About me:

Been shooting as a serious hobby since I was 15 (47 years). I study photography constantly as a continued life-long passion.

  • Created discussion thread Carlsbad Caverns Very Difficult
    On the way back from El Paso this week, we swung by Carlsbad Caverns. Amazingly, even though it is only a 7 hour drive from San Antonio, it is probably the only National Park in America I have not ...
  • I will take the survey. I just wanted to say that I love my Fuji APSC gear. I have almost all of it that can be had. I love the XF glass. But since I started shooting MF two months ago I am finding ...
  • Brick, did you read what I wrote about that review on some related thread this morning, (and on a thread the day of the review where I said "Shame on DPR!"). That review was a disaster for Fuji and ...
  • Replied in Ummmm No.
    Emil, If you are drawing that conclusion (that MF is not worth it or that the IQ is the same between MF and FF) from Erik's two comparison images, then you are making a mistake in my opinion. You ...
  • Jim, To add on, I shots a sequence of 8 shots at F5.6 and moved the focus spot from the cactus at the bottom of the frame on up to the cactus at the top.  When I looked ate sequence in LR I could ...
  • Yes, I meant 100-200. I love wide angle, but that doesn't mean I'm good at it.  Few are.  But I have taken some really good wide angle shots on my travels (along with a lot of badly key-stoned junk) ...
  • Very good point and I agree about the cropping, but was just trying to show what F8 looks like on a shot like that, which happens to me constantly.  I notice the difference because I shot so much ...
  • Here is one I shot a few seconds later at F8 but zoomed into 145mm, so it has far less foreground.  What foreground is left is much farther away but is still not in super-sharp focus (but much ...
  • I want it but I already have two other L Brackets I bought as they came out prior to this one being released with the hand grip. The Kirk I have is great but has no added handgrip. So I spent over ...
  • Beautiful.  Right on.... I know I'm creatively cursed for sure.  But I sure like shooting pictures. Greg Johnson, San Antonio, Texas https://www.flickr.com/photos/139148982@N02/albums
  • Created discussion thread More on GFX DOF at F8
    Jim, Chris, Erik and Left Eye have taught me lot about DOF and MF, or maybe shooting MF and pixel-peeping every shot has just made me more obsessed about it. Sure, I knew all about DOF after a ...
  • Max, I don't "need" 100 MP either, and I don't like the form factor of the s.  So I'm not sure what I am going to do with the next round of MF Fuji.  I know I would like a camera the size and ...
  • Great post!  I gave it a very rare and highly coveted thumbs-up. But you brought up a very sore subject - the disgraceful and highly bent DPR 50R review. I like DPR a lot and defend it to many ...
  • The answer for me is yes. It is right for me.
    By the way, I love reading DPR comments on any Leica review. Some of you guys are a piece of work.
    Doing need a Q2? No.
    Do I need Fuji GFX? No.
    Need...

  • Guys, Remember my Tripod Drill post from Oakland?  I explained the art of getting other people, and especially close friends and spouses, to carry your tripod (and if you are really advanced - at ...
  • Replied in Yot Tell Us....
    Erik, it is always dangerous to compare two images like that.  Too many variables, and if you were looking to make a point, you could pick two images to make your point. But it is fun and a good ...
  • Removing the inner ring of the Fuji lug has been talked about a lot on the Fuji Board.  I had a Fuji rep tell me not to do it.  But your explanation makes sense.  If all you are putting through ...
  • Claus, This is beautiful.  Love it.  You took it what … 30 minutes after sundown? Where was the focus point and what was the aperture?  It looks sharp throughout.  I don't see the aperture listed.....
  • Replied in Mauna Loa
    Great job Jim.  You continue to impress with your world-class macro flower stem shooting. Greg Johnson, San Antonio, Texas https://www.flickr.com/photos/139148982@N02/albums
  • Chris, you are not making me happy with this....  My Grandkids never look back at me with a great pose like that.  She is well lit.  How did you do  it?  No way that is natural room light on her.  ...
