Rens' recent activity

  • The EM1 photo looks to me like my EM5 shots that appeared over-sharpened, even in RAW files, and helped me decide to change to a GH4. The Sony photo looks either out of focus or suffering camera shake.

    But then the only thing about Panasonic that disappointed her was the lack of ecstatic reviews.  Once this was pointed out, what more could she say? Very happy with GM1 and GH4.
  • Created discussions GM1 tougher than it looks
    At the end of October I lost my orange GM1.  It went with me everywhere, and I'm pretty sure I pulled it out of my pocket along with my hat one day.  It could have happened anywhere. I decided not ...
  • Commented on Beautiful Calves challenge

    What a silly comment. The photo quality is poor, not offensive.

    Indoors, no flash, no light. The good bit about it (in my view) was the subject, the ridiculous high heels. But a different take...

    I see the rules state that any offensive shots will be immediately removed.

    Hi Geoff, thanks for the review.  I've also been wondering about this lens for a while.  I mostly use wide angle, but longer would be useful too. I feel we're spoiled these days.  If your 300 mm ...

    If this is the same cap I lost with my GM1 and 12-32, it vignettes only when you don't have it orientated accurately.  But since I don't have mine to compare, it could be different.
  • Replied in Yes but...
    Yes, I also was very happy with this lens on my GM1, which went into most pockets and meant I could have a good camera with me at all times and no camera bag.  This made the downsides to the tiny ...

  • Replied in Hello Vlad S
    I realise you mean to be helpful, but the above is not an issue I have described.  The images are very similar on camera LCD and my monitor. Yes, I agree the image is too green and too blue.  I was ...
  • Here is a comparison using very dull images. Test photo 1. Straight out of camera, opened with ACR, WB changed from 'as shot' to 'auto, no further processing, resized in PS, no further processing. ...
  • Most odd. My photos are of my native Northumbrian countryside, currently mostly in it's winter drab. I don't think I've any other settings in ACR. Though if so, I'd expect these to affect ACR ...
  • When I set GH4 auto WB to neutral, a jpeg  displays as more blue than the scene as taken, both on the camera LCD and my computer monitor (including when opened in PS). When I open the the raw file ...
  • My point is that ACR auto colour temperature is consistently different from the GH4 colour temperature; monitor calibration doesn't come into this. Incidentally, my monitor is not calibrated, but ...
  • Thank you. I hadn't realised I could do this, problem solved.
  • I've always been aware that the GH4 auto colour balance is too blue for my taste. I now realise that in Adobe Camera Raw the 'as shot' colour temperature is as in my jpegs but 'auto' is much closer ...
  • I wish the OP well whatever he goes with, I also read about the Sony A7 with interest. But I am bewildered by his comments (and those of others) who find the GH3 and GH4 too big. If a camera won't ...
