I suspect some of you will find this one a bit odd, but here goes..... I'm thinking of adding a large sensor compact to the mix, and thought I'd ask here of all places. Simple questions for those of you who have a large sensor compact in the mix of gear you use? What do you think of it? What limitations do you encounter (beyond the blindingly obvious). Obviously, I'm mulling over something to accompany my Micro Four Thirds kit. Having shot nothing but larger sensor cameras for the past few...
I continue to be fascinated by the Leica X Vario. I have a few questions that maybe you folks can answer: Can you set the camera to shoot in a 16:9 aspect ratio? I've grown to enjoy that format and prefer to compose with it rather than crop to it during PP. Is there a live histogram available? I use the live histogram 100% of the time on my D-Lux 6. It really helps me dial in exposure, making the latitude of raw files much less necessary for everyday exposures. How is exposure compensation...
i decided to get this camera as a replacement for my Leica D2, no the lens is not fast, but for what I wanted it suits me. i had to travel out of town and brought it with me and it has worked pretty flawlessly. the only problem I had so far- not sure how it happened , but I usually shoot with DNG and super fine jpg. Twice for some reason, it reverted to jpg only, not sure if it happened by accident in my camera bag, but will keep an eye. the camera also froze once, I reset the camera by...
I've heard that there are some issues when using Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies - specifically around CA and focus speed. Have those problems been fixed? If not, how bad is it? I'm specifically curious about these 3 lenses: Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Leica DG SUMMILUXPanasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH POWER OIS LUMIX G X VARIO Panasonic Lumix G 100-300/4-5.6 --Thanks,Markhttp://www.olwickphotography.com
I'm going to chalk this up as further proof that Leica simply aren't what they used to be. Now they're putting the "equivalent" focal length numbers on the camera instead of the actual focal length of the lens? Those numbers actually mean something when making photos, and I don't see why they felt the need to do that. It isn't a 28-70mm lens, it's an 18-46mm lens. When you get down to brass tacks, most of the people who are buying this camera aren't going to know what those numbers mean...
Hi, I've buy a Panasonic G3 camera with the kit lens 14-42. It's my first pro camera other than the regular compact camera. I miss the zoom on this lens (14-42) and I'm trying to choose a zoom lens to complement my camera. What I like to photograph are: city, street, some people and I love the landscape. I'd try bokeh photos but I'm really a beginner who still has a lot of things to learn.. I always use the camera on holiday so for the 70% of the time, subjects are monuments or beaches. I've...
please could anybody be so kind and tell me if the following choice is a stupid one? i have two reasons for it: one the small lens & its tiny adapters, second the price, i would get 4 different "lenses" for around $700 - and even a fisheye for an extra $ 120, in case i want it later onthis is the combination:LUMIX® GH3LUMIX® G X VARIO PZ 14-42mm / F3.5-5.6 ASPH. / POWER O.I.S.
