  • Replied in Water Drops
    I like water drop shots and appreciate the technical accomplishment, but sometimes I get the feeling that, "You've seen one, you've seen them all." That was maybe my initial reaction to your first ...
  • Replied in Update?
    Thanks for providing some real information on the dearth of real information! :-D
  • Replied in Update?
    The GX7 was $1,100 with 14-42 v.II lens when announced in August of 2013. Now, 20 months later, that kit is selling for $800 at B&H and Amazon. That seems to me like it falls within a reasonable ...
  • Replied in I'm cheap
    I admire your frugality and dedication to recycling, but I gotta say, that sounds TO ME like an ugly way to protect a screen on a $900 device. Also, I've never had any problem with residue after ...
  • Replied in Update?
    I really wonder what data folks are using as the basis for assertions that a camera is not selling, or that there are too many in stock, or that the manufacturer hasn't made any money from it.  I ...
  • I have this one on mine, works fine: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JMO3G10 I've never tried a glass protector.
  • My Oly 45 can take me back to the '70s. Doobie Brothers, Patrick Simmons
  • It's largely personal preference.  I waited until black was available in the U.S. to buy mine, as I prefer that look.  I do think, though, that it is a little less conspicuous, and that the ...
  • Replied in Agony over....
    Your images and layout are great! I confess that I find the textured background and drop shadows somewhat distracting/busy. I might prefer plain white, or plain black, or your background without ...
  • Your previous post included this: Impulses probably interpreted that (as did I) to mean that you were asserting that the swivel screen is superior.  Otherwise, if they are equal, why even mention ...
  • If you are talking about the Oly 40-150 f/2.8 pro lens, it has a manual focus clutch.  I'm not sure exactly how that works (I don't have any of those Oly lenses), but I think it is a ring that you ...
  • I agree that the GX line is intended to be (and is) above the G line. I would expect the G7 to have the GX7 sensor. It's not going to leapfrog the GX and GH lines in terms of sensor. I would hope ...
  • Replied in G5 OOC jpeg
    I got a killer deal on my G5  and think it's a quite capable camera. I usually reach for my GX7 these days, but I like having two bodies, and the G5 has its own pluses. It sure seems to me that ...
  • Replied in FFF
    Great images for essentially OOC!
  • I agree with Isabel that the RX100 image seems crisper, and with Alcelc that maybe the GX1 image is a bit OOF. What lens was that, the kit zoom or the 17 f/1.8? I guess the RX100 would have a bit ...
  • Replied in GX7 UPDATE?
    You know, I'm OK with that.  I'd rather see less frequent but more significant upgrades.
  • I don't know that I've tried it, but you might check out this guy's tip on how to do that: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3DAYCQBNTZ6N9
  • I didn't want to be too obvious. ;-) :-)
  • You know, Tom, after giving it more thought, I may be coming around to your way of thinking.  What puts me off about this setup in part is all the bits one needs to buy and attach.  The bracket ...
  • Surely you're not suggesting that someone should pay that much money for a Nocticron and then shoot it at anything other than wide open?
