Rmark's recent activity

  • Replied in Cost of lenses
    Pretty much agree with your conclusions, but some qualities of the "PRO" lenses benefit any user. Weather sealing, more robust build, and faster maximum aperture are desirable in any lens. However ...
  • Your card will hold 2 hours of video, but you have to shoot it 30 minutes at a time.
  • Thanks for the review. Certainly convinced me that I want the lens. I have the old ZD 9-18 and rarely shoot above 9mm, and thought the Olympus 7-14 would be used the same way. A 7.5 mm rectilinear ...
  • A contract with a clause like that certainly demonstrates a lack of confidence or skill on the part of the " professional" . The term  " pro grade equipment" is pretty vague. Is a Nikon D3300 pro, ...
  • Replied in Lighting!
    Its been a lot of years since I shot a wedding, but I remember the owner of the studio repeating the mantra that " lighting is everything" You need to find out if the church will allow you to use a ...
  • Nice shots. Especially the butterfly. Curious as to what housing and port system you are using . And is the 12-40 wide enough underwater, are you using it with a dome?
  • $974 on Olympus outlet store
  • It will likely go sale again, but who knows when. I bought mine used from KEH about a 15 months after it was released and paid about $750. It was worked perfectly , is likely one of the best ...
  • People who use cell phones for photographs are not likely to be pixel peepers, and could care less about DR and bokeh. Cell phone cameras are actually   perfect for recording an image or short ...
  • Computers have become a small part of Apples business, they make much more selling phones. Desktop machines have become much less popular than laptops, so it's not surprising the upgrade cycle is...

  • I routinely carried the 50-200 plus EC14 plus adapter on my EM-1.1, since 2013.  This is carried from the camera, not the tripod collar on the lens. I am much more worried about the lugs failing ...
  • Most cameras sold are adult toys. If all the pro photographers doubled there would not be a sufficient number to support the camera industry. Besides, cell phone cameras have actual useful real ...
  • Last October I picked up RX100ii on eBay for $220 that wasn't selling because of a badly scratched screen. The camera was otherwise in very good condition , the original owner put the camera in ...
  • Thanks for the reply. Additional lighting may be helpful, I could probably find a way to rig a Sola dive light I have to the camera. The Sony AX53 would be a nice solution, but the price is ...
  • Thanks for the reply. We thought of attaching a go pro type camera to either the operator or assistant. In preliminary trials there was too much head movement , especially by the primary dentist. ...
  • Created question thread Camera for instructional videoà
    At a Pediatric Dental residency where I teach , we are planning a to make some brief technique videos for new residents and undergrad students. The video would be close up but not macro. All would ...
  • B&H photo has a brand new FZ1000 for $697, in case you want to rethink your asking price. With no history on this site a picture of the camera and a history on eBay or some other reputable site ...
  • Not such a good choice for shooting birds
  • Where I live in the Baltimore area, there is only one full service photo store left, and they specialize in Nikon gear, with some Sony and Canon. Last time I was there they had no new mft cameras ...
  • Replied in Flash
    It is surprising that so few mentioned flash. I briefly shot weddings 40 some years ago , and studio I worked for used 2 or 3 medium format cameras, strobes with back ups, reflectors, and extra ...
