  • I just received my DP2Q last week and absolutely love it.  I am not the least bothered by the relatively short battery life.  Sometimes the slow write to card time annoys me a little.  When I look ...
  • Created discussions First Pictures from new DP2Q
    These are the first pictures I have taken with my DP2Q.  I was really lucky to buy it when Amazon had it for $649.  It was through 47th Street Camera and I was a little nervous about purchasing it ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thank you Johan.  I tried the toned down Vivid mode and liked it.  I have come up with another question.  I like having the level in the LCD but I would like to get rid of the histogram.  My menu ...
  • Created questions Just Got My New DP2Q
    I was a little worried because the price of $649 on Amazon seemed too good to be true.  It is here and all we have had is rain, rain, rain.  Took a few pictures between the rain drops...seems a ...
  • Several years ago, before having heart surgery, I was becoming exhausted carrying around my DSLR and lenses.  I decided to try m43 and bought a Panasonic GF1...it was wonderful, photography became ...
  • I am nervously awaiting my DP2 Quattro that I ordered yesterday from Amazon before this was posted.  I am reminded of the saying, "if it is too good to be true it probably is not true".  I do not ...
  • I was looking on Amazon and the price of the DP2 Merrill and the DP2 Quattro had dropped.  The Quattro was $649.00.  I decided to "go for it" and I am excitedly waiting for it to arrive in a few ...
  • I am totally happy with the Panny GX7 camera.  The more I read about the Sigma DP Merrill cameras, the more I am tempted to have one as a second camera.  I absolutely use this forum as a resource ...
  • I am in this forum because I am so tempted to by the DP Merrill.  Your pictures are beautiful and have just about pushed me over the edge.  I have been an avid photography hobbyist since I was a ...
  • I have found the GX7 and GM1 to be an excellent combination.  Could not be happier. Hal
  • Replied in NX30 or DSLR?
    Not true.....I have used it for years.  I have used it in extremely bright and sunny conditions.  I have seen many many posts on the micro four thirds forum about it and this is the first time I ...
  • Replied in NX30 or DSLR?
    I just happened to be on this forum and might have a very inexpensive answer to your question.  I am a m43 user and the first camera I bought was the Panasonic GF1 which had no viewfinder.  I read ...
  • I have been more than happy with all of my Panasonic purchases and am a happy repeat customer.  Unfortunately, they have no marketing ability whatsoever.  With just halfway decent marketing, they ...
  • Created questions Sigma DPMerrill cameras
    I have been tempted for the last three years to buy a Sigma DP Merrill camera but have been unable to pull the trigger.  Since the recent price decrease, I am really ready to buy.  I have been ...
  • Replied in What if ...?!
    If I could take only 2 lenses with my Panasonic GX7, they would definitely be the 14-140II and the 20mm 1.7.  I would miss the 12-35 2.8 but it would be my third choice. Hal
  • Photography is a major source of enjoyment in life for me.  My first m43 camera was the GF1.  It allowed me to enjoy photography again.  It was a perfect sized body with very nicely sized lenses ...
  • My son-in-law travels extensively in his job and he packs only what is necessary in order to have only carry-on baggage.  He wants to avoid waiting for his baggage and possible lost or damaged ...
  • I could see it coming.  As the airlines crown more and more people on to each plane, the overhead luggage compartment space is getting more and more challenged.  This morning I saw where they are ...
  • My first camera was a rangefinder 35mm camera which my father bought for me in 1956.  It was a Kodak Retina IIIC.  I still have the camera in perfect working order.  It was my favorite camera ...
