  • I particularly like having a camera on my belt when I travel.  For many years that was an LX5/7.  Now I need an OVF so on my next trip I will have a Stylus 1S in that position. I have traveled ...
  • And I wish I had a nickel for every person who posts an impossibly vague question. But if I had a nickel for every time a well-considered and well-intentioned response to a poorly framed question ...
  • Why not audition cameras based on their output?  And I don't mean graphs and reviews, I mean actual images. There are lots of sound arguments to be made for this or that tech, spec, one model or ...
  • I completely agree.  Your photographic interests will guide you to along your ideal path, but a good general progression would be: O12-40pro > O45f1.8 > Samyang (or other) 7.5f3.5 > O60f2.8 If by ...
  • Beautiful! I thought the raptor taking flight was on the soft side until I looked at the claws.  Well done!  And thanks for showing what is possible with adapted lenses and great skill.
  • I'm on my third rear dial now.  They have been wonderful about repairing it, but in all my years of photography and my different cameras, this is the first to go in for service, ever.  I had hoped ...
  • I've used nothing but Windows for the last 18 years but my frustration with garbage screens and microsoft's business shenanigans drove me to get a macbook pro the other day, and I've come up to ...
  • As a hiker and traveler I can offer you this: for the best learning experience, the most keepers, and the lightest, most versatile kit I would take an LX7, a big card, a spare battery, and a tiny ...
  • I had the cheap panasonic lens and took some of my favorite photos with it.  Bear in mind I live where there is p-l-e-n-t-y of light. I now have the Opro, and absolutely love it in every respect ...
  • That was my goal too, and then I needed a back-up camera for when my EM1 was having its rear dial serviced, again, and then....and then....
  • It has been hard for me, an enthusiast, to learn to separate my emotional response to an image from my analysis of the technical characteristics that image.  But it's worth the effort.  As a rule ...
  • But before you dive too deeply into the frothing of yet another academic who has made a career out of indignation, you might might find it worth a moment of your  time to learn a bit about Prager ...
  • Those are wonderful. Thank you for sharing your pictures and thoughts.
  • Are you referring to the Nikon 200-500?  I was going to post a question for those more experienced than me whether the O300 has the potential to stand it's ground among the newer enthusiast VR ...
  • I would not consider going on a safari without an FZ300. Another camera, possibly m43 for portraits and landscapes in lowering light would be nice but completely secondary. So many people buy the ...
  • Continuing along the same direction as above, using luminance masks to balance what I've interpreted as the focal point. Is this anything like the scene as you recall it?  It is new and ...
  • As Reilly Diefenbacher wisely notes below, correcting the WB can make a big improvement.  Coming from a camera that has excellent auto-WB, I almost always overlook that correction.  Here's my ...
  • In my experience it's the eye and the imagination that set successful artists apart from everyone else. Practice and refinement of that creative conduit is the first, hardest, and best approach to ...
  • Here's my very quick/rough LR edit with explanatory details, offered only as a suggestion of directions you might be interested in exploring: My philosophy is to enhance landscape images toward ...
  • I grew up with my parents' awful frozen twist tripod legs and swore I would NEVER get one. So in my adulthood I tried a variety of Manfrotto tripods, all with some variety of lever or cam lock.  I ...
