    We lost our good boy tonight

    So sorry to hear. Our dog is approaching 14 and I know the day is not too distant when the decision will need to be made, just as with the last three dogs. I've known the pain, too, but I can't imagine not re-upping with another dog.

    Spot on sensor - Where?

    As far as the image projected by the lens goes, what's up is down, what's right is left. The spot on the viewed image is at 8 o'clock. The image has been rotated 180 degrees for viewing. This means that, as you look at the back of the camera, the spot is being projected at 2 o'clock - 180...

    Post-Processing Challenge #526 - Winners Announced

    First, I have to acknowledge that the task I set may have seemed entirely unfair. Kind'a stupid, even. Divining the “correct” exposure parameters for a flat wall decorated in spray can colors is just about a fool’s errand. Nuances of color balance easily get lost in the general chaos. Where...

    Lately, my wife and I have been spending a bit of time visiting our newest (third) grandkid in Washington D.C. This is a far more urban environment than we are used to. Aside from the superb museums that line the National Mall, there is a lot of art to be found elsewhere. We pass this example...

    Oooops… That is to say, many thanks, @11GTCS for the license to go wild. I had always wanted to putter around with 5-way symmetry and blend modes. It was a learning experience for me, that's for sure. And thanks to every other entrant for a lively thread. I will just say that it was a lucky...

    Who is use high res mode?

    So, does it work? It being a dull day, I did a simple experiment to find out. Also to see if I could get both the dog's nose and eyes sharp in the same shot. I used my particularly placid antique bronze bulldog, a Pen-F mounted on a tripod and both the O30 and O60 macro lenses. The distance...

    Who is use high res mode?

    I've been shooting Hi-Res since I bought the E-M5 II in the month it came out. Not a lot, mind you, but the last instance was last week for a sunset landscape. The possible increase of DoF intrigued me enough to spend ten minutes with a DoF calculator (at cambridgeincolour) running scenarios...

    Using a Circular polarizer on an E-M5 III

    Turn off Live View Boost and S-OVF. They will both confound the EVF and mask the effect. Once the viewfinder is WYSIWYG, you will see the changes properly rendered.

    Recommendations for a new photo editing computer (+ info on system performance)

    Be careful of the GPU. If you have any wish to use apps such as the Topaz AI crowd, they do poorly with underpowered (read 4gb or under) GPUs. I expect others will push processing onto the GPU, as well. You may already have seen this article regarding iMacs and photo processing.

    E-M5 III custom settings is baffling...Help?

    Can you first set the Mode Dial to C and only then recall C2 with the menu? If C2 becomes active, are you then restored to your everyday settings when you rotate the Mode dial back to its previous setting? What settings do you get if you then return the Mode Dial to C?

    Traveling with a lute to a 19th c. inn (which has settled into a state in which the concepts of plumb and level are merely just so many unmet desiderata) that hosts a long-running jazz club. Can you say cognitive dissonance? ;) Updated the photo. Some of the noise reduction bugged me.

    Quite right! It seems to be sticky, too. Thinking there might be a similar drop-down box in Export preferences, I investigated. There is, but the only two choices are None and Copyright and Contact Info

    Exifs not showing under my photos anymore.

    I suspect the problem lies with PSE. The lens data is missing from the file. It should be in a section marked Exif Auxiliary Properties and that section is missing. I know that the two Export function in Photoshop (Export As… and Save For Web (Legacy)) strip most of the Exif info, not only...

    Share 25mm focal length photos in nature

    The 50mm FOV is what a lot of us grew up with so, to us, it might seem a bit meh, been there, done that. As I recall, the main selling point seemed to be that its FOV closely matched that of human vision. But it is useful for: fitting neatly within a polarizing filter's useful envelope...

    Which body for some macro work?

    The remark about in-body focus stacking leaves open the question whether focus bracketing is a desired feature. If it is, then be careful in your choice. Few of the Pens have it (E-PL9 and Pen-F only, I believe). It was not included in the E-M5 I and IIRC only arrived in the E-M5 II as a...

    Showcase Olympus 300mm f/4 PRO

    I experienced quite a bit of variety with the local hawks this weekend. Saturday was gloomy so, I reasoned, there would be no thermals and I'd be more likely to encounter perched birds than otherwise. Since it was gloomy, I used the MC-14 for the extra light and hoped that I would be able to...

    For me, the story is that it's high and it's remote. The crop does that for me. Initial exposure tweaks in Adobe Camera Raw, trying to stay conservative and understated. Some brushwork to very modestly promote a few locales, perhaps too subliminal but the hope is that the eye will be drawn to...

    Apple Photos - how do I break free?

    The time of original capture is retained and shown on the line headed Content Created (4th line down in Finder in Mojave). I know for certain that Lightroom ignores the Created and Modified lines and accurately records the original as Date Time Original, Digitized, etc. It should work.

    I just found the raw and opened it in Adobe Camera Raw. I noticed that the file had some headroom before highlight clipping, but some of this must be attributable to ACR's conservative highlight treatment. It appears that the subtle pattern seen on the surface of the underside of the building...
