  • This was my first thought.  I recently bought an XE-1 with the kit lens at the discontinued price and am pretty impressed with it so far.
  • I just bought an X-E1 this week after my Canon D40 broke.  It's my first mirrorless, so these are mainly test shots of a few things along with an early evening walk around an arboretum.  I also ...
  • Funny reading this, as I'm going through a similar thing right now. I was using my Canon 40D on my birthday and wound up breaking it.  Repair will cost more than they go for on the used market, and ...
  • I believe the guitar story is usually attributed to Chet Atkins.  And from what little I know of BB King, saying that sounds out of character for him. Anyway, I usually say "Thank you" when someone ...
  • So I can attempt to capture how I view the world and possibly share that vision.  And because it's fun.
  • The software you received with the camera should have a RAW converter. Maybe this will help: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/PanasonicDMCGH2/13 If you bought a used/demo and did not receive the ...
  • I've only seen a few, but it wasn't the opinion that I had issues with; in fact, I prefer a reviewer to give a solid opinion. But I think they should also give enough information to help the ...
  • Isn't this the company to which GoPro sent a DMCA notice for using its artwork while not being an authorized seller, so DigitalRev tried to make it look like the notice was in response to a review ...
  • Thanks.  I've been looking to regularly take photos again, decided on a DSLR and figured I'd start with something good and used for a good basic system.  At this point I'm not as keen as I used to ...
  • i recently bought an excellent condition used 40D for around $270, as it works with my Canon EF lenses (I have film SLRs) and am so far pretty impressed. I've not been able to use it as much as I ...
  • The lab I used is gone, sadly, but Ilford has a mail order lab: http://www.ilfordlab-us.com/ . I haven't tried them, but it is Ilford.
  • I could do a lot of further analysis, and it's clear you're done a lot, but I think it comes down to a few things.  Both cameras are excellent, so I don't think there's a wrong choice.  The best ...
  • In your position I would likely look at the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and E-M1 as well as the Fuji X-E2 and possibly X-E1 (recently replaced by the X-E2).  Then I'd probably pick the one that felt the ...
  • I second this.  Also, I don't know how you're shooting, but watch what the shutter speed is or even set shutter priority and set it high enough to capture your subject and be okay when handheld ...
  • My question, too.  Also, do you have much familiarity with cameras, and what kind?  And are you interested in learning and using the controls and seeing what you can create or are you more ...
  • Replied in Is it?
    Thanks. I'll add a couple links: http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2014/jan/01/agency-photographer-goran-tomasevic http://lightbox.time.com/2013/12/10/muhammed-muheisen-time-picks-the ...
  • Replied in Haha...
    Oops. I didn't mean to start a discussion on the insanity of audiophiles.  But yes.  When I was a musician and mastering engineer I met and dealt with a lot of them.  Since I'm picky about sound, ...
  • As you seem to be aware, camera design has to take into account a lot of compromises, particularly between the respective size of the camera, sensor and lens(es).  I'd talk to her about what she ...
  • I'm not entirely clear on what you're asking, but the professionals I know all shoot digital, a few of which have never shot film.  The two who do still use film mainly do so for their personal ...
  • High end audio can be fascinating. There is a lot of gear for reasonable prices that can really make a playback system come alive, but some people go off the deep end. As in the turntable alone ...
