  • Submitted a challenge entry I See You
    Placed 48th in the challenge.
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    No one is saying that it doesn't exist (well, one here has, but they seem to be an outlier), what's being said is that it's not as severe as some people are making it out to be. That's been my ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    Agreed. For someone who already has an EM1-III, I'd agree that getting a G9 isn't really worth it unless you maybe happen to like the interface/shooting experience/lenses better perhaps. Since you ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    Fair enough, you know you. As long as you're happy with what you chose, rock it.
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    To be fair, you have to remember that not everybody uses the EVF with the same settings, so they may very well not see the pincushioning to the extent others might. The photo above shows the EVF ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    Everyone's different, but I think you're really over-playing the viewfinder issues. Pincushion drives some people insane just because, but the truth is it's very minor in reality. It's never been ...
  • Replied in G9, any good?
    As long as you found a camera that works for you, great - the EM1-II is a decent piece of kit. About the G9 it's a shame you didn't give it more time. The shutter may feel odd if you've only used ...
  • Nikon D3. Shot it for ten years and it still was able to take saleable shots for a lot of the work I do. Great camera all around, partially regret selling it, but it wasn't being used enough anymore. ...
  • I have a Holiday just like that sitting up on my desk right now. Definitely 127 film. Think mine’s from ‘57, but don’t quote me. Have the original box too.
  • Replied in they could but
    Hey - remember the Ricoh GXR?! Proabably not, because it failed despite being a well-made and innovative design. Modular, multi-format, simple interface and lightweight. Dead because no one, in ...
  • I voted MILC. Mostly because with an EVF the overall viewfinder image size is usually larger than what you'd get from an OVF. Otherwise, I could live with either MILC or DSLR and be fine.
  • I can't advise of any apps off the top of my head, but many mid to high level cameras offer the feature to save/load settings to/from a card. My old Nikon D3 did this, and my current Panasonic G9 ...
  • I just use D-76. It's cheap. It's reliable. It gives me the results I want. I did try XTOL for a little while, but wasn't thrilled with the results - the overall tonality just seemed flat in ...
  • I bowed out of there last year when the first price hike hit. I was a member since 2009 and always kept it going because at $25/yr it was reasonable and a nice resource. At $50/yr though, with no ...
  • I've owned and used gear from almost all the current majors plus asstd. film gear. Never have ever felt uncomfortable or unconfident with anything I've used, and never have had a camera that got ...
  • Congrats, I’m glad it worked out for you! See, folks? This is why you don’t just give your photos away for free. $125 buys a fair amount of groceries, a nice dinner out with the family, or some ...
  • Indeed, and with not much snow either, sadly.
  • Donating a photo(s) is not the same as not being paid/free. You may not be getting cash in hand up front, but the tax deduction later on puts money in your pocket at the end of the day. It's a ...
  • No argument with what you're saying, that's a reality for photographers these days. That's why I recommeded to use multiple sources to come up a price to quote. It's also why I mentioned ...
  • Replied in I'd say ...
    True, true. No matter what any of us speculates, we have no control in the matter at the end of the day apart from the final decision to purchase or not.
