  • "My current gear I will be selling: 1. Lumix GF5 with 20mm 1.8 and a kit zoom - I LOVE this camera and I LOVE the interface and the touch screen to set the exposure and the super-accuracy of the...
  • Conventional wisdom is that the best still + video camera is the Panasonic GH4 -- m4/3 though, not dslr.  But the most obvious suggestion is buy a camcorder to shoot video.

    Well, the example you linked is an inexpensive P&S. The linked page offers a working used one for $45; so no matter how cheap the broken one is, it's not worth fixing for resale.
  • Replied in Tulip Meetup
    Thanks for the tips about tulips in Oregon and Ottawa. Too far apart for a single trip, but both go into my file of places to go and things to do.

    Lovely project, nicely done. I watched the whole thing and enjoyed it.
  • The usual suspects: Gitzo, Really Right Stuff, Manfrotto.
  • OK, a sufficient range of forum lawyers have spoken. Fish Chris, I'm sorry about your injury and the painful recovery you're experiencing. I'm also sorry you slightly damaged your gear.  But I have...
  • Yet another series which shows the X Vario to considerable advantage. You guys are going to make me buy one of those things someday. I was especially impressed by the interiors in the bar and the...
  • Wonderful teapot. Photos in series balance repetition and variation, so aspect ratio can repeat or differ. Neither pattern is better than the alternative, though maintaining the same aspect ratio...

  • In your situation I'd choose the X Vario as a more effective complement to your Fuji X gear. Although I'm perfectly happy with my M8 and have no serious inclination to replace it with a newer...

  • Yes. B&W for the first, color for the second.

    Lovely set, with strong continuity. I especially like your including the off-angle bridge shot. It's a nice variation which makes returning to your main theme stronger.
  • You can use the site camerasize.com to compare cameras for size (duh); the Olympus is about 2/3 the size of the Pentax K50. Weather resistance is nice but not essential. It means that the...
  • Your first impulse is a good one: to shoot video, get a video camera.
  • I don't see any significant market for a inexpensive M-mount body. Good adapters permit any m4/3 body to use M mount lenses. The same is true of Sony NEX cameras. You can also get an M mount module...
