  • In 2005, Apple discontinued its best selling iPod mini and replaced it with the iPod nano - a device that was smaller, sleeker, and more durable. The result was that Apple continued to dominate...

  • 2003 - Sony Ericsson T610i (early cameraphone, 320 x 240 res!). Retired. 2003 - Olympus D560 (got it in college). Retired, on display in my camera museum. 2008 - Sony Ericsson K810 (3.2 mp of ...

    I shoot with two E-PM2 bodies and balance the 14-54II, a 135mm f/2.8, and all of my native primes including the 75mm off of those cameras. Yes, the E-M1 is more comfortable, but a small,...

  • Replied in Thanks!
    Yeah, the 12-40 is significantly smaller than the 14-54, about 1" shorter, nearly 1/2" smaller diameter, and over 100 g lighter when you factor in the adapter. Not sure why people call the 12-40 a ...
  • You haven't said what kind of images you shoot. Generally, at this stage, with the M10 and the M5 II using the same sensor and the same processor, you won't really get better images out of a new ...
  • Thanks. Indoor shooting is definitely possible and probable if I'm asked to record speeches/dances at receptions again. That said, I'm not sure I'd expect to regularly shoot above f/1.8 ...
  • Ok, so after doing some research, these are the options that seem to pop up. I'm assuming I'll be getting either an external microphone or a dedicated audio recorder for any of these options, and ...
  • Bring a polarizer, lens hoods, and find a wide lens. You're not going to have a lot of room to shoot in the palace and temples in Bangkok, and I found I was limited at 28mm eFL. It's going to be ...
  • The DPReview review says that the E-M1 has an LCD finder, same unit as the Fuji X100s. One thing to be aware of is that the E-M1's finder has higher magnification than the E-M10 II's, which is ...
  • Interesting thought, but I don't think I can ask them for money - if they could afford a photographer/videographer for the whole event, they would've sprung for one. I'm willing to do this as a ...
  • GH3s still run in the $500+ range, which is more than I'd want to spend at the moment. A GX7 and a GH2 are close in price, but I'd lean towards a GX7 personally - if I get bored of the video stuff, ...
  • I'm debating that bit. I can apparently get a basic Tascam audio recorder for <$100, which should alleviate that problem and allow me to place the camera further away/in a less obtrusive location, ...
  • I don't personally think I would buy a separate grip - at least, not if it's just a piece of plastic. If an accessory grip added some other functionality, like extra battery power, function button,...

  • I haven't researched sound recorder or microphones yet, as this started out as more of a photo/video centric GAS attack, but as I'm researching and learning, I think I would want to pick up a few ...
  • For something like a wedding, I'd be worried about low light, and I'm not sure a small sensor like in the JVC would cut it for that. Ideally, I'd like to be able to use the glass I already have. Sa ...
  • Oh, I guess it's the GF3 onwards that ditched the hotshoe, good to know. Do you know if the hack can be applied to the GF3? I could borrow my girlfriend's to play with in the meantime. Also, are ...
  • But no way to add a viewfinder to a GF2, right? Only the GF1. The viewfinder was useful when I was doing panning shots in the afternoon sun, while the other body was on the tripod pointed at the ...
  • Hej! And that about exhausts my command of Swedish - your English is definitely much better than most Americans' Swedish... or any other language. Have you thought about manual lenses? For example, ...
  • Created discussions Cheap Used Body for Video
    I attended a wedding this past weekend, and the happy couple asked one friend and one family member to do the candid shooting for the event. As the friend-with-cameras, I was happy to oblige. The ...
  • Replied in PM2 versus GM1
    When I bought my PM2s, viewfinder and hotshoe were two features that I didn't think I would use, but they are now two of the biggest strengths of my current setup. Just this past weekend, I was ...
