  • Replied in CMHC
    Capture was in raw, on a tripod, with about 10 exposures ranging from .5 seconds to 60 seconds.  Those were merged together in Lightroom 6 using the new HDR functionality to produce one file with ...
  • Replied in CMHC
    Our newest major landmark in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada: The Canadian Museum for Human Rights.  I'm dusting off my HDR skills and seeing what I can squeeze out of Lightroom these days. Refreshing ...
  • Image 1: To my eyes, this is the strongest of the set.  There is interesting detail across the image, both in the foreground structure and in the background sky.  Composition is generally a good ...
  • As an all-in-one zoom, I'm willing to have a constant f/4 as long as the lens is very good to excellent at f/4.  The circumstances I'm most likely to use such a lens are general daytime shooting ...
  • It would be great to have a longer macro lens as it's an area that would easily show some of the system's strengths over competitors.  Long macro lenses are pretty rare and expensive in most ...
  • They solve different problems.  Keep them if you can afford them both, sell the one you use the least if you can't.  If I owned both, I'd keep both.
  • I already have the Panasonic 14mm and 20mm pancakes and do not see how an f/4 limited version of those focal lengths would make my shooting experience any better or solve any photographic problems ...
  • Infrared/UV focus issues exist for SLR style cameras because they rely on a separate mirror and focus sensor from the capture sensors.  Mirrorless cameras focus and capture from the same sensor, ...
  • Looks like fun!  I've been playing with an old Canon FD mount bellows and lenses for extreme macro setups.
  • Replied in Same here
    When I looked at the last couple of years I was roughly evenly spread among five primes: the Olympus 12, 45, and 60mm Macro, the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5, and the Sigma 19mm f/2.8. There are a few ...
  • Replied in Lonely Benches
    Olympus 12mm f/2 + GH3, exposure bracketed and merged to HDR in Lightroom along with some tweaks for flavour.
  • between the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 and Olympus 12mm f/2.0. However, the spread between my most and least used lenses is pretty small.
  • Replied in Me too
    I found the same pattern in my shooting (always at the extremes of a zoom) so I swapped over to a prime kit with my last system. When I migrated to m4/3 I skipped the zooms entirely. I have to say ...
  • as has been pointed out, we already have sensors that are 36mm wide and lenses to accommodate them. Sony a7 cameras are small and support IBIS. Cropping in post is fast and could easily be added ...
  • I'm easing into video myself, partly for work and partly for play. Down the road, I aspire to putting together some small scale productions but for now I'm just dipping my toes in the water.  Be ...
  • Replied in Lonely Benches
  • Wide is more important than telephoto for my shooting and I quite like 12mm (m4/3) as a wide lens. Both systems are excellent. Other factors to include the full system for future needs (lenses ...
  • Replied in Highly unlikely
    High quality video causes a lot of heat at the sensor, and the floating sensor used in IBIS makes it much more challenging to create an effective heat sink.  Given Panasonic's past decisions on ...
  • At the risk of feeding a troll: Sony has produced DSLT cameras with EVFs and 100% coverage.  High end DSLRs include large optical VFs with 100% coverage.  No advantage here. Mixed bag.  There are ...
  • It's pretty tempting for me too, though for different reasons.  I also rarely need to go past 100mm and the constant f/4 aperture is good enough for much of my shooting.  With image stabilization ...
