From my experience with image processing, I can tell you that these images were slathered with EE either in camera or post - so many EE artifacts its not funny.  Hopefully it can be disabled if in camera.

Sorry ... but what is EE?

EE = Edge Enhancement/sharpening.  If you look at any of the high contrast borders there is massive artifacting showing that substantial artificial sharpening was applied to the point where it looks unnatural IMO.

I.E. on this picture look to the on the left border of the model's arm and leg and you can see a thick outline/ghosting caused by the edge enhancement processing, you might need to zoom in a bit:

Thanks ... I see it too. In fact, it looks like her skin on the legs has a horizontal pattern to it  :o

more like she's wearing tights?

perfect recipe for canon
- take an AE1 body
- call it the AE-1D
- put all the 1Dx bits inside dont leave all the goodies out
- price in between the 5Dmk3 and 1Dx
- maybe have to drop the shutter speed down a bit but who cares
- watch the preorder list grow massively

I dont really care about a new sensor

Take AE-1 and replace with F1n...... even more perfect  ;D

Appologies for my general ignorance of MFT charts but are these good?

I’m in awe of photographers that create art equally I’m in awe of the professional fine art printers who actually produce the final product in many cases it’s a real skill/art not to be automated, but one which I suspect is sadly in decline. I absolutely love print I wish I had a fraction of their skills. I’ve always printed since I was about nine or ten years old and test strips are simply a fact of life, a necessary and enjoyable step in the process.

Wouldn't worry about it, prices just going up in time to give you 'great' money off offers before Christmas

Good news, well done. That sickening feeling in the pit of your stomach when data files get lost/corrupted is horrible.

So does it have IS?

i would like to see corel put more work into paintshop.
it´s good enough for some user but has shortcomings that prevents it from being a replacement for PS.

I'm coming from PSE just curious what are the shortcomings? might save me a bit of time!
Have to admit I really want to go LR at the moment thought

ALWAYS keep the sun to your back......

This.  I'm not sure where it came from

I think it was advice from one of the early German flying aces in WW1 - Oswald Boelcke if memory serves me right.

Naw it was George Peppard in The Blue Max  8)
