Re: Vintage Kit

I guess we must be of similar vintage as I started with a Garrard SP25 as well. Got fed up with it pretty quickly, I think it got replaced with another Garrard with a rather odd name like Module...

Re: Photoshop Ai enhanced RAW

If there is a difference, it looks very marginal to me and I wouldn't like to choose which one was "better". I had a little play with it on files from various cameras and didn't notice any worthwhile...

Re: Sad news about my favouriote airliner

Do they need special infrastructure at the airport to get the passengers (the "self-loading cargo" as Cabin Pressure had it) on and off the two decks at the same time? I imagine that could be quite a...

Re: Didn't see this coming..!!

Re: Night Views from Olympus Sydney balcony

I'm with Aussie Mark on this - the first shot works really well. It's not just a night shot, the composition fits together nicely and it has a great atmosphere.

Re: Correcting perspective

Thanks for trying it Steve. It has done the same thing as PS and LR - adjusted the horizontal lines as well as realigning the verticals so we have the same problem - it it were a photo of a building...

Re: E-M1X thoughts and excellent Dave Etchells video

I do. Not just the grip, the whole larger size of the body means that I can't hold it comfortably. I also wouldn't be able to fit it into the bags I use these days and would feel all those extra...

Re: Correcting perspective

Thanks for the comments. Derek, that's a useful comment about increasing the canvas size in PS. It always surprises me how much you seem to need.

The problem as I see it is that all the...

Correcting perspective

Prompted by Paul's (pdk42) series of photos of the Flatiron Building (thread here: http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=49588) and the discussion about comparison of the human eye to a camera...

Re: E-M1X preview sessions

I had a surprise opportunity for a fondle this aftie - Oly man Chris Booth turned up with one at LCE in Salisbury for a couple of hours so I dashed down to see it.

Re: Camera versus The Human Eye

Thanks for the link, Dave, it is an interesting topic.

I think that (unless I missed it of course) the author overlooked something very important, which is our understanding of perspective. I have...

Re: Wex Offer...!

If you are thinking of trading in for an E-M1X, some places are offering an extra 200. I think the offer must be from Oly rather than the vendors as I have seen it several times.

Re: New Flash system

The latest firmware updates for the m43 bodies say "Wireless radiowave commander FC-WR is now supported", which does suggest radio rather than optical communication. But of course if the description...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Re: Guess the iso.

Which raises an interesting question. Is it better to set the camera to, say, ISO 1600 and under-expose, or 3200 and over-expose with the same aperture and shutter speed?
