    Me and PD.

    The first thing my neurologist suspected was drug-induced Parkinsonism and I had to stop olanzapine (Zyprexa) for 3 months. I was taking it for treatment-resistant depression. I later had a trial PET scan (with radioactive dopamine) which showed dopamine depletion - possibly same as a DAT...

    Me and PD.

    On a couple of occasions on this forum I've mentioned that I have Parkinson's Disease (PD). I was diagnosed in 2013 but have probably had it for at least 10 years. I want to share some of the insights I now have by posting here once or twice a week. My intention is to keep it pretty light. I'd...

    The New House at Number 35.

    Thanks Luke. A timelapse may work when the brickies are on site but elevation is a problem. I'm on a ladder to take these.

    The New House at Number 35.

    There is a new house being built on the block behind our house. I have taken a few photos at significant stages and thought I'd continue to share them from time to time in this thread. Unfortunately, I missed recording the demolition. Photos are taken with the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye lens set to...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. RAW.

    This is the first shot with the 850 and I was expecting essentially b&w too. It is a cheap no-name filter but will try it on my X100T and see. Here is the RAW (as jpg). Here it is processed in ACR as others were. And for comparison here is yesterday's image from the Pana GF1. It seems...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. B&W jpgs for interest only - sooc.

    If I want an infrared image to be B&W I always process from RAW. However, I set my IR camera to RAW + jpg and use a B&W camera preset. The only reason for this is that the viewfinder is easier to see in B&W than the mostly red IR version. The sooc images below are just for interest.

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. Processsed from RAW.

    The 5 RAW images in the previous post are processed as follows: 1. In Adobe Camera Raw apply a pre-prepared camera profile which is based on a custom IR white balance. 2. In ACR use the eyedropper to set local WB from a neutral area. 3. In PS use the Channel Mixer to swap the Red and Blue...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. RAW.

    As I've mentioned I own a full spectrum converted infrared camera so it 'sees' most of the ultraviolet and infrared range of light (deliberately blocked in a normal camera) as well as the visible spectrum. You can limit this to parts of the visible + infrared spectrum by using external filters...

    The higher-end Kolari conversion filters -- worth it?

    Can't answer your question but like Brian I currently have a full spectrum converted GF1 and have a mix of brands of filters over the range 590, 630, 720 and 850 which gives a lot of choice instead of locking in a single wavelength. With external filters there is also little to no dust problem...

    Mike in West Aust there are very few timber-framed houses. We prefer double brick. People who add another storey commonly use timber for the addition. Steel frames are often used by rural builders, also for transportables. In the eastern states timber frames with or without external brick...

    Free Franzis HDR Projects Professional 4.

    Jock I can understand your frustration. This is the freebie site, not Franzis itself as you sussed out. You can choose not to download their notifier, but I guess there is still no 'free lunch'. :frown: I amuse myself by downloading a lot of free software, 98% of which I uninstall. I use...

    Micro 4/3 Micro 4/3 samples

    There is a house going up on the side of us and the concrete slab was poured today. The dividing fence is too high to see over so I use the flip-down screen and perch the camera on the top rail. These are jpegs with the Samyang 7.5mm set to 16:9 in camera and de-fished in Paintshop Pro.

    File sizes from different editors

    Not 100% sure of this but I seem to remember that some cameras at least save files to a standard size 'envelope' while others more closely follow the actual pixel count. Not sure about different software but it's an intriguing observation.

    Infrared Gear The Meike 25mm f1.8 and infrared

    I have 'toyed' with IR 3 times over the last 15 years. Got 'back in' this time with my X100T and Hoya R72 but found a full spectrum converted GF1 and recently received a trio 590/630/850 filters which I'm yet to try.

    What I got from it is the value in trying more variations and just 'more' images. On reflection, I am still too conservative when it comes to taking more shots - a hangover from film habits?
