When 150 megapixels isn’t enough

TechTip-

When discussing high end digital capture, the question often arises, WHO NEEDS 150 megapixels?!?  Well, sometimes 150 isn’t enough, as the project I photographed last week illustrates.  The call came in because the client had a need that only the best equipment with the highest quality output could provide. HiViz LED Lighting out of Hendersonville, NC needed to produce a floor to ceiling, 224″ long mural showcasing their FireTech line … Read More →

CI-TECH_CaptureOne12_approved*

New interface  Capture One 12 introduces a new and decluttered “super flat” UI, designed primarily to make Capture One easier to use over long editing sessions.

There was, of course, the option to avoid 3rd party apps … Read More →
