Help me leave Lightroom and explore my fascination with ON1

I am currently weighing DxO, On1 and Capture 1 as my LR6 standalone replacement. All have tutorials available (with the advantage going to C1) and both will do what I want them to do. DxO is having a great bundle sale right now though. How does On1 handle cloning/ healing out things in a shot (like powerlines, for example)? Capture 1 is fantastic but I think it is overkill for what I do.

I am not into the subscription model of Adobe. Also, Capture 1 allows me to do LR style photo 'developing' as well as basic manipulation that would require me to use two different programs in Adobe.

Metered so that the land acted as a border between the sky and the reflection on the water at sunrise. I like the two different worlds feel to it.

Kodak Tri-X 400 or T-Max 400?

For messing around, Tri X has a lot more latitude and is more flexible. For taking photos of everything else, TMax is better.

Another This vs. That! A* 300/4 vs Tamron (60B) 300/ 2.8

Those are great shots and exactly what I am looking to get as results.



I regularly shoot with a Zeiss folding camera that is zone focus only. You have to run hyperfocal numbers and distance guesses to get a good photo. It is difficult but when you nail it, totally great experience. The DoF is really shallow.

Thats a great shot. I got a great deal on the A* and I could not get a straight answer from the seller of the Tamron as to the condition of the adapter and whether or not both filters were present. Devil you know over the devil you dont. The way the A* handles is pretty incredible. I will probably be shooting it somewhere around 4.5 or so a majority of the time. I will post up results when I get them.

Well, rather than risk the Tamron I went with a known quantity and picked up the A*. I have only used it on my old ist DS and what I saw impressed me. I am going to hopefully be shooting an old 53 Chevy truck soon so it will be put through a run of frames in my MX very soon.

Mirrorless camera advantages
Posted By derelict

No doubt, it comes down to personal preference. There is a 7-14/ 2.8 in M4/3 mount. It is not all that big. M4/3 is not the end all be all camera. It is just what I choose to shoot with as I prize size and compactness over some DoF or DR loss. Advantages of the system in terms of what it can do is far more important to me. I also shoot with a Pentax MX, one of the smallest 35mm cameras made. I do, however, believe that mirrorless is going to be where everyone goes.

Mirrorless camera advantages
Posted By derelict
Replies: 95

I do shoot RAW and only RAW. The thing is, with mirrorless, I can play with the shadows and highlights in the EVF adjusting the curves before taking the photo. Much better than shooting and hoping that you can recover some elements in PP. My argument has nothing to do with 'knowing what you are doing.' My argument is that mirrorless affords you the ability to see a much better approximation of the final product than a DSLR can and allows it to happen in the EVF as you are taking the photo. RAW can do many things but it cannot save a crappy photo.

As for birding and wildlife, what is the argument there? Requiring more batteries? Oh dear me! That 1/10 of a pound is going to be the difference! Oh please.

ANY modern camera is best for people who do not know what they are doing. There is no such thing as a bad camera anymore. All, in auto mode, take fantastic photos with meters that are pretty damn close to perfect. All that is left now is for people to bicker about things like having to carry an extra battery. If that is your sole reason for discounting a burgeoning, and possibly [the] future, market, then have at it. Just know that that reason is pretty weak. The OP asked for differences. Differences were given. Sure, shooting RAW can solve many things but the reality is the closer to vision you can make a photo, the less PP you have to do. If I can play with the curve ahead of time, in camera while taking the shot, I will know exactly what to do when I sit down and load the card into LR. When you can do that AND reduce a full frame camera body to the size of the APSC KP, those strike me as good things. Mirrorless is making strides and is the future. I do not think that Sony, Olympus, Sigma, Nikon, Canon, Fuji, Hasselblad would be investing in it so heavily if it were not. Pentax will eventually get there. Or not. If they do, and offer the features the others do as well, I will be back in the fold. Until then, I am a Pentax film shooter and an Olympus digital shooter. I really want a K7. I really also do not want to carry around a 2.25 lbs (without lens) body.

And as you operate your K1 in live view, you are consuming more battery life. What are the advantages of an OVF? It is not coverage as EVFs give 100%. It certainly is not that it bends reality as you will bend reality in PP all while looking at your frame in the digital space. It certainly is not some increase in shutter speed as the combination mechanical and electronic shutters on mirrorless are blindingly quick.
