  • If it's a case of the strap failing when it gets caught, e.g. on a door handle, it's probably better than the padeye being ripped out of the camera body. The weakness of the straps might have ...
  • Replied in Get the 12 - 32
    I would also recommend getting a zoom. It lets you try out different focal length. The 12-32 is great because of the 12 mm wide end, it's as small as the primes and the manual zoom is nicer than ...
  • Replied in GM1 works great
    The opinions on cameras are always subjective even if written as they were objective truths. So will just offer my own subjective opinion on the GM1 to counter the more negative views without ...
  • GM1 is much smaller than EM-10. Really not the same class of ILC. Also kit lens is much more useful, 12mm focal length and manual zoom instead of the rocker switch. To the OP: From those two th ...
  • I ahd the same thought. 4/3 sensor size doesn't mean M4/3 mount. It would be the dumbest thing possible, though. But that makes it actually more likely. Canon hasn't excelled in product strategy ...
  • Created discussions Metz saved
    If this has been posted before, I apologize, but haven't seen it. Search didn't show anything. The flash unit of Metz has been bought by a German electrical drive company. Here is the press release: ...
  • Much better than the stupid footballers they seem to have under contract. http://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/news/8829_Not-an-unknown-world-anymore.html There isn't anything about the camera gear ...
  • The 12-32 is all manual. I know the OP said the focal length is want he wants, just wanted to point that out. The rocker zoom switch is what pushed me away from the Olympus E-M10.
  • I'm a metric European, but fractions are a great tool, even in a decimal system. 4/3 is actually a great example. Try writing it as a decimal number...
  • Why would it? Keep the Smasung, it's a good cam. Buy the 30 and or 20mm lens for it. They are small (great for backpacking) and fast. They are also quite cheap. Spend the rest of the money on your ...
  • Replied in Web version
    Or you can access it without any app stores right here Like the web used to be, open and platform agnostic.
  • I wrote this in a similar thread but I find the thought important so I'll just repeat myself. If you're using it on hikes, also consider accessibility. I like the GM1 for hikes, because I can carry ...
  • The E-M10 is sold for 500 EUR body only in Germany, I don't think there's room for another camera  down there, price wise. Sony's aggressive pricing of the A5000 has pushed prices down. I think ...
  • I have used the GM1 on a couple of hikes, it's very well made for that with minimal size and weight. Usually shooting with the LCD is not a problem, I even used it in bright sunshine on the ...
  • Just here to add another recommendation for the 15 mm. In A mode with the aperture dial the lens is really fun. I haven't taken many pictures with it yet, but build and handling are fantastic.
  • Replied in I do
    Fast way to work on JPGs. I never use the color correction functions, though. Integrated scanning is also good.
  • Some genuinely world class photos in this thread. My can't quite keep up, but it's  my personal favorite: Mountaineers returning from the Mer de Glace
  • I sometimes like to think that they designed this as a camera for "our" generation. People who are used to touchscreens and small buttons. While the LX100 is a camera for the older generation no ...
  • After reading this thread, I started playing around with it. I noticed the way I use it, I don't use move with the tip of my finger, as if I wanted to push a small button. Instead I use the soft ...
  • I think what works really well in that picture is that the diagonal lines are all converging on top of the mountain. Changing your viewpoint could ruin that. The foreground is bad in itself, it's ...
