  • Great place. However you didn't seem to ski down? We did that with 2 guides, it was a peak experience for me. Bas
  • In your example the boy looks very very sick in the Nikon shot. Maybe your monitor is tuned way too magenta and on your monitor the Nikon looks better. But then your monitor is basically tuned ...

    Having fun with EPL5 at the school yard: Bas
  • Replied in EPL1 is fine..
    Here in Holland the EM-10 is sold as a kit with the 14-42EZ pancake zoom. That's probably cheaper than buying seperately. But otherwise: yes, buy the body only, you already have the lenses. You ...
  • Replied in EPL1 is fine..
    But the newer 16MP sensor found in OMD-EM5, EM10, EPM2, EPL5 is a bit better, especially at higher ISOs. My advice would be to take a good look at the OMD-EM-10 with pancake zoom. It's a beauty ...
  • Because there was a lot of them...! Bas
  • I got one cheap too to find out what FF was about and to have 50 mm function as 50 mm in stead of 80. It was/is a revelation, back to the feeling of the film days. And because I got it for 400EUR ...
  • RX100 III colors from latest sames look a bit weird, with the purplish blues. But RX10 seems to be a lot better (or the owners are better at PP). Bas
  • Replied in Thanks all
    Hi Kim, In fact I buy a lot of cams used, just got an S90 for 80 EUR, with extra battery and belt-pouch (easy to wear while skating). Right now I have an option on a used EPL5 for 300EUR, I think I ...
  • Replied in Thanks all
    I see that in the USA the EMP2 goes for 199$ via some weird ebay construction, and I admit that's a no brainer. But no such luck in Holland, where EPM2 and EPL5 go both for around 400EUR. ...
  • Created questions EPM2 or EPL5?
    My EPL1 died (LCD cracked after drop). So I am looking for replacement, with the better 16MP sensor. I a in doubt between EPL5 and EPM2 (price nor far apart). The EPM2 is a bit lighter, but I am ...
  • Not quite happy with 5D colors, often the colors seem a bit weird and slightly off and not how I remember the scene. I only shoot RAW with 5D, BTW. The AWB seems often a bit too cold. The thing ...
  • Replied in Enormous...
    It's a world of difference, RX100-III has twice the IQ. It must be, since it's twice the price... But to be serious,if it's a bit better than the Mark-2 lens, we are lucky, don't expect wonders. Bas
  • I have mostly Canon gear (some Pana and Oly too and no Sony yet). But Sony is the real innovator and the compact camera king nowadays. It seems Sony is far ahead and the rest has trouble to follow :-)
  • Hi Jerry, I am just interested in a small carry always cam that's REALLY better than what's has been the standard for small cams, while stilll in the S90 size department. However if there appears a ...
  • I always thought my Canon 5D (mark 1) has some mysterious extra clarity viewed at 100% when compared to APS-C or MFT. I can't explain it, but it's as if the image has more detail EVEN if it's not ...
  • I'm a Canon guy, but Sony is the real innovator. Big respect for RX100 and A7/A7R. To have typical dslr+kitlens performance (and funcionality) at a size not much bigger than Canon S90 is totally ...
  • The 16-50 kitlens seems to be horrible (is is even possible to find a reasonable performing kitlens that is not huge, and therefore destroys the purpose of a small cam?) so what can we expect if ...
  • The RX100 is not much bigger than the S90, so small and light it fits in a shirt pocket. The V1 is only small without lens and even without lens it's bigger than the RX100. Bas
  • Replied in Can you try
    Focus and then recomposing can cause issues. Try to do the same shot without any recomposing. Focus on a spot on a newspaper placed at 45 degrees and shoot without recomposing. See if the issue is ...
