  • As I learned on this forum, the x2 was replaced by the x-e Typ102 (just a different color scheme and a lower price). In past few days I've seen brand new x-e on sale for about $1300. A used x2 ...
  • In my previous experience focusing (or trying to) MF lenses on either GXR-M or Nex-7 I found just as you reported that many lenses needed to be focused just short of infinity. What I learned trying ...
  • Once I've fine-tuned the exposure parameters using Live View, and hopefully "nailed" the focus using magnified Live View, then I simply keep the same A/S/Iso parameters and the focus setting just ...
  • "Auto-ISO" appears to be disabled from Live-View with Movie control set to "Manual."  Of course this is not a critical limitation because I can guess pretty well which fixed ISO value best matches ...
  • Wait a minute!  It DOES work, just the way that you said it should.  That is, exposure is shown in the picture itself, not through any exposure ruler superimposed on the screen.  This is very cool!
  • I tried what you suggested, but success eluded me.  I changed the menu setting of Movie to "manual," but that did not appear to add an exposure meter to either screen when taking stills with the ...
  • I followed your directions carefully when placing an AI-S 105mm f/2.4 onto my d5500.  In "M" mode I was able to control the aperture from the len's aperture adjustment ring, and the shutter via ...
  • This is EXACTLY what I needed to answer my question. I sure hope that this info will also prove valuable for others too who happen to own previous generation Nikon SLR lenses for film cameras. I ...
  • Replied in D5500 Lenses
    Make sure that both zoom lenses are indeed the newest versions: VRii and not the earlier VR.  Because that price of $799 for the camera and both kit zooms is what most vendors charge just for a ...
  • Thanks for the observations.  Would you explain the process of mounting and shooting an older manual-focus, manual aperture lens like the Q 200mm f/4 non-AI-S on the d5500?  I have a ...
  • I just purchased a "like new" d5500 w/18-55 vrii for less than $700, and then added a "like new" 55-200 vrii for less than $150. At these discounted prices, the d5500 (as the newest Nikon, and my ...
  • Yes, thank you for your contribution.  Since my VF-2 arrived a few days ago I quickly learned that it could not be used to mimic a waist-level viewer, just as you and others here had advised would ...
  • Replied in Leica type C
    Yes, Pano is a selection option on the Leica-C mode dial located between SCN and C2.  See manual page 105.  But, built-in Pano probably not as good as the way that you did yours.
  • Created discussions Leica X-E (typ102) v. X2
    It has been seven months since the simultaneous introduction of the X typ113 and the X-E typ102.  Yet sparse mention has been made here of the typ102 since then. Has it since been confirmed that ...
  • Denis, you are correct about thread etiquette, so I am going to start a thread in just awhile entitled "Leica X2 versus X-E," so we can discuss our mutual interest on-topic.  Runnicle.
  • Replied in CORRECTION!!!
    JD...please confirm that the order of the two pictures in your "CORRECTION" posting is #1--LR5 and #2--LR6.  You had provided identifying captions for the two pictures in your original posting, ...
  • Replied in CORRECTION!!!
    JD, they look indistinguishable to me, and it seems to me that they should be so.  Your experiment shows that the two engines are identical with respect to encoding a DNG file and also identical ...
  • Replied in Lightroom 6
    JD, thanks for keeping the forum informed about the new LR.  Wouldn't your test btw v5 and v6 have been more precise and telling if you had used the SAME DNG image as the starting point for each ...
  • My first session with the X2 was yesterday, and the resulting pictures of flowers by a lake and parking lot just "jumped out at me." However, my photographer pen pal in France has yet to pass ...
  • Actually, I'm old enough to have invented disco, although I didn't.  I'd also like to mention that my neat little X2 (used from Kenmore) arrived today, and that I just read a nice 3-year-old ...
