    "I have made a 60" x 40" print from the V3 ...."
    So you said in an earlier post.... and also about a Ricoh camera a few months ago. Printing a lot of those 40 x 60's are you? you'd think...

  • So disappointing. As though bells and whistles will make up for spectacularly poor image quality. 76% is being charitable. And $900 for a fast 85mm equivalent? Please.

  • I forgot to mention - the only reason I would choose the Panny G5 over a "real dSLR" like my T3i - the lovely silent electronic shutter. An underappreciated feature for photography in music ...
  • I know this isn't the solution you want, but no one camera will do everything you need - kids are very challenging subjects and the memories you will want to document will require things like fast ...
  • OK pretty funny. Got me thinking, though, what pISO am I? Colin. -- Quot homines tot sententiae.
  • I've always wondered if simply restricting votes to "positive" votes - ie. " I like this one " - and the one with the most up votes wins - would prevent the type of sandbagging you are describing. ...
  • In the past I was a small business owner, and I checked in to a simple system to pipe music into a waiting room for clients. Yeah, you do have to pay royalties for each and every song played. The ...
  • Everybody's getting the nastygrams, theyre being generated by computer matching, probably the same kind of recognition software that's behind apps like Shazam and SoundHound. I get those notices ...
  • You got some great shots with that E-PL1, it really doesn't look like you need anything else. My question would be, what SPECIFICALLY would you want the new camera to be better at? I had trouble ...
  • The purpose of the new scene stated by DPR, as someone else also mentioned, was to improve the reproducibility of the captures, so that the differences were due to the camera and not missed focus ...
  • Interesting. My last trip to NYC in March I saw: (1) a whole bunch of cell phones being used as cameras. Less than I was expecting though; because:
  • I do not agree that it's ENTIRELY the photographer. It's the photographer AND access to the right equipment for the job at hand. I haven't read through this whole thread, so I may be repeating ...
  • It's a bit early to judge, there's nothing at the long end at all; it's pretty much a random collection of shots, from someone who likes the immediacy of wide angle.

    If these are truly...

  • I've had 2 cards go bad on me in the last 14 years; both were CF cards, one was a Transcend and the other a Sandisk. Both went bad within the first few times I used them, I was able to get most of ...
  • Get the Sony if the size matters to you. Get the D5100 if it doesn't; it's overall the best choice for lens selection and image quality. The J4 is relatively unknown at present; poor lens ...
  • I think the Canon SX160 and SX170 have been available in my local department store (around where I am - where are you?) for about $150; they're decent all-rounder point-n-shoots - a little big ...
  • I agree. Even my little pocket camera suffers from far to much complexity. That said, though, what features (other than the obvious "creative" modes) would you forego? I suspect your list will be ...
  • I think they took some pretty shots as well; looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. But.... show me a shot at f/1.2-2.0 with a corner (or even an edge!) in the...

  • I think they took some pretty shots as well - looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. And I can see what they meant about the bokeh - still not that...
