  • Without knowing more about how/what you shoot, it's hard to give informed recommendations.  Personally, I value large aperture openings over large zoom ranges, so I'd pick the 12-40 f/2.8. On the ...
  • That was my three lens kit (14mm, 20mm, 45mm) for quite a while and I was always happy with it.  I've added a few more focal lengths since but for a small, light travel/hiking kit I often go back ...
  • I currently have no stabilized lenses or bodies.  One of these days I will likely pick up a Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8 OIS for video and weather sealed usage.
  • Replied in Enjoy!
    I've considered picking up a second GH3 if/when I start to do video more seriously.  The electronic shutter works well when there is no movement, but I have had some oddly distorted portraits due ...
  • and I've printed as large as 24x36, though that's more rare.
  • Replied in Focus Slicing?
    Interesting food for thought!  I will have to take a look at these options more carefully, they're outside of my usual workflow so I have some learning to do.
  • Created question thread Focus Slicing?
    This may seem odd- it just occurred to me as an idea and I'm wondering if such a technique exists or if there would be a relatively straightforward way to make it happen in Photoshop.  Basically, ...
  • Replied in Nope
    A larger sensor won't solve any photographic problems I need solved and will create a host of new ones.  YMMV.
  • I do pretty much the same thing on my GH3.  The Wifi is extremely slow when it comes to transferring files/checking focus on my smartphone, so the low resolution .jpegs work great for some quick ...
  • I'd probably pick Samsung as my second choice.  Good system, good lenses, flexible body options.  Alas, it seems Samsung is backing out of dedicated cameras.  Instead, if I had to replace my ...
  • Replied in -30ºC to -40ºC
    If I went by that I'd be lucky to get 6 months of outdoor photography where I live. I've used my GH3 down to -30ºC and occasionally colder, particularly once wind chill is factored in.
  • Replied in Do not do this
    More stress is caused by the camera changing temperatures than by being cold. If you keep moving a camera between a hot damp area (inside clothes) and cold dry area (winter outdoor) you will run ...

    Thanks!  The dome is the roof of the provincial legislature here in Winnipeg.  The figure on the top is known as the Golden Boy .

    Thanks!  It's my home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

  • I'd happily have a second SD memory card slot in a future GH# model.  In-camera backups are nice when shooting paid gigs, and for personal use I'd like the ability to record raw files to one card ...
  • I've used a 500mm mirror lens and a 2x teleconverter.  It's a bit of a kludge but it works.
  • They are data points that help me make a decision to meet my needs.  For example, lens properties that have a lot of weight in my decision making process include image quality, maximum aperture ...
  • EXIF should be intact.  Captured in raw, some post processing in Lightroom.
  • I have some 45mm f/1.8 landscapes, when I get home I'll track down a few.  Short version is I like it.
