Why different image in windows viewer vs elements 5?

23 October 2010 - 01:43 PM

Why does the images saved from Camera in windows and viewed onscreen look different when opened in Adobe Photoschop Elements 5.0?
When I open them with Elements 5, they actually look light and better, like they have been processed some. Why? It makes it hard to edit them when they aren't the same.
Can someone please shed some light on what is set wrong in Elements to cause this difference?

Used my E-PL1 uw yesterday, love the camera and PT-ep01 housing, love the housing. Using ULCS arms, tray, and INON D-2000 strobe. Had strobe 12 plus inches above camera, very slight angle up, set to EA Auto. I shot mostly f7.1 and f8, iso 100, shutter 100 to 160. Dove in Mammoth Lake Clute TX on the C-130 aircraft just snapping pictures of perch. Here's the deal, I knew they where going to be dark cause I barely touched fish with light due to all the particulates in water, and i didn't want tons of backscatter. Used kit lens set at 14mm wide position. Really believe this wide would be better if I used two strobes to light up the area. Saved MF JPEG and RAW. Only looking at JPEG cause I don't have a way to view these RAW in my copy of Elements.

M4/3 platform and wet lens question

26 September 2010 - 12:59 PM

Any reason to keep an INON UWL-100 Type 2 wet lens for use with current or future M4/3 camera platform?

I plan on buying an E-PL1 in the very near future. Have all my Oly C-8080 stuff on ebay, once sold I'll order the E-PL1. Then I'll sell off my Cannon A-720IS stuff to fund the PT-EP01 housing. Keeping all tray, strobe, arms, etc.

Which brings me to the INON wet lens. I've had it a year or two, it's in excellent condition, lens isn't scratched nor does it have water spots. Should I keep it or sell it? Money could be used towards funding a second strobe which I could use.

Oly C-8080 and PT-023 housing repair

08 September 2010 - 06:28 PM

Trying to breath some life back into my OLY. Been using a Cannon A720IS since '08 because of the trouble I was having with broken tabs on OLY PT-023 housing.

Haven't used my Oly C-8080 since summer of '07 because I didn't feel the PT-023 housing was secure. Plastic tabs holding port to housing had broken off, and I had used an adhesive that was sort of working to hold the pieces together, but just didn't trust it enough after making 20 dives to continue taking it under water. Well, just had holes drilled and taped, used 6-32 x 1/4 set screws, and some weld-on #16 cement. The weld-on is used to make acrylic aquariums, it actually dissolves and chemically adhears with the polycarbonate housing. Gonna let it set for 24 hrs, and hopefully take the empty housing UW this weekend to see if it will hold up.

Really want an Oly E-PL1, but must be content with what I have for now.
