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: 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: House on the Hill

I like the dark treatment - very atmospheric. And cold :)

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I have started a new thread in this same m43 sub-forum (as Ian hasn't set one up for the E-M1X yet) so that anyone who goes and gets their grubby mitts on one at a demo session can give feedback on...

Re: The inner sanctum

Apart from the little bit of sky it is virtually monochrome! But I like the way the blue of the sky complements the yellowy shades of the structure, and we would lose that if it were converted.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I'm a bit conflicted about it and am looking forward to seeing what it will really deliver. Even with the E-M1 Mk II and f/2.8 lenses I still get problems in low light with sport at this time of...

Re: Worth a look

Thanks BT. I knew they existed and have seen the ones near Dover on TV (probably in a Portillo Railway Journeys prograame) but didn't know there were so many.

Re: Anyone print A3 ?

I ave no experience of Permajet profiling, but the Fotospeed system is pretty simple and I imagine Perjet's will be similar. You download a package from their website which contains a standard chart...

Re: Weirdest SALE

Well done!

I think I tried Silverfast when I first got the V750, and didn't like it. Probably more down to the interface than anything functional, but I find that the standard Epson Scan utility...

Re: Weirdest SALE

Just out of curiosity I did a trawl for used Coolscan V and found some on eBay for around 500 - which is about what I paid for mine new 20+ years ago.

I've just done some Googling for getting...

Re: Weirdest SALE

We're drifting a bit off-topic here, but....

I have a Nikon Coolscan V (aka LS-50) which I believe uses the same driver as the LS-9000. I have it working quite happily on Windows 10 64-bit, and...

Re: Nesting

Wrong way round, Mark.

EC-14 and EC-20 are for "big 4/3" lenses - in your link it gives as an exmaple the 300mm f/2.8 which is only available in 4/3, not Micro 4/3.

The MC-14 is the currently...

Re: Olympus 35RC

I would think that if you already have one of those magical little Rolleis Steve then the 35RC/D wouldn't offer too much extra. Apart from being nice to have, of course :)

And I've just noticed...

Re: Olympus 35RC

It was the first camera that I bought for myself (for about 50 quid in 1874 if memory serves) and I still think it is lovely. I don't recall having had problems with focus or the rangefinder, and I...

Belated thanks, David, for the link to the videos which I have finally had time to watch.

Re: Its Coming

Gosh, that awakened a distant memory. But until I read the Wiki entry I hadn't realised how distant - the film was made in 1976 and i think the original case was in 1974:

Re: 3, 2, 1 or none at all?

1st shot, with 3 ducks, for me - but I would lop off (most of) the dark area at the top left.

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 MSC R Lens
