  • I do test all my cameras and for the interchangeable lens models, all the body/lens combinations.  The test chart is one used for calibrating xerographic copiers.  It's 8.5" x 11" and has air ...
  • Replied in G16 vs S120
    Thank you, Sue Anne, One of my favorite shots regardless of the camera.  On the ship, one evening; before the main show, they showed passenger taken photos on a large screen in the main show ...
  • I really need to tell you that my main cameras these days are a pair of Canon M5's that I bought used.  Both have an add-on hand grip.  The better hand grip is one I built years ago for a Nikon ...
  • Right, it sort of defies logic.  So I ran that test several ways and always got the same results.  Changing to different lenses didn't help much.  I finally figured it was most likely due to a ...
  • Replied in G16 vs S120
    Looking back at the skyline of Buenos Aires as we put out to sea.  Not too bad for a 10 MP sensor.  Shot at -2 steps exposure compensation (-.67) to richen the colors. Looking back at the skyline ...
  • Replied in G16 vs S120
    I suppose the comparison for me is the S95 vs the G7X II.  The benefits of the G7X II are the built in front grip, the larger sensor, and more sophisticated menu adjustments.  Color is also ...
  • Replied in G16 vs S120
    Peter, I used a G15 and an S95 for years and years.  Conceptually, pretty close to the G16, and not quite as close to the S120.  I always favored the S cameras for their pocketability, and ...
  • Lamik, I think those of us who have had the problem are pretty much screwed as far as recourse back to Panasonic.   As far as I know, there has been nothing from them about the issue. My first ...
  • Alastair, The M series cameras have enough available lenses (your point, I think) particularly if one counts the lenses that can be adapted via the Canon EF to EF-M adapter.  And, there are ...
  • For me, the solution was the M5.  It worked out well enough that I bought a second one so I could dedicate one body to EF-M lenses, and one to EF & EF-S lenses with the EF to EF-M adapter.  That ...
  • I think the Petapixel article is spot on in most respects.  However, I think you might see an increase in production of the Z9, as I think it will succeed in its own right, and as parts become ...
  • Your post makes good sense.  I'd be very interested in such a camera.
  • Plus, of course, if you add an EF to EF-M adapter, there are very many more lenses available.
  • Your post makes a lot of sense to me.  I have done a work around with a pair of Canon M5's to basically get to what you suggest.  The first M5 is set up with a light hand grip extender, and the ...
  • For now, nothing!  I have two EF-M lenses, two EF-S lenses and the EF to EF-M adapter for my pair of M5 bodies. However, if Canon were to release an R7 with a 24 or 33 MP APS-C sensor I would be ...
  • When I decided to finally go mirrorless, I finally decided on the M5 and bought a pair of used ones this year.  With both cameras I use an auxiliary hand grip to get a taller grip area and more ...
  • This looks like a good place to jump in.  For many years (I'm 83) I have been making a distinction between "doing photography" and "just taking pictures".   Today, the cell phone is the preferred ...
  • Speaking as an old bald guy (I'm 83 now); I see your point.  And I do have modern digital cameras that are capable of taking video; but I don't DO video.  I'm a stills shooter.  I pretty much use ...
  • @Kokopelli I had to look up Kokopelli.  I pretty much agree with your post.  I also got to thinking about the shift from film to digital.  In both media, there are technical similarities between ...
  • Bill, I usually agree with your posts. However, this time around I disagree with your last paragraph about younger folks formerly using ILC's.  My wife and I have traveled quite a lot (49 cruises, ...
