Gerry Siegel's recent activity

  • What to do.  What most customers do I can only say.  Report it which you did.   And let Amazon correct the problem to your satisfaction.  Clearly the packaging was not intended as lens packaging ...
  • It fills column space. I do not see any noted professional eg National Geographic photographer teaching us about this. I do not see it featured in the lens array video of B and H nor Adorama. So I ...
  • Some things that are glaringly apparent.  LIke a clear sharp viewfinder that one can actually see out of.  Good color, and good magnification.. Happily such attributes form the basis for ...
  • Replied in E-M1II vs G9
    Ship jumpers need small incentive to jump ship.  The G 9 sounds great.  If the size and grip are appealing, and the reviews of the production shipment in January show no fatal flaws, I am sure ...
  • I do not subscribe to the sample variation view that one mentions.  Manufacturing and quality  control .  I mean these suckers go throough a final bench test for certain specifications before ...
  • Interesting , the martial language that is. Siege . Pulling the trigge r on a purchase is another. Let us renounce the siege mentality and de militarize. Non proliferation is even better.... It is ...
  • Forgot to say, leave the LSD to the students of Timothy Leary. Liquid Crystal is the present technology. But future may hold something else. Not LSD dear friends. I keep seeing Dennis Hopper with ...
  • I have to confess I do not understand your displacement argument for a tilt only screen.  I think we adjust our perceptual visual cortex sufficiently.  As we did when we shot with ranefinders or ...
  • I have a worry mantra that I try to practice. It applies to any piece of mechanical equipment. If you can do something about the concern then do it ( like insure, get a duplicate, or have a ...
  • Top LSD? Probably, but all of this still in the rumor stage. If it comes with LSD that cannot hurt my imaginative explorations with camera.  i will switch to absract  Dali esque stuff and just fly ...
  • Exactly. When did this subject vis a vis background placement get so lost or muddled in serious discussion by serious shooters of all formats and all lenses. Shoot with wide angles, shoot with 300 ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    It is a given that all new models will have some perceived problems.  As long as the lugs do not fall off and the screens do not burn out in daily use I am  still a happy camper.  I really like my ...
  • It looks like you could nab a spare for somewhere between 300 and 500 dollars in nice used condition with some warranty from respeted on line retailers who do take in gear after looking it over. ...
  • That lens was a good lens at the time and still is a very fine four thirds lens.  Right now there are only two cameras I know of where one can use its full functionality.   Since all optics that ...
  • Replied in Pyjama Party
    It clearly is a silly lament. But it offers some random bits and pieces on -optical design- marketing plans for the micro four thirds array ( always room for something else I perceive, if you are ...
  • I sometimes want shallow depth of field and I can get it in m4/3 and it is not a Herculean task. I have several lenses that are 1.7 and 1.8 and I rarely use tham full open. I do not shoot in such ...
  • faster recycling time........Gee whiz I thought that 1 second recycle was pretty fast.  Not stroboscopic, but then are we doing video work.   Machine Gun Kelly?   There is always a technological ...
  • I am using the FL 50 with a Quantum Turbo 3. A very solid unit. You do have to limit the number of hot flashes of course since all these consumer units have this limitation. I you want to spend ...
  • When I was young or close to young, even a teen, photo was a low budget entrance fee.  Somehow, there is a sense that it takes  photoshop,  a high storage computer and a kit of lenses of all ...
  • We can call a dredged thread a vintage thread.  How about a retrospective thread.  A throwback thread....anyway, yes a long or sort of long zoom lens with an achromat filter style plus lens ( like ...
