  • My only problem with this is that to become a Pro member, I cannot use my SmugMug account (where I already pay), but I have to use a Yahoo account. And the point is that I haven't forgotten how ...
  • Can we get a full review please? With comparometer and all?

  • Bah, I've had my LX100 for years and no dust issues at all.

  • Yes, I did more tests.  As a macro lens it is great.  BUT, at infinity, it is really nothing special.  It won't replace my 45mm/1.8 I am afraid... Oh well.   But again as a macro lens, it's really ...
  • The reason is that I do a lot of macro photography, for which the 60/2.8 is far more suitable.  I am just wondering whether the copy I got is a good one, or whether there's something wrong with ...
  • I have the Olympus 60/2.8 macro lens, which many people say is a very sharp lens.  However, at infinity, the results I get are all but sharp, and I get a distinct pattern that looks like camera shake:
  • Replied in See this....
    Interesing Rube, and nice photos! Do you bring the camera up when you shoot, or do you shoot from your hip?  Do you walk around with the camera ready in your hand?
  • I don't see why it is absurd.  Before launching a product, you make sure the distribution, advertising, _and_ product partnerships are in place.  Panasonic could well have provided Capture One in ...
  • I had an LX100II on preorder but I decided to cancel it. The camera is $1000, but then, I noticed that Capture One is not able to develop its RAW images. This is rather unprofessional of Panasonic, ...
  • Earthing means wearing a wrist strap connected to the (preferably metal) workbench to prevent you from fleeing before reassembling the camera -- no I meant, so that you do not build static ...
  • The problem fundamentally is that the iPhone does not give reality accurate results, but processed ones.  The Ricoh is more accurate. To compete, you need to process the Ricoh output, that is, use ...
  • You can get exactly the colors you want, with a detail that is just incredible -- but -- the answer is the one you rule out, to use RAW.  Otherwise, you might be happier with the iPhone or with ...
  • I was about to order an LX100II when I realized that my Capture One 10 would not support its raw files.  Indeed, even the new version of Capture One does not seem to support the LX100II yet.  Does ...
  • Replied in See this....
    But can't you just configure the camera so that the back button retains the focus also when you release it?  Then you focus on the pool of light with the back button, and when you want to take a ...
  • Replied in See this....
    You seem to be using 0.02mm as the circle of confusion there.  But a GRII pixel is 0.0048, or 4 times smaller.  So that seems a high estimate (and that is the difference between my numbers and yours).
  • This makes a lot of sense... I need to try it for street photography.  So far I keep it at infinity focus, with the idea that if I need to grab a quick panorama shot while biking, I will be able ...
  • Created discussion thread How is the XF10? Is it sharp? Good?
    How is the XF10?  How does its sharpness compare to other cameras you have? It has 24 MP; would you say those are sharp pixels?  Better than the Ricoh GRII? I would be interested in user reports...
  • Created discussion thread How do you use snap focus?
    I am very new to the GR, and so far I like it a lot.  I use it for hiking / landscape / mountain biking photos -- so far.  I still have to use as a street photography camera. I see many of you ...
  • Thank you, this is really quite interesting.  Let me do more experiments then with various development software (Capture One, Olympus Viewer) and post some results.
  • Created discussion thread Pen-F mushy raw shadows
    It took me a long time to diagnose it, but this is my best understanding of the issue. For long time I have noticed that the Pen-F raws generally look better than the ones from the E-M1, with more ...
