  • Anyone who wants to entrust his/her data backup to a company for "cloud" storage should throughly read their EULA. ...even though most people never bother to read 20+ pages of legalese details, ...
  • Replied in budget and bulk
    My answer was MFT... ...because if I really had to start again from scratch, I would first go for a system I find most convenient for daily/frequent use. And I like the size of MFT. Examples: EM1.1 ...
  • These days, large HDDs offer a lot of space for an affordable $/TB cost. My recommendation is to go for 2 or preferably 3+ HDDs. Their size should be at least twice or thrice the total size of the ...
  • Replied in Both
    2023 ? wow !  I really hope we can have a bit of travel in 2022, even early 2022. Hey, please do your best to stay healthy for many / several years ;) o genki de
  • and some good used camera shops... and just about anywhere can be interesting :)  ...if you like Japan
  • Replied in Ltds lenses?
    Completely agree. Now, I only own Limited lenses: DA15, 40, 70. And a few Takumar. Eventually, I might get the DA20-40 Ltd.
  • Replied in practicalities
    Many new techno gadgets are *great* -- in theory. I had a 500 GB Samsung EVO SSD (SATA) in a 4 bay OWC Thunderbolt 2 enclosure. I've used it at first with a 2011 27" iMac, with Thunderbolt. And, ...
  • It's really bad when the manufacturer stops producing/distributing batteries for an older camera. For example, It's impossible to find new batteries for the Panasonic GX1. I cannot find any from ...
  • Replied in Several
    My experience is similar. I have had more computer hardware since about 1999. So, I had more HDD failures in the last 20 years. Statistically, I had less data loss per GB or TB in the last 10 ...
  • This is a good plan. My migration of LR 6.x was from an iMac with Sierra to a MBP 2019 with Mojave. The migration of LR went smoothly. (But I did get permission/ownership problems on some folders ...
  • Indeed, buy 2 HDDs, or better 3 -- and store the 3rd copy elsewhere. Choose a HDD with 3 or 5 years warranty, it should be more reliable than one with a 1 year warranty. If you can use a Phillips ...
  • Replied in E-PL2 "wheel"
    Within 2 years, the "wheel" of our E-PL2 did not operate reliably. It was rather inefficient (and frustrating) to struggle with it to try to make adjustments. Luckily, a little bit of contact cleaner ...
  • The left one of the comparison at 100% magnification is quite bad. I will explain that shutter shock problem to my friend. He should be aware of it and check the output of his GX1+14-42 PZ kit ...
  • hmmm... a friend has a GX1 + 14-42 PZ.  I shall warn him to change the lens if he finds he takes (too many) SS fuzzy pictures. Thanks for the explanation ! Does this happen at specific focal ...
  • it's usually in my hand. Unless it is raining a lot.
  • Pentax might have an even smaller share of the market compared to Olympus, but, at least Pentax has not scattered its efforts on both high end (EM1X and most PRO lenses) and low end (selfie ...
  • GX1: I've never observed shutter shock fuzziness when I use the GX1+20/1.7 or with 14/2.5 -- (I am not denying other users might have noticed SS with some lenses). Even with the 100-300 at 300mm, ...
  • I bought it in 2012. Took 45K pictures -- much less than gazillions ;) it died suddenly and never wanted to power on ever again. All my other M4/3 cameras are fine, even the older GX1 and the GF1 ...
  • In sequence, since 2010, I had : K7, K5, K01, K5IIs (2013), then K3ii (2018). After 4 months with the K3ii, I sold it, and, kept my K5IIs. There was nothing really wrong about the K3ii. I preferred ...
