In Topic: Newbie Must Read: What new system did you just buy?

Just read this whole thread from the first page, and noticed there's almost no feedback from the experts to the many questions posted by the newbies. I got curious about a long post by LindsayH at the first page of the thread, so I read it all in search for an answer to her questions, in vain. I guess she was quite disappointed.

Tim, you're right when talking from the D800 perspective... I'm shooting µ4/3 and my RAW files are typically 16MB (OM-D EM5) each, that's why I mentioned "for me is plenty". Anyway, I learned about Snapseed from a buddy diver in the Philippines almost a year ago, Ron Lucas, who at that time was shooting a D90 and only carried his iPad and a separate hard-drive with SD slot. He only did a first evaluation in the pictures at the end of the day. Later on he sent me samples of his pictures after he post-processed them back in the Bermudas, where he lives.


I carry both, iPad and Macbook, and external drives for backup. You know, only Jesus saves; everyone else should backup. Old joke... ;-)

I guess this topic got a little confused because it was surfaced after 2 years of inactivity...

Anyway, a good alternative, if you plan to travel light and do the pp only when you get back home is to use an iPad, the little connecting dongle to read sd cards, and then use the little nice -and free - app called Snapseed. Apart from exposure, you can fix most of the parameters in order to judge what you're doing right or wrong and do any required adjustments before you get back home with a lot of sd cards full of junk. Starting with a blank iPad, you can have up to 128GB of storage, which for me is plenty, even for a two-week trip (if you're not doing videos, of course).

Yes, that would be an almost perfect replication of the human eye: a wide-angle lens on the front and a hemisphere-shaped sensor (the retina) on the back sending picture data to the brain. No shutter required; focusing mechanism and iris still lacking. Let the processor do all data-processing to get a straight picture out of it.
