M8 + Aperture 3 guestions

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Got a couple of guestions for the pair mentioned in the topic.


1) what if any default presets do you use for M8 in Aperture 3's Raw Fine Tuning module?

2) Do you have any other action presets for M8 in Aperture 3 ie. apply certain color tuning or similar to each photo as a starting point?

3) If you were to make a new Raw preset for M8 in AP 3, how would you apply that to all or several of your old photos? ie. batch apply it. I know setting it as default camera profile only does this for new photos.

4) Do you have different action presets for shots with or without uv/ir filter?


I've been messing about with digital cameras and different pieces of software for a good several years. But as with probably many other hobby photogs, I've never really got a proper grasp on the whole digital workflow or post processing. I've been doing things one photo at a time and each to their own.. this leads to terrible inconsistencies.


To start managing the problem I've at least now calibrated my imacs screen. So I guess next step is to find suitable starting points for any consistent editing in AP3. And yes, I prefer AP3 - it's controls and layout just suite me better than anything else so please keep this AP3 related.


And after I'm getting consistent results on screen, I'll then start to worry about printing. But that will be a whole new thread

      Not sure if I am the second or third owner, but the camera is well taken care and in good functioning shape.
      No coffee stain or visible scratches on the lcd. 
      RF mechanism is accurate, and has firmware updated to latest available version.

      1 used black Leica concave soft shutter button
      2 used oem Leica batteries (holding full charge)
      1 used oem leica charger
      2 used non-oem batteries
      1 used non-oem charger
      1 used unbranded L bracket with grip
      1 used black thumb up for M8/M9 (not yet in pic)

      PayPal included - $1300.00

      Buyer pays for shipping and insurance
      If you want sample shots or need more item pictures, please pm me - I can either send to your email or a google drive link via pm
      Shutter reads now 19,675 - might end with a few more soon.

      Been debating about trading or selling for quite some time. Truth is, I don't use it enough and it's a shame, as either color, b&W or IR( look-a-like with filter) frames are just gorgeous - I even like the shutter sound, go figure.

      Will ship to anywhere, but buyer is responsible for additional cost and due diligence.
      with customs as needed (and beware of battery restrictions please)
      I will pack the item very carefully with plenty of bubble wrap, so all will be very secure and protected - expect a slight larger box, 
      As much as possible, I will ship within 48 hours or faster, upon receiving payment. Unless there is bigger issues, like roads closed, etc.

      Feel free to ask any questions.Will consider reasonable offers
      I have feedack on EBay and Fred Miranda  'Bacalhau'
      Thanks for looking

      Hallo liebes Forum,
      ich bin relativ neu hier im Forum und wende mich an das Forum mit folgendem Anliegen:
      Ich habe von meinem Vater eine Leica M5 und diverse Objektive (Summilux 1:1.4/50, Elmarit M 2.8/21, Summaron 3.5/35) geerbt. Zunächst kam mir in den Sinn diese Objektive mit einer Fuji X oder einer Sony alpha zu nutzen. Allerdings tendiere ich immer mehr dazu, eine M8 zu kaufen, auch wenn diese immer noch nicht ganz billig ist.
      Die M5 ist in einem guten Zustand, da ich nicht mehr analog fotografiere, würde ich diese gerne verkaufen und hoffen, dass sie ein wenig zusteuern kann zu der M8. Ist das Gebrauchtmarktforum hierfür eine gute Wahl?
      Wie sind Eure Erfahrungen mit alten alten Leicaobjektiven an der M8?
      Schönes WE!

      I'm working through processing images in Capture One, and scanning film (tedious process), having ditched LightRoom and PhotoShop (reluctantly, but Adobe's charging policy and the way they handle their software, having to log in etc etc got to me).
      I would like all my photos to have the same treatment - a border and a watermark in the border, with my name and not much more.  Is there any way to do this using Capture One?  or do I have to resubscribe to PhotoShop (please say no, I don't need to do that).  Is there a Capture One work around or add-on for this?
