  • Just playing around with both lightpainting and compositing two images together.
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
  • If you haven't tried using touchpad AF while looking through the EVF, then you just simply don't know what you are missing. It is so much more intuitive and accurate than doing the standard ...
  • Can't do that with an m43's camera and expect people to consider it "micro" anymore. Gotta carry some spares until we finally get new battery technology.
  • Replied in This works!
    I owned the PL25mm f1.4. It rattlesnaked like crazy. I eventually sold it as I just don't like the focal length. I bought a Noct, and noticed that it too rattlesnakes (though not as bad) on my ...

    Yes, the G7 is one of the unsung bargain heroes of m43's. I wish it matched the $549 price with the 14-140 though. Regardless, it is a more capable camera than this Canon.

  • This really is how Canon stays so relevant. Create a solid, entry level camera and sell it with 2 lenses for under $550. Newly minted enthusiasts are greeted with a decent camera that is connected...

  • I found the Panny 42.5 f1.7 to have good bokeh most of the time, and somewhat nervous bokeh at other times. That doesn't take away all its other great qualities like edge sharpness, and a really ...
  • I chose the PL25 for how it renders, but have since sold it and have no desire to own a 25mm prime anymore (just don't like the focal length). Having said that, I did play with the Oly 25 the ...
  • Replied in Thanks all!
    I used the Noct for this. I've frankly haven't had any desire to take it off my camera after having gotten in 2 weeks ago.
  • You are effectively shooting portraits with boudoir, though you are looking to capture most, if not all of the body as well. The 7-14 can work, but it can also distort the image due to physics if ...
  • Replied in You birders...
    I have no idea how you find a subject at effectively 600mm while having to manually focus something that long, and not have the subject disappear, while you flail around looking for it. Hell, that ...
  • Replied in A simple life.
    Family is moving away, so this was our last time at this park. It might seem a bit quant, but as Bilbo says... "it is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life."
  • You have to bracket and stack it to get the results you are looking for (also have to use as low an ISO as possible, even then, still will need to stack). Its much more involved getting m43's to ...
  • Replied in A few things
    1) You can't tell how sharp that image you linked is since, it doesn't let you actually view it at 100%. That cannon shot looks equally as sharp set to the same resolution as that portrait you linked.
  • Sooo... the other day, I grabbed my EM10 and the PL15 to take a few shots of the kids in the back yard. It was overcast that day, which made for some nice light. I was taking some shots, and then ...
  • Touchpad AF needs a few more options to really nail its control/usability. Panny and Oly need to take some tips from computers and allow us to dial in the sensitivity of how fast/far the focal ...
  • It looks good and I'm looking for a new one.
  • It is a problem I also have with the GX8. Even when using touch focus/fire, it will keep the last focus point you touched which is annoying. On Olympus, if you do touch focus/fire, then shoot with ...
