  • Second this. I have a 565ex and it's every bit as good as any brand name flash I've owned.
  • That's.... so weird.... did they happen to be your in-laws?  Anyone who said something  so churlish wouldn't get an invite into my home a second time, that's for damn sure. I have numerous photos ...
  • It's a combination of good (appropriately chosen) exposure and being in the right place at the right time. In the first the photographer has allowed the forest to be underexposed, to bring out the ...
  • This was a great series of cameras by Olympus - I still have a C-5060 that I still pull out on occasion. As long as I keep it at ISO 80 or 100 it produces lovely photos that easily hold their own...

  • +1

    I still have an Olympus C-5060WZ bought in 2004, it still takes great pictures even now. It cost $500 - I've taken thousands of good photos with it over 12 years, and I'll get thousands more....

  • I don't come here to pimp my photos. I like an image, I print, frame and hang it - I've got several dozen up already. I'm not here at DPR to have my ego stroked; if I need post-processing advice ...
  • Thanks for the reply. I had seen the Novoflex adapter and collar and they'd likely do the job very well - but they're a bit out of my price range; the Novoflex is $180 for the Q adapter and $125 ...
  • Yes, it was originally available with a collar (not sure whether it came with the lens or was an accessory); however, I aquired mine used some years ago and unfortunately it did not have the ...
  • Created discussion thread Telephoto tripod mount collar?
    I've got two decent old telephoto lenses, an Olympus OM 200mm f/4 and and OM 300mm f/4.5 in good condition that I'd like to use for BIF, nature and astrophotography with my E-M5 and Q7. The lens ...
  • I gave one of these to my wife and she liked it; until it was stolen from her car at any rate. It really did have good high ISO output for a compact camera.

    I know everyone is talking about the...

  • I watched for a year for the Nex 6 to drop in price after the A6000 came out, to no avail. It's just dropped to a reasonable price in the last few months. It's weird how Sony can charge MSRP for ...
  • Yeah, it's not used more than once. Once you've tapped and then, horrified, watch the camera hunt back and forth for focus while you are recording, you'll never do it again. There's a reason the ...
  • This is normal behaviour for many if not most programs these days. You could use a throw-away email from somewhere like temp-mail dot org. As long as I trust the company I'm dealing with I usually ...
  • As I said in your previous thread, it's all done with robots - no person reviewed your videos; the same technology that allows Siri, Shazam and SoundHound to recognize the song playing is used, ...
  • Exactly what I was thinking when the OP said they already had a D5200 - it's a perfectly good camera, capable and dependable; all you'll get with a brand new camera is perhaps a stop or two less ...
  • Let's see.... "Glasses" = "Glassholes"; "Spectacles" = "?". "Creeptacles"? - but not catchy enough.

    We have an opportunity here, folks! We can name a new species of thoughtless, socially...

  • I doubt 35mm film was resolving as much detail as a 24MP sensor, let alone 42 or 50 MP. And yet, there are a lot of amazing photos taken with 35mm film in the past (the best estimate I've come ...
  • And yet the E-M5 goes everywhere with me, while my d5500 sized Canon t3i stays home. I think that comparison you linked to does the arguing for me - you're comparing 3 weather resistant ...
  • My lower-budget answer to your question last year was a used Olympus E-M5 and 12-50 (24-100 equ.). Excellent quality images, weather proof even in Ireland in the spring, smaller and lighter than a ...
  • In 1987 I spent 3 months bicycling around Europe, a once in a lifetime trip, with a Minolta Hi-matic F with a 37 mm f/2.7 lens. I got all the shots I wanted to get. Go for it. I actually had a ...
