  • The PL 15mm is one of the few affordable primes that is better (I heard so done quote me on that) than the 12-40mm. Certainly the Oly 12mm, 17mm (both 1.8 and 2.8), PL 25mm 1.4, panny 25mm 1.7 and ...
  • For the 7.5mm manual lens... You really don't need auto focus for the grand majority of times. Set it to focus at infinity and you will have everything in focus that is more than a meter away. So ...
  • The Zenit E and it's variants were big clunky cameras that no one loved (compared to what was out at the time). They worked... But that's about it. The Helios 44's were also convoluted and clunky ...
  • Hi, sorry for responding late but if you want GPS functionality there is another option. What I did and still do is have a separate powered GPS device specifically for this reason. I have an old ...
  • ... And my GM1. And they are used differently. GM1, with my 12-32, 20mm, 15mm, Oly 45mm, Panny 25mm 1.4 and a whole slew of other lenses take better photos compared to the RX100, no competition... ...
  • Unless I'm mistaken, Google wanted Snapseed. Nik collection was just bonus.

  • At $1200? Can't afford that kind of $$$ for a pocket camera...I think I'll stick with my RX100 II for a little while longer...

  • Replied in Manual?
    Page 78 in the manul Sorry, not trying to be a smart A$S but don't own the camera so can't really say by experience. But taking a quick look at the manual, if you have it in M mode, rotate the ...
  • Preferably an upgrade to the GX8 sporting the new sensor. Or a GX9 upgrade with new organic sensor (and new EVF). And keep it priced within the land of affordability. I.e. don't want to sell my ...
  • On your camera? Well, at least a physical One anyhow. How many phones have keyboards these days? They all have virtual software keyboards, on 3-6 inch screens. Cameras have 3 inch screens. I don't ...
  • As the EVF on the GX8 is still one of the best around.
  • Of course, it's not worth the investment. On the other hand, drone photography could open up a whole new field of photography if you are interested. If not, well, never mind then ;)
  • Replied in Drones...
    Well, not going to comment about photography in general in this response but at least for photos like the above, if you can't climb the stands, you don't have to. Just learn to use a drone to get ...
  • @dansclic Haven't heard that about the GX85. Panasonic in general but that was years ago. They have generally caught up and have pretty good skin tones these days.

  • @D_Preview Err...why not? It's not the best around but it's certainly good enough for most people.

  • It was my first lens as well but for my GF1. Generally was well behaved but in certain low light conditions, yes, it hunt...a lot. Sometimes just could not find focus. Mind you, it was rather rare ...
  • Replied in Panasonic ZS200
    If small and lightweight is of the upmost importance your choice is really limited. If you need a pant pocketable zoom than ZS200 full stop (or ZS100). If you have some small space in your camera ...
  • when Panasonic has no marketing to speak of... At least there is a chance of seeing an Olympus M43 ad here and there. Panasonic? Maybe their ZS/TZ line...but M43 ...<crickets> (I would also contest ...
  • Don't know about this brand. All I can say is that it's a dumb adapter (i.e. no electrical contacts etc.). I believe there may be some adapters that are 'more' smart. Not as good as some of the ...
  • Replied in Ricoh GR...
    with the Ricoh GR's snapshot functionality, you don't even have to worry about focusing (as you are essentially prefocusing).
