Are you serious, or are you just playing?
yeah but i'm reading that these raw files open up huuuuuuuuuuuge in photoshop....
You can always drop down to an 8mp image for your street shooting and up it to 16 mp only when you really need it.
i've progressed from a rebel thru 10d and now 20d. the dr has improved with each, i've no doubt that the dr will be even better in the coming years.
hmmm there's an idea...
now, where's that phone number for onecall again?
Canon has a new 1Ds mkII site here with new samples and info.
I just downloaded one of the 11mb JPEG sample images. Simply amazing, one can zoom way, way in and still not find a pixel. The detail is astounding. I uploaded the church image. My computer handled manipulating the JPEG without difficulty its a 3.2 Ghz Pentium 4. I wonder if the RAW files would really slow it down? Anybody know where there are some 1DsII RAW files available for download?
I have a Pentium 4 with 1 Gig of memory and thought I would try 16 bit files. Crashed my computer.
When you added the memory to your machine, did you check to make sure the
pagefile increased in size too?
Also, by crashed, what do you mean? The machine bluescreened? The application
died? The application hung?
I'm asking because PS wants to have it's own scratch space. Preferably not on the
same drive as the application. You can change this. It's also the one thing I noticed
opening the raw files from the 1d. I have very little free space on the system disk
(which is the default "scratch" space) and PS just crawls when it runs out. Changed
to one of the others and it's all good.
Now about that scratch disk. I just checked and it appears I have 4 choices for scratch disks. The first is set to “start up” the next 3 show “none”. Drop down selections available are ether C or D drive.Should I designate a second or third scratch disk to say D drive?Thank you for any help you can provide.Sam
The disk you assign for scratch use shouldn't be the one the OS is on or the
disk you'll be working from (where your images are). For those of you that
have multiple computers and share out the drives, you shouldn't use those
network drives as scratch space (unless you have a very, very fast network
I'm not sure how well PS does splitting scratch disks across several drives
so I can't say for sure if you should select more than two. Definetly make
the primary scratch drive one with plently of free space and one not being
used for the OS or picture storage.
