  • I loved my GX85 for 5 years and around 2021 I thought I'd upgrade and I bought a GX9.  I couldn't bring myself to sell the GX85 so I sent it off to have it modified for infrared photography, ...
  • So I read between the lines there and figured out what you were alluding to, then I checked and I get it - the cap is removable!  You changed my life!  Thank you!
  • I use a lens cap.   Every lens comes with one and nothing works better.
  • Replied in Panasonic GX9
    It's my new camera.  I had to look it up - I was surprised to see it's over 5 years old.  It's still new to me.
  • I'm confused.  Are you saying you can't use the review feature right after recording an image?  It looks like there's a review button on the back, like on all digital cameras.
  • I use my phone to grab a shot of my wife's grocery list. I can go off in my direction with no writing or communication. Really convenient.  I use the phone to take a pic of the electrical panel so ...

  • Replied in Arizona trip
    It's like most locations, the places you want to see first are the Nat'l parks & monuments, etc. Living in AZ, I find I can fly nearly everywhere I go - but I've done the stuff tourists hit ...
  • Make a compelling image (great subject, perspective and lighting) and it will stand up even with compression & other web compromises. If someone wants to look at pixel level, they're not ...
  • If you take photography seriously you just can't be happy with a phone.  Ergonomics are..... well, they just don't exist on a phone.  Like a cross country road trip in a Smart Car - it'll get you ...
  • Absolutely. A jpg from the camera just can't compete with what you can do with a raw image.
  • I have the VI and yep, the startup time is a frustration.  The other noticeable flaw is the battery life.  I also have a Canon S-120.  I often take it with me because it doesn't have these issues.
  • Replied in Muscle memory
    Think about the first time you drove a stick shift. What a mess.  A year later and your left foot is moving toward the clutch because the muscles in your right foot are moving toward the brake. ...
  • I zoomed in on that map area, the gigafactory is shown. It's within an Enhanced Warning Zone, related to Austin Int'l Airport, it doesn't appear to have anything to do with the factory. You can ...
  • Check out this map page. It's available for most countries. It will show you areas where you cannot fly a drone. Anywhere else, you should be good to go. You can submit an unlock request for ...
  • Replied in Yes
    If you like the image, go to 1:1 and you can determine where it can be used.
  • Replied in Cults
    I have some experience with a cult.  Those who don't have such first-hand experience tend to misuse the word. That said, your points about fanatics are spot on.
  • P&S cameras were purchased by 2 groups - 1. People who are serious about photography and want something for situations when discretion is needed or see no need to carry something larger &  heavier. ...
