Peter in Milton's recent activity

  • I have an Olympus EM5 and I also have a couple of Sekonic meters including an L-398 that I use on my meter-less film cameras. These are very good meters and agree closely with my digital in-camera ...
  • At only 50% full you should notice hardly any difference in performance.  I doubt if reloading the HD would make any difference.  Getting a lot of HD "churning" often means that the HD is getting ...
  • I use a 2014 MacMini (i7 processor, 16G RAM, and 512G SSD) for my photoshop and lightroom work.  The files are from my Leica M and large film scans.  I know a professional who uses a D810 and Sony ...
  • But not beyond mine :-) I think the camera looks wonderful, and the files I have seen from this machine are also wonderful. Anyone who likes B&W photography (and there are lots of us) and anyone...

  • Close, but it does have video (although I can't imagine anyone getting this for B&W video production), and it does have an add-on EVF, which can be quite useful for critical focus or for unusual...

  • Daedalus2000 You are right! It certainly did need cleaning. :-) Unfortunately, the Leica sensor needs to be more carefully watched for this as it doesn't have the vibration cleaning that other ...
  • Thanks.  I think MF would work very well in a situation like this, although I was using AF-C and low speed drive.  The cyclists did not all follow the same path, so I think AF-C was probably ...
  • I was in Barcelona this June and it was certainly crowded!  I usually find however that if I am patient, gaps in the crowds occur.  My wife is very understanding and just goes off to find a seat, ...
  • Created discussion thread Barcelona with the M240
    Some examples of the work of Gaudi.  Taken with my M(240).  The color shots were using the Zeiss 35 1.4 Distagon, and the B&W shots were taken using the Zeiss 21 2.8 Biogon. Sagrada Familia ...
  • Created discussion thread MFT does PanAm games
    I do't shoot sports, so the fact that my OMD5 (original version) is not considered the correct kit for sports did not bother me at all. However the recently finished PanAm games cycling events ...
  • Either of these is quite capable of running the software you mention.  I take a low end MacBook Air 13inch (2012) when I travel for extended periods, and am able to run Lightroom and Photoshop ...
  • I have this lens and have no issues.  (Mine may be more recent.)  I find it to be a decent lens, but it does not really match the capability of the D810 - especially for landscapes.  So if it is ...
  • Check today's date. ;)
  • I have a Hadley Pro in tan, and a 335 in sage.  I got them both in 2010 and use them for my Leica and Nikon systems respectively.  They have both done countless miles round the world and show ...
  • I have the 28/2.8 Elmarit and the 50/1.4 Sumilux, to which I added the Zeiss 35/1.4 in January.  The Zeiss is much less expensive that the Leica 35/1.4 (which I have not used), and easily equal or ...
  • Thanks for the feedback.  Looks that this could be my solution.
  • I want to use my EM5 to do an indoor demonstration of some lighting techniques.  I want the pictures I take to be visible to others as I take them.  Using my old Nikon gear I would simply connect ...
  • I bought the 45-200 in 2008 just after getting a G1.  I still have it and still use it (now on an EM5).  Over the years it is one of my most used lenses.  Also along the way I bought the Panny ...
  • I bought the new mini and run Photoshop and Lightroom simultaneously with no performance issues.  I got a fully maxed out version except for the drive, keeping mine at the 512GB SSD.  I use ...
