  • And that's not a big issue.  i have a large Epson photo printer and can process everything from Lightroom/PS (since I upload all my cards for organization into Lightroom) for printing.  I do very ...
  • Replied in Last update
    I now have added the Richard Franiec grip which adds just that little bit better handling for me, the Kaiser hood which definitely makes shooting w/o an EVF much better to deal with.  Thanks for ...
  • Kind of agree with you.  I had considered a possibility of considering a Panny again when I wanted to replace EM5 (def. down the road since I'm happy with it) as I could see improvements.  Just a ...
  • No, haven't yet since I, like you, have always been RAW shooter.  I started with the G1, GF1, G3 and couldn't use jpeg with any of them.  I will have to try on your recommendation.  Thanks.
  • Got it, like it very much.  I bought the Kaiser hood for viewing in sunlight and it works very well.  I have had a bunch of Panny m4/3s and my EM5 is first Oly but I do enjoy shooting with ...
  • This is closer to how I work--if I had a Mac I think it would be integrated a lot more but I'm a long time Windows user and just had a new very fast PC built for me last year specifically for ...
  • Replied in And a bit more
    Thanks.  I've had the 45-200 since it came out and though I'm not a "long" shooter it has been a decent lens.  Bigger than the 45-150 which makes a difference with the GM1--and I've read the ...
  • Somewhere I mentioned this but ICYMI, I was looking forward to using the wifi with my Ipad or Iphone.  What I found is that I can use my old Camera Connector I've been using for 4+ years to ...
  • Replied in And a bit more
    Since I appear to be a GM1 convert, I'll have continuing interest in what lenses people are using with it.  Be sure and share your new lens with us.
  • Certainly the small size relative to the EM5--photos didn't do the difference justice.  IQ didn't surprise me because I already knew what to expect--but it still surprises because you feel like ...
  • I've had all Panny bodies since G1 and they all have had those dumb battery doors LOL-- I didn't break any.  I expect the GM1 to hold up until sometime down the road its time to replace.  I've had ...
  • Replied in And a bit more
    After two days with the GM1 I learned that using wifi to transfer to my Ipad isn't worth the trouble and I've set AEL to that Fn 1 button.  In the time spent fiddling with setting it, back to app, ...
  • No, a quick look at the manual gave me the direction when it wouldn't respond to how I thought it should work.  I was surprised it wasn't intuitive (actually it was, just not that 'force') but I ...
  • I can only remember the substandard accessory EVF for the GF1 and would only want one that was much better than that one.  If it would increase size, I'd stick with the GM1---at this point just ...
  • Got my GM1 today and I have to say I'm impressed.  Got my Kaiser hood too which works great for me.  I'll use it when I need but its light, thin enough to carry along (remember I'll have in a ...
  • I don't know what the best adapter is now--I finally sold all my Canon gear, FF, etc this Spring.  Basically you have to set aperture, etc. with the EF lens on an EOS body.  You then remove the ...
  • Replied in Boo hoo?
    Bob gave good advice,  I'd add never pay a premium for anything like this.  Its bound to bite you in the end.
  • Replied in And I'm sorry
    I didn't add anything useful to the conversation.  I suppose what I'm saying is that for me the song and dance using Lightroom Mobile just isn't worth it.  I have a number of large SD cards and ...
  • I've used both Lightroom since beta - and the Ipad since Ipad1 with Camera Connector.  I tend to be a bit lazy on these things LOL so I just upload to Ipad (I have plenty of room on the 128 GB ...
  • Please post your feelings about the two.  Armlength shooting doesn't appeal to me but I've adapted my stance to deal with the Iphone LOL--had to do the same with the GF1, a camera I enjoyed except ...
