  • Replied in No, and no
    Is it a fad?  No, it's progress.  4k is the new HD, and the march towards it is inevitable. Do I need/want it?  No.  I'm not even using the HD recording of my GH3 to it's full potential so I'm in ...
  • Personally, I couldn't see paying a cost premium and accepting a weight/bulk penalty for a 12mm f/1 lens.  Indeed, I'd much sooner buy a compact (rectilinear) 8mm f/4 than another, faster 12mm or ...
  • This is the same logic that brought me to m4/3 from Canon 135 format.  It is a small, light, competent kit that meets my needs.  I don't care about equivalence, nor do my clients. I care about if ...
  • Good luck with that crusade :)  I try to point this out when I have energy but at the end of the day, it is the internet.
  • That was a sweet little camera.  I think I still have mine kicking around somewhere, though the film rewind knob is broken.  Still, it's no smaller than my GX1 with a Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens on ...
  • I'd buy that lens. -- A photograph is a creative interpretation of reality.
  • Objectively, the 5DmkIII will give better results for these scenarios, at least if paired with the correct lenses.  That is also a fairly substantial expense- B&H lists the 24-105 kit as US$3800. ...
  • It's never even hit my radar of features to look for in a camera. I suspect it is a marketing checkbox that lazy reviewers can "ding" cameras on to try and find differentiation where there is none.
  • And that is only in extreme circumstances.  As with you, I try to stay at f/8 or below (typically below). If I need longer exposures, I use a ND filter.  If I need more depth of field (especially ...
  • Replied in Size matters
    I can fit two cameras and five prime lenses into a smaller space than my old 5dmkII with a 24-105mm lens. It's the main reason I downsized from 135 format gear.
  • This pretty much matches my experience.  I keep the screen folded "backwards" for storage and most shooting on my GH3, though I do like having it folded out when not doing EVF work (video, macro, ...
  • For tricky situations, I carry a colour checker and use it as a reference for white balance.  I find that I usually need to massage the white balance to get what I like out of it.
  • Replied in I think so
    Raw+jpeg is a waste of time, energy, and space in my opinion. The only exception for me is that I will occasionally shoot small (pixel count) .jpegs in addition to raw when I use my GH3 with a ...
  • Replied in Rainy Landscapes
    A few shots from a recent cycle tour.  Unfortunately it was rainy the entire time so I didn't venture too far from camp, but there were some nice opportunities.
  • Replied in Nailed it
    As with most artistic questions, the real answer is subjective. Personally, going back to the original pair of lenses mentioned, I would be much more likely to start off with the 15mm over the ...
  • Replied in 4K is the new HD
    So yes, there are many new 4k cameras coming. It will likely be a standard feature within the next 5 years as all the companies rush to add another check box to their marketing lists. -- A ...
  • Pretty much the same here. I would never buy a lens just because it gets good reviews. The Olympus 75mm is a good example of that for me: stellar reviews, but not a focal length I find myself needing.
  • I can usually get away with the 3 stop for portraits, but for multi second exposures I pull out the 10. -- A photograph is a creative interpretation of reality.
  • I don't do a lot of street photography involving people but here are two shots I dug up: Both have been cropped to 16:9 but only by trimming out stuff from the top/bottom, the width is the full ...
