Have enjoyed taking macro shots of flowers and insects with my Olympus XZ-1 but have recently acquired a nearly new Nikon D90 which I am enjoying immensely. My current kit includes 35mm 1.8, 18-105 kit lens and 70-300 VR. Wondering whether a good beginning for macro with the D90 might be a set of Kenko or Vello extension tubes as opposed to something like the Nikon Micro 60mm 2.8? Would appreciate any advice regarding pros and cons of either approach. Don't think I necessarily need a micro...
Just tried out the TL20 flash I got used from eBay with my XZ-1. I put it in TTL mode and the camera in Auto mode, and it could not get it right. Every shot was pretty strongly overexposed. In P mode with flash intensity dialed down two EV's it did a lot better. I was shooting a tall red and white soft drink cup on a table. I'm thinking the white cup threw off the metering system in Auto? Any info about using this flash will be much appreciated. Thanks, David This one came out sort of okay.
Do you think the Stylus 1's price will drop after a couple of months? I remember I got my XZ-1 for $259 new after it had been out awhile. But I'm thinking the Stylus 1 will command a high price for quite some time. For example the Panasonic's FZ200 doesn't seem to be dropping in value. It's still a hot camera on eBay, for example. The used ones get almost as much as the brand new price. I think the Stylus 1 may maintain it's high value too, because it's unique. What do you think? Thanks, Dave
Hi, First post here.. this is bound to have been asked, but I could not find definitive answer. I am taking product shots against a white paper background. Manual settings. I find fuzzy grey blobs appear any flat pale backgrounds. They appear in several places, their location is unaffected by zoom or aperture, but aperture greatly affects their visibility. They are very obvious at F8, and pretty much invisible at F1.8. I need to use small apertures against pale backgrounds, and editing these...
So, I've been traveling the world for years - first with my Pentax K200D (who died with thousands of beautiful images under her belt) and then with the Olympus XZ-1 - which captured ♥ AMAZING ♥ photos in my years in Asia and the Caucasus mountains. I sold the beauty and tried to settle on the Xperia ZR smartphone for my traveling (still trying, its hard to get accustomed to that quality when youre used to the XZ1). Now, I'll be flying to see the Budapest Christmas market next month and from...
I have an XZ-1 and when I pulled out the card to go upload the photos I noticed that they were all in one folder starting with 100. I took pictures on different days and assumed that they would be grouped by day in different folders. Is there a setting for this or what am I missing? I formatted the card with the camera and also there is a naming option which I have on Auto.
I'm looking to replace my current pocketable camera (a cheapo Olympus auto-everything) with something that allows for full manual control of shutter, aperture and iso. A mirrorless with a pancake lens is not an option, because I'm not willing to sink so much money in this, especially since I already have a DSLR for proper photography. I don't care for the megapixel race, and neither do I need a super-zoom. What I do need is a stabilizer and decent quality in high-ISO modes. I've been browsing...
