Hello everyone,

I'm just back from a spectacular roundtrip in Namibia. I was in a small group of photo enthusiasts and we had a lot of fun, Namibia is a photographic paradise!
Unfortunately I had not enough time to visit the Etosha Park, so it was mainly a landscape safari.

These are some of my favorite shots. Hope you enjoy :)

Exif are intact.

Hi everyone,

For 2 weeks I have some member of my family who are visiting me from France In Montreal (Canada).

By the way, please don't be upset by my english, It's not my native language, and the french are world famous for being bad in English.

For the first day we visited Montreal, then the next day Quebec city, the third Tadoussac, and to end the 6 days we visited New York city for 3 days.
I always loved New York City and I enjoy visiting this wonderful city every time, so I will start with the end, and I will start with part one:

Panasonic Leica Summilux 15mm F1.7 Brief Impressions

Panasonic Leica Summilux 15mm F1.7 Brief Impressions

Determined to sell some food, isn't she?

A few days ago, I received Panasonic’s new 15mm F1.7. While I spend the next couple of weeks trying it out in the field for a full review, I thought I’d share some immediate impressions after trying it out for a short while.

Build and Design

The PL15 shares the Leica-inspired design language of its much larger (and much more expensive) cousin, the 42.5mm F1.2. Which is to say it’s a very well designed lens. It’s pretty small, significantly smaller than the 25mm F1.4, but definitely not a pancake lens. Still, it’s somewhat jacket pocketable on a small body. I had my concerns that the barrel would be constructed with inferior materials because of its lower price point, but it feels every bit as solid as the 42.5mm F1.2, if not a bit more so thanks to the lack of an OIS element jiggling around.

Like that lens, it features a handy hardware AF/MF switch and an aperture ring around the barrel that clicks into ⅓ stops, with extra dampening between the F1.7 and Auto settings to prevent accidental changes (something that plagues me frequently on Fuji lenses). I’m still ambivalent about the aperture ring’s usefulness though. I like the functionality in principle, but I’d much rather have a clicking manual focusing ring with distance markings and hard stops like on the Olympus 17mm F1.8. The latter functionality also works on any Micro Four Thirds camera, whereas so far only Panasonic cameras support the aperture ring. Besides, with Panasonic being more video-oriented than...

Featured Forum Thread: 'Ethiopia and Sudan' by edme

Jul 29, 2014 - 2:38 PM - by edme
I spent a month in Ethiopia and about 2 weeks in Sudan. Being by myself (and it being the low season as well, permanently so in Sudan) it was going to be very expensive to get off the beaten path and see the truly spectacular stuff so what you see here is the tip of the iceberg in regards to what these 2 countries have to offer.

First up is Lalibela, these churches were chiselled out of the rock 800 years ago, it is one of many important religious sites in Ethiopia - the people you see in the pictures are pilgrims who have come from all over Ethiopia and the place echoes with chanting in the early morning.
