  • Replied in spring
    I guess it depends on where you live. In someways this is a comment regarding what spring (an arbitrary day on the calendar regardless of locale) is where I live. We generally don't see any new ...
  • Thank you for sharing your thoughts and interest! There is some crop, but nothing extreme, obviously it was down scaled as well. The lack of sharpness is a pp choice, I was aiming for a sublime ...
  • Largest market share of what? M4/3s?
  • I put a link to his thoughts here https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59333427
  • I'd expose properly and then up exposure and lower contrast in post. That'll probably be a good start. Also desaturate.
  • Created discussion thread Thom talks panasonic..
    Some people like him, some hate him. Personally I think he offers well reasoned positions. Anyways, Thom share his thoughts on Panasonic: ...
  • One large factor is that Fuji sales are trending up while Panasonic's trend down. Fujifilm is really starting to pickup steam.
  • Panasonic's share of the mirrorless market has been plummeting every year. They just aren't selling either. I like Panasonic's stuff and will be very sad if they leave the market but I wont be ...
  • The GH5 isn't reassuring in and of itelf. Samsung left right after releasing the monster NX1 that in many ways is still the best mirrorless camera. And they did it after releasing a similar ...
  • why amazon? The same thing happens with amazon. They are the people who really started this whole try at home and return if you don't like it. At least B&H inspect returns to make sure they are ...

  • I think we are getting better art as well. Some of the project books available today are simply amazing. And there is some great stuff all over the internet, you just have to sift through a lot. ...
  • personally I believe that their is more good photography than ever before and I believe that is mostly due to the fact that it has gotten easier technically.
  • I think there is a big difference between family photos and art, but I think both greatly benefit from the removal of the technical learning curve. Think of how many missed masterpieces their were ...
  • I think removing the technical learning curve has been the best thing for photography as it forces people to face the artistic learning curve. Before it was common for people to get sidetracked by ...
  • Replied in adapt or die
    Indeed and I've lived in primarily rural and remote areas (currently I live in a city of 60,000 which I'm sure many Americans would consider a small town as well). Even when I ventured into larger ...
  • Replied in adapt or die
    The use of that term implies I could help others with minimal effort on my part but choose not to. I've personally brought a few people into the hobby so I think I'm doing my part. It's not up to ...
  • Replied in adapt or die
    I haven't had a local camera store in over a decade. Shopping and photography has never been better for me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • I wont speak for others but I'm confident the time of the standalone camera is coming to an end for all but a tiny niche. But I don't think this will be due to or even hastened by the demise of ...
  • Hopefully no ones points out to these poor souls that likely the camera was tested by a mere mortal when it came off the line as well.
