    Chit Chat Re: My new photographic career

    Well Canon certainly makes some awesome lenses. I recently picked up the Nikon D4s, which seems lighter than the D800, and I love it. All camera systems have their drawbacks it's the person behind...

    Camera Topics Re: Pulled the pin and bought a new set of gear

    When I first got my D800 I almost had to get on nerve pills due to the complex menu. Nikon manuals are hundreds of pages long and usually it takes a third party book to explain it all. My D800 has...

    Camera Topics Re: Solution to the E-M1 EVF burn problem?

    That's a great idea. IR cut filters can get pricey. It would make a good DIY project.

    Camera Topics Re: Pushing the ISO limits of the E-M1, ETTxR

    The second shot seems to have a purple hue to it. Like the exposure, the shadows, have been pushed to far.

    Well Jason is big into processing but even at that a little toning down would be an easy fix.

    Camera Topics Re: Sony cameras with 5 axis stabilization

    The reason I first tried Olympus was because they thought outside the box. Nikon and Canon, also Leica have been slow to advance as not to scare their faithful off. But slowly they test the water,...

    Camera Topics Re: Sony cameras with 5 axis stabilization

    Sony bought into Olympus back when Olympus was struggling so they are sort of in bed together. I think Olympus is going to make lenses for Sony at some point and Sony is putting sensors in the...

    Camera Topics Re: EM1 Dammit!

    Would it not be just safe to shoot with your glasses on and not even fool with the diopter. For what it's worth I have an a99, a77 and a7r and have never had an issue with the EVF. I adjust the...

    Camera Topics Re: 4/3 vs FF

    Well the pros to full frame. Better dynamic range, color depth and lower noise at high ISO. When I print large the full frame prints and smoother and less pixelated. The cons, weight, high cost of...

    I worked a high end event last year and most of the photographers were older than me, I am 54, they carried two full frames each. It was more a Nikon vs Canon thing going on. But even though it was a...

    Well Godfrey answered the question and I agree with him. The IPhone, no matter how good the IQ gets, will not replace a good DSLR. But I am really impressed with the IPhone.

    There is almost zero buzz on the forums about the new Panasonic GH4, none. It makes me wonder if things are beginning to go south. I also would like to see an E7. Bring it Oly. Build it and I will...

    Point taken on Sony being all over the place. But they are moving at a blinding pace. Check out the continuos focus speed on the a6000.

    Business Topics Re: A Net Exodus?

    Yes I agree the E-M1 is more responsive and yes Olympus has the lens line up. But prices are close to the same if you compare quality across the board. A good m4/3rd lens is going to set one back...

    My point is Sony in changing what we thought was possible. I read tons of threads before the rx1 that claimed mirrorless full frame wasn't possible due to the distance from the lens rear element to...

    I would never say never. Who would have thought you could buy a full frame P&S like the RX1 three years ago? Nobody. Sony has a lens map of 12 or so E mount lenses in 2014 and the a6000 is claiming...

    Business Topics Re: A Net Exodus?

    I have noticed that even the most die hard defenders of Olympus here use other systems and not Olympus exclusively. It's almost as if m4/3rd is their second system.
  22. Camera Topics Re: For those that jumped ship and changed systems...(contemplating)

    I had the Bigma. One day I noticed a rattle and it quit auto focusing and a gear fell out of the rear. I wasn't overall impressed with it either as far as sharpness.
  23. Camera Topics Re: For those that jumped ship and changed systems...(contemplating)

    Well Padre it's the price of admission. I am with Sony and couldn't be happier. It did take a long time to get where I am at but I am glad I did it. I had rather have the camera I want and a bag of...

    Point taken Don but the other companies haven't abandoned a perfectly good mount and left their faithful high and dry. Olympus should have waited until all the bugs were worked out of the m4/3rd...

    Well Godfrey for me it's the price paid for admission and what I expect for my money. I pay money and I don't expect to manual focus. Would you buy a luxury car if the AC only worked 80% of the time?...
