    Olympus 25mm PRO: Value proposition against FF

    Leighgion, My mileage is the same. I think however that we may be a tag overreacting just because Oly started releasing larger lenses. Don't forget - this is addition, not replacement. Minuscule collapsible zooms, tiny primes and cover lenses are still here to be used. The new macro looks to be...

    Sony A7II with IBIS from E-M1

    Don't forget the lens sizes. m43 will be my travel cam for the foreseeable future (imagine a full frame UW). But A7II sounds like a killer machine - adding IBIS to FF is huge. Who cares what lenses Sony will release with it? All legacy lenses should be usable!

    Assistance needed, tonight Ball - cocktail venue - lighting issue

    True, true... flashes can be disturbing. Which is NOT what want to do when I'm just a guy at a party - having fun is generally considered more important by guests than having their photos taken. Also I've been to a couple of weddings when Dave Barry's quote came to mind: "You'll want to have...

    New to adapted lenses - need more ideas

    I love MF lenses as well. Purple fringing can be a bit nagging. 57/1.4 and 90 macro should be excellent. I have a Hexanon 57/1.4 - a very good lens! I also like new FD lenses - whenever I had a chance to test them vs others they did well. I waited patiently on ebay 2-3 years ago to get some...

    Process on iPad? Or not...

    Tried to play yesterday with Filterstorm (after my test showed it indeed works with RAW file) and PhotoRaw Lite (free). PhotoRaw claims to use 16-bit processing. It takes time for Filterstorm to open the RAW file (message: "converting RAW"), but after that Filterstorm works much faster than...

    Process on iPad? Or not...

    I generally can keep iPad closer to my eyes than laptops so the difference is not that large. Also IMHO laptops in the same price range are 1) much larger/heavier, 2) don't have great screens either. I'm don't want to take a $1700 15" laptop with me on the trips. Second, and one of the reason I...

    Alrighty then, made a raw shot set to monochrome: - imported image looks B&W in the album - iPhoto opens B&W image - Snapseed opens B&W image - Filterstorm Neue opens a color image :thumbup: It's a pity Filterstorm screws up EXIF. Focal length is there but time stamp isn't

    Process on iPad? Or not...

    I liked some of the Snapseed's filters. iPhoto is more limiting but what it does, it does well and is very comfortable to use. Fiterstorm IMHO has the best UI, the masks are very nice to use and feature set is very good. If not for the bug I mentioned it would've been my favorite.

    Process on iPad? Or not...

    That's the problem, with iPad everything is hidden so I don't really know. The process starts with importing RAW file into iPad. Does it stay RAW? Is it converted to an intermediary format? I've no idea, but iPhoto does show it is a "RAW" image and all programs can open it. Also, Filterstorm...

    Hi, Although the Lightroom for PC is my primary processing tool I wondered if we a re far enough into XXI century to process photos on iPad. What I like - portability, nice screen close to my eyes, (assumingly) powerful controls - I'm a fan of touchscreen devices in general. We went to...

    Has anyone thought of moving to full frame?

    Right, that's kind of a big point. I think lenses define system more than a camera, and if consider FF it will be one that will let me use my Canon FD lenses. For "on the go" :43: will always tramp whatever other systems can throw at us IMHO, because of such a great sensor size / lens size...

    I'm torn between B&W and Color.

    I like them both too :smile: What the effect of color is, imho, is that B&W photo is a photo of the couple, the color one is about the girl. But both are good and different enough to keep them, again, imho.

    75/1.8 might be a Sigma?

    Nik plugins don't open basically. I tried it on SilverEfex and HDR Efex. With HDR LR starts processing the photos but gets stuck on what seems to be the last stage (I assume opening the plugin). I guess I should call Nik but don't really have any time so far...

    Wildlife weekend

    Nice! Are they from Vancouver Island? I like the one with a fawn but I would cropping it a bit tighter from the right and maybe bottom, and increase contrast. The grass on the left is in the way though. One thing I found works ok on overexposed grass is decreasing the lightness and saturation...

    what's wrong here? something is clearly wrong with these Oly 45mm pics

    I would say, yes and no. I think the last 4 are fine. I agree with you on the first 4, but I believe it's just a poor contrast, which is common for backlighted or poorly lighted shots and should be fixable in PP. Otherwise, I don't think there is a focusing problem per se, in the first shot...

Wasn't terribly pleased with telephoto OM lenses - 100/2.8 and 200/5 - expected a better bokeh from them, although otherwise they're good. Canon FDn lens - I think it...
