  • Replied in my thoughts...
    I'd take several different photos of each scene with different exposure and different focus settings.... if you want to be safe, stop down some as focus can be very different in IR than with ...
  • I like the photos and the concept is very creative... Still, the fact that the camera is so high tech kind of takes something away from it. When I read the headline, I had a sort of pinhole camera...

  • Too bad that they don't make this for m4/3... though I wonder if it can be used without the TTL features. if it was useable with HHS, but not TTL it might be good enough to satisfy me. Seems like...

  • I'm in the same boat, I've used PS a lot and do graphic design work as well (though for things like posters/layout, I always use a dedicated layout program) and I certainly don't know all of the...

  • I t depends on how much your shooting and of course how many mpx your camera does. I know that from my own experience that filling up even a 32g card takes a while with my 16mpx camera.... and I ...
  • If you want to get the maximum money for it, I'd sell the lens separately. unless you're dealing with a "kit lens" type of thing that the camera came bundled with and then it makes sense to sell ...
  • I'm pretty sure that you could get a Panasonic GH2 used (it's an older discontinued model) with the kit lens for that price. I have one and it's a great camera; in may ways as good really as the ...
  • Replied in no...
    While I do see that optical viewfinders offer a small advantage for certain kinds of shooting, it seems to me that the tech for EVFs has gotten so good that the quality of the image that you see ...
  • I think that the way to look at it is that the GH5 is actually a very small video camera for the features and quality that it offers. If you bought into m4/3 system for how compact it is but then...

  • Well... if you've gotten so much use from each one of these cameras that you've effectively worn it out (there are things that just don't work on the old cameras) then that might be reason enough ...
  • I would have done the same thing. I like prime to use prime lenses, but I figure that I'm getting more value out of ones that are both faster so that I can shoot in lower light and give me the ...
  • Replied in Hmmm...
    I think of it this way: Live wherever it's attractive to you; from a cultural and scenic standpoint. If you enjoy the place that you live and are a creative person, you'll find a way to photograph ...
  • Replied in My thoughts...
    I don't think that the format of a photo ought to be dictated by what fills the screen or covers a piece of paper most efficiently. I'd say that the format or really ratio that you're shooting or ...
  • Nice photos and I think that "luck" is really a relative term in this case. if you're prepared for the surprise, is it then really luck.... maybe part way, but also part skill.

    Note: I wonder if...

  • Fashion photographers use larger format cameras (ones with larger sensors) which are much more expensive than your budget allows. Still, it seems to me that more important than the type of camera ...
  • I could see that Canon thought that in order to get return on investment that they'd have to sell a sensor in a number of different camera models. It seems far less likely that they did the math ...
  • Replied in no doubt...
    While one might be a little better performer than the other for certain kinds of shooting, I'd think that both would be excellent all around and for action stuff specifically. Even with the lesser ...
  • Exactly! This is pretty much what I said, but you've made the point more succinctly than I was able to do. The R&D as well as the marketing/advertising would have all been taken care of when the ...
  • I don't really buy that argument... at all. Sure, you're paying for all of the R&D as well as for the materials, manufacture, etc when you buy the lens. The cost of manufacturing all of the parts ...
  • ... and if your shooting non-action type photos the Em1 might even have a bit of an advantage. A fast lens with the Oly stabilization system might give you more of a low light advantage than the ...
