  • Thanks for taking the time to do the shots and post. Unfortunately, this and other flagships are still quite plastic looking for my taste
  • Stringpod. Portable wrap around tripod. Lean on a tree or wall or post, steady yourself and breathe and then pause. Take shot. Use ibis if on camera  or ois on Lens Use anti shock, e shutter, timer ...
  • Shot my dslrs in -30c range. Batteries exhaust quickly so best put them close to body to keep warm until use. Buttons and dials were functional. You need to be mindful of condensation coming in. ...
  • I find a slightly higher incidence of behaviour just off the norm when dealing with people of higher education. My prof would shuffle the halls in his sandals even in winter. Later, a PhD would ...
  • 100 Canadian would be really tight to work with. The local store had used Panasonic GF-2, G3 a year or two ago for 40-50 bucks after 15 percent sale. Classifieds, sometimes there would be Olympus ...
  • I think the source image has a bit of a strange texture to the fur to begin with. Topaz seems to magnify those oddities while coming off a bit plastic elsewhere. I think I would have liked to see ...
  • Replied in 90D
    Looks like BH has a 90D body only but says Bh warranty only.  Not sure what that means. Adorama has some as does Canon USA
  • Not yet. Each trip I take less however. 10 years ago was full frame dslr, last big pre pandemic trip, cell phone, g5x 1" sensor compact, m43 with 100-400, a low light medium normal. Could see ...
  • I've had cameras that can shoot 3 to 10fps (and more actually). I've found 6fps is doable but 8-10 is a sweet spot for me. At those speeds you have a pretty good chance of getting a sequence to ...
  • Gave wife an iPhone 13pro. Seen all thr iPhone from kids daycare they shoot in portrait mode. Some look quite good, and some look strange. Odd transitions at hair and failures to isolate.  It is ...
  • I had a voightlander 25mm F0.95 for my m43 gear about 10 years back. I was a long lens, solid feeling, smooth to operate, manual focus. It was usable wide open to me but not super sharp. What did ...
  • What does your partner want? Able to zoom in close from a far off subject? Low light capability? Excellent image quality? I gave a G5x mkI to my parents. It has sat largely unused. I gave a 30D to ...
  • I think if I had never shot events, I probably would have stayed with a single ILC. Once events started, I wanted the backup and cut down on lens swaps so it went to 2, then 3 at one point along ...
  • Oh I wish! I've never had that much of a photo outing and the 5D got rained on photographing a parade and follow on festivities around town.
  • I have the MMF2, MMF3 but they were used, more like 60-70 USD. Sometimes people include them with 4/3 lenses. There was a Panasonic one as well which I assume works just as well and was ...
  • I had a Canon 5D1 perform fine in the rain for several hours but went dead after. I let it be for a few weeks considering a repair and it came back alive once dried out. All others I've kept ...
  • I've had a G5x mkI for several years. Here is a post on my thoughts from 2018 but still represents what I think of it. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61736615 1" cameras, you get compact size ...
  • Your situation may be different. Personally, I rarely use my ILC or even 1" compact and just shoot on the phone day to day. I'm still not ready to give up those dedicated cameras however. The ...
  • I usually take the Ikea, Lego, camera, puzzle, or whatever the challenge is out of the box and start laying it out, fiddling with it. If it is similar to something I've used before, like another ...
  • I've put some SD cards through the wash and dryer and they still work. I don't use them for critical events anymore but they seem fine.
