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...

Re: Ordered an RX100

Just a short update. I finally got the RX100 last night, Friday night. It was supposed to arrive the previous Friday, but Hurricane Lane screwed up all kinds of shipments to Hawaii for everything. Then, apparently, it got lost before it arrived to Hawaii because the tracking info stopped in Californ...

Thanks, Yildiz!

Ahh, Maui. I was on Maui in 1984 and 1989 so a long time ago.

Where was that photo taken? On Kauai? Almost looks like a drone photo. :)

Re: Ordered an RX100

Yes, I will do that. Here are a few usage stats of my Canon S95. Most used focal lengths: ⋅ 6mm (28mm): 1937 ⋅ 22.5mm (105mm): 310 ⋅ And all the rest spread pretty evenly between the other focal lengths. Most used ISO: ⋅ ISO 80: 1893 ⋅ ISO 800: 160 &...

Re: Ordered an RX100

Yes, I will. Amazon says Friday delivery, but big Hurricane Lane is about to get to us here in Hawaii and it looks like the bad weather is likely to be Thursday/Friday. If so then probably the camera won't get to me on Friday.
