  • Did this image start out as a raw capture?  If not, then you probably won't be satisfied with the DR of any camera.  Post processing will almost always be required to pull out the detail. Even your ...
  • Thanks to all that replied - Hen3ry, "will focus" gets the prose award for his pet squirrel story.  That's the stuff movies are made of. And as far as light, we can thank Photoshop and the ...
  • That's a great story, and it brings up a host of questions relating to pet squirrels.  Can they be housebroken, did Angus stay outside, ever bite an over-curious child, etc.? My direct contact with ...
  • It was mostly hearing.  Three young squirrels were up in a tree, chattering and playing, not paying much attention to me.  One of them stopped briefly to check me out, and I was lucky to get a ...
  • Created discussion thread Fear of heights
    Hiking thru neighborhood wooded area. The G85 + 100-300ii is a good walk around combination, light enough to be carry comfortable but still able to achieve good images in dim light. Cleaned up in PS. ...
  • Replied in Wabbit!
    Now what do I need to complete the Looney Tunes grand slam - coyote, canary, cat, pig, duck, ... The Tasmanian Devil might be the toughest. Richard Southworth
  • Replied in Love it + 1
    Thanks for all the good words.  The rr was actually in a neighborhood, although we have several natural areas.  Even at 600 mm equivalent I was far enough away so that the subject was fairly ...
  • Created discussion thread Beep-beep
    I've seen a couple of these around the neighborhood, but this was the first time one stopped long enough for me to shoot.  Had the 100-300 all the way out, but still had to do a heavy crop, this ...
  • Maybe a bad memory card?  Try a different brand. Richard Southworth
  • Yes, but the flash won't operate unless it has focal plane mode.  1/160th of a second is the fastest time that allows the first curtain to open all the way and leave a millisecond or so for the ...
  • No, with a normal flash the sync speed is limited to 1/160 second.  A focal plane capable flash, i.e. one that keeps the flash running for the entire time the shutter "slit" passes in front of the ...
  • I believe my G85 does what you desire, if I understand correctly. I have the AE/AF Lock button set in the menu to lock exposure. In M I set the aperture to f3.5 at the full wide angle end of my ...
  • Created discussion thread Spring has sprung in San Antonio
    Not that we had much winter, high eighties yesterday, although more comfortable in the low seventies today. This fellow was giving me the eye on my daily walk.  Couldn't get real close, zoomed all ...

  • I don't believe it's invalid - one can do a point-in-time utility comparison between two products, the fact that one has come down its price curve is not particularly relevant when we're trying to ...
  • I agree, it's easier to make good shots of a nutcracker, with saturated colors and sharp edges.  Not trying to be competitive with the OP, just thought the G85 also does a good job at high ISO.  ...
  • Ok, I'll throw in an image from my G85, at ISO 12800. First one is full image, second is 100% crop. Image is raw using ACR Adobe Standard profile. No adjustments away from default except Luminance ...
  • Any reference on auto-focus?  Since it's a non-Panasonic lens, I assume DFD doesn't come into play, how "snappy" is it acquiring focus? Richard Southworth
  • IMO yes, Panasonic may not disclose everything that went into the upgrade. Richard Southworth
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rU04yies50&feature=youtu.be I'm not good at video panning, very little experience. I started out smooth, but the later jerkiness is all me. Richard Southworth Added ...
