  • 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.
  • Well, that's interesting. I opened the Digital Dog test image (recommended by pixelgenius) in PS and soft-proofed it with Epson Luster profile. Everything went toward magenta and not only that, ...
  • Not using a color reference but will do that next. I'm just comparing screen images of my photos in PS with prints, which was always a good match with R2880. HP wide gamut display is profiled with ...
  • I'm using standard Epson and Moab profiles for the P600 with Photoshop control and both have the problem. Just tried printer control and color looks pretty good, but don't like to use that method. ...
  • OK, I see what you mean about the cleaning cycle, but it seems to go on forever. The R2880 didn't do that. Is this a scheme to use more ink? :-) Running some test charts to figure out where the ...
  • Created discussion thread Very disappointed in Epson P600
    I replaced my old R2880 that had given me a lot of good years of service; it just finally couldn't be unclogged anymore, although clogging had never been a major issue with it. I got the P600 and ...
  • Interesting, I didn't  know they were still alive. I was a big fan of PN several years ago but gave up on it when they seemed to go to sleep and never updated it. Also there were some issues with ...
  • All taken today on a Nature Club walk, with the 14-140 lens. What a nice combo!
  • Yes, I definitely notice more ability to crop with 20MP. In general the IQ just seems better than the G85. The EVF is not as good but I find it adequate. I've been looking at the G9 as an upgrade ...
