Jacques Cornell: Loved the LX3, LX5 and LX7, but sold the latter after adopting Panasonic MFT cams that weren't much bigger. Now hankering after an LF1 as a shirt-pocket cam and wishing Panasonic had fitted it with a 4x or 5x zoom of higher quality.

@HowaboutRAW

I believe you.

The lens on the TZ100 (as you know, also Leica and after I have just been comparing a couple of pix) I would say the the TZ100 is sharper at the short end and not quite as good at the long end. Good enough to satisfy, erm, most people would you say. I do like the high ISO and dynamic range performance of the TZ100 and the amount of detail you can pull from the shadows, in that regard, certainly better than the LF1. TZ100 in shirt pocket = difficult. The LF-1 is amazingly small, perhaps too small.

I loved my LF-1. I thought it was really great. I had some surprisingly good pix from it. I traded the LF-1 for the TZ100. Regarding the LF-1 lens, well, it didn't disappoint me. In lieu of HowaboutRAW's comment it does depend on how you define "isn't especially good". Not knocking HowaboutRAW's comment the LF1 will satisfy some and not others. Buy one and if you don't like it sell it. It doesn't cost much these days. It is a dynamite little camera.

@ zsedcft perhaps you should change your username to 5TFU

@zsedcft, Pretty pathetic is better than some dumb ass ideas in the first place. The argument holds, it is easy to sit on your backside and whine about it.

@zsedcft If innovation isn't really that hard then please innovate and while you are at it change a few industries along the way.

It is easy to sit on your ass and criticise. But would you really want to be in any tech firms R&D dept attempting to come up with the next big innovation? What's your idea for a new innovation then? I wouldn't even like to try.

zakk9: So will I die from AIDS if I don't have a red iPhone or do I need to have sex first?

Sex is optional but the red iPhone is compulsory.

I remember that film! Gave me a headache.

Julian: Some really good prizes there (the new sigma Arts are awesome), is it restricted to UK entries only - or is it open to the world? I went looking for the rules of entry, but not found them yet...

@Fakultativ I believe the phrase "that cuts both ways" is appropriate.

But can the X100F make telephone calls, txt, email, browse the web, download porn, edit pictures, post to social media, etc. ?

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (384 comments in total)

My first camera was the Praktica MTL-5 (which I still have) purchased in the early 80's. Then Pentax P30. My first digital was the Casio QV-10 coming in at a might 250 kilopixels and it was 1995.

Damage done. Human stupid. Clone out.

Stollen1234: i Love Death valley area..the driver should get some Jail time ...

@ The Davinator Yes, I agree with you. But the damage has already been done. I think "for the rest of their lives" is a little extreme considering no one was hurt and considering the Americans are building a ruddy great oil pipe across the country. I wonder about the personal and environmental impact of that.

Although I agree with you, what would jail time actually accomplish?

Docno: Perhaps they should have just left the van there to 'rot'. Might look photogenic after a few years, like those ships on the former Aral Sea. :-)

... and it could have been "photoshopped out".

Biowizard: RIP the very format that brought me out of 35mm Slide Film and into the Digital Age. I still have my E-1, and use it from time to time, though a lot less since moving to the OM-D EM-1. Olympus remains my favourite camera company, and continues to innovate so much more than the SoCaNikons of the world.

Brian

I still have my E-1, I still use it and still get good pictures from it. I have had more cameras than I care to mention but keep on coming back to the E-1.

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (888 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zoom Zoom Zoom: Like it or not, EVFs are the only future. There are positively zero advantages to an optical viewfinder as soon as brightness, contrast ration and pixel density count matches the human eye's resolution limit. And it's almost there. The technical and workflow advantages of EVFs compared to glass, are basically endless. In a few years, except hard-core boutique cameras, there are no optical viewfinders anymore on any camera. In fact, they don't make any sense anymore..as in.. don't we all go look at the back screen display of our cameras immediately after taking a photo? Well, then just look at it directly when you are actually taking the photo. I only respect those who insist in optical viewfinders if their camera is analogue film or if they don't have a back display as well, like with the Leica M-D for example. That's real photography and a workshop that purely justifies no EVFs or screens at all.. just you and your photo. Everything else, is hybrid nostalgic rethoric..

don't we all go look at the back screen display of our cameras immediately after taking a photo?

No, not all. I make a habit of not reviewing photos and prefer to visualise.
