Adobe DNG and Photoshop leaving 'screen' marks on images

I've had a quick look through the forums and haven't seen this problem mentioned - maybe I didn't look far enough.  I've just purchased my X-Pro1 and ... view

X-Pro1 exposure bracketing. Does not match up to the rest of the spec.

The one element of the X-Pro 1 that I am disappointed with is the level of control for exposure bracketing. For a camera of such sophistication on so many ... view

I've had a quick look through the forums and haven't seen this problem mentioned - maybe I didn't look far enough.  I've just purchased my X-Pro1 and have discovered a major problem for my RAW workflow. Normally (i.e. with my previous camera), I convert everything to Adobe DNG format and then bring it into Adobe Camera Raw inside Photoshop CS4 for processing.  With the .RAF files used in this workflow, I'm getting a sort of 'screen' mesh of fine dots in a square pattern all over the image.  I've upgraded to the latest DNG converter, but the problem remains. Other must have had this problem before me.  Is there a fix anyone is aware of?  Maybe I have to break down and subscribe to the new PS Creative Cloud?  Thanks for any advice.

Hi, I'm new here looking for help with my dads camera, I hope! Camera in question is HS20 model, and the problem is with the SD Card. For some reason the camera will only save the pics to the internal memory. Obviously he needs it to save to the SD Card. It appears that the camera doesn't see the card for some odd reason. I have tried other cards in the camera and also tried formating the cards on the pc. Still nothing works. The cards will work in other cameras. I've scrolled through all the menus of the camera looking for 'something' that maybe needs switched on, but have run out of ideas. All functions of the camera appear fine, camera hasn't been dropped and he used to be able to save to the sd card. If anyone can give any suggestions to try, it would be appreciated. Cheers, Kev.

This is a fortnightly In-House Competition for those interested in Manipulation of images. All old friends and new adventurers are very welcome. And if you want to give it a try but don't know what,who,where etc then there is usually someone around who will be happy to answer any questions. Part 2.  So for next week's addition to the Orton Effect I would like you to use your image to create a suitable card for a Wedding Anniversary [Quote Angie D] Sorry this was late, for a stupid reason I thought Angie may post a seperate one for this week without thinking or conslting. My Fault  Angies IHCMAN will be an Orton Effect challenge but I have no details as yet. For those that don't know, Angies laptop is sick and currently off line. I will let you know if I get any updates on this if Angies laptop remains ill. Any questions about Orton leave here and I'll do my best to reply to, but think 'model village look' if you haven't tried it before. No idea if there will be extra instructions as yet.

Hi, When in A or S priority, the image shown in the viewfinder or screen is rarely like the picture I actually take. The picture tends to be either far underexposed or overexposed compared to what appears on the screens.  Any clues?

This is a gallery where you are invited to post one of your images that you are pleased with so that folks can comment on them. So please enter the image into your own Gallery, to be found in your profile, then copy the image and a link back to it, into this thread. The Gallery will last for one week.    NO images from current competitions please - they have a place already and this is for those that might otherwise go unseen. Also, please, no links to other images which do already have a place of their own i.e. comp entries, blogs. There is only so much viewing time that any one person has and this gallery is an attempt at making available those photos which may otherwise be missed. If your image is posted badly or you are not satisfied with its presentation and decide to repost it then please remove one of them. Images cannot be changed mid-week - there is always next week, and please try to comment on as many other entries as you can - we all like to have feedback. As with all galleries, silence please whilst viewing - any difficulties then please ask in a separate thread or email me via my Contact button and comments please in folks' own galleries. I will replace the Gallery, barring unforeseen circumstances on Wednesday evening at approximately 7. p.m. And if you are having problems posting your images I did a tutorial (which is compatible with Mozilla Firefox) and it is here http://www.myfinepix.com/forum/33537/649705 Note:  Because Angie is not on-line I have done it for this week only.

Hi All, As I'm new to this forum and this camera, can anyone tell me if you can select a picture as a start up pic when you switch on? coming from a Canon xs30 it allowed me to select a pic (Which was my name and address/tel.No) this stayed with the camera and appeared every time it was turned on.... just incase I mislaid it somewhere.

Thanks again for the win Mary-Ann. For the next fortnight (until 27th April)  your challenge is to take a picture of a local landmark. ************************************************************* The Rules The aim of this IHC is to learn about your camera, its possibilites, and to develop your understanding of photography post processing. The competition is open to everyone and any make of camera may be used. Your entry must be taken after the announcement of the topic. No stock photos. Only one entry per person per challenge - you can ask for opinions before you submit in the discussion thread. You are expected to comment with cc's on as many others in the Registration thread as you can. There should be a Discussion thread, which enables questions, queries and comments to be made, and a Registration thread. Sharpening, curves, adjustments, colour saturation, dodging and burning - this type of adjustment can be made but anything which actually changes the image is not allowed. Post your finished photograph into your Gallery with a copy in the Registration thread with it's link and 'Mine's in'. If you wish to post a copy of the original in the comments section of your Gallery, with some indications of what PP has been done this would be very helpful to others who are new to Post processing. No stars to be awarded to any of the other entrants The winner posts the next theme and is responsible for declaring the end date and time  of the competition (usually Sunday at 6.00 p.m.) and choosing a 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the comp. That person should also change the title of the IHC from CURRENT  to CLOSED.
