And I’m back~~!

Actually I’ve been back since Sunday morning but hadn’t had the time to blog until this morning. The minute I got back to work this Monday, I was immediately swamped with crap from all over the world. Obviously these brainless twits either don’t read emails or are complete imbecile. The idea of them not reading email is scarier though as it would means they don’t care what they are told instead of not being able to understand at all.

I haven’t uploaded my pics yet because

  1. I haven’t had them developed (they are all slides). I did try to get them developed in Japan but they now run on some batch processing schedule system and would have only been done by the 9th. Long after I have returned to Malaysia, so now I have to use plan B. More about that once it’s done
  2. As for the digital shots, I shot using RAW + JPEG on my Nikon D600 but when I tried to load the RAW files into lightroom 3, it didn’t recognized the files. A search on google revealed that Adobe is not be supporting lightroom 3 anymore now that they have lightroom 4 as a result, the Nikon D600 RAW format support was not added into lightroom 3 which came out late last year. Although they do offer some level of support using their Adobe DNG converter that converts any RAW into DNG instead. Thus allowing  any photo management software to read and manipulate the file.

I still haven’t looked through the converter yet as I’m thinking on whether or not to plonk down the money and just get lightroom 4 but the hassle of upgrading is actually harder than upgrading windows as it seems Adobe graduated at the top of the class (with Microsoft at the sametime) for “How to make it as hard for customer using your product” school of thought.

But enough about that, how was the operation to Japan this time? It was damn swell! Got to try out Christmas and New year in Japan! And the anime events! More about those later once I get the converter up and running.

  1. Bro, I’ve tried Adobe’s DNG converter, it takes up time & space (1 copy of RAW + DNG + JPEG) for every file that you’ve created. Upgrading to LR4 isn’t really that tough. I’ve downloaded a trial copy from Adobe, and before the end of the day, I’m sold.

    Hey, with better highlights/shadow control, and the new photobook tool, you practically have the whole photography digital workflow at the same location. Unless you’re doing PJ/sports work, you don’t need to invest of PhotoMechanics 5.

    Happy New Year & Cheers

    • Yeah, you’re right. Looks like Adobe got it right this time. Had to plonk down quite a sum to buy it though….
