    Yeah?

  • A Roller for only $800! Any chance of a similarly priced Ferrari?

  • The solution's shooting more positions with generous overlap (if using an FE). I've rigged an adapter so that I can mount a 77 mm on any of the three FE lenses I use including a shaved 10.5 Nikkor ...
  • I bought an Olympus OMD EM5 from a UK retail operation. It was definitely in unopened packaging. After a couple of months I noticed some sensor dust - at least that was how it looked. I was ...
  • Ok, I hadn't noticed that - thanks!
  • I'm pretty underwhelmed by it too, however I have a practical reason for experimenting with non-visible wavelengths in connection with degraded frescos. Whilst I'm about it I thought I'd try some ...
  • I recently ordered a filter from a Chinese supplier. I received a response indicating that there would be a delay of up to a week in consequence of the holiday. I replied that this would be no ...
  • Thanks JP. This is a pity. Unfortunately the introduction of cameras (and phones!) which enable "automatic panorama stitching" has probably been a contributing factor. Apparently these devices ...
  • Same old sh!t ergonomics, hopelessly labrynthine firmware. Why don't these tw@ts get a photographer to test a prototype before foisting them on gullible consumers?
    A 1) Because they keep getting...

  • You started me on motor insurance. Briefly, given that the actual final risk is borne by only two entities, the entire pyramid of motor insurance is grotesquely inflated by virtue of the same ...
  • Well, maybe, if your photography is significantly risky in some way. A few years after continuously holding a camera insurance policy from "Towergate" - a UK insurer who specialise in this area - ...
  • Created discussions RIP panoguide.com?
    When I was teaching myself pano photography a few years ago I found the above site very useful - a couple of its regular contributors were very helpful. I just took another look to see if there ...
  • I've been looking around - unsuccessfully so far - to see if there's such a thing as the above. There's a reasonably priced holder for the Nikon 14-24 available for this size (about £80). I'd also ...
  • Some time at the end of last year I posted something about this problem on a friend's system (which I bought for her, hence my obligation to sort it out.) The 30-110 (?) is exhibiting identical ...
  • Never mind the bl00dy "40mp without a tripod". How about designing an M43 camera with controls that someone has actually TESTED FOR USABILITY! I can't speak for the other models but the EM5 (mk 1)...

  • So, let's see if I understand. It's not a bad idea for a camera's lousy handling to cause unintended settings since occasionally (or is it often?) some other characteristic of the camera will...

  • "Despite being very small indeed, the E-M5 is peppered with physical control points. In fact, in our initial testing, we're equivocal about this. On the one hand, physical control is great, but...

  • And, of course there's an "optional dedicated viewfinder" available.
