    Digital Darkroom Re: Topaz Labs

    I like Detail, though I think it needs to be used judiciously. Black and White Effects is very good. I actually use the layering in FotoFXlab. Adjust can be useful, I typically reset everything and...

    Camera Topics Re: Just pre-ordered the E-M1

    Looks like a great body. If I didn't have the E-M5 and if I we hadn't dropped a boatload remodeling our kitchen I'd probably be pre-ordering. Congrats!

    Micro 4/3 Re: Thoughts on the mzuiko 12-50

    Perhaps my perception was biased by early reviews. It's certainly versatile, covers a very useful range of focal lengths, has a useful close focus mode, it's weather sealed, etc. But I think the IQ...

    Camera Topics Re: Still testing the different pastures

    I can be as much of a gear head as anyone. I've spent lots of $ trying to buy a golf game. I always think there has to be a better pair of skis for me to try, even though I can't come up with one...

    Camera Topics Re: Point and shoot...

    I have an LX5 with an automatic lens cap. I think it was from JCC but don't recall for sure at this point. It's worked very well for me. I'm a bit rough on it. I carry it in a thigh pocket skiing in...

    Camera Topics Re: anyone use a Sony RX100?

    At a certain point size really becomes critical. I carry and LX5 skiing and often take it kayaking. Size is not really an issue in the Kayak but I don't really feel like dunking my E-M5. An E-PM with...

    Lens Topics Re: Olympus M-Zuiko 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3

    My view is that it's a very versatile KIT lens. It's weather sealed, offers pretty darn good close focus capabilities, and is probably optimized for video. The box basically says movie kit. For...

    Camera Topics Re: GH-3..... my impressions

    Curious to hear your thoughts on mostly using 23-point autofocus mode. I've virtually always used single point AF. I've just not wanted the camera to pick the focus point. I even do this with my LX5....
  9. Digital Darkroom Re: Smugmug, Zenfolio, PhotoShelter, etc. Please Comment On Your Experiences...

    I had demo accounts at both Zenfolio and SM. Thought both were good and pretty comparable. I ended up staying with SM for no particularly compelling reason. You should check on the possibility of 30...

    Camera Topics Re: OM D

    I rented the 12-35 for a recent trip. I certainly think it's a step up in overall IQ compared with the 12-50 and I may purchase at some point. I'd say the optical quality is about like the Zuiko...
  11. Lens Topics Re: Help me decide the next MFT lens to purchase

    I think the suggestion of figuring out what you're missing is key. One suggestion is to set your zooms to 25 and 75 mm, leave them there and work with them for a while to get comfortable with the...

  13. Travel locations Re: Travel suggestions for traveling with a non-photography backpack

    I have some neoprene lens sleeves and a larger piece of neoprene. When hiking I'll usually just put a couple of lenses in the wraps, use the larger neoprene to wrap the camera, and stuff them in a...

    Lens Topics Re: The prime you can't live without.

    Really dependent on how one sees and typical subjects. Though not a pancake I'd tend to go with the PL25. Of the pancakes the 20. Just think it's the most versatile focal length. I'm really impressed...

    Digital Darkroom Re: Anyone use Pixelmator for iMac?

    Hopefully someone will jump in that's used it a whole lot more than me, cause I've only played with it. I basically liked the program and found it more intuitive than PS. BUT, it's not compatible...

    Lens Topics Re: m.12-50mm light-loss

    My completely non-scientific, non-systematic, and not very extensive observations tend to agree. I've only had my E-M5 a few days. Used the PL 25 one evening and exposures seemed pretty much right...

    Re: Tapatalk - is it legitimate?

    I've used Tapatalk on an iPhone. Didn't even realize it supported this site. I find Safari works fine on the iPad. On the smaller iPhone I find trying to navigate full web sites pretty clunky.
