PSE 11 works well for me, with other tools. I'll go with PSE 12 -- but wait until the price drops a bit.

Not a great place for the flash, either

Mavica FD7 was my first. One problem was it shot interlaced images as I recall, so it was very easy to get jaggies. The 10x zoom lens sure was a kick: Spoiled me forever for 3x lenses :-) Soon after I got my hands on an Oly C2100UZ ("Uzi"); I still have prints at 8x10" in my living room with that amazingly good 2 megapixel camera.

PC Wheeler: Odd thing: Cannot change ISO on all at once to say 3200, at least I could not figure out how to. And when I changed it for GX7 it also changed the part of the image shown.

It was! Murphy's Law.

On article Is the snapshot dead? (70 comments in total)

I think the "snapshot" is becoming the province of cell phone cameras. My wife uses hers that way a lot, and only uses a "real camera" (aka dedicated camera) when we're traveling. She also often shoots and then immediately shares the image via email or text message.

I'm older and more of the old school. I most always have a camera and seldom shoot with my iPhone.

Umm .. he's selling product, so what he has is best (of course).

In reply to:

flektogon: So, it looks like the sensor used in GX7 is identical with what the GH3 uses. At least that's what the "digineff.cz" claims:
Podle prvních informací by měl být model GX7 výkonem rovnocenný s modelem GH3.

Looking at the spec, number of pixels GX7 vs. GH3, apparently different sensors

I first read Socialmatic as Sociopathic. Scary when cameras get too capable a "mind of their own"!

C1in: might as well make it as trade platform for user here, rather than trying to open a store...

Not the sales at http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1056 -- but I assume you will have some profit from the GearShop sales.

There is that!

Since DPR is owned by Amazon, what it the relationship between Amazon and GearShop -- price-wise and otherwise?

On article French student creates SLR using 3D printer (156 comments in total)
In reply to:

salehdidit: in a few years, everyone will be printing their own bodies and putting in sensors etc.

That will also signal a dramatic drop in the amount of whining on these boards.

Like we all grind our own lenses now? Seems a waste of time considering the current price of cameras.

In reply to:

Maxfield_photo: The graphic designer who created the above image probably should have thought things through a bit more, the last thing you want to see coming out of your underwater camera is air bubbles.

Must be from the fish inside.

In reply to:

Alan Ernst: Looking at the specs, this could be a great lens and long overdue! If optical quality match that of major manufacturer's comparable f2.8 zooms, then the price indicated could be justified.
I do hope they get quality control / consistency right this time round (a big issue with the 12-35mm X). For this kind of price, I want to see corner to corner sharpness throughout the zoom range, no vignetting, and minimal distortion / CA.
What I like about the specs:
- size/ weight comparable to the dust sucking, slow 45-200mm, but the 1-2 extra f-stops will reduce need to resort to high ISO's, which is an issue with m43.
- love the environmental sealing and non-rotating / non-expanding barrel
- happy to see the same filter size as the 12-35mm f2.8, which means you can use the same filters on both lenses.
Hope they will offer a matching tele-converterAND come up with a fixed, top quality 10mm f2.8 wideangle lens w. filter thread a.s.a.p. to round out their range of quality lenses.

Plus it won't fit on a full frame body. Tsk: Poor planning by Panasonic ;-)

That aside, this lens (and the 12-35) work very well on my GH3 and give up very little to the L glass I use on my Canon DSLR. Kudos to Panasonic.

Now for a 100-300 f/2.8 to replace the current model.
