The 7100 was my last Nikon

Did not like it above 1600

Very red/orange skin tones

Not a "bad camera" just not a fun one for me.

Yes it is good news Geraldo, thanks !

What an amazingly powerful piece of software for so little money.  That thing is robust!

Still getting to know it, and you're right, it is a tad on the frustrating side to begin with.

Pity they have no plans to develop it for Mac, but that would require a whole rebuild.

Oh well a few extra steps for quality assurance won't kill me.

That is good news Mark!

You can adjust and softproof on PS/LR and use Qimage just for printing.
I use it only for layout, up-sampling, print sharpening and, obviously, printing. None of that requires calibrated monitor or softproofing abilities.
It has some very nice features and once you get the feel of it Qimage makes your life easier.
My favorite feature? The "automated Job log". Today I printed more than 50 large images of different clients on different papers and sizes. As all images were reprints (luckily) I had to set nothing at all! Just searched for the printed jobs (some from last week, some from six months ago), loaded the specified paper and printed.
Make sure to check Mike's forum for news, tips, troubleshooting and feature request.
Good luck!

Bernard lives in Tokyo - I'm sure he'd be delighted to buy and send by courier - or even be the courier Smiley

If you use it to make this world less brutal, less exploitative, less inhumane.

How do you do that?

"Karl Marx, who knew quite a bit about the human tendency to fall down and worship our own creations, wrote Das Kapital in an attempt to demonstrate that, even if we start from the economists’ utopian vision, so long as we also allow some people to control productive capital, and, again, leave others with nothing to sell but their brains and bodies, the results will be in very many ways barely distinguishable from slavery. "

This topic prompted me to spend Thanksgiving with the 24-70mm f/2.8 on the D7100 to test it out.  Shot all day using only a little on camera flash for fill in some shots.  It was very enlightening.  The camera was set to Auto ISO with a min shutter speed of 1/50th.  Shots ranged from ISO 200 - 6400. 


1. The D7100 has really decent ISO performance for a 2 year old, DX size sensor with 3.9 micron pixels.

2. f/4 proved sufficient for DoF for most candid shots even though in normal shooting the camera would be trying for f/5.6

3. Except in situations with really bad backlighting, lack of flash was not a big issue.

4. Seemed that highly saturated colors suffered most from the higher ISO.

Hey all!

I've been shooting with my Olympus kit pretty frequently the past two years, and it's all starting to get a little grubby. Not so much the glass of the lenses, that's easily taken care of with a cloth or a Lens Pen, or some lens cleaning fluid for worst case scenarios. It's more the barrels and rings of the lenses, and all the little nooks and crannies around the lenses and bodies, where fingerprint residue, dust and god knows what else is building up. I'm wondering if any of you have some tried and true suggestions for safely cleaning gear to have them looking new, without the risk of damaging anything.

My current kit includes an Olympus E-M5 and E-M1, and the two lenses in desperate need of a clean are the 12-40 f/2.8 and the Panasonic 35-100 f/2.8.

Of course, the best course of action is to clean your gear regularly.  I use a extra soft bristle brush and microfiber cloths (rough textured ones) regularly and store my gear in drawers when not in use.  Then repack the a bag with routine gear as necessary.

With really dirty stuff brush off with the softest brush you can get away with.  Then use disposable dust lifting cloth.  If necessary, a damp (not wet) cloth helps.

On mounts, I typically use a little lens cleaner on a clean cloth.

On lenses, I use a blower first, then use Eclipse fluid on a clean microfiber cloth.

With sensors, I use a blower, then a clean lens brush like the dustoff or sensor brush.  When I get 'welded' on dust, I use a sensor swap and eclipse fluid.

Lens caps on at all times when not in use.  Body caps too.  Be smart swapping lenses.
