will do it soon. Thanks for all your work!

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Well, I just got around to installing the ACR beta release and distortion-wise, I can't tell any difference between the jpg and the raw, which must mean that they have a profile in there. But when I checked the drop-down box, ACR doesn't list one for the RX100. Nevertheless, when I click back and f...

The more I read/see/hear about Alaska, the more I know I have to go back.

Re: Minolta 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 APO or 75-300 Beercan

I had the 100-300 APO and liked it for my long distance hiking lens because it was compact and light weight. I also have the 100-400 APO and consider it a better lens than the 100-300 APO. The 100-400 APO is slightly lighter than the 75-300 beercan and yet offers better reach, so that is something t...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Just checked ACR raw va JPEG on RX100 - yes, there is a tiny difference but you have to use a large screen preview even to spot the shift. Yes, I do see that tiny shift difference, but it looks like most of the image is shifting itself upwards (I checked all corners) and I thought at first it was j...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

It's my understanding that they don't have a lens profile for the RX100 yet and I was kinda waiting around and hoping for that.

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Yeah duh! I was forgetting the camera is too new for Adobe yet, and I have heard that processing in IDC is pretty much equivalent to what you get with a camera processed JPEG anyway, I don’t know how true that is as I’ve only ever dabbled a little bit with the program and I’m no expert at processin...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Ed I was just thinking about the blotchy stuff in the sky appearing lately in images and wondering if it varies if a RAW file is processed twice and the jpegs compared with each other, if the same blotches appear in the same place then it’s most likely the camera (maybe) but if there is a different...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

How was the RX100 image processed Ed? (or not) Greg It's a jpg that I just ramped up the vibrance, saturation and contrast to make it stand out. That was all. Just looking at the shot before doing any of that, it looks fine. I picked up one of those Lensmate filter adapters. They just became availa...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Since I'm planning to buy the a99 as my first SLT camera, I'm disappointed to hear that the SLT hardware may not work well with polarizers. Because of the uneven effect on blue skies and reduction in light, I usually avoid these filters. I can do the skies better in post processing. However, the fi...

Re: Polariser plus SLT - blotchy sky problem

Yes Ed that looks like it has potential if the numerous bands can be smoothed out; trouble is David has already had a bash at it too, it’s not the original file so that makes it difficult to fiddle with. Greg, I'm not seeing the bands while in photoshop and wonder if, in addition to stripping out t...
