  1. Hello, i just made the fifth video in my introductory course to Darktable. It is a free opensource program that uses a scene referred workflow with a linear color space. The results promise to be of a higher quality than LR or C1 that both work in a display referred workflow.
  2. Hello, i started making some tutorials on the raw converter Darktable. These videos are for complete beginners. Two epidoses are online in English and in French. Many more are to come with some practical and theoretical content. Darktable works well with raf files and uses a scene referred linear workflow. Here is a link to the first video in English :
  3. Hello, inhave recently got into macro photography with flash and I am using a Godoy 860ii with a diffuser. I am in TTL/HSS mode on the flash. I often want to let a bit more ambient light in so I use the exposure compensation on the body at +1 for example and the flash compensation at -1... but I see no difference between this shot and the original at 0/0. Does anyone know how it works? Thanks. Nicolas
  4. I gave picktorial 3 a go this week with my x-t2 files. It has some great features but falls down on basic raw conversion. Read about it here : https://nwinspeare.com/2017/08/21/picktorial3/
  5. Thanks, I'll give those suggestions a look. Nicolas
  6. Hello, I work as a teacher and I'm looking for a bag I could carry all my stuff in but also the x-pro2 with the small XF23mmf2 lens. I miss so many opportunities on my daily commute! My current satchel type bag is around 35cm x 25cm x 12cm and is often very full. I need to carry quite a lot of paperwork (A4 size max). Any ideas ? I like messenger bags and use the Billingham Hadley pro and Ona Astoria regularly. Maybe I should get a second hand x100S or T and try and fit it in the front pocket of a bag, the 23mm is quite long... Thanks, Nicolas.

    Hello, I'm not a sport photographer by any means but I'd like to share a photo I took with the x-pro2. It is a photo taken in a small powerlifting competition in Horncastle (UK). Any comments are welcome!
  8. Hello, I recently sold my trusty x100T and bought an x-pro2. The arrival of the new 23mmf/2 lens explains why I made the jump. They are both admittedly two different beasts. I compared the image quality between the x-trans II and the x-trans III sensors. You can read about it here : https://nwinspeare.com/2016/09/09/upgrade-from-x100t-to-x-pro-2-is-it-for-the-image-quality/ Leave comments and questions and the end of the article, I'll try to respond quicky. Thanks, Nicolas.
  9. Sounds like a lot of hassle... The hood is essential if there is no uv filter.
  10. Thanks milandro! I get the idea about not using a uv filter. No problem. Tell me if I'm wrong : If I use the lens hood, I need to use the adaptor ring and stick the hood on that. So when I want to fit an extra lens on top, I remove the hood and the apadptor ring and screw the lens on. That right?
  11. A couple of thoughts: 1) The x100T doesn't have a flippy screen. That is a major difference with the x-t10 + 23mm 2) The X100t is more discrete and less intimidating than an x-body with the 23mm and the huge lens hood. Fab for getting intimate with subjects. 3) Having 2 bodies is great. A 23mm and a 56mm are going to cover over 90% of your needs at a wedding (and most of the time elsewhere). Swapping bodies without changing lens is very comfortable and you will miss less shots. 4) The 23mm f/1.4 is a better lens than the 23mm on the x100t apart from the close fox using distance where the x100t is very soft wide open... And it is probably cheaper in the long run to separate lens purchases from body purchases. Hope this helps! Nicolas
  12. So I'd need to remove the uv filter to avoid screwing it on and off? https://www.instagram.com/nwinspeare/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/nwinspeare/
  13. Hello, I owned a x100T once upon a time and sold it. Bad decision! Ever since I have missed it... I'm in the market for another one but I'm also interested in the wide angle conversion lens. Before, I had the Fuji lens hood and a uv filter on the lens and I also used the seven5 filter system on occasion. How would this work with the adapted lens? Thanks for any advice, Nicolas https://www.instagram.com/nwinspeare/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/nwinspeare/
