  • Don't trust Ebay ratings!  The seller I was scammed by, iNotebook Parts in Berlin CT, has a very high rating on eBay, yet some of the "positive" comments like "caused me to lose a customer, and ...
  • WRONG!  eBay's rules are so rigid in terms of deadlines and closing cases that it us easy for fraudsters to get around them, and PayPal proved completely worthless in trying to recover money paid ...
  • I have actually had considerably better experiences with the "unregulated" sites that you mention than with eBay.
  • My experience was much the same as your father's, and I am now fighting not to have the portion of my losses the bank credit card returned re-debited because of blatany lies by the seller.
  • Paypal is a payment mechanism, and has turned out to be totally useless in dealing with a procrastination artist who managed to drag things past its deadlines.
  • I find the mechanical application of the term "image quality" as simply a function  of film or sensor size quite frankly idiotic.  The best "image quality" I've ever seen comes in some of the ...
  • Thank you! This does look like an interesting bag because of the quick-off, quick on system.  Luckily, I can read the German.
  • The particular scammer I dealt with (iNotebook Parts in Berlin, CT) had great Ebay ratings.  Checking a little further revealed a long string of Mac users who had been similarly (endless delay and ...
  • Have occasionally bought and also sold through eBay, but just got badly burned by their complete failure to help me recover almost $500 from a fraudster operating as iNotebook Parts from Berlin, ...
  • It's an interesting bag, but I share your concerns based on the very similar Lowenpro Messenger 250 that I already have. I also a little Tamrac bag barely large enough for the OM5ii or G85 and the ...
  • This does look like an interesting alternative IF I can quickly switch it onto my body for the really rough parts.  I try to do so, after having things break internally (Oly 12 -50) Unfortunately, ...
  • The Think Tank bags that I have bought mostly sit and gather dust.  They are basically designed for larger cameras systems and virtually scream "wealthy photographer" my For active, moving ...
  • I try to ride instead of drive, and am often going to shooting situations - especially video ones - that more or less require zoom, though more likely power zooms like the Olympus 12-50 and ...
  • Thank you for your very thoughtful review of the problem -balance and protection of equipment -and your suggestion of options.
  • Completely agree with dj3 after the humbler experience of trying to use a Panasonic G85 to complement and supplement recent mainly video shoots with my OM5ii. (And I also happen to use a powerful ...
  • The IBIS works extremely well for short to medium focal lengths. In lens stabilization works better for "longer" -in size as well as magnification- lenses This is because the centre-of-gravity for ...
  • The large -even vast majority of former and potential camera buyers is responding to this situation by simply using their cellphones instead of bothering with a camera. After fifteen years of using ...
  • Created discussion thread mFT bag for cycling
    I'd like a way to carry more than a very minimal 1 camera and 1 or 2(small) extra lenses on the rather bumpy and sometimes sweaty 12 km way from our rural acreage into 'toon town (Saskabush). Don't ...
  • I actually posted first there and got no response, so reposted here Actually, that has not been at all the case. A four or five year old Ultrabook plays the videos with no problems. So does my ...
  • Created discussion thread Mac software for G85
    Is there a Mac OS10 version of panasonics video software? Am getting jerky, out of synch playback with especially the 4K video, although the files claim to be MP4. Can find no clear reference to ...
