  • The last time I went to a reputable camera store and was served by a knowledgable sales person was about 1970.  To stem the inevitable demise of the brick-and-mortar store, the knowledgable camera ...
  • Yes they do, and they have the experience and the volume and profitability to prove they're getting it right and they know it. Successful online retailers do not have generous return policies ...
  • This forum especially so closely resembles Dante's Divine Comedy that I've been tempted to suggest that some wag might want to write a parallel epic poem. We need a Virgil to guide us through the ...
  • http://samgoldphotos.blogspot.com/2015/02/user-review-coco-ring-flash.html Weird that the link doesn't work in the caption like that.
  • Yup. Agree. Me too. Not at all. I was a diehard Panasonic user when I needed to shoot video and I've had a succession of Panasonic bodies and lenses with which I have been extremely happy for their ...
  • I should add, too, that a lot can depend on your relationship with your gear. By which I mean, if you are learning a new camera or lens, you'll probably be experimenting more with them and taking ...
  • Photography is about seeing, I'm sure you will agree. I was once in the "keep ruthlessly" crowd.  I told myself lots of things to justify this, like, "Memory is cheap," "There might be something in ...
  • On the wider internet I agree, but here, HERE!, on a photography forum, it is a fascinating reveal to the general ignorance of  pretty much everyone who chimes in.
  • Created discussions TG 3s are disappearing...
    Well darn, I was thinking I might finally make the decision to get a TG3. I'm pretty well kitted out with lenses and cameras, but my wife's TG1 with its grab-and-splash versatility is really a lot ...
  • I'm not sure what you are asking.  What do you mean by "long"?  I believe the longish fast zoom to be necessary in the line-up and have purchased the m43 40-150/2.8 accordingly. How important is a ...
  • Thank you. As with Sadie's post above your pics are very helpful.
  • Thank you Sadie for going to the effort of those pics. I am facing the same question and you have helped a lot. It's a thousand miles between me and a place where I can try these possibilities out.
  • Yes that would be a useful piece of information but I don't see how one could arrive at an accurate number. Approaching the problem from a different (less useful but still significant) direction, ...
  • It would have been nice if the EM1 rear dial had lasted long enough to try the camera with the 40-150 lens I ordered concurrently.
  • Yes.  Mine is 6 weeks old, and purchased from a high-volume seller, so I'm reasonably certain that it is as current a production model as one could ask for.
  • All kidding aside, I wonder how many and what type of people have moved "up" vs "down" in camera systems (where "up and down" refer to camera and sensor size, since that seems to be a fixation for ...
  • Thanks to all. I packed mine up to return and got a return authorization. But before I sent it off I unpacked it to try one last time and crazily it worked. No idea what I did differently. Fickle ...
  • I thought I'd try one of the cheap as chips YN 560III flash units and so ordered one which arrived today. I put in the batteries (two sets) and no power up.  Holding the power button for the ...
  • Created discussions Congratulations Bob Tullis!
    Your image is featured by Olympus on G+... Linky, I thinky. It was a familiar sight, as I studied and learned a great deal from your original posting of it here on DPR.  Well done and thanks!
  • I've heard that the EM5 has a slight advantage in astrophotography too, but I haven't seen anything that proves the point.  There are some wonderful wide field astrophotos from the EM1/5/10 out ...
