Trying to sort things out at the perceptual level, it appears to me that EWA RobidouxSharp through linear RGB is generally both sharper and (this is the important bit) has less noticeable haloing than LWGBautolevelGamma3s100. And yet it introduces less moire.
EWA Mitchell through linear RGB, for example, looks really good in the sharpness/halo ratio department. Nice balanced scheme.
Am I missing something? (Away from my large calibrated monitor, but I don't think it matters.)
P.S. OK. Maybe LWGBautolevelGamma3s100 is a nudge sharper. It's less sharp than EWA CatRom through linear light, though, and CatRom does not seem to add an amount of haloing that matches the additional sharpness.
What I don't see is obvious advantages of the new downsampling methods over simply pushing the Keys alpha up from 0 until the sharpness is sufficient.
Again: Am I missing something? (I hope I am.)
(I reserve my opinion w.r.t. upsampling. Different game.)

Nice composition with the trunk and leaves, good timing, the light was just right.

I had no idea this was so difficult. It makes me wonder how I've managed to successfully stitch so many panos. On reflection maybe they weren't actually successful. I'll have to go back, check and delete any that don't meet the mathematical requirements.
It never ceases to amaze me how much people over-complicate stitching.

About 75% of my work is done through collaging (stitching) at this time, and 100% of my collages are done in Photoshop using photomerge.  The results are superb and I fail to see how other programs can improve on what I get from photoshop besides increasing the processing time and making the process unecessarily complicated.  Below is one of my most recent collages. This is one out of 45 collages created during my most recent expedition.  It consists of two handheld medium format captures combined in Photomerge in Photoshop CC 2014 using the Reposition setting and later optimized in photoshop using adjustement layers.

Hello Alain,

Glad to see that you have embarked on the stitching wagon! Wink

No doubt, PS does work very well for small stitches made up of a few frames and on easy subjects with lots of features like the image you are showing here. The American South West is really ideally suited for stitching.

Per my experience, the value of dedicated application becomes more clear when you increase the number of images and have to deal with less contrasty subjects.

But again, great if PS works for you.

It's not broken in my version.  They must have forgot to send me the memo!

So Sony Cameras are supported for tethered shooting, I can't find the information whether tethered live view works with the A7r?


Hey Stefan,

No it doesn't and I will need to discover if its even possible.  Depends if you can get Live View stream off the USB port.

Yes, I understand and appreciate that tool. It's one of C8's strongest features, especially when used as a local adjustment.Ahh, so that's what it's for. Not the most intuitive name for the control really.
Although on the dedicated help page for that tab is says "The Color Balance tool enables users to get precise control of colors, hue and saturation within an image." ( except you can't decrease saturation anywhere on that tab.

It still seems daft to put the overall saturation control on the exposure tab, rather than with the other colour controls.

The reasoning is that tweaking the saturation is a common adjustment that you often do when adjusting exposure, contrast etc.

After (again) following the File>Import Catalog importer I asked CO8 to carry in my LR5 catalog.  It ran all night and produced a skeleton of the catalog without previews - this has been the pattern, the screen grab is attached.  Unless I am missing something important, CO8 is not transferring the previews.  I bought the program with the understanding I could simply transfer in the LR catalog and continue working, without this I'm sunk.  Where have I mis-stepped?

Separately and equally important to me I want to create catalogs by importing a number of image folders from my working external drive into each.  Apparently CO8 prevents selecting more than one catalog at a time to import.  Have I missed something important?

Beyond the money spent on the program I really want to like this software.  Please point me in the right direction.



HI Michael,

I am glad you have contacted support - that's what they are there for!

Your screenshot does give a clue though.  Look at the total number of images in the catalog.  Only 76!

The reason why you are not seeing previews is that there is nothing in the collection (album) that you have selected.

When the import process completed it would have given you a status.  For example, how many images imported, how many were skipped etc.

So without knowing more facts I could guess that either the images were offline and they couldn't be read, or the file format is not supported by Capture One.

We do support the M9 though, unless you have a second camera we don't??  But I am guessing this is very unlikely.

Would be good to know the outcome.

This is surprising.
According to reports on both this site and the Adobe forums, Photomerge is broken in the latest CC2014 release. Haven't followed the issue closely, but apparently Adobe have acknowledged this and are working on a fix.

Do they? How much do they cost, roughly? I may be interested. I have an Esprit 65 in H mount, I could be interested for another mounting plate.
I have never seen the Esprit. I think they are rare.

I have not checked the prices for a while, but five years ago the adapters were sold for euro 1000-1800, depending on the model.
The older adapters for eMotion and Hasselblad backs demanded the user to shim the back individually. There was a foil stack, and one had to peel off the individual foils to adapt the back to the camera. Later Sinar introduced the solid inserts for different cameras, and it became unnecessary.
 I mentioned that because I had to shim an adapter for my friend, who bought the older adapter online.
