JoeVC's recent activity

  • One other possible reason is simple tradition; electronic shutters are only a recent innovation in m4/3 cameras, whereas the format dates back to September of 2008 with the Lumix G1. ~Joe
  • I believe "Panasonic" was a division of Matsushita Electric (not to be confused with Mitsubishi). Along with Technics and maybe one other brand I can't remember. Then around the time that ...
  • As I recall, in many regions where these cameras are sold they're limited to a 30 minute record time. The reason has to do with the differences between how dedicated video cameras and still ...
  • This reminds me of a problem I've had with my G1 and G5 using an aftermarket flash that's powered by a CR123 lithium cell. the flash will trigger with older cameras that use mechanical flash ...
  • If you guys think working with image files on an iPad is tough, try importing MP3 or .WAV files from a stand alone digital audio field recorder's SD card. The iPad camera connection adapter is ...
  • Replied in And DOF.....
    I like the term "shallowness of focus" when refering to larger formats. People who misuse the term "depth of focus" are, well, out of their depth.😊 ~Joe
  • I've been able to do this (preview images in monochrome in Live View without recording a JPEG) on the original G1 and my current G5. Set your camera to RAW only, then set the mode to a B/W film ...
  • Or better yet, just find a picture of the moon and clouds in Creative Commons and copy it. That's what I do for astrophotography, I just find a Hubble shot I like and claim I took it with my ...
  • I switched from m43 to a smaller format camera, because I needed wider DOF, not narrower . BTW, that's one of the main reasons why film-era camera lenses often had DOF scales, and why it seemed ...
  • Part of the reason is because Panasonic has prosumer/industrial/ENG/Broadcast/Cinema quality video products that do have these features, and don't want to undersell them into their consumer line ...
  • Replied in why?
    Roberto, I understand that lenses optimized for video need to have a clickless aperture ring, so that varying the aperture while recording won't result in step-like exposure changes; and since ...
  • FWIW, Silkypix shows the dead pixels in the raw preview window but eliminates them when rendering the JPEG file. This is my experience with the G1 and G5. ~Joe
  • Created discussion thread 14-25 Compact Zoom?
    Here's a question perhaps someone can answer. Since I'm an old traditionalist who likes the classic focal lengths of 28, 35 and 50mm, but who would like a compact-sized lens, is there a 14-25mm ...
  • Correction for chromatic aberration in Panasonic lenses are not recognized by Olympus bodies. because such software correction was not part of the micro-4/3 consortium agreement. not sure about ...
  • I have the same problem with my G5. And so I fold the LCD screen in upon itself and just use the EVF. This also has the effect of reducing chimping, since I can only do so through the EVF. And ...
  • I process my G5's raw files in SilkyPix, and it seems to compensate for hot pixels when doing the conversion from raw to JPEG. ~Joe
  • That's some great analysis. I figured the same thing when shooting sports of my grand kids, that aperture rules, giving opportunity to keep the shutter speed higher; and it's better to have a ...
  • Replied in Shooting film
    I started seriously in photography in the late 1970s with a Minolta SRT. Now I have too many film cameras to use. I do love the mechanics/haptics of their operation. I'm finding, however, the cost ...
  • I currently have a G5, and have been watching these new camera releases with interest. I really don't need a new camera, as the G5 has adequate image quality for me. But it is fun to look. What I ...
  • I'm interested more in how a camera's dynamic range performs in harsh lighting conditions like bright sun. These example images all seem to be taken in soft light, with minimally soft or no ...
