Anyone actually using SILKYPIX?

Just checked the latest version of LR Classic on my another computer. You are right! Finally it doesn’t touch/change after its catalogue process! Great to see that wasn’t an issue at all! [emoji7]

About FPV, I used to check embed ICC on RAW files as reference software. In this case on this topic I mentioned for control the file to see the difference if there is (to make a kind of before & after session). There is nothing about JPG preview with that. It only shows if you take DNG+ (w JPG) or you put a JPG file named as same as DNG file in the same folder.

Thank you!

Hmm... I think your information might be a little out of date.

:)

About LR. With the K-1 at least, importing a RAW dng shot from the K-1 will offer you 5 camera matching profiles, Portrait, Landscape, Bright, Natural and Vibrant (I think). The other Custom Image profiles on the camera (such as mono and Film Reversal) are not accessible. The default for RAW files is for LR to apply Adobe Colour as the colour profile, and its actually quite nice, far from muted anyway, but you can change that anyway as I mention above.

Can you check your imported RAW files with another "viewer" after importing to LR. I am not talking about opening the file again in LR. I point that LR "removes 'embed' color profile". Of course if you open it in LR again you can get/apply those its 5 profile presets.

Fast Picture Viewer (or Faststone Image Viewer) show a Jpg preview of the RAW file, I'm not sure exactly what you're saying here and how this is relevant to SP?

The relation is that checking the "embed color profile". Is it still embed or not after LR; as I mentioned above. Not talking about JPG preview. (It doesn't show that either.) ICC profile.

Here you can see the screenshot of "FastPictureViewer" preview:



and here is another sc of the same file after LR with the same software:





I thought SP did support pixelshift for motion correction? DCU is not the best option for those files, numerous sites have proven that RawTherapee is better for handling Pixelshifted files, and my own findings confirm that to be true.

No it did not. Did those numerous sites complain about some strange pixelation issue?

DR? You mean Dynamic Range? Are you suggesting you can get even greater shadow and highlight recovery from SP than LR?

Yes I mean Dynamic Range. SP is better.

Thanks.

Cheers

Silkypix and PENTAX Digital Camera Utility (DCU) both developed by Ichikawa Soft Laboratory Co.,Ltd.

DCU is PENTAX’s very own PP solution and has all abilities and knowledge such as company’s color science etc. (So it means Ichikawa has all of those data.)

DCU works like LR in somehow and it makes it kind of slow especially on browser mode. (Better to switch it to laboratory mode. I mean if you have TBs of photo archive.)

LR is quite popular but it kills the color characteristics of PENTAX on RAWs. When it adds photos to its catalog, removes “embed color profile” from files. So you get well-cataloged “muted RAW” files at the end. (That’s why quite a many people thinks “Camera brand doesn’t really matter actually; because RAW is RAW and suppose to be the same at the end; you will fix on PP anyway...”. Big mistake.)

(You can see the difference with an another software called “Fast Picture Viewer”. Just open an already cataloged file by LR and another from directly memory card. So you will see the difference, what do you lose actually by using LR. I could show this with printscreen shots but I never install LR on my system.)

Silkypix keeps all adjustments on tiny xml files for each photo as separate files. So doesn’t take some GBs on HDD/SSD like others does.

Silkypix doesn’t support “Pixel Shift Resolution”. DCU is the best option to handle those files. Also DCU can export PEFs to DNG.

LR has some “good” stuff like one-click auto CA/purple fringing remove etc. but every easy solution comes with the price. (You never get 100% best result.) You can make it better on Silkypix or on PS later.

About DR... There is nothing can compete with the Silkypix...

Best!

Thank you very much my friend! :)

I catch this beauty quite close to my home where I live in Sweden, Linköping. Every year or every 2nd year they come and visit us early spring and stay for a while depending on rodent population around the lake (Lake Roxen). They are not so common, last two years for example not so many people could get a chance to see or photograph them in the same area. (I encountered once. Have some shots but not BIF.)

I never use a hide because I don't like to be nailed/caged on a point somewhere in field. I need to be able to move, especially when I take BIF shots. So I don't use a tripod either such times. I have various camouflage clothes like ghillie suits etc. (Nowadays I use those microlight 3D leaf camouflage suits [Realtree Max camo products], gloves, head mask etc. and I found much much more comfortable than a ghillie.)

Cheers!

Thank you very much for your kind words! I don't use fill flash since 2011 actually. I'm just chasing the best light moment. :) Best!
