  • In reference to my previous post where LR was automatically cropping to my in-camera aspect ratio setting, I'm using an Oly camera.
  • Replied in mine does 2
    Yes, that's my experience with LR as well. If I shoot in camera using 3:2, LR converts the RAW to 3:2. I mainly shoot native 4:3 now and use DxO, so not sure if DxO functions that way, but LR ...
  • Size and weight of the camera and lenses, which is the primary reason I switched from a DSLR. Quality and selection of lenses would be way up on the list as well. IQ doesn't factor in whatsoever in ...
  • how can 5 stops not be useful??? If I had to list the reasons to own an oly camera, it would probably be #2 on my list.
  • Replied in Nice Post
    As someone who has way too much equipment for a snapshot shooter, I enjoyed watching this video.   The equipment I have now already exceeds my ability to use it. I've got 6mp pics hanging on my ...
  • Whoa, I enjoy a nice hike in the mountains, but I think when I reached the knife's edge, that may have been the end of the trail for me. That drop off to both sides would have necessitated a ...
  • My last film SLR camera I happily used for 15 years. Anyway, unless there's some significant advancement DR or high ISO, I don't see any need to upgrade from my e-m1 for a long time just to get a ...
  • Don't know if this helps, but when I bounce a flash off the ceiling or use a soft box I always up the flash exposure comp by +1.  I also shoot full on manual with shutter speed at 1/160 and ISO at ...
  • Yeah, gotta call BS on that one.  I've not seen such a comment from a legit review site.  If some bozo makes a comment on camera forum, why care? Fuji makes some nice equipment, and I've seen very ...
  • I own the em1, so I don't mind the hump.  I do get tired of pulling the cover off the hot shoe connector all the time.   Seems like every time I pull the camera out of the bang that hot-shoe cover ...
  • When I switched over to m43, I purchased the 12, PL25, OL45, and happily used them. The PL25 was and is my favorite lens IQ-wise. When the 75mm came out, I bought it as well - great great lens. I ...
  • DxO Prime is pretty amazing, IMO, and you can adjust it to taste.  My taste is probably less demanding than some, so I just click on Prime, leave it at default, and let it do it's thing.  Printing ...
  • I admittedly am more familiar with LR, so that may be part of my problem with DxO's highlight recovery.  DxO has a highlights slider as well, but I can't move it much at all without completely ...
  • I find DXO gives me much better detail by default.   I also find the images much cleaner/crisper with DXO.  Prime noise reduction is amazing, but only use it as needed as it takes much longer to ...
  • I got one of the decentered lenses.   The center and right side of an image are very sharp, but the entire left 3rd of an image is pretty soft.   As long as I don't pixel peep, it's okay, but ...
  • Replied in I miss my x-700
    What a great little camera. I used mine for roughly 12 years. Took it to Yellowstone in the winter. The -25F degree temperature froze it up solid. Never worked right again. Converted to digital ...
  • I don't have the 12-35mm, but my 12-40 is sharper than my 12. Well, they are fairly close in the center, but the 12-40 is definitely sharper in the corners. For sharpness this doesn't necessarily ...
  • To jump on the bandwagon here, the 12-40, and most all m43 lenses, are best from F4 to f8.  The 12-40mm is super sharp from f2.8 to f8.  With the DOF at 12mm you probably could have shot this pic ...
  • Olympus does often have a bundle discount where if you buy a camera and 12-40mm combo, you get $200 off.   I saw this recently.   I've seen it primarily with the e-m1, but I think they recently ...
  • Replied in Atlanta
    Actually it was the Buckhead BestBuy off Sidney Marcus and Piedmont.   They must be testing certain markets that have the cash to pay for the higher end equipment.   For mirrorless, they have a ...
