I don't need another camera. For the first time I can say that and mean it after thinking it through. My Z6 shoots everything, better than any camera I've ever owned , close enough that I don't care. Nikon's updates have helped this platform grow into a world class imaging system. That's how...
Just thought I'd throw it out there for no good reason at all. I now have a Macbook that's called MintyMac. I'm importing (in place) to Shotwell, and have installed Gimp with the ufRaw plugin. I also installed XNViewMP though I have not yet used it. Early days and I am just as likely to...
. . . of a different kind.
I was intrigued by "the shape of the light," and tried to capture it with three different cameras.
The better half (aka spotter-in-chief) has put up with me for 43 years. I am blessed.
And I cannot tell you how BEYOND please I am with it.
My only issue is that I should have taken pictures of it before I sent it off. Let's just say that the original black leather panels were in used condition and I was not 100% sure that the thing was exposing correctly.
I opened the box and...
2020 has been a very difficult year for me. I really shouldn’t complaint much, as I actually haven’t been very affected, but it has been a nerve wrecking year due to several difficult decisions and actions that this pandemic situation required.
Anyway and avoid having to go through...
As part of my cunning plan to stave off insanity during the covid situation I've spent some time trying to set up satisfactory jpeg outputs from some of my Panasonic cameras. This morning was my first attempt at anything other than a standard test subject, the view from my kitchen door.
I have a good friend I've known since my high school days. Over the years we have, and continue to joke on each other. For a few years we were working the same convention together. In 2016, I found this epic shirt. The con owner got in on the fun and did the ultimate set up. While an audience of...
When I made the trip to the camera store, I had no intentions of really buying anything. I was curious about possibly looking to see if there were any used Fuji XT30 for a good price, but it was really only a curiosity.
When I arrived, I noticed that they had a few used XT3 bodies...
With virtually no photography under ny belt in the last few months I've been experimenting with the jpeg settings in camera, initially on my Leica D-Lux typ 109. These are some results from the monochrome photo style setting with some tweaks to contrast. They have had minimal processing in GIMP...
The only photographs I've taken in the last few months have been of rodent remains (skulls and jaw bones) from Barn owl pellets. Having experimented with in camera jpeg settings I took my Leica D-Lux 109 out this afternoon set to jpeg only. The results have had minimal processing in GIMP, levels...
Canon PowerShot A530
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV
First things first, no there really isn't a "right answer" to the question. Second, it's nice that a question like this can be asked here and not generate flame attacks as you would in too many forums.
I keep trying to formulate a detailed post and just haven't been able to. But here goes...
Well, I surprised myself this week. I pulled the trigger on a barely used X-Pro3. It's due to arrive this weekend and I am looking forward to working with the camera - and comparing it to my X-Pro2.
But my almost-impulse decision to jump on the deal (the price was just too good) has kicked...
Almost the entire time I have shot with Fuji, I have mainly used Capture One for my raw processing/editing. At one point even leaving Photoshop for Affinity Photo. This was due to C1 handling the Fuji files much better than LR. And on my editing computer, C1 ran faster. Some time in the last...
At the end of the Single In April, I found myself in a photography slump. For the first time I can think of. My thoughts are that several factors contributed. For one, I rearranged my whole kit with zooms to have the flexibility for starting in home portraits and head shots. With said kit also...
Since the COVID19 pandemic, my local sports shooting has come to a standstill.
I've been lucky and still can get out and take pictures, but nothing that "needed" the power of the D500...so I've been shooting with the Df, Fuji and Olympus more.
Well, today I decided to stop neglecting the D500...
Well, call me foolish for buying an 11-year-old camera with a tiny sensor, but after years of admiring from a distance the photos which Wouter Brandsma, Josh White (aka jtinseoul) and occasionally Eric Kim have taken or used to take with this little Ricoh, I couldn't resist when I found one in...
While it may not be the best time to be able to get out for review purposes...I did the best I could.
Hope you all enjoy my review of the X100V.
Every now and again, I’ll just go off the deep end on a portrait and just let myself go crazy with the post processing.
this started out as an iPhone11 portrait mode shot and found its way through Snapseed, Hipstamatic Tintype.
just experimenting and having fun.
About 3 or 4 years ago I decided to get out of mirrorless and just use fixed lens cameras. I settled on a Sony RX10 III for versatility and a Fuji X100T for its style. This was driven largely by my developing Parkinson's Disease and the resulting clumsiness - a sound decision.
In the last...
Some of you may have remembered a few years back I started a personal project for myself called Sceene In Windows. This project allowed me to explore life and events that were either seen through a window or capturing the events of life with a window in the scene. That project ran for about 9...
Not that this is a deal breaker, I don't plan to shoot long very much at all. I have the 14-30 S and the 50 1.8 S and I can go with that for a while. Anyone else having issues with Tamron lenses. I have heard a few grumbles about incompatibility but maybe a firmware fix will do the trick. I...
