  2. Wow! Very nice color, and clarity, and sharpness, and... Wow!

    I do have a few questions as they relate to your S5 experience, Charles. What was the exposure on the ISO 1250 image? Can you take some high ISO low-light shots (eg around 1/30s f/2.8)? Are those processed with ACR 4.1? Thanks!
  3. Your photos from the S5 are quite sharp which is something I have been disappointed with in the previous shots from the S5 I've seen... as they looked pretty soft and a little flat.

    Is this all in post or in camera?

    The exposure was 1/60 at f4. 1/30th is to slow for a small child, unless their sleeping.:wink:

    These were processed with RPP. I also tried them with Finepix Studio but preferred the output I can achieve with RPP.

    Thanks! Its no D2x but I'm am more than pleased with it at this point.

    I shoot RAW and do all sharpening in CS2.
  6. The first image dosent really do it for me, the harsh catchlight is popping out a little to much.

    Second shot work alot better for me.

    What an adorable little girl beuatiful eyes! Hard to judge the high iso performance on such a small image, but it looks good imo.

    RPP is it only for your s5 you prefer it ? or do you process you d2x files with it aswell ?

    I tried it and it was quite slow, to change things really takes time.
  7. Her skin... and those freckles (!)... on the first one are incredible. Very nicely done.
  8. Thanks, Charles. Well... any (other) subject would do, but 1/60 at f4 ISO1250 is already relatively low light... :wink:

    I see. I haven't heard about or tried RPP, but it seems to be doing a good job... and so do you! :smile:

    I can respect that. This was a test to see how the S5 dealt with CLS and off camera flashes. Exposure and color looked good to me.

    While I think the noise levels were good for this situation, I was looking more at the dynamic range it had at the higher ISO. I love my D2x but it suffers, not from noise, but from loss of dynamic range at high ISO.

    I use RPP for quick conversions for both bodies. Speed is not what I am after. When the image is special I slow down and use RML. It sses floating point math which makes it slow but it also means it finds details the others don't. To each his own.:smile:

    Thanks Stuart. Still learning.

    I really prefer those candid type shots of children. Seems to capture them better.

    I've been PM ing Charles concerning the S-5 and mentioned that I finally got to handle one when I was in Atlanta. This was after using a D-200 for a couple of days. I found that most of the controls and placement on the S-5 were indentical to the D-200. Probably the only difference in the 2 cameras is the "chip". I personally prefer the Fuji chip. I understand that the S-5 is actually the D-100 platform. Sooo!! your D-200 is essentially the S-5.
