Diane B's recent activity

  • Interesting the premise that the GX85 is successor to GM1/5.   I have a GM1 and recently added a GX85 (also have EM5) and I don't really find the kinship between the GM and the GX85.  LIke the ...
  • Replied in Yes...
    Yes, which is the reason I bought the GX85  i have an EM5 and have had a number of other m4/3 DSLR bodies and wanted the non SLR body form.  I did know about the EVF but found it was okay, not ...
  • I am not particularly biased toward Panasonic or Olympus as I was with Canon.  I can be  persuaded by a variety of things to move toward either mfg.  I love(d) my EM5 but wanted to move up a bit ...
  • Not mine either,  I was Canon from the original D30 up through the FF 5D and never owned a Nikon lens until I moved into the m4/3 world.  I like our forum as is--right now I shoot with an EM5 and ...
  • Thanks.  I knew the two words but didn't know the somewhat different usages or how to pronounce whinge.
  • I have both the EM5 and the GX85 but I shoot in RAW not jpeg so I  can't really comment on that BUT the move from the GF1 to the EM5 would have been quite an improvement in IQ I think.  The GF1 ...
  • Created discussion thread Oly EM-1 and EM-10 in Italy for NYIP
    Nice article on EM-1 and EM-10 with 12-40 lens about shooting in Italy for NY Institute of Photography https://www.nyip.edu/photo-articles/archive/shooting-mirrorless-in-italy?utm_source=iContact&u ...
  • i haven't worn a watch for years, used my Iphone, but now wear my Watch daily because it is so useful for me for a number of reasons.  I generally use the modular face but have 3 other ...
  • I think Jeff Harris's comment "It's all a balancing act. Pick 5 features you really want, settle for 3. EVERY camera is the same." is probably the best advice from this thread. I recently added a ...
  • Thanks.  Guess one assumes because its a relatively inexpensive kit  lens, the 12-32 would be so so-relative to the 14-140--but the latter is a super zoom....
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic 14-140 image quality compared
    to the little kit 12-32 and 35-100.   I was contemplating the 12-35/2.8 since with  my Canon FF it was the zoom (24-70/2.8) I used most but wonder if another combo would work as well--esp. in ...
  • First  question--when you say auto I am assuming you are choosing auto for ISO--have you set a limit for ISO in settings?  I set my limit at 6400 because if I use a higher iso I want to control ...
  • I'll be followiing this thread because I have looked at the 12-35 off and on for several years. I tend to use fast primes (15/1.7, 25/1.4, 45/1.8, 60/2.8--20/1.7 originally) but found myself this ...
  • I discovered by going to the WD forums that some SD cards do not work with it (primarily older SDs). When I used the SD cards that work with it it handled them just fine. I also learned prior to...

  • Replied in Correction
    I expect Bob is right on the money.  I had several early Panasonics with articulating screens, the EM5 with tilt and now a GX85 with tilt.  I didn't choose or not choose any of them because of the ...
  • I have used Noteability for a number of years.  I used to use an Adonit stylus with it but its terrific with the new Pencil on an Ipad Pro.  You can use text, hand writing, photos,  (combine-cut ...
  • Replied in 15, 25, 45
    I have long considered the 12-35/2.8, even the 12-40/2.8  and carried the older Oly 12-50/3.5-5.6 (sort of similar weight/length) last weekend.  That decided me--I was a very long time Canon ...
  • Andrew, just wanted you to know this is exactly what I wanted/needed.  I had some initial difficulty--not having good luck with the SD slot.  I went to the WD My Passport forum and was sent to a ...
  • Thank you, ordered today from B&H with 32G SD in bundle.  I downloaded the manual and read it, found some other good current info and decided it would work for me.
  • Thanks Andrew--that's really helpful.  I was replying to above from notification and hadn't read yours.  That solves the problem.
