  • Created discussions Retina as a PP platform?
    I travel full time (retirement!) so portability is a must.  I have used MacBook for 6 or 7 years now, and currently am on a 15" Retina about 1 year old.  I am starting to spend more time PP'ing ...
  • Unfortunately, I did.  Thought the LX100 would give me the same but more, and it did, but the form factor was not what I wanted. I had a good one with a nice leather case, adapter ring and some ...
  • Created discussions For me, LX100 got too big
    My pocket camera has been an LX7. Well, not exactly pocket, but it fits in a jacket pocket. Got so excited by the LX100 I ordered one, as there is no place to personally see one where I live. Got ...
  • On the DPR D750 review, page 5, third image down shows the effect of matrix metering vs highlight weighting vs. highlight weighting plus ADL and so on.  Looks pretty effective. However, in thinking ...
  • Just for clarification: does this picture have the head attached?  Looks like it may have but I just want to be sure. I find the most onerous thing about tripods is the many latches just to set it ...
  • I just bought this from another user and it is used but in very good condition. But, its just a little too large for my m43 gear.  So, selling for a low price on a quality bag. Really good shape. ...
  • Fortunately, we all can have our own opinions.  Having owned one for some 2 years and paying under $200 for another 2 years (and I have a full warranty for 2 more years), and knowing the excellent ...
  • First, I had to re-examine why I want this camera.  It is a supplement to my m43 gear, not a prime photo instrument. Therefore, going up in size doesn't make sense.  So form factor for the XF1 +1. ...
  • Created discussions X30 vs. LX100
    So I sold my LX7 and my XF1 crapped out on me.  I had ordered and just received an LX100 and it seems like a nice piece of gear.  I have some time that I can try out the camera and return it, ...
  • Baron, that is a terrific suggestion.  The Lumix Link is a little sparse compared to Image App, but IT WORKS!  I tested it and yes indeed, it will store location data and send it to the camera. I ...
  • Replied in My XF1 crashed
    Per my call to Fuji Support, the XF1 is no longer supported under warranty.  They will fix it if you send it in and they will provide a quote.  But as cheap as they are today, I'd sooner buy one new. ...
  • Although I have a tripod, I don't use it much.  I travel extensively (retired, you know!) and they tend to get in the way.  So my history is always handheld, or braced on a fixed object.  However, ...
  • The remote control works fine so communication is not the issue.  Just access to the GPS data. When I had my EM1 the geotagging worked perfectly but I was unable to remote control.. There was an ...
  • Good suggestion, but installing and running App Ops requires you to root the device, something I am not prepared to do. Also not sure if this is valid or not, since every other app that uses GPS ...
  • Created discussions My XF1 crashed
    After about 5,000 clicks my XF1 apparently crashed.  First, every once in a while, whe  I turned on the camera, I got a message "FOCUS ERROR".  After recycling the power, it oukd go back and ...
  • Created discussions X30 and wide angle adapters?
    Is there any add-on wide angle adapter to widen up some what? I know there was one for the X100 series, but that was a different animal.... The X30 looks great as a travel camera, the long end is ...
  • I reported this a few months ago, but the thread died quickly.  But since Image App is used by all models (at least on my GX7, GH4 and now LX100) I think this is becoming a valid issue.  I like to ...
  • I have a near new Olympus 17mm f1.8 in original box with manuals etc., just like a brand new one. Would like to trade for a Panasonic Lumix 15mm f1.7 in similar condition. Nothing wrong with the ...
  • Thanks for checking this out.  Just unpacked my LX100 yesterday, so I still have a lot to check out but certainly how it handles ISO in various configurations will be most important to know.
