  • Very handy and helpful. Thank you!
  • For me, it would be if Panasonic and Olympus would rediscover the photographers who are enthusiasts, not pro's or pro wannabes, and primarily interested in still photography, not advanced ...
  • My primary reason depends on subject, lighting, what lens I'm using and what shooting mode I'm using. Sometimes, I'm primarily interested in using a particular shutter speed and let the camera set ...
  • Absolutely right. Two things come to mind here. First, while today's oh-so-smart cameras will screw up at times, you get to see the result immediately and take corrective action. Back in the Rollei ...
  • Replied in Costco
    That's a leap not supported by logic. For it to be valid, Shutterfly would have to be equal in convenience and quality with Costco's image printing and related services in the OP's judgment. The ...
  • Super cheap filters are typically "get what you pay for" disappointments. Lensrentals did testing of UV filters awhile back and found a somewhat pricey Hoya model to be best-in-class, truly ...
  • Score another one for Murphy's Law. Oh well. Last March, wired.com published an article that could be of help to those wondering what to do next, now that Costco has pulled the rug out from under: ...
  • End of the wing and tail feathers appear quite sharp. That's apparently where the camera focused.  Were you using single-point AF? That 300mm telephoto has very shallow depth of focus. That appears ...
  • I can recommend Kastar batteries, sold on Amazon, without reservation. I've used several of them over quite a few years. I encountered one new Kastar LPE12 that for some reason wouldn't charge a ...
  • The M50 Mk.II "refurb" with 15-45mm kit lens and a small sling bag was recently offered on Canon USA's online outlet site for $399. ( I couldn't resist. So, I didn't :-D ).  If that deal isn't ...
  • The m100/m200 models definitely have the edge on compactness. With either it will help if you are very comfortable taking pictures with a smartphone because you will have to learn  and use the ...
  • Maybe I can help out. Nigvo's experiment was unsuccessful in your opinion . To keep repeating your opinion and insisting on its correctness as if you have revealed some great eternal truth makes a ...
  • Ever smaller 4-way controllers, buttons and tiny, light-grey legends on black background. I like small, compact cameras but recognize there is a limit to how miniature things can get before ...
  • Replied in lockouts
    I just think Canon looked out across a photographic world in which there was this incredibly large buildup of EF and EF-S mount cameras and lenses, and shuddered. Really good cameras with plenty ...
  • You used your gear and then your software to get the result you were after. Good idea well executed with a great result. Bravo.
  • The hysteria signaled by triple exclamation marks aside, don't be surprised if you see the terrific M6 Mk.II offered on Canon USA's Web outlet from time to time over the next three years . Yes, ...
  • I understand your feeling; it's intuitive enough. To understand mpb's, consider a range of things their dealmaker considers to arrive at an offer for a prospective seller. Such as: item specifics  ...
  • From the Online Phtogrqapher blog, edited by Mike Johnston, Tuesday, March 28, 2017 Steve Sanders R.I.P. "I'm sorry to report that Steve Sanders has died at the age of 64. His website "Steve's ...
  • Why, when it could be "reborn" as a new and somehow slightly improved EVF DCR? Reborn  for a new and greatly improved (for Canon) R-level price, of course. ;-)
  • Your new camera is very nice and a good deal. Your cat is priceless. Congratulations on both.
