  • I found getting that critical moments of a baby's expression is actually more difficult than I thought. The main culprit that introduces the longest delay in preventing me getting the picture ...
  • Face detect is crucial for me, because I shoot video and stills and my subject is always on the move, there is no time to focus and recompose.
  • Are you using the same lens to compare? While I don't have the GH3, I found that GH2 face detect and tracking are more accurate with 25mm f/1.4 Pany compared to 19mm f/2.8 Sigma, particularly in ...
  • Replied in From Olympus...
    Here's one from Olympus. http://www.olympusamerica.com/crm/oneoffpages/crm_holiday_lights.asp?utm_content=tips&utm_campaign=novtips_ca&utm_source=email_etprm&utm_medium=email
  • The GH2 was an open box purchase (i.e. returned item), but came from a reputable camera company here, Henrys. I was not quite sure why I did not follow up on that issue any further. Perhaps ...
  • I just bought a GF3+lens bundle last Friday and was surprised to see that there was no cap in the box other than the objective lens cap. :( Does Panasonic ever include body and lens mount caps with ...
  • Unless I pixel peep, I have no problem with GH2 high ISO. This is a picture of fishes in a dark aquarium. I set the high ISO limit to 3200, but other than that, I have no complain. The camera ...
  • Replied in Busted...
    There is apparently a cop among the riders. Also the Go Pro is not the only camera capturing the event, which makes sense, many businesses have surveillance camera systems running. http://gma.yahoo ...
  • If the sound can be picked up by the microphones, it is not good for video. The page from Panasonic website has this in the older model's description: With Silent Design for HD Movie Recording The ...
  • I bought the m4/3 version because I need the continuous AF to work for both the still and the motion pictures in face detection, although I don't mind the size and weight of the 4/3 version with ...
  • Perhaps it is the lens fault then, as in troubleshooting 101: If one component is replaced completely and the problem stays, the bug is in the component not replaced. The PDAF sensor is completely ...
  • E-M1 should be sharper because of the lack of AA filter. It does introduce a potential moire problem though. Look at this picture from Ming Thein blog: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7352/9669825370 ...
  • To me it is just a reflection that they did not do a thorough testing.  For example, they obviously did not test nor make a report on how the AF performance of D4 and 1DX compares to the AF ...
  • I agree. It is a good news indeed. This is one thing that no camera relying on traditional PDAF sensors/modules can do.  So this is one advantage over DSLRs out there.
  • Replied in Convergence
    What I think is happening is convergence of the media on which the outputs of both still and motion pictures are shown, and the camera manufacturers being aware of this, are responding. People are ...
  • Replied in Kids
    For me personally, that is where it is used for. I suspect that is where it is used for in a family settings. There are just certain aspect of a situation that still pictures could not capture. ...
  • Of course not. But, that's both the beauty and the challenge of it. Waiting for the right moment to hit the shutter button and capture them unposed and candidly.  It is very much like street ...
  • Your lenses should be fine for now, you can use any one of them. Babies are not moving too fast before they are able to walk, so you don't have to worry too much about shutter speed. To get good ...
  • It is hard to do this with software only, because you are missing the third dimension data, namely distance, or z axis. However, it could be possible in the future generation. Some pixels in the ...
