  1. Why don't you give darktable a go. It is now a great raw developper and it is free.
  2. I tried Darktable around Christmas time and have now got quite far with it. It is more powerful than C1 and LR, the demosaicing is very good and it has all the tools I need. I haven’t opened anything else for a couple of weeks. The learning curve is quite steep though... and it is free. Save your money for lenses!
  3. I tried on1 photo raw but the film simulations are dreadful. It is a deal breaker for me.
  4. I use C1 in conjunction with photo mechanics. The DAM on C1 is not as good as LR.
  5. Yes , thanks for the honest replies. I find the idea attractive though in the short run. I think you are right though. It also takes away the pleasure of landscape photography in the long run too.
  6. Hello, I took what I thought was a good photo of a lighthouse in the waves... and then I tried a sky replacement which I am against on principle. The problem is that the photo with the new sky looks way better ! Help !! ORIGINAL PHOTO SKY REPLACED
  7. I had the same problem. I did a long press on the "Menu/ok" button and the yellow lock disappeared. The Q button is working again. Thanks !
  8. I hope it has a tripod mount, my 55-200 is difficult to use for long exposures.
  9. I’m looking for a nice (lightweight) half case too so any suggestions ? Nick
  10. I wrote a short post on this topic. What do you think? http://nwinspeare.com/2020/10/02/vari-nd-filters-in-street-photography/
  11. I have used Darktable quite a lot with my Sony a7r3. There is a learning curve after years of Lightroom though. The final look is softer and more film like in my view to the ‘commercial’ raw developers but maybe that is just how I learned to use it. It is a very powerful tool with many ways to do selective editing. You can even get it to send a tif to affinity or another external editor if you download the lua scripts. I stopped using it because it won’t recognise my x-pro3... and I just got capture one at 55% off. If or when I get back to using it again, I would miss the film simulations of C1 even if most of the time I edit the jpg from the camera. If there are any questions about Darktable, I’ll try to answer them. Cheers, Nicolas
  12. Loving the x-pro3 & 35mm 1.4 combo! https://www.instagram.com/nwinspeare/
