  • As a current Panasonic user and an ex Samsung user I'm beginning to wonder whether I should give up on photography and take up something more popular, tennis perhaps... Difficult to know for sure ...
  • I'm with him - we can't guarantee it, but in 20 years? I'd put a few hundred dollars down, definitely. :-) I did a study a couple of years ago, this is DxO data. This is the average of all models ...
  • Definitely check the weather... it's been really bad (for photography) lately - low cloud / haze, generally low visibility. If you do go up to the peak and the viewing platform isn't open, you can ...
  • Replied in Well put.
    generally agree with what you say below, but.... ... this isn't true at all! One reason I use flickr is that it has easy integration to lightroom, process a picture, add it to a publish collection, ...
  • @Zdman & Entoman, good points, but asking your current customers is also a great way of getting "more of the same" responses - people who bought your existing products are probably broadly happy...

  • Some good points above, and I may be being a little harsh, certainly I'm not sure about the CPS engagement. Also I genuinely believed they outsourced support - I may be wrong on this, or perhaps it...

  • Customer feedback my a***. How exactly do.they engage with their customers? Is there even an official web forum or email address for general feedback? I would like to buy a Canon mirrorless if it...

  • Thank you - it also shows I tend to get a little carried away with this kind of thing :-) That's basically it - an investment of money in to get photos out. This doesn't work for everyone (there ...
  • So, I asked myself the same question a while back. I make no money from photography, so the only "payback" is in the form of photos. A few months back when the Hasselblad X1D was announced, I asked ...
  • To me it's actually very similar to luggage - I have a samsonite suitcase that's lasted more than 10 years, and a fake "semsonite" suitcase from cambodian market that's lasted.... 7 years so far, ...
  • Replied in No so much
    ... another one is Open GPS Tracker on Android. No desktop application, just records a GPX file that I later import into Lightroom. I like it because it's free, doesn't have ads, and doesn't ...
  • My hope is that this is the GM1 replacement, there'll be a GM5 replacement later....

  • I think they meant micro(SD/SDHC/SDXC)...

  • Replied in Yikes...
    I have, with lightroom. It's certainly possible, albeit not what I would consider fun... I feel your pain.  I don't farm trees, but I do keep all my photos in a single DB (around 170k) and expect ...
  • I did the same with a lens a few months back. You can try taking photos of test charts / newspapers stuck to the wall, but if you don't have a studio setup it's easy to start seeing problems that ...
  • Another vote in support of this :-) Previously, I mainly used Samsung (APS-C) cameras, and when they withdrew from the market, I considered whether to swap entirely to MFT, use another APS-C brand ...
  • Personally I'd add an LCD screen protector - camera LCDs seem far more prone to pick up scratches than phones or tablets. Generally I take the camera down to a local phone shop and ask them to cut...

  • Replied in Great idea
    I just checked and that domain is already gone :D Actually, now I start to wonder whether I should start something... the thing would be ensuring that the content people contribute is always free, ...
  • OK, I don't actually own an olympus camera, so I won't comment on the specifics, but in general one thing that all the camera manufacturers could do to make the camera easier to understand is ...
  • I replied "occasionally" because this is what I do - auto ISO is set to max 1600, and if I know I'm only going to take a couple of shots I won't bother changing the ISO. This is the bit I don't ...
