  • Got it. I can see what you're saying. I noticed last week when I was building the photostream site in my sig that it was really mopey the whole time and the wait for page updates after changes, ...
  • Sorry, I don't have a sugestion for you, but I was curious about what problems you're having with BlueHost as I use them myself. They've been fairly trouble-free so far, but just curious anyway. ...
  • You probably bought an adapter for the Ricoh KR or P/KR mount, which is a variation of the standard Pentax K mount. The Ricoh mount has an extra pin on it that gets stuck in the lens mount and ...
  • Indeed it does, at the very least on a purely technical level, or there’s no point in spending the money over lesser gear then, is there?
  • Replied in RAW files
    You've pretty much answered it already. We're looking at whatever RAW convertor's interpretation of the data is and nothing more. What that means for comparison purposes is that as long as you're ...
  • Replied in RAW files
    Again, comparing jpgs is meaningless unless you're primarily a jpg shooter. The E-M5 II should be sharper - it has no AA filter and a slight increase in resolution, and no one's arguing sharpness. ...
  • Replied in RAW files
    The G9 should produce more detail - it has no AA filter. That doesn't change the fact that it is limited when it comes to high ISO capability, and not just against Nikon FF, but FF in general. You ...
  • Replied in RAW files
    Don't you think you're being just a little bit disingenuous here? He's not intersted in comparing jpgs, which can make nearly any camera look amazing depending on how well they can hide the noise. ...
  • For me, the biggest thing is that I take almost no gear with me when I go out - no tripods, gimballs, big sacks of lenses, etc. All of that I find is a real PITA and just gets in the way of my ...
  • I would. My primary kit for the last ten years had been FF (Nikon D3), which I recently sold for a G9. I bought the G9 because I didn't need the bulk of a gripped body any more for what I do and I ...
  • The biggest question is, "What are you unable to do with your current lens lineup that buying a new prime will allow you to do?" Answer that and you will know which lens to buy, and if you can't ...
  • Just download Adobe's dng convertor and keep using Lightroom. Why waste time learning another software package when you can keep using what you've got?
  • Then quit photography. Even my F4s manual is 111 pages and my Pentax 645 is 72. There has never been a camera made that you didn’t have to invest some initial time into learning how to use it. If ...
  • You're probably right, but then that's why I think you hear so many folks complaining about having a difficult time learning a new camera or becoming well settled into it. You said it yourself ...
  • I can’t imagine anyone changing custom control setups on a per shoot basis. That would be confusing. I typically set everything up when I first get a body and then never touch it again ever. I ...
  • Replied in Well ...
    If you had a D2h then I think the top buttons won’t feel as weird as you think. The G9 is significantly smaller, so the relative button placement distance is actually about the same I’d guess. In ...
  • True, but I think we’re getting to the point of too many cooks spoiling the soup with a body like the G9. Will be interesting to see what Oly does with the E-M1x.
  • Replied in Well ...
    Like anything, you'll just have to try it and see what works best. I have medium-small hands and have no problem with the default ISO and WB buttons at all. They're no different than any Canon ...
  • I would have to partially disagree with you. The entire point of customization is to allow you to set the camera up in a way that works best for you, thus making it more transparent in use and ...
  • Created discussion thread Oly E-PL2 AF Indicator
    Hi, today I received an Oly E-PL2 body that I picked up on a whim for next to nothing and I have a simple question about it I was hoping someone could answer. When shooting in single point AF, the ...
