  • I think this article throws into sharp relief the need for some sort of ISO type standard, for equivalence. Of course, it should be based on 35mm, because that's what everyone uses. Every lens,...

  • @mosc What is wrong with having one of each? I'm also on record, within these pages, as suggesting Olympus or Panasonic should be producing both a zoom (to compete with the X Vario), and a fixed...

  • @theSUBVERSIV - It might help to read what I wrote from start to finish (and the worlds from left to right).

  • [SADGEARHEAD]So, does this finally give Canon some degree of parity with the Sony sensors that have been handing Canon their ass, over the past few years?[/SADGEARHEAD]

  • Ok, I'm on record as saying, in these pages, that the LX100 would never get a Leica badge due to being too close to the X Vario. The compromises make me think otherwise. My take? Panasonic or...

  • The best APS-C sensors have been more or less the same 16 and 24mp Sony sensors, for some time now. Sensor tech has hit a (a perfectly pleasant) wall. Has Samsung just demolished that wall?

  • Be happy. Few lenses give more bang for the buck than the lens you have.

  • Last time I checked, it was FT5 and the photos of the camera looked real.  If Panasonic have got the lens right, you're looking at something considerably more effective than the Leica Vario X, for ...
  • Perhaps I did.  As a sovereign entity, that's my choice to make. When people argue over principles such as the ethics of street photography, they often forget there's more than one principle at ...
  • Though I was surprised to find its uses stretched far beyond portraiture.  It's a lovely lens that's cheap as chips (by FT standards) and has amazing optics for the money.
  • And I'll explain this with an example.  Consider this: I also caught another, better framed shot, from the same spot, with skateboarder going by.  I would say he would have been recognisable, from ...
  • At least that's my first thought.  In some ways it may be a better camera than the Vario (and IQ wise, there's very little between the latest Four Thirds sensors, and APS-C, at least at lower ...
  • This is the shadow of the large observation wheel, in Piccadilly Gardens.  In good light, it falls on different buildings depending on the time of day. Shadow of Wheel, ©2014 Jason Hindle Here's an ...

  • If it's very shallow depth of field you want, full frame may be more economical.  If you look at the one f1.2 lens available for the Four Thirds format, its a big premium to pay for a modest ...
  • Replied in Lone Tree
    It's lovely.  Couple of thoughts.  The sky is very much the signature blue of the newer, 16mp cameras.  Is this from the JPEG (or Olympus viewer 3)?  By trying a different raw converter, you may ...
  • He was a great actor; looks like he's following his dreams now.  Nice shots BTW.
  • You could draken the skies a little, and perhaps add a little extra clarity to the sky only.  Apple's almost defunct Aperture does this really well, since the shadow and highlights (which can be ...
  • Here's a photo of this year's Manchester Pride Parade, taken from a distance.  I like events like this.  With the road closures, they allow you to take photos from positions not normally ...
