  • Replied in Yes it's flat
    One of my main criteria in choosing a camera was that it should be flat. My GX7 isn't perfectly flat but close enough. The GM1 would have been. M43 has many flat(tish) cameras:-)
  • But I would NOT recommend nose reduction!
  • GX7. Great camera in most other ways.
  • There's a recent thread on the same subject somewhere. I'll give the same answer: A non-working but oh so cool early 50s Contax D I inherited from my father and the thereto attached aluminium ...
  • Replied in Great 3D-dog
    To me it does. Probably the light is what does it for me. Just dof wouldn't be enough. Or maybe it's just because I like dogs:-)
  • Replied in + one more
    Hardly could get any easier than WeTransfer. Of course there's not a service that nobody would have problems with and the recipient needs to download within a week.
  • I've been seeing lots of ghosts then.
  • Ok, thanks, which 7-14 are you referring to? Have read about field curvature on the Oly 2.8. The Pana 4 seems to get very good reviews.
  • What do you mean by there not being room? How is it different to film cameras? IMO the reason M43 and most other WA lenses for mirrorless are retrofocal is that the deep well structure of the ...
  • Yes, particularly the kid.
  • My former camera (A Sony R1) had live zebra. I found It immensely helpful. If I wanted to "expose to the right" (and I mostly do) I just cranked up the exposure unti I saw the first zebras and ...
  • No problems with Oly 9-18 on Pana. The different UV filter on Oly cameras' sensors can cause problems with Pana lenses on Oly bodies (which can be fixed with a filter on the lens).
  • They do indeed. Actually they redefined it to mean without interchangeable lens. What's so hard about just saying fixed lens camera in the first place?

  • The film pack seems to have quite sophisticated tools for b+w conversion. In addition to rgbcmy channel adjustment like in Photoshop, it also has colour filters. You might need the rather ...
  • Interesting that the iPhone crops look clearly better on my (Samsung) phone screen both in colour and detail. But as soon as I zoom in (beyond 100%?) I see (sharpening?) halos and outlines and ...
  • Don't know how realistic the Leica path would be for you financially but if I had a "Leica budget" I'd  certainly not go for a Leica system but Canon's or Nikon's lens system or a combination of ...
  • Can I assume that sharpening and enhancing micro contrast and increasing local contrast are the same or is there a difference?
  • If you use your better (right) eye for looking through the viewfinder, it being at the left is an advantage since it takes your nose off the back of the camera. That significantly broadens your ...
  • If the lens resolves beyond the pixel density of the D750 sensor in the centre but below it at the edges (a very common situation) it would naturally produce a sub-maximum number on the D750 but ...
  • Replied in My estimate
    True, you asked about sensors, lenses, bit depth, file formats, and processing software. Most of the threads and articles on the subject I have seen concentrate on lenses and – IMO – often ...
