Gerry Siegel's recent activity

  • Commented on E' la Belle Epoque in the A portrait in Corcos style challenge

    Lovely soft lighting and simplicity of style works for this young lady. Nice indeed.

  • Dewi, I have a gut feeling you will find the feel and handling of an EM-1 with the promotional grip combination more to your liking. Yes, buy the more recent model which Olympus tested and decided ...
  • I am surmising that some discovered stereo by the route of the Stereo Realist, the Kodak Stereo or even the upper crust model by Jules Richard.    I have a nice collection and I rather enjoy ...
  • I would highly recommend you look at the comments below the review on the front page for Sony Apha 7 II and sweeps in all like cameras not excluding the micro 4/3 range.  They all have more in ...
  • Try the original Schneider Velociraptor F 1:2. A real dinosaur that one, and prized by collectors of legacy uncoated  and orphaned optics.
  • Keep the upgrade leprechaun under control.  Pictures look fine. Forums always concentrate on gear.  Wait for a can;t miss sale if you see something attractive or buy someone;s gear who buys and ...
  • And they never get stomach trouble.  We can learn from their gut microbes.  Humans are reputed to have started out as scavengers, some still bottom feed as well...oh yes, interesting imagery, Namur.
  • Lighthaus may be the only camera store left in Honolulu that carries serious cameras. My several visits showed the staff to be aloof and uninterested in unboxing cameras.  It is a little tricky to ...
  • It clearly didn't pass the slippery rock falling test.  I am warned.  Stuff happens.
  • For my EM-1 I bought the extended  2 yr from end of original warranty from the factory for 70 dollars. Check around on vendors. Prices can vary. But for piece of mind on a complex camera I felt it ...
  • Replied in Agreed
    Well, I am thinking that the companies did not want to price these guys out of reach when they would serve a clientele that is more limited than the overall bunch. But I have had no problem with ...
  • Glad to hear it PCR.  I liked the used FL 36 R so much I bought two of them from KEH and with case and stand they seem to be one of Olympus's most useful products.  I can't compare with the latest ...
  • Replied in Guide for EM-1
    Pre ordered the Young book about September.  This  one better meet expectations at its price.  But any port in a storm.  Complex camera.  Even with the good work of our friends from UK site.  The ...
  • Replied in My Two Cents
    I do think that it is time for Panasonic to offer a water resistant adapter even if they made few 4/3 lenses.  They did make some and some good ones as I recall.  I have both the Oly mmf3 and the ...
  • Try this. Set the FL 36R mode switch to SL or slave.  This should allow any flash to optically trigger it.   Not RC mode, which is the Oly/Panny infrared mode and which needs one of the specified ...
  • Lenses that have a tripod collar are best held using one hand on the collar for safe carrying and use.  Of course I do not have lenses like the 35-100 and maybe don't appreciate how it is used in ...
  • What can one say.   Do  not jump unless there is a net! The grass is always greener.  If you see others succeeding where you fail, will a loss in selling out help matters. Stop and reflect.  M43 ...
  • With some manuals, like the one for Lumix GX 7 running over 300 pages, I found it worth twenty dollars to get a spiral bound and clear cover copy made at Office Max.  Which I have done for years ...
  • If you want an  honest opinion you won't like, here goes.  For the legs I would go for carbon fiber Induro. Sweet spot is about $300.00.  For the head, I use a Really Right Stuff model about the ...
  • I have used B and W, Heliopan, Tiffen, Hoya, and Sensei (Pro) brand step up rings over the  years.  Aluminum as well as brass.   All those are decent enough quality and do the job and do not fail ...
