  • Hi Nick, 1. You can't change the lens on the G11 2. Yes, byuing even a low end dlsr will open up a new world. With it you end up with a) more shots b) better shots. Even the cheapest Canon or Nikon ...
  • Replied in Love them all
    Lovely shots, perferct processing. Vibrant and tack-sharp. I'd like to know how you process your images, Alan...? Kind regards, Bas
  • In particular it had a great jpeg engine and great colors and WB and good dynamic range (in jpeg). Got a lot of great shots with it, until it died. In hindsight it was a bit slow and heavy, but ...
  • Replied in Incredible
    It's as if I can feel the megacity atmosphere, somehow you captured that very very well. Great shots! I am looking at them for the second time now. Kind regards, Bas
  • Looks good to me! Nice pop without overdoing it. Colors look natural. Bas
  • Replied in Hi Alan
    Nice colors and processing as always. Compositionwise everything of interest is VERY central in the frame. That's not optimal IMO. Kind regards, Bas Hamstra
  • Replied in Not bad at all
    I don't know what you expect, but it looks good to me. Not worse than the average kitzoom (say olympus kitzoom, or canon kitzoom) and perhaps even a bit better. And that in a small package, well ...
  • Dude, this is a dslr killer, you have some REAL DOF control here!! Plus integrated EVF. Looks like a photographers camera. More people than ever can leave their heavy DSLR at home now. Beautiful ...
  • 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 ...
