  • Stevo, you are banished from the hunter gatherer society for suggesting an action that might promote prosperity for our community by engaging the evil enemy. All structured organizations are evil, ...
  • stevo, alexis broke his glasses and can not read the message in my smoke signals, and as a result I do not know if he has any arrow heads to spare. I am wondering if i could borrow a few from you/ ...
  • I welcome your choice in rejecting all that evil corporations have contributed to mankind and to join us in a return to the glorious hunter/gatherer society.  How many of your arrow heads could I ...
  • Seth, you may also enjoy the content of this thread from a month or so ago. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54612428
  • Seth, I agree with your comment on smart phones, but I really was speaking of traditional cameras.  Since most all camera product revenue is also coming out of the smart phone space, this is where ...
  • OK, saving a buck or two on the use of existing glass, I understand.  I was referring to moving away from M4/3 as an entire system.
  • Are there any on this thread that would seriously consider a traditional FF camera from any mfr?  The M 4/3 system is wonderful - personally, I would never consider going back, unless all my work ...
  • Mike Thank you so much for the photos. Great shots.  I have not as yet recorded any images from Holland, MI, but expect some in the future.  My wife and I will do some research on the sights you ...
  • I was in Harlan County Kentucky a few years ago, when a Canadian photographer set  up a telephoto on a tri-pod to record a guy on his front porch.  The photographer was suddenly sighting up the ...
  • I downsized to a M 4/3 with a total of 4 lenses and a flash.  The Lowepro 110 Slingshot is terrific.  Covers an all day hike, repositioning the dividers allows easy lens changing while the bag is ...
  • Some questions.  Moving could have several meanings.  Did you export these images? If so they should reside in both locations?  Can you find them in your laptop? Drake
  • A repeat of my comments above is warranted, "Agriculture of all types is deplorable! I used exist as a hunter - gatherer, but a few years ago, I finally understood basis of animal rights and now ...
  • Most missed the issue here. Perhaps this sensor may never find its way into your camera, but there is a certainty the technology growth coming out of sensor research will develop a sensor that...

  • Agriculture of all types is deplorable!  I used exist as a hunter - gatherer, but a few years ago, I finally understood basis of animal rights and now exist simply by gathering berries and nuts. ...
  • I just completed this task with about the same number of photos. I deleted about 10% of my original images. (1) Kept all images in my hard drive (2) Made up the hard ...
  • Replied in M 4/3 eom
  • I fail to understand the interest in pursuing two inferior (on a relative basis) cameras instead of a single superior one.  Oh, yes there could be an event failure and some circumstances warrant ...
  • I understand that the extreme cold in the US midwest during the winter of 2013/14 had irrefutable origins in the man's unwillingness to address global warming. Drake
  • A reply from a guy, who first began using a camera when there was no in camera metering or auto focus. I discovered as I initially moved to cameras with some automation that my photo's actually ...
  • Replied in EM-1
    Over a lifetime as a photo hobbiest; I moved thru the Minolta family of film carmeras,  the Oly OM series, many of the Nikon digital DSLR's and now the Oly EM-1.  The joy in photography is a fit ...
