george Posted November 19, 2017 Share Posted November 19, 2017 Hi Maybe its me doing something stupidly wrong, maybe I have the wrong settings incamera, maybe I have been 'away' too long. I am hoping its the second of the two! I am finding with my RX100 iii , which is a new camera to me, that I just cannot get acceptable landscape images, maybe only 5% that I am happy to upload. I have tried every different mode available on the camera, I don't think any of the images require the ISO to go above 125. I seem to be ending up with images with a horrendous amount of luminence noise and struggling to get a good clearly focused image with many too, unless I manual focus on something close in the foreground, but then the background is shocking. The noise is the main issue, as obviously once I try to correct it in Lightroom the image becomes soft. I try to ensure that I do not go above f5 /f5.6 as I have read with this particular camera that is the best fstop for landscape. I live by the beach, the weather is fabulous right now and really would like to get a good bank of images to work on once the weather decides summer should really be over. Many of the images I am struggling with contain almost entirely sky, sea and beach, and I am having to bin them, the luminence noise is shocking. I have just read that you should have the NR turned off in camera, is that what most of you do? What settings are you using to produce good landscapes? I am seriously considering getting my 5D back out of storage just to be able to get myself a stock to work on. Hoping some of you will be willing to share your settings. Just to confirm, this problem is really only when I am taking landscapes, anything remotely close is fine. Many thanks, and feel free to be a blunt as you like Jenny Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
