Joe Sesto's recent activity

  • It is slightly reminiscent of Wynn Bullock's experiments many decades ago with bunches of crumpled colored cellophane....on a stack of separated glass sheets in a frame he made. It was just a box...

  • I started with the G1, but really didn't like it. When Canon offered the black G-2 I gave the G1 away....but soon the Pro1 replaced the G2. Both are still in use in my office almost daily. Moved...

  • Replied in Olympus C-8080
    IIRC there were at least 5 brands that had the Sony 2/3 sensor, possibly more, Sony, Minolta, Olympus, possibly Nikon or Pentax and the Canon Pro 1, which had the only Red line lens I know of that ...

  • I don't think some of the new posters get the concept...what would new owners get to complement the new camera...obviously it comes with a manual...and a 35/1.4 is a great lens, but for a starter?

  • @HRC2016, I'm a firm believer of backup batteries, especially for newbees. They are likely to do more chimping and to take more backup shots at various FLs than more experienced users here. It's...
