  • I have a magazine review that tested OIS on the 100-300 up to 1/1000 sec, and it still provides significant advantage. If I extrapolate the curves (not a reliable thing to do, with changing slope) ...
  • Yes, I know this. I don't find the half-press a problem. Personal preference/technique, probably. Hmm. I can think of other reasons it has OIS. Like to work in conjunction with IBIS to get even ...
  • My experience is similar to yours. On the E-M1 II, though, I thought lens OIS had a slight edge at long focal lengths. Makes sense. But, now with the III, I figured for sure IBIS would be better. ...
  • I think Robin thinks it's tracking in this mode. It actually LOOKS like it, because if you move the camera around, the dancing squares follow the focused object on the screen. That's probably ...
  • Yes, I thought that's what you meant. But, I've never had any problems with noise, so I reverted to thinking about focus stacking.
  • Great read, and a hard problem I have little to no insight on. However, I think: 1. There's always going to be room for the very best and most creative. That is just not in the equipment. 2. Sure, ...
  • Great tip on low-ISO. I was undoubtedly exposing with my standard strategies, which probably are simply not appropriate for low ISO. A story about that shot of Jamie. First, yes, I'm sure you're ...
  • Replied in Museum cruising
    I just love wondering museums with my Panny 20 mm. Both displays and people shooting. I hadn't thought of focus stacking, which would be good, probably, for 3-D displays. But, I bet the Panny 20 ...
  • Fabulous shots! I particularly like and admire the in-water perspective. I am wondering about the ISO 64 shooting. I tried low-ISO for some of  my own shots (not too much) and found it did, really, ...
  • Polarizers are important to me. I have one on my 12-40 at all times, except when the light gets really dim. So, I've been shopping around. Don't look for anything cheap on this list. 1. ...
  • If you start, I'll try to contribute!
  • Perfect shot! We had a fabulous visit to Zambia in 2013. Stayed on the Eastern side, in Kaingo and Mfume bush camps. Elephants are so gorgeous and interesting. As others, I am very jealous you live ...
  • Yup. I just skipped the "white space" and ran down the images. Sorry. It hit me very quickly. I guess I have visual routines looking for ironic signs. I did a photo for a book cover for a friend. ...
  • I'd have called it "Pride and Lines." I'm a sucker for geometry.
  • Nature? Hmm. I liked the two with people, and the last--which is well conceived. It required just a moment's thought.
  • I don't know what you mean by "flexible filters," particularly "for light and contrast." But, I get one central idea here, which is the long-tailed tone curves. That completely makes sense. Got it. ...
  • These are just great! Sometimes camera imperfections (strange tone curves) are just right and very interesting. How much of this was the camera, how much in the careful choice of subject and ...
  • Replied in newcastle
    Honestly, I had to struggle not to imagine people falling off the bridge into the water! Great! Thanks!
  • Would you explain to someone who doesn't do this type of astro shooting why and how you used so many darks, and what the different type are and the purpose they serve? Oh, and, fabulous image!
  • To be fair, I would really have to do favorite-in-a-particular-niche, which would include probably all my lenses, depending on the niche. 12-40: Wanting to "go by the rules" and to break the ...
