Anyone finding Lightroom running any faster. I'm not. No quicker than before which was slooooow!.
My catalog may be too big regardless.

My first empirical impression with the updated version of Lightroom Classic was that it is faster when importing and browsing through. But almost the same slow speed as before when converting CR2 files to DNG after importing. Export original size seems to be faster though. I'm using Windows core i7 machine, 64G Ram, NVIDIA 1080 GPU.

Nice, all these pictures with the warm autumn colours!

But what if there are no deciduous trees around... ;)


Nice expanse. It reminds me of home, although we do have lots of coloured leaves. Well, we did. They're pretty much all fallen now.  :)

Lenses / Re: Proper way to store lens

I'm going to put a plug in for SKB with thinktank dividers :)

The SKB cases are very nice, and the thinktank dividers are very thoughtful.  They're much thinner than Pelican, which can be both good and bad -- Pelican dividers are not very adjustable and are so thick that they take up a ton of space, with the tradeoff that they provide more protection.  The ThinkTank dividers, I think, protect enough protection, and let me cram in a lot more stuff.

The lid organizer is also a great price on these, and really well designed, compared to the pelican ones.  There are also SKBs where the inside is a removable zippered container with shoulder strap, or backpack (by ThinkTank), neither of which are exhorbitantly expensive.

I'm not a fan of the cut-it-up-yourself dividers or the pluck foam, because I tend to reorganize my storage quite often -- as I buy more storage or as my gear changes.

Lenses / Re: 85mm f/1.2L II or 85mm f/1.4L IS?

To me distortion and rendering go hand in hand. If I correct distortion, the pop just disappears and the shot goes flat. So I buy lenses with the least amounts of disortion as possible.
Vignetting doesn't really matter in portraits as I normally shoot with my own light and at iso 100 so correcting doesn't damage the shot. But in low light where I REALLY need all the light I can get, heavy vignette ruins the corners. :)

I hadn't really thought of it in that way though thinking back I have noticed it - I have a copy of the Samyang 14mm 2.8 and the distortion is very odd - in most cases I leave it but when I have tried to correct it it does seem to diminish the photo.

Here we are 2/3 through October and I still can't find any new samples online. I really thought a new 85 L would see Canon really using a lot of famous photographer to drive up hype but still nothing. I still find it hard to believe this will be anything less than a great lens but I'm beginning to think they really are going to keep the 1.2 II as the flagship (I know they had said that but I assumed that was just empty words while they ran down the stock).

EOS Bodies / Re: What is your Canon wish list ?
« Last post by ajfotofilmagem on October 20, 2017, 11:49:25 AM »
I want a more reasonably priced HSS speedlite, a canon 600 ex rt for only $200.
I wish a 430EX III with AF assist beam capable of filling the out-of-center focus points, and compatible with the external battery pack.
It could cost $ 350.

I've just realized that there is a slider on the bottom of the histogram in the new version of LR CC, that works like the mid point slider in Photoshop's levels pallet.

I also resent being forced into a subscription model, which is costing me much more over time. The problem is that none of the other options provide a single package that matches LR's features. Yet! This is a great opening for Macphun and others to up their games and poach a lot of unhappy Adobe customers.

The Macphun survey needs a fourth response category: "I'm sticking with a pre-subscription version of Lightroom." Unless by "Classic" in the first response, they mean the perpetual license version of v6. Chalk one more bit of confusion up to the Adobe nomenclature.

Look at the youtube reviews for this., not great.

I'm not bashing yongnuo. I have some of their stuff already. But I wish they'd listen to ccomplaints and make a flash addressing the concerns.
