  • I was heavily involved in Olympus back in the day and in 2007 I had a lengthy conversation with them about all of this. In a nutshell, Oly said if you want the same separation, you need to move 1/3 ...
  • It's against forum rules to comment about moderation. I believe it is a bannable offence. This thread will likely get pulled.
  • Replied in Funny...
    You might hate it, but you love it. :-) Also, you have a lot to say to anyone wanting to compare equipment.
  • Replied in Prints?
    It depends on what you shoot. Back in the day, there was a professional photographer shooting waves in light and enlarging them them 24 x 36 inches. The E1 makes really nice 16 x 12 inch prints ...
  • It's nice to know that some things in this world never change.
  • That is a huge improvement. And I'm not sure you have to go all the way to SHG to get it either. Remember when 4/3rds was first announced, there was only normal and pro. SHG came later.
  • Replied in ummm ...
    So can a phone camera ... as is evidence by progressive fall in the sales of all cameras since the phone cameras become common. When people start earning 6 figure incomes from 4/3rds kit (like top ...
  • I don't have a definitive answer. My experience suggests that Oly's AF algorithms are sometimes their own worst enemy. I had a lot of more focus errors with the E3 over the E1, for example, even ...
  • Hey Peter, The PDAF has to gather light. The smaller the area, the less sensitive the focus is. Therefore, in order to compete with larger sensor cameras, the AF has to be a similar physical size. ...
  • I wish you luck with this. I had this issue with the E3 as well. I was shooting beside someone with an D300 and he locked immediately and I couldn't get the E3 to lock at all. The target was small ...
  • Commented on photo Leafless Tree. in the Supermoon! challenge

    I was wondering the same thing.

  • Created discussion thread Interesting little colour comparison
    This is the calgary camera shop guy comparing out of camera jpgs between camera systems.
  • Replied in Enlighten me.
    If you can't think of a reason to buy a certain lens, you probably don't need it.
  • Well, for me that is genuinely surprising. :-)
  • Loyal customers are stupid. The company doesn't care except that you give them money. Consider this:
  • If the worse thing to complain about in camera offerings today is the nature of the physical screen adjustment (remember when screens didn't move at all?), then obviously things are good in the ...
  • Underexpose and boost the file in post.
  • Replied in dudette
    agreed Fair enough. But I think you understood that is what the original poster meant.
  • Replied in hmmm
    I've gotten used to DPReview being slow on reviews but they're now late on major announcements as well. They really have lost their original raison d'etre. Now it's sell sell sell ... who cares ...
  • :-) I'm not American and didn't notice this connection. However, now that you have pointed it out, I stand by it. ... unless DoF becomes a limiting factor. Then it is possible for the two systems ...
