Uwe and the Outback team continue a steady flow of interesting articles for digital outdoor / nature photographers...
Our friend Uwe Steinmueller at the Digital Outback Photo website has been in touch with news of a number of new articles readers may find of interest. First are up two galleries (1, 2) of sample images taken with a Kodak DCS 760 at Stanford University's Cactus Garden. There's also another useful article looking at converting DCS 760 images to the ProPhotoRGB color space.
Also new are several articles concerning Epson's 2000P inkjet printer. The first discusses different paper choices and how they impact the final print, whilst a second describes results using Jon Cone's ICC profile for the 2000P using Archival Matte paper.
Two further articles, a field report on Nikon's D1X digital camera and a look at some of the new features in Nikon Capture 2, should be of interest to Nikon fans. The D1X field report, by Paul Caldwell, concludes:
"The camera is positive step in the right direction for Nikon and hopefully Nikon will step up to the interpolation aliasing issues in future firmware releases or a modification to the Capture 2 software. Right now I am still glad that I sold the D1 to purchase the D1x, however I am disappointed with my final image work in the larger print sizes unless I am shooting a macro or close up work."Finally, there are three articles for PhotoShop users interested in improving their images in the digital darkroom. The first two, by Fred Miranda, look at sharpening images and creating a 'virtual' graduated neutral density filter. The third article, by E. J. Peiker, describes how to correct areas of under- or over-exposure in your images. All very interesting, and well worth reading!
