Yeah, I realized even back then you were trying to ignore my post because it was inconvenient. :)

Re: Sony Alpha A99 Field Test Report

I have read them but I disagree makers are overstating their ISO numbers. I picked on Olympus because they are one of the easy ones to spot..and they have a shady corporate past too so much more likely to cheat :lol: Awhile back I pulled out my A700 and my E-M5 and shot the same subject in the same...

Old Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.

Best of luck to everyone all around the world!

We are still in Japan, but since October have been living in a medium size city and in the suburbs (get around by car, not crowded trains) and not in Tokyo and other big, crowded cities.

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

Interesting posts about highlight recovery in On1 Photo Raw 2020. The method of doing it is different than in Lightroom and once you understand that this guy says it is better than Lightroom. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63775411 https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63774800

Re: Why I sold my Plustek 7200i

The thought of scanning 100's of slides with multiscan fills me with horror I spent an entire day scanning 200 slides and just used it on a select few. Still at least I can load 4 slides per scan, so it's def less of a nightmare job then the Plustek used to be I suggest you read through this intere...

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

Barry, I read about the ART version of Rawtherapee today. You mentioned that you are using Rawtherapee so you may be interested in this alternative version: https://bitbucket.org/agriggio/art/wiki/Home At a first glance, ART appears very similar to RawTherapee. The Getting Started page of RawPedia c...

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

I will check the darktable news from time to time to see if anything significant has changed, but I doubt it will. It has so much potential, but it is not to be. A few years ago there were not too many choices, but now there are some pretty good ones: Integrated raw processor, non-destructive editor...

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

I have seen responses to my post on the darktable forum and it is exactly what I expected. The main developer dismisses it all and the others pile on. Oh well. Typical head up their ass geeks. They can't see the forest for the trees. :lol:

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

You can read this recent long post by one of the main developers who personally keeps making the use of darktable more complicated and complex than it was even before. And naming things using obscure mathematical names, etc. He sounds defensive and tries with great effort to justify him making thin...

Re: How wide is wide enough?

Up until 1990 my widest lens was 28mm. In 1990 in Tokyo I bought a Sigma 24mm f2.8 (A-mount) and I still have it. I used it sometimes on my Minolta film SLRs and on my A700 I would sometimes use it because it was a very small 36mm-efl. In 1991 I bought a Tokina 20-35mm f3.5-4.5 (A-mount) and I still...
