  • Hitherto, I had the same impression. But, after spending some time looking at images made with the 9mm BCL at flikr, I'm impressed with what it can do. Did you follow the link in a preceding post ...
  • What a splendid series of city snow scenes.
  • ren7ee, it looks as though all you have to do to see a larger version of your images at Photobucket is click on one of them. Have you tried that?  If you have and still got a very small image on ...
  • Both images are very good, but I especially like the second one. Including the door (or cabinet?) on the right was an excellent composition choice, one that works better in the second image. While ...
  • Nice shots. The bridge and cornfield with truck images evoke memories of being in similar places at similar times and atmospheric conditions.
  • I was there also and couldn't agree more. Coincidental to this Kodak announcement and the above story, I picked up a Sony CX405 video camera. It's a well-received and popular model from 2013 if I...

  • I'm trying to remember ever hearing anyone long for the good old days of Super 8 movies, and drawing a blank. Even if the quoted prices are intended to be suggested list prices at introduction, ...

  • It's an OK picture of the place, if that's what you wanted to show. Composition wise, my eye looks for a strong center of interest in this image and gets drawn this way and that, because the bird, ...
  • Replied in Veritable fall
    Very nice shots. Great composition and handling of light. I'm glad you came away without serious injury. I hope your camera did as well.
  • ". . . I wondered if there was an internal battery in the camera somewhere that also goes flat when the main battery has been discharged for a while." There is. You might notice that when you get a ...
  • Forgive the nit-pick, but the quote you paraphrased was from President John F. Kennedy, in his 1960 inaugural address: "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you ...
  • Good observation. That has been the camera industry's game plan for a very long time. If you go through some photo magazines from the early 1950's to mid-1960's, you'll see how the industry ...
  • I have both. A year or so ago, IIRC, I bought an XZ-2 "refurb" from the Olympus Web site. (I put refurb in quotes because I'm convinced most of what they sell as refurbs are actually new products ...
  • Replied in Q7 sunset
    Both shots are great, but to my eye, the second one is Wow! great.
  • That's a very good DIY solution to an aggravating problem. The price is certainly right. ;) For sports, street and news photography, precise framing typically has a much lower priority than immediacy.
  • Replied in Steam train
    Terrific shot and a great subject for monochrome rendition. Given the atmospherics to the sides of the locomotive, was that a steam-powered turntable?
  • Thanks for the reply, EarthQuake. You're right, I'm probably being overly cautious. However, going by an experience with that seller years ago, in the '90's, I think, and from an Amazon customer's ...
  • Created question thread Opteka 6.5mm fisheye question
    47th Street Photo sells the Opteka 6.5mm fisheye for $159. Photos on the product pages at 47th Street's site and on that seller's page for the lens on Amazon show the micro four thirds version ...
  • Good deal. There was no doubt in my mind that if you got an EVF, you'd like it. I am a little surprised you went for the VF-3, but if it's doing the job and the price was right, congrats!
  • Replied in Clearview?
    "The VF-2 tends to be better than the VF-3, except it doesn't have a locking pin, and some people have lost theirs." I've heard of this problem but haven't experienced it with either of my VF-2's ...
