    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Oh My! What is that? That looks very high-end old-school gear. That reminds me of some of the adapted contraptions these old film Medium Format Pros have in their closet that they bust out to adapt to digital. Jim Kasson has home-made tripods that look like a construction crane. He has old...

    Library module Using SSD while travelling

    I'm a travel photographer (which means I travel a lot, carry lots of cameras with me and shoot every day while traveling). So, what you are talking about is always my biggest problem or challenge. I think about it all the time and am willing to learn. But I'm stuck in my ways. I know what I...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    That is great info. I haven't dug through that site in a while, and I haven't stacked for at least 10 months. But I'm inspired to shoot a stack now.

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    That is amazing and great to know. I would far rather edit the rendered product DNG than the stack. Email Jim Kasson and report this, or post it on the Medium Format Board of DPR. There are a lot of quirky nuts like me that do a lot of stacking there. You would think that Helicon would just...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Johan, you have hit on a key point that always confused me. Jim lectured me on it for a while a couple of years ago. I will miss on the technical explanation, but the DNG file that is rendered from Helicon is a DNG file but it is not really a true raw file. It is not like the DNG raw that is...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    You are stimulating my memory because I was on this focus stacking kick about two years ago during covid where I was shooting (for example) 125 shots of an object and stacking it. That was stacking 125 100 MB files! LOL. I was stacking because GFX has some disadvantages on DOF and I was on...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    We are good. No worries on my end. I can promise you that when I wrote my reply, I had not seen your edit. I thought you were messing with me a little bit on the tripod dig. It's no big deal and I appreciate the info you and John gave me on how best to sync the Auto Upright tool by...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    I don't think so Johnan. You edited the timelapse part in later. You originally said only this "One word to give you a clue. - tripod," which was flippant and sarcastic, as if I've never used a tripod or dind't know what one was for. I don't think your point was about timelapse...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Thanks for the valuable tip Johan. I'll take that under advisementy. I have four Really Right Stuff tripods and more heads than I can count. I shoot Medium Format and am a resolution and DOF junkie. That means I'm on a tripod a lot or at least on a monopod a lot more than a lot. Like almost...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Thanks John, and this is what Johan was trying to tell me too. You only check Upright Mode on syncs. What I didn't know was the bug that is described above. Anyway, syncing "Auto" is a bit of a mixed bag because if it doesn't work, you have to turn it off for that image. I never sync a...

    Thanks! I want all the gurus to go vote....

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    You have the evidence because auto doesn't work on sync. But I'll go upvote it and make Teresa do it too! That is two votes. I need them to fix it now because I'm shooting in Sardinia and I'm tired of plowing through every image clicking on update. Haha.

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    My bad. If you don't want to that's cool. When I get back to the US I'll drop them a line. But I bet you you that they'll listen to you and not to me. LOL. But I'll give it a try...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Thanks Ken. I didn't know I could interact with Adobe directly in that manner. This sight is a continual font of learning for me. I have little clout with Adobe even though I died a death of a thousand cuts for almost 6 years defending them against troll and marketing attackers on the Fuji...

    Transform - Auto - "Update" Question

    Victoria... Performance? Tell Adobe to stop holding back for old computers. The computational power is immense now even at the mid-range on all new PCs and for damn sure with Apple. Let's do it. Tell Adobe to not let the computational. power of my grandchildren's phone cameras best them...
