  • Replied in Thank You
    I want to thank everyone for their thoughtful answers.  I am 90% leaning toward getting the GX9 and not having to go through the effort of learning a new system and the expense of new lenses.  The ...
  • I have used m43 cameras since 2010 when due to heart issues, I could no longer comfortably carry a DSLR and extra lenses.  I have been and am still very happy with my m43 cameras.  My wife and I ...
  • Created discussion thread Question when buying "used camera"
    I am going to buy a Fuji X-E3 camera.  I see several rated as 9 and 10 which are almost new and see some rated as Demo models.  Which do you think is better, a highly rated used camera or a demo ...
  • Created discussion thread Sugru Moldable Glue
    I decided to use back button focus and love it.  The only problem has been that it is hard to press the button on my Lumix GX8 when I am looking through the viewfinder.  I placed a small pledget ...
  • It just works...usually I only like pictures that look "natural" and not overly processed.  In my eyes, you got it right.  It is a beautiful picture. Hal
  • The insurance companies are not in business to lose money.  In almost every major city, the largest buildings and most expensive real estate is owned by the insurance companies.  In the case of ...
  • The only way that I would leave Panasonic and go back to Olympus would be for Olympus to improve their labyrinth menu system. Hal
  • everyone is telling you the same thing.  TRAVEL AS LIGHTLY AS POSSIBLE.  IT WILL BE DAMP.  IT IS DARK IN THE RAIN FOREST.  THE COUNTRY IS BEAUTIFUL.  DO NOT NEED LONG TELEPHOTO IN RAIN FOREST.  ...
  • I hope that you notice that all of us are in agreement about carrying the heavy equipment.  My 14-140 (28-289) was sufficiently long enough.  It is hard to photograph the monkeys and birds in the ...
  • I used an m43 camera and just had a great trip to Costa Rica.  I used my 14-140 and my 17mm 1.7 lens 90% of the time.  I used the 17mm in low light situations and in the Rain Forest when the ...
  • I highly recommend the Pansonic GX85 or GX9.  Panasonic has an excellent lens selection.  A user friendly menu system.  The cameras are small and the IQ is excellent.  The Olympus menu system is a ...
  • I have found that the different forums have different personalities.  Some of the forums can be quite snarky and others are very pleasant and enlightening.  The forums that I have found to be the ...
  • One of my happiest times for me was when I got rid of my Oly OM camera and went back to Panasonic....just hated the menu system.  Was not a fun camera.
  • I like the first one.
  • I have read all the criticism of this picture and understand the validity of the criticism.  However, you DID capture an absolutely great moment.  To the bride and groom, this picture is ...
  • I really think that there is room for both systems.  I very much enjoy the freedom that M43 with the smaller lenses and bodies affords me.  I spent many years carrying heavy cameras and lenses.  ...
  • I have used Faststone for years.  It is user friendly and just a pleasure to use.  It is free to download.  I highly recommend that you give them a donation to keep them in business.  The program ...
  • In 1967, I bought a Pentax Spotomatic Camera.  It was a wonderful camera, the Takumar lenses were very sharp and the meter did a great job.  I always used the meter setting a little to the right.  ...
  • I think that the people who use "real" cameras prefer to work in post processing to attain the desired effect.  I have seen that the P & S camera market has greatly diminished.  The people who ...
  • For online training, I have found Anthony Morganti to be the best.  Very clear very pleasant voice.  I have learned an amazing amount from him especially post processing.  Some of the other ...
