  • mpgxsvcd, post some astro shots in your gallery, I'd love to see what can be achieved without spending a fortune

  • True, this isn't true astrophotography in the sense of deep space objects through a telescope, but I think to refer to the photographer sharing his experienced as a "guy showing off his night time...

  • Little known fact: CP/M was created by "Digital Research" but the company was actually incorporated as "Intergalactic Digital Research"...tell me that guy wasn't a Trekie lol.

  • Yeah, in the late 80s I worked in a repair shop during college doing board level repair on the PC and PC XTs, Kaypros, Compaq portables, Apples... the old Compaq and Kaypro portables that were the...

  • Yeah, 64 was 1982, first one I had, however in 1980 the Commodore VIC20 was the TRS80's main competition, and was the first computer to sell over 1 million units. I almost got the venerable Timex...

  • Wealthy is likely too strong of a word. I'll settle for "well off". I wasn't, which is why I had a Commadore 64...

  • HowaboutRAW,

  • Cool camera, but it seems like it fits such a small niche market of wealthy hobbyists that I'm curious what sales numbers will ultimately look like. I would think very low volume, which...

  • True, and since the coma performance looks respectable, it will probably hold some allure to astros.

  • Thanks, Then all I'll have to do is find a good user lol.
  • It's a boarder shutter range than that. Honestly, it does vary in severity some, but I haven't found a shutterspeed or focal length I would consider good. I'm somewhat familiar with that typical ...
  • Thanks for the feedback. I probably wouldn't go for the E-PL5 just because the one thing other than the lens issue I'm not crazy about on the GX1 is a like of viewfinder, so I would probably lean ...
  • Created discussions Panasonic Gx1 lens ?
    Has anyone attached the newish Vario 12-32 collapsible zoom to a GX1 body and seen good results? Or maybe the Oly 14-42? A couple of years ago a bought a GX1 w/ 14-42 X Vario PZ lens kit on a ...
  • Points well made. I suppose I wasn't giving enough consideration to the fact that they have time to introduce those before or with their first FF body, and therefore lauched ones more attractive to...
