  • Created discussions Fuji 27mm with x-pro1
    Just unpacked my 27mm and attached to my good old x-pro1. A wonderful little kit and great field of view. My personal little system. Got an urgent call to shoot a commercial shoot to show off a ...
  • Just add the 14mm, its a stunner, the rest of your kit covers the rest for now. We are currently on a family travelling trip around Thailand, India and Brunei. Have a XE1, 14mm and the 60mm macro ...
  • Just buy a second XE-1. You can get the body from B&H for $500 new. I have been a recent mover from m4/3 to fuji-x, having started with a pro1 and a x-e1 Just got another x-e1 body, it's a no ...
  • Thanks for the info. I was a nikon film/digital user for a number of years, still have a mint film F4 kit with primes but have enjoyed the lack of mass and weight that a good mirrorless system ...
  • So from memory you went from m43 to fuji then thinking about nikon FF.... Just out of interest, how do you feel about m43 vs your fuji kit? I seem to remember you had the panasonic 12-35 which is ...
  • Thanks, that helps alot. Looks like the oly25mm is on the wishlist, just need to clear some unused items. Yes a "free" hood, such progress :)
  • The 12, 25, 45mm combo would be awesome. I have the 7.5mm, 14mm, 45mm combo for travel. I can defish the 7.5mm to get ultra wide, the 14mm is super sharp apart from the corners, and the 45mm is ...
  • Thanks Tom, have you had the 20mm? if so is the 25mm faster to AF? Cheers
  • Created discussions Olympus 25mm 1.8 for video
    Hi Sold my 20mm 1.7 a while back and been missing it ever since. I did not like the noise during video and slow AF. Has anyone compared the new olympus 25mm to the panasonic 20mm for doing video work?
  • Thanks for the reply. Yes would be great to make the most of the new screen :) Great links, looking forward to getting access again to my photos. later today will try a fresh install of LR4 then if ...
  • Thanks Basalite for the link. I will try reloading LR4 as a fresh install, maybe it was an issue because of extracting it from a timemachine backup. As it looked like I may need to change, then its ...
  • Hi Is there much difference in the way aperture and LR5 handle colours, tones and noise with GH3 and GX1 raw files? I was using LR4 and the results were "OK" I need to upgrade as my new MBPr runs ...
  • Yes the gmail/apple mail is a pain but generally mavericks has been great. A downside has been that LR4 wont run on mavericks, so need to upgrade to LR5 or try Aperture. Beware that if you have ...
  • My macbook died recently so forced to get a new model and chose a MBPr13 with 8gb ram, 256gb drive. Very pleased with it, nice and quick, a lot lighter and great battery. The downside is realising ...
  • Yes the paperwork will reveal weather you have global cover or within a zone. In the past when buying nikon gear from BH, I made sure it was not the grey market option they have as they need to be ...
  • Wow thats good to see. I guess the Panasonic shutters would be similar? I have a few GX1 bodies that I hope to last at least to 70,000. I have never had a shutter die on me, and that includes a few ...
  • Replied in Solar charger?
    Ok, good to know there is no access to 12volts. How about the solar charging bags from these guys... http://www.backup-power.ca/backpacks.html
  • Replied in NO
    I have all Panasonic cameras but have a mix of lenses. Good to see what's on offer from olympus
  • Replied in Solar charger?
    In the past with my nikons when we travelled for months on end in a campervan in europe we simply used a 300w inverter that plugged into the cig lighter of a car. Worked well to charge all our ...
  • Yeap, the cheapest buy is a second hand mark one version. Personally I would save a bit longer and get the mark two version. I have it on a gx1 along with lvf when needed. A great all round kit ...
