  • There are many good suggestions here.   I think I will go through and create a summary for us to reference later. Thanks to all of you (even those who can't count to two ;-)), who have contributed!
  • Can't argue the eye and finger are integral to picture taking, you've got me there!
  • Most of us like new gear, that's a pretty safe assumption, right?   I look at new gear everyday and read post after post comparing one camera or technology to another. The unending question is what ...
  • Replied in Bronze mine too!
    The way  the camera  is used really does seem to bring the end user to different experiences and results. My EM-5 II has been a wonderful upgrade to the E-M5.  I've been using it since it came out ...
  • I process my RAW files, I don’t use the camera’s processing. I don’t attempt to recreate the scene as I recall it, I’m sure I could get closer to it if I wanted. I certainly do “augment” the scene ...
  • Mike, I use highlight blinkies to indicate the blown highlights (which aren't exact because they're based on JPEGs) then use Rawdigger to understand the exposure difference between what was ...
  • Mike, There are important distinctions between exposing for film vs a digital sensor. While your experience and understanding of exposure will allow you to get acceptable photos for your purposes, ...
  • Replied in Most will agree
    its a favorite, certainly  my favorite and most used lens of the 7 lenses I own.  Great sharpness and utility.  Enjoy!
  • What is right is based on your intention.   If the photos represent your expression of what you saw and you like them, you're done. If you mean to represent how the scene actually appeared I'm ...
  • I love the visual feedback idea!   I might actually use mine if it were modified this way. Thanks for the great idea!
  • Replied in Deactivated!
    I love the idea of the clutch but it has flipped several times by accident and I shot OOF without realizing it in a couple of instances. It meant that I missed a unique shot. So, yeah, I disabled mine.
  • I rarely change the mode dial.  I use two settings -  both presets.  One for Landscape photography and one for people that may include indoor shots. I always lock it to prevent the camera from ...
  • Replied in Rarely an issue
    I wear glasses always but very rarely have issues that you suggest.  If I’m shooting in a lot of light, which I try to avoid, I will remove my glasses to see the composition clearly.
  • Since I don't use .JPGs for this type of work I can approach this as though I would with a RAW file when seeing it for the first time. The shadows are too deep here and appear to have no gradation ...
  • You're right about the amount of time to change lenses.  I would say you need a telephoto too for outdoor but the 12-40 or 12-35 Panasonic is important for indoor shooting.   You really need at ...
