Thanks, Jeremy… we are crossing the Drake, and it is showing some large waves. Wouldn’t be a good fit for you. I’ll be thinking of you though.Re: Ms. Anhinga in Early LightReply #1 on: November 22, 2023 at 9:54 am
Good shot Russ.Re: sally lightfoot crabReply #2 on: November 21, 2023 at 10:17 pm
that’s a cool crab Jeremy.Re: Thoughts on Capture One and LightroomReply #3 on: November 21, 2023 at 6:58 pm
LR is pretty amazing. Jeff, bet you thought you’d never hear me say that. I have done similar tests and shoot at high ISO a lot, especially when I want to catch birds in flight or find it is getting dark out. I have tested against TPOAZ and On1 and I am blown away by how easy it is to get good results. Add in sharpening and the new tools for color and lens blur and LR is quite the processing powerhouse.Re: sparkling violet earReply #4 on: November 20, 2023 at 7:31 pm
You are getting good at photographing these birds. Nice one.Re: feedingReply #5 on: November 20, 2023 at 7:29 pm
Nice image, Jeremy. Such strange birds.Re: Thoughts on Capture One and LightroomReply #6 on: November 19, 2023 at 9:38 pm
One way to understand is to see. Maybe the OP will post some examples so we can see what is being talked about. Maybe once the forum sees the samples there might be some suggestions regarding what they are seeing.Re: Global Shutter – Important to Me????Reply #7 on: November 19, 2023 at 3:47 pm
For giggles and grins and just plain curiosity I wanted to see what AI would write regrading the question above. This took a total of 15 seconds for AI to generate.
As a landscape photographer, using a camera with a global shutter can offer several benefits:
1. Elimination of rolling shutter distortion: Global shutter captures the entire frame simultaneously, without any time delay between the top and bottom of the sensor. This eliminates the rolling shutter effect, which can occur when capturing fast-moving subjects or panning the camera. This ensures that all elements in the frame are recorded at the same instance, resulting in more accurate and distortion-free images.
2. Sharpness and detail preservation: Global shutter helps maintain the sharpness and detail in your landscapes. Traditional rolling shutters can create image distortions, especially when capturing scenes with motion such as moving water or trees swaying in the wind. With a global shutter, each part of the image is captured simultaneously, allowing for greater clarity and preserving finer details.
3. Better capture of fast-moving subjects: If you photograph landscapes with elements like moving clouds, passing boats, or flowing rivers, a global shutter can freeze the motion more effectively. It ensures that each frame captures the subject with precision, making it particularly useful for long exposures or capturing dynamic scenes.
4. Superior low-light performance: Global shutter sensors often have larger pixels, which can enhance low-light performance. With better sensitivity to light, you can achieve cleaner images and maintain good exposure even in challenging lighting conditions, such as during sunrise or sunset.
5. Improved flexibility in post-processing: With a global shutter, images can be edited more effectively in post-processing. Since there’s no rolling shutter distortion, it becomes easier to make adjustments to elements within the frame without causing unwanted artifacts or inconsistencies.
Ultimately, using a camera with a global shutter can provide landscape photographers with more control, precision, and flexibility in capturing stunning images of the natural world.

Brad, you and I might not see huge benefits unless we were doing video, flash photography or shooting with LED light present. What we will benefit from are new cameras where there is no shutter mechanisms and mechanics. Have you ever asked yourself why does my digital camera look like a SLR film camera? I predict new camera designs that will be more ergonomic and be designed with the user in mind. I have seen designs of some proposed camera bodies. They are really interesting. Shutter speeds will be way better too.
But, if you don’t need the global shutter then just keep using the camera you use today. In the end though new cameras will only come with global shutters. The landscape photographer is a tiny niche in the photo market and the majority of shooters are going to benefit greatly from a global shutter. Frankly I’m excited about the global shutter and it may help broaden the kind of work I do. I just may start enjoying shooting birds and doing more video.Re: SavannahReply #9 on: November 16, 2023 at 9:18 pm
Nice series of photos. Well done.Re: Welcome to Landscape & Nature ForumReply #10 on: November 16, 2023 at 9:17 pm
Very cool. Good to see the first to jump in Russ.Re: printer humidifier-KevinReply #11 on: November 15, 2023 at 10:15 pm
Eric, The 3880 was one heck of a reliable printer. You couldn’t kill it. The newer printers while they are feature rich seem to have not so much the build quality but they print so well. I haven’t had any clogging issues on my P700 and 2 P900s. If you are running prints every week there is probably no reason to use the humidifier sticks. However when I travel for a few weeks I always place them in the printer. Soak the sticks to load them up, open the printer and put them in the middle of the printer box. I usually put them on a paper towel just in case I have wet them to much.
It is important to take them out of the printer before powering up. As age sets in and I become more forgetful I now tape over the power button to remind me that a stick is in the printer. I’d hate to think what would happen if I powered up and the stick got caught. So, far no problems. Hope that helped a little bit.
