Skipper494: Why M4/3 is pushed, over an APS-C is beyond me. That's like preferring a VW over a BMW.
does that mean the bmw like 135 full frame would be plagued with electrical problems?
Thank you so much for posting these, I love this stuff. My own family collection is 20 years after this and am in the process of scanning them - but most are BW and i do wish my mother had been able to afford a better camera than the box brownie
the fall of 2015 - that would be 'Autumn' in 2015 in the UK I guess
I have had two mirror less cameras. The G3 and the xpro1. Wish someone would design a sliding panel to 'shield' all the buttons on the LH side. This one, like the G3 i had has too many opportunities to bump things. Xpro is similar. I built a thumbs rest the covered the buttons from accidentals and still allowed access. It works, but is a stop gap.
jderrico: Isn't it strange that with so many improvements in the camera capabilities of these cell phones, I still see many people walking around in their front yards, driveways, and streets trying to pick up a signal to talk on their phone? Wouldn't it be easier to build cell phones into regular cameras? You'd still have people trying to get a signal, but at least they wouldn't have to worry so much about their picture taking capabilities. Wouldn't it be easier to put a cell phone in a camera than the other way around?
Brilliant idea! Or just make the phone big enough to put a real camera in it!
We have a 3.2 canon sure shot (?) that my wife still uses it. Over the years, at postcard size jpg' its image has proven to be almost impossible to tell from either hi end film or digital cameras used at the same time in the same conditions. I assume that most people take snaps with their phones. Good on 'em. Nothing wrong with snapping. For hi end images tho, you need a hi end (real) camera with a similar lens.
Dionis: Original Size does not mean original quality. I have been using Picasa for years (still do) and used to upload original sizes. I have looked into every possible setting so the file would look its best online. The compression process when uploading reduces sharpness and brightness even when using Lightroom.
I have looked at many online albums (fee and free ones) and I have not seen any I would consider high resolution. It seems like the equivalent of posting videos to You Tube or Vimeo.
I have been using flickr for a while now, it does similar things, I have posted some wide pans and the quality is a bit poor. I had been thinking of looking elsewhere s,o i am glad to hear your info
