Jon Schick's recent activity

  • The Four Thirds sensor is also large enough for an optical VF.  Sadly Olympus crippled most of their cameras with a tunnel, but he E-3 and E-5 were honourable exceptions with 100% view in a nice ...
  • Replied in X30 portraits
    Recent photo taken with the X30, Classic Chrome with a bit of PP when I got back home:
  • I suspect that Mr Wormsmeat may have calculated that he could out-run the subject!
  • Lovely image
  • Replied in Bloodless Moon
    Really like that - so much more interesting that moon captures in a cloudless sky.  It's all happening around 3am here in London and I have to get to work tomorrow morning so not sure that I'm ...
  • You're right but in the end I deliberately didn't.  I was looking for something closer to a silhouette (I was there quite early and actually the photo is already already selectively brightened up ...
  • Replied in Genoa
    Nice images - you had better weather than my dismally wet trip to Genoa a few years back!  The second one really caught my eye.  Did you get to nearby Portofino?
  • Replied in Chairs
    Nicely composed and colourful image - and I think all the better for a bit of wear and tear on the purple chair and table top.
  • Been posted in other threads recently but not here on the m43 forum.  First a couple of shots yesterday from the E-M1, followed by some photographs from Manchester and Bristol using the D Lux (Typ ...
  • Replied in re Richmond Park
    Hi Andrew, Thanks - there are quite a few deer in the park (which is massive) and free to roam.  Sometimes it takes a while to find them but not this time! Jon
  • Lovely - please leave some of the dry weather quota for the first weekend in November, when I'm coming up for a weekend landscape photography course in Glencoe!
  • Replied in Richmond Park
    It's been a while since the E-M1 was taken out, because I've been away and decided to take only a compact camera (which turned out to be a good decision). Still, it's nice to reacquaint myself ...
  • Created discussion thread A few random D Lux (Typ 109) images
    Somehow I've not quite managed to click with the D Lux but that's probably more about me than the camera.  In part I wish it was a bit speedier to switch on, and I'd much prefer a manual zoom, but ...
  • If budget is an issue you might also consider the Sigma lenses - 19, 30 and 60.  They were reviewed on this site not so long ago and represent tremendous value for money.  The 17mm and 25mm have a ...
  • Surprised they're in business? Arguably the best bang for buck APSC dSLRs available and a very successful medium format camera they can't make enough of that outsells the rest of its competitors...

  • The strategy of making a well-priced version of an existing well-regarded lens makes sense to me - and if Pentax offer this as the kit lens rather than a slower f3.5-5.6 or constant f4 offering,...

  • Replied in Thanks both
    Over time I've begun to enjoy street and people photography more and more.  And it's something the X30 is rather good at; quiet and discrete, with quick AF and that helpful tilting rear LCD - it's ...
  • Created discussion thread X30 in St Petersburg
    I've a lot of images to go through but thoroughly enjoyed a recent 12 day trip through the Baltics where I left all the interchangeable lens stuff at home and just took the X30 with a spare ...
  • I don't know if you can stretch to an E-M1 but I find the handling an awful lot better than the E-M5 I had previously - mainly because the grip is so much better and the improved function controls ...
  • Enjoy them!  With the improved post processing software available now, you can get results that weren't possible when it came out, and with care you can now venture up the ISO range to an extent ...
