  • You'll have to do a bit of legwork and find one with the other features you like.
  • I've tried Olympus (very good), Nikon (OK), Canon (OK). Pentax is my favorite.
  • Replied in Great shot! (nt)
  • I do the half press thing too; been doing it for a long time. ...but it's not the same as pre-focusing with MY brain, so that I can just lift the camera and quickly get the shot. (using hyperfocal ...
  • AF film cameras did that before digital too, but it's not the same, in either case. This sounds awesome. I may go back to iPhone when my trusty LG dies... My girlfriend's dad just got one of the ...
  • (1) Offer firmware to E-PL9 owners to make it an E-PL10 (2) Drop the E-M1X (3) Make an XZ-3 (4) Get back into film cameras by ...
  • With the AF cameras that wait to trip the shutter until focus is achieved, there is some lag. (digital or film) With phones, there is often a HUGE lag, especially as the phone ages and gets filled up.
  • ...when I had my humble D610 and the 50/1.8G, I did some indoor shots with flash at high ISO, and the noise was so low it was almost a religious experience. It does have its place.
  • Exactly. That person might be working hard at a high-paying job, so that s/he doesn't have much time left for hobbies. I know my ex-wife is one of those people. (and she looks down at my ...
  • Actually, he ASKED if it was jealousy and people are coming unhinged, misquoting, etc. Posting stuff like: "I don't give a damn what you think."  Wow. That escalated quickly.
  • The free image hosting here is not really intended to be what you're wanting it to be. It's there so we can use it to host some images, maybe in support of discussion or to show some of our work. ...
  • It was un-civil and flaming him. This is a bit more civil, but it is still flaming him and also off-topic. As such, I'll delete it after a few hours. Look at the original post, and also notice my ...
  • > I think you're doing fine with your culling. Very nice work. I just Followed you.
  • Replied in Bright Sides:
    (as others have pointed out) Olympus gear might be available at deep discounts in the near future. Also: Olympus gear MAY become collectible. There are some cameras, even digital ones, that have ...
  • I really like this Initial Review concept. DPR gets something of substance published quickly, but without trying to do EVERYTHING and have it end up sloppy.

  • > when I get the guts. I'll bring my E-M10.3 + 17/1.8 only . Maybe I'll even break down and try the body cap normal lens?
  • Have you ever considered FF with 70-200/4 + Ricoh GR as a semi-lightweight kit? I think a lot of people do the 8-12 hour thing at first, and then graduate to a lighter kit as they get more experienced
  • Back in the 90s, I used to carry my whole collection all the time. It usually consisted of something like this: (1) 35 mm SLR with a slow 28-85 (2) Slow 70-210 (3) B ...
  • Oh, this was not nice either. This was one that resulted in a whole sub-thread being deleted: Flaming. Pretty mean. You got emotionally invested and cut loose. ;-)
  • This bit was borderline flame-ish: "Anybody who is ok with shots like below have me questioning if Apple paid them..." Although I agree with your assessment, remember that we all start somewhere. ...
