  • Replied in Beams
    In Grand Teton National Park, but taken away from the mountains for a change. The color version is nice but I like the subtle tones in monochrome due to the morning mist. Dick
  • Wonderful feel of peaceful setting. Sky overexposed but I don't think it hurts the effect in this case. Dick
  • Recently acquired the ZS70 for its super-zoom and to carry around all the time. I had read all about how noisy it is and it's true, it's pretty bad at least in comparison with my m43 gear. The ...
  • Thanks. It does well with landscapes too, and sure is easy to carry around!
  • Wasn't sure how the smaller sensor would work given I'm a long-time m43 user, but it's pretty good for critters with the long zoom. Dick
  • Replied in Three bucks
    Andrew, Thank you. I was impressed myself with how well the images shot at ISO 3200 came out (it was very early morning and still quite dark). The G9's sensor and DXO PhotoLab's Prime noise ...
  • Replied in Three bucks
    It was amazing to me, also, and I'm used to seeing a lot of deer around where I live. The unfortunate thing is that due to the surging growth in the area, the deer are being squeezed into a ...
  • Replied in Three bucks
    Went on an early morning walk  with a friend on one of our local hiking trails. We had the good fortune to be accompanied for almost 2 hours by 3 good-sized whitetail deer bucks.  Luckily I had my ...
  • Went through the same internal debate for months, finally traded my G85 for the G9 right before a trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons. I'm so glad I did, even though when you look at the individual ...
  • Forgot to answer question about battery charging; I only have the Panasonic charger and batteries and yes, they do seem to take a long time to charge, but that's a BIG battery. I haven't timed it, ...
  • I also have the G9 and PL 12-60, and it's a great combo. Can't help you much with JPG settings because I primarily shoot RAW. However, lately I've been experimenting with the digital teleconverter ...
  • Replied in Hard to judge
    boxerman, Thanks for your comments and analysis, but I had not intended to make this a scientific comparison so obviously did not take enough care to make the conditions as alike as possible. it ...
  • Created discussion thread JPG/digital zoom vs. cropped RAW
    I'm usually a RAW-only shooter, processed in ACR or DXO PhotoLab. I often go out to shoot scenery and wildlife with a friend who uses a Pany FZ1000 bridge camera, JPGs only. She gets some amazing ...
  • 2nd the motion on DXO Photolab. I use Adobe CC2018 also, but DXO is easier to get good results with little manipulation and also does a better job on distortion for wide angle lenses like the ...
  • Love this lens although as someone mentioned you have to relearn the rules for composing shots. Here are a few from this week, with the 8-18 on the GX9. I'm still learning! Dick
  • Yes. I would have thought after many years of using PS and Epson printers the transition to the P600 would be easy. Wrong!
  • As a follow-up, here is what I have found and I'm happy to say I have managed to start getting good prints from the P600. The main problem seems to be that my monitor profile was not being used in ...
  • Yes, I'm pretty sure all those kind of details are OK. I've been printing on Epson photo printers using Photoshop for many years now, including most recently the 2880 that I had great success with ...
  • I had been using Relative which is what I normally use for majority of prints. Just tried Perceptual and no appreciable difference in the blues. Also tried Moab Luster with the test chart and Moab ...
  • Well, thanks for the warning but too late now.  I have not ever used them and don't think I would want to in the future.
