Photos in the reduced size gallery: 2 or 3 MP, resized using the free software FastStone Photo Resizer 3.0, at the same time, data from the photos were imprinted from EXIF module JPEG files. When reducing the size of photos, I use quality equal to 80% of the original, usually in EXIF strip in the photographs I record this as Q = 80% (Quality = 80% of the maximum). This percentage of quality is more than enough to transfer all the details in the photo without excess file weight JPG... With 3 MP you can print A4 photos without any problems. The light weight of the photos allows you to quickly view sample photos for general acquaintance with the capabilities of the lens and allows you to save time for photo loading and disk space on my site. RAW files can be downloaded from the link in the review.

If the photos were not only converted from RAW and changing its size, but also adjusting in other program editors (retouching, color correction, crop, etc.), then EXIF I add the prefix edit to the strip (edited).

When viewing photos on a monitor, the site adjusts their size to the size of each individual monitor. To view a 1: 1 photo pixel by pixel, just open it in a new browser tab, do it as easy as possible by clicking on the photo thumbnail with the middle mouse button (using the scroll roller) or using the context menu “open link in a new tab / window” ...

This post is intended to reduce the amount of text in the reviews. The entry refers only to those reviews in which there is a link to it.
