Re: Itís all Greek to me!

Russian did import a few letters from Greek to augment the earlier Cyrillic alphabet. I'm not sure exactly which ones, but the modern Russian F, G and P certainly look similar to their Greek...

Re: Itís all Greek to me!

Yup, ditto.

I'm not very surprised that they didn't translate E-PL10 into Russian, but I am a bit surprised that they didn't even try to put Olympus into cyrillic script - Олимгус (or possibly...

Re: Itís all Greek to me!

Are you sure it's Greek Paul? I'm pretty sure mine is in Russian. I started Russian evening classes this term and I wondered if I had ticked the wrong language box by mistake or got a rogue cookie -...

Re: Mmmm beer. [well Larger actually}

Nice one Ian. I'm not sure what the relationship is between Carlsberg and beer though :)

Did you do much to gee up the colours? I know the E-1 colours are widely admired and the low sun at this...

Re: October 2019 Photo Challenge: Beer

Well done to all the entrants, and thanks for the votes. Mark, I think you have a typo where you have only credited Tram and Iain with 2 votes apiece - I think it should be 6.

Of course the real...

Re: Warning Latest Photoshop/Lightroom CC Updates

I eventually got them all updated OK - PS took several goes, I presume the Adobe servers were working overtime when I tried. As far as I can see most things are working OK, but it looks as though the...

Re: Warning Latest Photoshop/Lightroom CC Updates

Bridge doesn't do that for me, Steve. Like you, I have a custom workspace set up. When I started Bridge the first time after the upgrade, it had "essentials" active, but I just selected my own and...

Re: Warning Latest Photoshop/Lightroom CC Updates

I haven't updated yet, but I'll take a wild guess:

PS 20.0.7 and PS 2019 are the same thing masquerading under 2 different names. Ditto PS 21.0.0 and PS 2020, and similar for the Bridges. (My...

Re: NASA Retinex Image Processing.

That's a good way to keep it looking current, Wally!

Sorry Jim, my post looks a bit snarky and I didn't mean it to. It's always good to see the interesting things that other people have found.

Re: Warning Latest Photoshop/Lightroom CC Updates

Thanks for the offer but don't worry about it. They screwed up the print dialogue pretty badly several releases ago and it wasn't fixed last time I checked. I'll have a look once I've updated.

Re: Warning Latest Photoshop/Lightroom CC Updates

Thanks Dave for the warnings. I just tried updating Camera Raw and it's taking ages, I think all the world is downloading the updates at the moment so I'll leave it a day or two.

Re: NASA Retinex Image Processing.

Well the original press release on the site is dated 2001.....

From the examples I've seen I don't think you would need to be all that clever with Photoshop, a bit of top & tail on the tone and...

Re: E-M1 ii with 4/3rds lenses

Some time ago I got an EC-20 from Ian here - ex-hire stock but it was in such good nick that I wonder if it had ever been used. I stuck it on the lovely 4/3 150mm f/2 and tried it for rugby on the...

Re: Microsoft Codec

They probably aren't, particularly among cameras that share a sensor. However, there will be a field in the metadata which (very usefully) says which body it came from, and raw processors will check...
