  • I still use a dedicated camera 99% of the time. But I will be the only one who ever sees 99.9% of my photos, so it really doesn't matter to me which device was used. In many cases, the photo ...
  • Replied in No
    This is true. But since I own my houses and cars, and have enough saved for private school/college for my kids, I am probably in a slightly different situation than many ( not that I spend a lot ...
  • Replied in No
    I always try to shoot at whatever aperture suits ( in my eyes) the situation best.
  • Replied in No
    No. And who would I have to justify it to? My wife is fine with it and that's all that matters. Like anything in life, don't spend more than you can afford to.
  • I have always found high contrast, like most of the suggestions above, and interesting shapes, to be the best things for black-and-white.  I do try to plan ahead when I am shooting ...
  • Film - Fujica stx1 First digital- lumix gf3- purchased open box at BB with 2 lenses for super cheap.  Didn't really know dslr vs mirrorless at the time, but m43 has been fine for me.
  • I think they are a lot of fun, they require you to plan ahead a little bit, and they're not overloaded with a bunch of crazy controls like my newer gear is. Most of my older gear are enthusiast ...
  • I thought one of the newer Panasonic FZX000 models had some weather proofing on it. It would certainly cost more than the FZ1000 or fz300. but that might do the trick. I think you're better off ...
  • Replied in Envy is bad
    The camera fits a niche and/or suits somebody's needs, so I say it's a good thing. M43, which is routinely derided on many of these forums, is way more of a system than I need,  but there are ...
  • It's a fair question, especially on a gear obsessed site like DPR. No, I did not buy it, but I was kindly given a Canon s90 from a forum member here about 2 years ago. I was actively looking for an ...
  • Size, video quality ( an m43 feature somewhat ahead of other formats circa 2011-15), and lens quality. This, as it relates to m43 specifically.  Been using m43 for about 9 years now. Would likely ...
  • Northfield, MN. Not the best shot technically, but fall has arrived here.... Or, maybe not. Northfield, MN.
  • I think so. We've also got infrared and various other variations as well.  Given enough time and energy, or, possibly enough time and boredom , somebody would have figured out black-and-white at ...
  • Rockwell Rd, Mt. Greylock, Berkshire County.
  • There have been interesting discussions about this here and elsewhere. I certainly don't know how to define it but like the famous quote, "I know it when I see it." I once did an experiment with my ...
  • I often bring two 1" or 1/1.7" compact cameras with me now instead of m43. Usually one for wide angle and low light ( Canon g7x, s90 or Oly xz1), and one for telephoto ( rx100m6  or tz/zs100). ...
  • The most important lens will depend on each individual photographer's needs. For me it is the 12-40, and 40-150F 2.8 lenses from Olympus.  I could actually throw away all of my other lenses and for ...
  • I think this is a very fair assessment. Those thoughts have gone through my head and I'm sure many others as well, but I'm going to stay with M43 and compact cameras. The only thing I might suggest ...
  • Keep in mind the 12-100 is a 24-200 focal length equivalent in FF. I'm staying out all the mud slinging about F4 on m43 vs FF, and whether cropping FF is better than out of the box m43....... I ...
  • A 50-250F4 would be great. I have debated multiple times getting the 90-250f2.8  43 lens,  But I hesitate to spend that much on something that is probably at least 10 years old, And I don't know ...
