I would explain to the client that they hired you for your expertise and part of that includes how the images are processed.  Being such, you do not feel that it is their best interest to have access to the RAW files since they would not be able to process them to your level of quality.  Furthermore, it does you no good to have RAW files available for the public to see that have not been edited to your standards.  Having image such as this out there for people to see could have a detrimental effect on your business and tarnish your reputation. 

If they do not buy this, revert back to the contract which states they only get 5 images and refuse to hand over the RAWs.

Just got back home with my first box of Canson Baryta Photographique and am going to start printing "archival prints that will last decades in a conducive environment"  Grin

Off topic -
But if anyone has a 3880 please let me know which paper feed path you use for this media - rear ?
And what paper thickness do you set #4 ?
Gap = Wide?
Advanced Media Control = everything at 0 ? I want the most neutral to cool (EEF) result

The idea that ones photography is some sort of legacy is silly in this modern era. If you're shooting in order that you be remembered for something, I'm terribly sorry for you. It's not going to work out.

There are a billion photographers now. A million of them are excellent. 10,000 of them are astonishing.

None of them will be remembered. Most of them will never even be noticed. There are too many.

Wow - chill! You need to broaden your thinking and understand that people have perspectives different from your own. Not everyone or everything has to be only about the present!

If all I did was compare my photography in terms that you suggest, then I should pack it in today and put my gear up on Kijiji. I mentioned EW, AA and HCB only to provide context to the discussion. I'm not in those leagues, nor do I expect to be.

Being remembered for one's photography can occur at different levels - family & friends, regionally, nationally. We can' tall be international sensations. But we can be happy with our own small corner of the world.

Perspective, man, perspective.

It's one of the features of the Topaz Labs B&W effects plugin, for Photoshop and other PS plugin aware host programs.

So, Topaz B&W can provide masks to localize different B&W conversions using a mask?

At the moment I'm wondering about the amount of computing power needed to move 5 axis stabilization with a full frame sensor especially when the camera is attempting sophisticated metering functions and EVF at the same time. No company can debug every possible combination of circumstances.

I would advise early adopters to expect some odd results and much changing in firmware before things settle down.
I doubt that modern GHz speed processors have much trouble handling camera motions that on the scale of milliseconds; the inertia of the sensor is probably the bigger challenge, and it is still probably not as heavy as the lens elements that are moved in long lenses with in-lens stabilization.  What is interesting is features like compensation for rotation around the optical axis, which is impossible with in-lens stabilization.

Also, my guess is that the algorithms for this new 5 axis IBIS are not so new, but are based on those developed by Olympus, as part of the technology sharing announced with Sony's investment in Olympus. Hopefully in exchange Sony continues to put its latest sensor developments into sensors for MFT, even if it is competing with Panasonic for those sensor sales.

I don't think it does send 5600px wide photos to the iPad. Instead it sends smart previews, which are highly compressed and about 2000 pixels.

In any case, you have no control over the size of the file synced from LR.

  But when it comes to small pixels vs large pixels, MF  etc etc. I still think that the only way to figure out how good a sensor/lens combination is going to be is to test it - there seem to be a bunch of hidden non-textbook variables. Of course, in the long run theory will prevail.

I agree, in the long run theory will prevail.  On the practical side, in addition to testing particular lens/sensor combinations a particular feather should also be specified Wink  There's a lot of variation in feather structure and with some species and certain feather types aliasing artifacts are almost certain regardless of the lens, sensor and presence or absence of an AA filter.

I was hired to do a cool shoot that would involve heavy post work. We agreed on 3 images. It changed to 5 with pay. But client wants all the other non-edit images Raw or high resolution. An EU international client that sought me out. On one hand I'm happy to have done the work, on the other how do I know it wont be edited by someone and used commercially? About 30 other images.
The shoot involved client renting renting a unique subject that I likely wouldn't have a chance(nor the burning desire) to shoot in a life time...If that would make any differnece(?)

Surely all covered by the contract???  You have already said the count went from 3 to 5 with (if I read it correct) more money/pay then a logical surmise is that if he wants all the original RAWs then that also has a price because in effect he is asking for an assignment of your copyright i.e. there is only one original RAW.  so like the 3 to 5 increase work out a mutually acceptable price how high that figure should be only you can determine because you have not given any details for others to "calculate" for you.

Best of luck completing the payout Smiley

Just curious to see if I was to sell it how much can I ask for it. The Body has 42,000 actuations, Body and Prism in good condition. The back shows some wear on the left side but not the LCD and HC 80mm f2.8 lens in very good condition. I have the box and cables and an Extra Battery Pack and charger.
   Also. Like New HC 35mm lens with Shade and caps.

   Thank you very much. I would like to sell it as a Kit.( The Body and the 80mm Lens)
