  • Well my comment about M4/3 was in reference to how the old photographers back in the day 35MM first appeared reacted to the then tiny 'format'.  Actually everything you wrote about M4/3 was said ...
  • Created discussion thread All things come full circle
    As I was posting in a forum about the future of photography it occurred to me a circular event was unfolding.  When one looks at the cameras used by the 'Old Masters', before the rise of 35mm, ...
  • The ILC market has dropped 16% this year over last year which had dropped below the year before and so on!  I traded S&P options and if I were trading camera industry options I be heavily into ...
  • Take a look at the latest sales figures. The new generation has more money than we had and more options available. My son owns a 3 bedroom condo with his own roof deck in Chicago. Even his friends ...
  • The latest Photo Industry sales figures are giving all camera companies sleepless nights! The new generation doesn't care about any camera except the one in their cellphone. I have one son, three ...
  • The price of the Sony 100-400 is about $2500 USD while the Panasonic 100-400 is about $1350 USD.  Then there is the fact that these lenses don't even compare as one is FF and one M4/3.
  • Thanks for your civil contribution to this discussion!
  • I'll bet if you were standing in front of me you'd find a reason to be more polite because it doesn't take much to brave behind a keyboard!  Besides that you'd have to crop your Nikon 300mm image ...
  • Perhaps but wouldn't a Nikon 600mm F8 be a better matchup in this instance pertaining to size, weight and FOV? https://camerasize.com/compact/#692.506,794.476.4,ha,t
  • Replied in My history.
    How about 'Dr Dos'?  I used it for a while and thought it was better than MSDOS at the time.  Even further back remember the intimidating screen with the blinking cursor before windows?  There was ...
  • Had my first my first computer in 1979 an Atari 400 then started building my own PC's because Apple was a closed system.  I used to update regularly but haven't really found the need to since ...
  • What new customers will spend $3000+ usd for a camera that's better than a cellphone? I'm the only one in my family that still uses a camera but am 67. So how many new people under 50 are buying...

  • Replied in Here it is
    Well I imagine that FF Panasonic body is going to be very pricey and adding the adapter would make even more unless Panasonic will include it.  So for maybe $3000+ USD  I will have a FF body to ...
  • The tech has changed significantly since 2013 but the terminology from 1979 (the year I had my first computer) remains as 4-bit is still 4-bit and so on along with many new terms. Browsers were ...

  • After reading posts on cameras, lenses, monitors, computers, software, etc I got to wondering just what percentage of one's photos actually see the light of day.  Out of the thousands of photos a ...
