  • Here is one example from the iphone 8.

  • After all of the hoopla last year surrounding the iphone 7 camera and the eventual disappointment, these results do not surprise me. I recently switched from the iphone to the Pixel and these ...
  • 3 days ago on the adobe forum a person posted that the LR 7 beta was out. The post was promptly removed within 30 minutes, although it was available for while through Google cache. We usually ...
  • I recently had to upgrade from LR4 to LR6 and noticed a significant slow down in the Develop module on my i7, SSD and dedicated video card system.  I would have gladly payed the upgrade feed just ...
  • Unfortunately, Lightroom would only use 1 of the 56 cores and still be slow.

  • I am thinking of getting the plate for the E-M1ii but free shipping requires $99 for Canada. I am waiting until the spring when I'll pick up another UHS-II card at the same time. I don't think ...
  • I think this info from the Toms Hardware article explains some background of the acquisition.

    "Neither Longsys nor Micron have revealed details about this acquisition, but we learned that it was...

  • Replied in Nokia 8
    Unfortunately, it looks like the monochrome sensor is only used to take B&W shots or to help blur the background. Nokia is not combing the two sensors for better IQ. I would much rather have a ...
  • Replied in Nokia 8
    It is unfortunate that they went with very tiny 1/3.06" sensors for the primary camera. A disappointing flagship from Nokia.
  • The X-Trans sensor is a big reason why I would never consider Fuji.  I use m43 for birding and am always doing heavy crops in RAW.  This is an area that the X-Trans sensor is not well designed ...
  • This Mink crossed the trail I was walking and decided to show off his catch. This is the one time I wish I had a shorter lens. Mink
  • Unfortunately, I would not be able to afford either of these lenses.  But i would love to see Olympus go in this direction as this would bode well for future camera body development.
  • Replied in Indigo Buntings
    While visiting the Hamilton Conservation Authority in Canada I saw a male Indigo Bunting high up in the trees.  While standing and watching I heard a similar bird call down lower to the ground. ...
  • When going quickly from one photo to the next you can see the pixels being formed. This is on an i7 16gb with SSD and fast graphics card. This only started happening after I upgraded to LR6 from...

  • I have the same issue with the 300mm f4.  I had this lens on my GH3.for 9 months and had significantly more accurate single box af-s. .
  • I would completely  disagree with this statement. My GH3 was significantly more accurate than my E-M1ii with single box AF-S. The actual coverage area on the E-M1ii is just way too large and ...
  • Replied in Tug of war
    This Red-eyed Vireo was playing tug of war with a caterpillar.  The Caterpillar would not let go of the leaf and eventually the Vireo gave up.  This was seen at the Hamilton Conversation Authority. ...
  • I am glad that he was upset with the larger single box AF-S.  Since he is an Olympus ambassador, it gives me hope that this will be fixed in a future firmware update.
  • Replied in M1ii comparison
    This site did a similar comparison between the E-M1 and E-M1ii. It looks like the E-M1ii does a much better job with this type of scene. http://mirrorlesscomparison.com/olympus-vs-olympus/omd-em1-v ...
  • Buffer clearing is very important.  I know with my E-M1ii I can shoot indefinitely at 9fps.  The results from the best cards on the GH5 suggests it can write indefinitely at 6fps, while the slower ...
