Dan,
You may find, like I did having moved to C1, that your lenses aren't as good as you thought they were when using other RAW solutions - it was very expensive upgrading all my glass

But your mouse is excellent

Matthew, are you casting aspersions about my Tamron? If you think I'm forking out for a Pentax 300mm f/2.8, you're sadly mistaken. For the amount I use it, the 300 I paid for this lump is about right for me.

This was taken at about f/4 (only had a PK mount at the time so can't tell from EXIF), and the shutter speed was 1/125s, so a little slow for a lens like this (I had to extend the centre column of my tripod to get the right angle for him, something I try to avoid with this lens). Add to that my focusing was a little out - a fraction too close. Overall I'm pleased with the quality of this, so can't justify the expense of re-lensing myself.

I'll agree though that it's not the sharpest lens in my bag

Glad you liked the mouse,
Dan

LOL Dan
I just meant that since using Capture One and pushing RAW to the max I discovered which lenses were letting me down... and I just had to upgrade them
Turned out to be quite an expensive exercise! But like George, I'm on a lens diet now - soon to be shedding a couple... maybe...

There's another good tutorial here:

Tip: hold the SHIFT key down while adjusting the curves and it will engage a "fine tune" mode.

I'm a long time Capture One Pro user and can't speak highly enough of the package, and especially the JFI labs plugins ( http://www.jfilabs.com/ ) which give me lots of options/film emulations for converting to BW.

Hmm. Which lens is always in your bag these days? Couldn't be a 300mm Pentax-DA, could it?

Moral: Never argue with Matt.

PS: I know it's not the 2.8 version, because that doesn't exist - yet.
Keywords: Charming, polite, and generally agreeable.

I still wouldn't want a Pentax 300mm 2.8, it would cost, and weigh, too much.

But I am very happy with my DA*300. I think the 800 I paid for it is more than just right.

K-3, a macro lens and a DA*300mm...

mat thank you for the great post
I have owned captured one for years but never used it. if I'm shooting a wedding I will process in bridge and Photoshop but now I'm thinking of upgrading to version nine I thought I may revisit capture one
