BruceB609's recent activity

  • I have loaded shelves of many film ring binders but after selling my Leitz IIc enlarger for Nikon film scanners I thought it was realistic that I could browse digitals and keep it pretty well ...
  • Replied in Hardly ever...
    To really be at peace with lens selections, I put a Nikon FX, DX and Olympus MFT system together where the Olympus would mount numerous Nikon lenses including some of the best old Nikon AI or AI-S ...
  • If you like to focus on street shots, then you would be best off with a camera that lends more to the choice. A Rollei TLR went decades until digital. It never got too old. I have four E-M 10 ...
  • This is the ultimate answer because when we can't get Adobe editing to make us content, the image  color information has been compromised. __it happens!
  • Each camera brand takes their own approach to metering color and fine tuning white balance. It's rare that two different brands will match on auto but, to some extent, you can synchronize color ...
  • The older I get, the more accepting but I feel tuned into a certain wavelength that may go back several years, to a point where I could become rather fixed on a photographic period I'd like to ...
  • In a completely open contest, I'm fine with anything that looks fascinating but I'm more drawn to a more specifically defined genre of a traditional nature. Technology has taken us into ...
  • I'm sure the Olympus 45mm f1.2 is very good but really necessary?  I must be fair, I don't have one. It reminds me of the debate over Nikon's faster 85mm G lens versus the slower (and smaller) ...
  • If you're not into macro or super close ups (where the Sigma 30mm focuses down to twelve inches), the Sigma 56mm would be very satisfying. If you already know the Sigma 30mm, then you're a long ...
  • I have the Pana 42.5, Sigma 56, Oly 60 macro and Oly 75mm. This really is MFT at its best. I traded my Oly 45 for the Pana 42.5. I had moisture build up inside the Oly 45 while light rain in NYC ...
  • Replied in DSLR Market...
    I've find mirrorless on some days, DSLR on others, is more stimulating with more options and varying challenges. I wouldn't doubt that practice with one might contribute to the other. One thing ...
  • This 4:3 vs. 3:2 and both being "contained" within each other, and on and on and on... is an endless issue I think. Aspect ratio hardly makes much difference on the megapixels we have these days. I ...
  • All those years with the medium format film classics, (6x6 and 645 backs), is what drew me to MFT. 645 film is 4:3. There's so much 3:2 now that I have to wonder what logic, other than landscapes, ...
  • Get the Olympus ECG-1 grip and any lens shoots comfortably. I think it may be the best Oly grip design I've used, especially on such a compact camera. Love the way it snaps on and off for access ...
  • Replied in Olympus gear
    Disappointed with Olympus cameras selling out but this got me to buy even more into Olympus. I've got enough Oly gear now at insanely good prices, Pens, E-M1, M5, and several M10's... even new M 5 ...
  • Since the Sigma 30mm had already been introduced, and I had read excellent feedback or reviews, it quickly became my preferred MFT standard focal length. I had also got the far smaller Lumix 30mm ...
  • I've not ventured into Fuji, only because I prefer the 4:3 aspect ratio on MFT and had been building on FT and then MFT. Still, if Fuji has a "full to normal", it shows that they have given ...
  • EVF or optical, I agree that too much magnification weakens my judgement of the overall composition. If I can remember right, when I had a Canon F1-N (New), I had a detachable angle finder. Whether ...
  • I might add that these aren't edited RAW images and sharpness hasn't even been adjusted but I can say that if the images were fully edited, they'd show a lot more. No, these are pretty much JPEGs ...
  • The Sigma 56mm and 30mm are both f1.4 and magnificent for street and portraits. They deliver everything at wide open. They have certainly dampened my appetite for f1.2 Pros or even FF, especially ...
