On photo Striped Snake in the Beautiful, But Poisonous! (Nature) challenge (3 comments in total)

Grat picture tong. One little weakness -- no fangs in sight. They would have made the picture stronger. Does the lack of fangs indicate that getting a bit close-up was okay? :)

On photo Tree Viper in the Beautiful, But Poisonous! (Nature) challenge (11 comments in total)

And of we are being paranoid about word usage, it is not poisonous but venomous (as Cetonid notes). Rough classification: poisonous is when you eat something and it makes you sick; venomous is when something eats you and it makes you sick! :)

BUT WOW!!! A deserving winner -- a remarkable picture.

A very fine shot, birdman. Congratulations.

Carey, I would like to congratulate you on your excellent sample pix.

Great sample shots; I don't know how you people can keep shooting in the disgusting rain and cold and rain and cold and… (wot? I'm repeating myself?). These are the sort of pix I want to see in samples, real life stuff with the sort of images we all wish we could shoot every time, where you have been smart and e.g. shot the three boats on the river which gives an indication of edge and corner sharpness without using a brick wall, and a shot involving a wire mesh fence. Good stuff.

Oh boy, the GH5 lines up right next to the E-M1 II as the premier cameras of ANY format, each leaning in a different direction but meeting in the middle with top tech and top images.

Wu Jiaqiu: the more i look the more i realise....there is no spoon

What about a bit of chocolate sauce and cream to dip into? And, yes, fingers will do but a spoon helps the chocolate sauce and cream go down in greater quantities! LOL.

On challenge Song Titles- Little Deuce Coupe (5 comments in total)

Little deuce coupe -- and at least the first two in the winning picture are convertibles, maybe all three are, not coupes. I also would have thought the BB's song was about sun and surf, not rainy weather in forests, and Fords, not Chevvies (saying nothing against Corvettes, I was a bit in favor of the first two models).

I'm with the others in disappointment about the number of Deuce Coupes -- even I know what it is, and I'm Australian where by and large we couldn't give a damn (thanks Rhett) for Deuce Coupes (and we pronounce the word "coop-eh"). :)

I reckon the guy who came last was closer to a little Deuce Coupe than the winner! (Well, he would have been if he had put a couple of chairs in the back. LOL.)

On photo Mango in the An A to Z of Subjects- Week 13, M challenge (1 comment in total)

Had to give a big vote to this one! I searched my mind for "M" subjects -- and just couldn't come up with anything. Good grief -- it is the mango season where I live and I am surrounded by about 20 different kinds of them and eating them daily. And this is exactly how I prepare them to eat. M = Mango. <Sigh>

Would my pic have beaten this one? I don't know, it's good!

But watch out for "P"! LOL.

Cheers, Geoff

On photo Race in the Your City - Kids Play challenge (4 comments in total)

Terrific picture and a very deserving winner, I think, in a pretty good field. I was participating in this challenge myself, but in honesty, had to give this picture a top vote. Congratulations mdbinasif, great capture! Lovely lighting, great angle, excellent composition, and superb action. The only negative is the headless adult walking along in the background but there are some things you simply can't do anything about, aren't there?

On photo despertando in the - A New Year, A New Day - (Full Colours Only+ A Border) challenge (1 comment in total)

I wonder why this did not do better -- I certainly would have rated it quite a lot higher. It got a huge bunch of low (negative) votes, though. Sad.

Some very nice pictures in this challenge, but I reckon this first is a clear winner. I would love to have taken this picture! :)

Apple is scrambling to respond to a ridiculous design stuff up. No dongles for me thanks -- I want a clean machine with stuff required daily built in. Like I have with my 2010 MBP which I was planning to upgrade this year. If the upgrade happens, it's going to be with a used machine.

Imagine taking an MBP into a client's office to do a presentation with a bunch of dongles hanging off it! Stupid.

MBP? Nope -- MBAmateur. And MB fluster cuck amateur at that. Great image, Apple.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 / G80 Review (692 comments in total)

One note for the reviewr regarding color, saturation, contrast, noise reduction, and whatnot of OOC JPEGS -- which is what I use all the time out of my G6 and GX7 cameras. These are easy to alter. For example, I have punched up the red a little, the saturation a bit, and the contrast, and reduced sharpening and NR, in "Standard" mode. My "Standard" pix are now a fair bit punchier although I do often sharpen them a bit, and also occasionally apply some NR, in PP.

In reply to:

Handiworks: Great review! I was about to nab one when the issue of the "sticky" panning video began tearing up the DPR MFT Forum and Facebook GX7 User's Group page.

Would love to see further review and a response from DPR (and one from Panny for that matter).

Thanks again for the review, I was hoping to already have the G85 in hand!

Looking at it, I am seeing a software problem in the implementation of the IBIS-OIS link-up. I suspect this should be relatively easy to solve with a firmware fix.

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: As a long time Olympus user, I say this. This is the beginning, finally, of Panasonic overtaking Olympus in stills and video, and probably also the beginning of Olympus' downfall.

Olympus won't fall, Sergey, have no fear. What is happening and will continue to happen is that Oly and Panny will continue driving each other on with the kind of innovation and development that is making them both leaders in the "real camera" field.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G85 / G80 Review (692 comments in total)

Excellent review of a very remarkable camera. One possible omission: the kit lens shift from 14-42 to 12-60. That is a big move too (although it should be noted that the Lumix 14-42 ii is an outstanding performer).

All in all, it seems to me that while the reviewer fairly points to large elements of shared technology and performance between the G80/85 and its predecessor and siblings, Panasonic has really brought it all together in a package offering outstanding capability at a very economical price. Some niggles, of course, but they are ever with us.

The G80/85 is a peak production.

Looking at the G80/85, the GH5 and GX9 are going to have to be absolutely mind-boggling to justify their flagship status in their respective fields.

Exciting times! :D
