I have also just installed the trial version of ACDSEE Photo ultimate 18. I think the software looks promising and has lens profile although missing some lenses such as the 35mm macro. Overall I think the editing is less intuitive than lightroom but i have only started to play with it so will explore further.

Thanks. I now looked into the G85 and GX85 and watch a few youtube videos. I think the G85 is a bit bigger but the GX85 looks impressive.

Now the decision is even harder!

Seeing this is a thread for On1 Photo Raw, I hope I can ask a question here. I have been trialing Photoraw 2017.

On lightroom when i adjust the white and black, I press the shift key to see how much I can adjust. I cannot figure out how to do this in On1. Any tips please?

I am just catching up on this thread.

Apart from Capture One which is deem a worthy alternative to LR, which others are also worth looking into?

How about the latest ACDSEE? this looks promising although I am not sure if this supports the lens profile from pentax.

We don't have any lenses yet. Need to confirm which body to go for first. Wpresto mentioned the 12-100mm oly lens. I might also look into that one for an AIO travel lens.



Thanks. EM10 II is AUD739. the EM10 I with 14-42 kit lens is AUD619. The EM10 II is also still just tilt screen.



There are now a few recommendations for the EM10 II so I will look into this even closer. Thanks.

Thanks guys. We quite like the EM-10. Seem cheaper than the E-P5 also. The EM-10 screen does not swivel which is kinda disappointing.

Hi all, my wife has been using a Samsung NX Mini for travel and 6 months ago the lens go kaput. I am disappointed with Samsung and would never buy their camera again.

I would like to buy an M43 compact mirrorless for wifey and had wanted the olympus ones since these have body IS. but there are so many models to choose from and this is making our decision very difficult.

Some of the things we wanted:

1. Body stabilization
2. Tilt screen (if the screen can rotate in such a way that we can do selfie, and rotate in such an angle we can shoot at low level and high level that will be great)
3. compact

Would be wanting to pair this with a pancake wide angle lens and a standard zoom.

Recommendations appreciated.

Windows 10 kept resetting pictures file to photo app

Thanks Tony. I think I have tried something along that line previously but the settings not really stick.

I looked deeper into the link Digitalis indicated earlier and I found this app called "StopResettingMyApps". I downloaded that and it seems to work! fingers crossed. There is a new windows update tonight so tomorrow I should know if the settings work.

Here's the link in case anyone is interested -> Stop resetting my apps

Thanks Digitalis. I will try the link that you posted. I have edited the registry before using some hacks someone else posted but it does not stick long term. Maybe windows updates which come every now and then breaks the thing.

I will try again.

Hi guys, I have had faststone viewer installed as the preferred app to view photos quickly and determine which ones i can delete immediately before importing to lightroom. Windows 10 kept resetting the ,jpg, .png, etc association to the photos app. Very frustrating. I google and tried all the recommended fix but while it works for a while, the next reboot the whole thing start over again.

Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Wow. Well done. It is amazing that you can get such a sharp pic without focus peaking. Did you try to pixel peel to see if it is really "sharp"?

How to batch move photos in lightroom from folder "old" to "new"?

Thanks. I guess what I need to do is to select "update folder location" and select the folder where i want to move to? It says "the selected folder or one of its sub folders is already in lightroom. Do u want to combine these folders?" which is weird...because I can confirm that there are no such folders in there....

How to batch move photos in lightroom from folder "old" to "new"?

Hi,

All my photos are currently located on the NAS in its own folder, for simplicity sake, let's call the root folder "old". There are many sub-folders (named based on the YYYY.MM.DD convention) in this root folder.

I want to move these photos to my local hard drive on the PC, and preserving the directory structure, to a new folder. for simplicity call this "new".

I know how to move individual folders from within Lightroom from one location to another...but I can't figure out to move a whole bunch of sub-folders at one go...could someone please help?

Thanks

Now watched that youtube video.

If Lightroom is not going to make much use of the GPU, what would you guys think of just using the integrated graphics on the motherboard to all the displays? I wanted to have up to 3 displays and some motherboards apparently can do it.

I thought if the GPU is not going to be useful, why spend that money at all?

I have had quick delivery from CRK in the past and things I ordered are all shipped and received about 1-2 days later.....and I guess I am taking things for granted.

I ordered a Q battery from CRK on 10th March and it is my fault that I ordered the battery this late considering that I need it for an overseas trip on the 20th March....but it appears that they have factory warehouse to sort out and there is a delay. the stock is there. just the order status remain "ready for picking" till today. Wife rang CRK today on my behalf and was told that shipment may get delayed.

And I might not get the battery in time for my trip. :(

It is meant to be a belt pack for the Thinktank belt system but can also be adapted to fit normal belts for the pants.

Hi Krazykat, yes...the lens hood for the 02 does vignette at its widest end and yes I am also thinking of replacing it but haven't get around doing so.
