  • But m4/3 being light and more capable than phones is a great step up from a phone. But long term all systems are getting pressure from phones and these other choices will reduce to more niche ...
  • is the one you have with you.  In that regard I take a LOT of pictures with my Samsung phone. But I also shoot FF sony and M4/3 Olympus and I use those a lot too. In your sample shot, the left one ...
  • I think I know exactly the spot - this the parking lot right after the tunnel?  (vague memories) Nice comparison! Last time I was out there that particular waterfall had stopped it was so dry.   It ...
  • Replied in nice set!
    That's what I love about photography - you learn to 'see' things.  Your set illustrates this nicely!
  • Sign of the times!  I was looking at the NYC hospitalizations graph today and it's pretty amazing how good the NYC graphs look after being horrendous for a number of weeks. 66 hospitalizations down ...
  • We lost one of our group recently at age 14.  She was a longer hair kitty so didn't shed much either.  She was the quickest to purr in the group too.
  • At Andrew's suggestion since I posted right as the prior thread hit it's limit - presenting again in all her glory - Agnes - viewing the Catio from her lofty perch keeping an eye on the other two ...
  • Replied in Snowbirds
    Nice set - ones I've not seen around here.
  • Replied in Old Stuff
    Nice kit!!  Do you ever shoot any of these classics with film currently or use the lenses as adapted glass?
  • She's got a lot of personality.  She likes to sit in her perch, the highest point in the Catio, to observe and judge. Em1x - 45 1.2 wide open - left eye is in sharp focus.  ISO 200.
  • Ultimate resolution, everything else being equal, will always favor the larger sensors.  This is because the lens resolves it's projected image and leaving the size of the sensor out of the ...
  • Thanks Andrew!  I also did find a way to do it in Infranview as well.  In addition to Lock Zoom, there's a menu choice to lock view.
  • I have the red dot sight.  I find I don't need it for static subjects.  I am going to pull it out and play with it with this combination for some BIF attempts. Yes, that pray and spray is ...
  • Those are not your monitor :) The lighting was dimish.  Note the shutter speed of 1/250 sec ISO 1250.  The lighting was well into sunset.  Those are out of focus tree branches in the background ...
  • They are cuties!!
  • Fun shots!  Which 150 macro lens are you using?  I enjoy using the 40-150 f2.8 as a long range macro lens, but didn't know if you are referring to a 150 marco prime lens of some sort.
  • Being as walking in the adjacent state park is more the activity these days than eating out or going to the movies I ordered an MC-20 and have just started playing around with it. This is a shot of ...
  • Looking good!  BIF is tough.  I had an E5 but never tried BIF with it.   Looks like you're finding combinations that are working for you!
  • It is valid for the original poster.  To be clear, if there is enough light you'll get better results with the A7r4.  If there isn't you'll get better results with the Olympus. The OP question was ...
  • Stack in post......sigh..... You're on a trip, you've brought both camera systems with you, you want to know which camera and lenses  to grab for the days shooting events, you're going to be taking ...
