  • 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 ...
  • It's definitely relevant, but I don't feel it's a high risk. As the OP says, this is a specific lens he's looking for, one that is relatively expensive and in much less demand than the 50 1.8 that ...
  • I did. I don't honestly think that's a huge issue in this particular case.... yes, there are some fakes, but with lenses it's a lot harder to get fooled than with say, filters. Particularly if the ...
  • One final note to the OP here - if you are really really really determined to go down this route to try find a bargain, find a vendor on price.com.hk that has a whatsapp contact number listed and ...
  • Other posters have posted some of the things that might happen (most of them are absolute worst case scenarios), but to me it honestly depends on how much fuss you want to go through and time ...
  • A good store is Tin Cheung Camera 天祥攝影器材 - google it and you can see the locations on google maps - the branch in Kowloon is the biggest, I think. It's probably not the cheapest you can find, but ...
  • Actually I think it might have to do with rights - I asked a question on the flickr group and didn't get a response - by submitting a photo, you grant flickr rights over the photo - what happens in...

  • Thanks!! I used to think that, but now I'm not so sure.... I find the NX30 a bit magenta biased, although the NX20 was much worse at this. But it might just be the atmospheric haze on that day, ...
  • I haven't posted for a while, as I've not been using my NX30 much, but I keep it around for use with the 50-150 and 60mm. Here are some of my pics from a walk around one of the smaller islands a ...
  • Running slightly off topic but I had a similar problem in the past - you might be able to get around it by forcing windows to map a higher letter to the drive to which you're backing up (right ...
