  • I agree with the other posters about the original article stating the GM designation will go away but there is still room in the new naming convention for a GM style camera. But I would not be very ...
  • What exactly did Hillary say?  Clintons have a tendency to parse words so what they say can be very different than what they will later say they meant. In particular, the last time I saw headlines ...
  • Nothing from Leica has a 3 digit price tag and I don't think Canon makes spotting scopes. I have an older 60mm Redfield spotting scope that I paid $200-$300 for 35 years ago that is fine for its ...
  • But it's still funny.
  • I was excited about this lens when it was announced but my enthusiasm cooled after I saw the test with poor results for resolution.  But looking at these test shots the lens will definitely be ...
  • The latest version of app mentioned an improved connection process and not only does it seem to be more reliable now it will also automatically reconnects if you get too far away. When I first got ...
  • If you are considering m43 for the crop factor be sure to factor in the higher MP count of the SLR you are looking at.  If you crop a 16 MP image from the 24MP sensor on the SLR the crop factor is ...
  • The camera on my Samsung S7 is 26mm which is too wide for me.  While I would greatly prefer something longer I do not want a thick phone.  Phones have wide angle lenses because that is all they ...
  • Did you pay sales tax on the L lens? If you bought the lens from a company like B&H you are supposed to pay use tax to the state.  This is rarely enforced with the exception of people that deduct ...
  • I have read it is best to send cameras with 5 axis IBIS back to the factory when the sensor needs cleaning.  The most common explanation is that because the sensor is so free to move around it is ...
  • The GX7 chose 3200 because it could not go any higher.  Auto ISO tries to keep the shutter speed fast enough to avoid motion blur.  If it knows the focal length the minimum shutter speed will be ...
  • Nobody said there are not problems with legal pot. I am not saying that we should ignore the risks, I am saying we should accept the risks. Accepting risks is part of the price we pay for living ...
  • Replied in what?
    Not any more.  I used to do the same but now I just say SLR.  Most people will assume it is digital and most of the time they will be correct.
  • If that was true we would bring back prohibition and put governors in cars that limited the top speed to 35 mph.   That combination would drastically slash fatalities.   We don't do that because ...
  • Before anyone panics more information is needed. 1 - Did the number of people dying on the roads go up by 8%?  If this was the case the headline would have said that.  If not the risks are being ...
  • Call them what you want.  I started referring to DSLRs as SLRs years ago and nobody has ever been confused by what I meant.  DSLR was useful when most SLRs still used film but now that most of ...
  • I didn't think there was such a thing as a bear proof feeder but you proved me wrong!  I am guessing 10 feet of 6x6 and 8 inch drain pipe must weigh about500 pounds.  Did you hire someone with a ...
  • Thanks andreame.  As much as I want the 100-400 there is a lot to be said for getting close, good light and a solid tripod.  The getting close part is easier said that done without a feeder though. ...
  • I live in Duluth but my friend is north of Jasper.  Still suburban but with very large lots with few fences and a lot of open land nearby.  Bears there are unusual but not worthy of a news ...
  • The forest service has start requiring bear canisters on high traffic sections of the Appalachian Trail here.  A couple of years ago a bear figured out that if you smell food nearby and chew ...
