  • Replied in On the fence
    Hi Folks, Thanks for the replies, but as my OP was three weeks ago, I have already picked up a new phone.  After seeking additional feedback from those who I know who've switched from Apple to ...
  • Thank you all again for the great suggestions. Mea culpa - I went through my memory card tonight to pull a few pics on to the Mac, and what I saw is embarrassing..... Based on the variance between ...
  • Thanks all for the great suggestions.  I hadn't considered a fish-eye with pp.  Very affordable idea. Funny, when I bought the camera, I was excited about the crop factor, as I was concerned about ...
  • Created discussion thread Affordable wide angle options
    So first vacation with my OM-D E-M10ii and I enjoy the portability of the camera. Unfortunately, when visiting Key West and Nassau, I found the 14-42 kit lens didn't go wide enough to take photos ...
  • Created discussion thread Old Lens Question - Focus
    Afternoon All, I am so much enjoying my new Olympus OM-D E-M10ii that I decided to do something fun with my old Pentax glass that I had for my ME and K1000, and my PZ-10 35mm cameras. As Henry's ...
  • This one was bought through Wish, but the same sellers also usually sell through AliExpress and Amazon. I picked one based on its star rating and reviews from customers.  The one above (for ...
  • I've gone a couple of ways on this. First, I picked up two used speedlites at the local Henry's store. Although they are built to work with Nikons, they have wireless sync, and I have been able to ...
  • Created discussion thread On the fence
    Hello all, So it is time for a phone upgrade, and I am very much on the fence as to what to do. I have only owned three smartphones - an iPhone 5, a 6+ and my current 8+. That I have begun ...
  • An interesting experience with the Pentax 50mm. Firstly, it was completely unsuitable for portrait work around the house. Effectively a 100mm lens, it was difficult to frame anything correctly. Sec ...
  • Well I did do another reinstall, made sure I had the IJ drivers, and have been printing successfully except for when I change any print settings. I've printed bordered and borderless 4x6, 5x7 and ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon Pro-100 size issues
    Hi all, Recently acquired a Canon Pixma Pro-100 for printing photos.  However, I am having some issues. When printing on quality Canon stock (Photo Gloss II and Pro Luster) my images are not ...
  • Actually reading every post in this thread = 0 Trying some slave flashes so I can get better pictures of my dogs = 10 Though in fairness to the OP, my answer would be “Largest sensor camera that ...
  • Was heading to the store in a bit, so thought I would go see the difference in tank sizes. This is what I found for the ip8720: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART163199&actp ...
  • Appreciate your feedback on this.  The ip8720 is approx $100 cheaper in Canada right now.
  • Curious as to what printer you ended up with? The Pro-100 has a lower estimated cost of operation than a Pro-10 as per the nice folks at Red River papers ($0.26 per 4 x 6, $0.875 per 8 x 10) - ...
  • I have ordered a compact LED constant light panel to use around the house, as I do like the idea of setting the exposure under the actual picture conditions. The lightbulbs aren’t bad (LED warm ...
  • Created discussion thread Prime Lens for MFT Camera
    Hello All, Been an interesting reintroduction into photography - I find I seem to be relearning things I knew years ago. With my new OM-D E-M10 MkII, I am looking for a prime lens to use with it. ...
  • But of course!  Analog multimeters are useless for DC voltage readings. Good to hear.  The Vivitars were always good flashes when I shot 35mm.
  • Created discussion thread Vivitar 2800 - I’m good, right?
    Before hooking up an old flash, I thought I’d give it a quick google.  After doing so, I suddenly became concerned I could damage my OM-D E-M10 MkII with too high a trigger voltage. So I put the ...
  • Interesting as I also went through a similar situation to you a few weeks ago.  I had started looking for a compact pocketable camera for travel, then took a member’s suggestion and checked out ...
