    Optimizing Posted Image Quality

    OK, Don, you didn't say you did it right. You'll probably get a similar result to what you usually get, it depends on what software you are using. If we speak about pixels we all know what we get, whatever software we use, every time. regards, Jonas

    Optimizing Posted Image Quality

    Hi, As we are talking about showing images on screen here your recipe is more or less useless. It is way better to say 800x600 pixels or 1200x900 pixels, for example. Then add that a reasonably size is about 200 or 300 kB (pick a suitable ratio of JPG compression), that sharpening should be the...

    Words/ No Words: Existing Light Portraits

    Brian, I'm not that experienced from other well polished and courteous forums. I have seen some of these W/NW threads but never really understood the point. Do you mind educating me a little? You, or somebody else of course, start a thread, labeling it Words/No Words and then there is mainly...

    Olympus wide-angles on Gf1/Gh1 : 9-18mm vs. m9-18mm

    I'm sorry for my sloppy language. Well, I read words written by different folks at forums. I try not to put to much weight to that but what I have read tells me that the old bigger design probably holds up better towards the edges and corners. To me that is important with an ultra wide lens (as...

    Olympus wide-angles on Gf1/Gh1 : 9-18mm vs. m9-18mm

    I thought it was the other way round? Maybe wishful thinking, I haven't tried the lenses at the same time but decided to keep my old Zuiko 9-18 as the M.Zuiko, from reports, isn't as good, from reports and reviews. It would be nice to see some direct comparisons. Maybe the differences are...

    canon mirrorless rumor

    Wohoo! I know, this is µ4/3 so it's like cursing in the church... But, I'm eagerly waiting for a FF LIVE camera and this is at least a step in the right direction. If true it's very cool. Jonas

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    I stumbled upon a Zeiss white paper the other day. I haven't read it earlier but my guess is that it has been around for some time. There is a paragraph on oval "circles" discussed earlier in this thread at page 31, and also a lot of other things of interest. I know this thread is old but it...

    Helping out a novice!

    OK, I feel better reading that... I hope you'll have the time to learning the camera controls before leaving and wish you a nice trip! From there it is practicing and learning from others. Not from me though, I'm mediocre at this but keep on because of the fun. One thing maybe, slightly off...

    Helping out a novice!

    Well, if you learned that in eight days I'll be happy to attend a PP seminar by you, maybe this fall or so? I have problems handling simple layers after years of intermittent training. But I vote for more than 1 second. Jonas

    Neon lights, shimmering neon lights...

    OK Gwendal, I guess that didn't help... For your second question, I can post this one just for fun: ©Jonas B, 2009. Mixed light, incl tubes and neon. Perhaps not very flattering. In general I try to avoid to to take images of people in neon light, or other sorts of tube light. When I do...

    Lightroom 3 available

    I upgraded from B2 to the final version of LR3. Now LR sometimes hangs when synchronizing folders... I'll go to the Adobe support pages to see if there is a workaround.

    Cosina Lens Production

    Hi, I have an APO-Telyt from that factory, absolutely not a Monday lens. But the Nokton is a Cosina lens, I think you are thinking of the Noctilux. But... hmm, me thinks they are made in Germany now. Jonas

    Neon lights, shimmering neon lights...

    Hi, Neon light is very bright, or even extremely bright - as we can see in your image... You have to expose a lot less and by doing so there will be nothing seen but neon tubes. So, the dynamic range o our sensors are exceeded, by a whole lot. There is no film or other sensor handling this...

    HELP! - Leica CL and Summicron-C f2/40mm lens

    Thank you Brian. I think that confirms most of everything said about the lens. I notice it is far from the sharpest ever, but sharp enough, OTOH it did better in that flare test than expected. For the bokeh, well, no surprises there. Jonas

    HELP! - Leica CL and Summicron-C f2/40mm lens

    Ah, but you know about opinions... Everybody but me seem to believe in this lens so you should probably count the votes and get rid of any buying remorse. If you like the images you have seen from the lens, well, then what more is there to do but try it out? regards, Jonas

    For those who like grainy B&W

    Hi Martin, Thank you for commenting. I'm happy i didn't step on your toes. And right back on you; if you haven't noticed any sharpening halos and I'm the only one mentioning them they are probably nothing to care about. That's just the same way I think about it. However, after having...

    HELP! - Leica CL and Summicron-C f2/40mm lens

    So, let's see if I can sum it up: The Summicron-C has a bit low contrast and harsh bokeh, it can be flary, the resolution abilities when paired with a high pixel density sensor are unknown but probably good enough and we don't know about possible smearing problems at corners and borders. I...

    For those who like grainy B&W

    Thank you Amin. Discussed and done with then. Personally I see no meaning in posting something and not getting constructive critique in return... But OK. I think I'll play it safe, visit the Straight talk group from time to time and not comment anything elsewhere. regards, Jonas

    For those who like grainy B&W

    Ah, I remember having seen a post about that group but then I never happened to stumble on to it. I had to search and think... and found it. Thank you. I hope nobody minds a few words on random images either. Jonas

    For those who like grainy B&W

    I like grainy, dirty and gritty B&W images. This series caught my eyes thanks to the diversity, and the images are also all a pleasure to look at. Grains and three grainy... I like them all, and #2-4 the best. The stair shadow image is very effective using the diagonal and with the direction...

    HELP! - Leica CL and Summicron-C f2/40mm lens

    If you have some special lust for a small Leica and that lens I see no reason not to buy it (unless the meter is faulty). If you would buy it mainly to get a 40mm lens for your µ4/3 I see no reason at all to do so. You would do better spending your money for a Nokton lens instead; the...

    Panasonic 20mm/1.7 noise and other questions

    For practical use there are mainly two sort of images; those static ones, and then those were things move around, like people and faces. In the first case it sometimes works with a floating sensor (although i bit unpredictable I think) compensating for camera shake. In the second case it...

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    To me this was an interesting thread with some explanations, speculations and conclusions (some both right and wrong, that's not bad) and with an interesting old Pen lens as starting point. But, less than 140 views and few attenders. It sure is fine being a happy snapper but it isn't wrong...

    Fast prime around 28-40mm

    I thought the consensus was that the Konica 40/1.8 is soft until stopped down to at least f/2.8 But thinking about it... that doesn't stop it from being a great performer. Yes, I just came here from a thread about theories and terminology... Cheers, Jonas

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    As I said, it is about terminology. To me the two images above are only loosely connected and the first one is a schematic showing different focal planes making for the differences in tangential and sagittal resolution. There you have the spoken wheel. The second one shows the Cat's Eye effect...

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    Laserguy, The circles becoming ovals can be seen also in top notch lenses, like the OM90/2 Macro, both on FF cameras and 4/3 cameras. For the most of the time the problem is never a problem. Sometimes it shows up and most people don't care. Here is an image from a series of images taken at...

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    No. I know the terminology can be a mine field and perhaps this has been described as astigmatism somewhere. To me astigmatism is associated with the "spoken wheel" and differences in tangential and sagittal resolution. Sometimes I have sen astigmatism used as a term for the typical gull...

    Bokeh Issues on the Pen F 38 mm f/1.8

    Swirl: What you see is normal for any lens with a small (or "normally" sized front element) and is an effect related to the Cat's Eye effect. As I understand it this is a result from "optical vignetting" (sometimes called "artificial vignetting") and it is present with most lenses, to different...

    what is NOT a native lens..

    This is a little off topic (maybe) but some thinks the rebadged CCTV Noktor is a native lens... In the lens review section 4/3 lenses are placed together with µ4/3 lenses while the Noktor hopefully will be sorted among adapted lenses. Nitpicking, I know. I agree about µ4/3 lenses being the...

    Do you print your photographs?

    That's the same way I think about this. That is also something I'll look into. With the CIS, what happens if you don't use the printer for say 3 or 4 weeks while away traveling? Again this 3880... Are there printer fan boys out there you mean... gosh. I'll read some 3880 reviiews...

    Do you print your photographs?

    Thank you. I just checked the Epson R1900 review at Vincent Oliver's place. It's obviously a capable printer but I won't once again buy anything using those small ink cartridges. They are annoying, and at least here in Sweden very expensive. I'll look around, I can live without the...

    Do you print your photographs?

    Canon... yes, they were good back when I bought the Epson and i guess they are good now. I like the Epson pigment ink images. What is your Canon pigment printer? I also profile some of the papers I use. I have then sent the prints to a "profiler" but for the future I would like to be able to...

    Do you print your photographs?

    I printed my keepers up until last month. At that point my many years old Epson R800 finally broke. That printer has costed me a fortune for the ink, and it has given me a lot of excellent prints in return. So, I'm in the market for a new printer. What do you recommend? I would like to have at...

    Showcase Contax 45mm f/2 G Planar

    Hi R, I have tried the Lens-workshop focusing ring type adapter but as I'm using a g1 it doesn't suits my fingers (due to the protruding flash house). So, have the 90/2.8 with that adapter up for sale hoping somebody with a GF or Pen camera would like to have it. I use the Kipon geared...
