juju: I guess you have found the challenge winning spot then :)
Actually, I wasn't going to enter this one, since it has won before, but it's so rare to get a GH-only challenge, I couldn't resist putting it in :)
No, you are not seeing double. They were both taken at the same place, but a couple of years apart. The light was serendipitously wonderful both times :) .
Wormsmeat: Congrats, I knew it was a good 'un when I first saw it.
Thanks, Wormy :)
Funny thing, my second entry almost came in dead last, and I like it much better....it looks wonderful printed, too. ( Speed Shop Window, (#32) http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=871307&View=Results&Rows=25 )
db.: Interesting title... ??
Oops, sorry about that. It's my coding system for size and processing status.
Sony A7 (announced Oct 16, 2013)
Ed at Ridersite: One of my favorites too. Guess some folks just don't care for cat photos :(
Focal length was 38mm (FF equivalent).
I think there might be an error on page 6?
"The number of photographers who value a viewfinder of any sort will more than make up for any put-off by a 3:2 ratio screen, which doesn't quite match the shooting dimensions"
This looks like a 16:9 display, not a 3:2. Can you check on this?
RuthC: If any viewer thinks that they have seen this photo before, no they haven't. Different year, different boats, different holiday perhaps. Ruth
(Different camera, too :) )
It's actually a chipmunk....
Schjeldal: Nice idea for the challenge. Most photos receiving high scores at this forum leave you in the same way as candy does.
Thanks. I realized that after putting up some of my more subtle, but good, images, and they always ended up in the middle of the pack, so I figured, why not have a contest that weeds out the eye candy before it starts and see what happens.....
Cool! Last place!
PeterGlaso: Had high hopes for this camera, and was ready to pre-order right now, if it was manual focus friendly, like the teasers and design suggested. It isn't, so i won't. A bit disappointed now. Getting the Sony A7r and leaving the Nikon camp.
Greenarcher02- It's a lot easier to manual focus when you have a split prism design in the center of the viewfinder with a microprism ring around it. If Nikon had enabled this camera to have interchangeable focusing screens, people could have swapped the regular, simple focus screen that comes with the camera for one of the split screen type if people needed it for manual focus. By not doing that, they make focusing with manual lenses MUCH more difficult (and defeat at least some of the purpose of this camera in the process.)
Looks like they sent the V2 design team to the FF design studio and came up with this as a result.
I'm sorry, but this is just not a good looking camera. It's clunky and looks like they couldn't quite figure out how to elegantly put DSLR innards into a truly pared down body.
I'm not sure how well this will sell...maybe it does have a niche market, but if it were only a little bit simpler and more refined in appearance....
It may not be an equine, but it's a heck of a nice photo....should have done better than last place on composition alone.
The light was just right as he sat taking off his socks and shoes to walk around in the grass barefoot. He was enjoying the afternoon out, (and he was very pleased with his hat, too)!
Mirrorless _ user: Where is the " GO TO FULL SCREEN MODE " button ?????
Yes, that would be helpful...perhaps even a larger magnification, since these images seem much smaller than the previous detail sections on the last studio scene.
I know you are going to be shooting some older cameras again, but for this particular camera it would be really helpful to maybe shoot the old test scene too? It would really give users a chance to compare to ALL previous M43s that way, and would certainly be less work on your part than retesting several generations of M43 cameras.....
JeffreyG: I'm planning on buying one of the camera's when it comes out. Can anyone list their top lenses to use with the Panasonic GX7. I would get the kit lens.
I have some very nice Nikon lenses and am thinking of selling them locally. I would want to get 3 or 4 very nice lenses for the camera.
Also, you may want to keep some of your Nikon lenses for use on the GX7 with an adapter. Yes they will use manual focus and aperture adjustment, but the non-G ones work great. (BTW, my macro lens for my M43 is a micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5...works wonderfully).
NZ Scott: Nice use of the 40-150, Jalywol.
Thanks! It was an opportune moment :)
