The M43 Onion - Return of the Panasonic Road Map

This just in -- Panasonic has released some dream lenses on their roadmap.  No we are not talking about the 42.5 f1.2 and the 150 f2.8. There's more!  Panasonic is into supporting m43 for the long term and making sure we have lenses to look forward to.  Panasonic have also added to the road map the following lenses to be "released sometime during the millennium."  M43 shooters were saying that they can't wait.  Well, actually they might be right.  Some forward thinking m43 users have pre-ordered these lenses and hired lawyers to add these lenses in their Will for their grandchildren to use. Indeed, M43 is the best format for "legacy lenses."  <Ducks for cover>

In this part of Southern California the winter rains green up the pasture lands.

Hey, it's winter, so how do you test a new camera? In town!

GH3/14mm/ in the WORST possible light (darkly cloudy, drizzling, almost twilight).

The GH3 acquitted itself EXTREMELY well, and I am quite happy with it.

Hopefully Spring won't wait too long this year, and I can get some more interesting subjects to shoot outside

Lady in Blue
In reply to SLOtographer, Feb 2, 2013

I mostly use my GF1/Voigtlander 25mm/f0.95 for close focus stuff these days (partly because it is so cold outside). This is a home made Christmas card from a few years ago.

Lady in Blue

And this is a birthday card I made a few days ago using 100 year old stencils. My stone stamp says quite a lot about me....made in China several years ago.

looks like the same climate as we have in Spain - wet winters in the plain, and cold in the hills

A week in New Ireland oin the South Pacific
In reply to SLOtographer, Feb 2, 2013

I've used a few of these in other subject-speciific posts -- I hope you don’t mind. I was in New Ireland taking photos for a tourist website. Fascinating place.



Friendly parrot

Feeding the eels

Kavieng's seaside market

Beach front, Namatanai



Namatanai Lodge's picturesque bungalows

AND back in Rabaul after a week away, Tavurvur volcano was still smoking and (as a result) disrupting airline movement because that smoke comprises very fine, very abrasive dust.



A typical wet season day, cloudy, drizzling, and all that stuff. Probably looks cold, but in fact it is still warm just 4 degrees south of the equator in the New Guinea islands. These boats do regular passenger runs between islands --I made the 2 hour journey across open ocean three days ago in one of these boats. Actually shot in drizzle -- one hand to keep most of the direct rain off the camera, the JJC hood to protect the lens front element.



A quick snap yesterday of a girl from our village proud of her newly asymmetrically braided hair. I used the stupid little accessory flash for fill and shot on iA on the E-PL3. Yes, that flash shadow can be seen but if I want to I can take care of that and it is certainly preferable to the non-fill alternative.

So there you have it, folks, a pretty entertaining week for me here in the New Guinea islands.

Cheers, geoff

Lucky you to get such a wonderful opportunity...and to take such good photos (maybe it is not so much luck as skill/eye?). Fascinating place. I am interested aspects of the ethnology of this area and have just finished reading the Rev Gill's "Myths and Songs from the South Pacific" 1876. The Victorian missionaries have a lot to answer for! Would love to visit but it seems an awful long way from Blighty.

random shots - Washington DC
In reply to SLOtographer, Feb 2, 2013

Here's some shots from last week in Washington - it was too cold to do much but DC was busy anyway. Variously processed.

the obligatory Lincoln Memorial shot

overlapping arches, old postal bldgs

the march for gun control

blur and conversion is effort to emulate old snapshots from my parents albums, not sure it worked

Smithsonian castle topzed up, trying to get look of very old postcards, not sure this worked either but it was fun

It is a long way from blighty, Paul, but it would be worth the trip!
In reply to PaulChapman, Feb 2, 2013

Well, I think so, anyway! Yes, it is true the missionaries had a lot to answer for -- but not all of them. The Kwato Mission,a breakaway group from the London Missionary Society, got the mix right in my view, for example. And the LMS generally was pretty good. Look up "Tamate". I make reference to him here:

http://pngtimetraveller.blogspot.com/2010/05/by-geoffrey-carrascalao-heard-15-may.html

Also back in the 60s I met some old Catholic priests and nuns who had been totally absorbed by their beliefs on one hand and the congregations they worked with on the other. Lovely people building bridges.

A good read for what it was all about really, though, is "Rose" a novel by Martin Cruz Smith, in which he highlights the role of the missionaries in general in subjugating vast populations and making them slaves of the western industrial machine.

Cheers, geoff

I like the pictures, only thing is that I think they look better a bit darker. Maybe you have not compensated on camera.
