Luminar 4

Like AggieDad above I had significant trouble with Luminar 3 and even after they released the first major update to the software I simply could not get the library to work. I eventually uninstalled the software and reverted back to the previous version. I downloaded the plug-in version (Luminar Flex) and use this as a plug-in to Lightroom and photoshop and really like the software and what it can do. I will almost certainly upgrade to Luminar 4 if the black Friday prices are good -- even if only the plug-in version works I think it is well worth it.

I've never used Luninar 3. But after watching all of the Luminar 4 YouTube videos, I pre-purchased Luminar 4. I'll get it next Monday (November 18th).

I look forward to giving it a try. I'm hopeful that the leading edge "A.I." in Luminar 4 and Topaz Gigapixel A.I. (already own & love) will completely replace my current Adobe "non-A.I." Lightroom/PhotoShop post processing workflow. From where I sit, A.I. is the future of post processing software. (Note that the A.I. in Luminar 4 is manually controlled and can be selectively applied with a brush for full control of the A.I.).

Couldn't agree more! Bought Luminar 3 at a discount and can hardly wait till Luminar 4 is released.

Very nice to meet another film shooter. Personally I dont bother with a meter for the Spotmatics. I often have a little digital point and shoot that I use as a light meter. Another thing to test out with this camera is the fast shutter speeds to make sure they work properly. The only way to be sure is to run a roll of film through it and make sure that the exposure is even across the entire frame.

All the best from a fellow Lower Mainland film photographer.

Welcome aboard!!

I still own the Spotmatic II I got new in the early 1970's. A few years ago I came across a person in Yellowstone that was using a Spotmatic. He too had purchased it new.

Benefit of Mirrorless cameras with EVF -- 'Seeing' in black and white

I can do this in live view on my K-3 and also on my phone, though there is usually no advantage to doing so even when I know in advance that I will do a monochrome treatment in post. The two photos below are good examples...

On this one ^ ^ ^ I noted the high-valued yellows and golds in contrast against the blue sky before even setting up. The color version has so-so impact, but post processing to take advantage of those points of contrast and glow made for a rather more interesting monochrome image. Using a "canned" monochrome viewfinder treatment would have been detrimental to the process.*

The area in the Mt. St. Helens blast zone is famously lacking in color and also famously rich in texture and topography. On this day, storms were brewing over the main Cascade Range to the east and those bright clouds along with the summit shroud provided a happy accent against the debris plain. This one was easy to visualize as monochrome, mostly because that is the palette of the place.

I should probably mention that I have been doing monochrome photography since the late 1960s and the option of "seeing" in tonal values comes as second nature. I always do a mental evaluation of the range of light, even when the intent is a full color capture.


* While having this option for the Nikon EVF, might be of limited usefulness to a monochrome digital noob, I am surprised that an experienced pro would call this feature out.
