  • Created discussion thread Where to go in Mumbai?
    I will have a free Saturday during a business trip in Mumbai. I'm not interested in 'tourist attractions' that much. I'd rather spend the day taking pictures, I like street/portraits. Can someone ...
  • it's interesting that you are using exactly the same camera (5D) to make the opposite point that I made (BTW I had the 5D myself, what a wonderful camera!). So you're saying that the increase from ...
  • Created discussion thread Have we reached a plateau in M43?
    Every time Olympus comes up with a rebate program (€100 for E-M10 II or E-M5 II until December) I start debating "should I update my E-M5?". But every single time I don't (as I won't this time). Th ...
  • 1) As all the reviews say, 24mm is not that great on the corners, not even stopped down. I'm not that interested in corner sharpness at 24mm... but if you are (maybe for landscape?) it's something ...
  • Mmmh, maybe snap focus is not exactly the right wording (it's more a Ricoh GR thing). "Zone focus" would be more appropriate. Anyway here's a very good explanation on how to set it up with the G7X: ...
  • Created user review thread DPreview review is misleading
    DPreview review of the G7X doesn't make any sense. Olympus E-M5 user here, wanting an almost-pocketable camera ("always-with-me"). I was going to buy a RX100 I for €280 on amazon, but that deal ...
  • My G7X has just arrived, and it seems I can take a picture even if the focus is "yellow" (meaning the camera couldn't focus). I'd rather have the camera NOT take a picture in this state. Is this ...
  • Created discussion thread New alternatives to RX100 M1?
    I would like a small "always with me" camera to complement my Olympus OMD E-M5. Here in Italy Amazon is selling it for €280, which seems a good price. Any other alternatives? It's a 2012 camera, ...
  • I was in the same boat, and went for the Billingham because the Retrospectives are waaay too heavy. I didn't invest in a light system to have a bag that is heavier than the camera + lenses that it ...
  • That sounds like a bug to me. 1/focal length should be used in electronic shutter too. Does this happen with E-M5 II and E-M10 II too???
  • Created discussion thread Focus points and touch focus
    Maybe it's a silly question, but I don't understand the relation between the focus points and the touch focus. On my E-M5 I can focus using the monitor. So it doesn't seem to me that the number of ...
  • Created discussion thread E-M5 Iso at 1/3 steps: real?
    My old Canon 5D had "not-real" ISO steps: ISO 320 was the same as ISO 200 pushed in post-production. So I never used the 1/3 increments. Is the E-M5 the same? Are 1/3 ISO increments real or I can ...
  • Created discussion thread panasonic 12-32 corners
    Some reviews say the corners are very good, almost good as the center. Some others say they're quite behind no matter the aperture. Any user here that can comment?
  • I would say that the Think Tank Retrospective 10 is elegant enough http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/847339-REG/Think_Tank_750_Retrospective_10_Shoulder_Bag.html But it's very heavy, don't ...
  • Very interesting thread, I'm in the same boat. At the moment I think I'll just stay with the E-M5, don't see any improvement worth the kind of money needed to do the switch (I mostly do street ...
