    Nikon seem to bring out a new body every 6 months, I know that's an exaggeration, but its close. We now have 6 up date/variants of the D5000 in a space of less years. as said, Canon are almost as prolific. Yes, I also have the Fuji X-10 bought a year after launch, its a […]

Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

After just a short while working with full frame, high resolution DSLRs the need for tilt lenses has really come home to me. Most lenses deliver their best results at fairly wide apertures like f8, it’s easy for detail to begin to look soft and lacking impact if you are forced to stop down to . . . → Read More: Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw

Apple’s Aperture 2.0 is a tedious program to test, with all its creation of ‘projects’ and ‘libraries’, ‘albums’, ‘vaults’ and nonstandard GUI, and it isn’t fast in processing files or passing them to Photoshop (which it does in 16-bit form, just another step to reverse before saving as far as I’m concerned). However, it’s handling . . . → Read More: Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw
