Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I have not tried ON1, but they seem to be making steady progress. I have heard that early adopters were often unhappy, but I have also heard that they have continuously updated it, fixed bugs, and added new features. I see today that they have a new major version out. ON1 Photo RAW 2019 arrives with...

Re: What am I missing? millennial photography...

Saw this today. Photo of John Lennon by Andy Warhol http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2018/10/photo-of-john-lennon.html There is a lot of poetic artspeak analysis of why the photo is so excellent in the blog post. When I see photos such as this which, in my opinion, de...

Re: Ordered an RX100

I will note that from the times I have handled the RX100 the biggest ergonomic negative for me is the clickless dial around the lens. I sure don't like that. Canon uses a dial with clicks. Since I always have the front dial set to EC a click dial is much nicer. I can get by with the clickless dial ...

Re: What am I missing? millennial photography...

I see that your post has 118 views so far and no one responded. I have posted things that had 400, 500, 1000 views without a single response. The forum here is mostly dead. Not because no one comes here though. Hundreds of people come here, read stuff, but they never contribute anything. Unfortunate...

Re: Ordered an RX100

Henry! I can not believe you did not take any pictures with the new camera. :) You have nerves of steel ... Just tell us about the camera. Where is the photo? :) Here is one from a few days ago. :) Taken as a jpeg, not raw. I think I have taken only about 50 photos with the camera so far. Since it ...

Re: Blurb B&W photo books

Just an fyi. Here is something from someone who has been using Blurb for photos books for quite awhile: The Blurb Experience http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2015/03/the-blurb-experience.html This was written in 2015. If anything, I think Blurb has gotten a bit better.

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I found that darktable is very powerful and flexible, but I am still using LR Classic CC. I still prefer LR by far. With darktable there are just so many ways to do similar things, lots of controls, and many options. But, it takes a lot of dedication to learn it well. You can see how it is clearly w...

Re: KM5D sensor failure?

I do not know what the problem is, but you have to admit you have got a lot of use out of your KM 5D. It came out over 13 years ago. In the digital age that seems like ancient history. I hate for stuff I still like to have problems, but after more than a dozen years it might just be time to accept t...

Re: Blurb B&W photo books

I made both of those books using the Book module in Lightroom Classic CC. I didn't notice until after the B&W book arrived though that there is no writing on the spine. LR does not provide a way to do that and since it doesn't it made it easy to not even think about it when I made it. So, a few...

Re: Ordered an RX100

In 2012 soon after getting the S95 I discovered that the rear display in vertical orientation would appear to turn black if I was wearing polarized sunglasses, but in horizontal orientation it was okay. I checked my RX100 wearing polarized sunglasses and it works in both orientations. Great.

Re: Ordered an RX100

Something I really like about my S95 is that with the camera off and the lens retracted I can press the play button to look at photos. I discovered that the RX100 can do the same thing, but I did find a difference though. With the S95 I press the play button again when I am finished. With the RX100 ...

Re: Ordered an RX100

I charged the battery overnight so this morning I turned it on for the first time, set the date/time, and went through the menu to check it out. I notice that it has firmware 2.0, but on the Sony website it says the newest is 1.1. Hmm. I did some searching though and see that others who bought an R...

Re: Ordered an RX100

Just for Bakubo - we are in Kyoto today (!) and in spite of typhoon Jebi went to a Yuzen dyeing class as part of our trip. A friend P*S'd us in fluorescent lighting with my RX100. A dash of white balance in RAW in LR, export jpg and there you are. We have been back in Hawaii for the last 5 months a...

Re: Ordered an RX100

I've got the model 1 and it's a super camera, even without the upgrades. A pit bull bit it a couple of years ago and Sony said it would cost $300 to replace the screen and in their opinion, not worth it. So I bought a screen off ebay and did it myself. The camera trundles on. Enjoy! Glad you were a...
