comment How do I remove the green and purple fringing from the B&W blouse in this photo?
Lightroom defringe works really well, if you have LR.

comment While shooting in RAW, do you have to post-process it to make the picture look good?
@whatsisname I think what Michael Clark is getting at is that the raw image data must be "post processed" before it can be displayed. When you import a raw file, a default group of settings is applied to begin with by the software as a starting point. So there's no such thing as a SOOC raw image.

comment Why is there a red overlay in my night photographs?
Most likely the viewfinder. Cover it before exposing.

comment How to properly store years of digital picture files on linux without databases?
Take a look at Lightroom. It provides a catalog that lets you keep things structured the way you want but handles all the tagging you could want. Prepare for a big up-front investment in tagging, however.

comment How can I automatically downsize images which have more pixels than needed for the actual resolution?
Noise is random by definition. Even after dark field subtraction you have noise. This is a basic fact of physics that cannot be bypassed. Especially on a smartphone camera with its tiny sensor.

What is the real problem you're trying to solve? Not enough memory on the phone?

comment How Does A 5D Mk3 Generate The Histogram It Displays In Live View?
If you turn on blinkies and then compare to the raw later (i.e. In LR) you'll find the raw has A LOT of headroom left that is not visible in the preview. This is enough to convince me.

comment Yongnuo YN-685 underexposure issue in bounce mode at longer focal length
As I mentioned elsewhere the radio capabilities are secondary for my use case so those limitations are not an issue at all for me. I use dedicated triggers in the studio.

You are likely correct that "early adopters" function as beta testers at that price point. I finally got a response from Yongnuo service and have sent them a link to this question and also to the review I posted on Amazon. I hope they appreciate the amount of work I've put into documenting this for them :-)

comment Yongnuo YN-685 underexposure issue in bounce mode at longer focal length
@inkista If you post your comment as an answer (with the link and some more detail to avoid being a "link-only" answer) I'll accept it. You are correct that it's probably too much to expect a flash costing 1/4 the equivalent unit from Canon to perform the same. That, along with the zoom motor noise, convinced me to bite the bullet and spring for the 600EX-RT.

No, but I'd be extremely surprised if that had any effect. Will try tomorrow and update the post.
