  • No, I am well aware of how it works as I have a GX8 myself. You are right in that the camera automatically takes exposures as you sweep through the scene. However, if you sweep too rapidly then ...
  • I have not experienced anything like your example with the panoramic mode. Try to make sure that there is a large enough overlap between the individual exposures as you pan so that the software ...
  • "Recycleman"
  • Yes, they are "stock" photographs, which was exactly my intent. I did not feel the need to infuse any other interpretation on them which would distract from the historical horror they represent. ...
  • What is most remarkable about the site is that it is really not much more than a shell of mostly empty buildings. Yes there are exhibits of confiscated personal belongings of shoes and eye ...
  • My mother was an Auschwitz survivor. Arrived in the summer of 1944 from Hungary with my grandparents. She was selected by Dr. Mengele himself for the labour camps while her parents went directly ...
  • Thank you, The subject really needed a B&W interpretation as only monochrome can capture the emptiness and despair of that horror.
  • Created discussion thread Auschwitz - Birkenau

  • Replied in small? =not
    Yes, I agree that as the system matures one has more choices. But if you look at the progression of camera size from the GH1 to the G9, it has gotten progressively bigger. Right now the FF S ...
  • Replied in small? =not
    Ok, chill out, man! Have I offended you in some way to deserve your patronizing tone? Obviously you are not reading my text. Originally MFT: small, slow and compact but good selling point. Now: ...
  • Replied in small? =not
    No, I was referring to the original selling point for MFT; small cameras and small lenses. Of course, the initial introduction was with small BUT slow lenses. As people's desires for faster ...
  • Replied in small? =not
    Yeah, we can say goodby to the myth of the size and weight advantage of MFT. Compared to the FF lenses announced for the new S series, it is smaller, but the overall package of camera and lens no ...
  • Not exactly the "major" firmware update that was rumored to be announced.
  • However, if one shoots RAW and then corrects the images in Luminar, Lightroom or Photoshop any individual lens rendering will probably be negated by the the processing. White balance, color, ...
  • Actually that makes sense. If you look at your two pictures, the framing is different. You moved the second shot upwards during the exposure and that accounts for the upward distortion.
  • I am afraid I disagree. The image quality between the Gx8 and Gx9 are virtually identical but the EVF, weather sealing, and ergonomics of the GX8 are far superior. Trading a Gx8 for a Gx9 is a ...
  • It is possible that I don't have a very discerning eye but the "real world" pictures I took side by side, at the same time with the Q and the GX8 were not too dissimilar from each other at ...
  • I concur. I have the GX8 with the 15mm f1.7, which I have used quite extensively. I had the opportunity to purchase a Q (cost, not withstanding) and was given the opportunity to use alongside my ...
