    The Fifa World Cup 2010 Thread

    I am sure Spain had two or three players more on the field, but I could not count - they moved too fast :wink: But hey, although Spain deserved to win, I think the championship would have been a lot more boring without that young German team. So now let's see how good or bad the Dutch team...

    The Fifa World Cup 2010 Thread

    That is going to be a tight game. I think Spain is one of, if not the best team at that Championship. But I would also have said that Argentina is one of the best teams. Now look what happened to them. At least it is fun to watch the German team. ciao Ruediger

    The Fifa World Cup 2010 Thread

    Oranje boven! That was a great game and The Netherlands deserved to win. Brazil was too lazy after their goal and the Dutch showed that they wanted to win in a very impressive way. There are two kind of teams in that championship the one who want to win and the ones who do not want to loose...

    Well, I think it would not be the first time that the French team would fly home without even one goal. :wink: Cheers Ruediger

    The Fifa World Cup 2010 Thread

    No, not really. They stood good in their defense, but they had only two good moments in front of the spanish goal. One resulted in a goal which I would say was more of an accident. Normally I am with the underdog, but this time I feel sorry for Spain. :frown: Cheers Ruediger

    The Fifa World Cup 2010 Thread

    I think we can not say much so far. What we saw was mainly teams with fear about loosing the first match and that made most of the matches tie games. The matches were dominated by avoiding counter goals instead of being dominated by going for goals. So what I missed is teams going risk from the...

    CS5 - Black Magic

    No, without question, they did a good job. But when looking at images, I more and more think about: Is it still photography or is it computer graphics and Adobe is going to push that edge more and more to the computer graphics side. A good image is a good image, no doubt, but in the future do...

    CS5 - Black Magic

    So that is a really impressive example, also if you take into account how easy that might be. But what I see is that not only the program is content aware, but also the photographer has to be content aware and do some work on the replaced areas as you can obviously see that there are repeating...

    I think the English team will do very well ... as long as they do not end in a penalty shoot-out :wink: I am not so sure about the German team. They usually do very well in these tournaments but this time the German team is a pretty young team, so we will see how that goes. I would think...

    Yes, I saw a video of this somewhere. It is cool. But I think that is more for people who live in the post-visualisation world. I tend to still stick to the pre-visualisation world :wink: Cheers Ruediger

    Lightroom 3 available

    There is an enfuse plug-in for Lightroom, you may have a look at this. I do not have the link to it here, but a google search for 'lightroom plugin enfuse' should do. Since I use Lightroom 2 I only start Photoshop when I have to scan some of my darkroom prints. I do not think this will change...

    Lightroom 3 Beta - 30th June expires

    Hi Bill, Maybe some words about box and download versions, upgrade and platform issues. There is no upgrade accross platforms for Lightroom. And that is simply because your serial number is valid for the Windows and the Mac version. I bought Lightroom 1.x as a box and I had it installed...

    Lightroom 3 available

    I did some testing with LR 3beta and upgraded to LR3 today. The import module got an improvement. The new noise filtering module gives very good results for high ISO images without ending in a smear festivity. And I also like to be able to add vignetting AFTER a crop. And then there are a...

    Panasonic 20mm/1.7 noise and other questions

    As right as the calculations about using a stabilized lens compared to a non stabilized but faster lens are, gaining shorter exposure times for hand holding is the least I am after when opening up the 1.7/20mm. What I want to have shallow depth of field and image stabilization does not give this...

    DPR on software lens distortion correction.

    For me it is the other way around. Lightroom does distortion correction for Panasonic raw files which contain correction parameters for Panasonic lenses. It is the raw converter coming with the Panasonics which does not use these parameters embedded in the raw file. So I will not stick with the...

    How do you like your Panasonic Lumix 20mm f/1.7 lens?

    No matter how good it is on an Olympus camera, it is the lens mounted most of the time on my G1. And I like it. Cheers Ruediger

    Questions regarding G1 with 14-45 lens

    Yes it is correct, Panasonic does some corrections of lens errors in the jpgs and also stores parameters in the raw files so that the raws can be corrected in the raw converter (if the converter takes the stored data into account). Well, that being said, it has nothing to do with the effects...

    Nikkor 80-400mm

    I think the G1 (or any other mFT camera) and the 80-400 build a good team. I do not own that lens, but was able to use one of a friend for a few images. I was amazed about how well that worked. Here is one example, the whole image and a 100% crop: I did not use a tripod for this...

    In the backyard ...

    Maybe I continue with a few more images. And since we were talking about bokeh and the 20mm lens, here is an example of the bokeh of an adapted lens, an old Tamron f4/80-200mm with a Nikon mount. The nice part about this lens, the near focus distance is only 90cm, which is pretty close for a...

    In the backyard ...

    Not that I am aware of. Part of that glow may come from the unsharp areas in the images and the special bokeh of the Panasonic 20mm lens. The other part might be the split toning with a warm color in the highlights and a more cold color in the shadows. It is a kind of a standard processing, so I...

    In the backyard ...

    Yes that can make a difference if you go for shallow depth of field. It is not only the difference of f1.7 and f2.8 but also between 20mm and 17mm and probably the minimal focus distance of the lens. I do not know how near you can go with the 17mm lens but all of the above images are done around...

    ImageMagick is also a good option for borders.

The borders I use for my images in this forum are all done with such scripts. It might be...

    Yes it is part of the ceiling. To the left is an oriel (if that is the right word.) Well it was my plan to produce a very minimalistic image and so I took it out of context. Unfortunately, being concentrated on what I wanted to archive, I forgot to take a more overview shot of the oriel. OTOH I...

    G1 and the street

    Yes, an EP-2 with its high resolution viewfinder is a really good option. Although scatterbrained as I am :redface:, I'm pretty sure that I would loose the viewfinder or at least have to seek in all my pockets to find it again because EP-2 with the viewfinder attached would also not fit nicely...

    G1 and the street

    Yes, there are hundreds of reasons to like a Pen more than a Panasonic. Some come from more esoteric reasons like it looks nicer or it feels better. Very important reasons in my opinion because the better it feels, the more fun it is using it. The more fun it is using it, the easier it is to get...

    G1 and the street

    Well compared to the EP-1 and the GF-1 the G1 is not as pocketable. But when I am out in the street, the camera is in my hand and not in my pocket, so for me the form has its advantages because of the grip. And that EVF comes in handy too. And in addition to that I can use it as I would use a...
