  • Well, apparently they don't: http://www.43rumors.com/this-is-the-official-panasonic-statement-about-their-camera-business-plans/
  • I read somewhere that "dismantled" might not have been the exact meaning of the japanese word they used, so, wishful thinking, things may not be as bad as they sound.
  • Oh yeah, I got it now. Yeah, that has been a feature requested for a long time. I hope the developers are working on it. DPReview proud themselves in having a fully customized forum system, which ...
  • Forgive my ignorance, but what do you mean about FAQ can't happen? Has its been banished before? I can't understand a valid reason, or any violation to the forum rules that would justify such a ...
  • Well, I'm very excited to get mine in about 3 weeks, so I'll let you know how it goes. Thankfully I'm not paying for it, since is my assigned computer at work, but I'm upgrading from a perfectly ...
  • Created discussion thread About Mac maintenance articles...
    I recently deleted an article about how to increase performance of your mac, merely because it was a blatant copy of an article in a well known website, so it was plagiarism at its best. One word ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Thanks all for the welcome. I was amazed that there were a ton of flagged threads from 2012 forward. I mostly ignored most of the flags, and deleted the ones made by unknown posters (people ...
  • I don't expect any new technology like dual IS or pro capture to be available on legacy glass, unless there is a firmware update, which I wouldn't expect Olympus to release for any FT lenses.
  • I just became your friendly moderator, and there were flagged messages dating over 5 years old. Anyway, doing some needed cleanup, and putting thing back in order. Now you have who to go to when ...
  • Created question thread USB-C Card Readers for new MBP users
    My new MBP is arriving in a few days, so I'm preparing to get it up to speed on software and hardware. Since it only have USB-C ports, I wonder what you guys are using for reading SD cards. I ...
  • Is not technological, is a business decision. Panasonic and Olympus, even though they share a lens mount, they are competitors after all. Olympus wants you to invest a Olympus cameras and lenses, ...

    I know the xd1 is a Fuji compact. I can still google search. Although, the OP posted it originally on the MFT forum, and it mentions the LX3, which is indeed a Panasonic compact.
  • Well, Tom and I are both moderators here ;) I'd love to service my camera, but I'll have to wait until someone travels to the US to have it serviced, or I go. There is no local support here in ...
  • Replied in + 1 on JJC
    Dead cheap, and as sturdy as the Oly OEM. I only OEM hoods on the lenses that came with them, like the 12-40 or the 35-100 2.8. For the rest, I use JJC all the way. This is the one: ...
  • LOL, life sentence. That's a good one :D That is one of my before-you-die chores I have in my to-do list. And so is visiting Yosemite, and Ansel Adams' museum.
  • Of all the stories that I've heard, indeed Panasonic seems to have less reports of failures than Olympus, but in my case, both have failed or malfunctioned. My E-M1 have been suffering the rear ...
  • But you did said that I left all the moderation to Tom, so me not moderating, was implied. I don't know what is worse, if people think you don't moderate, or if they think you don't care. But that ...
