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

I read a tip somewhere about the small, fiddly sliders. My recollection is that you can just place the mouse cursor over one and then use the scroll wheel to make adjustments and that is much easier. I hope my recollection is correct. I still have 2.4 on my computer, but I haven't played with it in ...

Re: Sony Alpha A99 Field Test Report

Good new article about ISO with digital cameras.

Is ISO Fake?

Re: Signed up awhile ago, but didn't introduce myself

They also had a Yashica ML 55mm f2.8 macro (manual focus) with original front/rear caps and a Kenko 52mm skylight filter for $5. I looked it over and it looked to be in really good shape so I bought it. I also bought an old (probably mid-1990s based on the styling) A-mount Tamron AF 70-300mm f4-5.6...

Re: My ignorance (perhaps) - A99M2

With the FF sensor in the A99M2 I doubt if you will notice any problems at all. So what if the camera takes 3 or 5 photos varying from ISO 100 to 400, for example. I am sure ISO 400 is excellent.

Re: My ignorance (perhaps) - A99M2

That sounds like a reasonable way when using Auto ISO. No chance of DOF changing if the aperture is changed and less chance of problems with subject movement or shake if a lower shutter speed is used. If you prefer to use the same ISO then as you discovered turn off Auto ISO.

Re: Let's post some panoramas

. I won't be able to go into specifics and favourites, Henry, but these are brilliant albums and photos. :) Thank you for taking a look, Yildiz. The Setonaikai (Seto Inland Sea) is a great place that I have spent a lot of time around for the last 20 years. It is the sea between Honshu and Shikoku a...

Re: Let's post some panoramas

Recently we spent a couple of weeks in Hiroshima (been there quite a few times since 1985) and in the middle of that time we went to Kure for a couple of days. I have stopped there for just a few minutes several times while riding a ferry for 3 hours going to Hiroshima, but I have never stopped to s...

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

Here in Paris at the entrance to the metro stations they all have a big Apple iphone 6 advertising posters with various beautiful photos made by the iphone 6. The photos are printed very large. Of course, any camera is capable of taking good photos with care and these photos have all had a lot of p...

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

I have the latest LR Classic CC 8.1 now. I have never used the face detection (People) function after all these years of using LR. I decided to give it a try so I let it start scanning through my 105k catalog. It has been going full tilt for 76 hours and it says it has done 82%. All 4 cores of my i...

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

I agree about darktable. They have all the stuff in it and way more, but the UI could use a bit of work and mainly they need to start using names and controls that make sense to photographers. Too much technical stuff exposed and too many confusing ways to accomplish the same thing. As I said before...

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

I am glad people are still taking photos with their tiny sensor cameras! I got a 1" Sony RX100 (sensor is too big for this thread) a few months ago so recently I have not used my Canon S95 or Canon G16. I might have a smartphone photo or two that might be worth posting here though. I will have ...
