Lastly I'm totally out of time for hanging around with my camera, but I want to write about my little software discovery.

Since i switched to Linux, i was missing software for RAW files. I tried photivo and rawtherapee, but it was slow and frustrating (RT likes to crash frequently with pentax files). I started loosing hope but then: I found darktable -

From DT website: "darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them."

Darktable is a young project. Folks from DT team are working hard on new features.
Menu and workflow is similar to Lightroom, but there are some new, nice features (for example - right click on sliders will open dropdown window for precise selection -… ). For me - comparing usability to Raw Therapee -  DT is much much better. Now i can specify my favorites and most used tools and effects (white balance, exposure etc) and gather it in one menu and hide unnecessary plugins (not shrink panel, but completely hide it from tools menu).  

DT has also some default settings for many cameras. I'm surprised how good photo can look on default settings :). I'm also amazed how fast DT  is (it has OpenCL support).

I just think Darktable is worth trying. It's great piece of software, it's free and it's open source :-).

song for today - daft punk, contact -…
