I'm about to start a photo project about blue collar work in my region. A lot of the photos will be outside in less than ideal conditions including the ocean, farms, factories, logging operations and the mountains. The 6D is newer with a better sensor, while the 1DS MkIII is built like a tank and has a pretty decent sensor to begin with. My question for those with a 6D: Do you think this camera can handle rough environments including rain, snow, sleet, sea spray, dirt, and the occasional...

Hi, I own a Lumix 12-32mm kit and I use with my GF1. I found that the is a visually significant distortion at 12mm. My question is: a. Is this distortion corrected internally in the Lumix cameras like GM1 and GM5? b. If (a) is true then is there a firmware upgrade on GF1 to correct this distortion? I suspect     not. Any one can answer question (a) I would appreciate it? Thanks in advance.

Hi all. I no longer have any Panasonic bodies or lenses (switched to Oly for bodies and lenses) except my venerable old GF1. When it was working (I think I bought it in 2009/10?) it was a great companion on my hikes. I noticed a while back when I took it out just to see if it worked that two problems (maybe related?) appeared. First, each time I'd turn off the camera it would give the message "please close the flash" on the lcd, wait a moment, and then turn off. Second, I can't, with rare...

I have typically been a Panasonic only consumer. The only Olympus camera I have used before is the modified E-PM2 that I use for astrophotography. Therefore, I haven’t done any experiments with the Olympus Autofocus and I am not that familiar with the menu items. I could really use some help on the following questions. I will try to post a setup video for the camera in the next couple of days but I want to make sure I get everything correct first. Thanks for your help on this. 1. Is there a...

I've been using a GF1 for some time now both with legacy lenses and m4/3 lenses, but I want to move to a bigger body. I know the e-3 is an older body but I guess my thinking is the money that I save towards the body I can put into lenses. I was thinking of first picking up the 12-60mm lens to go with the e-3 and then afterwards maybe a prime 35 or 50mm. Any thoughts regarding this would be much appreciated. I'm open to hearing alternative options. Thanks!

What if Canon had produced the LX100? Let’s pretend for a moment that Canon had announced a camera with the LX100’s exact specs and Panasonic had announced a camera with the G7X’s specs. Would you still buy the Canon LX100 or would you have stuck with the Panasonic G7X? How much does brand loyalty play into your decision for cameras that don’t use interchangeable lenses? I wonder if things would be different if Canon and Nikon suddenly started producing cameras that had the same...

I haven’t seen anything that says what “RGB + IR photometry sensor of new 150000 pixel” is. Could RGB + IR photometry sensor mean that some of the pixels are reading IR light to reduce luminescence noise in very low light? In astrophotography we remove the filters from our cameras so that they can see UV and IR light. Then we put very specific filters back on which allow us to just see the light we want. I have several modified cameras that I have also tested in daylight. The data(UV and IR...

I have the GH4 and the 35-100mm F2.8 already. I also have the 25mm F1.4 lens and the 14mm F2.5 lens. However, I shoot mostly video and so I really need image stabilization even with the wider angles. I had considered buying the 12-35mm F2.8 lens but now the LX100 is giving me pause. Its multi-aspect ratio sensor will give me a wider field of view in the 16:9 video mode. It will also give me a more compact wide to medium solution. In fact I could fit the GH4, 35-100mm, 25mm F1.4, and the LX100...

I have a Panasonic 7-14mm modified (using Anders W method of installing the 8.5mm fish-eye rear filter holder) to take gel filters. I have two different 75mmx75mm Kodak Wratten gelatin filter sheets - one is ND 0.9, the other is 2B. I want to install these filters (and swap them in the field, while hiking) - the first to shoot running water/etc., the second to get rid of the purple blobbing issue which is somehow really bad on my lens. Questions: a. How do I figure out which size to cut? Is...
