  1. I did watch Abraham Lincoln just the other day in motion and full colour, way more handsome than i was expecting. Definitely creepy but fascinating at the same time, think we're one step away from regenerating humans from their DNA. imagine the stories they could tell us...
  2. Yeh it was literally tweak the settings ( not sure what they were off-hand ) which in turn prevented the issue from reappearing. Are you using a standalone version of LR? Since using the dreaded Adobe subscription ( not a fan ) the issue is no more. Obviously i can't compared files to those of Sony or other manufactures for sharpness etc. But i'm happy.
  3. I did notice a lack of sharpness rather than the dreaded worm everyone mentions, I did comparison tests using other available Raw converters ( i've shot raw since it was an option ) and there was definitely an improvement outside of LR, but then i read an article on some random site about the Abode LR settings, and low and behold you could achieve the same quality within LR so no major expensive software change or new unwanted learning curve. That was with Standalone LR, since being forced into their subscription package just to keep up to date and with the Jones's, there hasn't been any issue
  4. Those are pretty substantial factors, and i notice the price difference isn't massive. I have promised no more camera bodies this year after 2 last year...Theres always a justification
  5. Never tried using the X-T range, always preferred the rangefinder look but i'm tempted, I think the software is better, ie, focus stacking is available. What are the main benefits for the 4 coming from the 3?
  6. Complete Fuji fan boy here, the X-pro being my main work horse and X100 is my guilty pleasure. I haven't picked up the canon 5d in 5yrs...and won't anytime soon. I get the hoo haa over the X-trans sensor files and LR, Adobe should hold their head in shame. Although i stuck through it and the latest files on LR come out crystal clear and no wiggly worm effect. Although dam LR is slow on my iMac. Anyway, yes, the X-pro is great, if i could use just the X100V i would...I also purchased a Ricoh GRiii recently as an EDC which is beautifully built and light but yeh its no Fuji.
  7. Totally get that, i find myself spending hours a week observing what sells and the work here of other more experienced contributors, putting yourself in the editor/researchers chair is a good way of looking at things, it's interesting seeing some sales of images i'd never dream would be sold yet those who are more experienced maybe understand the nature/process of stock much better. Fascinating world this is.
  8. Thank you for that explanation, although i contribute and have always loved art and photography my background is very different so not entirely sure of the workings of publishing etc. So just trying to understand it further. I can see how it can become a very tangled web, not knowing what's been used and where and by whom, tracebility etc. It's a lovely feature that i enjoy skirting through almost daily and enjoy seeing others getting sales. The commission comment was tongue in cheek
  9. Could someone explain the significance of the " Images Found " threads, i mean i always look through out of interest rather than expectation. Is there commission for finding someones image being used or as i suspect a way of keeping an eye on our work not entirely trusting of Alamy to follow through?
  10. I don't like Mondays! Just another grey day in London. Thread sounds like two great photography project title ideas
  11. Hi Ashley, As hinted above its not all gold and glitter in the world of stock but i'm assuming you're aware of all that shenanigans. Anyway welcome to the friendly and honest community that is Alamy. Looking forward to seeing some of your photos. Jay
  12. Ah gotcha, would be very useful. Surprised Alamy hasn't it own or LR for that matter. Although even Instagram doesn't allow direct access anymore.
  13. Had a very similar episode a few years ago, optician said also with terrible bedside manner he thinks i might have a brain tumour or cancer ( always a pleasure to hear ), a week later after much concern my doctor said the exact same as you, scaring from birth. Some opticians really should keep their opinions to themselves and just advise seeing a doctor to be certain there's nothing serious going on. Glad your all good
