drusus' recent activity

  • GF1 with pana 20mm. Nothing else. Stopped rarely using Nikkor 50mm f2 when my declining eyesight led to too many out of focus portraits. Planning to buy Pana 12-35 F2.8 soon b/c my son reached the ...
  • (Apologies if I am duplicating an existing reply--did not have time to read them all) If your camera's JPEG engine processes noise better than you can do in post-processing, why not save both RAW ...
  • ... To each his own level of cleanliness with their cameras, and I remember the days, 30 years ago, when I took as much care of my camera and lenses as you do. I like seeing cameras that look like ...
  • Crashplan also added, relatively recently I think, the option to encrypt your entire backup. I have some work files on my laptop and my work requires all files to be encrypted, and so I signed up ...
  • Another way to look at this is that most people never cared for high-quality photos, but in the past they had no choice because the amateurs with cheap DSLRs and kit lenses had not yet come along. ...
  • Just writing to point out to the OP that the above views are not shared by all doctors, at least not by me. I agree with the above comment that you should review any changes to your treatment with ...
  • I respect your lack of interest in using your M43 camera for video, but if you are interested in making your choice more informed, I invite you to look at video shot indoors through a ...
  • You get to go on trips that are 6 or 7 weeks long and that (whether they are work trips or leisure travel) leave you enough time to take photos with various camera systems? I don't call you ...
  • Thanks! Even simpler than I had imagined. I was thinking of having to convert 20 mm and 35 mm to their respective degrees of visual angle (field of view), use a hypothetical distance, and proceed ...
  • I think I need to make my question clearer. I do realize that different focal lengths yield different compression due to changes in distance from the subject, but this assumes that the "same" ...
  • Created question thread How to convert focal length to FOV
    I have a 40 mm equivalent focal length lens (the Panasonic 20 mm f1.7). I am considering buying a zoom and would like to visualize the field of view of 70 mm EFL (35 mm on m43). I'd like to do ...
  • Thanks for the suggestion. Now searching for "Mac alternatives to Photodex"...
  • Thanks for the suggestion. I had not looked at digital frames for a while but it looks like they have improved considerably. A cost that i would consider reasonable would get me a 10-inch one. It ...
  • Created question thread Website or software for slideshow
    Does anyone know of a website or app to help me display my photos on my home computers? I currently upload my processed images to a Zenfolio account, which I like for its features in sharing photos ...
  • Thank you for pointing me to the option of using a robots.txt file. I had never heard of it before. Dress
  • I switched to a smartwatch for the first time. I previously used $20-$40 watches so i am not a connoisseur. My preferences are: - Being able to read the time without glasses at night when our ...
  • Ask the mayor of the bridge's town to inform NJ governor Chris Christie that he/she won't support him in the next election. Governor Christie will have 2 lanes on the bridge closed as political ...
  • Canonet G-III QL. 40 mm f1.7 lens. I've come full circle 40 years later with a Panasonic GF1 and 20mm (40mm equivalent) f1.7 lens--I consider this a digital Canonet. Drusus
  • You could have shown the guard that it has a hair on the EVF and thus could not possibly be a new camera...
  • Replied in Update?
    Glad to hear about the good outcome. I wonder if another way one could protect oneself from such a problem is through liability insurance. Can a photographer who gets paid for weekend gigs add an ...
