    Fun with Sony Cameras 2021

    Fun with Sony Cameras 2021

    I'm using the Mamiya 645 version of the Vertex and can use my Hasselblad V lenses via a Hasselblad V to Mamiya 645 adapter. I don't know if there is an adapter for Hasselblad H lenses to any of the Vertex formats.

    Fun with Sony Cameras 2021

    We went over to Sapsucker Woods for a walk and found that the visitor center in the lab was finally open again after being closed because of the pandemic. Took a few shots with the a7C and an old Contax N 24-85 Vario-Sonnar/ 3.5-4.5.

    Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    My old grunge motifs at the old Cadscadilla Boathouse in Stewart Park, Ithaca, Ny are all gone now. Exterior renovations including new roof, shingles, windows, doors, and fresh paint have all been completed now. I miss the peeling paint and weathered shingles but will get used to the new look...

    Topaz Denoise AI version 3.3.3

    It might be camera specific, but using the raw option workflow I get very low saturation and dark output from my Olympus E-P7 files.

    Topaz Denoise AI version 3.3.3

    I have it working better now, but raw file option is still problematic. Best to just send TIFFs for processing.

    Topaz Denoise AI version 3.3.3

    Watch out for this one. It is very buggy (at least the Mac version). My files come out looking desaturated, low contrast, really bad color,dull, and lacking sharpness. Particularly using the new raw file option.
