To coincide with the release of Affinity Photo 1.7, Serif have released a large number of new tutorial videos, presented by the excellent James Ritson. They are quite short and well focussed.

Re: Advice on lenses

I have the 12-50 (which was a kit lens) and the 12-40 pro. The 12-50 is a pretty good lens and I often use it on a Pen F as it is small and light. The 40-150 is great value for money and again...

Re: Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

Just installed the 64 bit version on Windows 10 without issues and it looks quite decent. It certainly seems much more user friendly than OV3. Yes, there is a manual!

Re: What programs for panorama stitching Mk II photos?

Affinity Photo will give you integrated panorama stitching, focus and exposure stacking, for less than 50. Cheaper than some of the stand-alone tools or Lightroom add-ins. I use mine in conjunction...

Re: It's Not Cricket!

The much revered W.G.Grace was a great cricketer and a renowned cheat.

Re: Affinity's raw processing

I think the problem is that raw images are dull and flat by nature. Raw engines apply some sort of pre-processing on import to make them more palatable. I haven't come across any apart from Affinity...

If it were mine I would just remove the white patches on the drifting wood which are very distracting.

Re: Corrugated iron - but not as we know it!

Not sure about Iceland, but a number of British companies exported flat pack corrugated iron buildings all over the world. John Lysaghts in Bristol was one of the biggest.

Re: Focus Bracketing

You can buy Affinity Photo for much less than $89. Hardly fair to describe it as "a PS knock off". It's a very serious piece of work.

Re: Laowa 7.5mm f2.0

I succumbed to a used 7-14 f2.8 a while ago. It's a lovely lens but big and heavy! I realised I would rarely want to carry it around and filters are a big issue.

Re: Amateur Photographer NR Software Survey

That's a great result, Andy. With modern software like DXO, the days of obsessing about differences in high ISO handling due to sensor size are effectively over.
