  • Created discussion thread Coolpix P7800
    What would be a reasonable price point for a like-new, little used P7800 that I would use as an 'always with me in case of' camera. (E-bay listings from Japan at $400 or more seem unrealistic given ...
  • Y'all have a look at the lcd-screen (hinged & swivel) and hotshoe placement (off to the side, on top of the grip) of the venerable Sony R1.
    Just sayin'.......

  • Decreased interest usually results in increased availability second hand/refurb. Sadly and unfortunately nothing of the sort seems to be going on for (say) the P7800. It would have been the ...
  • Had seen Snapseed before but not explored its possibilities  w/ curves sufficiently. Thanks for the heads-up for this app.
  • Sony produced a set of add-on lenses (wide and tele) specific for the R1 that can only be used with a special adapter (VAD-RA). On rare occasions you might find them on E-bay where they go for ...
  • Created question thread Darkroom for Android ???
    Anyone a suggestion for a similar app to Darkroom (does not seem to exist in the Playstore, iOS only? ) http://www.iso1200.com/2017/08/dramatic-black-and-white-iphone.html This is something I could ...
  • Nice group of Ayrshire mix (bit of Brown Swiss), one would almost expect a Corgi or some such cow-herd dog popping up somewhere
  • Focus Numerique tested it on a D7200 here : https://www.focus-numerique.com/zoom/tests/tamron-18-400-mm-f-3-5-6-3-di-ii-vc-hld-3349.html
  • Just in case you read german : there is a book by Frank Spath : Digitale Fotopraxis - Sony Cybeschot R1 that I have found quite usefull in getting to know my R1. Don't know if it exists in an ...
  • They are NOT lilies (Liliaceae), they are Hemerocallis fulva (Hemerocallideceae), other than those 20-30 more species exist and more than 20.000 cultivars have been registered.
  • Still use my R1. I do not find it big & heavy, it is very comfortable to hold with a hand-strap. compared to the newest&latest camera's it certainly is sloooooow but depending on what you want to ...
  • And pleasepleaseplease let a GX9 have a battery grip.....
  • Still have&use mine, bought quite a few years back second hand. Cant for the life of me find a reason to part with it, although I keep trying to convince myself I need another camera. Depending on ...
  • Pentax LX, Pentax ME-Super, Contax G2, Ricoh GR, the Konica/Hexar twins, Minolta CL, Fuji GS645S...... and the list goes on and on.
    A special mention for my trusted Yashica Samurai 4X (probably the...

  • Replied in GX9, I hope.
    ...and how about a battery grip ? And if someone has a viable suggestion for a battery grip for the GX8 - if possible hassle free- I am outa the door to get me said GX8.
  • Got my s100FS 2nd hand a few years back. Still use it. Excellent IQ (for my purposes) and versatile. A whole slew of fantastic images posted in this forum after it first came out won me over. Perso ...
  • https://www.pentaxforums.com/userreviews/samyang-85mm-f1-4-aspherical-if.html will give you an extensive set of user-reviews. I had mine secondhand for significantly less than RRP, an absolute steal. ...
  • Replied in My old Sony R1
    At one time I tinkered with the idea of getting the adapter & add-on lenses ( I have the original close up lens, comes in handy sometimes). Gave that up right quick due to the size of the entire ...
  • Replied in My old Sony R1
    Thank you. Indeed, markets always provide inspiration galore. For anyone interested in more DSC-R1 imagery, there is a Flickr-group with quite a bit of inferiority-complex inducing photography : ...
