Photography banter | Questions | Halp |
Hey gaiz, i know there are a few people who frequent here who have a whole heap more to say, and as most people have said, it's a little bit of a different type of person in this part of ITM.
So i propose a photography nothing thread.


Mods, lock if you really feel the need.
New thread once this = 3000 posts

We've tried this before, it failed and wasn't allowed if I remember correctly.

shouldn't be any heavier than the old version, it's actually probably marginally lighter.

edit - new 1490g, old 1570g. so it's 80g lighter

some mtf's of new vs old. 200mm @ f/2.8 is over 90% sharp until over 6mm from centre of frame. old version never even hits 90% and dips very rapidly at the corners. corner contrast also stays strong and doesn't dip

new



old

stop it. stop it. stop it.

Making me want it more and more. (the lens, that is)

Heard there is a bit of a price premium over the old lens though :/

Hmm, I've just realised, that my ex installed Aperture on my laptop nearly a year ago (for editing his photos whilst travelling), and despite that, I've still been using iPhoto for all my photos. Although I'm not sure if I'll be able to make the kinds of adjustments I've done on RAW with the JPEGs off my Ixus.

Couldn't think of anywhere else to post this...

From Wikipedia: "Like a photographic negative, a raw digital image may have a wider dynamic range or color gamut than the eventual final image format, and it preserves most of the information of the captured image. Raw image formats' purpose is to save with minimum loss of information the data that are obtained from the sensor, and the conditions surrounding the capturing of the image (the metadata)."

I.e. there are some types of adjustments you can only do properly with a RAW image, not with a JPEG that has already had processing applied by the camera. I think.

del you're right you get more control with a raw file, but you can still do a lot of touching up to jpegs.

check this set from orbital on tuesday. from my ixus 850is
http://www.flickr.com/photos/nismor3...7623496608406/

i still processed them in lightroom. Added contrast, saturation & vibrance. If you saw the originals you'd definitely notice a lot of difference. They didn't look anywhere near as good
