  • One third? Wow ... that's a large percentage. More than I imagined. One out of every three!

  • One of the cameras I own doesn't seem to supply noise reduction where it's not wanted, and that's my Ricoh GR II. The raw files from that camera appear to be very pure to my eyes.

  • I'm of the opinion that Pentax (and other makers) has been "baking in" noise reduction in raw files for quite some time now. I first noticed this in their K-01 and later in their K-30. Canon's 5D...

  • I have mentioned time and time again in these forums and elsewhere that I would never part with my E-5 and lenses. But a family member is suddenly in some financial difficulty. I'm going to help ...
  • Than you for your post.  No, I've not worked with the Panasonic G9.  I'm quite content with the gear I have.  Nice, comfortable place to be.
  • Replied in Factory Reset?
    Thanks Rick. I really don't know how many clicks. If I had to guess, I'd say 5k to 8k. I also own the GR II. It's far superior to the E-1, but the E-1's handling makes it one of the more "joyful" ...
  • Replied in Factory Reset?
    Tried it.  No change.  I'm pretty sure it's the shutter gone bad.
  • My E-1 was just for fun.  My more serious efforts are handled by an E-5, a Fuji X-E2 kit and a Ricoh GR II. The E-500, if I find a good one, will also be for fun. The E-500 body isn't at all as ...
  • I owned the E-510 for a time. Very much enjoyed using that camera. The ergonomics, as I recall, were excellent. But ... the E-500, for all of its limitations ... has that marvelous Kodak sensor. I ...
  • Yes, inserted different batteries, CF cards, changed lenses, changed shooting parameters, etc., etc. Results are always the same. Thanks for the condolences. I'll probably replace it with an E-500.
  • Yes, too soon, but thanks.
  • As I said, it's this way with ALL files, JPEG or RAW ... or the camera's TIF setting.  They look like my sample when viewed on the camera's screen or when read in card reader.
  • Thanks JimB.  Mine never lets me down, either. It's simply a beautiful piece of gear.  Enjoy. And what kind of RV do you drive?  I'm considering getting a Rialta.  Are you familiar with Rialtas?
  • Created discussion thread Did my E-1 just die?
    All of the pictures are like this: Was fine yesterday and all the days before that.  Mechanically, everything works as it should.  Unless someone has seen this before with their own E-1 and has a ...
  • MFT is optimal in many ways ... but in the one way that matters above all others — image quality — MFT is sub-optimal. That's not to say MFT IQ is poor, bad, not good etc. It just means that MFT ...
  • Are you interested in my Oly 12-60?
  • Created discussion thread In the event anyone's interested ...

  • ZeBebito: that's an easy thing to say, but our reactions to ugly cameras has rarely, if ever, been positive. Remember Hasselblad's remakes of Sony point-and-shoots? When all was said and done,...

  • Wow ... hard crowd to please! I think it's, first of all, a terrific looking camera. Right size. Right shape, not to mention the articulating screen, built-in EVF, etc. But where the rubber meets...

  • I'm slowly but surely slimming down my extensive gear collection. This E-1 w/12-60 has been my personal camera kit for several years. Last time I used it was about 2 months ago for some family ...
