  • @slatts-from-oz: The Leofoto looks nice, but it’s too long folded for my bicycle panniers, while the Peak Design fits easily. The PD is also easy to fit into or onto many backpacks without...

  • I might have agreed with you about the center column until I bought the Peak Design. It’s actually quite stable, reversible for macro, and you can remove much of its length to get the tripod lower...

  • I have the aluminum version of the Peak Design and it’s fantastic. It’s almost as light as the CF model and packs down to a much more portable size than my full size Gitzo Carbon Fiber tripod. I...

  • The high contrast graphic composition of this photo also made it translate well to t-shirts worn by countless Clash fans throughout the years. Back in the 80's my Clash t-shirt featured the ...
  • Some years ago my then 4-year-old got tangled in my camera strap and my E-M5 hit concrete with much more force than if it had been simply dropped. At the time I had my 9-18mm lens attached. The ...
  • I had the horribly low resolution clip-on EVF for the GF1, but the one thing I loved about it was the fact that it tilted up. To get that same tilt in an EVF like the GX8 would be fantastic.
  • Excellent job capturing a once in a lifetime opportunity! I've seen so many neowise photos recently, and taken a few myself. These are truly unique and exceptional.
  • I think it depends on what your goal is for a "backup." When I used to shoot events as a side-gig, it definitely helped to have two of the same camera body (mine weren't exactly the same, but ...
  • That's actually kind of shocking. After 25 years in the IT industry I've never seen failure rates like that. Most spinning discs will outlast their desired years of services. I've worked in a ...
  • I've been in the IT industry since the mid-1990's, so I've replaced a lot of hard drives over the years. I've only had a few go bad on me personally that I can recall, and yes I had a backup. I've ...
  • One of your lenses is already a Panasonic, so no issues there :-) The Samyang will also work just fine with any m4/3 camera which is to say it's still manual focus :D (I have, and love, the Rokinon ...
  • Panasonic and Olympus both make some excellent lenses, and you can use Panny lenses on Oly bodies and vice versa. There are a few Olympus lenses with features designed to work with Olympus cameras ...
  • Replied in Very ...
    You never shoot portraits, or other types of shots in portrait orientation with your m4/3 camera? I transitioned to m4/3 from years of shooting Nikon APS-C DSLRs. I was used to 3:2 because that was ...
  • Replied in From DPR
    That was my first thought... that these lenses will probably be only slightly better than a mirror lens... and maybe not even better at all. The m4/3 pro super telephotos offer excellent optical ...
  • I guess you could say that I started to transition from my DSLR kit to m4/3 in 2010 because I felt like sensor tech had started to run into the law of diminishing returns. I cared more about ...
  • The problem is that jhunna did not say what aspects of the image quality he finds lacking. Does he want more resolution? More dynamic range? Less noise at high ISO? I'm not sure a new sensor will ...
  • I shot with my E-M5 from 2012 until I bought an E-M1 Mark II about a year ago. I still shoot with my E-M5 as a second camera. I couldn't sell it because the LCD display got cracked and stopped ...
  • While I have certainly appreciated IBIS in shots where it makes a difference, it was actually pretty low on my list of requirements when I bought my E-M5 and later my E-M1 Mark II. As more camera ...
  • "Excessive" isn't the word I would use. I might go with calling amateur camera gear a luxury, but even that make some assumptions. Some would say a car is a luxury while others would say it is a ...
  • I was very active on Nikon forums from 2004 to 2012 or so. I remember plenty of volatile posts and people debating the merits of different models, complaining about what Nikon chose to exclude in ...
