Adobe Lightroom - New features release

16 June 2015 - 03:25 AM

According to Lightroom Killer Tips (on 16 June), Adobe are releasing updates to Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile - but not (not) LR6.


The LR Mobile changes allow more editing; while the LR CC adds, amongst other things, a new feature called Dehaze (or add haze) Effect which, Killer Tips, describes as "pretty darn slick..... and for anyone who shoots u/w photography or at an aquarium". Apparently it cuts through haze and doesn't just add contrast.


The Mobile version has already appeared through the usual App Store updates. I've not yet received the CC update.

Nikon D800 and SD-XC memory cards

03 June 2015 - 09:46 PM

Hey guys


I'd welcome some expert advice please on Sandisk SDXC Ultra memory card capacity.


I'm using a Nikon D800 (I have had it two years) and have a 16GB CF card for the main picture-taking memory storage and a Sandisk Ultra 64GB SDXC card for the back up. 


I have either chosen the wrong SDXC card or I am doing something wrong as the card seems to stop recording - or at least cannot be read - once it gets to about 32GB used.


I don't think it's a fault in this specific card as I have two of them and they are both the same. And I have two D800 bodies too and have the same issue with both. 


I have tried reformatting the cards which has made no difference.


Is there a limit to the amount of memory that a D800 can address on an Ultra SDXC card? Have I just picked the wrong memory card (doh)? 


Your views and solutions would be most welcome.

Hey folks


If anyone has a Subsee +5 or +10 (or both) and/or the holder to fit a Subal FP-FC105VR/4 port I'd be interested.


Just PM if you have.

Subal Nikkor 18-70 zoom gear (Subal 4ZN101)

27 November 2014 - 05:07 AM

Having moved to FX lenses - and rapidly building muscle-bulk as a result - I'm selling the remaining DX lens accessories I have:


Subal zoom ring for the Nikkor DX 18-70 lens.


Listed new in the UK for the mind-boggling price of £113, a perfectly good, second-hand one can be yours for £30/€35 and that includes postage in the EU.
