    My Predicament the Canon 400mm or 100-400mm II or Tamron 150-600mm G2

    Hi, funny world, I traded in a Sigma 150-600mm because of the weight of it and I thought the Canon although 200mm less would be a lot lighter I also found that the Sigma was giving me soft looking images at 600mm even after calibrating it with Focal and must admit not that impressed with the...

    My Predicament the Canon 400mm or 100-400mm II or Tamron 150-600mm G2

    ON1 Photo RAW 2020 early thoughts

    I have both On1 2020 and Affinity Photo and like both, the 2020 version of On1 I have found without any change to my computer system to run faster, pleased with the Camera profile option, as I mentioned previous I did a test with On1 and L/R 6 camera colour profiles and On1 came out on top IMO...

    Choosing a printer- Canon Pixma TS6350 or TS9550?

    Hi, Depending on how much printing you intend to do I would go for a Canon ix 6850 to get started I used Epson for many years but always had the problem of blockages at the ink delivery after a while so I bought a Canon ix 6850 A3 printer and was impressed with the prints I got, also you can...

    ON1 Photo RAW 2020 early thoughts

    Hi, As I make profiles for differing lighting situations and also have 2 camera bodies (Both Canon but even the same version of a camera body can give slightly differant results ie, Canon 7D Mk ll to a Canon 70D) It would not be advantageous to open every image with the same profile, even with...

    ON1 Photo RAW 2020 early thoughts

    Hi, I think like many I got caught on the software merry go round after Adobe decided to go subscription only, I kept hold of L/R 6 as it had as I posted earlier the option for user made camera profile option but after looking closer at the On1 software it seems to do now what I need without 3rd...

    ON1 Photo RAW 2020 early thoughts

    Well I capitulated and downloaded the trial before upgrading and have to say quite impressed thus far, it's faster and one thing I wanted was the ability to install my own camera profiles, after doing so I created two profiles, one with On1 2020 and one with Lightroom 6, I thought they would be...
