I am going to wait till I get a reply from ZAGG before I try taking the film off.... I am not going to try anything like that at my own risk!!!!!

LOL... hey, it's only money. But! since I am the one who mentioned it, I just tried lighter fluid on my screen and it doesn't appear to have harmed it a bit. Does anyone know if the screen is glass or not? If it's glass then most solvents will not hurt it as long as you don't rub too hard and put abrasion marks in it. If it's lexan or some other type of plastic, then I would definitely be careful putting solvents on it.

I did an experiment today in picture style. I'm using neutral and tried two shots.

1. Sharpness to 7
2. Sharpness to 0

turns out 0 Sharpness is more sharp and less noise. both at ISO1250
both 100%crop


also set my Saturation and contrast to both -4, color tone to 0

There are a lot of other factors that come into play as well. The in camera sharpness setting is going to sharpen everything, even the noise. So you could potentially get a less sharp picture if it there is a lot of noise. Also if the scale is 1-10, 7 is a lot more sharpening that what a person would reasonably do in post.

Saying 0 is more sharp is not fair. In your picture example it is true, but not true for every picture.

hey guys,

is the canon 60D and the Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, a good combination for taking pictures on the go?

Low light capability is pretty good. Here is another ISO12800 from Easter.

Can you see the Exif?


Most of the time I refrain from comment if a photo does not show Exif.


Yep, shows up for me.

Vinz,

The ETTR/LR NR example is excellent! Don't forget to set the AutoISO limit high now. I went from 1600 to 6400!...

The EC in Av/Tv with AutoISO is a pretty good trick too. I used M with AutoISO in a flower show which was so packed with people you couldn't breathe. So I set AutoISO and only worried about making the shot. All came in about 1/3-2/3 f-stops underexposed...

So I learned something good today. Av or Tv and AutoISO I can EC! Great!

I agree cameras push and pull ISO as you describe Gerry. Interestingly though, I came across an amusing video a while ago, suggesting we 'most especially' avoid ISOs in multiples of 125 - for 'shooting video.' So avoid 125, 250, 500, 1000. He may be inferring that the same holds true for stills. This is still in line with shooting in 'full' ISOs, but is stating there is a 'worst of the worst' to avoid...

http://vimeo.com/17863​518 (external link)

the same advice is echoed here http://vimeo.com …l/lesson/95/mas​tering-iso (external link)

I justfound this post in a forum (2nd post on page with graph):

http://www.fredmiranda​.com/forum/topic/64760​8/1 (external link)

its all a good read.

I'm a Lightroom fan - their NR is incredible and even better in Lr4 in regards to pushing shadow details, much cleaner vs Lr3.

Cheers,

Good references!

One of the 'penalties' I pay for the freedom of Linux is that I can't use PS and LR and all the other photography related programs.

I can use a Virtual Machine to run Windows and I do have a copy of Windows XP which I bought as a standalone license for a long deceased laptop. I am not sure though whether I can run the latest LR and/or PS on WinXP...

I have one option (method) of NR in Darktable and one in GIMP. They have a number of parameters I can play with, but I can match the in-camera NR with a lot of effort. I don't seem to be able to exceed it!:cry:

I am locked in with a cold for 2 weeks, so I 've been experimenting. I shot yesterday the same building across the street both RAW and jpg with the standard NR on.

From ISO100 to ISO 800 it was a cakewalk to beat the jpg

ISO1600 took a few minutes and ISO 3200 I can still beat the in camera NR with some effort.

ISO 6400 is a **** to get a better NR and at 12800 I have to constantly compare with the jpg just to break even...

That's my plan starting now. Thank you. My Auto ISO max is 6400 now.

I was able to run PS5 on XP but the LR 4 beta wouldn't load.

I am not familiar with that lens. If you mean the EF-S 15-85mm lens then yes - its a fantastic and popular combo.

If you mean the 24-105L, it too is a very good combo, although its not very wide on a 60D (versus 15, 17, or 18mm). Good quality walkaround lens though.

Its possible you also mean the EF-S 17-85mm. Its popularity has drastically dropped since the release of newer lenses and frankly the 18-55 has equal or better acuity.

The 24-85 is no longer in production, it was released in 1996 and according to reviews faired quite well for consumer lens.
here is a review on it.

Mirco, great shots! I specially like #1, but my eye want to see more of the left side and less of the bridge. The lights on the bridge are a bit distractive, they take away from the nice building in front.

Still an awesome shot tho ;)
