  • Looking forward to hearing your appraisal of it. I don't see the model number, but I assume it's an FZ55. I've thought about ordering one of those, too, but one feature I find I just can't live ...
  • Replied in Thank You
    Not for this thread in particular, but it's just that your recent participation in this forum has renewed my interest in the challenges, at least to the point of having fun voting again.
  • I might differ on a couple things. For instance, on a full-frame camera, f/1.4 might not provide enough depth of field to satisfy me, or it might have other issues like heavy vignetting or ...
  • The color and reflection are very appealing in your picture.

  • Sorry to say I only gave your picture 4 stars during voting; I seem to appreciate it more each time I look at it!

  • I love the reflection in the rippled water.

  • Thank you for entering this beautiful picture. It was my favorite in the challenge!

  • Depends on where in the US you live. The county where I live in Texas has no leash law (not being a pet owner at present, I just called the county office to check), though individual cities within ...
  • Replied in Olympus E-450
    I've kept just four cameras, and the newest of them is a 2015 model. They all get used, but my favorite is the Olympus E-450 DSLR that I bought in 2009. I've only used it with the standard 14-42mm ...
  • Thank you for that.  And for providing the links; I should have thought to do that.
  • Replied in lenses
    I agree with others that waiting to buy until you see what specific needs crop up is a good idea.  I will say that my dad was in the same situation as you (though with Pentax brand), and the only ...
  • Simple is best for me. I don't really understand the explanation of how the Cambridge in Colour diffraction calculator is deficient, but I do know that its information correlates well with test ...
  • At present, I don't believe I have the equipment or eyesight to discern differences that might be obvious to those I share pictures with, so I depend on test/review sites to help inform my choices. ...
  • That Canon lens, while inexpensive, does test out well for sharpness in the reviews I've read of it. For that matter, the 14-42 kit zoom on my Olympus DSLR also tested quite well for resolution. Wh ...
  • Quite true, and I can see where the last setting a person makes could be said to be the cause of any over or under exposure. For me, that's usually the shutter speed because for my mostly static ...
  • Thanks for all the good information about the P880. I have an FZ300 that I'm happy with for a camera in that form factor, but maybe there's room for one more photographic toy!
  • Yes, same as it is with slide film. Weird! As if a person sets exposure first, then chooses the ISO. No sir, the ISO is a condition that, like the prevailing light condition, is taken into account ...
  • That's a nice set of pictures! I'm curious, though, how much of the great color I'm seeing was from post-processing.  I only checked one image, but it showed Picasa being used. My goal is always ...
  • Replied in not sure
    One source says 27.5 million ounces of silver was used for "photography" out of the 1242.4 million ounces total used in 2022; however, I don't know if that includes the silver used in the making ...
  • Thanks for posting the question; I had an interesting time just dabbling in Google search to see a few articles about HDR and phones and such. From your EXIF data, it looks like you had Dynamic ...
