    I agree with all this, but still holding out hope that by photokina they introduce a worthwhile successor to the GRll. I just love the GR and hope they never stop producing it. It is perfect for so ...
  • I have a gr and a grll. They are great cameras. At this point I would wait on photokina if you can, as you plan to do. But if my gr's were stolen I'd go out and buy another one today. I use the ...

    I should have paid attention to this before buying. You are right. I will look at the dell and benq monitors suggested in the other posts. Ordered the small NEC kinda hastily. And there was a taped ...
  • We have BenQ and Dell available here in France. Amazon fr has that SW240 for about 460 euros. Actually starting to look at another NEC to replace my old 2690wuxi which has so far given 9 years ...
  • Replied in thanks bmoag...
    I will check out some dell monitors. Already have an i1 display from xrite that I use my old, aging NEC 2690wuxi. It might need replacing soon as well. I'm noticing some very slight brown edges on ...
  • It's what I've done with my older macbook pro from 2015. A 4 bay akitio with a fan to cool drives. I continue to use spinning 4tb drives. Mine has the thunderbolt 2 connection but they are ...
  • It's a 2015 retina display macbook pro... I ordered a NEC ea224? a 21.5" with ips monitor. Sent it back because it was damaged. But didn't know it till hooked up. Had a bluish area that was liked ...
  • ok, osv, visualbrother, cosinaphile, i hear you, but, but none of my auto focus lenses will, uh, auto focus on the a7lll or the xpro2, will they.

    Also, I wouldn't buy the fujifilm. No tilt/swivel...

  • Dan, you might be right. But.
    I have about 12 sweet Nikon lenses sitting here.
    A few older, older ai-s manual focus lenses.
    A few older af-d lenses.
    A few af-s lenses.

  • I think simple is almost always better. Design a box, offer a few configurations, a few price points, and let the ‘pro’ decide what is best for their work.

    Each ‘box’ needs to be upgradeable. Hard...

  • A couple more 'things'...

    I miss the mac pro that could hold 4 hard drives.

    I miss the mac pro that started at about $1800. One could buy a great computer, spec it and change it, upgrade, modify,...

  • The last years I’ve opted for a MacBook pro with attached large monitor to handle my photography and graphic design work. I get by with it, but it is surely less than optimal. 16gb is really just...

  • I don't think you can get a dng file with the 'effect' 'positive film' without shooting raw + jpeg. The GR lcd will show the positive film 'effect', but you need to shoot with jpeg to have it as a ...
  • Sorry to hear about your problems, Stacey. It's stories like this that kept me from buying the d750 all these years. I wonder if I bought one today, if I bought a new one, would these problems be ...
  • If you Need it today, buy it. I suppose if you're asking here, on a forum, then you have time to wait. Waiting has advantages. No one Knows when a replacement is coming. No one Knows if one is ...
  • Hi Will, thanks, but yes, I've followed robin wong's suggestions about noise filter, have it off, except for the long exposure noise reduction... I don't know, I guess I just feel the jpeg 'grain' ...
  • Using an M1 mark ll. I usually just convert my color raw files to b&w. But it would be nice to have the b&w monochrome jpegs reflect the raw 'noise'/'grain'... I've tried grainy film l and ll and ...
