  • Jack It must be the way I am viewing them.. They show up as 1000x667, and less than 1Mb, no matter how I try to view them Does anyone else have any suggestions? tom
  • I have had a few 30-110.  The first one came with my v1 kit and was spectacularly good until I dropped it.  Fortunately I had bought a used spare as I used it so much.  That was not quite as good, ...
  • Quick advice 1. Don't go with the adapted lenses, the N1 lenses are good and sharp wide open.  They are also much smaller if you are travelling 2.  Consider buying used on ebay from reputable ...
  • Great.  Lucky you to get the shots.  Are they heavily cropped or downsized?  I would like to see them bigger. tom
  • Many of us agree with you. The X30 was a stroke of genius by Fuji. Unfortunately quality is measured by sensor size and Mp by those who don't understand photography so it never achieved the ...
  • That is interesting. Do you think you could provide more details?  How well does it AF?  (speed, area?) Would it be possible to post an example shot at full zoom (where this lens is weakest)? I ...
  • A very good question, and particularly relevant to me as I am sorting my archives out at the moment. I have about 96,000 photos on disk spread over the last 15 years, taken with a variety of ...
  • I think I used a half case, which gives a bit better grip and protests the bottom of the camera from scratches.  I do the same with my X30 (the one I am using, the other is put safely away) tom
  • I think you are looking at this the wrong way round.  I would say disappointing results with PL 100-400. I am not going to argue the pros and cons of the samples, they are what they are for you.  ...
  • Created discussion thread Are any old lenses worth using?
    I know it is  a lot of fun trying old manual focus lenses (or may be you are lucky and can use an af adapter) but it seems to me that at current prices, there is nothing left worth trying. Be ...
  • If you are not paying over the odds for it, get it! I don't realistically think it will give you such good IQ in low light as the OMDEM10, but you will have a lot more fun using it, and that is a ...
  • I thought it was clear that I was replying to a post about the X10.  I have two X30s and although I am always grateful for advice on how to use them better, feel I have gone beyond description of ...
  • I can probably only give you a partial explanation, and suggest you look up the subject,.  I think a series of articles by Kim Letterman would be a good start, if you can find them. The X10 divides ...
  • The X10 is a great little camera.  If you want to get the best out of it, you will need to understand the workings of EXR and I confess that I have now forgotten.  However there are plenty of ...
  • That's good to hear. Good shooting! tom
  • I don't want to repeat all of what I have said often on this forum on this subject, but in summary a) I like the V3 much more than either V1 or V2 b) I have GX8 and its primary advantage for me is ...
  • What started as a good demonstration of just how good cameras have become (Olympus and others) soon got derailed by the paranoia of one person who could not stand his beloved being questioned. Thre ...
  • There is more difference between M4/3 and APSc than there is between Nikon J5 and M 4/3. No harm in feeling proud and trying to justify your spend on M4/3, but see it realistically I have both N1 ...
  • I am away from my office, and only have access to my laptop with an 11" screen, so my viewing may not be very helpful. However I have the following observation. In all of the 6.7-13 shots you have ...
  • Isabel The problem with a 'sideways' roll on like that is that it may not fit easily down the plane aisle and you will have to pick it up and carry it.  'Upright' roll ons are much easier. The ...
