    Flickr Pro 25% discount pre-announcemnt

    Torn on Flickr myself with all the various places I have photos. Google Photos: Free, great for sharing, excellent searching features. I almost want it to be my "every day archive" since the smartphone pics go there. Except, it's a huge pool of everything. Also, unlikely, but what if they...

    Small bag recommendation

    So... it's been a while. But anyone find any alternatives to the $2 nikon that are canvas? This thing is amazing for $2, lol. But I'll always prefer a canvas one if I can. That National Geographic NG 1153 comes close, only if it was black.

    OMD EM1.2 vs EM5.3

    It's a marginal difference, yes. But that just reminded me, it's probably bad for Joe because his supply of batteries are basically useless :( This was actually a big bummer to me. And if I had to buy new batteries anyway, should I just go EM1.2 (I know, the battery costs are.. eh... but I have...

    OMD EM1.2 vs EM5.3

    I'll echo the EM1.2 just because you've gone through what sounds like hell with the EM5.2. I'm personally leaning to the EM5.3 because of size. I don't use a grip for the most part, so it's still a savings of space (and even more weight now, albeit not that much) for me. But even then, a used...

    Bags and more bags

    Thanks, man, no need to apologize! Pretty sure everyone is understanding, lol. The lack of user (or even promoted) reviews isn't your fault. Also, I cracked when I saw the cassette size reference, lol. Then the VHS... pretty good frame of reference, actually. Smaller than I thought! Also, it...

    Bags and more bags

    agreed :) Debating on the 3L vs 6L. I feel like the 3L wins since the 6L gains more height than I need. But I always want to carry water with me somehow :(

    Pen F or Em5 mark iii

    E-M5mkIII because you can just take your batteries over, heh. You'll probably like the feel of the Pen more, but have you held the E-M5mkIII yet? I missed out on the local tour, but I'd honestly rather have the E-M5mkIII. I miss the larger viewfinder (even if it'll be a little smaller in...

    E-M5 mk III released at US$1199

    @Zairski how did the EVF compare to your E-M5mk2? While not a big upgrade, it's exactly what I wanted... just disappointing price relative to the competition. I missed the large magnification as I've been using a PEN-F, but a better eye relief would be quite nice.

    E-M5 mk III released at US$1199

    Honestly, aesthetics. I'm already committed with silver lenses :) But seriously, I just like the look of the two tone.

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    Wouldn't surprise me, but what makes the BLS-50 more modern? I would have argued they should have made everything with the BLN-1 instead :) If the answer is to make smaller devices... I'm going with a hard disagree with that decision, heh.

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    Honestly, it's not the capacity for me (though, it hurts too, heh). My E-M5mk1, mk2, and PEN-F all share the same battery. This is like a light slap in the face for existing users.

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    I'll wait for the official word on this. USB 2.0 alone doesn't mean anything. It could still be USB-C. And you can still charge over microUSB. Might not be able to run the camera at the same time. Not that I'm optimistic... but I'll hold on it.

    Did the veiwfinder magnification drop? Not too much, but that's another minor ding for me ☹️.

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    I'd still buy, unfortunately. I just really like the two tone look, heh. Also, this grip looks way less prominent than originally though, lol. If it's big enough of a jump... I may succumb and sell the PEN-F to complete the E-M5 lineup. Though, dammit.. keep forgetting the battery change :(

    Can you link the bag? That looks very close to the size I want. I have a Bowery, but I'm finding it ultimately too small because I want to always have water with me, lol. And my R5 is just a bit too bulky/deep. edit: nm, I found it, lol. "waxed canvas camera bag" on aliexpress also pulls it...

    Which post ratings are essential?

    I voted Like/Agree/Funny/Sad.... but I would almost say maybe have just three.. Like/Funny/Sad just to make things simple. "Like" feels like it encompasses agreement/informative. It's useful in someway. Funny gets us some humor. Sad gives us an opposite emotion to like because we want it there.

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    I have always preferred the tilt after using fully articulating for a while. I'm willing to sacrifice the other downsides because it's just so fast to go waist level or up high to grab a shot. I also don't feel like I'm at risk breaking it. I'd love the Panasonic S1/Pentax K1/Fuji X-T3 style...

    Sony A7R4

    I'd much rather get better CAF, better dynamic range, and better high ISO (w/o sacrifice to the low end) first. Then we can start talking 30MP+ Also, I'm waiting for software to better utilize all my cores so I can process all this crap, heh.

    Goodbye LR?

    Good to know it seems to be possible. Still don't think the learning curve is worth it for me yet, but we'll see where Adobe goes in the next couple years (yes, I'm also aware that this is how they're getting me stringing us along).
  27. Linh

    Goodbye LR?

    It evaluates the exposure of the current image (how I've adjusted it) and proceeds to match the exposure of it for all the photos in that scene I've selected. It's not just syncing settings, but actually trying to match exposure.
  28. Linh

    Goodbye LR?

    Yeah, I'll likely look again as I'm on the fence with Adobe (because I fundamentally want what Adobe is trying to do, just not how...). But it was more a statement to how much of a learning curve it is. I've come reliant on Ctrl+Alt+Shift+M, heh.
  29. Linh

    Goodbye LR?

    I want to like this, but man... just trying to do multiple localized adjustments had me walk away. Adobe is pushing that limit on how much familiarity is worth it. Also, I had the opposite experience on stability... it crashed 3-4 times just trying to load. No idea what caused it to actually...

    Your Ideal m43 Travel Kit? (No more than 3 lenses)

    I like my 17/1.8 and 45/1.8. If I'm feeling it, both mounted so I don't have to switch lenses, heh. Though, the ricoh GR keeps calling me back as the carry all. I have a love/hate relationship with it. Contemplated the 8-18, but it's too bulky. If I'm traveling specifically for photography...

    Adobe price rise rumor, again

    I really wanted to like this, but felt it was just too early still (as of last year, haven't re-tried this year). I still contend I like the LR CC goal, mobile/desktop editing synced. But LR CC isn't anywhere near ready to at $10/mo alone, IMO. And not sure it's worth it in the long run anymore...

    Olympus registers ‘IM015’a mystery new camera

    Isn't canon running through promo to include the adapter and an extension grip for the first few months? Not to discount the expensive R lenses, but this is why I thought Canon would still sell a ton.

    Olympus registers ‘IM015’a mystery new camera

    Honestly, I thought that was a good camera, too. It was more they seem to be on point with what they're releasing (and yes, A6400 looks interesting as well, but I lean to fuji since they have lenses I'd get). E-M10mkIII felt like a sidestep at best (personally, I'd pick the mkII) . E-M1X is...

    Olympus registers ‘IM015’a mystery new camera

    I'm feeling very pessimistic on m43 after the X-T30 (and even the RP). It's becoming very niche, and likely very expensive. I am very curious if they can really get new customers on board. I have an army of lenses I don't want to abandon, so they sorta have me. But I can still feel disappointed...

    Olympus EM-5 Mark III news and rumors

    What exactly are you looking for from the E-M5III? I would argue it sounds like it might not meet your needs anyway, unfortunately. If bulk isn't a strong factor, run with the A7 if you find a good deal on it, don't wait for announcements.

    What m43 Really Needs

    You know, I kind of made an assumption tracking would go hand in hand with better CAF. But you're right, I would settle for just better CAF. I haven't tried the tracking on the new stuff, but just going by what I've read and seen.

    Discuss - Sigma 56mm f1.4 DC DN

    hrm, this is making me want this lens. I love my 75, but it's such a hard FL for me to use. It'll probably be a loss swapping, hah. On top of that, it seems like it might actually work to replace my 45/1.8 as I'd like something a little longer (~50). Except for the fact the 45 is just sooo compact.

    What m43 Really Needs

    USB C is coming; just hope they use it well (can use as a power source AND in camera charging; headphone jack option is nice for smaller cameras). But the number one thing m43 needs is probably a better marketing push (this goes along the line noted of playing to their strengths of size)...

    OMD E-M1X Previews, reviews, and official announcement

    The AF upgrade is certainly a disappointment. Not surprising, but I had a glimmer of hope it'd be close to sony's first gen stuff and at least track better. I still prioritize size, so I'm not looking for FF (unless someone magically decides to focus on compact f/2/2.8 primes). But in a couple...

    Olympus user running a Z6/Z7?

    On a FF, I'm in this camp. I actually would like to see some good, compact f/2 primes (though.. not so good as to compromise size). I'm not going to switch to FF to get a bunch of f/1.4 glass (ok, maybe one because I can). I'm in no rush as I just picked up a used PEN-F for some reason. And it...

    Olympus vs JJC lens hoods

    dang it, I've bought 2 JJC hoods for my 75 and neither fit (and some other brand, too). They were extremely tight and I wasn't going to force it. I feel like I have some early model 75mm that is an anomaly. I had another JJC hood for my 12mm that was perfect (ok, ever so slightly off on the...
