... Bessa presents the new postmen uniform.

I wish my postman would look like that (ahm, postwoman?).

Funny, I initially read your "postmen" to mean "post-men," as in "apocalyptic world in which feminists got rid of men" You scared me, bro! Grin

I used to use IQ250 profiles for my D800, but as of C1 Pro 8 I use the native D810 profiles for the D810.


Yes, the C1 native D810 profile is much better than what Phase did for the D800/e.  I also use the Phase IQ250 and Credo 50 profiles on my d800e shots.

One point that should be made is the difference between a 5K Apple retina display versus a "conventional" stand-alone 4K display.  In an earlier thread on these topics, I argued that type and fonts would be tiny on a 4K display, due to its huge resolution, and noted that Apple never provided a means to increase fonts on a system-wide basis, as Windows has since at least 1995.  I was corrected on that point in the same thread that some of you have quoted from.  The rebuttal to my assertions was that Apple addressed these problems using their own proprietary methods when it designed the retina display.  See the below links and reviews that cover those points and explain how the retina display does, in fact, address some of these issues:

I therefore am very interested to hear reports on how the retina display actually operates, as it is possible that some of the concerns in this thread may have already been addressed by Apple. 

More specifically, it might mean that Apple has addressed some of these issues on their 5K retina display, whereas third party standard 4K displays might still be severely impacted by these issues.  I'm not saying that is the case -- I haven't seen the 5K Retina display -- but that is what we'd all like to know.

Kevin, specifically:

(1)  Did you get a chance to use Lightroom?  The concern has been expressed that "One aspect of super high rez displays is the fact that apps like Lightroom that must rip the preview image from a raw file to show updates to development must do so and much, much larger amounts of data. Running Lightroom on a 4K display would be painfully slow unless you size the LR window way down. I've already seen people find standard 30" displays really slow to redraw...careful what you wish for, you may get it and find it not to your liking :~)"

But it has also been noted that the Apple promotional video is using Lightroom, so that is unlikely to be the case.  If Lightroom runs really slow in 5K, why would Apple use it on their own promotional video?   

Kevin, what has your experience been?  Did Apple address that in its design of the retina display?

Kevin, did you get the 4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU?  It allows for multithreading, whereas the i5 doesn't, at least according to the Apple web site.  What I don't recall is whether Lightroom uses or benefits from multithreading -- does anyone know?  And would that impact the video performance and how fast it could draw the preview image?

i canít get excited about 4/5k screens, while they are great for viewing finished work they are useless to retouch on as the 100% view is too small and the pixel doubling when viewing at at above 1:1 resolution means judging sharpness is impossible. they are more contrasty and don't have the gamut of a good HD graphics monitor with a bigger pixel pitch that means you can work easily at 100% view.

Again, Kevin, what is your experience and judgement as to whether this applies to the Apple Retina 5K display?

(3)  Kevin, how does it do on normal tasks -- like Mail and Safari web browsing?  Does it look the same as a conventional display, or is the text slightly sharper, or is it so much sharper that it is immediately noticeable?

Kevin, many thanks for your first report and for any additional information and insights that you can provide.

Ah, Portra. Lovely film. Here it is in 120 (Rolleiflex SL66SE; scanned on an Epson V750).

Nice! Did you use wet mounting to get this result?

First two r simply gorgeous, so is last one. But that is in no way a slight toward #3,4 & 5. But #1 & #2 r quite special. Smiley

Here's a link to an article about Map camera. As it points out, you usually get 5% "tax free" rebate with a foreign passport, and Yodobashi also will lower their prices if you show them an advert from elsewhere.

Yes, I guess they check for visa though... that may not work for me. Wink

In the mean time, tax is now 8% in Japan so it is even more interesting.

Other than the fact that installation attempt froze and I have recovered back to Mavericks, none at all.
