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

I haven't looked at it, but if you like Rawtherapee then you might also look at ART. I saw this written about it today: ART is a fork of RawTherapee, and contains all the power of RT, without the complexity. The author continues to be very aggressive in refactoring the tools in RT to be more user fr...

Re: The Changed World

I saw what looked like a barely used Nikon F2AS + Nikkor 43-86mm + Nikkor 80-200mm f4.5 in the glass case of a small camera shop a couple of days ago. All for 19,800 yen - $190.

Re: 1958 Sears Camera Catalog

It is cool seeing the film pages in the catalog to check out the 1958 film. Of course, the film ratings were pretty slow even compared to what I was using in the 1970s. And they are extremely slow compared to what we are accustomed to with digital cameras. Here are some examples: Kodak Tri-X B&W...

Re: Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani, Japan

Thank you, Yildiz!

It sure was great to finally see them. The only other traveling we have done in 2020 is we flew up to Sapporo in September and stayed a couple of months.

Fingers crossed the vaccines start getting us back to a somewhat more normal life and travel in a few more months!

Re: Photographers getting the squeeze....

Interesting old thread from 10.5 years ago. I guess I missed it before. 2020 with the coronavirus has turned things upside down even more. I don't know about what it is like for people making a living from photography, but I assume that just like most people they have had a big hit on their life and...

Canon G16 review has most interest

A few days ago I posted several threads with my user reviews and comparisons of several cameras. It is interesting that the old Canon G16 has the most interest. :) Rather surprising.
