  • Yes, big problems indeed, the refugee situation seems a total mess! It's funny that you mention the 1 inch zoom camera's: like you I am addicted to trying camera's and I have a Nikon P610 (after ...
  • Very well done! Very good lighting and overall tonality! Bas
  • Very nice Yannis! You start to wonder if MFT has any plus value over the 1 inch sensors, especially if you only use it with the kittens! You live in such a beautiful country and all the greek ...
  • Hi Tedoph, Thanks for the repetition of what others have said much earlier. I see you comment a lot in this forum (like in the fora you were banned), but I see very few contributions (if any) of ...
  • Created discussion thread C&C Portrait
    Hi Forum, A portrait for C&C and a question: what is your general opinion on scalp-jobs in portraits? Normally I am not afraid of scalping, to place the eyes better in the frame. But some people ...
  • Hi Lena, I planned to use the EM10 for 90% but I ended up 50/50. To be honest the S90, at least my copy, falls a bit short in resolution, but it's of course small and easy to bring along and snap ...
  • Hi Geoffrey, Not at all, I am a sand hater! But these ultra-clean snow-white pebbles in the blue sea, that's something else! Much better for snorkling too, the water is so incredibly clear. Kind ...
  • Created discussion thread Some holiday snaps from Corfu
    This is S90, a little brighter/fresher than EM10 sometimes S90 S90 EM10 with Oly 14-42II kittens Rest is mostly EM10 plus kittens The daily Backgammon competition (deadly serious!) Corfy has ...
  • Replied in day after day
    Day after day the sky turns grey like skin of a dying man
  • Replied in S80 vs S90..?
    I had both. The S80 had no IS of course. But it's jpegs and colors are SOOO good. Better than S90, MUCH better. At least in good light. In suboptimal light the S90 is better with better noise ...
  • I never loved the S90, colors are often a bit weird, with too light greens. And on a big screen, like my 27 inch iMac, the images look not so sharp. For example the Nikon P510 and P610 with much ...
  • Nikon have proven they can make good ultrazooms that can get decent IQ out of a very small sensor, With the DL's two weak points are solved: the tiny sensor size and the slow AF. The pricepoint is ...
  • Replied in Stunning shots!
    No idea how, but what an incredible shots! They are awesome! Hard to believe this is a humble Coolpix (even A). But wait, I am starting to maybe get it: were these drone pictures? Bas
  • The purpose of D-Lighting is dynamic range expansion. The image will be underexposed a bit to save the highlights, and a different tonecurve is applied to lift the shadows. This results in better ...
  • I found these P610 and P900 are in a different league. With the TZ it was not possible to take sharp pictures at full zoom. I mean even at normal viewing size they were not sharp. Even small ...
  • Created discussion thread P610 D-Lighting on or off?
    I know there are some P610 shooters in this forum. I had D-lighting turned on and set exposure com to -1/3 to -2/3 just like my P510. But then pictures look washed out (although dynamic range ...
  • I like the first one best. Sharpness doesn't seem great, but dynamic range very good. Bas
  • My favs are 1 and 4, very interesting pics, to say that they are nice wouldn't be enough: they are great. Bas
  • They changed the greens and sometimes it works but often I have the felling it's a bit weird/unnatural. Had that feeling with the EPL5 and now with the E-M10 too. I guess that's Olympus: sometimes ...
  • Very good pictures, you make me want to have this camera. In fact I'm trying to get it for a while now, second hand, but supply is very limited. Bas Hamstra
