**** This Week Thru Your M43 (February 2, 2013) ****
The M43 Onion - Return of the Panasonic Road Map
This just in -- Panasonic has released some dream lenses on their roadmap. No we are not talking about the 42.5 f1.2 and the 150 f2.8. There's more! Panasonic is into supporting m43 for the long term and making sure we have lenses to look forward to. Panasonic have also added to the road map the following lenses to be "released sometime during the millennium." M43 shooters were saying that they can't wait. Well, actually they might be right. Some forward thinking m43 users have pre-ordered these lenses and hired lawyers to add these lenses in their Will for their grandchildren to use. Indeed, M43 is the best format for "legacy lenses." <Ducks for cover>

In this part of Southern California the winter rains green up the pasture lands.
Hey, it's winter, so how do you test a new camera? In town!
GH3/14mm/ in the WORST possible light (darkly cloudy, drizzling, almost twilight).
The GH3 acquitted itself EXTREMELY well, and I am quite happy with it.
Hopefully Spring won't wait too long this year, and I can get some more interesting subjects to shoot outside
I mostly use my GF1/Voigtlander 25mm/f0.95 for close focus stuff these days (partly because it is so cold outside). This is a home made Christmas card from a few years ago.
And this is a birthday card I made a few days ago using 100 year old stencils. My stone stamp says quite a lot about me....made in China several years ago.
I like both but the 2nd one with the Cranes(?) is superb!
I agree. Nice sharp capture. Good composition.
I've used a few of these in other subject-speciific posts -- I hope you don’t mind. I was in New Ireland taking photos for a tourist website. Fascinating place.
AND back in Rabaul after a week away, Tavurvur volcano was still smoking and (as a result) disrupting airline movement because that smoke comprises very fine, very abrasive dust.
A quick snap yesterday of a girl from our village proud of her newly asymmetrically braided hair. I used the stupid little accessory flash for fill and shot on iA on the E-PL3. Yes, that flash shadow can be seen but if I want to I can take care of that and it is certainly preferable to the non-fill alternative.
So there you have it, folks, a pretty entertaining week for me here in the New Guinea islands.
Lucky you to get such a wonderful opportunity...and to take such good photos (maybe it is not so much luck as skill/eye?). Fascinating place. I am interested aspects of the ethnology of this area and have just finished reading the Rev Gill's "Myths and Songs from the South Pacific" 1876. The Victorian missionaries have a lot to answer for! Would love to visit but it seems an awful long way from Blighty.
Well, I think so, anyway! Yes, it is true the missionaries had a lot to answer for -- but not all of them. The Kwato Mission,a breakaway group from the London Missionary Society, got the mix right in my view, for example. And the LMS generally was pretty good. Look up "Tamate". I make reference to him here:
Also back in the 60s I met some old Catholic priests and nuns who had been totally absorbed by their beliefs on one hand and the congregations they worked with on the other. Lovely people building bridges.
A good read for what it was all about really, though, is "Rose" a novel by Martin Cruz Smith, in which he highlights the role of the missionaries in general in subjugating vast populations and making them slaves of the western industrial machine.
Well composed, good picture.
I like the pictures, only thing is that I think they look better a bit darker. Maybe you have not compensated on camera.
This one will do fine in black and white.
