I'm looking for a decent polariser to use with a borrowed Phase One kit (SK LS 80mm f2.8 / p65+) for copying artwork with cross polarised light. I was considering a Lee 100mm square "circular" glass filter but for less money I could have a complete Nisi V5 pro kit with filter, holder and a selection of lens rings. Has anyone used a Nisi for this kind of work? In particular I am concerned about sharpness and colour casts.

Thanks,

William Chitham.

Interesting, but then why the apparent change in noise reduction that Peter mentions? Or did Peter notice this on Fuji files?


These are Olympus PEN-F files. John B. is right that the files I looked at both used local adjustments in the shadows. P4 looked better to me than P2102 on my Eizo monitor, even when I deleted the adjustments.

I guess I need to do more testing. But itís late here, so...

Best, P

That's just the going rate for LR / PS CC for everyone. I would think students would get a better rate.
Yep, you're right.  I guess students get a good break, though, when buying "All Apps" - $20 vs. $50.

Nice set, I like the blurred silhouette of the woman in the third shot.

I think this quote by Richard Butler (DPRevue) needs serious consideration:

In my look back at my excitement surrounding the development and launch of Lightroom v1.0, I said I felt that the subscription model "runs counter to the longevity benefit of building a database around my images". I stand by that.

I don't think it's worth quoting something without citing the exact source, Ian, when the quote doesn't make sense. v1.0 never had a subscription model, and I'm not sure it was ever suggested.

I would agree it's risky to accept a subscription model that disables the database after the end of the subscription, but Adobe don't offer that model.

Just caught up with this.  To say I am disappointed is an understatement.  I have just been on the UK Adobe website and it seems LR will cost just under £10 a month or £120 per year.  I have LR6 standalone and am happy.  I do not want to go to the cloud as I want to keep my images on my hard drives (with backups and archives) not keep them somewhere else that I do not know and wonder if someone else could use them without my permission.  I do not trust that they will not disappear or that there will not be a password problem that renders them inaccessible.
 
As far as I am concerned LR is a mature product and I just want it to be updated to ensure that if I change my camera body, LR will read the RAW files.  £120 per year for that, no way.  I will keep LR6 until I get a new body and then think what to do. 

I resent a major supplier trying to manipulate the market like this.  The nightmare scenario is that in the future we could have to pay a subscription to view/print even jpegs and tiffs.  Perhaps we should return to hard copy and there could be a future after all for slides, negatives and prints!

regular colour neg was just as good to scan to colour

Ouups, should have been "just as good to scan to B&W"

It's similar to how McDonald's changed, from selling fast-food to 'selling' franchise agreements with land/locations.

I'm not a fan of subscription-limited software, but it's nothing like that at all - that's just prejudiced nonsense.
