    I have a free acount and have only uploaded jpg images. Does anyone know if you can upload RAW files and TIFF?

    Photo-Displaying sites

    Great looking site. Just curious, your Smugmug site has been up for a few months now - how are sales going? Have you made enough from sales to pay for the Smugmug fees??

    . I have the Fuji X-T2 camera too. I also have newer Panasonic m 4/3 camera. It does the focus bracketing AND the stacking itself internally. While I have Zerene Stacker and have used it a lot, it's just so much easier and quicker to do my focus stacks automatically with my Panasonic camera.

    Frames From My Week

    I particularly like the interior shots. Incredible dynamic range. Impressive how you could get the exposure perfect for both the interior and the outside sky/clouds. Is this an HDR image?

    While on the subject of film gear...

    I too shot various interchangeable lens medium format film cameras back in the day. Although my favorite medium format by far was a TLR (Minolta Autocord). I preferred it over my Hassy and Bronica rigs. Have you considered using TLR cameras? Being cheaper, TLR might be the logical next step for your B&W film photography students.

    Alan, are you shooting all medium format now, or are you also shooting 35mm film? In the dark room are you printing strictly black and white, or are you developing and printing color film/slides too? What print sizes are your favorities?

    That's quite the assortment of old manual focus lenses. Lately, I've been buying up cheap Bronica medium format lenses and I using them on an SQ/Pentax adapter. The look and bokeh of some of these old, 5 or 6 element, manual focus lenses is very nice. Also, they are really easy to take apart and CLA.

    Resignation as a Fujifilm Moderator.

    Mike, sorry to see you leave the Fujifilm community. Dallas, I'm available to take over this moderator position. I've shot Fuji bodies since the S-1 Pro came out 15 years ago. I still own an IR converted Fuji S-3 Pro, X-E2 and X-T2. I've owned or used many of the current Fuji X lenses. Dave

    Deal on LR Presets

    About 20% are HDR presents. Some are graduated presets.
  15. . Yesterday I saw that Trey Ratcliffs LR Presets were on sale (over 200 of them in a bundle that normally sell for $89 USD were now on sale for $49). Well, I bought them with PayPal and stayed up LATE last night trying out each preset on the types of images that I typically shoot. I found that maybe about 50 of them were way too wild and crazy for my taste, but the rest were definite keepers. As with all presets, one can tweak the settings a bit to make a preset just right. I thought is was money well spent, and I'm sure to be using these presets frequently in the future.
