Sybrand Photography

works with over 400 customized lenses and uses special software to achieve optimal sharpness and saturated colors.

We are doing portraits, food, tiny objects, whatever you want, but always with superb colors, an incredible depth of field and a lot of pixels ...



Key-words are:

*optimal sharpness & high resolution

* maximum depth of field

* no color-shift (fringing)

* no distortion or vignetting

* natural colors

*DDT (digital dye transfer)

*Lossless Blow-up

* LightPainting





Less pixels, more color? To my surprise the old Pentax RAW-converter could save a 16 bit TIF-image. Is it the explanation for the rich yellows?







Thousands of old Pentaxes are collecting dust because the sensor is shaking. Causing ghost images and unsharpness. The problem is solved fast: unscrew the bottom and insert a (big) paperclip between the strong magnets and the steel plate. That's all...(the shake reduction will not work, the picture can be off center, AF is off, but you won't miss that all). (Sybrand & the old K-r)
