Don't just repeat your comment like I never even said anything. Rude.
Have you got anything to contribute other than wishful thinking / conspiracy theory? It was pretty clear in the reports and interviews with Olympus at the time of the M1X, that they said the IBIS hardware had to improve over...
So there is nothing more to it than try and adjust aperture and shutter speed instead of, last resort, raising ISO? Pretty simple, and well known.
I say "well known" because almost everyone knows that raising ISO leads to more noise, so don't do it unless you have to. This is so widely known...
Motion blur is so easy to handle in a photo editor that I don't think it's a big issue. Open the high-res image (made from ORF) as a layer over the standard-res image (made from ORI) as a layer and 'paint out' the artefacts, revealing normal-res in the layer below. After all, scene elements in...
Familiar friend indeed. With a long history of pushing pseudo-science in the name of an agenda that says that complex lenses are incapable of 3D-like rendering compared to certain simpler, usually older, especially but not only Leica, lenses.
11 months after his 2017 Leica Look article, he was...
Mine is a mid-2012 Retina, with the dedicated GPU unsupported since Apple and Nvidia parted ways -- 2 years ago? So, maybe it's slower than yours!
I would like it to be faster, but your solution seems much worse than my problem. :)
...and that post of mine "in the middle of the conversation" says, if I may quote myself, "What you (wjiang) are saying has no impact on the observations that provoked this thread." ...which is a clear reference to my OP!
I can see now why you misinterpreted me -- you seem to have trouble...
Perhaps re-read my OP before misinterpreting it so thoroughly. Third-to-last line.
I am discussing trends and disproportionate ratios. Not judging certain styles as good or bad.
And for the same reason, the individual samples from Art that have been used in this thread don't add much.
Both the above image examples show dominant soft transitions and muted tones, BTW.
I would love to see a higher proportion of images posted with those qualities.
The fact that there is interpretation is not an issue: interpretation itself is always welcome and encouraged. It is the manner of...
If natural-like processing is described as "flat, dull and boring", why don't I look out over the fields and cities and feel let-down (by reality)?
OTOH if "flat/dull/boringly natural" is now a common sentiment, that might suggest that, on average, we are becoming conditioned by the images we...
It also crossed my mind, regarding the Challenges, that a self-reinforcing mechanism could be happening, where a Turbo Processed image gets picked as best, then that person (who has already demonstrated a liking for it) gets to be the next judge, so, odds are in favour of another Turbo Processed...
am I imagining it, or is there a trend on this site to post images that have been processed with the Heavy Duty Turbo button firmly pressed? Not everyone, of course, but quite a lot?
This is what I am greeted with when I open the New Media tab:
To my eye, that has a bias in favour of...
Remind me again --- why don't I need OpenCL to use DT on my MacBook, but you do need it for yours?
Because I am just having zero issues with DT and MacOS.
I'm probably just a dumb ignorant non-PC person compared to you guys, but I'm curious.
Well, this was interesting. I see the camera was set to Cloudy WB, resulting in a golden tone that invited bright interpretations, which was not what I wanted to do.
I suspect the natural lighting was blue-hour-ish from the sky overhead, so I went for a more sombre look, as if the declining...
The pipeline processing order, for each individual image, is shown in the left-most tab in the RH column (Darkroom module), which looks like a power button symbol.
With DT3 I am particularly enjoying the new theme called Grey, which the developers are at pains to stress will stop your developed...
Thanks for this.
Although I prefer EVF over OVF, I do have difficulty with my E-M5 II EVF in areas of deep shadow, where I cannot see any detail in the shadow, and this can sometimes get in the way of framing. I tried to adjust the EVF settings to low contrast, so I had a bit more visible...
No, its a bashing campaign (same thing repeated too many times) by someone who I don't need in this thread, which is about E-M5 III advantages.
Battery life during video as per JEITA test standard, is 60 minutes and the E-M5 II is 80 minutes, so it is 3/4 the life of the previous model. But it...
Thanks Michael. Looks like the battery power is the equal of my E-M5 II and the original E-M1.
That means it is not especially weak and the equal of other Oly bodies of the same size. Not a reason to avoid the camera IMHO.
No match for the E-M1 II but that is a bigger and heavier body, and we...
Yes, I understand the relative pros for the E-M1 II. I want to dedicate this thread to the relative pros for the new E-M5 III other than size and weight.
I am keeping a tally at the top of the thread.
See if you can get confirmation from that reviewer whether he actually stopped because video...
It's a bit smaller and lighter. Got it.
But does it have any advantages at all in terms of features or specifications?
[edit: answers that have come to light so far in this thread:-
120 fps video
"Custom AF" option
OLED EVF wih longer eye sight distance
I used the 100-300 at 100mm and f/4 to get this photo, last week, of a 110 year old hand-painted pressure gauge, found on board a wooden-hulled paddle river steamboat that was slapping its way down the river at half speed.
I think you are upset because you weren't ready for it.
Photographers at events, or in public in general, need to be fully prepared and half expecting that sort of thing to happen. If you are prepared, then you can deal with it calmly, and patiently, while holding your line. Not only will you...
