    Holy macro (no pun intended). I have not posted on that forum in ages. I like your solution much better, JB. I have been yearing for that gemfor a while now. May be I should sell 24/f2 and get that 135. This one is a 64 image overlay in 2 rows. I do need to […]

    Never heard of a culset. Googled it and look at what I found:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/26785843My short answer is that I shrink MFD by using the 135mm. Statistics: Posted by jbtaylor — Tue May 26, 2015 8:16 pm

    Yeah, those big ones on buildings are just like the ones in Madrid I mentioned earlier -- except they were in Spanish. I haven't seen any iphone posters here in Budapest though.Statistics: Posted by bakubo — Tue May 26, 2015 8:02 pm

    That is a fantastic bokeh. What is the MFD on that beauty? Have you tried "cutting it short" by using a culset? I did precisely that recently on Rokinon and here is how it looks. Nothing compared to your shots but then... No one can take away my right to be dumb right? I was […]

ACR 6.2 2010 Process – huge improvement

Following the release of Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 and 6.2, the new ’2010 Process’ has replaced the ’2003 Process’ in conversions (you can select either option).

Sony Alpha 350 – a Creative Review

The introduction of a £399 (street price, RRP £449) DSLR with 14.2 megapixels – with or without a useful type of Live View – should have been applauded by reviewers. It’s the single most important point about the camera. No other DSLR approaches this image size and resolution at such a low price. . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 350 – a Creative Review

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw
