  • I've always had a thing for girls who pack bubble guns! Very cute.  The concentration on her face is really intense.
  • A walk around the Reeves Reed Arboretum in the light rain. Shot with the GX8 for natural light shots.  Was shooting with my D810 and the R1C1 macro lights for most of the shots.  Here's a couple of ...
  • Dogs are wise about a lot of things.  Not saying high IQ or cognitively genius, but wise.  Dogs will do anything to avoid physical conflict.  Dogs will withdraw and drop their focus if another dog ...
  • That 12-32 kit lens that comes with it is a real gem. Completely unexpected. I got it on my GM5, and thought, well, yeah, we'll be leaving that in the dry cabinet, but the image quality, even...

  • Replied in Spring
    Spring in NJ.  75 degrees and clear one day, 30 degrees with 50mph winds the next. Day job has had me tied down, but did get out during the end of a rain storm to shoot a bit. Finally, having ...
  • I shoot a lot of jazz musicians for their publicity stills and cd covers, in live performance, and the only way that 1/125 is fast enough is if you're really good at catching the tiny still moments...

  • Very, very impressive. I've been quite happy to shoot at ISO 10,000 but to get two more stops (the pictures at 40,000 were excellent... one more stop up and things started to get a bit weird) so...

  • Google's pattern of behavior in other businesses suggests that this is probably the end of Nik development, probably even for bugs. One or two iterations of the Adobe tools to wreck the interfaces...

  • This is in fact something that's been happening with the rubber and other synthetic skins for a very long time, and it doesn't happen to very many people.  I also know a couple of friends who've ...
  • I know I sold a lot of GX8 based on my recent Cuba trip, where I shot a pair of them for a two week trip photographing dancers and musicians.  I'd have NEVER done that agenda with anything other ...
  • the only zoom i still own is the 10-24, and won't own that once someone gets a prime out there that's 14mm or 15mm equivalent.  the electronic viewfinder is also much improved over the xpro1, and ...
  • Replied in X Pro 2 focus
    check my post in the "this week's photos" thread.  I think it's excellent at mostly crossing.  Also at pretty much straight on (or straight going away).  On diagonals, not as good as either pure ...
  • For me the gold standard in testing focus speed and tracking is shooting continuous while working with my dogs at their "jobs" - herding and frisbee - or when they're playing hard.  The action ...
  • Niche-y camera, for sure, having an interchangeable lens rangefinder. Just happens to be a niche I like. I often shoot with both eyes open (DSLR or m4/3, no matter) so that I can see things...

  • I can tell you that the gap in performance - focus performance, viewfinder performance, handling (joystick etc) between the Xpro2 and Xpro1 is huge. Yes, $1200 huge. I own both, and I'm still...

  • Good friend of mine, who shoots political events for one of the major agencies, uses a Leica Q alongside his Nikon gear. The Nikon gear is for the times when he's been banished to the press pen...

  • Replied in No problem here
    I do upgrade my cards every couple of years, so almost all the ones I have are really new, and fast.  But I've got a couple old backup cards, and they're nowhere near 5 seconds for image review. Fi ...
  • My XPro2 hasn't arrived yet, but I have an XPro1, and the XT-1.  For wildlife, I'd probably favor the XT-1, because the optical rangefinder on the XPro1, for wildlife, would just be one more thing ...
  • The alignment of the projected frame lines and the actual result is very adjustable.  My XPro1 was, when I first got it, horrible on this, and I sent it in to Fuji.  When I got it back, it was ...
  • I started into the Fuji system back when the XPro 1 came out because I really wasn't loving the results I was getting from the m4/3 system.  They were quite good - I swept the ASMP show awards one ...
