  • I use this lens at conferences, meetings and other events at indoor venues.  It really shines because it is a bright lens with excellent quality.  This means it's not a problem to crop images for ...
  • This could be attempted but the maximum value for individuals to import goods without tax is NZ$400.  Doesn't allow for very expensive purchases!  Many do get away with more but if you are caught ...
  • Perth actually. And Harvey Norman who have a chain here.  If I have a problem they might actually treat me nice? !
  • I believe I have complied with the requirements.  A little loophole maybe but seems to be nothing to preclude me?  I could have waited till I got there but this particular sale had a deadline I ...
  • Yep, already bought online and delivered to my daughter ;-) ;-) waiting for me to open on arrival!  Exchange rate is sweet right now too.  Will try the TRS thing on the way out - because no matter ...
  • Actually I'm looking forward to picking up my new G7 when visiting Oz next month.  It's quite a bit cheaper than I can buy in NZ and comes with the bonus 25mm lens which is not on offer here at ...
  • The GX1 is 16mp. When it is good it is very very good - when it is bad,  it's horrid. (like the fairy tale! ) Depends on the lens you have on and the conditions. April 2015 I went on a trip to ...
  • Is the GM5 still freely available? I checked a couple of larger online outlets in NZ and GM range not mentioned.  It seems all about the GF7 now - as if that is the replacement?
  • Timely question! :)  On the odd occasion that I have tried to set one in the past I have immediately forgotten what I set!  So never use them. But once a month I shoot photos for a monthly group ...
  • Having had both versions of this lens I honestly cannot see any difference except probably at the very long end.  Like all lenses there are probably sample variations but I think you will be ...
  • Yep! That looks pretty good! :)
  • Heck! ~ Flashes, reflectors, umbrellas, back-drops, assistants??  What a way to intimidate people!  This is just for a photo-board isn't it?  Hasn't anyone suggested turning this into a fun ...
  • A couple of weeks back I was asked to record some of the daytime proceedings during a conference I attended (a professional took the shots at the awards dinner). I was confronted with a pea-soup ...
  • I've taken to producing photo books after special trips.  I've used Vistaprint for the last several I have done and been extremely pleased with them.  They are printed in Oz and delivered to NZ. ...
  • You nailed it!  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Two years ago I sold my GH2 and purchased a GH3.  I was never happy with the ergonomics of the GH2 and LOVE the GH3 handling.  "They" said ...
  • I purchased the little Panasonic 12-32 and 35-100 to travel light with my GX1.  On 2 trips where I flew with carry-on luggage only, I took the combo - and the longer zoom never got used either ...
  • Are you travelling on your own or with a buddy who also enjoys photography?  If you have all the time and opportunity to get "the shot" by all means take the best gear you can.  However, if part ...
  • Oh dear Geoff, you've taken us off on a tangent! ;-) In 2012 we went on a boat trip in Fiordland for 7 nights on the Milford Wanderer with about 30 passengers and 6 crew.  Fiordland is remote and ...
  • Awesome detail in those shots Trevor.  No diopter attachments I assume? I've been eyeing up the Oly 60 macro - but now I think I want what you've got....! :-D
  • Thanks ernstbk.  I had read of this problem and did check for any signs of looseness but it all seems pretty tight to me.  However, I guess only a technician is going to tell me for sure - at a price!
